This Democrat thinks he can win in 2016 as the anti-Obama
MSNBC ^ | 01/15/2014 | Benjy Sarlin

Brian Schweitzer, the former two-term Democratic governor of Montana, is rarely speechless. Once he gets going on a topic, he’s almost impossible to stop. As he builds up steam, he’ll slap his knee to emphasize his points. He’ll slap your knee to emphasize his points. Good luck getting a word in edgewise for that follow-up question.

But at the moment, Schweitzer is rubbing his chin, looking up at the ceiling, searching – unsuccessfully – for just the right words. The question was simple enough: Is there a single thing President Obama has done that you consider a positive achievement?

Finally, he spoke.

“My mother, God rest her soul, told me ‘Brian, if you can’t think of something nice to say about something change the subject,’” he said.

But he couldn’t help himself, slamming Obama’s record on civil liberties (the NSA revelations were “un-effing-believable”), his competency (“They just haven’t been very good at running things”), and above all, Obamacare (“It will collapse on its own weight”)

Be not deceived by any of his words. He is, at the end of the day, a lying, deceitful, back-stabbing, treasonous, leftist Montana democrat.

Montana democrats have learned to use protective colorization or any other sneaky trick to get elected. Then, the masks come off.

Two further words on the subject: max baucus.

I live in Idaho and I have always wondered how my good neighbors to the east continue to elect these libtards in conservative cloaks.

Its easy - THEY LIE!

“A MT Democrat is just a liberal in a Lamar! plaid shirt.”

The big question is; does the GOPe have anything better? I think not. I know the Tea Party has at least 5-6 that are better but I see no way one of them can win the nomination. Not as long as the Republican party is controlled by the GOPe.

Montana had a large surplus a couple of years ago.

The State Politicians spent it.

As if Republican is any better?
Heck, at least the Democrats strive for their stated platform-planks.

I, too, live in Idaho. I have friends across the border with whom I talk politics back and forth. Another big problem for Montana is that the university towns such as Missoula and Bozeman, with their concentrations of population, have become very liberal.

Look up “Brian Schweitzer Trial Lawyer”. He rigged elections in Montana. He is one nasty piece of work.

Add in the Reservations and the Union towns of Butte and Helena and some of the situation is explained.

The scummy left-wing nut who bragged about stealing an election ? That Brian Schweitzer ? He’s a perfect running mate for the Butcheress of Benghazi.

The only positive is that is an indication of how unpopular ObamaCare is. A lot of Democrats will lie and say they are against ObamaCare (because that is what the public wants to hear). Once elected, they will fight tooth and nail to support ObamaCare.

Same problem with Oregon and Washington. The eastern parts of the state are very conservative but sparsely populated. The coastal areas with the big cities are California north.

RE: In 2016 all Democrats will be anti-Obama.

Ahh, but will it translate to being anti-Hillary? THAT is the question.
