How could you read the headline in this story and not laugh? The word words trust and Cuomo should never be used in the same sentence.
Seeking to portray himself as an Albany outsider, Cuomo addressed convention delegates for 24 minutes, criticizing the wayward direction of state government and pledging to "restore the public trust in government."
An Albany outsider? His father was the governor of New York for most of the 1980s. This guy received one political job after another starting right after he made his first communion. Einstein's insanity definition (doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results) is one of the most overused quotes today. However, in this case, I believe it is applicable. Cuomo is no outsider. He's the consumate insider. He was born into dysfunctional New York state politics and is in lock and step with the special interest groups.
How people could complain about taxes and NY government and then go out and vote for an insider, is beyond me. There's a reason why they call him Andrew "Status-Cuomo".
