I had the honor to appear again on the Tom Roeser Show WLS Radio 890 AM at 8:00 PM in Chicago. (Sunday May 1, 2011) This is the third time I have been a guest on this major show. I have been a student of Mr. Roeser at Roosevelt University , the best class I have ever taken period. In fact, when I have been on Mr. Roeser’s show, I was told I am gushing too much. The fact of the matter is, if you have a great teacher, you are inspired to achieve. I was embarrassed to ask Mr. Roeser to appear on my little Can-Tv show, but he agreed. I am hoping to pick apart the differences between Democrats and Republicans on many issues. Tom Roeser has been honored by the Catholic Church and has a great website. The writing on his website is of the highest caliber. Make sure you visit. www.tomroeser.com Thank you to Mr. Roeser and his great family.

It was no fun defending Rahm Emanuel today at the Chicago Board of Elections. Rahm Emanuel lawyers seems, hurt, scared, and lost for words. Mr. Morris, the Board of Elections choice to oversee this case was having a very long day. I was happy to see Mr. Odelson and Mr. Russ Stewart asked to be in a special group of trusted and experienced lawyers to oversee the event. I was surprised the Chicago Media painting a seen that was not reflective of the atmosphere. I also spoke with Mr. Morris and voiced my concerns that the entire room was filled with many hearings and cases. I think that will be remedied. All in all, the people in attendance were very nice and respectful, despite the lack of proper audio levels. One of the objectors put in his two cents regarding the lack of credibility at the Board of Elections. Many other objections were made and I think Rahm Emanuel did himself a major disservice by not showing up. Rahm looked like a coward. If you are going to run for Mayor and people make an objection, have the guts to defend yourself. I think Rahm needs to get his entire defense in order to avoid the perception of ciaos. Rahm really lost the chance to show he can lead out in front, instead of being a “wizard” behind the curtains. Rahm has lost all the momentum the press gave him and the word is out. You can see an ice-cold and in control Burt Odelson. Photo by Patrick McDonough
This morning was very nice when I met Jay Stone in the 48th Ward of Chicago’s North side. Jay Stone was part of the Shakman Settlement and understood the importance and significance of the ruling. Ben Joravsky one of Chicago’s best Journalist, has written about Jay and his political predictions. Jay has an amazing understanding of Chicago politics. I guess the apple does not fall far from the tree. Jay Stone’s website is http://stoneformayor.com or you can call him at 773.469.2526 I really like this picture of Jay and took some artistic liberty with it. Photo by Patrick McDonough.
