Barack Hussein Obama is showing his true colors more and more, isn't he? First he calls another black man a jackass in mixed company -- knowing full well that his diss would be broadcast everywhere by the White House pool feed. And now Obama has asked one of only two black governors in the country to step aside and not run for reelection so Obama can place one of his cronies in that position.
Accroding to online reports, a message from Obama to New York Gov. David Paterson leaked just days before Obama was to travel to the NY area. The message urged Gov. Paterson to take one for the team and give up any chance of running for reelection.
This isn't the first time Obama has meddled in local NY politics. The message to Gov. Paterson is just another in a series of leaks that casts Obama in a bad light -- and exposes his true narcissistic character.
One NY Daily News headline this morning read: "Gov. Paterson is a dead man walking."
But Gov. Paterson remained defiant in the face of heavy opposition. "I am running for office," Paterson told reporters at a Manhattan parade. "I'm not going to discuss confidential conversations," he said. (link).
By sticking to his plans to run for reelection, Paterson gives Obama and his administration the virtual middle finger.
The NY Times reported on Sunday that the Obama administration fears Gov. Paterson will lose the governor's race and cost the Dems an all-important Democratic seat in Congress. But the Democrats stand to lose many seats in 2010 anyway if the national polls are any indication.
