    Default NY Governor blames racism for his low standing

    Paterson Brings Up Racism for His Low Standing


    Gov. David A. Paterson said on Friday that the chorus of people who believe he should not run for election next year want to keep him out of the race because he is black.

    “We’re not in the post-racial period,” said Mr. Paterson, according to an article posted on The Daily News Web site, which cited an interview the governor provided to a radio program hosted by Errol Louis, a Daily News columnist.

    “My feeling is it’s being orchestrated, it’s a game, and people who pay attention know that,” he said. “We have a media that doesn’t report the news. We have a media that wants to make the news.”

    Mr. Paterson — whose approval ratings and support even among fellow Democrats have dipped this year — also mentioned Deval L. Patrick, the Massachusetts governor and the country’s only other current black governor, and suggested that criticisms leveled against him are based on race.

    “The reality is the next victim on the list, and you can see it coming, is President Obama, who did nothing more than trying to reform a health care system,” Mr. Paterson said.

    Gimme a break.

    Paterson is the biggest whiner. First, he whined about the SNL skit about him, and now he says racism is behind his low numbers. Generally, poll numbers go up and down based on your job performance and people's overall impression of you.

    The one thing he said that I agree with is that we aren't in a post-racial period.

    I too agree we aren't in a post-racial period. But, um, he seems to be having a lot of problems. And WTF is up with being mean to Caroline Kennedy?

    Gov. Patterson has made some very unpopular (and stupid) moves, like trying to impose an obesity tax on soda. due to public outrage that was canned.

    I do think the SNL antics were discriminatory. however he shouldn't take them so personally.

    He made some good unpopular moves but also cut things like the Special Olympics and interferred with the current school year's budget and had parents all in an upheaval. Several decisions could have been made with more wisdom.

    I think it is rather irresponsible of him to make such statements though. Of course racism exists, I would be the first to agree with you, you know me. But unless he has concrete proof of such accusations, he shouldn't make such statements. Then everyone will accuse politicians of color of playing the much-maligned "race card".

    Paterson's using the race card as a last-ditched effort to try and salvage his term, which of course means he just hammered the final nail into his coffin.

    I think I'd rather have him drive me out to L.A. than to be the one in charge of his re-election campaign right now .

    At the rate Paterson's going he's probably going to be his own campaign manager.
