Just Do It.

June 2, 2010

Governor Paterson doesn’t appear in public that much anymore, but he still does a lot of radio interviews. Some people believe he’s actually auditioning for a job as the host of nationally-syndicated radio program. This would actually be a good fit for Paterson. He’s smart. He’s glib. He’s even charming if you don’t mind a occasional inconsistency of thought.  

Alas, he’s still the governor, and still trying to play the part. As per usual, he’s sounding an alarm. Today he issued a warning that soon, very soon, he might be forced, yes forced, to take action.

If state lawmakers don’t start cutting billions of dollars in spending, he will include the needed cuts in the emergency spending bills he sends to the Legislature each week. Lawmakers must pass these measures or risk shutting down the government.

Paterson says that after waiting two months for a budget resolution, he can wait no longer. After this Friday, he’s going to act. Friday, the day after tomorrow, that’s the day. No more waiting around. Time to act. To do something. There’ll be news release about it, and then he’ll do a radio interview to announce that he’s going to act.

    Judge me by what I say about what I am thinking really hard about trying to do because saying is actually an action too, and it’s important to set an example for our children that they can aim high and strive for difficult goals, no goal is too difficult to be striven for, but judge me not by what I do because well, anyone can get something done if they are willing to do just any old thing, but it’s the setting of high goals and talking about them and whining about how others won’t let you do them that shows real leadership.
