AUGUSTA, Maine — The often-brash governor of Maine used crude language Thursday to express his frustration over the state budget, targeting a Democratic opponent with a sexually vulgar phrase to describe how he believes he is taking advantage of the people.

Gov. Paul LePage made the remark about Sen. Troy Jackson to journalists from two television stations and one newspaper Thursday.

Thanks rightwingintelligentsia.

The party affiliations were carefully included of course, in this completely unspun news story.

Sen. Troy Jackson, who is a logger in northern Maine,

He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees. I wear high heels,
Suspendies, and a bra.
I wish I’d been a girlie,
Just like my dear Papa.

He said Jackson sticks it to the Maine people without using Vaseline. Jackson may be a witless RAT, but he’s not a person with a “black heart”.

I’m wondering if Jackson lied in his response to the governor’s assertion about meeting with the leftist leadership. That could have been what set LePage off.

I can’t wait to see what LePage has to say about his upcoming gubernatorial opponent, who actually is a packer.

Democrats called the governor's words disrespectful and a failure of leadership.

Considering what dems have said in recent years about Tea Partiers, Sarah Palin's family et al... THEY'RE going to chastize LePage about "words?" It is to laugh.

"This man is a bad person," LePage continued. "He doesn't only have no brains. He has a black heart and so does the leadership upstairs."

Perhaps LePage might have merely said this.

But--on the other hand--it doesn't have quite the same punch.

How is it that truth can be considered crude? What he said is true, he said that a certain democrat senator is always putting it to the taxpayer without even so much as bit of Vaseline. Well, it is true. It is not crude it is an accurate representation of what the democrats do all over the country.

I live in Maine....Paul LePage is a conservative, TEA Party guy and he doesn’t take any crap from the dems.

As Gov. LePage said in his comments, “This isn’t about the next election, this is about the next generation.”

Gov. LePage frequently appears at pro-second amendment rallies, and even showed the crowd his conceal-carry permit.

Twice I’ve heard Ann Coulter on talk radio say she wishes LePage would run for president.

The good governor doesn’t need Ann’s endorsement

She’s still enamored of Christie.

Liberals are offended by his comments, which is an accurate description of “perfectly normal and acceptable” homosexual behavior.

I’ve heard Ann Coulter say she’s done with Christie. She once claimed that after Christie burst into tears upon meeting Bruce Springsteen, she, Ann Coulter, was “done” with Christie.

Is Ann now back on the Christie band-wagon?

His son graduated from Florida State the same year my grand daughter graduated. Their last names were so similar that they sat next to each other during the ceremony. Afterwards, we got to meet him and have our pictures taken with him. He seemed to be a real guy.

I am not doubting what you say, I am only asking, for while I am convinced Michuad is bottom, I would love to see proof.

The only bad thing I’ve ever heard Paul say was that he would be Maine’s Chris Christie. That was, of course, before Christie showed his real colors. I believe Paul was running for gov at the time.

“The only bad thing I’ve ever heard Paul say was that he would be Maine’s Chris Christie.”

Wow....I never heard LePage say that.

Christie, as we know, is a RINO.

LePage is the opposite. When LePage ran for governor in 2010, he was caught on video saying that if elected, he would probably spend most of his time telling Obama to “go to hell.”

IIRC that was said at a rally I attended when he was running. Christie was just becoming known.

About the only thing that I don’t like is his upcoming dinner that will feature Jeb Bush as well as Snowe (didn’t she retire?) and Collins. Bad company from a conservative’s standpoint.

Uncut Video: Gov. LePage comments spark controversy

http://youtu.be/Ely-hqmgBu0

Gov. LePage again telling it how it is. I think the American people will begin to elect politicians who tell it like it is like Gov. LePage and not sugar coat it with lies and PC statements so they do not offend somebody.

Gov LePage makes Chris Krispy Creme look like a PC Jeb Bush. While Crispy Creme tearfully hugs Obama Le Page tells Obama "Get out of my state"

Maine governor makes vulgar remark about lawmaker ...Le Page tells Obama "Get out of my state"..."the NAACP is a special interest group, they can kiss my butt" and many other gems.

A real politician would never dare say such intemperate things...simply leaving one to draw this conclusion:

He's not a politician!

He's a breath of fresh air...TEAparty.

You are right! I had thought of that after I had written it but had already hit the post button.
