New York Governor Andrew Cuomo rallied his party faithful at the state Democratic convention in Long Island, at the same time trying to temper mounting frustration from those on his left. Meanwhile, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie took flack this week for never mentioning the state of Israel during a speech before a Jewish group Sunday night, while national Republicans raised concerns about his leadership of the National Governors Association. Both men are considered possible presidential contenders. But which one makes the better candidate? WNYC's Andrea Bernstein and Brigid Bergin, and New Jersey Public Radio's Nancy Solomon, break it down in This Week in Politics.

The correct word is FLAK, not FLACK.

Flak refers to shrapnel or fired rounds, as in "flak jacket"

Flack refers to paid spokesman or press secretary and the like.

Focaccina, that's not a very convincing or cogent rebuttal.

Well someone is still drinking the old Christie cool-aid. I don't think many walked liking Christie. I think it was "group think" that had all those democrats politicians supporting him before Bridgegate. That's all done now that there is blood in the water.
