Unlike the criticism aimed at Obama, the criticism of Patterson is non racial. Patterson is a walking disaster and an inept political hack. His opponents have zero need to play the race card because he is clueless. Patterson injected race into the mix to link his critics to those criticizing Obama.
That being said Obama should let the folks in NY decide our own fate than act as kingmaker in our local politics. Let the voters choose between Little Lord Fauntleroy ( Andrew Cuomo) and Patterson the Inept. Of course choosing Rudy or any other adult over these two would be sanity.
Has anyone forgot the disasters at HUD run by this empty suit. Has anyone forgotten that King Bubba thought soooo much of his own cabinet member he asked him to step aside in a local race.
Cuomo's only asset is that anyone looks good when compared to Patterson's lack of leadership and poor judgement.
If Patterson had half a brain he would have given Cuomo Hillary's seat. Instead he picked another non entity to fill her shoes. At least this non entity is attempting to represent NY which is more than Hillary ever did.
Obama did one good thing for NY. He got Hillary out of our local politics. Maybe Obama can show some real courage and politely ask Charles Rangel to retire.
