It's no surprise the Arne would endorse Obama. Arne always was a RINO!

Arne Carlson is a self-promoting sap who dearly loves to have a camera and microphone in front of him. He has absolutley no credibility, yet the Dems think he's the greatest thing since sliced bread because he's endorsing their candidates. Can't you just see it? Arne wakes up in the morning...sticks his head out the door and then determines which way the winds blowing and heads in that direction. You're a tongue flapper, Arne. Stay home and read your books.

It's truly a breath of fresh air to hear Republicans like Arne Carlson and Colin Powell endorse Barack Obama. Both extreme liberals and conservatives are the most narrow-minded people I know. They only see things from one point of view and condemn, as anti-American, anybody with another view. While I have nothing against John McCain himself, I also believe Senator Obama has the potential to be a great President.

Now this is what I call smart, bipartisan, truth telling. Bachmann is an embarrassment to us all in this great state. Thank you governor Carlson for endorsing Obama and for talking with us as the intelligent, well rounded people that we are and look for in our leaders.

I love it when you Republicans denouce everything that Carlson says. You probably didn't have a problem voting for him back then. Where's your buddy Pawlenty. I don't see him giving up his weekends and nights anymore campaigning for McCain now that he is not the VP candidate. Ha, ha, think how crushed he was when a hockey mom from Alaska got the nod....ha, ha, ha....
