"Jump on the Cuomo Band Wagon and we'll beat California downhill to the Finish!"
With bluster and blandishment, two large diverse transition committees were announced by Andrew Cuomo. Then more committees, the Local Government Reform Committee and the Public Safety Committee, allowed more blandishing of more egos. And Andrew blunted Al Sharpton's, and the NY Times' concerns and filled the committees with women and blacks.
Equal Opportunity responsibility now and Equal Opportunity blame later.
"People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything" ~Thomas Sowell
Do the committee members believe their input matters? Wake up. Cuomo's M.O. requires a someone to switch the blame to when the inevitable failure comes.
Meetings are a symptom of bad organization. The fewer meetings the better. - Peter F. Drucker
Questions for committee members: You'll have input? Did it feel good to be appointed? Are you also on the Cuomo Central Committee? Would Andrew switch blame to you? Have you read Cuomo's Budget Makes New York The Favorite Over California For "First State Bankrupt" Prize? Do you believe Cuomo's and DiNapoli's lie about getting a 7.5% Safe return on pension investments?
Hear into the future as Andrew says: "I picked the best people, all vetted by [insert committee member's name] It's not my fault, the best and brightest, including [insert name]on my committee approved my choices."
The latest news: The Fed greases the bandwagon's brakes, "Federal Reserve will slash its growth forecasts and predict higher unemployment when it releases updated economic projections this week."
Imagine, willfully going on the Titanic, or joining a committee on the overloaded Cuomo Bandwagon with the Fed's greased brakes racing downhill.
