Morgenthau blasts Bloombo Dicto

Morgy's final swipe at Mike


Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau is going out with a bang, blasting Mayor Bloomberg for breeding sycophants and President Obama for fantasy foreign policy as he cleans out his desk.

Bloomberg "thinks all lawyers work for him" and "doesn't want anybody around who doesn't kiss his ring, or other parts of his body," Mor genthau, 90, told The Wall Street Journal in a fiery exit interview over the weekend.

A mayoral spokesman told The Post, "Morgenthau's comments are bizarre and we're not going to respond to them."

The legendary prosecutor, who will leave office on Thursday after 35 years, told the Journal he has maintained a good relationship with every mayor since Abe Beame -- except for Mayor Mike.

Tensions between the high-powered personalities flared again this month after Bloomberg accused Morgenthau's office of hiding tens of millions of dollars in secret bank accounts that are not registered with the city comptroller's office.

Morgenthau said Bloomberg was making "chicken-s- - - comments" about his office and said the controlling mayor just wants him to stop giving money to the state and turn over all money he recovers from criminals to the city.

Morgenthau also blasted President Obama's attempts at diplomatic relations with Iranian leaders.

"The president is smoking pot or something if he thinks that being nice to these guys is going to get him anywhere," said Morgenthau.

MTA ruins lives

Since every hard-working taxpaying citizen of NYC depends on the MTA to get to work, what does Mayor Bloomberg have to say about how the MTA keeps jerking us around ? While the mayor goes around slashing the budget of the office of the Public Advocate, and goes trolling around the office of the Manhattan District Attorney, it is the MTA that keeps “surprising” New Yorkers with its “unknown” yet “constant” budget shortfalls. It is the MTA, which has the biggest potential of ruining the family and household budgets of the average worker, this during the worst financial recession in my lifetime. Mr. Mayor, you ran for a controversial 3rd t3rm, now do something for the benefit of all New Yorkers. Raid the 2 sets of books that the MTA keeps.
