Quote of the Day: “Unlike Democrats, Who Talk a Big Game…”

July 9th, 2009 by MarkTwain · No Comments

“Governor Matt Blunt ensured that there are two of nine members of the Board of Governors at Missouri State University in Springfield are African-American. Unlike Democrats, who talk a big game, Governor Blunt chose an extremely competent St Louis area resident from the same north St Louis/ North county with a methodical and deliberate search.” – John Winston, Former Chairman, Republican Central Committee of St. Louis County.

We don’t think Mr. Winston is buying the line coming out of the Governor’s office that Jay “consulted” with St. Louis area “African American leaders” before announcing his new appointment (latest snub) to the UM Curator’s Board.

We’d also be very curious to know just who are these “African American leaders” mentioned in Nixon’s statement? Will the Governor’s office release their names?
