Antonio vs. Roy

The San Jose Mercury News reports that Villaraigosa and Romer were making the rounds in Sacramento today, debating the merits of a non-existent bill to transfer power over education from the latter to the former.

Romer asserted that the drop out rate is 25%, not 50%, and is improving. Meanwhile, Villaraigosa tried to work out a deal with the teachers' union. And the governor sent the Legislature a "YOU HAVE BEEN PRE-APPROVED" message, without bothering to wait to see what the yet-to-be drafted bill actually says. Why? To show voters that he is pro-education, and can work with the Legislature.

Predictions? Will the teachers' union trade nominal control for class-size limits? Will the mayor trade control for "reforms" that will allow him to claim he improved the system? Show us all how politically savvy you are; predict the future of the LAUSD.

P.S. Does anyone actually believe Villaraigosa's endorsement would make any difference whatsoever in the outcome of the coming gubernatorial election? My theory: Villaraigosa knows Angelides can't win, and, by refraining from endorsing him, hopes to give the illusion of having affected the outcome.

Mayor Villaraigosa spotted at the corner Walgreens purchasing a dozen Virgin of Guadalupe candles.

Candles are rumored to have been lit at the Mayor's official residence.

It is reported that the Mayor has begun to ask the Virgin for a victory by Schwarzenegger in order for him to become the next Governor.

No wonder he refuses to endorse the California Democratic nominee for Governor. It is not in Antonio's best interest. You get what you vote for.

The Mayor will endorse Angelides, eventually. But he will do no real work for Angelides, who will go down in flames.

The Mayor's tactic will undoubtedly piss off the unions, but in case you've been hiding under a rock, the Mayor has been slowly moving from them for the past year. As the Terminator completes enters his second term, the Mayor will solidify his ties with business interests, while harnessing his remaining ties with labor.

By the time the 2010 campaign rolls in, the Mayor will be the leading Democrat in the state, and the Governorship will be his to lose.

No, it's in the bag. The 2010 California Governership will be Mayor Villaraigosa's to lose. Mark my word.

I will be there to help Antonio win. I will vote for him and hopefully by then I will be so rich I can do an independent expenditure.

Que viva Villaraigosa.

Fighting to control 7 billion dollars is more like it. Show us you can manage a city, then come back and present us your plan to improve education. Putting you in control, Mr. Mayor, is not a plan for improvement.

Very awkward predicament Antonio has put himself in. He wants to take over LAUSD but doesn't have a plan. Going over the heads of the voters has backfired on him. Don't see AV being governor in 2010. He has way to much baggage and you watch when the shit starts to thit the fan. More importantly can someone say what he's actually done in one year except for the trash hike fee.

He's been managing the city for almost a year now. Show me how he's fucked up so much that he shouldn't be mayor.

He will be our next Democratic governor.
