Paterson blames weak Obama record for friction
Well, this is going to make David Paterson a lot of friends in the White House, as he tries to put himself in the president's shoes:
"If you look at it from their perspective, they haven’t exactly been able to govern in the first year of their administration in the way that other administrations have, where you would have, theoretically, a period in which the new administration is allowed to pass the needed pieces of legislation."
One of the things that has made the White House angriest at Paterson is his linking his woes to the president's. The last time was about race, of course, which made it worse
Quite frankly I think Governor Paterson is a nut. With that said, this is an interesting comment.
Will the Dems run against, or at least from, Obama next year if the economy remains weak and his numbers continue sliding? Stay tuned.
