A Home-Grown Political Blooper of Historic Proportions

New York Gov. David Paterson

“I did not sign up for this.

I wanted to be lieutenant governor.

I had this grand plan that
Hillary Clinton was going
to become president. 

Maybe the governor
would appoint me to the Senate.”

SCATS ~~ I'm speechless!

When and where did he say this? And of course we all wonder why.

The worst part is some in Albany felt he was the 'best' they had to offer. THAT should give us pause.

I think the worst part is that speaking the truth results in political suicide.
RIP Mr. Paterson.

There's nothing wrong with speaking honestly, but that doesn't mean it takes him or anyone else off the hook. In some ways he should be admired for fessing up, but these are statements he should have made long before now. The guy is useless, and those that think like him will never last in polotics. This whole idea of taking from those that work, and giving to those that don't is about to run it's course (or at least I hope so), especially when it's done in such a less than well thought out way. People, myself included, resent the sudden increases in cost (taxes) associated with different parts of their lives, inparticularly when a lady in a full length leather, who drives a nicer car than them, is in front of them at Wegmans buying crab legs, USING A BENEFIT CARD. Our President is already starting to see where this ideology takes one's career. Fellas, don't let the door catch you on the way out!

Paterson screwed himself with his by-vote welfare giveaway; increased taxes on middle class residents and through the roof spending. It's no wonder his numbers are in the gutter. Same with Obama. He's now below 50% too because of what he's doing to this country. That's what you get when you believe their bs about change.

Any elected official at the state level that has increased spending, taxes and pumped any more money into social programs should be voted out! New York WORKING families can not afford the far left bleeding heart, take care of everyone liberals any longer. That beig said, based on my home, where I live and the cost of living, I do not feel my tax rate is un-affordable...that is if "we" got what we paid for.
