It was clear to all longtime Villar observers in this video clip, that this adage applies when deconstruction the background of the Mayor formerly known as Tony Villar of City Terrace. "You can take the Tony out of the hood, but you can't get the hood out of Tony". (** especially on his return visits to Metro Barber Shop).
The political facade that Mayor Antonio Villar was chosen as the Chairperson of the Dependentcrat National Convention because of his ethical, objective leadership potential, went up in smoke in the DNC "God and Jerusalem Platform" Debacle.
Mayor Villar will be forever immortalize as the "useful window-dressing" that glossed over the growing anti-Israel and God influences within the Dependentcrat Party.
The "God and Jerusalem Platform Debacle" also showed that old habits still reign within the "inner City Terrace Tony", such as embellishing the truth.
Any future political incarnation of the political Villar Brand, should take into consideration that teleprompters don't lie.
But swaying into objectivity for a bloggin moment, the Villar Brand (in any incarnation) can still rouse a like-minded mass of dependentcrats into an organize group of willing enablers. But as noted in his speech placement among the other assembled dependentcrats, Mayor Villar is seen as not ready for Prime Time status on the national level (** BTW Tony, City Terrace is not Boyle Heights).
As Mayor Villar returns from Charlotte, he may want to ponder taking a political step back and focus on the state of some of his local signature policy initiatives, such as the Summer Night Lights Program. The video above highlights the results of spending 89% of your time as mayor in promoting self and not on your paid duties as the chief administrator of the second-largest city in the United States (** Forward to 9:00 to view some "mosh mayhem").
