  •  Ah, but there is no one else at the moment (0+ / 0-)

    I don't like any of the current choices, hate Quinn, so I hope he runs and i will work for him.

    •  I only recently moved back to NYC (0+ / 0-)

      so I'm still not that up on local politics. Why do you hate Quinn? Helping get Bloomberg elected a 3rd time, or other things too? Is she a neolib?

      •  I feel she is too "inside" and "entitled" (0+ / 0-)

        and I fear the kind of daily corruption that being an insider for decades can create

        •  Bloomberg wasn't an insider, neither was Rudy (0+ / 0-)

          How'd that work out? I need something more specifically damning, like policies she's supported or things she's said, people she's aligned with, etc.

          •  I voted for Bloomberg all three times, so that (0+ / 0-)

            worked out just fine!! The only republican I ever voted for

            •  I voted for Green the first time (0+ / 0-)

              Then I moved away and couldn't vote the other 2 times. Wouldn't have even if I could. Never liked the man ever since I heard stories about him at my old job in the company he got his start in. What's he done that's so great, btw? Bike lanes, smoking and fried food? Stop and frisk? Record high real estate prices that only the rich can now afford? NYC as corporate Disneyland?

              •  Corporate Disneyland began under Giuliani (0+ / 0-)

                and Times Square is a tourist haven now, they love it, and Time Square is about tourist dollars for the Theatre so if they love it, why would I want to go back to when it was porn parlours?

                His style is to stay low, no grandstanding like Giuliani, no racial incidents inflamed like Giuliani.... and Green is an a*hole, we know him and I did not vote for him

                •  No racial incidents?!? (0+ / 0-)

                  What rock have you been living under (or affluent yuppie paradise)? There's been unjustified shootings of minorities by cops for years under Bloomberg, and S&F. Are you sure you're even a Democrat?

                  •  Bloomberg does not escalate or hold press (0+ / 0-)

                    conferences that inflame situations, is what I meant.

                    and city government is not so much about party politics anyway

                    I would vote for Bloomberg again.
                    The only sort of republican I could ever vote for

                    •  No, he imposes his brand of authoritarianism (0+ / 0-)

                      more stealthily, via the NYPD. Thank god he put a stop to all that rape and uncleanliness in Zuccotti Park and saved us from young black men!
