In response to Gravelten4's comment:
I preface the follwoing questions by saying I mean no disrespct to your mayor)
1. Has he alwasy talked that way? Garbled, swollen tongue, marble mouthed. Do you remember him as a young state senator or rep or any other elected office. If so did he talk like that then.
Yes he's always been like that
2. Is he a very interlligent man? OR is he a very intelligent politician?
No he's actually very dumb and gets excited like a dog when he thinks he does something right. I'm not joking watch one of his press conferences when he makes an announced plan for the city to help the citizens like banning non-diet soda's from public buildings, his eyes grow wide and his mouth opens to the point where you think his tongue is going to fall out and it flies left and right looking for approval
From an outsiders stand point he appears almost mildly mentally challanged at times. (again no disrespect)
3.Does he have a health condition that hampers his speech?
Yep it's called tongue lapped. He is so busy licking the boots of the unions that continue to get him elected that he can no longer speak properly
I ask the questions for two reasons. First his most recent flub can while READING CHEAT CARDS while having interraction with the medio about the pats and ravens game. Something to do with both mayors. He was a joke ---again.
Lastly, We up here in Maine are fortunate enough to have a chest thumping , blow hards, bully speaking , Govenor-paul lepage. He shoots from his mouth with no questions asked. its borders on insanity at times. It gets old-fast. How about your boy. Does his get old or is it a sense of pride by now?
In response to NY-PATS-FAN4's comment:
I would guess they keep electing him because he has been one of the more effective mayors (or any type of public official, for that matter) in the country.
He is an extremely active presence in the city; a promoter of neighborhood initiatives; a leader against gang-based violence; an advocate for police, fire and emergency rescue personnel; a vocal, successful lobbyist for businesses and conventions (including the 2004 Democratic National Convention) to locate in Boston; a voice for community based health care intiatives and nutrition for the poor; a preservationist for parks and shared public spaces; a proponent of environmentally conscious initiatives that have made Boston one of the greenest cities on the planet; a graduate of UMass who has met with youth groups twice a month without fail (except for illness) since the early 90s; and a guy who has no bigger aspirations than to be mayor of Boston, and as such, is the rare politician who does not take himself very seriously.
Of course, he mumbles and stutters. Guess Bostonians should get rid of the bum.
I don't know if this was meant to be sarcastic or not but you have to be kidding me. The only thing he cares about is the hot topic of the day to get votes and giving back to the unions who continue to get him elected. The guy is the joke of the nation and we all know it. He had to ban non-diet soda's in public buildings because he went on a diet and everyone else had to too, he removed parking spaces in an already parking space straped Newbury street to create parking space patio's in the street for people to sit in?, he pushed for the zipbikes which most of them were stolen using stolen credit cards and the rest are rusting away in the winter because we live in an area where 8 months of the year people don't want to use bikes. That's just some of the comical errors Menino has made but thought they were great ideas, don't even get started all the benefits he gave away to the unions which are now bankrupting the city or how long that gapping hole was in downtown Boston because he wanted outragous fees and permits on the developer to build anything but what he wanted. This guy has been horrible for the city as a whole and only helps out those who are his voting base to keep him in power
