When New York Gov. Mario Cuomo announced he would not seek the Democratic presidential nomination, Michael Dukakis said, "I'm not surprised at his decision. Had I been working on my fourth deficit in a row in 1987, I wouldn't have done it." A former Democratic state chairman from Georgia, John Henry Anderson, was less diplomatic. "For once in his life, Cuomo did something right. He was going to get the hell beat out of him and send the Democrats to the cleaners again."Whether Governor Cuomo's decision was "right" is debatable; xTC the process he engaged in, though, was anything but right.

Everyone "knows" it is conservatives who are mean-spirited, intolerant, censors of speech with which they don't agree, anti-gay, anti-black and anti just about everything else, right? We know this because the left keeps telling us so. Which is why in this era of increasingly corrosive language -- note the overuse of the f-word in the film "The Wolf of Wall Street" -- and acidic political discourse, recent comments by Gov. Andrew Cuomo(D-N.Y.), ought to shock and outrage everyone, regardless of party affiliation or ideology.

With less than two weeks to go before New Hampshire votes, and less than four weeks before Maryland votes, polls suggest the formal Democratic candidates are not convincing citizens they are of presidential stature.In New Hampshire, the latest daily tracking poll by the American Research Group shows Gov. Bill Clinton ahead of the weak field with 37 percent, with "undecided" second at 23. Nationally, according to a Los Angeles Times poll, "undecided" is just ahead of Governor Clinton, 34-31 percent.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's coordinated legislative strategy to hold off a vote on homosexual marriage until he could corrupt Republican state Senators James Alesi, Roy McDonald, Stephen Saland, and Mark Grisanti needs further scrutiny by legal authorities. Governor Cuomo and his immoral pals effectively sold New Yorkers down the river by forcing through same-sex marriage, which most New Yorkers and Americans do not want. Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn recently said the vote was typical of the "corrupt political process in New York state.

"I think Governor Cuomo would be a good Supreme Court justice. He is a legal scholar who also understands the impact of the law on real people." -- Gov. Bill Clinton, June 16, on beingasked to name prospective court appointees."I'm a lawyer. I've always said I wanted to be on the [New York] Court of Appeals. It would be disingenuous of me now to say 'the idea of being on the Supreme Court means nothing to me. . . .'-- Governor Cuomo, Nov. 4.That there will be at least one vacancy on the Supreme Court in President Clinton's term is taken for granted in Washington.

Jerry Brown is a slightly comic candidate -- ex-governor, out of office, studied Zen, worked for Mother Theresa, dated Linda Ronstadt, rails against the establishment, for term limits, against campaign contributions from special interests. Insists "Washington" is the problem. Elevates a few bounced congressional checks to a presidential-issue level. The last candidates this out of the mainstream were -- Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan.We do not consider Mr. Brown another Carter or Reagan. We would be as surprised as anyone -- including, perhaps, Mr. Brown himself -- if he were able to win his party's presidential nomination.

Democrats smell George Bush's blood, but which hounds will they unleash to run him to ground? Sam Nunn, Lloyd Bentsen and Mario Cuomo are the pick of the litter at this stage. But there are others putatively eager to make the run: Douglas Wilder, Albert Gore, Bill Bradley, Paul Simon, Dick Gephardt, George Mitchell, Bill Clinton, Bob Kerrey and the omnipresent Jesse Jackson.One result of last week's election was that it produced no new Democratic presidential contenders and did little to embellish the reputations of those already considered strong contenders.

WASHINGTON -- Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton came under fire from a Democratic rival yesterday amid continuing speculation that another candidate may enter the presidential race.Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey, one of five major Democratic contenders, said he had "serious doubts" about Mr. Clinton's character because of remarks the governor made about New York Gov. Mario M. Cuomo.While polls show supporters sticking with Mr. Clinton, some Democratic politicians fear that his candidacy may have been permanently crippled by controversies stemming from his alleged affair with Gennifer Flowers and her tapes of telephone conversations between herself and the Arkansas governor.

President Clinton's State of the Union remarks on crime sound familiar? They should. In his New York State of the State address this month, Democratic Gov. Mario Cuomo, who is running for re-election, sounded so conservative on crime (also on welfare and taxes) that the Republican leader in the New York Senate said, "It sounds like a speech that could have been written for me." New York City's new Republican mayor, former crime-buster Rudolph Giuliani, said he could conceivably endorse Governor Cuomo.

We are paying the price for ReaganomicsThe chickens are coming home to roost and the Teflon is wearing thin. The problem is what George Bush himself called "voodoo economics."The middle class, and especially the growing ranks of unemployed white-collar workers, find it incredible that the president (on his way to another foreign capital) thinks the economy is fine ` except for our lack of confidence in it.It's becoming increasingly clear that much of the boom in the '80s was caused by enormous government deficits.
