Now it's New York Governor Patterson (unelected, promoted into the position when Democrat Elliot Spitzer was busted with his panties down) whining that his 30% approval rating is not due to the miserable job he's doing, it's because of the color of his skin! And just look; Whitey is doing it to everybody:
Paterson alleged he and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick - both of whom are the first African Americans to hold their respective positions and are tanking in the polls - are being treated unfairly by the media due to the color of their skin.
The governor said he thinks the same thing is happening to the nation's first black president, Barack Obama, who also seen his approval rating drop due to his controversial efforts to overhaul the health care system.
"This state is not in the trouble that Michigan is in, Pennsylvania is in and Massachusetts is in, but you don’t see in those other states this crescendo about getting rid of the governor just because we’re in a recession," Paterson told Louis this morning on AM 1600 WWRL.
"And I submit that the same kind of treatment that Deval Patrick is receiving right now in Massachusetts, and I’m receiving; the way in which the New York State Senate was written about, calling them a bunch of people with thick necks - they’re talking about Malcolm Smith and John Sampson - that we’re not in the post-racial period."
"And the reality is that the next victim on the list - and you see it coming - is President Barack Obama, who did nothing more than try to reform a health care system that’s now 10 percent of GDP and will be 20 percent of GDP in the next four years only because he’s trying to make change."
Golly, where do I begin? Maybe with pointing out another thing that Paterson, Patrick, and Obama have in common - they are all hard-core liberals at a time when there is a tremendous backlash against that governing philosophy. Obama's approval ratings have dropped 20 points since inauguration; did 20% of the American people become racist after voting for him to be their leader?
Not to mention this Triumvirate from Hell are all Democrats, a party affiliation that is more associated now with socialism than freedom. Think that's got something to do with it?
And what about Governor Arnold? He's not getting love letters from the population either...must be because he's an immigrant, right?
New York baseball fans will remember the remark made by then-Mets manager Willie Randolph, who, when asked if he thought he was being picked on by the media:
As for why Joe Torre's calmness in the dugout was praised as a virtue while he's vilified when not ejected, Randolph had said: "Is it racial? Huh. It smells a little bit."
Hey Willie: If you had won more games, you would have kept your job. It's called performance, and it is all that matters.
Hey Governor Paterson: If you run the state better, you will be able to keep your job. It's called perfromance, and it is all that matters.
For all Democrats who are blaming their electoral woes on racism: Your employers will decide this November or next whether or not you keep your jobs. Perhaps you should concentrate on performance, rather than claiming victimization. Performance is all that matters.
Just ask Jackie Robinson.
