I understand what Carl Paladino was saying when he ask the media why they don't ask Andrew about his paramours....It was not an accusation but a frustration over why Paladino gets reduced to answering those questions while his opponent does not.
The media ran with it as an accusation and when confronted by Dicker, Mr. Paladino compounded his problems by saying he would have proof in time. Of course the ambush setting did not lend itself to rational discourse.
Mr. Paladino needs to learn that plain talk also carries with it an obligation for precision and thoughtful. His utterances will lead voters to conclude he hasn't the temperment to be a chief executive which is what he is running for.
Four years ago, we elected a man who didn't have the temperment for the job and the results showed quickly.
I don't think Carl Paladino is anywhere near as bad as some portray....But he needs to put this issue behind him and stop fighting with the press on silly matters.
Paladino is accessible and blunt....That's refreshing compared to the tightly controlled and scripted persona of Andrew Cuomo....But someone needs to tell Carl how this game is played so he doesn't make mistakes like this week's
Carl Paladino now admits he really doesn't have any proof of Andrew Cuomo's 'paramours'
