Quitting You...

Read about this news on Radio Australia about "CNMI Governor to quit politics if he loses November election"

Ok. So if he lost this forthcoming election but didn't quit politics, where do you think he'll go? Does this mean he is conceding to defeat that early? This report, one can blindfoldedly guess was written by a reporter here on Saipan--throwing stories to the land downunder. The story is short though. Again, I'm guessing the reporter curtly asked the governor and got a brief remark from him. Read on...
Radio Australia--The Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Governor Benigno R. Fitial says he will retire from politics if he loses the election in November.
Pacnews reports the 63-year-old governor has no plans of seeking another office should he and his running mate Finance Secretary Eloy Inos fail to win.
Mr Inos, the chairman of the ruling Covenant Party, says he agreed to join Mr Fitial because he’s not afraid to make unpopular decisions for the benefit of the public.
Among these unpopular policies are the austerity holidays, which imposed pay cuts on some government employees, renting generators from the UK, and suing the US federal government over the federalisation law.

Buenas Noches! I'm a newbie blogger looking for friends. Will you friend me and visit my blog at www.mustbethehumility.blogspot.com and leave a friendly message? I look forward to friending you!

Fitial has a chance to win. Business still supports him, 400 new hires and their spouses will add votes, and many working for the CNMi will support status quo in this economy.

If the Republicans run one candidate, they will win, but if they splinter, Fitial will win.

ps Heinz and Arnold will win the Republican primary and they are odds on favorite for Gov & Lt..

actually, i hear that juan pan is the favorite right now

Juan Pan will probably lead in the polls because of good advertising, but I predict he will lose the election when voters, in the privacy of that booth jettison the hoopla and vote for the person most likely to help them and the CNMI get through the next 4 tough economic years. Of the candidates running so far, my pick would be Ben Fitial. Who knows who else might show up on the horizon.

Whoever wins is in for some hard political sledding and will take the usual crap from the Variety (which makes a living by being staunchly against whoever is in power).

Not a job I would want.

I STILL BELIEVE THAT BRAD RASULA IS A CLOSET QUEER. JUST WATCH HIS HANDS WHEN HE IS RUNNING; HE SWINGS HIS HANDS LIKE A TYPICAL QUEER.

But Brad has a girlfriend. How can he be a Closet Queer?

COMMON MAN, HAVEN'T YOU EVER HEARD OF A AC/DC QUEER? THE DUDE THAT LIKES PUSSY AND COCK. I REALLY BELIEVE THAT BRAD HAS HAD A COCK UP HIS ASS. MAYBE HE WAS A MOLESTOR DUDE. ONE NEVER KNOWS THE HISTORY OF THESE FOLKS.

my history is easy. just ask your mom ;)

I think it'll be Juan Pan and Heinz in a runoff. Too early to predict past that because people will be jumping on either one of those teams if their first choice candidate does not make the runoff.

Could Juan Pan have made a better choice for Looty Guv?

Could Heinz?

whats sexuality got to do with the topic?

hey anonymous, go and watch your porno and leave your senseless bickering to yourself...

Homophones are closet cases said...

Anonymous who speaks in caps is obsessed with Brad's sexual preference because he's sexually attracted to Brad, and secretly hopes he's queer or bi.

Anonymous, step up and take a walk on the wild side. What've you got to lose? You're probably not getting any action, anyway.

I think you may have meant to make reference to homophobes, there sport.

Good suggestion though.

Heinz and Ben each chose outstanding running mates. Juanpan and Kumoi, not so good.

The quality of who a Governor selects as Lieutenant Governor reflects both leadership/ management skills and degree of public support (thereby offering more viable choices).

Heinz and Ben have clearly improved on both scores from four years ago.

Juan Nekai Babauta chose well, too, but he is so widely known to have had such a corruption-ridden administration that his only hope of primary success rests on “spoiler” votes by supporters of Fitial and Juanpan.
