Governor Paterson told the New York Daily News there is an "orchestration" by Democrats to push him aside and the Governor suggested he is getting tougher treatment by the media because he is black. Governor Paterson later backed away from that statement.......
Governor, your own party is planning your demise........Maybe it started when you had the tumerity to spurn Caroline Kennedy....Maybe it was something else.....it could be the electability of Andrew Cuomo, and there is nothing political insiders like more than to be with a winner.
As for media persecution.....Some tough shots yes, but it was not racial.....You offended their choice for the Clinton Senate seat....They wanted Caroline and you gave them Gillibrand. The media took its pound of flesh for that.
But, make no mistake.....It was not about race.
I actually find Governor Paterson refreshing in some ways, but he cannot win and so far Mr. Cuomo has done a better job discussing issues. Realize you are done Governor.....Go quietly and you will be taken care of by the new administration.
