I didn't think much about him one way or another prior to Sandy.

I am a registered but disillusioned Democrat who is more moderate these days and will never vote straight ticket anything ever again, but I must say, I am very impressed with Cuomo in the aftermath of this hurricane. I think he is the exact right kind of understanding leadership New York needs right now and I would be happy to vote for him next time.

Please stop wasting time in city-data forum and go do your job Andrew!

One thing I notice is every press conference before their speech, all the politicans standing in front
of the camera have to thank and congratulate each other for the job well done before addressing
anything else.

Well, something like this requires a tremendous amount of, and the right balance of, prioritizing, decision making and coordination. I think everyone involved deserves the recognition. I just think Cuomo has shown great leadership in the last week.

I know right? I'm sitting there thinking, just get to the point already.

The point was very obvious, it was an expression of appreciation. On the other hand, Moe, there doesn't seem to be a point in your post other than to attempt to insult or spread your bad mood.

Hope your day improves.

He's done fine, but how about showing some guts and overruling Bloomberg's decision on the Marathon instead of saying he'll leave it to local officials.

This guy is a PR genius. I don't mean that in a positive way. If he's in front of the cameras every two hours, do you think he has anytime to really assess and make decisions. He's just cherry picking and frontrunning Bloomberg on all the poli-favorable announcements and letting Bloomberg make the tough ones like the marathon and passenger car minimums.

My point is don't correlate visibility with accomplishment.

I think all Democrats are disillusioned - aren't we? (Maybe Democrats are disillusioned because we're the more idealistic but realistic party? Is that possible?) But I'm more than ever convinced to vote straight ticket. I rue the day that I voted for Bloomberg's second term.

But I agree about Cuomo. I particularly liked his speaking up about global warming.
