cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
Have we reached a tipping point so far as the candidacy of Herman Cain? Has the simple addition of complaints, one after the other, finally gotten to the point that he will have to abandon his campaign?
I have a feeling that we are very near the point where Mr. Cain will be forced to leave the race, and I am troubled by that. This reminds me of the old ‘water torture’ thing where the constant drip-drip-drip of water finally does the victim in and he or she cracks under the pressure. I’d like to think that none of these allegations is true, but the more that pile up at his doorstep, the more I find myself wondering. I like Cain, but even with that stated I have begun to have doubts about his continuing the race toward the White House.
Has the current leadership in Washington County gone a step too far with Chairman Tennies’ refusal to hear differing points of view in the budget debate?
Supervisor Bill Meyers has declared himself a candidate for re-election after having maintained for some time that he would not run again for personal reasons. His decision was prompted by Tennies’ position on proposed amendments and the process that Tennies has forced supervisors to follow in that effort.
Just today, former chairman Thomas Sackett has announced that he will again run for supervisor and said, “What I saw at the Budget meeting was sickening.” “What kind of an operation won’t even let Supervisors speak to their own amendments?”
There is the suggestion that we could see several more announcements in coming days that are prompted by the current climate in West Bend.
