Conservatives failed to offer a viable alternative to the Democratic candidate in the last two national elections. Instead of carping about the current president, who is term limited, they might turn their energies to finding a candidate for 2014 that does more than spout negative bile.
As long as the average person can say pretty much what they want in online forums without fear of repercussion, we still have a government for the people. If we want to assure a government by the people, then we have to get out there and work for it. We get the government we deserve. Unfortunately, that includes the current mayor. Time to start looking for leaders to replace him come election time.
Attn. Liberals...not all conservatives voted for Bach. I was right with the Oldcrank shouting from the rooftop that old B. was going to be catering to the developers. Read mo money in the pockets of those they love.
I voted for Skorman, as a Republican, and many of us did.
But now here is something I want to point out to you. Many of you Libs are nothing more than the hypocrits you keep calling out the repubs for. Do you think your beloved BO is behaving any differently from old B? Both are damaging our country & city.
We all need to take a step back and make better choices for the better of all citizens.
Too many voters are voting party lines, voting for empty promises of blessing of insurance, or abortion, or citizenry, but we are all getting screwed by these elected officials who cater to corporations, unions, special interest. We need a government for the PEOPLE, and we have lost it.
Unfortunate to see Bach continue the trend of divisiveness and disrespect in government. He could have said that he will work with the Council to reach agreement on these issues, yet he chose to spit in their face.
He clearly isn't planning to run for office again, as he couldn't be elected dog catcher - but I'm sure that another old boy network clone will be found.
