Fred Dicker and Carl Paladino<br /> (State of Politics)

[ Fred Dicker and Carl Paladino – State of Politics ]

The guy IS scary…..

I’m glad he has no chance of winning against Andrew Cuomo the current New York State Attorney General…

New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino is taking a very unique approach to dealing with the media. He nearly came to blows with the New York Post‘s State Editor Fred Dicker tonight after Dicker asked him what evidence he had forallegations that Attorney General Andrew Cuomo had had “paramours.” He accused Dicker of being Cuomo’s “stalking horse,” complained that the reporter had sent “one of your goons” to follow his 10-year-old daughter, and threatened, “I’ll take you out.” The videotape, from State of Politics, is really quite remarkable…….More…..

Hrer’s the video of the encounter taken with a cell phone…….

Andrew Cuomo’s Black problem…..

Since about a year ago when we knew New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo was going to run for Governor……

Things have been quiet for him…

Current New York Governor David Paterson has made enough noise and headlines…

With just about everyone knowing that Cuomo was the anointed front runner and sure bet for Governor …the media laid off him…

Why mess with the next Governor …make him mad..and lose your access?

GOP Governor Carl Paladino didn’t get the memo until this week…

He came out gunny for Cuomo last week…

Got a bounce

And started throwing political haymakers…

Cuomo got mad for about 12 hours ….

But with him safely polling over 15% above Paladino….

He’s back to running ‘silent and deep’….especially in black neighborhoods….

Against this background the New York Times has dragged an old saw spot for the expected to elected Governor…

New York State’s Black politicians….

If there is anyplace the Cuomo is going to squirm…

It’s on this subject………

And Black’s politician’s are probably pressing their complaints now…. before Cuomo gets elected and they lose some leverage……

Andrew M. Cuomo faces discontent among black elected officials and community leaders who say Mr. Cuomo has ignored them during his campaign for governor and is offering black New Yorkers little reason to rally to his cause, endangering his prospects for November.

In interviews, the officials raised numerous concerns about Mr. Cuomo, the state attorney general and a Democrat who has in the past had uneasy relations with New York’s black political establishment. He has done virtually no campaigning in predominantly black neighborhoods in New York or with black elected officials, they said, and has offered no major initiatives aimed at minority New Yorkers, spurring worries that black voters will stay home in November.

Some were rankled that Mr. Cuomo refused to take a stand on legislation enacted this summer that prohibits the New York Police Department from keeping records on people questioned during street stops but not arrested or fined.

Others cited Mr. Cuomo’s answer when he was asked at a recent press conference to comment on racist and pornographic e-mails that his Republican opponent, Carl P. Paladino, has admitted forwarding. Mr. Cuomo said he didn’t believe it was his place to characterize the e-mails.

“There is concern, and I think that it is something that Mr. Cuomo’s going to have to address,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton. “What I think people are saying is: ‘Where’s the campaign?’ ”

Those frustrations are likely to be on the agenda at a meeting set for Monday morning between Mr. Cuomo and black elected officials in Harlem. The meeting, which will also deal with potential appointments in a Cuomo administration and other issues, is being coordinated by H. Carl McCall, the former state comptroller, and William C. Thompson Jr., the former city comptroller and co-chairman of Mr. Cuomo’s campaign.

“We agreed a lot more needs to be done to mobilize the African-American community,” said Mr. McCall. “It’s not enough to say Carl Paladino’s a really bad guy. The message has to be, ‘Andrew Cuomo has a plan.’ ”……More….

Note…..H. Carl McCall and Andrew Cuomo go back a bit……..Check the linked story…….

Carl Paladino comes out swinging at NY’s AG and next Governor Andrew Cuomo…Paladino gets a Ras bounce!


Rasmussen announces that GOP  NY Governor candidate Paladino is only 16% points behind  Democrat Andrew Cuomo

Cuomo is gonna win…

And this is Rasmussen where talking about….

The GOP poster child polling company…

But I did say last spring that Cuomo’s numbers had to drop from the 30% point lead range…

I watched Paladino on CNN right after he won his primary….


That’s all I can say…

But this is a New York race …

And Cuomo does have some skeleton’s from his past…

So the media will get the most they can out of a manufactured horse race…

Just crowning Cuomo as Governor….. is kinda boring….

GOP candidate Carl Paladino wasted no time in bashing his Democratic rival for governor Andrew Cuomo on Fox News Monday.

Maverick GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino Monday morning ripped Democratic opponent Andrew Cuomo for “an arrogant, egotistical attitude.”

Appearing on Fox News Channel, Paladino said he is preparing several ads that will take aim at Cuomo’s “professional incompetence” while federal housing secretary under President Bill Clinton.

The Tea Party movement darling has knocked Cuomo for policies he says led to the recent subprime mortgage crisis, a charge Cuomo has vehemently denied.

Paladino, without getting specific, also said an ad will deal with “some personal things to illustrate to people that this man does not have the capability” to be governor.

“He has an arrogant, egotistical attitude about him that is wrong for the people,” Paladino said.


Showing no sign of tempering the combative style that helped earn him the Republican nomination for governor, Carl P. Paladino plans to release a taunting and belligerent letter on Monday that questions the manhood of his Democratic opponent, Andrew M. Cuomo, and derides him as a “king-designate” dependent on “daddy’s coattails.”

Asserting that Mr. Cuomo had refused to heed his calls for a face-to-face exchange, Mr. Paladino wrote: “Come out and debate like a man.”

“It’s difficult to understand why you, a polished veteran campaigner, scion of a political dynasty and king-designate, would fear a simple businessman from Buffalo, who candidly has never been in a debate in his life — except maybe in a bar,” Mr. Paladino wrote.

The chairman of the state’s Democratic Party, Jay Jacobs, said in a statement on Sunday night that Mr. Cuomo had already said he was open to a debate and assailed the tone of the letter. He added, “It seems Carl is melting down again.”

Debates aside, the letter itself seemed to quell any notion that Mr. Paladino, a real estate developer and a political novice, might morph into a more traditional candidate for the general election. If anything, its aggressive personal attack on Mr. Cuomo, the state’s attorney general, suggested that he had been emboldened by his primary triumph.

“What I find most offensive,” Mr. Paladino wrote, referring to his call for a debate, “other than the arrogance toward the public by your lack of a public answer, is the idea that this is somehow your decision. You have some sense of entitlement based on being the son of Mario Cuomo, a governor who left our state economy in a wreck.”


This Paladino guy is throwing haymakers from the jump, eh?
