Think Again Mr. Mayor !!

The Jewish Voice - - EDITORIAL -

Guess what? Our Mayor, Bill deBla­sio is tin­ker­ing with the idea of run­ning for the pres­i­dency. Has he re­ally thought out this move? Is he get­ting his po­lit­i­cal ad­vice from those silly syco­phants sur­round­ing him whose jobs are to con­stantly in­flate his al­ready huge six foot five ego? No mat­ter how mostly dis­re­garded he is by those in the Big Ap­ple, he is barely known be­yond the Hud­son River. And right within his own state he must over­come the pres­i­den­tial am­bi­tions of party mates Gover­nor Cuomo and Se­na­tor Kirsten Gil­li­brand who both are now poised to run for the top seat in the na­tion and are ac­cu­mu­lat­ing huge war chests to fuel their am­bi­tions. Add to these ob­vi­ous de­ter­rents is the fact that no mayor has ever jumped di­rectly from a City Hall to the White House. Ob­sta­cles ga­lore for "Lit­tle d."

Hil­lary made the mis­take of as­sum­ing the big cities with their huge pop­u­la­tions of blacks, His­pan­ics, blue col­lar union work­ers and Pro­gres­sives would give her the support she needed to win in 2016. She thought she would coast to vic­tory. The fake news MSM was spurt­ing out polls that showed she was a shoe-in. Wrong! Many for­mer blue states such as Michi­gan, Penn­syl­va­nia, Ohio and Wis­con­sin opted to side with and vote for the law and or­der and job cre­ator can­di­date. De Bla­sio is not known for ei­ther. For­get his be­ing the can­di­date sup­ported by po­lice, the law en­force­ment com­mu­nity or their fam­i­lies. He is not their cup of tea.

Ear­lier this year, deBla­sio in­fu­ri­ated the NYPD and the en­tire city by jet­ting off to ad­dress the G-20 Sum­mit in Ham­burg while the body of Po­lice Of­fi­cer Mioso­tis Fa­milia was be­ing pre­pared for burial. At the fu­neral, most of the NYPD and their broth­ers and sis­ters in at­ten­dance from out of town turned their backs on him as he de­liv­ered his worth­less eu­logy. He was ini­tially given that never be­fore done, "Give him our backs" treat­ment back in 2014 at the fu­ner­als of po­lice of­fi­cers Rafael Ramos and Wen­jian Liu. Throw in his il­le­gal hon­ey­moon travel to Castro's Cuba and the an­tag­o­nism that still gen­er­ates among the Florida Cuban com­mu­nity. They are a ma­jor vot­ing bloc in the state that has 29 Elec­toral Col­lege votes.

DeBla­sio may think be­cause of his two over­whelm­ing vic­to­ries in NYC that he is pres­i­den­tial tim­ber. But John Lind­say in 1972 and Rudy Gi­u­liani in 2008 were taught a les­son. They were both fail­ures. He must ig­nore his in­ner cir­cle of "tuchis leck­ers" and take into con­sid­er­a­tion that Bernie San­ders and El­iz­a­beth War­ren are both still bounc­ing around the po­lit­i­cal cir­cuit and pump­ing up the Pro­ges­sives for sure runs for the Oval Of­fice. DeBla­sio may think he's a big guy within the city lim­its but around the coun­try he will be dis­missed as a small fry.
