Fracking decision may keep Cuomo in New York
Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s latest pandering to his liberal base, the banning of large-scale hydrofracking in New York, may shore up his political position in the state, which is all but completely controlled by downstate left-wing politicians like Cuomo anyway. But, in my opinion, combined with the NY SAFE Act, it all but guarantees that he will never be the president. These actions will not play well in key swing states like Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia, as well as in much of the rest of the country.
So we in New York may be stuck with him, but it is highly unlikely the rest of the country will be. And as long as the rest of the country isn’t the political insane asylum that New York has become over the years, we can always vote with our feet. Pennsylvania is beginning to look pretty good to me.
