Governors Gone Wild!

 governors-20081 

So what’s really up with some of our Governors? I’m making a list and checking it twice and have realized that in the past five years we’ve had an overabundance of distractions in Governor Mansions throughout the U.S.

Of course we have some really great Governors as well.

First and foremost we have Gangster Governor Rod Blagojevich – Chicago’s own Al Capone would be proud.  I don’t know what to say that hasn’t been said about Blagojevich this past week.  Gangster Blagojevich’s antics are way too rich and splendiferous to be called typical.  My personal belief is that he is egotistical to the point of stupid.  All eyes have been on President-elect Obama and Chicago these past several weeks so Blagoidiot made a decision to sell Obama’s vacant seat while he himself is being investigated by the FBI?  Insanity. Ludicrous. Stupid.

Today for the first time we hear from former Illinois Governor George Ryan, 74, who is seeking early release from a 6 ½ year prison sentence from President Bush. Ryan wrote a three page apologia where he tells the people of Illinois that “I want to make things right in my heart, with God, with my family and with those that I have hurt.”  Ryan, a Republican, was convicted of corruption in 2006 for a racketeering fraud scheme and is serving a 6½-year sentence.

Wed., 11/26: Barbara Walters Interviews President-elect Obama Tonight At 10pm EST. Obama to Meet Sarah Palin.

Obama Economy President-elect Obama really, really wants to keep his BlackBerry.

The President-elect tells Barbara Walters in an interview airing Wednesday night that he’s trying to talk the Secret Service and others into letting him keep his wireless device.

Authorities fear hackers could break into his inbox and harvest data that’s potentially damaging to national security.

Obama Walters “This is a problem,” Obama said with a laugh in the interview which will broadcast on ABC at 10pm EST tonight.  Obama believes that keeping his BlackBerry at hand will allow him to keep a better handle on his job because he will be ‘in-touch’ and not isolated from the ‘pulse’ of the nation.

“I’m negotiating to figure out how can I get information from outside of the 10 or 12 people who surround my office in the White House. Because one of the worst things I think that could happen to a President is losing touch with what people are going through day to day,” he told Walters.

In other news, Obama will come face-to-face with the Energizer Alaskan Governor who just won’t quit.   Obama’s team announced yesterday that he would meet in Philadelphia next Tuesday, December 2 with Democratic and Republican governors to bring them up to speed on his plans to reverse the financial meltdown.

“We’re going to be working very closely with governors,” Obama said yesterday. “This economic recovery plan will require their input, their participation.”
