Cuomo Goes Positive and Negative

23 Sep

Andrew Cuomo

Cuomo’s campaign woke up and released two ads today.  One positive, one negative.  First, “Nancy”:


Next, “One Job?”


Which do you think is more effective?

    The negative ad just bounces back onto Albany ineptutude and corrupton.  They played right into Paladino’s hands with that one.

    The Buffalo News broke the “One job” story but didn’t give it any weight and it faded away. But the NY Daily News’ Bill Hammond put new life into it. Now its part of the Cuomo’s powerful ad.

    Why can’t the Buffalo media pick up a relevant and important story line and run with it? Where the F*** are the Buffalo TV stations, sleeping? Do you mean to tell me all four news departments didn’t think the Empire Zone story was worthy of pursuing? Why didn’t the NEWS political reporter Bob McCarthy pick up on this story after his colleagues broke it? I don’t mean a two line blurb, I mean a story. Paladino’s candidacy has state and national implications. Why do the NYC newspapers give these stories weight and not the Buf media? Is everybody intimidated by that blowhard? Does it come down to no guts?

    Because the New York City media compete with each other for eyeballs.  People there ride trains and read physical papers.  The Buffalo News does not think it competes with much of anybody – it’s the paper of record – and fewer and fewer people read it every day, partly because we’re a car commuting town.

    The Cuomo campaign has an opportunity.. and an obligation.. to do much more. There is rampant frustration with state government. Some is unique to NY and deserved and some the creation of demogogic claptrap; but there is revulsion that is being co-opted by the tea party Paladino types. There is a vital need for a populist-left alternative that ties progressive solutions to real ills. The “mess” in Albany is nonpartisan, the blame for disfunction is shared and the “take a hammer to ’em cure” screamed by Paladino is opportunistically designed to appeal to intolerance, desperation and fear. I hope Cuomo does something more profound than attacking Paladino and claiming to care. Lets see some real commitment to both efficiency and inventive progressive policy. Not just more money thrown at societys’ ills but something truly bold.

    Art–you’re asking far too much of the hackerama that is NYS today.

    Ward.. We all should ask for far too much. Its a good starting point and a strategy that has served me well so far. Sadly tho you may be right. I mean correct.. I know you’re right.
