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.
