The United States Olympic Committee sent out letters to 35 cities this week inviting them to bid on the summer games, but Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak has decided to officially decline the opportunity, according to Kristen Montag of Meet Minneapolis.

Don't blame him. Would be terrible for a city on the Federal dole to show it's Detroit-like areas. The gangbangers would have a field day with tourists.

That's because rt rybak is a limp wristed, flaccid, politician. He THINKS that he will have some really great "job offers" soon, but he is not a nationally marketable politician.
What he is, is a really corruptible politician, who never admits a mistake, who hasn't accomplished ANYTHING to brag about, who has wasted TONS of taxpayers dollars, and who fails to apologize to a single soul.
