Posted on 03/25/2020 6:33:45 PM PDT by Helicondelta
Democrats are publicly talking about contingency options for their July convention in Milwaukee in case the coronavirus persists in being a public-health threat. But privately, some are also talking about needing a Plan B if Joe Biden, their nominee apparent, continues to flounder.
Some Democrats are openly talking up New York governor Andrew Cuomo, whose profile has soared during the crisis, as a Biden stand-in. Yesterday, a Draft Cuomo 2020 account on Twitter announced that Times have changed & we need Gov. Cuomo to be the nominee. Our next POTUS must be one w/an ability to lead thru this crisis.
Charles Pierce, the politics blogger for Esquire magazine, wrote a piece headlined With Two Words, Andrew Cuomo Established Himself as the Leader This Country Needs Now.
Lloyd Constantine, who was a senior policy adviser to New York governor Eliot Spitzer from 2007 to 2008, puts it bluntly: Biden is a melting ice cube. Those of us who have closely watched as time ravaged the once sharp or even brilliant minds of loved ones and colleagues, recognize what is happening to the good soldier Joe.
Indeed, Biden seemed to disappear when the virus began dominating the news cycle early in March. Bidens media presence abruptly shriveled, writes Kalev Leetaru, a senior fellow at the George Washington University Center for Cyber & Homeland Security. In contrast, daily mentions of Cuomo as of last Sunday accounted for 1.4 percent of online news coverage compared with 2.9 percent for Trump.

Ohhhkayyy. Crazy we much?
Go Bernie, go.
All Trump would need for an ad is footage of the presser with PPE stacked up behind him....while whining.
They serve Cuomo on draft? I thought they only had cans.
The dog faced mongrel whining about lives at risk while he signed the worst pro abortion law in the country. Yeah. Cuomo. Ain’t he the greatest?
I have doubt that a New York City liberal is a good candidate.
Well it’s a movement all right
THIS TURKEY PUSHED FOR SANCTUARY STATUS FOR UNVETTED ILLEGAL ALIENS CAUSING THE DEATHS OF NEW YORKERS BY COVID19. NOW NEW YORKERS ARE WANTING TO PUT THIS JERK INTO HIGHER OFFICE. THERE MUST BE SOMETHING IN THEIR DRINKING WATER, SAME AS VERMONT. WHAT BUNCH OF FOOLS.
Bloomberg already shot his chance. How many incompetent POS NY LIEberals do they need to run? Enough!
Biden stumbled, slurred his words, misnamed one of the nations governors, lost his train of thought, and had to desperately signal to staff for help while he was on camera.
Of the bowels!
It should be called burn Milwaukee movement cause thats what will happen.
“America was never that great”.
Good luck getting past that single statement Andrew.
Compared to Biden, he does have his act together. I suspect he will get the nod. What would match up with Trump look like? What are his skeletons?
