Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

New York's own Mayor Bill de Blasio will make it official Thursday, announcing his candidacy for president. Of the United States.

He is both incompetent and crooked; oblivious and arrogant. He won his current job in a fluke election back in 2013, yet ever since has seemed certain that he's destined to be a major national figure -- despite falling on his face time after time.

De Blasio's pratfalls on the national stage have been comic; his failures here in the city tragic.

What a circus. I'm surprised our Cali governor, Gavin Moonbeam, hasn't jumped in. He's white, rich, young and good-looking. What more do the dems need? As the former mayor, he could bring San Francisco values to DC.

Gavin Moonbeam, hopes Trump wins, then he runs in 2024 ... thats my guess.

As SFO goes so goes California, then goes the nation. Isn't that the saying?

Making the whole country a ----hole, when was it great anyhow?

With 0 percent support, he has nowhere to go but up.

Moonbeam, jr. ought to run now, before the "investigations" into Cali's high gas and utility prices exposes the truth: it's Democrat policy.

As somebody who has actually voted for de Blasio twice before let me say that this guy is definitely not presidential material. It's not so much that his ideas are not worth pursuing; I think a lot of his policy proposals are good ideas. It's a character thing. Whenever _hit hits the fan the buck never stops with DiBlasio. It's always somebody else's fault, or he tells you that you're too stupid to understand how stupid you are to have a problem with something he's done. I withheld criticism long after my other friends on the left withdrew their support. Was he better than the alternative at the time? After Weiner and John Liu ran into their problems in 2013 hell yes he was better than the alternative. Still, I won't be too sorry to see him go. NYC already gave the world Donald Trump. I'd prefer we not add insult to injury.

So the folks who literally elected a TV clown as president are going to mock someone else?
