Super Tuesday Bloggy Bits

While the city is in the midst of a deep fiscal emergency Wednesday the Mayor will be off traveling the Bay Area campaigning for Hillary Clinton, joined by fellow Mayors Gavin Newsom of San Francisco and Ron Dellums of Oakland. Take all the time you need Antonio.

In the meantime, another City Council member has joined the Obama parade. Councilman Bill Rosendahl - who originally supported also ran Dennis Kucinich - has switched his allegiance to the Illinois Senator. "My heart and my soul summoned me to answer the inspiring, hopeful and
positive call for Barack Obama,'' Rosendahl said in a statement.

If you agree that its important to do what you can to deny Hillary Clinton a victory in California on Tuesday, you can join Council President Eric Garcetti for a "Bike Ride for Obama" this Saturday.

We may have started a trend. LAist is having its first event ever, its own election night party. But not at a working class Valley watering hole, but a trendy downtown nightspot. Perhaps Matt Dowd could join them and all of the other Pro-Prop S hoi polloi there.

How much is it costing the City of Los Angeles, to have street maintenance, police support, parking enforcement and all other supportive requirements for the MAYOR to pander for his job on the democratic cabinet?

Can anyone ask?..or guess?

How much of it is creating this "fiscal emergency" we are now being asked us to support Prop S?

Well if Hillary wins and takes Antonio to a cabinet post in Washington isn't that a good thing for LA? If she loses, he's still here.

Yup anything to get rid of the gang banger Mayor of LA. Yeah for Rosendahl. Latinos for Obama all the way. Who wants a racist in the White House like Billary? boy, have they shown the nation their true characters. She looks like a dyke needing to come out of the closet and he still looks desperate to get laid. sorry couple they make but power is all they want so they will play the game. Sad.

hell yeah, said Matt Dowd when we mentioned LAist.
trendy downtown watering hole sounds much more in his league.
We would have thought you'd want Matt to attend the Mayor Sam party so you could make fun and laugh at him when Prop bS fails.
(don't forget to mention that Matt Dowd coined that term as a joke. if you use it, credit him)

anyway, Matt says he'll let the comments sway whether he attends either, and just because he's against you on this, doesn't mean he's not still on side against condo conversions, lack of infrastructure, traffic, LAUSD construction budgets etc etc.

all we know is this cholo mayor got hisself elected, had an affair, got his police chief reappointed, got rid of Jeffs, organised his own school board, is campaigning for a highly likely future president and cabinet position, so Matt Dowd just kind of thinks Prop S is an easy one to pull off for a lowlife cholo like this one.

11:52, Billary doesn't only look like one, she is one! No wonder Billy messed around outside his marriage when he was president... the man must have been frustrated as hell for 8 years while his wife carried on with a bunch of other women! Wouldn't you be frustrated? I sure as hell would!
