I guess Reverand Al tried to throw Governor Paterson under the bus at the meeting of black leaders called to decide the fate of the Governor. Really, it's their decision not ours. There is a sentiment of support for Paterson, given the suspicion that this firestorm of bad stuff and bad press must have been ready to unleash if the Governor had not been willing to yield to the Cuomo candidacy.
Paterson finally dropped out of the race but by then, party leaders had already unleashed the nuclear option and Paterson is having trouble recovering.
This is all good theater, but keep one eye on the budget process...We small business owning tax payers along with all New Yorkers are in for a serious beat down when it comes to taxes....The sugar tax is just the tip of the spear that is going to be rammed into all of us in order to keep all the six figure state workers living in the manner they are accustomed.
Paterson must now be sacrificed on the altar of bigger government and higher taxes.
