The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization.

Booing the Alcalde

As you probably know by now, Albuquerque's Mayor, Martin Chavez has picked his horse in the Democratic primary - Hillary Clinton. It doesn't come as much of a surprise that the Almighty Alcalde chose the former first lady as the Clinton's and His Honor share many of the same qualities. (We'll let you decide whether or not that's a good thing.)

The Albuquerque Journal (and just about every other MSM outlet) reported on Senator Clinton's Saturday rally here in the Duke City (Subscription). They talked about the candidate's "enthusiastic" reception, the 3,000 in attendance, her new stump speech, the comparison to Obama's 8,100 person overflow crowd at the convention, heck they even talked about the music being played before the arrival of the candidate.

What The Journal didn't talk about was Clinton's local backer Martin Chavez and his reception at the event. At these types of things it's customary for the headliner to recognize their high ranking supporters, particularly when that supporter is the mayor of the town where your rally is being held. Our Eyes tell us that while the headliner may have been warmly received, The Almighty Alcalde was treated to a chilly reception that included quite a bit of booing.

If any of you are still wondering why Mayor Marty dropped out of the U.S. Senate race and is now trying to have his term limits overturned, Saturday's rally should provide the answer. Marty is not considered a true Democrat by the party faithful - particularly those of the more left leaning persuasion. Thus, the mayor will find just about any race that includes a primary almost impossible to win.

Since Albuquerque's municipal elections are "non-partisan," he has the ability to pull votes from the Republican Party and run in a crowded field. In that type of environment, name ID becomes more important than policy. In short, it's the only race in the state that Marty has any chance of winning - assuming his popularity among Republicans holds. If our Eye Polls are any indication, Marty is in deep trouble even if he does manage to overturn the city charter's term limits.

Well if I was a looking for an endorsement I sure wouldn't want his. Not the fact of his lousy track record the fact that whoever he chooses, they lose, and they lose big.

Sorry Hillary but if you were in touch with NM you might have realized this.

Hilary must have been dupped by the farce numbers from US Mayors and Marty's green award and his nomination for world mayor. These politicians (staff) should do better homework.

I'm sorry I missed the BOO event. I certainly would have lost my voice.

The Republicans will not be behind that LOSER Marty Chavez in any furture elections, you can count on that!

His own Democratic Party even knows what a loser he has become!

Stick a fork in the Mayor, his political future is OVER, and he knows it!

Way too many bad appointments! They cost him his political future. Marty should have never taken all that bad advise he was given....

Insider told me that Hillary wanted to avoid even talking about Marty's endorsement.In other words, she wasn't real happy with him inviting himself or aligning himself with her.
As for the Obamanation; let's get out of town before he( Marty) shows his face. How sad. Nobody wants Marty on their team, except some of the loser Republicans who can't hold a job and want a place at the table.

The Mighty mouse probably thinks if he endorses Hilary he'll become popular with the women in ABQ.

Forget about his DV's, the way he treats his children, and his female employees. I know I'm not voting for Hilary today.

Marty popular with women? Please, as a women I'd rather do myself. I'd get more satisfaction with a ball point pen.

Oh Marty, Dude, I would say that was a direct kick to the balls, but apparently you don't have any...

A ball point pen? Gotta love her.
Hey thumb dick your days are numbered. Enjoy the crash landing..

You'd think the Hildebeast would be jumping for joy at the endorsement. If it quacks like a despot and walks like a despot, chances are, it's Hillary or Marty. Kissing' in a tree. Crappin' all over The Republic for you and me.

How can Marty seriously be even considered "Green". He's a freakin' hypocrite! He drives a Tahoe, he has body guards drive him around when he drinks/parties too much. He's the very definition of "EXCESS IN AMERICA" he's a sawed-off freak who nobody takes seriously! He's gotta go....!

Seems like everyone the Mayor supports loses in Albuquerque. Hilary Clinton may take the state of NM, but the mayor, throwing his support behind her, didn't help her one single bit in the city.

Hilary was smart to try to stay away from the Mayor.

Obama, was also smart to avoid the Mayor.

Our sources tell us that Big Bill arned the Clintons to avoid Mayor Martin Chavez, as he is bad news.
