The man is calling.
May morning. Tell him, No, I can’t speak now. In the car full of people. He says let’s talk. You say no. Chat starts. You say listen, I’m going to New Jersey. continued. You can’t stop this guy. Then you tell him you’re on your way to a funeral. No, that doesn’t work either.
He did not answer “No”. He says I am running. You say save your money and buy a house. He says I can win. You say that eight times loser can do Harold Stassen. He says I am not running for president. I am running for Governor of New York State. You say Elliot Spitzer will beat you black and blue. In 2006, Spitzer was funded, popular and had no scars from an osteotomy.
not listening. You stop listening. Run and kill. He is killed in his re-election to executive office in Nassau County. Runs for Congress, wins. He says he will bring back state and local tax cuts to help over-tax middle-income New Yorkers. This is the tip.
Guess who went back trying to get the only job he really wanted? Yes. The man is on the phone on his way to the funeral. Fifteen years later, either his hearing hasn’t improved or he’s as stubborn as ever.
Tom Suozzi is running for governor. Analysts will tell you that he sees himself as a candidate for the struggling middle class, people who don’t really believe the Garden of Eden has moved to South Florida. It will tell you that New York needs lower taxes, less crime, and a better environment. improved schools. Solve the displacement problem. He will tell you that he can fix all of that. Not much different from what some other people who see themselves in the governor’s mansion might say.
Can he win? harsh. Suozzi thinks he’s a suburban candidate and will cut large enough parts of Nassau, Suffolk and maybe even a piece of Westchester. He imagines he’s going to stop Governor Hoechul while the man in this column calls out the Million Dollar Juman Williams – aka Mr. All Right So I live in a below-market rental apartment and it’s on a tightly controlled airtight military base and everyone but me There should be more cuts In Public Safety Services – Brooklyn’s murder strike deals and the progressive voter for Cuomo’s eliminator, Attorney General James Swift.
Suozzi who should really be renamed Tom-Ever-the-Optimist also thinks they’ll love him more than he thinks they actually do in Queens.
The crowded candidate primaries were invented to empty the ego of forecasters. It is generally impossible to defeat the current rulers. But that won’t stop Tom Ever the Upbeat.
When he was told that spring day that a funeral was the day’s agenda, he was not deaf. There was no inflammation in the joints of the tongue even for a moment, and he did not shed a tear. His dream was supposed to be the day’s dream even on his way to the cemetery. Nothing new here. The same dream. The new contract. Same Suozzi.
