Yeah, that’s right, Governor. The criticism of you and President Obama is because you’re Black. That’s much easier to accept than the truth: it’s because you’re incompetent.
Gov. Paterson is still blaming race for his his troubles.
After complaining on a Friday radio show that he is the victim of an “orchestrated” campaign to push him out of office, Paterson told a blogger that some people are uncomfortable with too many black pols in power.
“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 told political blogger Gerson Borrero over the weekend.
See? This is the mind of a true, blue liberal. Nothing’s ever their fault. There’s always some nefarious reason why people are against them.
But the Obama White House won’t publicly back this drivel.
Obama spokesman Bill Burton said Monday morning that the President does not share Paterson’s view that criticism of him or any other politician is racially motivated.
“In terms of media coverage of the President, he thinks that there are a lot of people who agree with him in the media, there are a lot people who disagree with him in the media, and there are a lot of folks who play it straight,” Burton told reporters in Martha’s Vineyard, where Obama is vacationing, Monday morning.
If Burton had just stopped at the first part of his sentence he wouldn’t have had to make up that other stuff. Of course Obama “thinks that there are a lot of people who agree with him in the media” because they are blatant about their man-crush for him.
As for incompetent NY Gov. Patterson…not so much. They like Patterson but Obama will always be the media’s first true love.
