Brooke sits down with Los Angeles’ democratic Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa at the CNN Grill. He is in Tampa during the Republican National Convention to defend President Obama. Brooke also asks him if he would be interested in running for higher office.

    I do like L.A.s’ democratic Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on his view about U.S. economic. The good economist looks beyond; looks also at the longer and indirect consequences; inquires also what the effect of the policy will be on all groups. Investing in bridges, schools, infrastructures, roads, railroads, highspeed trains, science and researches, new technologies, and so on are right now need for US economic to internationally compete. I would like to point out this statement from "Economics in one lesson": "The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy no merely for one group but for all groups". But Republican Party and its members have a different view about how to restore the US economics just to emphisize on one group (rich and big corporations) and reject working class (middle classes). These policies are bad policy for US economic.

    I do believe the dems have become the National Vagina Party. All they have to offer is free birth control pills and on demand abortions that we the taxpayers have to pay for. BREAKING NEWS Women can read and write and we want jobs and homes. The dems have nothing else to offer and I can't believe I voted for them in 08. I will not vote for Obama this time around. And yes CNN should not be so bias to the Dems. Report fairly on both sides.
