DID BURNS & MAC MISTAKENLY BELIEVE HYPE ABOUT POWER OF KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY'S POPULARITY?!?



Kansas City outrage over the new airport RFP and bidding antics seem to have backfired against one of the biggest engineering firms in the nation that was hoping to win an EPIC contract by way of the charisma, charm and power of their strongest political ally.

Translation . . .

DID THE BURNS & MAC PLAN TO CAPITALIZE ON MAYOR SLY'S SOCIAL MEDIA POWER BACKFIRE AMID PUBLIC OUTRAGE OVER YET ANOTHER CLUMSY START TO THE AIRPORT CONVERSATION?!?

Their strategy works on paper.

Mayor Sly has 100K twitter followers and he gets nothing but good press.



However, he's quickly moving into lame duck status and there are no less than three major Mayoral contenders with many more waiting in the wings.

Better still . . . KCMO council is packed with lawyers and longtime power players who aren't that impressed with media celebrity that only lasts until the next bad news cycle.

Like it or not, banking solely on Mayor Sly for big money seems to be a horrific mistake for Burns & Mac that now looks like the bad guy as they chase a HUUUUUUGE airport contract and start a discussion that might last a lot longer than November.



Meanwhile, the majority of the airport conversation continues to take place behind the scenes as political players plant stories and consultants continues pushing their agenda disguised as "activism" online.

Hahahahahahaha!!

Yes, Burns & McDouche is a relatively inexperienced player in corruption. They seriously let their greed get the best of them, so much that they failed to see how stupid and inept Sly is.

Oh, that was their plan?

According to who?

Who has actually claimed or implied that was their "plan?"

Anyone reputable, or willing to put their name behind it?

Go ahead, we'll all wait.

No?

Didn't think so.

Sly will never get to congress if he can't butter some bread and deliver the pork.

It's all about making sure everybody eats well. Not just his friends and drinking buddies. He still hasn't learned that.

Let's make something clear. The airlines ARE NOT GOING TO PAY FOR A NEW TERMINAL. Repeat after me: THE AIRLINES ARE NOT GOING TO PAY FOR A NEW AIRPORT. They don't mind if we taxpayers do, but they are only going to pay their usual rent for the space they use. The City must stop saying what is not true. WE WILL BE PAYING FOR A NEW TERMINAL. There is no guarantee that the airlines currently using KCI will even be in business a year from now. Remember Braniff and TWA? Where are they now? For the last time, THE AIRLINES WILL NEVER PAY FOR A NEW AIRPORT. WE WILL. REMEMBER THIS WHEN YOU GET READY TO VOTE. EVEN IF YOU DON'T FLY AT ALL, YOU WILL STILL BE PAYING FOR A NEW TERMINAL.
