The Democratic crack-up
From the Editors of The Weekly Standard:
It’s a party of scoundrels and ideologues.
From a podium in New York on August 15, Andrew Cuomo took what he no doubt thought was a clever shot at Donald Trump: “We’re not going to make America great again,” he intoned; “it was never that great.” The governor’s deeply stupid remark came from his need to sound leftier than his primary challenger, actress Cynthia Nixon. That was a tall order, even for Cuomo. Nixon promised to double New York’s spending in her first year. The state budget, she believes, is “as much a moral document as a fiscal statement.” Yet the fact that Cuomo felt he needed to flirt with soft anti-Americanism in order to earn credibility with his party suggests that something has gone badly wrong.
