Spinning Thompson’s Record

In the spin room after last night’s debate, Bloomberg campaign manager Bradley Tusk attempted to sum up Thompson’s position on his own record by saying that he was “accountable for nothing, responsible for nothing and did nothing.”

“We need to set the record straight,” said Thompson campaign manager Eddie Castell, who checked off the number of ways that Bloomberg controls the schools now that were not available to Thompson earlier.

“You cannot say that all that happened at the Board of Education is Bill Thompson’s fault because as Michael Bloomberg himself has said, no one was in charge.”
