Candidates have tax problem with Mike

EVERY local candidate that Mayor Bloomberg has endorsed in the upcoming election is running away from his call to raise property taxes six months earlier than scheduled.

MIKE'S OWN CANDIDATES FIND HIM TAXING

GOP state Sen. Serphin Maltese is slamming his challenger in a tight Queens race, Democratic City Councilman Joseph Addabbo, for also lining up with the mayor on the property-tax hike six years ago.

"That tax increase is still costing the taxpayers of New York City," Maltese declared in a mailing.

That's awfully awkward for Bloomberg, who has repeatedly praised the "courage" of the 41 council members who approved higher taxes in 2002 to stave off financial calamity after 9/11.

"We obviously do not agree with Senator Maltese on this one," said Stu Loeser, the mayor's spokesman, a gentle swipe at Bloomberg's own candidate in a race critical to GOP control of the state Senate.

FORTUNATE FOR US ALL, MAYOR MIKE
STILL CANNOT MAKE THE FINAL PAYMENT ON HIS BID TO BUY OUT DEMOCRACY!

This arrogant pint sized
wanna bee Napoleon
didn't seem to realize that
even our shiftiest pols ARE STILL DEPENDENT ON OUR VOTES for their continued livelihoods!

If they support Der Fuhrer Bloomberg in raising the voters' taxes they're out of a job!

Tsk, tsk, tsk, such a dilemma!

SOLUTION MAYOR "B"(bastard):
Declare yourself King Michael the first and appoint these clubhouse pols your new lords, earls and barons.

Assign them their royal fiefdoms and pay them out of your own bottomless pockets.

H-m-m-m,
apparently "hizzoner" is not only turtle faced but terrapin brained as well!

Definitely not a long term thinker!

Sigh!
Just counting the days 'till he's finally gone!

What a damn hypocrite Mike Bloomberg is!

I have a great idea! It's called the Mayor tax. For every dollar in new taxes that Michael Bloomberg imposes on the working men and women of this great city he would have to personally match with his own fortune. I bet he would take a second look at raising taxes.

When is his term up? Can't come soon enough.

And, thanks Mayor Mike for screwing our 9/11 responders and other workers who made sure our city continued on. Nice job.

Can't wait to see you go!

"We obviously do not agree with Senator Maltese on this one. Nor do we think he is particularly sane or coherent. But Mike owes a couple of favors to the party he sold out (for his defunct presidntal campaign, funded by NYC taxpayers) so he made a deal to back this strange old man. Politics makes for strange bedfellows, eh"

Does this mean I have to sleep with the Mayor? Jeez, I'll have to clear that with the wife first.

Bloomberg looks like he's devolving in this shot.
