Mayor de Blasio’s attack on Gov. Cuomo last week regarding his handling of the fractured state Senate Democrats is considered a first salvo designed to damage the governor as he heads into his own election year, some close to Hizzoner say.
De Blasio has spoken out against Cuomo over the years, most notably accusing the governor in 2015 of governing by “vendetta.”
But safely reelected to a second and final term, de Blasio is said to be ready to speak out more frequently and forcefully against a governor who has tortured him politically.
“The roles are reversed this time,” said a source close to City Hall. “He gets to enact revenge on Cuomo and is a good progressive. He can damage him as governor and kill his presidential chances.”
But by doing so, de Blasio risks his already tenuous dealings with Albany heading into the new legislative session, something some close to City Hall say he recognizes.
The Senate Republicans already despise him, the governor is not far behind, and legislative Democrats have been critical as well.

How? By convincing Zephyr Teachout to run again?
"The roles are reversed this time,” said a source close to City Hall. “He gets to enact revenge on Cuomo and is a good progressive. He can damage him as governor and kill his presidential chances.”
This sounds like a quote from an episode of House of Cards and not from an administration supposedly based on progressive or even democrat values. This source needs a kick in the balls or the ovaries.
This should also establish that the subway will never be fixed or extended. (the RGA actually had great ideas to extend transit further east, north south of the triboro areas which got overlooked by their dumb idea to stop daily overnight service)
I call impeachment for de Faustio. As for Mario's son, fire him next year on Election Day.
hopefully these two shysters destroy each other, what the hell is wrong with NY electing trash like this?
Big Bird better watch himself, Andy might put a "contract" out on dumb ass.
Love the pic....
"We are two wild and craaazzzyyy guys!"
>kill his presidential chances
Cuomo already did that himself by pushing through the SAFE Act. Vasts swathes of the county will never vote for him.
A dog and pony show to divert ignorant voters from the fact that he's owned by developers.
