Mayor Bloomberg booed at parade

Mayor Bloomberg was booed yesterday as he walked in the annual St. Patrick’s Parade in the hurricane-ravaged Rockaways.

The jeers grew so loud toward the end of the Queens parade that mayoral candidate and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn appeared to break away from the mayor to march separately.

A spokesman for Quinn later said she always intended to walk separately from the mayor.

Locals didn’t spare their ire over the area’s slow recovery, hoisting signs reading, “Mr. Mayor, we need jetties” and “Listen to the Rockaways.”

“We’ve been dying down here, up to our ears in muck trying to rebuild, get back to a regular life,” one heckler told The Post.

“For the politicians to come down here and try to take our celebration and make it their thing . . . it’s disgusting.”

Sounds like some unhappy union pigs.

The easy answer would be, "People can't stand the...

obnoxious little jerk." However, I figure the real answer is that people are tired of corrupt politicians using our wealth to oppress us.

People cant stand this guy

I have a sneaking suspicion he is still in the closet and hating himself every day for it. Thats why he has to pick on the populace and "regulate" things like "sugary drinks" or "telecommuting".. This guy is a total dictator wanna-be and needs to retire. How much longer are the people of new york going to put up with this douche bag?

Well, That Video & Post...

...was over-hyped. Very lame.

Looks

like they booed him because he didn't give them free stuff fast enough after the storms.
