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!!!

Updated Local Links:

End of the road: KC out of the running to host 2016 convention

Downtown business disappointed by RNC convention snub

Winners and losers react to GOP bid finalists


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.”

Don't blame Sly.

He danced.

He DANCED VERY NICELY.

It was all he could do for Kansas City.

KC had not chance of getting this. It was all about Sly and Council ego thinking they could pull it off. Another example of them wasting taxpayer money on pie in the sky to further their agenda not the agenda or what's best for the people.

Friggin haters. They come in all colors.

Now the blame starts. This cost KC hundreds of thousands paid to relatives of KC staffers. This is a big scandal for KCMo in the making. The Mayor will have a lot of explaining to do.

Tony,

Why is there no reporting from the mainstream news of the current hotel shortage? Last night all hotel rooms in the Kansas City area, including as far as Lawrence were Sold Out. It is my understanding that a large convention, Skills USA, is in town as well as some other military exercise. This is great news for the city given that the taxes on many of these rooms are north of 15%. I am pretty sure the same is true for tonight. Every hotel that is branded, so we are excluding the pay by the hour hotels, was and will be again sold out as far away as Lawrence. Some brands were even saying they were sold out as far as Topeka. If you want to check it out call 5, 10, 15 random hotels from Lawrence to OP to the Plaza to the airport and you will find this.

Tony loves to hate Kansas City and all its people. He'd really, really be happier in Dallas. How about a fundraiser to buy him a one-way bus ticket to Dallas, and he can just open a blog there. He'll finally be with people who can appreciate his wonderfulness since Dallas is such a better place than KC.

the RNC would have been great for KC, but we just didn't have the hotel rooms. Plain and simple. watch for the Mayor's statements to come, doesn't mean we need a tax subsidized hotel, but its the plain fact. The GOP was waiting for Skills, because they wanted to come to KC, but we just could not accomodate it.

Surely nobody REALLY thought Kansas City would be anyone's choice? With all the niggers and all their violence and ugliness, this is the last place a rational human would want to hold a convention.

2:34, 2:31 has a valid point minus the hate behind it. the violence near hotels convention goers would have had to stay at is unacceptable. who from the DNC or RNC would want to stay at the admiral-paseo motel on independence avenue? no one. its not a clean hotel, read the reviews. and yet with the convention we have in town now, that place is sold out. call them and ask.

Our Mayor has a man crush on a terrible President. The ideology is so close. Force things on the people that they are not asking for. Too many sissy hipster liberals walking around without a clue, and mobs on the plaza. Not the ideal place for a Republican convention.

I know a guy who was staying at that motel for like a week. Kept complaining of a foul odor in his room.
They finally came in and pulled a dead guy out from under the bed!

Yep, it's coming. Mayor James: "This is why we've been stating for years the need for a new PUBLICLY FINANCED 1000 room hotel downtown. Now, it's so bad, we're going to need SEVERAL 1000 room hotels downtown if we want to compete for larger conventions. And I'm going to do everything in my power as mayor of this MotherFucking town to put a measure on the ballot for the largest tax increase I can get to raise enough tax payer dollars to build the hotels we need to compete with the Dallas', Denvers' and Indianapolis' for these conventions. Because these types of projects should absolutely always be publicly funded while the spoils go to corporations"

Watch, it's coming...stay tuned.

Well good for you. That's all I'm getting from this, Tony.

But it is better to try, and fail, than to not try at all. Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

once again kansas city shits on the northland. the whole james v burke mayors race result was set after the primary. but a large part of mayor james success came from the northland vote. northland public safety residents, ie local 42, and the northland republican vote, ie the kc st joe diocese (scott wagner) and some strong italian support. the loss of this convention for the reasons we lost probably won't spell sly's doom in reelection since he is the incumbent, but is the second (or more) slap to those that are growing in this city.

You know, a lot of you people are screwed up. It seems to me that this blog likes KC because this is the only place willing to tell the truth and try to make it interesting. Everybody else is just working public relations or advertising.

Anonymous said...

To those who desire to find fault, they never have to look far. They often find facts to support their negative conclusion, but their glee in finding fault marginalizes them from others.

Then they come to Tony's KC, where the collective whine of complaining is constant and persistent. The major actors of which include an over weight Hispanic without a real job, a bear that expresses love of the klan, and a cum rape guy that somehow feels better through the written expression of sick misogyny. Oh, and the self-loathing dweeb who is trying to come up with a new verb.

Free speech be damned. If the government shut down Tony's KC, I would shrug and go on my way.

To the haters, here's hoping the Royals win tonight and stick it up your rear ends.

So, just as yet another chapter in the KCMO clown show comes to an end, another door will open and in will walk a couple more con men from out of town with the latest "can't lose" deal to sell those hard-hitting business types that the city residents elect to city office.

Simple, we lost because we could not prove we could keep the tea-baggers out. The re-branding monster the GOP created has come back to bite the hand that fed it. Unless the GOP can keep those kinds of nuts away and give them less "ammo to fire" then the more chance they have of possibly winning.

But when you have an area of tea-bagging nuts: wanna-be-billionaire millionaire gun toting JoCo Locos to Missouri Ozark Klan members furious over a black president pitching their (false narrative) message here would be even harder.

Next time we market the city we can worry more about public safety and less about appearances, no one wants to choose a city where you can be shot or attacked while your visiting the city. That hast to be top priority.
