John McCain" Huffington Post - Buzz Obama's 527 24/7

Senator Buzz Obama, like Sinclair Lewis's character Buzz Windrip, won't engage John McCain without a Leni Riefenstahl Pageant format - The Audacity of Hype.

There will be no Townhall exchange with Senator John McCain.

Obama's mass of Soros funded Daily Kos, MSNBC, Movon.Org allow the inexperienced and shadowy Illinois Senator to keep his distance from the American People.

Buzz Obama fronts some dangerous and well-heeled people: Soros/DNC/ACLU/Ayers/Rezko/Pfleger/Dohrn/Wright/Farrakhan/SEIU/ACORN/AFCSME/Hollywood/CAIR/Chavez & etc.

That is the Grassroots support. Seems to me like Obama Campaign is Bundling and laundering millions via the Internet and passing it off as Grassroots.

When Obama trotted out his Great Seal of Self-Absorption - he tipped his hand.

Sinclair Lewis's cautionary tale It Can't Happen Here is must reading for all patriots. It is a great read.

Huffington Post is an attack 527 100% in the Obama Campaign. Give it a look. It is packed with bad writing from third tier talents. More people look at celebrity magazines than they do the The Atlantic. Some goofs actually believe that Keith Olbermann has something to say. Go figure. Rachel Madddow is no Dorothy Parker.

I grow tired of the false mantra that Chicago is better under Daley.

1. There was an urban resurgence renewal nationwide with New York, Los Angeles, and even Cleveland getting makeovers, less crime, innovative policies. The New York renewal was much more dramatic and change from the status qou under than Mayor Guliani.

2. Daley (like Clinton) inherited through no work of his own:
a) a strong stock market
partially due to
b) the 90s internet and tech growth some in the form of a bubble.
Some say that it is because of the internet (which the Department of Defense "invented") and the fiscal policies under Reagan and the economic growth already started under Bush I--I am not certain if that was true but it is interesting to discuss.

3. What is UNIQUE, SPECIAL, DIFFERENT that Mayor Daley did not only compared to other cities as mentioned in #1 above but also compared if (I guess at least theoretically or academic) there was a MAYOR
Washington did not die
or Sawyer continued on as Mayor
Eddie Vrdolyak
Dick Mell
Don Haider
Bernie Epton
Tim Evans
Ed Kelly
Ed Burke
Tom Hynes
or any host of other candidates.
Many of the ideas that Daley gets credit for were from others
flower pots from the late Netsch or Navy Pier from Jane Byrne or the Vietnam Memorial etc.

4. Daley has been the most corrupt Mayor since William Thompson and the Capone era with insider deals and stealing that is bigger than ever in the history of any city on the planet (maybe absent some gulf oil state)
Tim Degnan and the jobs and construction deals and trucking.
Jeremiah Joyce and McDonalds, Haagen Daaz, O'Hare airport, the Cable deal etc
Walsh Construction, McDonough construction, the Hanleys, the Duffs, and now onto international deal and higher end finance in Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Bear Stearns like Bill Daley, Patrick Daley, Vanecko etc.
And that is just the Irish from the 11th and the 19th wards. All no bid, and not doing a good job, and obscene profits, no competition, sweetheart deals--let alone the mob connected guys like Tommy DiPiazza, Freddie Barbera, Michael Marchese (buying land for a dollar), the Bridgeport Village scandal, Hired Trucks, Mike Tadin etc.

5. The Hiring Scandal goes deeper than just patronage or getting a precinct captain or somebody's cousin a job it goes to:
a) that Daley lied and said it was a fair system and there were applications, and tests and interviews and Daley lied and it was a farce
b) Daley did not reward the people who helped him and many people got hurt or cut out so that Daley could consolidate power so the rules of reward by politics were broken which is why there was not more of a defense of Sorich and Slattery or that HDO is so hated insofar as mostly 11 and 19 were taken care of and primarily one ethnic group--Irish.

6. Chicago has for most of Daley's tenure as Mayor (with the exception of maybe 2 years out of almost 20 so for 17 years or so and 18 next year) been the murder capitol of the US (and maybe the world outside war zones and certainly the murder capitol of the western industrialized world) of any measurement including percentage and/or pure numbers.
This with Daley's crying about gun control constantly and defending police scandals that included police under his leadership hiring other police to kill other police and police running drug rings and supposedly in the past but including in his tenure as State's Attorney and briefly as Mayor for the 1st two terms or less allegations of torture and not guilty death row inmates (many of whom were career criminals anyway) who had their testicles electrocuted.

7. If you are monarchist or fascist than it doesn't matter but if Democracy is important than Daley is the worst example of a dictatorship and not caring about the will of the people than any Mayor in the United States (at least any major city) with no term limits (as have New York and Los Angeles), with unconstitutionally high signature requirements (25,000 which is 5 times higher than governor), strange voting machines with serious questions, and a politically connected election department including the late mother in law of the 11th ward alderman and politically connected lawyer Langdon Neal who makes tens of millions off of government with real estae especially the much abused eminent domain. Daley ripping up Meigs Field (COL McCormick was turning over in his grave), his rants aganst Alderman Fioretti, Joe More, and Brendan Riely are sick, unprofessional and shows Daley has no class.

If you dig deep into the past of Daley (which the media gives a pass besides maybe occassionally Tim Novak of the Sun Times or John Kass of the Tribune) there are stories of the Fireman Quinn being the bagman and the Daleys pushing out the girlfriend and having Quinn sign everything over on his deathbed.
The Daley investment into the Nuclear plants that ComEd bought out raised some eyebrows never to be thought of again.
Richie Daley failing the bar exam and Vrdolyak bragging he got it fixed with Cecil Partee.
Allegations about the personal life of Bill Daley.
John Daley marrying the daughter of mobster and bookie Mary Lou Briatta and John Daley getting all the Hired Truck insurance and much other insurance but he had his insurance exam fixed that he could not pass it.
Michael Daley at Daley and George on so many Chicago deals.
Patrick Daley and his cousin Vanecko on the MSS (and other) deals or the past with the incident in Michigan where the kid went to the hospital after being baseball batted Bridgeport style (the same type of behavior which got Frankie Caruso--Tootsie Babes son a felony attempted murder) and other allegations of violence that have been covered up--but all you get is Sneed articles about how handsome Patrick Daley is or Bill Daleys birthday or how he is so great at some investment bank that would never allow any other John Marshall grad and bar failer.

Daley is corrupt, petty, mean spirited and lacks class.
Chicago is a great city in spite of Daley, and not because of him

What do you think of State Senator Martin Sandoval going to the private Hispanics meeting with McCain? What do you think about other Hispanics in Illinois who are relatively prominent flirting with McCain especially in the Veterans community?
