That's not so good. Chicago is facing the same problems as the state as a whole.
true, but Rahn was on WGN yesterday talking about what he's doing. what was funny is how he was so subtle about what previous administrations have not done right. no names but that pretty much covers the Daleys. I think he's better for the city then anyone else that ran, and is watching the pennies.

I have to agree. I might not agree with all of his decisions but he has no problem being a strong leader and that's something the State could use as well.

He doesn't have much of a choice ... instead of dealing with the problems as a good mayor should do, Daley totally f'd over the city in his last few years. That parking meter deal alone was so dumb and short sighted.

Daley's legacy is that he made sure all the different groups got theirs in relatively fair measures. His financial handling was awful and as we learn more and more, not at all transparent Millenium Park which is indeed a gem was 4 years lat and 1
$17 million over budget and now we ar learning that there are some bonds or other obligations for the park which he agreed to but wasn't publicized.

The park is grand. The Bean has become the hallmark of the city along with the Picasso. I am quite sure he couldn't have gotten it passed if the true likely cost were known.

The parking meters.

Meigs Field being bulldozed.

Someone remind me of other good stuff he achieved in his 20+ years.

The pensions

Didn't you also say Obama was done after 1 term?

Too bad I was wrong, eh? How's the Obamacare rollout going for you? How's our jobs?

Here's another prediction:

Illinois will turn red in 2014. So will the Senate. And Bammy will be impeached in 2015.

You really don't have a solid track record at political prognostications.

I haven't really made any.

I was wrong about Obama but only because of dead and illegal alien voters.

We'll see if I'm wrong next November.

It's a propagandized state run media story against the latest liberal agenda about bullying. It will go the same route as their screams against global warming and racism.

Oh, and I was right about Obamacare. It's doubtful the dems will be able to wipe the egg off their face for allowing a partial government shutdown over it.

Meanwhile, Repubs are saying "told you so!"

How's it feel to be wrong?

That was my initial reaction, but ever time I read a new article, the story twists a bit. I've seen quotes from current and former team mates, black and white, all supporting him. Pouncey, Ricky Williams, and more saying they don't consider him racist and feel him dropping the N-word doesn't mean jack. One article said some of the black team mates considered him an "honorary black guy"(not sure what the actual quote was).

The latest from um-named sources: COACHES gave him the order for the proverbial "code red". They wanted Incognito to toughen him up and he was just following orders.

Basically, I'm seeing very few players who support Martin. Most of the outrage is from us outside the NFL locker rooms.

Is this the same NFL that seems to have wimped out when New Orleans had a hit list to specifically injure other players?

Is this the freedom all my friends on the right are so concerned we not lose and we are sending guys to Iraq and Afghaniston to fight for?
