commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

New York State maybe following California to the poor house…….

State Comptroller DiNapoli has let it be known that the state is very low in cash…….There is a hope that January will bring increased revenue to the state…..

Both DiNapoli and the current Governor are endangered species after the elections in November……

New York’s Governors’ dad fires at Andrew Cuomo……

Basil Paterson…the ex-New York City politician has publicly reminded Andrew Cuomo about his past dissing of H Carl McCall……

McCall who ran for Governor  back in 2002 had Cuomo jump in and then jump out of the Governor’s race that year…..ruining McCalls attempt to gather steam as the first Black to run for Governor in the state…..Pataki went on to have  the job for two more terms……

Blacks in the state,  and New York City in particular,  were not very happy with Andrew Cuomo, who just come back to New York from Washington, and being the HUD Secretary fort Bill Clinton…..Cuomo has since worked very hard to mend fences with the minority community…..the punches from Paterson senior are to be expected….but Cuomo probably has the minority vote anyways…..with Paterson’s poll numbers where they are…..

No one is gonna want to be on Cuomo’s bad side if he and when he wins…..no one…..

Gov. Paterson has decided to run against his President?……..

Okay…it seems that in another twist in the turns of the Governor of the Empire State the following occurred…After getting a nudge from the President of the United States and the titular head of the democratic party to acknowledge that he has  slim to no chance to keep his day job next november …the Governor, following his wife’s lead has turned to fighting the president as his last best hope to elevate his sorry poll numbers on Todays ‘Meet the Press’ show on NBC with David Gregory……..

While the majority of New Yorkers agree that Obama shouldn’t really get involved …Only 17% of those same New Yorkers would vote for Paterson’s re-election…and it just gets worst…Only 24% of minority votes would vote for him, which one would think would be his natural base……..

I think the man is a good man…but that does not change the fact that when its all said and done …when the crowds and reporters are gone…it remains that  Obama is correctGov. Paterson has become a liability to his party\’s future in New York (he’s right …it should be up to voters , but it won’t work out that way)….

…….He has  pride and dignity…but he will not be the next Governor of the state ( and don’t blame Andrew Cuomo, he’s still only the Atty Gen)….enjoy the ride Governor…let go, and go out and do things with the knowledge that you are free from running again………it should be a liberating feeling………
