Yeah, I understand he might have been road hard and put away wet, but then again he did some other kinds of riding while in office, as his ex, or the cocktail waitress in Las Vegas he assaulted.

Now we face a new incoming governor who in the one debate I watched in the primary was nothing more than a younger flashier version of Gibbons. he almost entirely spoke the same song Gibbons did on every question, so what is going to change. Our paychecks and pensions and the ability to have a contract with our employers.

Good luck on our retirement and I am getting ready for further cuts in our state and less money to fund basic services.

It is miracle that guy is still in office. He will blown out in 2012 because Obama is in reelection year and Republicans are not going to win big in that election. The Republicans will probably lose 40 seats in house and pick up a seat in the senate.

It is neither Ensign Or Harry Reid's fault for what happened to Nevada. However, Reid should be blamed for not having a stronger financial reform package that would have done things like smash the investment banks into little pieces.
