More Whining

Every now and then the wife and I talk about moving to another state. We hate the taxes, we're getting tired of the cold and the snow and we've both had enough of the self serving politicians and the endless catering to special interests. We still have a daughter who is just starting her senior year in high school so the decision whether or not to move will come next summer.

Now the Governor of the State of New York is moving us closer to that decision. From the Daily News:

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.

Seriously, I'm thinking of moving just to avoid further embarrassment from idiots like him. He's far behind Andrew Cuomo in the polls and is now using racial politics to garner sympathy or to deflect attention from the worsening state economy or to mobilize his base.

Or he's drunk.

Whatever the reason for these insane comments, Paterson and his aides fail to realize that people get very uncomfortable when politicians drive their state and their nation into bankruptcy and blame nonexistent factors instead of their own incompetence.

holy cow-
imagine my ignorance when I just read this post: I thought you lived in Texas somewhere, Sig.
Patterson's failure is his own, and the bickering in the NY state senate. Your taxes are unbelievably high, and like California WILL increase under that leadership.

Come on out to either Oklahoma or Texas, where taxes are low, and businesses are welcome!
Also, we're a right to work state, meaning very few union thugs running things.

You have Patterson in New York. Chicago has Dick-Head Daley, and had Boing
Boing Blago(who's lawyers are billing the Tax Payers).Then there is Say-What Bro Obummer. They all are spending money that God doesn't know how or when or where they will get. The back lash is getting better every day.
Good Luck Sig.
God Bless America
