STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – When President Richard Nixon was neck deep in the Watergate scandal and faced impeachment in the House of Representatives and a trial in the U.S. Senate, Tricky Dick said he would never resign.
After all, Nixon was sure that he could beat conviction in the Senate, where he merely had to hold on to a third of the members in order to remain in office.
As gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson wrote at the time, any president who couldn’t use the vast powers of their office to keep 33 senators in line by hook or by crook wasn’t worth their salt and likely would have never become president in the first place.

I keep hearing that he won’t resign, and that he can survive this. But how will he have ANY credibility after this? The heavy hitters in his own party are calling for it. And if the New York State Assembly doesn’t give him an ultimatum, THEY become laughingstocks.
a weak politician clinging to power.
I predict he will get the Andrew Johnson deal
Why do I feel Nixon will be proven a classier act?
Can we start a campaign called:
“Hang in There Andy!”
Andy's entire life has been devoted to becoming President. Now, the arrogant ass has reached the end of the line. The dream is dead, just like his father's. He may take down his little brother's career too.
Cuomo must fight on.
He needs to channel the spirit of Bill Clinton, establish a legal defense fund with a celebrity chairperson, and never give up.
“Remember the Lewinsky”
This is just a distraction to take the focus off the inept potato in chief
“I keep hearing that he won’t resign, and that he can survive this. But how will he have ANY credibility after this?”
Both Clinton and Biden did much worse. Cuomo’s sin is he is not liberal enough.
Plus, the commie libs in New York are creaming over "Tish" James as the heir apparent. Cuomo doesn't stand a chance.
Cuomo is liberal enough and ruthless as a tyrant. But he has outlived his expiration date.
I think a badly wounded but still in office Cuomo is a perfect outcome. I sure hope he’s got enough cojones to fight to the finish. At the very least force an impeachment and conviction in the NYS legislature.
He may take down his little brother’s career too.
Is there any reason for CNN to hang onto Fredo after his current contract? In fact I’m sure he’s one more emotional outburst away from getting his walking papers. CNN has to buy political influence, yes. But they no longer need to buy political influence with the Cuomo-family. And so like a veteran athlete that makes too much money, Fredo gets cut. The particulars aren’t important.
Then again, he might be able to get a patronage job at a glass recycling plant in Brooklyn with Anthony Weiner, another New York Democrat politician and pervert.
Nixon loved his country and hated its enemies at the time, who were Leftists and Democrats.
Much of what is wrong with this country can be traced back to that.
That is an awesome graphic to post...:)
"I GOT NOWHERE ELSE TO GO!"
100%... good flick
