Why National Harbor Will Never Challenge DC for Anything

All that fuss over National Harbor and Gaylord Hotel stealing heaps of business from DC is over. They have been securing some large conventions, but after three visits, count me as unimpressed. Among some other reasons that the project won't live up to the hype:

1. Rat problems. Well, DC has those, too.
2. Water problems. Uh, we definitely have those.
3. Stole the Awakening sculpture. They "purchased" it, I guess.
4. Lured the Children's Museum. Probably a good choice for the Museum.
5. Run ads like this: NO EXCUSE. What, this was the only stock photo for free wifi? Dude is pumped.
