With Baucaus off to claim his rewards for years of public misservice from his true masters in the corporate oligarcy it has been suggested that we replace him with Brian Schweitzer.
Before there is a headlong blind rush to anoint him as the western savior let us consider his true record.
Guns – all for them. Whenever, wherever and with no safety regulations. Even supported states rights “nullification” of federal laws if it meant keeping these tools of murder out of anybody’s hands.
Hardly a sane position.
Oil Sands + XL Pipeline – Burn baby burn. Pushed for and aided development of dirty energy irregardless of consequences. Who cares about the environment when there is a dollar to be made for the energy oligarchs. Supports and endorsed the XL pipeline.
A position that Sarh Palin can support.
Environmetal laws – Property rights trump silly rules that seek to preserve the planet. Only exception is when people want to use their guns to slaughter animals ( and other people by “accident”)
A shortsighted position.
Revolving Door – irragation engineer overseas to Ranceher to USDA appinted position to Governors mansion to mining operation to Senate seat to…..
How else can a poor country boy profit from Government service.
Support other D’s – Ran as D Senate nominee in 2000 while running away from away from Gore. Denounced D’s on Gun safety, Thinks Baucaus was outstanding D Senator.
Don’t expect him to dance with them that brought him to the dance.
And the list goes on and on. Basically a Montana Joe Lieberman. Someone who doen’t believe in the Constitution ( supported Nullification ), has profited from the revolving door, believes a carbon based economy is just fine, and party loyalty is a joke.
God help us all if this is the beszt the D’s can do.
