Zuma Dogg Political Strategy Advice For AUSTIN BEUTNER (Based on his comments in Los Angeles Times) PLUS: L.A. City News Tweets for 5/31/11

Austin, my man…you’re WAY better at making money, than Zuma Dogg…but when it comes to being your own political spin guy…not so much.

From L.A. Times Op-Ed:
Jim Newton: The race to succeed Mayor Villaraigosa: Beutner has just wrapped up 18 months of working for the government as the $1-a-year “first deputy mayor.”

That puts Beutner in an awkward position. When I asked whether he imagined himself running as heir to Villaraigosa’s legacy, he answered with studied caution. He was proud, he said, of the administration’s record for the 18 months that he was part of it.

Zuma Dogg, who thinks AB is the best solution of the candidates mentioned, so far, for “fixing the city,” offers this response in hopes he doesn’t blow it with people. Austin, you DID NOT CREATE THIS MESS…and no matter how many hats (or crowns) you’ve been wearing the past 18 months…DO NOT TRY TO GIVE THE PERCEPTION THAT YOU WERE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THINGS IN THE MIDDLE OF TEXTBOOK DYSFUNCTION (Aka: Antonio’s Administration!) IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU REALLY DID ACCOMPLISH GREAT THINGS…because public perception is that City Hall is on fire. You can’t convince victims of Japan reactor meltdown that, “We did SOME things RIGHT!” Again…I’m sure you did MAGIC, given the circumstances…but if you try to sell the public, when they ain’t buyin’ that…they will nix you instead of punch your chad. HERE’S SOMETHING THAT WON’T MAKE PEOPLE THINK YOU ARE Antonio in a suit for someone taller:

From: Mayoral Campaign Strategy for AUSTIN BEUTNER: Because Zuma Dogg already sees him walking into “human nature” pitfalls: AUSTIN BEUTNER: Some un-paid strategy from the master: When asked about being heir to Villar’s City Hall legacy, as deputy mayor…do NOT try to spin, “Proud of achievements (list achievements) over past 18 months.” The ONLY answer you can give is:

“I’m flattered that the mayor brought me on board, at city hall, to help figure some things out. Of course, I wasn’t elected into the position, and it’s not like I had control of the steering wheel. But it did give me tremendous insight, knowledge and experience as to how all city departments operate; where the problems lie; and understanding as to what it will take to, ‘fix the city,” as mayor. – (What) Austin Beutner (Should Be Saying)
