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.

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.”
