When Mayor Giuliani, the feisty Italian-American Republican took charge of New York, he meant business. Crime went down, down, down.
Alas, today's big city mayor is more likely to be a soft-on-crime Democrat.
What do I mean? When Forbes magazine listed the 15 most dangerous cities in America - the political class ignored one embarrassingly obvious fact. Yes: 14 of the 15 mayors leading America's most dangerous cities are Obama-first leaders.
No. 3 Miami, Fla. Mayor Manny Diaz ("Independent,"Obama-first voter and 2008 DNC speaker)
Thanks to the "watchdog media," there are no efforts underway to determine whether or not America's Obama-first mayors are using "green issues" to distract us from their out-of-control crime rates. This is unacceptable.
