Maine gov. candidate: I’d tell Obama to go to hell

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – Republican gubernatorial candidate Paul LePage told a group of fishermen at a GOP forum that he won’t be afraid to tell President Barack Obama to “go to hell.”

LePage, a favorite of tea partiers, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he regretted the words he chose Sunday in the small coastal town of Brooksville but that he wasn’t backing down in his criticism of the administration for what he describes as free-spending, antibusiness policies.

A Democratic Party official said it showed LePage is hotheaded and ill-suited to govern.

LePage was responding to a question when he made the remark about Obama, which was captured by a Democratic Party aide who was videotaping the event.

Maine gov. candidate: I’d tell Obama to go to hell

Be very careful Mr. LePage, you’ll offend the namby-pamby, politically correct among us using such language as ‘go to hell’.

Oh what the hell, sometimes the ‘anal retentive’ need to be offended, it makes ‘em more active and a hell of a lot easier to spot! :twisted:

At this moment, I have a lot of respect for Paul LePage, I just hope he doesn’t say something like this and then turn around and apologize to Hussein Obama. We all remember Joe Wilson and his “You LIE” remark.

Wilson told the truth. People jumped for joy over his remark, but almost as soon as he made it, he retracted it and apologized profusely.

NEVER apologize for telling the truth!

“As your governor, you’re going to be seeing a lot of me on the front page, saying ‘Governor LePage tells Obama to go to hell,’” LePage said to applause.

If Paul LePage keeps on making remarks like that, and backing them up, we’ll see him a lot on the nightly news. That is a good thing!

Earlier this month, LePage came under fire for uttering a barnyard epithet at a news conference in Portland when he was asked about property tax breaks on his wife’s homes in Florida and Maine.

“Am I politically correct all the time? No. Maybe it’s time to have people say bluntly what’s going on,” LePage said Wednesday. “The fact of the matter is that I haven’t learned how to speak out of both sides of my mouth yet.”

Someone that says, oh, I don’t know, just taking a wild guess here, but did LePage say ‘bullshit‘ maybe? That doesn’t make him a bad person you know! But saying it is more than enough to send the overly sensitive PC among us off and running, crying and blowing snot bubbles like a 3 year old.

LePage isn’t politically correct all the time? A man after my own heart, a breath of fresh air in all this overly PC bullshit! I hope Paul LePage NEVER learns the art of talking out of both sides of his mouth, America needs a lot more folks just like him.

Arden Manning, manager of the Maine Democrats’ coordinated campaign, said the video provides some insight into how a LePage administration might govern.

“If he’s reacting this way to the president of the United States, think about what his response would be to a local legislator or a constituent who disagreed with him,” Manning said. “His comments are offensive. It just shows that LePage is not ready to lead.”

The namby-pamby come in all sizes, shapes and colors. And from ALL sides of the political spectrum. The right has ‘em, the left has ‘em and every other party in between has ‘em, and I am thinking that they are all full of bullshit and can go to hell right along with Hussein Obama!

There are a few words I try to avoid on the front page of my blog, at all times, the *N* word and *F* bombs mostly, I don’t like to use those words unless they are totally unavoidable and 100% appropriate for a given situation. But if a bit of salty language offends you, you’ve never hung out in a combat zone, over seas or at home, you’ve not watched any television lately and you just wouldn’t understand the true need for a good *swear word* vocabulary on occasion.

LePage’s remark was part of a longer discussion of issues at the fishermen’s forum. Dennis Blodgett, the town’s GOP committee chairman, said much of the discussion focused on “too many federal regulations being crammed down our throats.”

“Whether you like it or not, he gives you an answer,” said Darrell Fowler, a Brooksville selectman and a Republican. “He doesn’t beat around the bush.”

This guy sounds a lot like ME. I’m straight up about things, I don’t beat around the bush, I’m far less than PC and a few folks think I’m a rude bully simply because I speak my mind, in NO uncertain terms, and I don’t take ANYTHING off of ANYONE!

There’s a pun about ‘John Wayne’ toilet tissue that would fit well right about now! :P

Eliot Cutler, one of three independent candidates in the race, said LePage’s remark about Obama, coupled with his quip during a debate that he’d ask the president “to get out of my state” rather than ask for federal help, demonstrate that LePage is a “crude bully.” Obama and his family visited Acadia National Park in July.

There ya go, Eliot Cutler is the perfect example of a namby-pamby PC wuss.

Here’s the deal Maine, if Mr. LePage is too mean, too un-PC, and just too big a bully for you bunch of spineless asshats to handle, send him to Texas, I think Mr. LePage and I may get along wonderfully. I detest spineless people, no matter who they are. It seems he does too.

“I don’t care whether the president of the United States is Barack Obama or George Bush or anybody else,” Cutler said. “You don’t tell them to ‘go to hell.’ You don’t tell them to ‘get out of my state.’”

Maybe YOU don’t… :twisted:

    This is al that I know about this guy, but I have to say I like him so far. People complain when politicians “talk around” the questions without ever giving an actual answer, and now this man gives an honest, straightforward answer and he is criticized for it.

    I find it refreshing to hear a man say what he means and doing it without regard for what is politically correct.

    Obviously, Mr. Cutler hasn’t spent much time in any of the finer “Red States” in our Union! Definitely never been to Texas!!!

    Never heard of LaPage, but I like him!

    ‘you’ve never hung out in a combat zone, over seas or at home”

    You’re sure right ’bout that, Fred. When I got home in ’68, I couldn’t eat with the rest of the family for 6 months ’cause my mouth had a mind of its own. I never heard of LePage either, but as long he doesn’t start an apology tour a la Trent Lott, I like him.

    Hey TF, what is that phrase…?

    Wait for it, wait for it. . .

    “The Truth Hurts”. . .

    Indeed.

    Right here….” he told the associated press that he regretted the words he chose Sunday” …….. bullshit!!!!!
    Say it and mean it g’dmt. Who gives a rats ass if some libberpuke asshole is video taping it, give HIM the finger too while looking straight at the camera. This namby pamby shit that Fred speaks of is nothing but a bunch of cowardice shit
    on their part and that’s what the hell is wrong with the whole dam country. I haven’t heard too much about Lepage but he should take some cues from Governor Christie of New Jersey.
    I LIKE that guy. So far, he isn’t taking any shit from anybody especially the union goons. The libberpukes and BO can kiss my ass before all of them go and take that double watermelon assed old lady that hates America with him. They can all go to hell becaiuse that’s where their headed anyway.

    I am SO ANTI PC! I have imagined as a silly woman before the “what if”. I own truck garages. I’ve imagined that “what if” Hussein Obama brought his truck to my shop to get fixed.

    As professional as I can be – we’d fix his truck well the same as we do any other – but I could NEVER bring myself to shake that man’s hand. As a Texan – that’s quite a statement! I’d do him a good job, take his money – but would NEVER shake his hand.

    AFTER I took his money and he got his well fixed truck back – I might tell hem to GO TO HELL AND MEAN IT!

    I never thought I’d say something like that to a sitting President – even Carter (puke)…but being the salty Texan lady I am – I just might tell Obama to GO STRAIGHT TO HELL and take all his loony’s with him.

    Hey, Fred – you sure this “LePage” fellow isn’t your long lost twin?

    I’d say Mr LePage is a bit soft… Telling someone like Obama to go to hell is pretty timid if you ask me. How about:

    “I’ll tell Obama to Kiss my A@@ you filthy, stealth muzzie, maxist radical, lying arrogant prick”

    That sound you hear Robert is Me clapping. Right on!!!
