Am I correct in assuming Naheed Nenshi is one of those affirmative action mayors who was voted into town by the city's degenerate classes who do nothing of economic production, but pride themselves off of fanciful leftist causes like multi-culturalism, global warming, and other faux crusades? Hmmm....just like our president.
Well you Calgarians enjoy your little municipal decline for electing a potty mouthed child. At least our president acts presidential in that one regard.
He's a real piece of work: http://www.poletical.com/naheed-nenshis-contradictions.php
Calgary resident here.
Nenshi's just another Agenda 21 leftist: Hahvahd educated, er, indoctrinated, associate professor, Ahmadiyya Muslim in a city seemingly teeming with them (Muslims not necessarily Ahmadiyya). Gives money to projects like Pembina who are anti-prosperity, uh, anti-oilsands without repercussions.
He's kinda like Redford (Premier) with more feminity.
Not really, but kind of! When he was running for mayor the first time he did present a very real and credible alternative (you know the blah, blah, blah, teamwork, blah, blah, blah all working together blah, etc - kind of like your prez).
And he has generally done a good job, but he really has a thin skin and is a bully (kind of like your prez) and he really does like to spend money.
But the MSM went goo goo over him as the first Muslim mayor of a major city (particularly a redneck city like Calgary) and isn't that wonderful. He is a Ismaili muslim which is muslim lite, lives with his parents and I believe still collects his prof. salary from Mount Royal University at the same time as being paid for being mayor. The problem is that the opponents are rather useless!
Nenshi was far from a unanimous choice. Rick McIvor would have won in a landslide, but a local newsreader named Barb Higgins stepped into the contest and, on name-recognition only, split the conservative vote. Hopefully the conservative voters can reverse this mistake today.
I voted against Nenshi today, then had a business meeting. Several people at the meeting, intelligent, well-off, clever, were aghast that I had done so. When I asked them why they supported him I got the vaguest, most asinine stuff I have heard since the last time I asked people about their politically correct ideas.
Heinlein was right: man is not a rational animal, he is a rationalizing animal, who first uses emotion to decide what he likes, then rationalizes reasons for his choice.
