This woman makes David Dinkins look like a pillar of granite when it comes to placating mindless thuggery. Heck, Mikey Bloomberg could give her tips on how to at least rattle the sabers. But being this nincompoop Jean Quan already surrendered her city to the mob, her next best hope is for the lawless to, ahem, take some responsibility.
Oakland Mayor Jean Quan says the Occupy Oakland protesters camped outside City Hall need to move to a “less disruptive” location if they can’t learn to behave themselves.
“They have to take some responsibility, they have to step up,” she told KCBS-AM in an interview. “If they can’t abide by not camping at night and they can’t control the violence, they need to work with the city to move the camp to a place that will be less disruptive.”
Quan told KCBS she didn’t know where that new location could be, but jokingly suggested San Francisco.
What a card. She’s a national laughingstock and she’s cracking jokes.
Quan’s administration has gone back and forth on what to do with the camp in Frank Ogawa Plaza at 14th Street and Broadway, where there are now about 165 tents. First she supported protesters, then approved a police sweep to clear the encampment Oct. 25, then allowed the tents to return.
At a lengthy meeting Thursday night, several members of the City Council hinted that they would like the camp to go away.
That might be easier said than done, Quan told KCBS.
She knows how to play her cards, doesn’t she? Such bold, decisive leadership clearly shows she’s on the fast track to a top law enforcement post in a future Democrat administration.
