Gov. Paul LePage at America's Small Business Summit

I love Gov. LePage. He's attempting to rescue Maine from the welfare state it is becoming, and he's driving the liberals crazy - it doesn't get any better than that.

rescue Maine from the welfare state

Teabagger Buzzwords. For what has he done, nothing, but embarrassed Maine and working strictly for the big businesses and profit takers...


His comment about breaking wind shows the lack of class this ass is...He is so full of it and is such an embarrassment to this state..doesn't this guy ever use his head before he speaks??? I think the state of Maine is going to be in shambles after this buffoon is done with it..God help us

I'm so glad we have a Governor who care's............

I was reading some of the tweet's coming out of Washington DC, and it would appear our illustrious Governor is at it again. If I were from another state, and I heard what LePage was saying about his home state, I would most likely comment on how totally idiotic this guy sounds. Being from Maine, I can only cringe at the thought of him being MY Governor. I have come to almost accept the fact that LePage has no concept of proper behavior. I've come to no longer expect any semblance of intelligence from the man. What I don't appreciate is when he takes his "Looney Tune Show" on the road. It's like visiting a very prim and proper relative with a three year old in tow. You just know that by the end of the night, you won't be able to show your face in public again.
He would rather have businesses pay the penalty, instead of participating in "ACA" because it's cheaper and it will cause "ACA" to fail. At least we can be sure that we know where Lepage stands on helping those without health care. Again, he puts business and employer's first, It would obviously benefit the business to pay the ridiculously small penalty, rather than insure their workers. Our Governor endorses this idea, at the same time he is denying health care, and assistance to those who need it the most.
I'm not even going to touch his "Breaking Wind" remarks, I'm assuming those were attempts at humor. If it's truly laughs he's looking for, all he needs is a detailed review of his tenure as Governor, that would cause the guest of honor at a funeral to crack a smile.................

Paul Lepage

He is an embarrasment to our state, his term can't end soon enough!

LePage invites Mainers to break wind together

At an event in DC, no less. Please make it stop. It's a simple rule people. Do not let him speak into a microphone!

When have any Repub ever get it Right?

Gov LePage: “This President is going to ruin the American dream as we know it.”

Remember when 40 hour work weeks and weekends were going to kill the economy per repubs or min wages (now 50% of what they were in 1965, inflation adjusted). Or child labor laws.

Remember when repubs said tripling wages by FORD would kill the economy.

Remember when passing worker safety laws were going to kill the economy per repubs or overtime would?

Remember when repubs were against the GI bill after WW2 calling it a dole.

Remember when repubs were against CAFE standards saying that would kill the country....or emission standards.

Except we ended up with fuel injection , twice the mileage, faster more reliable vehicles..

Remember when repubs were against IKE’s (yes their own president) interstate highways system, the largest public works project in the history of the world..

Remember when they were against soc sec and Medicare...

Remember when they said austerity would fix the 1929 Depression or the 2008 depression.

Remember when they said we could not save the auto industry....

Remember when they said the Clinton Tax increase would kill the economy.

Remember when they said the Reagan and Bush tax cuts would pay for themselves.

Remember when they said the Iraq war would pay for itself and only last 2 months...

Remember when they said the Bush tax cuts would create 24 million jobs, missed by 25 million...

Have they ever been right?
