Cuomo is getting desperate

Cuomo Cartoons and Comics - funny pictures from CartoonStock

How are things going, Governor Cuomo?  How desperate are you these days?
We learned that Cuomo said this:
“He better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York. New Yorkers don’t want to have anything to do with him,” the Democrat said, all but threatening the commander-in-chief.
But Cuomo — who, like Trump, hails from Queens — wasn’t done. “He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City, people don’t want to have anything to do with him.”
Sounds like a desperate man to me!
Of course, Cuomo is facing the political equivalent of an Aroldis Chapman fastball around your head.
On one hand, New York faces a huge budget deficit of about $30 billion.
On the other hand, the Trump administration is going to cut some federal aid for defunding the police or acting like “anarchist cities.”
My guess is that the one who is going to need a lot of bodyguards is Andrew Cuomo.  He is the one in deep trouble.

1919: President Wilson failed to persuade the public about The League of Nations

It's important for presidents to make the case for war.  Otherwise, they will lose the public.

What could we learn from President Wilson selling the US public about The League of Nations?  Let's see:
"At a stalemate with Congress, Wilson embarked on an arduous tour across the country to sell the idea of a League of Nations directly to the American people. He argued that isolationism did not work in a world in which violent revolutions and nationalist fervor spilled over national borders. He stressed that the League of Nations embodied American values of self-government and the desire to settle conflicts peacefully, and shared his vision of a future in which the international community could preempt another conflict as devastating as the First World War."
It failed because the country was tired of war.  Also, President Wilson never made the case for post-war engagement.  

In the end, the treaty failed and the US entered almost 20 years of isolationism.
