"BARRY DID A LOT OF GREAT THINGS FOR THIS CITY..." ETC. etc. ... Can someone please lay out in some more detail than the tautological and generalizing "he's great because he did great things" WHAT exactly Barry did that makes him so great in the mind of a few (loud) people? Please don't start and end with "he gave kids summer jobs" or "he gave Harriette Walters her job in the D.C. tax department," because neither of those accomplishments will do it for me or anyone else who has a brain and can identify a selfish, self-absorbed, narcissistic man who stays in power only because of dimwits who think he "did great things for us."
