    I'm a native New Jerseyan...although I was already in NC when that dirtbag took office, I've hated His Royal Phoniness since day 1.

    His self-serving crony connections (Kerik, anyone?), his waste of law enforcement resources on harassment (remember "bicycles are a serious quality of life issue" ?), his total lack of integrity...the only thing worse he could have done to his city that day would have been to pilot the actual airplanes.

    That guy is a walking disaster, a liar of monumental proportions, and a dismal failure as a leader. His "larger than life" myth must be completely, and quickly, crushed.

    •  Bikes WERE a quality of life issue (0+ / 0-)

      when it came to bike delivery people, which anyone who's lived in NYC knows are a nuisance at best since they tended to ride the wrong way on NYC's one-way streets (which most are) or on sidewalks (which is illegal and incredibly dangerous).

      I happened to witness a well-publicized incident in which a bike messenger crashed into an older man on the sidewalk, who had a heart attack and died shortly after. Of course, despite a just as well-publicized campaign to stop bike delivery people from doing this, this more or less continued unabated. So much for protecting the public's true interests.

      Bike messengers and riders who stay on the road and observe traffic laws, I had no problem with. Not sure if Rudy had a problem with those as well, but if he did, well, that's classic budybody authoritarian Rudy minding everybody's business.
