Villaraigosa Starts Sabotaging Angelides

Mayor Villaraigosa has apparently kicked off his 2010 gubernatorial campaign by declining to state whether he backs Angelides for governor in 2006. Angelides repaid the favor by refusing to state whether he backs Villaraigosa's LAUSD takeover plan. You can read all about it in today's L.A. Times.

Meanwhile, do me a favor and predict: a) who our next governor will be; b) how this will impact our mayor's political future.

Oh, by the way, Angelides has "hired a campaign media consultant, Bill Carrick, who produced television ads against Villaraigosa for former Los Angeles Mayor James K. Hahn in 2001 and 2005." Perhaps someone is planning ahead?

Governator wins, with his best friend and cheerleader by his side. Antonio comes across looking like the #!@#$% that is really is, small-minded, arrogant, self-serving, worthy of trust by no one...

I still can't get over the fact that the Dems turn out to be as dumb as the Republicans. It used to be solely the Republicans who voted in their party fervor for a true believer only to be repeatedly crushed at the polls in the general election. Come on, if they had put a warm moderate body up against Boxer - the most liberal US Senator, they probably could have won. Instead they ran an extreme right wing idealogue who was too scary for words. Westly might have beaten Arnie, but Angelides is DOA.

Dems were FOOLS to pick Angelides.

Westley wasn't bought & paid for by CTA and actually would have had a chance.

Angelides is toast.

"I think right now he's probably focused on his campaign, just like I'm focused on mine," the mayor said.

We Latrinos must resist fighting amongst ourselves. If we are to succeed the way we envision our efforts must be pooled and directed towards our real enemies. There will be enough success for ALL of us if we stick together.

We as Latinos must stand together and gulp as we re-elect Arnold. He is not so bad, he is a fellow Catholic who takes his faith seriously and is an immigrant like many of us.

By re-electing Arnold, he will work with Antonio and will give Antonio the governorship in 2010. If the Greek Jew Angelides wins, we delay Antonio's dream until 2014 when the gabacho Democrat jewess brujas Feinstein and Boxer will wish to elect a white woman to the office, probably that gabacha bitch Nancy Pelosi.

Arnold is one who will stick by the Mexicans but Angelides will not under the Jewish influence. Arnold is not under that influence.

Join Antonio in supporting Arnoldo.

The former poster is simply meshugenah, and somehow I doubt is even Latino. During the campaign, types like that who probably fervently believe Hector Carreon (I won't even name the publication, because it's basically two guys and a couch whose readership is probably greater among conservatives who use as proof of strange theories of reconquest then its actual intended audience) anti-semitic drek, called our Mayor a tool. It's one or the other guys! I personally think the people that think Jews run the state should have a conference with those people that think Latinos are in a concerted plot to retake the Southwest. I wouldn't be suprise if their is some overlay between the two groups, and I have a feeling that that meshugenah hate conference would be productive in producing even more stupid racist theories.

Gabacho, Antonio is not a tool of the jews but Angelides is. Antonio has learned how to skillfully pimp his former jew masters. We must band together with other catholics even white boys like Arnoldo to stand up to jews like yarovslasky, boxer, clinton, etc. Antonio knows this, why he will endorse Arnold.

Its ironic Mexicans are the first to cry bigotry by gringos, have so many in their own community who are such irrational bigots to Jews, Blacks, Asians....

By contrast other latinos such as Central and South Americans have a much more tolerant attitude.

Hell will freeze over long before a black or Jewish Mexican ever plays on a Mexican World Cup team.

There might not be any black or Jewish players, but I can assure your that there are many with black or Jewish blood. Octavio Paz called Mexicans 'La Raza Cosmica" - because of all the nationalities, races, ethnic groups that make up what a Mexican is. Mexico is the true melting pot, not the U.S. where racist attitudes have kept the races segregated. There are less than 1% Blacks in Mexico, yet nearly 1 million escaped slaves found their way here from the U.S. south. Jews fleeing the inquisition ended up in Mexico, but their numbers are also small. You know why? Intermarriage. Mexicans have indigenous, black, jewish and european blood in them. I for one, proud Mexican that I am, can trace my descendants back to a saphardic rabbi in Galicia from 1436. Ever notice those extremely dark mexicans, or those mexicans with very curly hair or even those blond haired blue eyed mexicans. In fact, this aptly describes the Mexican national team, along with those with strong indigenous features. Take a look next time. Intermarriage is the most profound proof of tolerance. The U.S. is nowhere near such tolerance. Take a look at a Mexican - especially one with well defined Asian features - in 10,000 - 20,000 years - this what what the world is going to look like - one cosmic race.

How stupid does Taco Villa think we are?????

Who can forget the times when Taco Villa and Schwarzenegger were on the same stage together, and Taco Villa would actually position himself as far away from Schwarzenegger as the cameras would allow.....and stand there with the vilest sneer on his face and the most blatant hostility written across his ugly face. It was hilarious to watch!

And now he is kissing Schwarzenegger's butt!. We all know why! He wants to take Schwarzenegger's job in 2010/

But I have news for Taco Villa....by the time 2010 rolls around, he will be toast. Everyone is getting sicker and sicker of him, and he has proved without a doubt that he is the most evil, duplicitous, lying, cheating, scumbag in CA.

Hasta la Vista....Taco Villa!!!!!!

The Democratic Party has to be pissed at Antonio for taking a stand to be with Arnold. What will this do to their efforts? It will backfire on AV. He only wants to be with Arnold because of the LAUSD takeover and 2010 election. However, that just two issues what about the rest that Democrats hate Arnold over. Bad position for AV to be in.

That player, Carlos Salcido in the second row looks Metizo (or that would be the official government line - since native blacks like in Veracruz - are not counted as so in Mexican census - your either blanco or metizo).

This year's coach for the Mexican world cup team had the audacity to select to naturalized Mexicans (a Brazilian and an Argentine) and his son-in-law for the team over more qualified players.

Mexican soccer league last month closed the loophole - only native citizens will be allowed to play on next World Cup team - talk about xenophobia with a capital X.

Good forbid that Mexico get an African, black Cuban, or black Brazilian on the team and win the cup but ruin the pure racial make-up.

Easy! Shwarzenegger will be the next governor. Haven't you been watching little Tony and his boys like Fabian kissing Arnold's ass. Didn't you notice the governor just appointed Tony's sister as a judge? This stuff is easy to figure. If Angelides were to get elected, the democratic party would have to back him for re-election. But, if Tony and his friends get in bed with Arnold and Arnold agrees not to run again after this election it clears the way for Tony to run in 2010. The only reason you might not be able to figure this out is if you thought Tony and his friends had a scintilla of integrity. They do not and therefore this is easy to figure.
