Case calls Inouye's remarks incorrect - Hawaii News

Former U.S. Rep. Ed Case is defending himself against comments by U.S. Sen. Dan Inouye that Case misled the congressional delegation about his intentions in 2006, when he opted to forgo re-election for a race against fellow Democrat U.S. Sen. Full Story

Here's what happened in case you forgot:

Uncle Dan ORDERED Case not to run against Akaka, just like he told Harris not to run for Governor that year.

When Case ran in the primary against Akaka, Inouye got on the offensive against Case. He ORDERED the Dems to block Case. Do your remember Inouye's TV ads against Case? Do you remember when Inouye got the Illinois senator to appear in a Hawaii TV spot to back stab a fellow Punahoe graduate?

Inouye is a thug and so is that crooked guy from Illinois who assisted him on slamming Case.

So Akaka ended up winning, but he hasn't done anything since because he is too old and can't hold a conversation without wandering off.

This burns my okole.

Now, really, folks.

Can you really believe either one of them?

Inouye is trying to invent a fake Indian tribe, using senile Akaka.

An elaborate, not quite eloquent, total fabrication comprised of an intellectual dishonesty that equals OHA itself, this Akaka tribe envisioned by Inouye is as bogus as a pair of artificially enhanced and mechanically inflated, mammalian protruberences.

But, that's Inouye.

Meanwhile, this head Case guy not only looks phoney, Case also joins in Inouye's dishonest effort to pull a magical "Indian tribe" out of thin air, and Case actually supports passage of this Akaka bill too!

Slime versus Slime. Dog eat Dog.

Survival of the Unfittest.

Since Statehood, Hawaii's downward spiral from that time was propelled by a one party domination and control of the Hawaii Democrats.

That, in turn, results in this side show of two despicable political characters trying to convince us one of them is telling the truth.

I propose a third option: They are both lying.

But the larger looming question for the thinking voters really is: Who the f cares?

Inouye must have forgotten to take his Nemenda and Aricept during those conversations he had with Case.
This Old Boy (D)onkeycrat needs to step aside and let the younger generation take over. We don't want to let the (D)onkeycrat let Hawaii electorte to vote a dead person like they did when Mink was in her deathbed. We need fresh ideas and independent mind thinkers like case. We don't want another rubber stamp of the old ways. Hanabusa's nose is turning browner every minute. When will Hawaii people get it that it is these (D)onkeycrats, who fought against the lunas in the 1950's, have become who they fought against.

Both Inouye and Akaka need to step aside. We don't want to have the (D)onkey fooled us again like they did with Mink. That lady was dead and they kept her name in the ballot. Then we had to spend millions for a special elections. These self serving, ego driven dinasaurs need to go.

On the 1920s, AJAs were nearly 40% of the population.

Now they are closer to 13%.

Times are changing.

I'm going to love watching the death of the Plantation Asian Democrats over the next decade.

If the republicans weren't so pathetic, they would have already become a viable alternative.

It's time for Akaka and Inouye to RETIRE. The two have already past their years of service they need to step aside.

I too relish the slow, decaying demise of the one party domination that has ruled Hawaii with an Union Iron Fist since Statehood.

Your facts and figures add enjoyment, even glee, that would have Jesse Jackson himself telling us to "Keep Hope Alive!"

Truly indeed, is this time a historical one, as we get to witness the "out with the old" and "in with the real," right before our very eyes.

But, there is the sycophant factor, of non-AJA's like Waihee and Akaka, and the rest just like him, that grafted themselves into the Hawaii Democrat Apparatus, going so far as to even marry into the once dominant race just so that they can "fit in."

The sycophant factor is one that will have a lingering effect long after the dissipation of the AJA stuff you refer to, because essentially they will assume the identity and party line once fronted by the AJA's themselves.

Maybe.

Case has bigger bones in his closet than running out on his prior Congressional job the way Sarah Palin ran from her Governor job. :)

what a two-face senator we have.

When will Hawaii open their eyes to the poilitcal games Inouye has created.

When will the good people of this state
see through him.

Hawaii does not need to suffer at the hands of this political godfather.

He hides his wrongdoings behind federal funds.

Shame on him. Shame on Hawaii for not recognizing this.

Dan has enjoyed a successful career in the senate but the last few years have started to tarnish his image. Now known as the "King of Pork" he is starting to get into the politics of filling Neil's position, an area he is not qualified in. Best thing Dan could do is just stay back, keep his mouth shut and let the people work this issue. Dan, you have got to know your limitations, this is one area. Preserve what is left of your career and sit this one out. Fail and your reputation will suffer. Do what is right for the Nei, butt out!

Dan #1 has spoken... Dan #2 has nodded in agreement. This is why we should vote for Hanabusa? Dan #1 has misjudged the intelligence of the general public... Dan #2 doesn't give a rip one way or the other... and Hanabusa is hoping to gain public support from Dan's endorsement. What a sad state of affairs. Case by far is the better choice.

Ed Case is a Republican who is a Democrat in disguise. He should reveal his true colors and run as a GOPer. He would be the most conservative Democrat representing Hawaii in Congress if he won the race. As a Democrat, I will vote for Hanabusa.

Tell the truth, Ed. Only days before your signs and banners magically appeared, you were out telling many of us that you were not running against Danny Akaka. We know it, and you know it. Your word is no good in this town. Stop whining when people tell the truth about you.

Idiots like you have been predicting this for decades. "Plantation Asian Democrats" is a racially tinged phrase used by those like you who resent the changes which have made Hawaii a better place. We have elected governors who are Japanese, Hawaiian and Filipino. Even a haole has been elected. AJAs are not the only "Plantation Asian Democrats" Racists like you are disgusting.
