    I can’t believe this guy. He is, without a doubt, the absolute worst governor Oregon has ever had. He has broken promise after promise – especially concerning gambling. He will do anything to bring more money to Salem, but then does nothing right with that money. Our trooper situation is a perfect example.
    The only good thing I can say about this fool is that for the most part he has been so pathetically weak that he has not done that much damage. Unfortunately, he keeps on trying.

    Kulongoski’s behavior is down right bizarre. One moment he seems disconnected and out there, and then out fo the blue he will spring into a situation full force with a lot of oddly fit ideas (like the casino). His political philosophy aside, I think we have a governor who is grossly preoccupied with something else than governership.

  • Bad Republican

    I fully agree with the two above posts; Ted is truly pathetic. The sooner he is shown the door the better it will be for the entire state.
    I didn’t think we could get a Governor as useless as Babs Roberts; but I guess I was wrong.
    I find it amazing that during most of the past two legislative sessions he was all but invisible. Talk about a total lack of leadership!
    I am hoping and even praying that Ron Saxton wins in November, so we don’t see this pal of Oregon’s best known child rapist again.

    I think the State should file a Measure 37 claim for Crater Lake and put whatever the hell they want there.

      Unfortunately, perhaps, Ted has pulled well ahead in the polls the last couple of months. Unless Saxton starts performing better, he is going to get drenched.

  • I think it’s a good idea…that resort looks awesome!

    Kulongoski has stated privately that gambling is the answer to Oregon’s fiscal problems but will not go on the record with it.

  • Jerry

    Doesn’t Ted know that gambling is simply a tax on the poor/unwise?
    His constituents, by the way.

  • Anon-

    What poll are you seeing Saxton falling behind?

    There is only one poll that hans’t shown Saxton competitive and that poll was sponsored by a labor union. Everything else has Saxton and Kulongoski within the statistcal error margin of each other.

    For a sitting governor to be this close shows this to be an extremely close race.

      Dare, do a google on “kulongoski saxton poll”, maybe try “news”. The Zogby and Rasmussen polls consistently show Kulongoski ahead by an average of about 8 pts. I doubt that this is a tie within the statistical margin of error.

      It may tighten up especially depending on the debates. But I just don’t find Saxton terribly impressive as a speaker or politician. (Not Ted either, don’t get me wrong.) A strong candidate on either side could probably blow the other one out of the water. I liked Mannix, but I think his time has come and gone.

      e.g. try this:

      “Democratic Gov. Ted Kulongoski continues to hold a lead in the Oregon governor’s race over Republican challenger Ron Saxton, according to a new Zogby poll conducted for the Wall Street Journal Online.

      The Aug 29-Sept. 5 survey, conducted mostly over the internet, shows Kulongoski at 47 percent and Saxton at 40 percent. Constitution Party candidate Mary Starrett is at 4.5 percent.”

      There is a very recent Rasmussen poll with very similar results.
