Not one single media outlet has stated the obvious when reporting on the mayor's LAUSD take over plan and failure of the school system. Why haven't they pointed out the Jose Huizar was president of the school board for 4 years and did absolutely nothing to change or help the situation?

Excellent point. In addition to that, where does Huizar stand with respect to the mayor's position on LAUSD?

Da Mayor has no authority to do what he's announced:

* He doesn't have the Constitutional authority to take over LAUSD.

* He doesn't have the moral authority -- because he opted out of public schools for his own family, sending them exclusively to private schools.

* And, fatally, he's not even attempting to get local authority, preferring instead to rush up to Sacramento and try to call in favors to get what he wants.

Antonio has overreached, and it will cost him. He's in bed with Riordan, and the public money pirates who want to pimp charter schools above all.

Huizar is probably shaking his dum dum head in agreement with whatever villababoso says. I'm wondering if that baboso is a gang leader and not a mayor.

Actually, what does Monica Garcia think? She will soon represent District 2 and she got elected solely because of the mayor's support.

Will she support the mayor's plan to put her into an advisory role?

Fnny you would mention the District 2 race cause there's nothing out there as if its even going on. Does anyone think the Mayor would appoint Riordan as superintendent? When the mayor critizes the school board is he including Jose Huizar and why hasn't Jose said anything about any of this? How can the media ignore the fact that a councilman was part of what the mayor is slamming as a failure?

Where is HUIZAR??? He can't be found to get a comment. I'd like to see how he tries to cover his ass on that issue. It seems that he's blocked it out all together.

Likely voters give their early choices for statewide offices
Jerry Brown has big lead in primary for attorney general

Sacramento -- Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown holds a commanding lead in the Democratic race for state attorney general as do other veteran politicians in their races for statewide office, according to a Field Poll released today.

Brown, who was governor from 1974 to 1982, leads Democratic rival Rocky Delgadillo, Los Angeles city attorney, 59 percent to 18 percent with 23 percent of voters undecided.

Rocky is burnt toast!!!!!!!!

Dear Rocky:

You are only down by 41 points with a little over a month left. So here's the play - run as hard as you can and lose by double double digits - this play will result in the end of your career.

Big loss for Rocky
Big win for Los Angeles

That's the play - I know you can execute it. So go out there and do leave anything on the field.

I'd figure it would take a pot-head to say something like that.

The other obvious position is Riordan's involvement in all of this on top of Huizar's former job as School Board Member

If I'm the teachers unions I'd go right for Riordan's throat. You cut the head of the snake, the rest(AV, Chick-N-shit, Hertzberg, Huizar, Monica Garcia, Meruelo...) dies with it.

What's up with David "Z" man. Seems he's changing his tune.
The day may soon come when City Hall reverts to its more mundane routine, where mayors bicker with the City Council, elicit indignant outbursts from the San Fernando Valley and bring the expectations of the populace crashing down to earth. But in 2006, at least, the sky is the limit for Los Angeles and its rock-star mayor.

That's because the media has been bought-off by the evil Villaraigosa political machine, and they are blind to the wonders of Nick Pacheco.

LMAO! I really tried being poker-faced as I typed that, oh well...

Listen, Villababoso took over this joint more than a year ago, and Weezie rules over your filthy eastern fiefdom. Get over it. Pachueco already has, and he's moving on the game. He already took out Villababoso's right hand-man at the County Fed, he ain't stupid. To bad his supporters are nothing but a bunch of whining cunts who spend their energies on this blog. Plot your takeover, dumbass.

What has Tony accomplished? As a city councilmember and now mayor he has accomplished nothing. All talk no action. So I don't worry about anything he says.

Didn't the Mayor PROMISE that he would eliminate the appearance of impropriety that stems from appointing and hiring Lobbyists to key City positions?
Yes he did!
So why the hell did he hire Cecilia Estolano to head up the CRA.
She is a Real Estate Attorney and a REGISTERED LOBBYIST at the City. Won't she be steering CRA money and projects to her professional buddies and to her fellow attorneys at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher?
Antonio, you're so hypocritical. How could you hire a lobbyist to such a sensitive position. Ask her to step aside now, before she starts fundraising for you.

If you voted for AV, you only have yourself to blame. So before you go blaming Antonio and Laura Chick-n-shit, go take a good long look in the mirror.

That is why in the last election I voted Hahn. He wasn't any better but at least he didn't try to hide his bullshit.

It's the difference between a pimp (Hahn) and a Low life hustler(Villaraigosa). A Pimp will give it to you straight no bullshit. While a Hustler will try to pull the classic Bait and Switch.
