New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo practices the fine art of political obfuscation and delay with two of his latest pronouncements on the subject of natural gas development in a state that desperately needs it – now.

Two stories from last week are harbingers of bad news for landowners and businesses who want to see fracking begin in New York: (1) Gov. Andy “Ditherer” Cuomo told the Syracuse Post-Standard editorial board he’s pushing off a decision on fracking until next year’s 2014 elections, and (2) when Gov. Ditherer was asked by public radio about whether or not fracking would be part of his attempted resurrection of upstate from the economic dead, he said “no.” He’d rather dither around with casinos and using something you never, ever thought you’d hear from a New York politico’s mouth: tax free zones.
