Obama administration asks Gov. Paterson not to seek reelection in 2010 (The Kenyan is Racist!)
NY Daily News ^ | 9/29/09 | Elizabeth Benjamin and Kenneth Lovett

In a stunning request, the Obama administration has made it clear to poll-challenged Gov. Paterson that the White House would prefer he not seek election to a full four-year term next year.

The Obama administration sent the message through White House political affairs director Patrick Gaspard, who met with the governor at his campaign headquarters for nearly two hours last Monday, according to a source with knowledge of the conversation.

"They expressed concern about his chances about being reelected and the likelihood his presence in the race made it more likely that Rudy Giuliani would enter the contest," the source said. "The preference is that he not run. That message was conveyed directly."

The bombshell meeting between Paterson and Gaspard occurred the same day President Obama was in New York City to deliver a Wall Street address - a speech Paterson was not invited to, according to several sources.

Hmmmm, if Obama were a white Republican and did this to the legally blind and incompetent cheating NY Gov, how would the media portray this?

Btw, Obama is half white.

Anyways, this gets no traction because Dems can get away with this crap. The media will spin this in the best possible light to protect Buttcrack.

That must have been the 50% white side of Obama asking Gov Patterson not to seek reelection.

The racial element is not as scary as the President of the United States deciding who is going to be Governor of any state...that is setting allies in powerful places.

I hope New Yorkers have enough foresight to find out who the kenyan is endorsing, and vote for the opposite.

Wonder if there's an ACORN connection in this thing, too...

From this website, mentions Gaspard...

acorncracked.com

And don't think it won't happen. President Obama yielded the floor at a February 2009 meeting to SEIU president Andy Stern for his thoughts on healthcare reform. In the White House, SEIU carries a lot of weight. After all, a former SEIU lobbyist is the Political Director. Additionally, according to Wade Rathke, White House Political Director Patrick Gaspard is also a former political operative of New York ACORN.

I do believe that this is the first time in History that a sitting POTUS involved himself so dramatically in the internal politics of a state. If it happened in the past it happened in the state that the president had hailed from. But I can recall, and I go back to JFK, no event such as this. As a registered Dem I will vote in the primary for Patterson just to register a protest against the unwrranted involvement of the interloper fromparts unknown in the politics of my state. Campaigning for your party’s nominee is one thing. involving yourself in the selection process before the party’s voters have a voice is something the Party Secretary in the CPSU would do. Oh wait...

If President Bush tried to do just one of the crazy things that Odumbhead is doing, the Dems would have brought impeachment charges against him.

“N.Y. Governor Orders Review of ACORN Contracts
New York Gov. David Paterson ordered state agencies Friday to put a 30-day hold on
contracts with the community organizing group ACORN and its affiliate, New York Agency for Community Affairs.

In a memo, the Budget Division cited Paterson's "continued efforts to ensure fiscal
accountability and integrity," directing the agencies to report "any potential issues."

In Washington, the House and Senate separately voted this week to deny all federal funds
for ACORN in a GOP-led strike against the liberal-leaning group, which was accused last year of submitting some false voter registration forms in a massive voter-registration drive.”

Even when Bubba knew that Dinkins was toast for NYC Mayor he came to NY and campaigned for and with him.

This is a disgustingly opportunistic thing to do and will no doubt cause a backlash.

This is part of Obama’s plan to shove Andrew Cuomo into the campaign. Don’t forget, Cuomo ran HUD. He’s got ACORN connections.

If Paterson has an ounce of dignity left, he’ll tell Obama to shove off.

In the end, NY will get Rudy as governor.

"They expressed concern about his chances about being reelected and the likelihood his presence in the race made it more likely that Rudy Giuliani would enter the contest," the source said. "The preference is that he not run. That message was conveyed directly."

This is obviously not a leak of a confidential discussion. This is an announcement, from Obama himself.

And, speaking of racism, it is a predictable effort to portray Giuliani as the racist, as they continually did the last time he ran. It's all Giuliani's fault.

Finally, speaking of a blind black man, we might recall Obama's two Special Olympics jokes during the campaign last fall--although the press managed to bury one of them (the joke about waterheads).
