Dumbest Political Comment Ever: N.Y. Gov. Cuomo: "America was Never that Great"

In an enormous political gaffe, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told an audience "America was never that great."

Kiss the 2020 Democratic presidential campaign of NY governor Andrew Cuomo goodbye.

His comment America 'Was Never That Great' drew laughs and gasps from the crowd today.

Cuomo, a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, was speaking at a bill-signing event in New York City, when he turned his attention to Trump's "Make America Great Again" mantra.

"We not going to Make America Great Again. It was never that great," Cuomo said, prompting some in the audience to laugh and others to gasp.

"We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged," he said. "We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of the population, is gone, and every woman's full potential is realized and unleashed."

Following the blowback, Cuomo's office defended his original remarks and criticized Trump's slogan.

Politically Stupid

Cuomo could have said he made an error, misspoke, or something similar. It may have blown over. Instead, like Hillary with Iraq, he could not admit a mistake.

I firmly believe that Hillary, not Obama would have been the Presidential nominee in 2008 if she had only admitted she made a mistake on Iraq.

Flash forward to today: How anyone can be so politically stupid is a mystery.

On second thought, we are talking about Democratic politicians.

I would think his base agrees with him on that. Nomination is still possible.

I think what he said is true and fine.

Democrats - the party of higher taxes, open borders, war with Russia and men showering in girl's bathrooms.

And they will never see the DJT landslide in 2020.

Makes you wonder why so many people over the last 200 years have been trying so hard to get here...

Those 15 million illegals are welcome to leave this “never been great” country and go back to their “great” countries. I doubt they will take you up on it though.

The rest of what he said was bad in a subtle way. "every American is fully engaged" includes more than just women. Without mentioning minorities, Gov Cuomo just admitted he doesn't consider them Americans.

He would never get the nomination anyway. Some people look 'presidential' and some don't. He looks like a low-grade mafia foot-soldier. Not even the Dems could warm to him.

So, when was America great? And what about it is crap now, so we need to make it great again?

Ha ha. I've got to agree with him. But I'm not American. And if I were, running for office to boot, I'm sure I wouldn't say porcus Christi in the middle of mass! In normal countries nobody talks about being great! They just talk about being Italian or being Finnish. Ha ha. Think how great America could have been if back in the day, when the men were pulling stumps and rocks and the women making candles, cheese, and preserves, the men would have swapped with the women and tended to the babies, suckling them on non-existent formula. How great would America have turned out then???

Since we are heading for a civil war anyway, can we please just get on with it, and kick these unpatriotic quacks into next week or out of the country, whatever they prefer. They can pick the country of their choice, and get free transportation. BTW, what ever happened to all those complainers that were going to move to Canada? Yes, we are headed for a civil war - either when the pension bubble pops within 5 yrs, or if they try to take out Trump.

New York deserves this a**hole as their Governor. Enjoy!

Actually, I have always admired quite a lot about America. Lately, however, there seems to be so much to dislike, that I sometimes forget about what I like. I still like the spirit of entrepreneurship , and the creative- destruction of your semi-capitalistic system. I think your health care system is crazy expensive and your pensions, by and large, are the most poorly run in the world. I am shocked at how much you all seem to hate each other (left vs right, black vs white etc). Combine that with a billion guns and its no wonder people like Blacklisted talk about civil war. The worst part though, is that somehow you managed to elect someone who is insane to be your president.

The statement was taken out of context. But that's par for the course in sound-bite driven America these days. Sheeze.

please. cuomo's comments were nothing compared to the idiocy of the make america great campaign which is often undefined except when it suggests racism and turning back the clock

The U.S. took on Germany and Japan in WW2 and helped rebuild them afterward, into modern democratic capitalist countries, that have never gone to war since. Americans of that era are known as the greatest generation.

Cuomo's stated vision of American greatness is equality for women. Yet he stands in the way of his vision of greatness. He won the governorship of New York, preventing a woman from becoming governor. If he runs for President, he will be working also be working against his stated vision of American greatness.

"America was never that great." - I heart it in some of discussions in 2007. I think It was Mr. Shiff with some opponent economist. That's just one of signals that the global crisis is just brewing. We just need the most expensive car sale, some amazingly high price on art et cet. We already had drop of real estate sales in California, in UK ... Now turmoil in Turkey, then Russia will follow after the price decrease of oil and gas.
