The Knife in the Back

That's about how I would describe this if I were a Democratic state senator in New York:
Imagine that in some alternate universe, in 2010, President Barack Obama had encouraged Sens. Ben Nelson, Joe Lieberman, Blanche Lincoln, and Mark Pryor to create an "Independent Democratic Caucus" that would caucus with Republicans and deprive the majority of control of the Senate?

How angry would that make you? Well, that's exactly the sort of thing you could expect from a President Andrew Cuomo, considering he's doing just that in New York today.
Cuomo just sold the state senate down the river. And this flaunts the will of voters, who quite clearly returned the state senate back to Democratic hands. These so-called independents are a bunch of traitors and should have any and all party support withdrawn from them.

And, just to add, I will never support Cuomo for president, and I'm glad I voted third-party when he ran for governor.
