LePage walking back schoolboy taunts of Obama

Paul "toughguy" LeRage is now a teensy weensy bit embarrassed that he acted like a drunken lout when he told the President of the United States to "Go to hell" (let your bosom swell with pride, Maine!). He hopes to do a better job acting like a civilized adult when he meets President Obama at a Homeland Security conference along with other governors-elect.

Back in September, LePage had an emphatic response for fishermen who complained that federal regulations were threatening their livelihoods. “As your governor, you’re going to be seeing a lot of me on the front page, saying ‘Governor LePage tells Obama to go to hell,”’ he said to applause.

LePage said he regretted his earlier language, but he remains concerned about federal bureaucrats imposing rules and regulations that put people out of work.

Yes, Maine, this is the petulant child we've elected governor. A man who threatens to punch MPBN reporters. A man, who again, could barely read when he graduated high school. A confirmed tax cheat. As for all that "red tape" that chokes job creation...what exactly do you think LePage wants to do away with? Environmental protection laws? Check. But what else? OSHA safety regulations? The minimum wage? Child labor laws? Who knows...he's never EVER been specific about exactly what "red tape" he finds offensive. The man is all boorish, sour-breathed bluster.
