Malcolm Smith's Leadership Abilities Are Questionable

Working for Senator Malcolm Smith can be hazardous.

Malcolm Smith has not had a banner week. His leadership battle continues after a deal he botched and he is struggling with the press as well.

He abruptly departed a press conference earlier in the week after announcing committee chairs, pointing to his watch and not taking questions on his way out the door.

He has had two different incidents with the press, the other when he made a remark at a golf tournament to lobbyist about getting their money in early like an IPO.

Right after that remark he canned the press director and this week he showed another member of his press team the door.

Maybe someday it will click in someone's mind, that Smith's leadership abilities are deficient.

Its time for Skelos to step aside and let the guy from Broome County lead the senate republicans. He probably could get a Dem to join him.
