First off, the writer is stating that comparing the TC to the other cities looking into the bike program, New York, Chicago, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, Philadelphia and even Paris. Has anyone every been in these towns? Going from DT St. Paul to the Midway is NOT like going from the Loop to Navy Pier in Chicago. No comparison.

Second, that last paragraph is just wrong. Both, Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussain Obama thought that Iraq had chemical weapons (we already know he did use them against the Kurds) and wanted nuclear weapons too, so to say that it's a Republican love of oil is disingenuous at best. Of course, we won't let facts get in the way of another "yellow bike" story.

Gotta love (or is it loathe?) the quote at the end. "Republicans hate bikes; we love them!" Clueless. Absolutely clueless. I won't tell him how many miles I put on my bike each week. I'm willing to bet that it's more than that clown, and I'm NOT voting D this year.

I could probably tolerate liberals more if they weren't so stupid.

"Republicans hate bikes"? That's as silly as saying Al Franken pays taxes.

So now we will have toe-tapping, alcoholics, who enjoy making money by putting Americans in body bags on bikes. I thought I saw everything, but can not wait to see this.

Aren't these bikes mostly going to be used by the Republicans' servants so they can pedal along behind the limos?

I don't think so. John Kerry and John Edwards, the wealthiest presidential ticket in history, was in 2004.

The Dems will be burning candles on the bikes, to demonstrate their love of all things environmental. If ONLY I were as green as they! I just hope I don't accidently run them over with my big/evil SUV when I'm in St. Paul volunteering for the convention...

He had the ones he got from the Reagan administration, but he used them. There's no evidence that there were any more.

I can't take any of the article seriously, but that quote would render even a good plan suspect.
The bikes will mostly be used for photo ops (especially in Denver, where it's not safe to be so exposed.)

Considering that Franken HAS paid his taxes (he paid them to Minnesota instead of sundry other states), I must disagree with you. The quote IS silly.

I bet by the time the convention ends all the bikes will be missing. Letting repubs "borrow" anything and you will never see it again.

So the Democrats must be happy about this. Why is the Republican convention in St. Paul anyway?

All you get is angry Democrats, acting like the devil himself is coming to town.

Really? He paid nearly a million in state taxes on nearly a million in state taxes owed. The only error was in paying the wrong states.

Please sell your cheap lies to people without brains.
