Political posturing is an interesting enough thing. Andrew Cuomo has had plenty of occasion to want to take his foot out of his mouth when talking about residents of New York City and still, he comes out here to get support.
Where did the good gubernatorial candidate spend his weekend? Why at the Brooklyn Baptist Church in Sunset Park of course. The details of this event will not be noteworthy in the grand scheme of things, what is interesting is why the heck did he go to Sunset Park and why did he choose the Brooklyn Baptist Church? If you happened to be blessed by his presence at your church this weekend or in the future, it’s something worth considering when you step into the voting booth next month.
Cuomo did achieve some noteworthy statements about his arch rival, upstart Carl Paladino. According to NY1.com, “Cuomo blasted Paladino’s extreme positions including the Republican’s plant to put welfare recipients in prison-turned-work camps.
‘It shows that he doesn’t understand the problem at all,’ Cuomo said. ‘I’ve worked in government, I’ve worked with families who need help, I’ve worked with families who have been on AFDC. They don’t need a work camp, they don’t need help learning hygiene lessons from the state. That’s the last thing they need.'”
It sounds as though Cuomo is saying, to all the dirty, out-of-work, welfare-case Baptists at the Baptist church he was in, that you should vote for Cuomo he’s…worked in government before? Or because Paladino doesn’t know what it’s like for us all, down in the trenches, doing the people’s business. Cuomo is with us!
It sounds like someone may have a Jesus-complex as he walks amongst-the-lepers.
