Abercrombie should not be considered for any political office. He should instead retire into the sunset.

Abercrombie should not be taking anymore space in our political affairs.

Gather about one dozen coqui frogs and wash them thoroughly with a garden hose. That activates the coqui frogs so they empty their intestines. Keep the frogs in a container for three days and on the third day repeat the procedure one more time.(Note: you can add dry dill within the first two days to give them a really nice flavor). If they are very dirty, it may be necessary to wash them one at a time. Then let them dry for three more days and on the last day put the coqui frogs in into one half gallon of water then add a little garlic, parsley, white wine and sea salt. Put coqui frogs into a sauce pan and place on the stove then cook for 3 minutes at low heat. Once done place into the oven for a few more minutes and then when finished top with parsley.

The coqui frogs are just out of this world with a little Japanese wine and white sushi rice.

So why is there no coverage about the Andy Martin case that seeks access to Barack Obama's vault copy of his birth certificate? What about the Alan Keyes lawsuit in Californina? One would think this news organization would be interested in if their "native son" is really from Hawaii. The fact that he has refused to confirm that raises questions about his eligibility to be POTUS.

Thankyou Rachel for all your help with this issue. This with feral cats are the most threatening concerns to our indigenous wildlife which is under a constant threat. Just for the record as a former resident of Hilo I can tell you that the beautiful area of Pueo has been ruined forever along with most of Hilo by these frogs. Also on another note these pests were introduced to the Big Island by Walmart where the first infestation started - for that reason alone people should boycott Walmart and demand the company pay for the cost to erradicate this horrible pest!

Get a life. All of this crap about Obama reminds me of the anti-catholic paranoia when JFK was running for president. The proported experts were fanning the flame of how dare you vote for a catholic. Get over it and lets move the country forward. Barrak is neither black or white. He is simply the hope for the future.

Abercrombie's move confirms what all in D.C. calls him ... the clown! Rest assured there is no leadership roll for Abercrombie in the Democratic controlled House. The good thing about leaving him in D.C. is he does less damage to Hawaii because he has to follow the Senior Senators. Heaven forbid if he returns to Hawaii.

The coqui froggy problem? Very simple solution - so simple even the Geiko gecko gets it: Snakes simply love frogs. How about importing some Guamanian brown tree snakes? If the snakes propagate too prolifically after dining on their croaking delicacies, we can import a few mongooses, which will not only ice the snakes, but will capably handle small domestic pets and sundry rodents.

Neil has zippo admin experience beyond his office staff of 15 or so. hes a good campaigner, but I fear he won't be a good administrator. And the next gov. will still be dealing with the recession, so its important for them to have experience at some level...

I'm embarrassed that Abercrombie represents Hawaii.

He says one thing and does another. I don't trust him at all.

Hope maybe, but where's the change he promised? He's bringing back all the boys and girls from the Clinton Admin. Yikes!

"Does Abercrombie really want to be gov?" To Noel Jacob Kent
Have you ever been to a function and heard Abercrombie speak? He is so much for Hawaii. I was flabbergasted with your comment "But Abercrombie, who has been living away from Hawaii for years and has little, if any, experience as an administrator, now decides he wants to be governor of a state in real crisis." He has done a lot for Hawaii and for our shipyard, do you even know what is going on?????

Noel had good poitns though. Being mayor is very different from being a Congressman.

Why is everyone talking about Abercrombie when it's clear that Fitch is the one who's really responsible???

Noel is a very good professor. He is a marxist in methodology and really a brilliant man. He is always so perceptive.
