Marion M. Rounds little pity party

Rounds to skip important meeting with new president elect Obama,

He also said that to show he’s serious about curtailing out-of-state travel, he won’t go to the Obama inauguration or Friday’s meeting in Omaha of the Council of State Governments.

So let me get this straight, Mike, you don’t have a problem with flying the fleet of state airplanes all over the state and country with family in tow, handing out millions in no-bid contracts to campaign contributors, but you can’t afford to drop a couple hundred bucks to drive to Omaha for a very important meeting? Kind of sounds like your own little GOP pity party because your party didn’t win the White House. In these incredibly terrible economic times, I would think it would be very wise to meet with Obama about green energy production in our state since he has vowed to spend billions domestically on infrastructure projects that include roads/bridges (something we badly need) and wind energy (something we have a shit-load of).

Stop being a little neo-con baby and get your ass to Omaha Friday.

If he doesn’t go, he can send me instead. I have a few ideas, and none of them would get done with Mikey at the helm.

He is such a brat. And where is the media’s pressure on this. I mean, the meeting is in Omaha, not Hawaii!

I don’t like that guy.

Maybe he should also work part time like the lt gov. If he can’t engage in meaningful debate and spread SD’s message what good is he?

Yeah, he’ll bend over backwards for Hyperion to pollute our state but won’t meet with our new president about green energy and infrastructure projects. I guess we know what his priorites are, big oil and big coal.

Do you think he has built a wall around his office?

Maybe he needs to take his meds…

Nah, he lives in Pierre. If it’s safe enough for Cheney, it’s safe enough for Mike.

You guys are just so mean. We need to take up a collection so Mikey can go to Omaha and to the Inauguration of Obama.

Rounds really should see the DC Event since his praise of Bush and adoration of him is part of the reason our South Dakota economy is going down the drain. Guess Mikey doesn’t want another reminder of his own ignorance.

Doug, I don’t think Mikey is ignorant, I think he is arrogant. His arrogance makes me f’ing sick to my stomach. Sometimes I have a hard time laughing about his shananigans.

All I can say is KARMA. I heard it is extra worst for Catholics.
