TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! KANSAS CITY STAYS LOSING GOP CONVENTION 2016 BID!!! DALLAS AND CLEVELAND MOVE FORWARD!!!
Kansas City Mayor Sly danced for some rando Republicans for NOTHING as this cowtown was just dropped from the GOP list of potential host sites.
CNN: Cleveland and Dallas the finalists for 2016 GOP convention
Morover . . .
TKC TIPSTERS TOLD YOU SO!!! KANSAS CITY WASTED A TON OF CASH ENTERTAINING REPUBLICANS IN A BID THAT WASN'T TAKEN SERIOUSLY!!!
Remember that our blog community already agreed that Dallas was more qualified than Kansas City.
And we DUTIFULLY NOTED that even mainstream political newsies would rather go to Ohio.
Accordingly . . .
DEAL WITH IT KANSAS CITY: WE JUST LOST TO CLEVELAND - THE SECOND WORST CITY IN AMERICA!!!
Now, there's plenty of blame to go around here . . .
But only nitwits and newsies on the take will claim this is because of a TAXPAYER SUBSIDIZED convention hotel Mayor Sly is pushing . . .
IN FACT . . . MAYOR SLY AND CHIEF OF STAFF JOHN McGURK SHUTTING OUT GOP OPERATIVE CATHY NUGENT WAS THE MAIN FACTOR IN KANSAS CITY FAIL!!!
ONCE AGAIN KANSAS CITY SUFFERS FROM MAYOR SLY'S "WIN AT ALL COSTS" POLITICAL MENTALITY!!!

Also . . . We knew this thing was a flop because GOP Juggernaut Jeff Roe didn't go anywhere near KCMO's bid.
Finally . . .
The inside deal is that Mayor Sly simply couldn't stand sharing power or the spotlight . . . The convention hotel line is going to be foisted upon the public this week because it's part of the Mayor's agenda but in reality it was Mayor Sly's bullying style that blew Kansas City's chances and deserves the blame.
Here's the RNC Presser Thanks to AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS . . .
RNC Selects Cleveland and Dallas as 2016 Finalists
WASHINGTON – Today, the Republican National Committee’s Site Selection Committee selected Cleveland, Ohio and Dallas, Texas as finalists to host the 2016 Republican National Convention. The committee’s decision was based on a thorough review of bids, presentations, and visits to each of the cities.
Following today’s meeting of the RNC’s Site Selection Committee, Chairwoman Enid Mickelsen issued the following statement:
“After extensive review the site selection committee has chosen Cleveland and Dallas as finalists for the 2016 convention. Cleveland and Dallas demonstrated their ability to host a phenomenal convention in 2016, and the RNC is excited about the prospect of hosting our convention in either of these great cities. After visiting both cities, I can say to my fellow Republicans that we should be excited for the 2016 convention. These world class cities know how to roll out the welcome mat, and more importantly they have the ability to provide our next presidential nominee a launching pad that will put a Republican in the White House in 2016.
“The committee extends our sincere thanks and gratitude to Denver and Kansas City for their hard work and dedication to this effort. Both teams should be proud of their work. They were great ambassadors for their cities, and we felt fortunate to visit and get to know them. This was a tough decision for our committee because all four of these cities made excellent bids.
“As we move closer to choosing a host for our convention, I’m more confident than ever that we’ll have an outstanding partner to showcase our Party and our Republican nominee in 2016.”
