More like circle jerk, just keep the (D) in office. And if you elect Neil the Hippy, God help you all

The only hope you have as a state is to get rid of anything with a (D) by the name.

Looks like things won't be getting better anytime soon. Wow, how sad but then again, it is understandable that for many years now, many of the future's brightest have picked themselves up, dusted themselves off and just made a move outside of Hawaii to look for their success.

The blind leading the blind....they should just play blindfolded musical chairs, might just land the most competent individual into the right seat, that is..of course if they include a couple of kindergarten kids to play with them.

I am sure i am going to vote for Hanabusa who will represent the people of Hawaii proudly.

She said it all when she said living in hawaii you have to expect to pay high taxes . It is the way it is.

We will get a great mind in office either way (governor or US Representative)because there is an unlimited amount of money to solve all problems we have in Hawaii

Be a sheep vote Hanabusa

The think the honorable thing for the do nothing and tax raising politicians would be to resign.

thats why I'm not voting for any old timers. period.

For non voters, sign up and vote for new crooks is the way to go. Better new ones than the same old bags.

Work hard for your money? Not union or blood money?

Yet vote for Abercrombie?????

You haven't seen nothing yet in terms of tax increases until you put Abercrombie in the Gov. chair. He will spend the state into bankruptcy.

For those who are moaning about the dearth of good candidates, I say, go for it.

Vote for Mufi. He will raise taxes and give kickbacks to all his supporters. He can sing and dance. He will drive the economy even further down so home prices will be cheaper and the cost of living will sky rocket.

The "boat" was a failure , so what? thats how the cho cho train will be and there will be cost over runs on the cho cho.

Hanabusa is controlled by developers at Ko'olina too. with her help they ripped off the taxpayers for millions in tax credits. very depressing to have such weak and corrupt field.

djou attacks Mufi on fiscal issues but spent thousands when on p.r. when nobody opposed him.

He also got huge contributions from 21Century Homes which he broke zoning laws to favor after they wined and dined him at the Halekulani and gave thousands to his campaign.

"I think the cute one ought to be governor...don't you?

Most girls think that he is cute, so more than likely he will win.

Being cute and all.You know?
Wait a minute, I've got to see something...

Duh...I can't read whether or not this stick says I'm pregnant".

I wish I could run for office, but, I don't qualify.

i'm not corrupt.
i'm not money hungry
i cannot lie, cheat and steal
i don't want to waste taxpayers money
i'm not a back stabber

Donald duck or mickey mouse would be better candidates than the bozo's we have today.

please rate my post , if you agree or disagree

for your support
