Holy cow, I can’t believe it, it looks like Chicago’s very own Mayor Richard M. Daley may have jumped off the Obama bandwagon.
According to the article, Mayor Daley, while speaking at the opening of the U.S. Conference of Mayors made the following observations regarding job creation:
1. Businesses that create and guarantee good-paying jobs with benefits for life should be exempt from paying federal taxes
2. The real world does not exist in Washington
3. You can rap and beat up the business community on a daily basis in Washington, but they create jobs. Government does not create jobs
Does his honor the Mayor realize that this goes against the current administration and the left-leaning members of his Democratic party? Much like Rush and Beck can say that for the first time today, “They are proud of Massachusetts”, your Mandarin the first time can honestly say that I am not embarrassed by something the Mayor has proposed.
How bad is it for the Obama administration that the heart of the machine that helped to get him elected is turning against him. I know what some of you are thinking, the Mayor would never turn against Obama, but I just can’t shake the feeling that the Mayor is directing his pro-business comments directly at the President.
The Mandarin, whose real name is 吏恆, joined the order in 1309, and introduced the Gormogons into England during the 18th Century.
The Mandarin enjoys spending time with his pet manticore, Βάρἰκος, or Barry (who can be found in the Bestiary). When not in the Castle…well, frankly, nobody is quite sure where he goes.
The Mandarin popularized the fine art of “gut booting,” by which he delivers a powerful kick to the stomach of anyone that annoys him. Although nearly universal today, the act of gut booting or threatening someone or something with a gut boot is solely due to him.
