    Black Voters Waver on Support for Paterson

    In a sign of just how far Mr. Patersonís fortunes have fallen, the governor now faces growing doubts from a group that has been among his most loyal: black elected officials, clergy members and voters.

    It is a remarkable turnaround for a man whose ascension to the governorís office just over a year ago set off a swell of pride and joy in black communities. Mr. Paterson became New Yorkís first black governor...

    Is this the future for Obama?
    They are similar types, with the exception Paterson is the unelected Governor.

    I don't expect brothers and sisters to abandon "The One we have been waiting for", but the remainder of the country could represent a similar response as Paterson is facing.

    Tea parties representing only the beginning.

    I guess if you spread the same bs enough then at some point it will stick... at least in the imagination of the anti-obama crowd....must be fun to be associated with racists and neo nazies

    Patterson's re-election highly depends on how he handles our state's budget crisis. So far its still in the middle, when he introduced those new "fat" taxes it pissed alot of people off. Right now those taxes are still in the air but he seemed to redeemed himself with the announcement of cutting alot of civil service jobs.

    Quite similar, except for the fact that Paterson is a goddamn ****head who couldn't lead his dick out of his drawers, is too dumb to pass the bar, and who has never done anything particularly noteworthy in his life except what's been handed to him by others.

    So sort of not similar at all.

    Can you explain the meaning of this post?
    The racists and neo-nazi's is the interesting part.

    Well when you make comments like "I don't expect brothers and sisters to abandon "The One we have been waiting for" it can be seen as racist.

    Racist? Surely you jest?
    I've followed your posts, and I'm pretty surprised you have thrown this claim out... even with the qualifier "it can be seen."

    He stated the words "The One we have been waiting for", and the brothers and sisters vote 90% for the D Party.

    It might be considered a suspect claim except for the fact "The Community" have voted en masse for Democrats for decades... despite their quadrennial complaints they have been on the receiving end of a short stick.

    So I believe the claim of not expecting brothers and sisters to abandon The One (avec Les Teleprompteur)
    is a fair and accurate reading.

    Anyone interpreting it as racist is making a pretty huge leap, I'd say an emotional jerking of the knee would be necessary to span the gap.

    It can be seen as such and that is the bottom line. You asked the question and I told you why.

    This does not mean I necessarily see it any particular way, but you asked.

    You're absolutely right, maybe brothers and sisters should start acting like ordinary citizens and the stereotype will go away. But as long as they got their pants hanging off their asses, and every other word is MF, nigga and bitch, then they won't be respected as living by the commonly held decency of society. Obama and Cosby have both made statements about the pants, and it's clear what they mean.

    This has literally nothing to do with anything I said.
