In all my years on this planet I have never seen such ineptness from a sitting governor as I have from David Paterson this past year. He was simply unskilled and unqualified to run New York State, regardless of his intent and desire to succeed, and in the end this truth came to light. His inability to bring folks together within his own party, which happens to control both bodies of state government with the senate having turned Democratic last January, is more evidence that his head was never above water while in office. The state does not need Andrew Cuomo either; we need a Republican Governor to come into Albany to rid the state of a one-party rule that leads only to scandal, corruption and high taxes. The voters of New Jersey voted to oust the Democrats in November, as did Virginia voters. The same is needed in Albany come November. Liberal, in-ept and misguided tax-and-spend politicos who have helped destroy our economy and kill off thousands of jobs because of their blatant spending ways need to be kicked out of office. The people have had enough!
