As long as gas is over $3.00 per gallon, we have a failure as a Governor and a failure as President. The cost of EVERYTHING revolves around the price of fuel. Your standard of living revolves around the price of fuel. The elected leaders need to start focusing on fixing whatever would make life easier for the common American and not just easier for the priviledged percentage. Get the price of fuel to $2.50 or below again and everything else will be cheaper as well. But we will have high-speed rail. That seems to be the priority--everything else must be fine in the U.S.

Slap in the face to those who voted for him and a convenient way to avoid a tough fight for reelection. I highly doubt the Cuomo administration sought him out for a position. I think he couldn't wait to get out of office--it was too hard for him. Word is, he was beating on doors in Albany for months. Cuomo is going to reward failure at taxpayer expense. Change comes to Albany?

"Friday’s scheduled visit to Schenectady by President Barack Obama can’t come soon enough for the local business community and area politicians, who view this trip as a chance to generate real excitement about the region’s economy."

Wishful thinking. How will this visit do that folks? He is simply flying in, driving out Rt 7, going only to GE, speaking for a bit, then making tracks as fast as he can, the same way he came in. This will do nothing for Schenectady or the region. Has anyone noticed any boom to the economoy since his visit to HVCC? Come on--I know there's not much to talk about in the Capital Region, but let's not create stories where there are none.
