Is Chief Buie stupid or something? How could he not know the cost was less than half of what he told the commissioners? We really should replace the entire incompetent bunch.

"Is Chief Buie stupid or something?"

No, not at all. However, his ignorance runs deep and wide. Intentionally misleading is beyond his ability level so I'd comfortably chalk this one up to buffoonery.

Buie's one of Obama's boys. Makes it up as he goes along . Couldn't manage a lemonade stand and we have him running things because he offered to do the job for cheap.
