Daley's Doubts

"No we're not [breaking the promise] because we're not putting any actual money up," Daley said after it was revealed that city's Olympic bid will include a financial guarantee built from taxpayer money. "This is in case . . . everything breaks down completely . . . This would be like an earthquake. If an earthquake takes place, and I doubt if it's gonna take place."

Other things the mayor doubted would happen.

1. "I doubt that there will ever be big Xs carved into Meigs Field."

2. "I doubt we'll have much trouble getting Block 37 built. It's prime real estate!"

3. "You want to put WHAT all over the city? Plastic cows? Seriously, Lois, I doubt people will want to see that."

4. "I doubt those people are dying because of the heat."

5. "I doubt the Duffs are black, but what the hell, give 'em the contract anyway."

6. "A foie gras ban? Do what you want, I don't care. I doubt anyone will pay attention."

7. "Torture? By Chicago police? I doubt it!"

8. "I doubt this war will last more than a few weeks. The president knows what he's doing."

9. "Barack Obama? For U.S. Senate? C'mon!"

10. "Let the feds snoop. I doubt a Chicago jury would ever send someone to jail for running a little patronage."
