ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Days after a Republican was elected mayor of Annapolis, City Council members say they will revisit legislation that would strip the mayor’s office of much of its power.Democratic Alderman Ross Arnett of Ward 8 tells The Capital he will introduce a charter amendment to move Annapolis to a council-manager style of government. The city manager would report directly to the City Council, not the mayor.Under Arnett’s legislation, the mayor’s post would be largely ceremonial. The mayor would retain a single vote on the council. Arnett says the change would stabilize the city’s management.If the measure is approved, it would mean the Democratic-dominated council would be removing the powers of the first Republican mayor elected since 1997.
The democrats don't want to cede any power, and will do whatever they can to accomplish it.

Maybe if Obama somehow has a 70% approval rating. As it is now, he'll be lucky to make it through his second term without resigning, IMO. He's the most incompetent, yet egotistical, boob I've ever seen in politics. He's worse than John Kerry or John McCain, and that says a lot.
I agree. Even if Obama were – and he is – the most monumental failure of a Pres. in history, the history books will never reflect that truth. Because the politically correct masterminds of government will most certainly ensure the first black president in history is seen as a success. There is too much invested in that "fact."
