New York Post State Editor Remembers Pataki: ‘Lifestyle Donald Trump Would Envy’

New York Post State Editor Fred Dicker retweets his December 2006 takedown of Governor George Pataki, just in time for his expected entrance into the 2012 presidential race.

And it’s Dicker at his finest:

While his many liberal political allies and plentiful media apologists delighted in portraying the betrayal as clever pragmatism in an increasingly Democratic state, Pataki’s abandonment of his supposed core beliefs wasn’t that at all.

Those who know Pataki best (and I’ve talked with many of them day-in, day-out during his three terms) say that it was actually a calculated effort by a selfish cynic to hold on to power at all costs – in order to use it for personal gain, social advancement and the enjoyment of millions of dollars worth of state-funded aides, servants, security services and a state fleet of aircraft, all providing a lifestyle even Donald Trump would envy.
