After watching his press conference in Ferguson, the first I'd seen of him, it was clear in short that he is an idiot. Declare a state of emergency but a curfew latter. Call out the national guard but don't deploy them any where near the problem areas. Hold press conference but don't answer the phone from the mayor as his city burns. The Lt. Gov. went after him . More for entertainment. Dig a little there is a lot more just on Nixon's stupidity in Ferguson with out getting into the rest of it.
That progressive idiocy is expected. That he got reelected is inferring given that we know now he would hand concealed carry permit holder information over to the feds.Don't know what happened to the original story so will start with this.
"Kinder accused the Missouri Department of Revenue of working with the Department of Homeland Security to install new hardware and software to obtain data on Missouri citizens and transfer this information to DHS and unnamed third parties."This all started with a guy in southern MO wonder why the DMV needed his concealed carry info and it spiraling from there.
"He's given statements about the lack of a 'magical database' and that this stuff isn't going anywhere," Oliver says of Nixon. "I don't believe that the governor would make this public statement with that unequivocal of terms without having been briefed by the major players involved."Mo lawmakers takes first step to impeach Nixon. Then dropped impeachment.
Nixon's Dem backing may be fading.
"State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, on Wednesday afternoon introduced a six-page remonstrance urging fellow Democrat Jay Nixon to resign from the governor’s office “immediately” — or face impeachment by the Missouri House."and
"Chappelle-Nadal said the governor’s failure to deploy National Guard troops as he promised allowed some demonstrators to destroy businesses and other buildings in Ferguson and Dellwood."On Cuba (saw it else ware too)
"Nixon said he wants Missouri to be at the forefront of efforts to take advantage of the new policy--and to push it further, if possible. He argued that Missouri, as one of the most agriculturally diverse states in the county, is uniquely positioned to benefit from increased trade with Cuba."In short he is an idiot.
