TKC READER QUESTION: WHO DO WE BLAME FOR KANSAS CITY LOSING THE 2016 REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION BID?!?!



The Kansas City elite seem to be working diligently at partying with top level Republican politicos in order to lure their 2016 convention.

The latest tidbit in this hunt for a GOP local party comes from a presser put out on Friday:

"The KC RNC 2016 Bid Task Force today announced that long-time civic leaders The Honorable Peggy Dunn, mayor of Leawood, Kan., and Terry Dunn, JE Dunn Construction Group CEO, will chair the KC RNC 2016 Finance Committee."

Never mind that those two rich white people don't mean that much to anybody outside of the metro area . . .

More interestingly . . .

KANSAS CITY INSIDERS QUESTION IF DEMOCRATIC MAYORS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE STATE LINE ARE CAPABLE OF EFFECTIVELY LEADING THIS KANSAS CITY CONVENTION  PUSH!!!

Here's a quote on the topic . . .



"The audience is RNC members, so, 2 democrat Mayors (???), they need to be supportive but absolutely not front and center, it simply displays that they are runing the bid and they are democrats, These fools don’t even know how silly they actually look."

Moreover . . .

Every so often mainstream media likes to pretend that Kansas City really has a shot at this convention if only to justify the exorbitant expense of all the junkets to party with GOP leadership.

And so . . .

GIVEN THAT KANSAS CITY IS SPENDING SERIOUS CASH TO PARTY WITH THE GOP LEADERSHIP TO LURE THE CONVENTION . . . WHO SHOULD WE BLAME WHEN THE BID FAILS?!?!

Mayor Sly and Chief of staff John McGurk already dismissed the white lady who started this Kansas City quest . . . So it'll be hard to hang this on her even if that's what everybody seems to want.

Rest assured, this question might put a damper on some of the partying in what everybody knows is a losing effort.

Like everything else that goes wrong at City Hall. The Mayor's people will blame the City Manager.

I blame the citizens, the state, the culture of oppression, the culture of systemic racism, the years of unresolved injustice, a broken court system, and lack of good morals.

As long as the platform is against unsolicited bulk email.

Can Cathy Nugent guarantee the convention for Merriam? It already has hookers and drug dealers, and IKEA is coming!

That should be "whom do we blame."

The further we stay away from these political conventions, the better. The only winners are the cops (lotsa new toys) and the developers (they get to build we don't need or want).

Why Did the Mayor not put Cathy Nugent on the committee. She was the one that started this quest. I guess he could not control her.

The notion that the convention of a major politicial party would be coming to KCMO was a joke from the start.
But there are donors to be fleeced and consultant contracts to be had and "since we've come this far, there's no turning back".
And if we can fool enough of the poeple enough of the time, maybe this scam can be parlayed into a new taxpayer-funded downtown hotel!
Everything's up to date in River City!

Runing?

I have lost faith in KCMO voters. The few that actually do go out and vote. They seem to accept bad governance as the norm.

It would have been hilarious if the GOP announced KCMO to host. I just want to see the reaction to that from all the hipsters and occupy wall st people.

Some people enjoy attending meetings, free lunches, free travel and their names in print.

Holland and James are Progressives. They think every thought that comes into their heads are anointed.

This was a joke from the beginning.

Who in their right mind would have a convention in a town that doesn't even have decent strip bars?

It's going to Denver. Legalized weed locked it up on jan 1.

They'll preach about family values all day and blaze all night.

Buddy Rumble and the Nazis did their best to welcome the RNC here. It's was the Anarchist, the Communist and the Socialist that stopped the RNC in Kansas City.

I can't see the RNC coming to a town that's 30% black.
