Analysis: ‘Career politician’ not an epithet in N.O.
~Leslie Jacobs, a former member of the New Orleans school board and the state education board who, like Murray, recently dropped out of the race, said polling data show New Orleans voters want someone with government experience. When they dropped out of the race, Jacobs and Murray each cited polls indicating a strong position in the race for Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu, a 49-year-old member of a prominent and popular political family who has held elective office for most of his adult life -- a career politician.
~Editilla Crowtellas~ I can't speak of Mr. Murray due to the Racial 3 Card Monte involved with a couple of the other black candidates and Murray's citing Race as his reason for quitting --not polls. I am disgusted by Poll Dancing campaigns.
Mrs. Jacobs offered so much in the initial "Idea" of her candidacy, yet to me she never actually Ran A Campaign.
Rather, Leslie Jacobs ran a Website, a Facebook page, slick Ads, Twits and Polls... but she never actually even attempted to get out there on the street and do Actual Campaigning.
That bothers me because I did like her most because of her relation to the founder of levees.org and y'all know where I come from wit'dat. She had brains, money, connections and personnel yet chose to keep it all up to her "Advisers" and "Manages", many of whom were simply to young to understand mayoral politics in this city. They had her folding before Mrs. Jacobs ever even played a single card, so much so you would think Landrieu was Dealing the Deck already. I do hope that should Mrs Jacobs make a Run for Council sometime, she will Actually Run the Gauntlet.
