"Problem crying in infancy."

Some suggestions:

"...
helping parents help their baby deal with discomfort and distress through a baby-centred approach; helping parents recognise when their baby is tired and apply a consistent approach to settling their baby; encouraging parents to accept help from friends and family, and to simplify household tasks. If they are unable to manage their baby's crying, admission to a parenting centre (day stay or overnight stay) or local hospital should be arranged..."

You and Realtime aren't talking about the same Andrew Cuomo who was secretary of Housing and Urban Development under the Clinton admnistration? The same Andrew Cuomo who couldn’t wait to get in front of the cameras at press conferences to say how he was encouraging the federally chartered mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to lower their standards so every American can enjoy having a house? The same Andrew Cuomo who started the first threads to unravel leading to this economic crisis?
THAT Andrew Cuomo??
You guys really blow my friggin' mind sometimes.
When Andrew Cuomo left HUD 86% of the high risk mortgages were current which, was at that time, just slightly lower than "all" conventional mortgages.

Carol, you're competing in the wrong club and at the wrong level, some posting here have compression skills and memories. You have neither__sucks to be you.

Was it his idea to bundle subprime mortgages and sell them? Did he invent the credit default swap?
BTW, moron, GWB said the same thing about Freddie and Fannie. Hell, GWB even had taxpayers foot the bill for folks's downpayment.

Obama won in a landslide in the only contest that counts—the competition for the 270 electors needed to win the presidency. Obama has won 303 electoral votes so far and will get beyond 330 if his lead in Florida is sustained by the final count. The Electoral College is of course heavily biased to favor smaller states with far less population, so the president actually triumphed despite the odds against him.
Why are white guys so reluctant to give him credit? Because the 2012 election was a profound watershed in the life of the nation. Whatever else President Obama accomplishes or fails to accomplish in his second term, his re-election is in some ways even more significant than his initial triumph in 2008. He will be forever remembered as the president who opened America to a different future—more promising and fulfilling, more just and democratic than anything achieved in the American past.
It may be easier to see this if you ask: Who lost? Forget Romney and the Republicans. The real loser was the bitter legacy of “white supremacy.” That poisonous prejudice has endured in political reality and the national culture for two centuries. It still does, though it is now cultivated most zealously only by white Southerners who took over the party of Abraham Lincoln (who surely weeps for his Grand Old Party).
In 2012, white supremacy not only lost the election. It was a crucial factor in explaining how Obama won. Good for Obama and really good for the American people. Whose “status quo” are these pundits clinging to forlornly? Maybe their own. They have typically belittled the struggles by excluded minorities as “identity politics.” Well, yes, these people intend to be identified as citizens, fully endowed with the rights any other American enjoy. This election confirmed their goal.
The other big losers of course are the money guys—the billionaires who thought they could buy our election. No doubt they will try again, but now we know we can defeat them with old-fashioned door-to-door people-first politics. Organized money loses to organized people—that is the formula for our future politics. One hopes Supreme Court justices are reading the election returns. Those justices who regularly vote with the billionaires may ask themselves whether their ‘status quo” is in trouble too.
