And They Say I’m Not Ready to Be Governor?

Roy Brown, with his vast experience in Montana politics, today:

Brown says he is undecided about a proposed constitutional initiative that would define a person as “a human being at all stages of human development or life, including the state of fertilization.”

Brown also says he is undecided on a proposed ballot measure to extend health coverage to uninsured children. He says he would prefer to let the free market solve the insurance problem.

Two possible explanations, right? Either Roy really doesn’t know, which is a sad commentary on his readiness to govern, or he does know and he’s too political to give a real answer.

Governors lead, Senator Brown. They don’t pander or hesitate.

For the record, I absolutely oppose the former, and enthusiastically support the latter.

See how easy that is?

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
