Lhota is the Better Choice
De Blasio is not a beauty boy. But he is a lot cooler looking than Joe Lhota. De Blasio is not as smart but he keeps playing that old freebie progressive tune. Like McCartney he is a retread of himself.
De Blasio is not a rock star like Obama but he is Keith Richards compared to Llota.
Once again Democrats choose appearance, albeit mediocre appearance, over pragmatism, eclectic thinking and intelligence. Democrats prefer image to low key decision making. They are star struck.
Just look at Obama who ran as a real rock star and turned into chips of indecisiveness leading from behind. Seventeen trillion dollars in debt later Obama doesn’t look or sound so good.
In fact, Obama makes Bush look good. Bush garbled his words but he didn’t hurt our finances or world image as much as Obama.
De Blasio’s allegiances are to failed countries like Nicaragua and Cuba. Like the people down there have such splendid standards of living. Is that what he wants for us? Is he Dinkins come back from abysmal failure to wield magic squeegees across our windshields? Is he genuflecting with Obama before some covert socialism in the sky.
Hasn’t Obama punished our economy enough? Do we have to vote for de Blasio, a large clone of Obama who wants to drive the rich from the city with excessive taxes while concentrating on improving kindergarten? Since when did kindergarten become a priority in city planning?
In 1969 I took the first, experimental city planning course at Hunter College. I don’t remember Professor Davidoff discussing the importance of kindergarten.
Reminds me of Obama saying he wanted to improve the country’s finances while concentrating on his bankrupting, inefficient health care.
De Blasio is cut from the same cloth. He picks the wrong target and shoots himself in the foot.
