Why It’s Pre­ma­ture To Rule Out Gov. Ige

MidWeek (Hawaii) - - Front Page - JUST THOUGHTS Bob Jones

At­tor­ney Gen­eral Doug Chin has been strut­ting like a pea­cock in public re­cently, but some are puz­zled about his ex­pen­di­ture of so much Trump’s Mid­dle East visa poli­cies, which are not a ma­jor lo­cal is­sue.

Con­gress­woman Colleen Hanabusa’s name al­ways comes up be­cause she’s am­bi­tious and con­nected to the es­tab­lish­ment.

The GOP is thread­bare. Con­ser­va­tive state Rep. Bob McDer­mott, the party’s only an­nounced can­di­date, is a laugher in this pro­gres­sive state.

My read is that all this talk that Ige is in trou­ble is the usual clap­trap that makes the so­cial me­dia rounds dur­ing any mod­ern- day gover­nor’s term.

Re­mem­ber t he Scott Walker dust- up i n Wis­con­sin? He took of­fice in 2011, sur­vived a re­call vote in 2012, was hated by all the unions but re­elected in 2014, and was de­feated in his bid for a pres­i­den­tial nom­i­na­tion. And he’s still the gover­nor.

Dumbest bill ever by our pedes­tri­ans caught look­ing at a mo­bile de­vice while cross­ing a street.

What — we’ll de­tail cops to street cor­ners to nab of­fend­ers?

Show me t he ac­ci­dent rate caused by this be­hav­ior. over­reach by l aw­mak­ers with good but mis­guided in­ten­tions.

There’s no ex­cuse for a driver to hit a pedes­trian in a cross­walk — a tex­ting one or any other one. And never pass a law that you know is damn near im­pos­si­ble for the po­lice to en­force.

Gov. David Ige, who is up for re-elec­tion next year, meets with Ja­pan-Amer­ica So­ci­ety of Hawai‘i young am­bas­sadors to the Asian-Pa­cific Chil­dren’s Con­ven­tion that was held in Fukuoka, Ja­pan. Pic­tured with Ige are (from left) Kyler Shigemi, Ryan Handa, Taryn Kimura and Yuuka Brown.
