Gov. Schweitzer: Montana presidential race “dead dang tied”

A couple of western governors stopped by the Big Tent today to chat with the bloggers, and not surprisingly, I managed to get in the first question with both them.  Above is an unedited clip of Gov. Brian Schweitzer of Montana, who appears on the verge of breaking out into superstar status after his incredibly well received speech last night.

Coming up later, a video interview with our very own Gov. Chris Gregoire of Washington.

    By 2012, you’ll be able to elect any Democrat you want as governor, congress person, or president. And the Republican Party will be no more than a prison social club.

    proud leftist spews:

    He was my favorite for VP, but I guess Obama didn’t get my emails (not that I don’t love Joe Biden). Brian Schweitzer has more charisma and common sense than any politician I’ve seen in quite some time. He has a bit of a history with marijuana, but does anybody really care about that anymore?

  3. 3

    I-Burn spews:


    But about the coup that the Republicans are supposedly ready to launch, should they lose the election? Doesn’t that negate your assertion about 2012?

  4. 4

    ByeByeGOP spews:

    No we’re not worried about a coup from chickenhawk chicken shit republicans iBurner/AKA HMS. Your side only fights wars when they can send someone else to do the dirty work.

    We’re just going to win it all and seek out right wing traitors like yourself and bring you to justice.

  5. 6

    I-Burn spews:


    Why don’t you start looking right now, BBG? Surely a manly man like yourself doesn’t need to wait for anyone else. You should start rounding up all the right-wingers in WA so that you can be ready to go when the Dims win the election. Maybe they’ll even let you pull the trigger, yourself, since you’ll have “captured” so many enemies. Do it man. Go on and start giving all of us right-wingers the justice we deserve.

  6. 7

    ByeByeGOP spews:

    Unlike right wing fucks like yourself iBurner, I will wait to do it legally. Then yes I will gladly pull the trigger if I am allowed to and I’ll surely hope you’re one of the first traitors our courts bring to justice. Hell I’ll pull THAT trigger for free. Always glad to get rid of a traitor!

  7. 9

    I-Burn spews:


    Yeah, too bad you’re all talk when it comes to actually backing up your bullshit though, eh? You had your chance and you were too frightened to show up. Why would any other time be any different? My guess is that you wouldn’t even know which end of a firearm to point, let alone actually be able to use it on anyone. Especially if it was someone that wasn’t already incapacitated in some manner… Keep dreaming boy…

  8. 10

    ByeByeGOP spews:

    No iBurner – when I went to the mall and saw that like every other cowardly right wing turd I’ve ever dealt with, you’d chicken out. I wasn’t going there to dispatch you. That would not have been justice. Now if you’d given me reason with witnesses, I would have helped you on your next road. But I was simply going to call you a traitor to your face. After that, you would be in control of your fate. Now you still have the chance to have that experience if only you could climb out of your mom’s basement and come to DL.

    Yeah but it’s safer in mom’s basement isn’t it bitch?

  9. 12

    I-Burn spews:


    BBG, you’re so full of crap, it bleeds out your eyeballs. If you were actually at the mall, then you saw me and pissed your pants, or something, you fuck. I was sitting there waiting for you for 40 minutes. I was sitting near La Hacienda at the food court, and you couldn’t have missed me – IF you were actually there. You either weren’t there, or you whimped out. I’d believe either one.

    So stop trying to rewrite history, loser. You’re a coward, and you proved it last Saturday.

    Come on… we all know that bibigoober is a lefty-wingnut. He can’t do anything on his own, he needs the government to do for him. Why do you think he is so insistent on a government mental health program.
    I should have told you not to waste you time waiting at the mall for him. His mommy doesn’t let him go to the mall by himself yet.

    Farmer Fred spews:

    BS (Brian Schweitzer) is a good speaker, and is a centrist democrat. IF the D party goes pro-coal, pro-public use for public lands (ie no more elist wilderness additions), pro-gun, pro-(sensible)drilling along with new energy sources, I’ll switch over. BUT, sadly, I don’t feel BO has his centrist common sense.

    On another note, how come Brian’s neighboring farmers, friends, even political advisers (hint:BT) are running (and voting) as R’s locally? Why was Brian trying to sell his farms 5 years ago (hint, it wasn’t because he was a good farmer!)? Why did Brian storm out of a meeting concerning scotch base (a product of mint production) after lying to fellow growers? When Brian was in Saudi growing wheat, ask him about his efforts to back-door Washington state wheat growers (hint:rojo).

    I am not saying BS doe’s not have political potential, I like his centrist positions; but some are strongly at odds with Mr. Obamas. It also proves that if Brian, can be a gov., anybody can!

    Have a nice day,
    Farmer Fred

    Swheizers a clown….. if that is your future, I welcome it. In the meantime, we’ll have qualified candidates running…
