Arkanaut: Joe Lhota shows he's in touch with what the average New Yorker cares about -- his opinion of a politician who's been out of office for 20 years.


He's attempting to ally himself with his prospective constituents, by offering unsolicited comments about the memoirs of a guy that, unlike Lhota, actually got elected. Lhota's an asshole, trying to grab attention for himself at the expense of his betters.

Yeah, the fact that Clinton made funds for a ton more cops available after Giuliani took over is Dinkins' fault.

ScreamingHangover: jedihirsch: Lets see NYC under Dinkins.
Higher crime
more murders
race riots
race riots with the police ordered not to interfere even as someone was killed and someone was was beaten with his skull bashed open feet away from cops who by their orders from the mayor couldn't do anything and the police only finally got involved after Dinkins decided to see what was actually going on and his limmo was attacked by the rioters.
made racial comments about Jews and Latinos
financial mismanagement and huge debt.

Yup the only reason you lost reelection to a guy who built a reputation as being hard on crime when crime was skyrocketing and there were riots was because you were black. Which is why you even lost the black vote during your reelection, because they were racist against you being black too, right

You forgot that while the riots were going on, he didn't feel the need to disturb his vacation, so he didn't return to work for over a week.
And preventing the police from making arrests of "street level" drug dealers.
And then there was taking OTB, which was bringing in a $40 million a year profit for the city and turning it into a $20 million a year loser in 3 years: The guys couldn't even run a legal, tax-free betting operation!

Yet he's still blaming it on racism. Dude: if it was racism, you would have never been elected in the first place.

I love Dinkins: he screwed up so bad,  he was pushed out by the first Republican to win the Mayor's office since 1945. Not only did he brake a 49 year streak, but he ushered in  Republican rule for the past 19 years. For the life of me, I can't understand why the Democrats never kicked him the fark out of their clubhouse.


19 years? Rudy was only 6. Bloomberg was a Democrat until 3 days before he entered the GOP primary. He is considered America's most liberal mayor and switched patry affiliation to independent as soon as he no longer needed a party affiliation, also backstabbed all four republicans on the city council. Trust me, since Rudy there has been no republic rule in the city. Especially look at the city council today, 4 GOP 41 Dems, the peak of "GOP power" during this period was 5 republicans on the city council and 40 democrats, and today there is no republican to a city wide office, only on Borough president a republican and only 1.5 republican DA's (Richard Brown of Queens ran on both the Repub and Dem ticket). SO what GOP power????? This city is owned and run by the democrats and one rich liberal who thinks he's god and make Trump look humble and sane

Front St, Staten Island. Went past the Homeport. Needed repairs badly, especially with the Navy being there and using it a lot.

So Dinkins asked the Navy if they had nukes onboard their ships tied up at the Homeport. Navy told him they were not allowed to say. Street surface got worse.

Rudi's in, street get fixed. Ba-da bing, ba-da boom! Na mean?

Maybe Dinkins should have spent less time visiting cop-shooting gangbangers in the hospital to make sure they were OK, and more time using his resources correctly.


Does "using his resources correctly" involve time machines and securing funding for putting more cops on the street years before that funding was available?

Because that's what worked.
