Maine's New Governor...


In case you haven't heard about this guy before, his name will stick in your mind! The new Maine governor, Paul LePage, is making New Jersey 's Chris Christie look like an enabler. He isn't afraid to say what he thinks. Judging by the comments, every time he opens his mouth, his popularity goes up.


He brought down the house at his inauguration when he shook his fist toward the media box and said, You're on notice! I've inherited a financially-troubled State to run.  Observe...cover what we do...but don't whine if I don't waste time responding to your every whim for your amusement.


During his campaign for Governor, he was talking to commercial fishermen who are struggling because of federal fisheries rules. They complained that 0bama brought his family to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park for a long Labor Day holiday and found time to meet with union leaders, but wouldn't talk to the fishermen.  LePage replied, I'd tell him to go to hell and get out of my State. The Lame Stream Media crucified LePage, but he jumped 6 points in the pre-election poll.


The Martin Luther King incident was a political sandbag which brought him National exposure. The lame stream media crucified him, but word on the street is very positive. The NAACP specifically asked LePage to spend MLK Day visiting black inmates at the Maine State Prison. He told them that he would meet with ALL inmates, regardless of race, if he were to visit the prison. The NAACP balked and then put out a news release claiming falsely that he refused to participate in any MLK events.  He read it in the paper for the 1st time the next morning while being driven to an event and went ballistic because none of the reporters had called him for comment before running the NAACP release.


He arrived at that event & said in front of a TV camera, If they want to play the race card on me, they can kiss my ass! And then he reminded them that he has an adopted black son from Jamaica , and that he attended the local MLK Breakfast every year that he was mayor of Waterville . (He started his morning there on MLK Day.)


He then stated that there's a right way and a wrong way to meet with the Governor, and he put all special interests on notice that press releases, media leaks, and all demonstrations would prove to be the wrong way. He said any other group which acted like the NAACP could expect to be at the bottom of the Governor's priority list!


He then did the following, and judging from local radio talk show callers, his popularity increased even more: The State employees union complained because he waited until 3 P.M. before closing State offices and facilities and sending non-emergency personnel home during the last blizzard. The prior Governor would often close offices for the day with just a forecast before the first flakes. (Each time the State closes for snow, it costs the taxpayers about $1 million in wages for no work in return.)


LePage was CEO of the Marden's chain of discount family bargain retail stores before election as governor. He noted that State employees getting off work early could still find lots of retail stores open to shop. So, he put the State employees on notice by announcing, If Marden's is open, Maine is open!" He told State employees, We live in Maine in the winter, for heaven's sake, and should know how to drive in it. Otherwise, apply for a State job in Florida !


Governor LePage symbolizes what America needs; refreshing politicians who aren't self-serving and who exhibit common sense! (Please "share" with your email "listings")

This is the same guy who demanded that his "cash strapped state" spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to paint over old murals in government buildings? Why? Because the murals were seen as "pro labor", and therefore might be offensive to the "business community".

So his state is broke, but still somehow has money for frivolous crap like that to spare the feelings of his corporate masters. Intersting.

As for his "popularity", if he is anything like the other recently elected Republican governors Walker, Kaisch, Scott or Christie, his numbers are likely in the toilet. Give it time.

Sure enough, a quick search shows that his popularity is in the garbage. A poll in March showed it at 43 percent. Not bad, not great, but not very high considering he was just elected and people didn't have a reason to hate him yet.

A poll in May showed it at 30 percent. That's pretty incredible, that in 4 short months he managed to get to that level. Maybe he should make another iflammatory speech or waste more taxpayer money painting over old murals.

Hey Anonymous,
Here is a poll for you. I have only read your posts for about 3 days now and I already hate you.
I bet 1,000,000 also hate you.
Don't you have a job or something? All you seem to have time to do is bitch.

slackjaw said...

Yeah, he is a bit of a whiner. All he does is complains in an unreasonable, repeated, irritating way all the time.

slackjaw said...

But then again, the guy in the email post sucks too, so maybe he has a reason this time.

Anonymous said...

Is this the fake-name troll, now trying to troy posters who don't even have a name? I'm not sure if that is meta, postmodern, or just fucking stupid.

I bet 1,000,000 also hate you.

I bet the number is at least 10 times bigger than that, given how many idiot wingnuts we have in this country. Knowing who they are and what they believe, I take their hatred as a compliment.

Don't you have a job or something? All you seem to have time to do is bitch.

Posted during the workday by a person who constantly trolls this website. Irony?

All you seem to have time to do is bitch
Still the fact remains. All you do is bitch. I have the week off stooge.

Huh. Interesting.

So according to you two clowns, calling people out on their bullshit is the same as bitching? Refuting the lies of a liar is whining? Not really sure you understand what the words mean.

I find it especially intersting that you would go to a website whose sole purpose is to debunk, destroy and mock right wing bullshit, and then take umbrage when a commentor... does exactly that. Very curious indeed.

It should also be noted that I am not nearly the only anon who posts on this site, so who exactly you think you are critiquing or addressing is anyone's guess.

Have a nice day trolls.

@slackjaw

Don't hurt Anonymous feelings. Or he will really start whining like a little girl.
He lives for this crap.

Just post something about how the RW sucks and he will begin to love you again.

We understand that there is more than one Anonymous on the site. You just happen to be the bitchy one who posts 99% of the time.

Well the math doesn't support your assertion on this page. Try harder.

It is you who is the problem.
Just calm down.

Oh mercy me! I do believe I'm getting the vapors... Some random idiot trolls are confused about the purpose of this site, confused about what "bitching" means, and well... are just confused in general. How will I ever deal with all this?


He lives for this crap.

Well I do enjoy destroying the right wing's idiotic lies, but its more a of a hobby.

Just post something about how the RW sucks and he will begin to love you again.

Yup, posting an actual fact or two would go a long way towards getting you back in my good graces. Frankly I don't give a fuck.

Anonymous said...

Excuse me? What's the problem exactly? Some right wing bullshit gets posted, I respond pointing out that its bullshit, just like we have been doing on this site for years. What's the issue here?

Just calm down.

Who the fuck are you again?

Anne said...

Who the f*** are you again?

Your words are hurtful.

Progressives are around because they are better than Republicans. You are showing the worst of the liberal side. You should change.
Use your real name, not Anonymous so we can dialog like adults. Your cowardice is palpable.
People want change, and you should use less of the F-word and give constructive criticism.

Anonymous said...

Ah, the old "no naughty words" cop out. Fuck that.

Here's some advice "Anne", whoever you are (and I strongly suspect you are a handpuppet of our new troll): telling people that they are causing a problem and that they should calm down doesn't really help things, especially when you come in the middle of the conversation and pick the wrong side of it.

Again, here's what happens here: right wing bullshit gets displayed, we pick it apart. That's what happened. Occasionally a troll will come by to stir up shit, and we deal with it.

I don't really feel like being lectured by some troll handpuppet who comes in halfway through and doesn't seem to understand the situation.

Anne said...

Liberals and the 'left' should have the view that 'we are better than they are so we don't have to stoop to their level'.
As the 'left' is comprised today it can be dismissed, laughed at generally by corporations that run everything.
You are not helping make things better!
So I am done talking to you. Besides you are most likely the troll that you speak about.
You will not even post your name. Just remain in the shadows like some Republican who lacks courage.

Anonymous said...

That's some pretty weak trolling "Anne".

Liberals and the 'left' should have the view that 'we are better than they are so we don't have to stoop to their level'.

Why? What has playing nice every gotten us? Playing nice is about to let Republicans bankrupt our country.

Furthermore, saying "fuck", is not the same as "stooping to their level". Their level involves lying, cheating, stealing and playing a constant game of political Calvinball, then complaining when we have the nerve to call them out. This thread is a good example of that.

So I am done talking to you. Besides you are most likely the troll that you speak about.

MDWM. I'm sure you're happy to have the hand out from under your dress, puppet.

gruaud said...

Looks like we're playing 'whack a troll' today.

Notice that despite the heavy volume it (a single poster, multiple identities) isn't really debating, just distracting or playing the concern card. Old.

Although I admit that "Anne's" 'your words are hurtful' had me guffawing. Sure thing, babe.

Again: you can't defend the indefensible so you play games. That may make YOU handjobs feel good, but it doesn't fool the rest of us.

What, the French fry machine at work broke again?

Great, another Tea Party governor.

He doesn't mind spending the federal government's money, at least.
