Here’s Councilman Charles Barron defending David Paterson from the White House’s efforts to get him out of next year’s governor’s race.
“First of all, I don’t think Barack Obama is that stupid,” Barron said. “He knows that is not something you say at this point, or at all.”
Barron also said, “Mind your business, Barack.”
It’s hard not to compare this resolute defense of Paterson to the tepid one he got from Representative Greg Meeks, who reportedly delivered the message to Paterson on the White House’s behalf, last night. During an appearance on NY1, host Dominic Carter asked if Paterson could win next year. Meeks said it depended on who was running.
