In this week's NY Observer, just on pages 16-17, we find Mayor Mike Bloomberg taking on the "gun nuts," as well as looking to increase recycling levels, and there's an appropriate mention by Joe Conason of Giuliani's gift to Bloomberg: "When he [Rudy] departed City Hall, he left on his desk a gaping deficit of nearly $4 billion—and Mayor Michael Bloomberg had no choice but to raise taxes."

He's not the first Republican to cut taxes while in office only to hand the deficit bag over to the incoming person to fix. But it's crystal clear that this country would be much better off if they had the current NYC mayor as a real choice for the White House, as opposed to his smoke-and-mirrors, GW-for-four-more-years predecessor.
