Maybe she had hard feelings about the Unions cheating in the recount getting her elected? Want to take bets?!
Oh, thank you Jesus!
But shes so good at stealing elections!
Lord, please send lightning bolts towards these two liars and cheaters. Thank you for limiting the damage they can do. Amen.
You betcha those Dem Mfers cheated. My cousin back in college interned for Rossi’s campaign during the re-count and everyone on the elections committee were Dems. He’s heard of how blatant Dems cheat elections but he witnessed it firsthand.
Oh, Gregoire is doing everything that she can to support the unions before she leaves office. She’s even dumped on the Greens to support the unions and Democrat Crony capitalism.
This has something to do with Boeing. The unions are about to get spanked and she doesn’t want to be anywhere near that come election day.
McKenna Announces Run for Governor, Calls for New Direction for Washington
Cites lack of leadership in Olympia, belief that better times lie ahead
Bellevue Speaking to an enthusiastic crowd at his old high school, Attorney General Rob McKenna tonight launched his campaign for governor. McKenna told the audience at Sammamish High School that under his leadership, Well have a government that matches our states spirit of innovation.
McKenna spoke of charting a New Direction for Washington state that focuses on job creation, the nations best public schools and a reformed state government that lives within its means.
Just the opposite. Congress is voting today on an Obama administration initiative to limit projects that receive government money to union members only.
Call your congressman, now! Tell him it is unfair and discriminatory to shut out the majority of the workers from government projects just because they refuse to pay union dues! This is an assault on right to work states.
Democrats are learning that governing is no fun when you run out of other people’s money.
Gregoire all but said that being a governor with nothing to do but make cuts is no fun. She hates it.
So which Democratic Senator is leaving?
I cannot imagine Christine not running for political office, and Senator sounds like something she would want to do.
They are cutting spending in WA state?
Gregoire was probably referring to the health care block grants that she was forced to support in order to balance the budget. She went to WA DC just a week or so ago and signed on to the Republican proposal, which kind of undermines Obamacare efforts.
She may also see the handwriting on the wall in regard to Obamacare being declared unconstitutional, after all the moves she has made to destroy the private insurance companies and medicare in this state.
The Democrat party is breaking apart in this state. It’s now unions vs environmentalists. All the Dems politicians have sided with the unions over the Greens. They are going where the money is.
Congressman Jay Inslee will probably run for the Democrats now. Depending on changes made to his district during redistricting, that may be a prime GOP takeover opportunity.
As for the gubernatorial race, I think that Inslee will be harder to beat than Gregoire, but McKenna still has a pretty good chance of winning.
We have a really good shot this year with Rob McKenna.
You mean, she’s not running at election thievery again.
Actually, no difference. Innslee is a leftist cow. When we lived out there he was our congress-roach. He is a liberal cow. No changes.
Please, not Jay Inslee! GO ROB MCKENNA!
Go, McKenna! He has my vote.
Why, is she not confident that the point-spread will be tight enough that she can STEAL another election?
Let’s hope you retire with some horrible arthritis, you tyrannical, left-wing scumbag.
When “capitalists” collude with a socialist government for a monopoly over their competition and their market-base, they abandon the principles of the free-market economy and of Capitalism.
The correct term is not “crony capitalism” but “corporate socialism.”
Let’s not allow the left to control the language, once again, to cast pejoratives on traditional American values.
This is an easy battle-of-words that we can use and use to condemn socialism, the core principle of which is centralized monopoly.
we can use = we can win
Gregoire knows fully well that Washington is headed toward fiscal catastrophe as a result of 30 years of Democrat rule. She’s getting out while the gettin’s good. Her likely Republican successor will be left to take the blame from Washington’s cretinous electorate.
Actually, the correct word for this project is, fascism. The project is actually a government make work project to benefit the United Mine Workers to try to make up for the hit that the east coast coal industry is taking from Obama.
I have been using the term, “crony capitalism”, because the Republicans in this county are endorsing the Democrat project and they were recently just promoting the movie, Atlas Shrugged. Crony capitalism is Ayn Rand’s term for the fascist relationship between favored corporations and government.
Mussolini had a more memorable term for the same system: “fascism.”
Agree, the language is important. I like “corporate socialism”. And prefer “government schools” rather than “public schools” because parents and even the school boards have little input anymore.
If that's the case then this is actually mediocre news.
"The quintessence of the German State philoosophy which finds its expression in the slogan, 'The Public Weal transcends the interests of the individual.' "
If Jay Inslee runs, that his seat is open. It was represented mostly by Republicans over the past 50 years. But only one of those Republicans (Rick White) was conservative and he only lasted two terms.
Well Washington is redrawing, I thought the rats had control but it looks like they have a commission do redistricting. It’s tied 2-2 with a non-voting chairwoman.
Old Slade Gorton is one of the Republicans on it.
