New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made headlines when he said America “was never that great”. He has been trying to take it back ever since.
It is certainly not that uncommon for a politician to misspeak. Just look at President Trump and Joe Biden. However, I find it hard to believe this was an accident. The line fit perfectly with what he said afterwards.
This is part of a pattern some Democrats have been using. It started with the Obamas. They spent twenty years listening to a minister preaching hate. She said his election would finally give her a reason to be proud of America.
Some have set upon to strategy to appeal only to leftists, women and minority groups. Bashing America has been part of that strategy. It has brought the party to its lowest ebb in decades.
America’s greatness does not depend on who occupies the White House. Democrats are just as patriotic as Republicans. It was despicable that some tried to paint George W. Bush as more patriotic serving in the National Guard than John Kerry was serving in Vietnam.
The First Amendment gives us freedom of speech. People have the right to say whatever they want about the country. However, it is an idiotic political strategy.
