Weekly Idiots: Culver, Obama, and Branstad

I feel the need to substitute the word incompetent for the word idiot today. It just works a little better and since it’s a Krusty world and you guys just live in it, I figure I can do whatever the heck I want.

Let’s get started.

Governor Chet Culver

Culver Thumbs UpCulver gave AFSCME until last Friday to renegotiate a portion of their contracts in order to stave-off a large number of state employee layoffs. Friday came and went with no news from the unions or the Governor. Culver spent last week in Washington D.C. asking Iowa WWII veterans for their vote while they visited the WWII memorial and then came back to Iowa to go pheasant hunting.

It’s pretty hard to negotiate when you are out gallivanting around the country Governor. It’s also not an ultimatum when you place a deadline and nothing happens when the time comes.

The unions just showed Iowans who’s in-charge, and it’s not the Governor.

Governor Culver, you’re incompetent and an idiot.

President Obama

obamaI don’t know how many people saw it, but President Obama was a complete ass following the shootings at Fort Hood last week. The cable news stations were told that the president would speak about the shootings prior to a previously scheduled appearance. Here is what NBC Chicago had to say about what transpired.

“ At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a “shout-out” to “Dr. Joe Medicine Crow — that Congressional Medal of Honor winner.” Three minutes in, the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms. Who is advising him?

Anyone at home aware of the major news story of the previous hours had to have been stunned. An incident like this requires a scrapping of the early light banter. The president should apologize for the tone of his remarks, explain what has happened, express sympathy for those slain and appeal for calm and patience until all the facts are in. That’s the least that should occur.”

President Obama, you’re insensitive, tasteless, and incompetent idiot.

Governor Terry Branstad

terryDude, I hope the speech you gave on Saturday night was better live and in person than it looked on-line. You looked good and your voice reminds me of that from a hall of fame sportscaster, but I think we all know that you were either not comfortable with the speech or you didn’t think to practice giving it.

While I’m at it, I’d drop the whole “governor” thing, people should just call you Terry. I remember back in the day when Jim Lightfoot was running. He had signs and ads that said, “Iowa needs Governor Lightfoot.” That didn’t work out well for him. I know you have earned every right to be called “Governor,” I get that, but politically I don’t know if it’s going to be helpful for you in the long run.

Terry Branstad, you have a lot of work to do. The early miscues of your campaign make you and those who work for you look like idiots.
