This Is Getting Ridiculous! “A-” Grade for Nixon?

June 29th, 2009 by mopns · No Comments


MOPNS: (4/22/09)  “From hiring crony’s, to investigating Republican state committeemen, to attempting to orchestrate the demotion of the leader of  the Veteran’s Commission, there seems to be a disturbing Taliban/Nixonesque pattern emerging here.”


“After Gov. Jay Nixon announced $430 million dollars in cuts and restrictions from the 2010 state budget, the Missouri Republican Party accused him of “mismanagement.” But it appears that Nixon was able to swing his ax without the tree falling back on him. Vetoes are never pleasant. They are a test of priorities. But while there was the expected disappointment and grumbling, Nixon seemed to dodge major fallout from his decisions.”

Seriously Dave, an A-? Even after we learned last week that Governor Nixon had broken another campaign promise and has awarded another fee office to a contributor??? It’s pretty easy to avoid a “major fallout” when the press is asleep at the wheel!

Reporter: “Are you planning on making reductions in the Governor’s office as well? Nixon: “I plan on losing 8 or 10 pounds this summer.”
