I am making a good salary from home 1500-3000/ Dollers week , which is amazing, under a year ago I was jobless in a horrible economy. I thank God every day I was blessed with these instructions and now it's my duty to pay it forward and share it with Everyone, Here is I started...
I'm from Peekskill. I know George Pataki. I knew him before he was mayor. I bought vegetables from him at his family's farm stand. Pleasant man? Yes.
Great mayor? No. Terrible mayor? No. Great governor? No. Terrible governor? No.
By now, you've probably gotten the idea that what I'm describing is mediocrity, though Pataki is now disappointing by adopting -- albeit half-heartedly -- the language about "small government" and demon, useless Washington so beloved of the rabid Tea Partiers any Republican must win over to win his or her party's primaries.
The fact is that those Tea Partiers (perhaps not deliberately) and the more mainstream Republicans (very deliberately) would replace "big government" (quotation marks) that tries, with varying degrees of success, to help the average citizen, with Big Business (no quotation marks), that never helps anyone but itself (and its shareholders).
Any serious voter might ask why Pataki hasn't addressed the rampant corruption in the state government he ran for twelve years; he certainly didn't do anything about it DURING those three terms, and now he just glosses over it while uttering Tea Party catch-phrases.
When a George Pataki, or any politician, can rhetorically strike a balance between the needs of citizens and business, only THEN will he deserve to be listened to. It seems that that time has not yet come.
