Jake Tapper talks to outgoing L.A. mayor

(CNN) - Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has been in the national spotlight for years, but he may never have been more under fire than last September when he chaired the Democratic National Convention and was tapped by the president to fix a political firestorm.

Republicans were belittling the Democratic party platform for not including a mention of "God" or stating that Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel.

    Politics and bibles. A combination with lethal possibility's for all. Soon, the position of office holder will be relegated to those with the best bedtime story. You can be lulled to slumber, with full knowledge that changes will occur while wrapped in the arms of the sand man. No surprises after that.

    He's pretty much a Dem socialist, who has nothing to offer this country, but corruption, dictatorship, and fiscal waste.
