Gov. Cuomo has lost his mojo, says those unnamed sources to the powerful Post Albany editor Fred Dicker. ********************* Those perennial “unnamed sources” have whispered in Fred’s ear that the Gov. has lost his mojo, and is now drifting leftward, looking toward reelection in 2014. According to Fred,”this criticism comes from one unnamed source who whispered to Fred that“He’s running around like a banshee, blaming his staff and everybody else for the problems of his own making,’’ said a highly knowledgeable source, adding, “I’ll be a dead man in Albany’’ if his identity is disclosed” “A dead man in Albany”???? These mysterious unnamed sources seem to be engaging in hyperbole. Fred ends his column with this laugh line: “The New York/Pennsylvania border is like the old Berlin Wall, with Pennsylvania being free West Berlin, with prosperity and good jobs thanks to gas drilling,’’ said a top New York business official. “The New York side is communist East Berlin — poor, humbled, and humiliated, with no high-paying jobs to speak of,’’ the official continued…” Perhaps Cuomo should travel to the NY/Pa. border, and like JFK, proclaim that he is an ” Ich bin ein Berliner (“I am a Berliner” ). This business official is implying that Cuomo is an old communist hack, like East Germany’s Walter Ulbricht. This official,with Fred’s blessing, is implying that Cuomo is a communist if he refuses to ok hydro-fracking. And we thought the Albany political rhetoric was softer than found in Washington. How wrong we are. Words have meaning; and positive words can have good results. They could change the world. The one minute video on changing the world with words is well worth a minute of our time: http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=Hzgzim5m7oU&vq=medium Dicker’s column this morning: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/cuomo_loses_his_mojo_qynJXUCoOav6HLTKcFUOSO
