    I was at this! I was at an event that was on the Rachel Maddow show! Pretty weird, and cool feeling to watching this again.

    It will go down in history as the day the Big Kochs went limp! It’s over for the fascists. They’ve been outed. The great spirit of the promise of America has reawakened, and boy is she pissed! We’re gonna DEMAND our due! And we’re gonna get it! And there ain’t a damned thing the kocks can do about it!

      You seem to advocate a lot of demanding, Larry. Are the enviromnmental rangers about to take up arms?

      • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers

        Arms? No. Momentum? Initiative? And effort? Oh HELL yes! Time for some push back. Time to level the playing field. Time for something you NEVER hear from the righties, JUSTICE! And fairness. That’s all. The scheming billionaires have been found out, and it’s not over yet. Folks are gonna start takin’ a look a history a little closer. The boomers were lulled into a sense of autopilot because they didn’t have to fight the battles our grandparents did. Well, now we do and yes we will. But arms? No. Will the Kocks form their private militia like Blackwater and Xe? Probably. After all, that’s what fascists do. And they are very much following their very own S. American model. ‘Course, I have predicted this for years.

    Man, our Governor ROCKS! Wish I could have been there. The humiliation and anger that has been sown by Tea Party Republicans has been properly addressed with this AMAZING display of contempt by a TRUE Montanan. Bravo Governor Schweitzer!

    If only the man wasn’t term limited. That said, it would be nice to see him run for Rehberg’s rep seat until he can take on “Sell out” Baucus.

    God Damn our Governor is awesome. I too wish I could have been there. This video is SO FUNNY. Keep it up Gov!!!!! We’re behind you!

    I adore Rachel and I’m thrilled Brian’s performance got her attention. Take that, teabaggers!

    We need Schweitzer for a 3rd term. Period. He’s the best politician we’ve had in my lifetime. I hope he runs for something else.

    One interesting note: there were about 1,000 people in attendance for this event which took place in the middle of a workday. Usually something like this might draw 250-300 max. and a lot of those would be staffers or Party folks.

    Much of what our Gov has done these past two years have sat very well with me, but this time he hit it out of the park.

    This session of our Legislature has been a zoo with many of the newly elected Tea Party Republicans feeling like they had a mandate simply because they won their election. Unfortunately they lost sight of just how our government is designed – it’s a system of checks and balances. When you get too far off to one side or the other, corrective measures may be the result.

    Say HELLO to the democratic system of government, folks.

    Aloha,

    As a native Montanan now in the islands, it is pleasing to see Gov. Schweitzer take on the childish Republicans and put them on notice. Hawaii has already repudiated the Republicans in the last election. There is only one Republican remaining in the Hawaii State Senate.
