New Yorkers Love The Steamroller


Steamroller

Originally uploaded by Phil At Sun.

According to a Quinnipiac College poll, New Yorkers approve of Gov. Spitzer’s steamroller approach to relations with the state legislature, in fact they approve by a 2 to 1 margin.

While the press may debate whether Spitzer’s approach is“brilliant or just nuts” I believe that this is just the right tack for Spitzer to take. The governor gave them a chance to work together on reform, and on its very first challenge, selection of a new comptroller, the legislature has proven itself unwilling to shed itself of its dysfunction.

Spitzer cannot be seen as a partner with these bozos if there is any chance for him to bring real change to Albany. Spitzer must be confrontational and bring the battle to a town used to “get along, go along” for far too long.
