“I came to know Carter well.

When he ran for reelection, he asked me to campaign for him in 1980 - I was by then Mayor of New York City — and I said that I would vote for him, but not campaign for him because he was then engaging in hostile acts towards Israel. I was popular with the Jewish community and when I would not campaign for him unless he changed his position, he called me to his hotel in New York when attending a fundraiser and said, “You have done me more damage than any man in America.” I felt proud then, and even more today, since we now know what a miserable president he was then and the miserable human being he is now as he prepares to meet with Hamas.”

this is the New York attitude at it’s best. The man writes with a clear conscience — I will gladly respect that.

Mayor Koch is one of a kind!

He’s as lucid now as he was 30 years ago.

If only there were more Democrats like him instead of the depraved, pandering Marxists that have taken control of the party.

Koch defines the term “loyal opposition”.

A patriot if there ever was one.

God bless you Mr. Mayor.

Mayor Koch is a very good judge of character.

Way to go, Mr. Mayor!

I supported Hillary Clinton for the Senate when she first ran and support her now in her quest for the presidency.

Ed Koch is a pleasant enough fellow and admirable in many respects, but his support of Hillary Clinton for President calls into question the soundness of his judgment regarding the personal and intellectual qualities a President ought to possess.

He’s a Democrat, and a poofter, but I still love the guy.

I had the pleasure of meeting His Honor Mayor Koch when I worked in NYC in the early ‘80s. A good man and a good mayor.

I am delighted to see he continues to call them as he sees them.

CARTER to KOCH: “You have done me more damage than any man in America.”

KOCH: I felt proud then, and even more today, since we now know what a miserable president he was then and the miserable human being he is now....

I always liked Mayor Koch even if he was a Democrat.

I always thought Ed would be a great guy to sit down and have a few beers with.

83 years old. Man, how time flies.

Ed tells it like it is not what liberals want it to be.
