What were event planners thinking? This could be the Great Chicago Fire all over again:
When Chicago is lying in a pile of ashes next May, everyone remember that Rahm ASKED Obama to steer these events Chicago’s way after they lost their Olympics bid:
It will be the first time since 1977 in London that two international summits will be held at the same time in the same city. Security experts say it will be a security challenge that no American city has ever had to face. Planning is likely to focus on the possibility of violent demonstrations…..
…..Mayor Rahm Emanuel lobbied his old boss, President Barack Obama, hard to land the summit.
Somebody had a great idea for a “Conservative’s Summer Vacation” next year: renting a houseboat, popping some popcorn, sitting back, and watching the chaos as it unfolds. It’s gonna be a trifecta of fun in the sun –
just as the weather is starting to heat up.
Who needs the Olympics:
when you can watch idealistic hippies – who would like nothing more than to see an entire city burn – clashing with unionized cops who don’t hold a high opinion of kids who aren’t willing to work for a living?
Just be sure and lock up your daughters…..
….those politicians can be real horndogs.
** The G8 Summit will be held May 15-22, 2012; the NATO Summit will be held May 20-21, 2012. Obama is hoping that the Russians will attend and listen while all of the Allies discuss “Smart Defense“. Nothing like giving away your plans to the other side…..
