Another Great Quote from the Quotemaster 1

From the Quotemaster.

Mario Cuomo:

We must get the American public to look past the glitter,
beyond the showmanship, to the reality, the hard substance of
things. And we’ll do it not so much with speeches that will
bring people to their feet as with speeches that bring people
to their senses.

Well, the American public won’t find this at Faux News, that’s for sure.

    Although Cuomo makes a subtle mistake in his comment: implying that the people he seeks to persuade are not in their right senses. Good campaigners (and good leaders) have a gift for making you feel like their ideas were your ideas all along, not something you had to be awakened to. Reagan knew this. When you look at it, there’s an underlying (and possibly unintended) tone of condescension to Cuomo’s quote.
