(WA) Gov. Chris Gregoire's Whereabouts are Unknown [to Obama Commerce Dept.?]
KING-TV5 ^ | 5 January 2009

Posted on 01/05/2009 6:07:14 PM PST by Publius

Gov. Chris Gregoire is out of state, but her office won't say where she is.

Gregoire was set to be the keynote speaker Tuesday at a pre-legislative session forum sponsored by The Associated Press, but her office canceled Monday afternoon. Legislative director Marty Brown will stand in for Gregoire at the forum.

Spokesman Pearse Edwards said that Gregoire will be making an announcement Tuesday morning, and that no further information would be released before then.

My guess is that Gregoire will replace Bill Richardson at Commerce. The bad news: Gregoire knows less of commerce than Richardson, except how to impeded it. The good news: Washington loses a recently re-elected bad governor (she beat Rossi for real this time).

If this happens, then under Washington law Lt. Gov. Brad Owen becomes Acting Governor in addition to holding his lieutenant governor's position, which makes him President of the State Senate. Then the Washington State Legislature schedules a special election to fill the remainder of Gregoire's term.

This could get interesting.

Of course, I could be wrong.

What we should be asking is why all of these odd appointments being made? What’s the connection between all of them?

Can’t 0bama please, please, PLEASE find a spot in his ‘0bamastration’ for my Governor, ‘Diamond Jim’ Doyle? (D, WI) He was in the running for US Attorney General...but he blew that, obviously.

Wisconsin is $4.5 billion in the hole...

P.S. She is another baby-killer.

Most likely she is in MN telling Smalley, “Yeah, you’ve done a good job of it, but let me tell you how I stole my election.”

The connection is pretty obvious ~ none of them have an arrest record for dealing cocaine ~ which is probably a rare achievement with Democrats.

She’s going to announce a huge load of federal pork for the Alaskan Way Viaduct project? They’re still trying to figure out the scope of the project. Now another tunnel is in the offing.

If so and Dino decides to run, PLEASE let him get a different set of "handlers." The last election he was aloof and wooden, and his fundraisers were working overtime to drive me off with the persistent calls for money late in the campaign.

Any possibility she’s gone underground to avoid prosecution like Rahm Emmanuel?

What’s so odd about it? It’s totally predictable. Last week OB was criticized for not appointing more women to the cabinet.

Prosecution for what? Incompetence? That’s not a crime. Among Democrats, that’s a badge of honor.

Oh, no. I would be really glad if Chrissy left the state, but that would be inflicting her on the rest of the country as well.

“”Looks like Obama is making himself look like a genius by surrounding himself with the most incompetent people he can find.””

No joke. At least we get rid of her but I can’t imagine what she brings to commerce besides left wing credentials.

She is a dud. Why is Obama scraping the barrel like this?

Because he has no friends. He's a loner. Axelrod pulls the strings.
