de Blasio Done

Posted by Bill from Maspeth on Tue Jan 18 16:28:14 2022

Despite all the (political) differences on this board, I think the majority of us can agree that deBlasio was THE worst mayor in the history of the City of New York. This includes IMO Beame and Dinkins. I don't remember anybody saying he did anything right. It has been a breath of fresh air not to hear a thing about him for the past 3 weeks and see his face or hear his voice on TV.

Today he announced he won't be pursuing the governor's job. No doubt in my mind he couldn't find supporters to give him campaign money.

Good!

Those who use the term "political differences" (as if the differences are relative) are usually ignorant of how destructive the left is.

Adams is off to a bad start already. He's got a lot of backpedaling to do if he doesn't want to seem worse than Comrade Wilhelm.

My main beef with Adams is he's a vegan.

I could list vegans who post here.

As for Adams give him a chance. Let's see how he does.

Yes, Vegans are part of the Left.

The Left wants to control every aspect of our lives including food.

Good choice of words.

No. That was done with Obama in spite of the evidence of what he was. Plenty of evidence of whst Adams is; if not his love of Farrakhan and his veganism then his current actions.

deBlasio was THE worst mayor in the history of the City of New York

New York has a very long history. I wouldn't say DiBlasio was the worst. For instance, how does he compare to Lindsay?

John Lindsay has the common sense to walk the streets of Harlem in the wake of the Dr. King assassination and soothe the public anger and sadness.
DeBlasio lit up a blunt and put his feet up in 2020 when the streets were overrun.

OK, good point. But didn't Lindsay help set up the city's fiscal crisis and botched the negotiations for the transit strike?

It came to a head under him and little Abe Beame but Iím sure the groundwork was laid out before his time. I think he may have exasperated the situation and Beame had no chance. Iíll tell you what though Iíd take those problems over the lunacy that exists now. Of course Lindsay was a Manhattan centric pretentious ass but Iíd still take that over that SOB deBlasio.

IMO deBlasio is just another pretentious ass who was definitely unqualified. I'll never forget how he got angry when Bloomberg told him how he had an ideal negotiating position with the unions, because all the contracts were up. Hey stupid, you represent the city's interests, not the unions.

I'm not sure I would want those problems over the current "lunacy". The fiscal crisis meant a ton of cutbacks and a ripe environment for far more trouble.

The cutbacks are because of the generosity in the first place. This city has gotten ugly over the last 8 years. And Iíve never felt more tension in the streets in my life than now. Itís really not cool.

Yeah, but the end result was that we had a major downgrade in services, because service costs increased over the years. As far as how ugly it's gotten: I think it depends on the part of the city. Up until the pandemic, I felt the city was doing OK, despite the mayor and the protests, which were largely peaceful to me. The pandemic and the recent increases in crime, esp. race-based ones, has changed my view significantly.

Forgot to mention, that, to me, the violent and damaging protests started when the pandemic was already in full swing.

Doing ok is a downgrade from 10-20 years ago. The streets are filthy and people donít give a damn around here like they used to.

It's so true. It's like a breath of fresh air in nyc knowing that horrible person is now out of office.

In nyc, it will never have a great mayor, as there's too many variables but I don't dislike Adams (yet). I'm still willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. We shall see.
I'm not crazy about the latest comment about "crime being a perception", but truth is, anything has got to be better than deblassio

Most of the downgrade, IMO, is because it's getting so expensive to live in the city. Businesses and people are getting priced out, so it's harder to care if you can't put down roots. Still not as bad as the fiscal crisis though.

Cornbury was a governor.
