Did you see the video where the Mayor Villariagosa addressed the concerns of the "community?" Did you see him try to calm everyone down, and explain, in Spanish, that here in America, it's considered "wrong" to attack police with knives?
Of course you didn't, because the Mayor didn't bother to show up. Villaraigosa pulled a "Polloraigosa" and hid from confrontation -- like when he refused to debate yours truly in the 2009 election. This Mayor only has time to show up for happy photo-op events and make videos featuring his favorite person in the whole world: himself.
He has time to make videos about vital issues like "Fashion Night Out," and to stand with fashion models to urge you to buy haute couture in L.A. But he doesn't have time for trifles like trying to prevent rioting in the streets -- rioting by the illegal aliens whose violation of federal law he aids and abets with his "sanctuary city" policies.
Irresponsible. Shameful. Disgraceful. That's the "leader" of America's second-biggest city. This is still technically America, right? You want to fix it? Four little words: Sheriff Joe for President.
In the meantime, look at how much time Villaraigosa -- too busy to prevent rioting -- spent gazing adoringly at his own reflection in camera lenses for "Fashion Night Out" and dozens of other videos posted to his own YouTube page. His office produces more video locally than Fox, ABC, CBS and NBC combined. Too bad he never produces any results for taxpayers.
