Chen a possible run for lt. gov


Rep. Harry Chen is said to be off hiking somewhere in the final stages of contemplating a run for lieutenant governor.


Chen is an emergency room doctor at Rutland Regional Medical Center who has been in the Legislature since 2003. He was vice chairman of the House Health Care Committee this past biennium. He's the one who reported the Catamount Health Plan bill on the House floor a few years ago, unflappably withstanding lengthy inquiry.


He certainly does not have the name recognition that incumbent Brian Dubie has, he'd offer a more viable candidacy than many expected the Democratic Party would come up with.


Why so many doctors think lt. gov. is the place to be is unclear (Deb Richter thought about it, then thought better of it. Howard Dean did it.).

Terri, Harry Chen may not have the name recognition of the immortal brian dubie, but he also doesn't have the reputation of job hunting everywhere but Vermont on the Vermont Taxpayer's Dime and unethically and illegally using Nonpartisan National Guard Concerts/Functions as partisan opportunities for enriching the political campaign coffers of the immortal brian dubie that comes with said name recognition.

Based on all accounts and available evidence, unlike Dubie, Chen is a qualified, competent man of integrity who would do a good job representing the people of Vermont as Lite Gov.

Additionally, unlike Dubie, he isn't scum.

What's not to like?
 
Just like Symington it's a way of bowing out.
 
Bowing out of what, little nameless-nitwit fella?
 
Symington is getting herself positioned for 2010
 
Dr. Harry Chen would make a great Lt. Gov. I hope he goes for it!
 
Harry Chen is one of the most talented legislators in Vermont. Plus his wife is a fantastic political organizer! Go Harry.

Based on what, little nameless-nitwit fella? She's running now. Why would she be positioning herself for 2010 when she's running now and what is the factual foundation of your assertion?
 
Come on, won't someone argue with JWCoop? Bunch of nameless twit fellas! He's got so much to give!
 
Too bad such is not the case with your ignorant, anonymous ass, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Always a pleasure.
Dismissed.
 
See he did get someone to argue with him!
 
Gee, too bad you clowns can't come with an ignorant, ill-informed, nitwit with a name, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Of course, case and a clue wouldn't kill ya either, but ignorant trash with a name would be a step in the right direction.

Always a pleasure.
Dismissed.
 
Say something else, JWcoop. We like to hear you talk. Pleeeeeze. We hand on your every word.

signed,
nameless nitwit fella. *hugs*

You "hand" on every word", eh?

Lord, I must be livin' right to have enemies this fookin' stupid.

Oy, what a farcockteh, meshuggah schmuck.

Not only do you remain dumb, scum with bupkis, but your ignorant, anonymous ass still can't even make another one of its pathetic attempts to diss me without cheneyin' it up, schmuck.

Gai tren zich.

Always a pleasure.
Dismissed.
 
You are so cool. No, really all the guys at the ice cream store must really want to hang with you.
 
Scoop shops and gop-slop from ignorant, ill-informed, lyin'-slime, anonymous trash with bupkis.

Gee, what are the odds.

Always a pleasure.
Dismissed.
 
"Scoop Shops".... I love it when you speak trade-talk. Do you have any other cool words that you use behind the counter at Ben and Jerry's?
 
Henry Chen reports today he is sleeping much better these days now that JWCoop has endorsed his potential run for Lt. Gov. by saying "...unlike Dubie, he isn't scum."

Chen goes on to suggest he needs to locate this Coop character because every viable campaign needs an eloquent spokesperson.

And, once again, your ignorant, anonymous ass goes on to show beyond a shadow of a doubt that you're dumb, you're scum and ya got bupkis.

Thanks for clearin' that up, little factually-challenged, nameless-nitwit fella.

Always a pleasure.
Dismissed.

In other words, you intend to be ignorant trash with bupkis in the next life, too.

Thanks for clearin' that up.

Dismissed.
 
Wow. How clever...cut and paste, cut and paste, cut and paste.

You have all the zingers.

Hey, it's got ya this far, little factually-challenged fella. Still, it wouldn't kill ya to get some new lies to cut and paste.

"You have all the zingers."

And your ignorant anonymous ass has clearly cornered the market on bupkis, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Always a pleasure.
Dismissed.
 
Very witty Coopy.
