While some governors go out of their way to acknowledge the sanctity of military funerals, Oregons new governor says he wont attend them in his state if its inconvenient to him.
Gov. John Kitzhaber is making a departure from his predecessor, Ted Kulongoski, a former Marine who was so determined to attend military funerals he would cancel out-of-town travel to attend them. In fact, Kulongoski attended more than 100 military funerals during his eight years in office.

Let me guess what political party he’s affiliated with . . . .
Former Governor Kulongonski was indeed a patriot, albeit a liberal.
Kitzhaber is a true liberal @ssH&le!
There are just some states I will never live in, most are north of the Mason Dixon Line.
Who hired this jerk?
Jesus is that tool still around? Does he still wear little-boy pants in public?
To his credit, the moonbat Massachusetts Governor has made it a point to attend every funeral of every Massachusetts service member killed in action. That the slug from Oregon cannot do this speaks volumes.
You, sir, would feel at home in rural Indiana.
I can’t even comment on this steaming pantload ‘cause I’ve been warned too many times and will be thrown off FR.....
“Who hired this jerk?”
The wierd jerks of Portland
Kitz, you suck!!!!
If it weren’t for Portland you wouldn’t be in that office!!!
“if its inconvenient to him”
You get what you vote for.
At least the idiot could have said...”if I can’t attend, a representative from my office will offer our condolences.”
Still pretty cheap.
