During Libtalk Interview, Mario Cuomo Criticizes Obama's Priorities


Obama's Latest Criticism From Unlikely Source


In January, could anyone have guessed that by August, even some of the most loyal liberal Democratic stalwarts would be openly criticizing Barack Obama in public settings?

The latest example is lefty legend Mario Cuomo, who told a libtalk radio audience on Friday that the president's priorities to date have been out of order.

Here's the caught-on-tape clip:

While we're not going to pretend Cuomo has suddenly become a harsh presidential critic (elsewhere in the interview, he indicated support for ObamaCare and chastised opponents as too stupid to understand the issues), but there is simply no question that even a month ago, this type of candid response would have been unthinkable.

A lot has changed this summer, hasn't it?

Of course, he's correct: the strategy of simply "cheerleading" the economy into recovery mode, employed aggressively by a wildly supportive CNBC over the past five months, merely delays the inevitable. Remember "it's the economy, stupid"? Obviously, at the White House, it's been forgotten.

Interestingly, it's the second surprise from Cuomo in just the past week: earlier, he declined to openly endorse his son Andrew in the race for governor of New York.

  • I love how dems who haven't even read the bills call protesters stupid, when the really stupid ones are the voters who bought their bs and pulled the lever marked D. mpw

  • So he's openly criticized President Fubar and refused to endorse his own son for Governor.

    Well, they do say with age comes wisdom.
