The Democratic Party may not need God in their platform, but according to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, progressives are literally on the side of the angels.
The potential presidential candidate to run against Trump in 2020, Cuomo made the ungodly comment while comparing the size of his halo with New York mayor Bill De Blasio.
“There’s no doubt that the mayor and I have political differences,” Cuomo said. “I don’t think progressive politics is a function of rhetoric and words, I think it is a function of results.”
Apparently never hearing the Sunday School lectures on vanity, the governor equated godliness with progressivism.
“I believe when you go to the Pearly Gates and our Lord says, ‘Have you been a good progressive?’ He says, ‘Show me the list of what you got done,’” Cuomo said.
“And I have accomplished more progressive results in this state than have been accomplished by any administration and I believe that is factually, objectively irrefutable,” he added.
Cuomo continued to rail against De Blasio for his lack of achievements.
“I don’t believe a progressive administration says it takes me to 10 years to build a jail,” he said. “Which, by the way, means it’s two mayors from now, three City Councils, which may as well mean it’s in never-never land.”
“Rikers Island, it’s not ten years,” Cuomo added. “Ten years means you don’t want to get it done as a priority. It took you one year to build Yankee Stadium. How can it take ten years to build a jail?”
The governor then took progressives to task for failing to produce results.
“The reason why people turned on the progressive parties, the progressive Democrats was because they talked a good game but they didn’t produce,” he said. “That’s the fundamental premise of my political philosophy.”
“I don’t believe a progressive administration tolerates more homeless people on the streets than ever before,” the governor added. “That is repugnant to me of the definition of a progressive administration.”
It might also be considered repugnant by some to equate holiness with progressivism. The governor might want to poll test that before any 2020 presidential run.
