Bill De Blasio?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Yonnie3 (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Watching on Cnn.. Realize he is not very popular in NYC..But man???
He's sounding great.. Talking about NAFTA, Trump's Immigration policies and the unfair labor practices by corporate America.
He certainly has huge problems with N.Y. Voters which has severely tainted his reputation/history of being Mayor of NYC..However....He sure sounds great in the interview I'm watching....
Not Supporting him at all... Just saying..

1. Narrow focus to listen to our Democrats just thru the primary lens.

I am enjoying hearing our Democratic candidates getting a national stage to be heard at all. So many smart, focused Democrats.

Good to hear he is doing well. Thanks.

2. There are reasons

he's not popular in NYC besides just being the mayor of a big city.

5. Well for starters

he has alienated the NYPD something fierce. There was his going after the horse drawn carriage rides around and through Central Park, for another.

3. Please please please...

... there is a REASON why New Yorkers don't like the mayor. Just as there is a reason that we don't like Trump. I am in no way comparing them but we KNOW them.


Listen to us. We know what we are talking about.

7. Yea.. I'll Listen to ya..

But the "There is a Reason"....doesn't cut it.. How about some specifics..
for an ex NYer living in L.A. Coverage of this subject is hardly covered out here.

12. From the time he was elected...

... he was more interested in being a national progressive leader than his duties as mayor. Many of his wounds have been self inflicted.

He has gotten into these stupid feuds with the governor.


His administration seems always to do the bidding of real estate developers.


Also google NYCHA and lead paint. NYCHA under his admiration challenged lead paint findings and then argued in court that residents assumed the risk by living there. NYCHA is now being overseen by a federal monitor.


He managed to unite both the police union and public housing residents against him. That takes special skills.

13. I do not see anything wrong

with your question but you sure have not gotten anything about him except he is not a friend of the NYPD, no reason given, and that he tried to stop carriage rides?

I find this interesting. Rarely can you ask a question like this one and not get more than you ever wanted to know. What is up with this?
