Breaking News: Bloomie does it again!
From the NY Times:
To the growing list of questions that Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg does not want to be asked, you can add one more.
At a press conference in Queens on Thursday, Mr. Bloomberg was asked if an economic turnaround would undermine his initial reasoning for rewriting the city’s term limits law and seeking a third term, which was that a city in financial turmoil needed his steady hand and business background.
Mr. Bloomberg interrupted the question, from the New York Observer reporter Azi Paybarah, having deemed it unworthy of his time...
With that, the mayor concluded his press conference, looked directly at Mr. Paybarah and said, “You are a disgrace.”
The Daily News' Liz Benjamin has a great zinger...
Ironically, Bloomberg once used that very word to describe...the City Council's effort to change term limits.
Actually, he said that was an "absolute disgrace." But why quibble?
In this version, he uses "disgraceful." But again, why quibble?
