I can't figure out if he's a Democrat or a Republican.

Gov. Cuomo shot himself in the foot with the so-called SAFE Act and his popularity has been all downhill since. He will never recover from it.

It just goes to show that bullying only gets you so far. Cuomo's problems is that he alienated the traditional Democratic base that helped him to get into office. You know, the one his daddy helped to build in the 80s. He figured that with corporate money running "political" ads in is favor he did not need them. So, he ran ruffshot all over the legislature for 3 years beating them into submission an each issue. Now, as with any typical bullying, people usually wise up say enough. This is that moment for Cuomo.

Who is Cuomo's base?

Well, then perhaps he should not have gutted the EI program and hurt thousands of children across the state. And he did that under the table and behind the parents backs. He is an embarrassment to the Cuomo name.

Governor Cuomo is a snake: his abortion bill didn't get to the floor, so he is now proposing the 'Women's Equality' bill. The first nine items are things anyone would vote for, but tacked on at number ten is the expanded abortion part, the previous abortion bill. A snake.
