First, let me recall to memory the outrage Democrats have had over bonuses to CEOs of companies that have accepted federal bailout money. "Unacceptable!" "Something must be done!" "Limit their pay!"
Good ol' Governor Paterson in New York continues to be the biggest mistake since Jimmy Carter. (Okay, maybe not but he is bad.) Here is the opening of the article:
Gov. Paterson has granted stunning pay raises of up to 29 percent to several key aides — even as he slaps furloughs on 100,000 state workers, and his lieutenant governor threatens layoffs.
I wonder if 0bama will step in on this one? I wonder if he say that Gov. Paterson reacted "stupidly"? I wonder if he will insist, that since New York receives federal funds, that these pay raises for some, while their are furloughs for others, are unacceptable?
Or will he pretend not to notice since this is a fellow Democrat pulling this stunt?
