WHAT'S RIGHT for the USA !

Todays word on the state of our state, our nation, and the world.

USA – NY – Why in this bottom state, Gov Cuomo has got to go! Reason #8: Hamlet of the Shale

#8: Hamlet of the Shale
Mario Cuomo was called "Hamlet on the Hudson" for taking so long to decide whether or not he’d run for President.

Like father, like son.

Only in this case, the younger Cuomo’s indecision on hydraulic fracturing for natural gas is costing more than just campaign jobs.

Andrew Cuomo’s administration told us they needed just "90 days" to complete their environmental impact study on hydraulic fracturing. That was almost two years ago.

Cuomo’s political calculus isn’t difficult to understand here: he’s too afraid of the environmental Luddites in his own party to allow hydraulic fracturing, and (rightfully) afraid of being called anti-business if he bans it outright.

So he does nothing. How’s that for leadership?

Meanwhile, New York is the only state that has shale gas and isn’t developing it, and the Southern Tier, which would benefit the most from natural gas exploration, leads the state in unemployment.

Just across the border in Pennsylvania, safely regulated hydraulic fracturing for natural gas has supported the creation of over a quarter of a million new jobs.

Upstate New York continues to bleed jobs, and the Southern Tier is merely getting a frustrating taste of "what might have been" from the spillover from Pennsylvania’s booming economy.

Pittsburgh prospers while Buffalo bleeds.

And that’s because Governor Cuomo doesn’t have the political guts to permit the development of New York’s rich hydrocarbons.

We get it – the Governor is deathly afraid of the left wing of his own Party after Zephyr Teachout embarrassed him in the Democratic primary. But don’t take our word for it: even Barack Obama supports hydraulic fracturing, and this May, Chuck Schumer said on MSNBC that "most Democrats support fracking."

But Andrew Cuomo hides behind an endless environmental impact study, a ploy designed to hide the fact that the only job he cares about is his own.

Earlier this month, the NYGOP released "Andrew Cuomo’s Bottom 10" to coincide with the Governor’s appearance on David Letterman. We’ll be recapping one of those items every day for the final ten days before Election Day. Today, here’s:

    "I should consider the speeches of Livy, Sallust, and Tacitus, as preeminent specimens of logic, taste and that sententious brevity which, using not a word to spare, leaves not a moment for inattention to the hearer. Amplification is the vice of modern oratory." —Thomas Jefferson (1824)
