Mayor Nutter Says Feds Don’t Know What it Takes to Run a City

Mayor Nutter is on a tellin’ like it is binge. Today, on Meet the Press (online), Philly’s political leader expressed his concern that leaders in Washington may not have any idea what it takes to run a city. “I pick up trash and fill potholes for a living,” he said. “These folks have no idea—no real connection to—what goes on on a daily basis. Some, clearly, need to take, either an economics course, or get a better understanding of what it takes, as an executive, to get things done on a daily basis.” His sentiment is a little tamer than his “idiots and assholes” gem from last week, but the mayor continues to keep it real in the early portion of his second term.
