Mayor Villaraigosa not to run for Governor, or is Villar in ??

Consider this today from the San Fransisco Chronicles political scribes Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross in today's Chronicle, or is it "Wrongicles" ??

No go Antonio: Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa isn't going to run for governor - at least not in 2010.

Our sources in L.A. say Villaraigosa has come to the conclusion that the time is just not right for him to make a state run - given that he hasn't even been sworn in yet to a second term, and that he's facing bloody political fights at home.

With Villaraigosa out, it's going to be an all-out brawl between San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and California Attorney General Jerry Brown for the Democratic nomination.

Is Villaraigosa in or out?
People close to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa this morning dismissed a report in the San Francisco Chronicle that he had decided not to run for governor in 2010.
Villaraigosa insiders said the mayor has still not made a decision.
Chronicle political columnists Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross today reported that their sources had told them Villaraigosa had decided not to run, in part because he was facing “bloody political fights” at home.

.....and those political fights will commence soon.

Your thoughts......

Now that those RIDICULOUSLY LONG POSTS HAVE PASSED, there is a huge laugh in Zooma's pathetic post today about how it's 4am, he is homeless, BUT THE FUCKER IS MANAGING TO BLOG?


It's a ruse, I tell you. I can't prove it, but he's cryin poverty, but has internet access?

Bulletin Zooma, if the only thing on your mind at 4am on the street if that is where u really are, is bloggin then you need to think about your life and whether bloggin should be the priority.

All ur funny wails about being helpless is b.s. because you are a GREAT ORATOR, and people must be offering you at least menial jobs if not better. Being homeless in your capable mind is a CHOICE, bro.

You are capable, and you have a fertile mind. You must kno hundreds of people and you are still homeless?

I can't still figure out where you are getting and how u are payin for the internet access at that time, but it doesn't make sense to me, nor does your endless comments about how people should not talk with you but instead just pass you by.

This sounds exactly like what u said the day after the election and for the three years prior. it doesn't make sense.

if anyone doesn't know your post i'm talkin about here it is so stay warm bro.

You probably think I am glad to see you when we bump into each other at city hall and I take some time to speak with you. How about this, if you are reading this, and we have already met or know each other already, please just let me pass un-interrupted. No need to chit-chat, the only thing I am thinking of is how to get off the street and no one I have ever spoken to cares to assist me in that. So please forgive me if I can't stop to listen to whatever it is you want me to know about and do something about. DO IT YOURSELF, you are the one sleeping inside in a bed.

I think Mayor Villaraigosa will never be elected as governor of this Golden State, period.

Here is how Doug McIntyre summed up Villaraigosa leadership.

Villaraigosa's leadership is about denial

By Doug McIntyre

Politically, the mayor has a giant problem. He wants to be governor but what record does he run on? Imagine this commercial: "Hi, I'm Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles. I was the front man for Measure B which lost. I'm a big supporter of Measures 1A through 1F, which are going down in flames. I barely got 55 percent of the vote against amateur politicians with no money, and my city has a billion-dollar budget deficit and leads the nation in poor, homelessness and the uninsured. Vote for me so I can do for California what I've done for Los Angles."

I remember a fund raiser I went to when Antonio ran for Mayor. He got a question about his promise to fill out his term as Councilman for District 14. Very earnestly he told all in the room: I was committed to that. I was. But people from all over the City have come to me and asked me to run again because of the concerns of "pay-to-play" corruption at City Hall. So, I it looks like a should run for Mayor to end this very disturbing corruption under the helm of James Hahn."

How ironic that Antonio claimed to be running out of concern for corruption. We now know that was a big lie. Political operatives chattered up the pay to play allegations against Hahn and Villaragosa grabbed the Mayor's mansion.

Today, it appears that not only was that another broken Villaraigosa promise, but pay to play has corrupted the investment of millions in the City pension funds.

Villaraigosa = FAILURE.

Antonio would be the biggest fool in the country if he decided to run for Gov. It would show his arrogance, his stupidity, and his total lack of responsibility and accountability for the mess he's made in LA. Word from insiders are saying Antonio is going to spend hundreds of thousands of your tax dollars on his big gala swearing in ceremony. There should be RECALL posters all over that event with a huge photograph of the cover of LA Magazine that says FAILURE so the media can include in their stories.

Just keep in mind the SF Chronicle source sounds like it was Ron Kaye. That is fine. He may be correct. But doesn't appear that the SF source is independent of what we have already been hearing here locally.

Since someone likes to post content from my blog in this comment section, let me help make you even happier. So now, instead of it just being posted on my blog, it can also be posted on Mayor Sam's to INCREASE the impressions...LOL! (You really KEEP things fun for me.)

# Anyone interested in reading the Century City/Westfield settlement with Westwood Homeowners Association? If so, maybe I can let you read.

# MORE PENSION B.S. Regarding Newhall Ranch: The plan which could be approved Monday by a bankruptcy judge is going to sting the CalPERS fund.

# Clintons made Villaraigosa invest PENSION MONEY in shady Henry Cisneros housing projects. Pension fund lost $7 BIL last year. This is how.

# In '95 Villar appoint Wetherly attorney W. Jackson to CRA as Chair. Wetherly controls pension board. Pension board invests in CRA projects.

# Simon was a client of Wetherly's at the same time they were behind Davis for Gov. Wetherly's Julio Ramirez was in charge of the Simon fund.

# When Gov Gray Davis wanted challenger Bill Simon silent on water crisis during '02 election, Wetherly started $100 mil fund for Simon!

# When Vivendi needed a CRITICAL meeting with Gov Gray Davis, Wetherly Capital was able to make that happen. Just needed 42,000 acres, first!

# The Clintons Henry Cisneros Andrew Cuomo Ron Burkle Darius Anderson Dan Weinstein Julio Ramirez William H. Jackson Antonio Villaraiogsa CRA.

# I'm told Clinton is top U.S. "bag man" for De Beers with Ron Burkle under him. Weinstein/Wetherly, Anderson/Yucaipa also grease elections.

# ROOT OF CORRUPTION: De Beers controls elections by financing a few U.S. "bag men" who use money to back candidates in elections like yours!

# If you wonder why Zuma Dogg blames the DWP water crisis and rate hike on Gray Davis, Vivendi and Wetherly Capital, DO MORE RESEARCH LIKE ZD!

# REMEMBER: June ist DWP "mandatory conservation" pricing goes into effect because Gray Davis, Vivendi and Wetherly Capital behave criminally.

# Speaking of Pay-To-Play: Did you read my post about City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo? Is it possible 100% of city attorney contracts are PTP?

# STATE & FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS: If you would like to hear about Wetherly Capital "Pay-To-Play" with Vivendi & then Gov Gray Davis, call ZD.

# Zuma Dogg, you are great, man. Keep it going. I sense the momentum. You've got some balls and it's fun to watch.

# Obama needs to print up more money so Richard Alarcon and Los Angeles City Council can funnel it into risky crony projects that go bankrupt.

# ZUMA DOGG for California ATTORNEY GENERAL: I will investigate and prosecute pension corruption & City Attrny Rocky Delgadillo's Pay-To-Play.

# Anyone know about Lennar (Darius Anderson) and Newhall Ranch debacle, in which CalPERS lost A BILLION DOLLARS? Should Darius be in prison?

# LAUSD says summer school is canceled! Among problems, kids will graduate later/less competitive internationally. System must admit failure.

Villagrossa is definitely going to run for Guv. His new 'girlfriend', Lu Parker (KTLA) is no accident...he needs her to promote him; and secondly, he was on Geraldo Scumbag''s show Sat. nite. Geraldo said the word is..."He will be the next Gov."!

Expect to see regular appearances on Geraldo Scummo...and Channel 5!!!! It's a Mexican thing! Viva LaRaza, Geraldo and Villagrossa!

This guy is a low-down sleazebag who will stoop to anything to get the job done!

The KTLA reporter should have her head examined...he's just using her! She ought to be so embarrassed!

People fail to understand one crucial aspect of the Governors race.

We here in Los Angeles have a reason to despise Mayor Villaraigosa -- because he sucks.

However, people in other cities have no grudge against him because he hasn't screwed up THEIR cities.... (yet)

Villaraigosa is still a danger to be Governor.

There is a lot of time between now and Nov. 2010.
