I found the repeated "who did you vote for?" (going back to Guiliani) offensive. He should have responded "None of your business."

Certainly not someone I'd ever vote for, but since you invited him, he should be treated with respect.

If he can't even tell us which candidates he voted for, it means he's hiding something. I don't care which party he chooses to run for, he's not getting my vote. Next!

Creating non-profits to use school facilities is not going to generate money for the city, the money the non-profits pay the city will be public funds given to the non-profits. so the money will go around in a circle while the people involved will take their fat cuts.

We need an innovative leader, not a government program loving bureaucrat.

Typical right-wing fundamentalist Christian. He will receive the votes from some of his congregation and that's all. Otherwise, he is running as a spoiler...whether he realizes it or not depends on just how un-Christianly big his ego is.

Wow. This is actually painful. I feel bad for him.

I own a building with a big brick wall facing Third Avenue. If Erick needs a billboard space, he can have it!

Jesus, another greasy mouth politician. Can't even answer the simplest questions about when and who he voted for. Even used the standard perp answer..."I don't remember." NEXT
