    Most of them sound like they could have been written by the RNC or the Lhota campaign. "Lindsay.. bla bla bla. Dinkins bla-bla bla -- graffiti, bla-bla-bla..."  Some commenters did try to point out that the decrease in crime did begin within Dinkins (during his final year as mayor).  Yes, it was a modest decrease, especially compared to the decrease the Guiliani years saw, but it was still the start of what was a consistent decrease.

    They blithely downplay Dinkins's role in crime reduction, forget to mention that subway cars free of grafitti came out in 1990, not 1994, dismiss the fact that Lindsay was a Republican for most of his mayoralty, and ignore that their hero Ray Kelly got his start under Dinkins.

    I'm especially amused by those which began with the writer protesting that they were a "liberal democrat, BUT...." or they "voted for Obama twice, BUT..."  Bullshit! Admit it, you're no liberals!  You voted for W., McCain, and Romney!  It's so common for Repubs to claim to be liberal Democrats, and then proceed to to voice all the GOP talking points that it isn't even funny anymore.
