this stage of our history in the first place. With social media, 24/7 cable news, the constant criticism, attacks, being under the microscope 24/7 knowing half the people are going to disapprove of you the moment you get elected and most of your supporters will leave you by the end. And then to put your spouse and children through it - thankless job, no thanks.
He's miserable

Getting richer and screwing people(you don't like) over is it's own reward.

Now planning on moving to Fairfield. This is a great part of the state if you have some money.

Anyway I was shocked to learn about how much of disgrace Malloy is. I'm not saying you need a republican to run the state but jeez get a competent person. How can you lose GE, possibly etna, hedge funds, 14k jobs.

I posted a Governor post today

that wasn't 1/10th as political as this one and it was deleted within seconds...I guess it matters what side of the fence you're on, or which side of the fence the moderator is on

"POLITICS", all caps, big letters.

I'm actually one of the BBIers who was in favor of continuing to allow political threads, but the one-sided nature of the censorship by the mods here is ridiculous. Either allow political threads or don't.
