Brownback talks economy, jobs and Big 12 realignment

By Scott Rothschild · September 9, 2011 · Comment on this

Gov. Sam Brownback on Friday says the Kansas economy is improving, criticizes President Barack Obama's jobs plan, that the Big 12 needs to expand and Kansas University and Kansas State University should stay in the same conference. He said Big 12 fans shouldn't have to travel to the east or west coasts to see their teams play.

Television news reported this morning:

  1. The Chicago Tribune editorial board has called for Obama to not pursue re-election and let someone who is electable be the Democrat's candidate, and

  2. Obama was an investor in one of the solar companies he gave $million/$billions of taxpayer money to.

Is any of this true?

The Republicans would have let GM fail, then how high would the unemployment rate be? I guess then they would have had a lot of Americans to mow their yards, instead of having to hire illegals. Bummer for them. Get it through your heads people! The only reason companies aren't hiring is because people aren't buying their products, not because they have to pay taxes. Instead of putting so much money into buying politicians, why don't they hire more people, who will then buy their products? To the Republicans and their puppet masters, it's not about jobs at all.

Brownback doesn't want to improve life for the working class in Kansas or anywhere for that matter. He wants to destroy the working class in his quest for Christian domination (his and the Koch's domination that is, which is what Jesus wants). Anybody that believes any of what he does is for the benefit of anybody except them that brought him hasn't been paying attention.

Brown backs comments are most certainly a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Brown back is a total loser in all ways.

This state is full of agricultural wellfare cases.

Brownback spends too much time accomplishing nothing of substance. Between supporting Karl Rove,Grover Norquist,the Waltons and Koch brothers Brownback is actually nothing for Kansas. He is doing exactly what he did while in the beltway.

rockchalk: Do you ever look in the mirror as you type in your drivel. Most of the economic mess is a direct result of cutting taxes back in early Dubya and conducting two dubious wars without appropriating additional funding. I think it is interesting that 43 has remained quite since his departure; my feeling he in his infinite wisdom has realized some of the mess he is credited with. My guess, he was led down the primrose path by the likes of Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rice, Tenent, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, Bartlett and the Neocons. Too bad he did not operate as effectively as when he Gov. of Tejas.

state revenues are outpacing estimates and have done so for about four months now. No one can tell me Brownie had a thing to do with that...in fact what is the deal with jobs when all these Repubs say big government needs to get out of our lives and leave business alone and free market will correct all ills? Then bitch because "government" didn't ceate jobs? Because the only way they can create jobs is to go to war and raise taxes....Kansas needs to fire Brownback and all his cronies. then lets get a solid reasonable person to admin our state that is not based in some fake ass religious ethic and be so beholden to the man that bought his spot...please...Give me an empirical reason type over the evangilical liar anyday.

If Brownback is satisfied with the economic situation in Kansas we finally have a way to get rid of the backslapper. He is certifiable. Taking credit for any improvement while sapping the blood from the economic corpse is all Brownback has done. If he cared about Kansas working families more than he hated Obama, we would be better off in Kansas. While we can point at what jobs Brownback has slashed, there is not one job created by his policies, except volunteer jobs in soup kitchens. The foreclosure and bankruptcy rates have increased under Brownback.

rockchalk1977: We finally have a replacement for the sage of Linwood Tom Shewmon aka "Nancy boy to you". Whatever the post, it all comes back to blaming Pres. Obama, regardless the issue. Too bad you were not so critical of the 8 prior years of Dubya and Darth and the crap pile they left. BTW, your comment about election consequences was last evidenced by Bush 41.

Well....that probably did it! Brownie saying KU and K-State should stay together and stay in the Big 12? Hmmmm....Now how is that goin to get him elected to a "higher" post? I think I hear the word jinx?

B-b-b-b-b-b-Back in Brownbackistan!; how could he in his closemindedness give any credit to the President or credence to anything that he cannot comprehend. BTW, I'm not sure we should be tied to K-State; sick of them trying to demean K.U. at every chance! I'm sure the road runs in the other direction as well. Maybe just need to get some new friends with which we are more academically aligned and put the state triviality behind us. Hope we don't get caught hanging around the Big-12 for another year or two, only to go through this realignment crap down the road.

Of course Sam is critical of BRock. Of course BRock has an idea..a plan so to speak. Sam had the road map for Kansas that has so far proved to be nothing more than campaign rhetoric. And yes, the economy of Kansas has improved as of late but Sammy and the Ilk had nothing to do with that. Watching that video just reinforces in me that our goverbnor is nothing but a condescending, self serving, pesudo elitetist, faux snob. Barack spoke with passion. Passion for people and for our country. Sam sounds like a recording on an answering machine.
