President Barack Obama may be on vacation but the debate about race never takes a holiday.
The whole idea is to get me not to run in the primary.
We’re not in the post-racial period.
The reality is the next victim on the list - and you can see it coming - is President Barack Obama, who did nothing more than trying to reform a health care system.
No, he didn’t!
The New York Post reports that Obama’s people told Paterson not to drag the President into his mess:
President Obama’s aides were so furious that Gov. Paterson dragged him into a rant about racism that they sent a message sharply criticizing the governor’s comments just hours after he made them.
It was not an accident, it is a constitutional mandate. I became governor by a constitutional mandate.
The “accidental governor” reference bothered me then and it still does.
Whatever. Mr. Accidental Governor, meet “The Accidental President.”
Paterson was just warming up:
Part of what I feel is that one very successful minority is permissible, but when you see too many success stories then some people get nervous.
Paterson is legally blind. But none is so blind as those who will not see.
Paterson’s sorry job performance is the reason New Yorkers want to kick him to the curb. Indeed, in a Siena College poll, black voters prefer Attorney General Andrew Cuomo by 20 points.
