    •  So you won't answer the question? (0+ / 0-)

      Okay. You win.

      But its more like Prez. BHO, Arne Duncan, elected Mayors of Blue Cities Emanuel and Nutter among many, many other Dems. And oh yeah, inner city parents looking for solutions.

      •  Seriously? (4+ / 0-)

        You're siding with fucking Nutter and Rahm?  The same motherfuckers who are trying to decimate their respective school systems and destroy the public school systems in their cities so they can privatize them instead?  

        I wouldn't be touting shit like that?  They may have D's after their names but they're no Democrats.  They're fucking corporate whores just like this piece of shit Cuomo.

        •  How were they elected? In Nutter's case, (0+ / 0-)

          re-elected? And what about the Prez? I am siding with them for trying something different. Both school systems were performing poorly before both Mayors took office.

          Daley was Mayor for over 20 years and you are blaming Rahm? Give these guys space to operate or elect local pols who will raise the property taxes necessary to double or triple school funding. But remember, LA, Chicago, NYC, Philly and Cleveland are all Blue cities. If we don't like it, it can be changed.

          •  heh. It's way early, of course, but here's to your (0+ / 0-)

            Mayor 1%:

            Paying relatively little attention to neighborhoods in need in a city that is now an international service and financial hub, Emanuel has largely been considered to be invincible for reelection due to his alleged $6 million political war chest -- and his unstinting support from the business community.
            ---
            Preckwinkle is a former school teacher who believes government serves the interests of the many, not the privileged few.  Emanuel  -- a former political fundraiser, congressman, and White House chief of staff who earned about $17 million for less than two years as a "rainmaker" for an investment firm after he left the Clinton White House -- believes that government is run by an elite that includes the corporate community -- but not community groups -- as full partners.

            If Preckwinkle takes on Emanuel's oligarchical rule, the outcome will be determined by whether or not Emanuel's millions in campaign funds can beat back a populist uprising in the city that became most visible with the revolt of the Chicago Teachers Union.

            Hmm, populist former-teacher County Board president vs Big $$$ neoliberal CorpraCrat.  Super early poll puts her ahead 40% - 32%.  heh

            The struggle for the soul of the party of FDR continues...

            D'oh!

                Are you on the correct political blog?

                  there were allowed to teach. In a public school systems having to cater to so many situations, that has never been done. I actually think charters will go away, my point was that Dems are pushing this as much the GOP. You are the one who shifted the conversation.

                  What poll are talking about?

          Even in blue cities that we have dominated for decades, it's all the Koch Bros and Corp. Dems fault, dating back to the 1960's. Got it.
