From the NY Examiner:
Bloomberg acts like a petulant child, a petulant rich kid. Like Giuliani, he has a thin skin when asked legitimate questions he doesn’t like. Rudy is a bully, Bloomberg is simply a nasty little rich kid. Both are control freaks.
New York may be an international financial market but it has always been run by New Yorkers, for good or ill. Now it is being run by a rich transplant, intent on reinventing New York in his rich image. It’s all about business. He doesn’t care about destroying the fabric of New York as long as he can remake it a rich man’s paradise.
There is a dark horse. That dark horse is Tony Avella, a city councilman from Queens who is no fan of mayor Mike. He has even taken his council colleagues to task for kowtowing to Bloomberg’s whims. He is most definitely against the out of control development under Bloomberg’s terms.
