President Barack Obama.
OBAMA IN TOWN
The President is on his way to Scranton. He’ll address about 400 ticket holders at Scranton High School. It will be interesting to see the head honchos gathering around the President as he comes to town. Look for Lackawanna County Commissioners O’Brien and Washo to be on the dais as well as Evie Refalko McNulty and Mayor Chris Doherty.
CAIN WAS ABLE
A Georgia businesswoman Monday said she and Herman Cain had a 13-year extramarital affair, an allegation the Republican presidential hopeful denied as strongly as earlier allegations of sexual harassment."Here we go again. I didn't do anything wrong," Cain said on CNN. He acknowledged he knew the woman who was behind the accusation. Moments after Cain issued a preemptive denial, an Atlanta television station posted a story to its website quoting a woman identified as Ginger White as saying, "It wasn't complicated. I was aware that he was married. And I was also aware I was involved in a very inappropriate situation, relationship." Whatever happens with this new development, the many loves of Herman Cain will not do as much damage as his obvious inability to be a candidate of depth and perspective when it comes to the issues.
THEN THERE WERE 15
The resumes and applications for County Council Executive is being paired down. A scoring system was set up by consultant Ken Mohr according to a story in the Citizen’s Voice by Michael Buffer. Hopefully the Home Rule Transition committee will have about 15 names to look at and then the phone interviews will begin. Best of luck to the finalists.
BARNEY FRANK RETIRES
Long time Congressman Barney Frank has announced he will not run for re-election. Frank, one of the first openly gay Congressman said he was tired with the struggle of trying to be nice to stupid people. Amen man!
