Antonio Villaraigosa Hanging Around Tampa
Antonio Villaraigosa-LA's empty suit mayor
The Democratic mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa has left his decaying and bankrupt city to get in some face time in Tampa and heckle the Republicans. This week, he made a stupid statement about the Republicans having to do more than trot out brown faces to speak in order to win Hispanic voters.
That is a fascinating comment from someone who is nothing more than a brown face-in other words, playboy Villaraigosa is an empty suit. Yet he will be the brown face next week in Charlotte since he has been designated the chair of the DNC convention. That means he will bang the gavel to open the convention and bang the gavel to close it. They figure that's something he can handle without screwing up.
The point that must be made here is that while the Democrats (and Tony himself) think he is a rising star in Democrat national politics, he has been a joke of a mayor in LA. The most notable thing he has done is get divorced because he got caught in a messy relationship with a news reporter assigned to cover him. With one year left in his term, he will leave behind an illegal alien sanctuary city ridden with gang violence, bad streets, and a deficit that will leave his successor no choice but to declare bankruptcy as Tony prances off to run for governor or some national office, none of which he is qualified for (not that any of the current incumbents are).
God. If they only knew in Washington what everybody knows in LA. This guy is a clown.
