    NYC had Dinkins, New Orleans had Negin, the USA has Obama. If this does tell you something, nothing will.
    Don't give incompetents a job that can affect the lives of their constituents. They were & Obama is FUBAR.

    Hey Phil:

    Why limit yourself to three? Former Detroit Mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, and associates are another stellar example.

    Kwame's mother, Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, is a former seven term congresswoman from Michigan's 13 Congressional District. A former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus and member of the socialist Congressional Progressive Caucus, mother Kilpatrick is best described as a total leftist loon.

    Serving on Kwame's city council was Alderman Monica Conyers. Miss Monica is the wife of leftist despot John Conyers. 'Honest John' is a founding member of the Congresssional Black Caucus and long time member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. He's spent 48 YEARS sucking from the public trough in the U.S. House of Representatives. He currently miss-represents Michigan's 14th Congressional District.

    Kwame, Miss Monica, and mother Kilpatrick no longer hold public office. Concurrent with their exit from 'public service', Kwame and Miss Monica added "convicted felon" to their resumes and are currently serving time in federal pens.

    Isn't it a mystery how the City of Detroit can find itself in the proverbial toilet when they keep such stellar leadership at the helm? I'm mean, what could possibly go wrong, lol?!

    How about Ol' "Cash-in-the-Freezer" Bill Jefferson of Louisiana?

    When the subject is U.S. Rep. William "Dollar Bill" Jefferson, the one and only fact most people only know is that authorities found $90,000 in his freezer. Jefferson is in fact, a well rounded crook and ethical midget. Following are two quick highlights and one related (pun indended) tidbit.

    1. Jefferson was charged with 16 federal felony corruption counts. He was ultimately convicted on 10 of those counts and sentenced to 13 years in the federal pen.

    2. Like every other lib dem, Jefferson was all about the people. For example, almost immediately after Katrina hit and WHILE RESCUE OPERATIONS WERE IN FULL SWING, Jefferson hijacked a National Guard detachment to "rescue" personal belongings out of his home. In the process of hauling Jefferson's sorry @ss plus his belongs, the Guard truck got stuck in a flood ravaged neighborhood. While desperate people were sitting on roof tops waiting for rescue, a Guard chopper was called in to further assist in the "rescue" of Jefferson's pesonal belongings. How's that for chickensh!t on a monumental scale?

    3. The "related" pun...

    Crime and politics are apparently part of Jefferson family genetics. Dollar Bill's brother Mose, their sister Betty, and their neice were all part of a RICO indictment. RICO as in "Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act" for Chr!st sakes! They all plead guilty or were eventually convicted.
    How's that for a family tree?

    Phil:

    There are at least five things that should be career enders for what I'll euphamistically call "public servants". In alphabetical order they are

    1. AVARICE

    2. CRIMINAL offense

    3. IDEOLOGY contrary to the public good

    4. gross INCOMPETENCE in the performance (or more accurately, the non-performnace) of official duties

    5. a consistent and/or appalling lack of MORALS and ethics that fails to rise to the level of crime

    One or more of the above listed characteristics accurately applies to everyone named on this thread with the possible exception of former NY Mayor David Dinkins.

    The phenomenon of electing and re-electing known rotters certainly includes black America. Marion Barry, a former three term mayor of Washingtion D.C. (correction: 4 terms) and current (city) Council member, is arguably a perfect example. However, politics is replete with non-black examples.

    Big city mayors provide a common example. Former Cleveland mayor and seven term U.S. Rep, "Dennis the Menace" Kucinich, is lilly white and defines incompetence. His irresponsible decisions as mayor in the early 80's put Cleveland into financial default. His socialist ideology is a detriment to the entire nation. A two time democrat presidential candidate it should come as no surprise he's a proud member of the socialist Congressional Progressive Caucus.

    For other mayoral examples look at a list of every Chicago mayor for the last fifty years.

    Congressional examples are simply to numerous to list. The first to hit my personal radar screen was Wilbur Mills a former House Ways and Means chairman. The chairman of Ways and Means is arguably the third most powerful position in the U.S. government. Color me silly but I don't consider it a good place for someone who's alcohol addled.

    Three of my personal favorites are U.S. representatives Dan Crane (R, IL) Gerald Studds (D, MA) and Barney Frank (D, MA)

    Crane and Studds were both centured by the U.S. House in 1983 for sexual relations with underaged Congressional pages. Sexual relations means they were LITERALLY screwing these kids.

    The conservative republican district Crane served in central Illinois fired Crane's sorry @ss (by a landslide) the very next election. Studds who admitted butt f... that is, um... sodomizing a 17-year-old male Congressional page was easily re-elected by his overwhelmingly liberal Massachusettes district. Six times in fact, until Studds voluntarily retired in 1997. In what may qualify as an example of cosmic humor, Studds dropped dead at the age of 69.

    Barney, a perpetual rotter and (you guessed it) proud member of the socialist Congressional Progressive Caucus, is another alumus of those centured by the House for moral issues. Some may remember that Barney's flamer squeeze was busy running a homosexual prostitution operation out of Barney's D.C. condo. I may be silly but I still find that just a tad seedy. It also says something about the quality of Barney's judgement and the kind of people he associates with.

    I won't belabor the point any further.

    The Marion Barry saga is an absolute classic. There's no end of factual details available to anyone interested about hizzoner's past. I stole these from Wikipedia. They are a combination of funny and bizarre. Nobody can make stuff up any weirder than this...

    During his third term as mayor of D.C., Marion Barry was a full blown, non-functioning, out of control alcoholic and crack addict. He was arrested in early 1990 when the FBI videotaped him smoking crack cocaine in a D.C. motel with his squeeze Rasheeda Moore.

    In a case of overt race based jury nullification, Barry escaped conviction for most of the resultant criminal charges. Here's how wiki described it...

    "Six or seven jurors (of whom two were white and the rest black) believed that the evidence against Barry was overwhelming... Against these, five black jurors were convinced that the prosecution had falsified evidence and testimony as part of a racist conspiracy against Barry, and even disputed factual findings that had not been contested in court."

    Did everybody catch that? It was all a racist conspiracy. And the last part? The nullification jurors of their own volition disputed evidence presented by the prosecution - evidence that Barry and his legal team hadn't even contested. How's that for "don't confuse me with the facts"?

    Apparently, the videotape WAS adequate for a conviction on ONE charge. Barry spent time in the slammer. He was released in 1992 and successfully ran for a seat on the D.C. city council. He ran successfully for his fourth term as mayor in 1994.

    A perennial rotter and buffoon, Barry's current (aldermanic) webpage begins with the following:

    "Marion Barry, Jr., has dedicated 40 years of his life to public service, living the motto, 'always fighting for the people.'"

    How funny is that?

    I suspect the overwhelmingly black electorate of D.C. continues to re-elect Barry because of his early history as a civil rights advocate. However, in hizzoner's mind, some constituents are apparently more 'equal' than others. Hizzoner Barry clearly detests Asians and he has a rich history of racist comments direct at them.

    Google "marion barry racist" for numerous examples.

    PS: The next time you hear someone say in a political context, "republicans are just as bad", ask that someone to give you several GOP examples to match lib dem examples documented on this thread.

    Understand I am NOT a republican. I just consider the GOP more like the neighbor's irritating dog that barks all night as opposed to lib dem/socialists doing their best to create a zombie apocolypse.
