A television interview I did three years ago with the potential GOP presidential contender resurfaced this weekend on Fox News, Drudge, and all over the Internet. In it, Trump had harsh words for outgoing President George W.
Critics argue the Governor’s budget will unnecessary hurt those that are most vulnerable, but what has been lost in the budget debate is almost overnight, Albany’s political process has been redefined, and for the better. The credit belongs to one person Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Poor Mayor Mike
The mayor is going through major third term blues. Can you say Cathie Black. Now Black is only making matters worse as she didn’t just go away quietly. On the way out as School Chancellor, Black, after just 96 days on the job, raised the sexism card.
Cathie Black can hint at Sexism all she wants. She can declare she’s a warrior, but what she really needs to do is fess up and admit she was tone deaf with public school parents, and that she blew the opportunity of a lifetime.
If you don’t believe Al Sharpton is emerging as “the president” of black America, just look at who’s speaking Wednesday at his annual National Action Network conference: President Barack Obama.
Timing is important. The nation’s first black president has largely finessed the topic of race. But Obama is now facing growing criticism from some African-American leaders that he lacks a “black agenda.”
Who fights for Kymell Oram?
All of us failed this 18 month old who was in foster care and wasn’t even old enough to talk to defend himself. He will never enjoy his pacifier again, and it's time to again pull out one of those little coffins that are used for babies. WHY?
Obesity, early death, teen pregnancy. The Bronx is the least healthy county in the state - An open letter to Bronx Residents.
NYC education folks may not like the budget, but you have to give Gov. Andrew Cuomo credit from a political point of view.
In only a few months in office, at least on the budget front, he has whipped Albany lawmakers into line.
This a major victory for New York’s new governor.
Late budgets became a major problem in New York State for Andrew Cuomo’s father Mario, who had three terms running NYS, but the younger Cuomo has delivered!
It seemed highly doubtful when Andrew Cuomo vowed he would close the 10 billion dollar budget gap with no new tax hikes or borrowing, but that is exactly what he has done.
Gov. Cuomo and lawmakers announced agreement Sunday on a $132.5 billion spending plan, clearing the way for the state's first on-time budget since 2006.
A strong argument could be made if there were no Geraldine Ferraro, there would be no Hillary Clinton or Sara Palin.
With the bad news this week for NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg--his lowest approval rating in eight years at just 39 percent, the Mayor’s Spokesman Stu Loeser says quote:
“The mayor is making tough choices in a difficult time, which is what people elected him to do.”
Every year the lst fan in chief, that is of course President Obama makes his annual March Madness selection.
Drum roll please……….The President is picking Kansas as the 2011 national champion.
Of course all of us in the NYC area are hoping for greatness for St. Johns or at least for Syracuse University, but the President doesn’t have much expectations from St. John’s.
