    This is the most disturbing "win" of the entire election. Andrew Cuomo can be viewed on YouTube in a speech where he is crowing about how (as secretary of HUD in the Clinton administration) he basically invented the subprime mortgage. If you don't believe this, look at If a person who is this clearly responsible for creating what might be THE economic catastrophe of the 21st century can be elected governor, what hope is there for NY?

      Next to California, NY is the bluest state. It is broke, corrupt, taxed, and anti everything except for welfare. It even advertises it's welfare system on TV. Then they vote in more of the same. I predict insolvency in 2 years. Serves them right.

    What a loss for Texas. I am from Houston and have seen White in action as the mayor. Hands down in my opinion a better leader than Perry. What a shame. I hope all the best for Perry and hope you complete your term and not run for
    Pres in 2012.
