GOP Secretary of State hopefuls tout endorsement from Kansas Republican leaders

April 26, 2010


— Two rivals for the Republican nomination for Kansas secretary of state are touting endorsements from former state party leaders.

Shawnee County Election Commissioner Elizabeth Ensley has the backing of eight former party chairmen and chairwomen.

They include Donald Schnacke, of Topeka, who served as GOP chairman in 1961 and 1962, and Kim Wells, of Kansas City, who was chairman from 1991 until 1994.

Ensley's opponents in the Aug. 2 primary are Kris Kobach, of Lake Quivira, and J.R. Claeys, of Salina.

Kobach served as state GOP chairman himself from 2007 to 2009. His campaign steering committee includes former chairmen David Miller and Steve Abrams, who served during the 1990s.

Vote for Elizabeth Ensley .... the only Secretary of State candidate who has run an election. Which is one of the top jobs of the Secretary of State?

Kris Kobach will spend much of his time checking out whether illegal aliens are voting ...... sounds like a Phil Kline

Take a close look at Kris Kobachs supporters in the article ..... David Miller, former state Republican Party Chairman, who decided to run against the sitting Republican Governor Bill Graves.

How can Kansas afford the republican mentality?

Think about it. In the past 30 years the repub party has been in involved two major home loan scandals that effectively took the USA economy down the tubes. One is too damn many but twice represents repub economic policy. Wreckanomics is a failed economic policy. In fact wreckanomics is beginning to smell like well planned crimes.

The republican party have become masters at putting millions upon millions upon millions of people out of work. AND stealing taxpayers retirement plans along the way.

What Repubs do with a remarkable degree of consistency is wreck the economy,initiate huge movements of shipping jobs abroad aka the Reagan-Bush Global Economy and try to wreck social security and medicare.

Is there a definite pattern? Absolutely!

  1. The Reagan/ Bush Home Loan Scandal

  2. The Bush/Cheney Home Loan Scandal

  3. What did Bush and Henry Paulson do with the bail out money?

  4. Why did GW Bush Lie About Social Security?( This would cost taxpayers $4 trillion and wreck the economy)

  5. Still A Bad Idea – Bush Tax Cuts

  6. The "tea parties" BTW are part of the wreckanomics program funded by the Koch Brothers... well known oil billionaires. These thinkers back a tax payers bill of rights which is another scheme to reward the upper 1% which is designed to wreck local and state governments.

All of the above displays reckless economic behavior that which drains the cookie jars.

What do Reagan,Bush and Bush republicans plan for 2010. Start the typical repub character assassination campaign which in essence is a massive cover-up scheme for the financial disasters that illustrate how the repubs are NOT the financial giants of our time.
