What is going on in the world? First France goes about ousting local socialists who have been in power forever. Now New Yorkers greet their new socialist mayor on baseball’s opening day with a hail of boos as he throws out the first pitch for the Mets.

Boo yourselves you stupid mooks. How many of you booing voted for him. Or stayed home and didn't vote for the other guy. You deserve what you voted for (just like America deserve Obama).

And yet they elected him after having Nanny Bloomberg. It's not the guy was shy about his socialist plans.

No sympathy from Wyoming.

You voted him in, New York. Your "buyer's remorse" is understandable, but no sympathy here.

De Blasio (aka Warren Wilhelm, Jr.) certainly deserves to be booed, but I think a lot of the fans only hate him because he is a Red Sox fan, not because he is a commie.

New Yorkers don't have much time left anyway, not with Obama pushing Iran to nuke Manhattan to give him an excuse to impose martial and take away habeas corpus.

I would be inclined to boo him on his wimpy throwing motion alone. Isn't there ANY elected official -- other than GW Bush -- who played Little League as a child? NONE OF THEM (other than Bush) CAN THROW A FRICKIN' BASEBALL! It's embarrassing!

The 82% of NYC voters who did not vote got just what they deserved. What would have been so terrible about de Blasio's opponent? Isn't it possible his long term view for the city might have been better? I pretty much have an idea why voters stayed home. They said to themselves ( and others in their little circles; "ooooh, I could NEVER vote for a Republican ( shudder, shudder ). My grandfather said they were for Big Business and my father did too. Democrats are for the working man" Really? How many jobs do you think will develop in NYC if de Blasio's tax proposals go through? Glad I do not live there anymore.

Lhota, his Republican opponent, actually ran the MTA competently through the Hurricane Sandy preparedness and initial recovery efforts, and was a former Giuliani top aide, so he had far better credentials than de Blasio. Unfortunately, New York's history for the past 100 years has been they only put Republicans in City Hall when things are bad and only then when the Democrats control power in Washington and Albany, so whoever the craptastic mayor of the moment is has nobody on the Republican side to blame for their failures.

That means while it's nice to see the fans boo de Blasio now, if he runs for re-election in 2017 with the GOP controlling Congress and/or the White House, he'll simply blame all his problems on them, and get enough voters in the city to fall for it.

Demographics: 27% of voters are black and 27% are hispanic. They will vote for a democrat, any democrat. The crowd at the baseball game is hardly an accurate random sample.

No, not of the eligible electorate. The people there could actually afford tickets

Tickets cannot be purchased with SNAP cards (yet).

Lazy voters -- 80 percent never cast ballots in November, thinking they could live with a taller version of nanny state scold Mike Bloomberg before realizing to their panic that de Blasio actually believes the redistributionist rhetoric he espouses (others, like the governor up in Albany believe in redistribution, but not from their big donors or the trendies down the city -- Andrew Cuomo will sock it to Upstate New York by giving into downstate liberals on things like gun control or fracking, but he'd never stick a shiv in his key donor/voting block. De Blasio's a true believer and would take all their money and then march them out to the Fresh Kills landfill in Staten Island for disposal if he could get away with it).
