    Rahm to send dead fish to Ricketts

    Rahm to send dead fish to Ricketts

    Does this suprise anyone?  Oh, to not agree with Rahm Emanuel in Chicago:

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is not returning calls from the Ricketts family and is “livid” over a New York Times report that Joe Ricketts commissioned a proposal for a multimillion-dollar ad campaign linking President Obama to the president’s former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, according to an Emanuel aide.

    Joe Ricketts’s children, which include Obama bundler Laura Ricketts, bought the Chicago Cubs in 2009 and have been in talks with the city about renovating the team’s 98-year-old stadium, Wrigley Field.

    That appears to be on hold now.

    Ricketts now has a target on his back, and despite the fact that the proposal was just a proposal to him which was not acted on, his ability to deal with government will be severely hampered.

    Now had Ricketts been a major liberal billionaire, and had the proposal been to go after Mitt Romney based on his connection to the Mormon Church and its racial history, there would be no retribution by Republican politicians.  And The NY Times not only would not have cared, it would have fed the information to its columnists.

    How’s that 2008 election working out for the country, Senator McCain?

    “Senator McCain is very proud of the campaign he ran in 2008,” said Brian Rogers, the spokesman. “He stands by the decisions he made during that race and would make them again today.”

    Today’s San Diego Union-Tribune is carrying an AP article that claims these ads were “racially focused.”

    Letting people know that Barack Obama sat in church while Jeremiah Wright slandered the United States with his demonstrably false claim that the US government invented HIV infection for the purpose of killing people of color is now “racially focused.”

    “Joe Ricketts’s children, which include Obama bundler Laura Ricketts”

    And I’m supposed to care that a Chicago thug is dissing an Obama bundler? Ain’t happening.

    McCain does not learn from his mistakes, only a fool makes the same mistake twice. Fortunately we will not have to suffer from the same failure because he will not get to fail at running for president again giving us another incompetent democrat.
