Governor Paterson Takes It To a New Level

From the New York Post:

The state's first black governor yesterday blamed his political woes -- and those of President Obama -- on a white-dominated media that he accused of taking part in an "orchestrated" attack campaign.

"We're not in the post-racial period," [David] Paterson said in a freewheeling interview on the liberal talk-radio station WWRL. "My feeling is it's being orchestrated, it's a game, and people who pay attention know that."

Of course, it has nothing to do with his incompetence, uninspired leadership, or failure to stand up for New York State taxpayers in the face of huge tax and fee increases. I don't care if Governor Paterson is an orange lilliputian, he is, and has been a terrible governor. For him to play the race card is an insult to the hard working New York taxpayers who pay for his crappy leadership.

Paterson continued, "The next victim on the list -- and you see it coming -- is President Barack Obama, who did nothing more than try to reform a health-care system . . . only because he's trying to make change..."

I disagree with government run health care. I believe that greater competition, tort reform and tax incentives for individuals are better reform measures than handing over a substantial portion of our economy to an inefficient bloated entity. Does this make me a racist?

Amazing... How low will you go Governor Paterson?
