I know, its a really long title for a blog post but I couldn't sleep last night and was editing video when I reviewed this clip of part of my conversation with David Saucedo the other day. It crystalizes what bothers me about Saucedo.
Its the duplicity of the guy. The Hey-I'm-Just-Like-The-Average-El-Pasoan-Except-I-Was-Born-To-Privilidge-Never-Struggled-Went-To-Private-School-And-Had-Every-Advantage-In-Life rhetoric. The calling himself a progressive and a populist at the same time. The Republican pretending not to be...
I was reminded of it when I ended up in a circle jerk of his paid staffers on Facebook the other day.
After a while of watching people pretend you're supposed to support this guy because he's raza while you notice he never says anything about Trump's wall and votes for candidates that are bad for raza and this community, you don't know whether to laugh or feel like there's no hope for people dumb enough to buy is bullshit.
But being mayor is about being a leader. And being quarterback means you get too much credit when things go well and too much criticism when Romo throws another interception after getting a hangnail.
The Boys & Girls Club controversy is a big deal and when I asked Saucedo about it, it really gave me insight into just who he really is as a candidate. So I took about the part of the interview I previously posted and added some commentary that underscores my issues with him. I already posted the original interview so you can watch it without my edits, but my edits don't change the nature of what he said, I just slowed things down so you could fully understand what he is saying.
And frankly, its pretty damn inflammatory if you're a Boys & Girls Club Board members...
