Bloomberg's Lie to Me Finally Gets Noticed
It shouldn't come to anyone's surprise that a George W. Bush sycophant like Mike Bloomberg would lie. It only took three months of prodding to get noticed by the Democrats.
Freddy's Public School/Private School flap last week apparently spurred the Ferrer camp to not just factcheck their own site and fire the staffer who had been writing Freddy's diary, but also got them to do a little Oppo at Mike's place.
Where they found Mike's lie to me.
- Fred from Manhattan: How do you plan to get the homeless of this City permanent and secure places to live?
- Mike Answers: We're already bringing down the overall number of homeless New Yorker [sic]; that's why we were able to close the biggest family shelter in New York...
Fact: Under his four years as mayor, homelessness has skyrocketed a staggering 26%! And he knows it.
The man closed the largest homeless shelter in the city during a spike in homelessness. Ouch. Perhaps when he says he's "finally addressing homelessness at its roots," he's saying - homelessness is a reality, and to change homelessness, we need to change reality.
Typical Republican problem solving.
