Sam Smith - Barack Obama wants a mandatory mandate for health insurance, he wants to tell local public schools how they should run their classes, he says that if a health care bill passes he will "own it" and now he wants to tell New York how to run its election for governor:
NY Times - "President Obama has sent a request to Gov. David A. Paterson that he withdraw from the New York governor’s race, fearing that Mr. Paterson cannot recover from his dismal political standing, according to two senior administration officials and a New York Democratic operative with direct knowledge of the situation. . . The move against a sitting Democratic governor represents an extraordinary intervention into a state political race by the president"
This follows Obama lobbying Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick on how he should handle filling Ted Kennedy's seat, which raises the question:

If a white southern congress member calling a half white president a liar is racist, what is a half white president bossing around two black governors?

Of course, Obama could eliminate the matter by sticking to those tasks outlined for him by the Constitution.
