Citing unfinished work, Angus King launches re-election bid for U.S. Senate

King’s banners, signs and bumper stickers read simply “Angus – Independent for U.S. Senate” and his address was a mix of policy priorities, light-hearted anecdotes and quotes from Abraham Lincoln.................He has been pretending to be something he is not for so long that he has lost touch with the needs of Maine people. Angus King is no independent – not even close. He plays an independent in election year sound bites and TV ads, but still votes like an elite California liberal in the Senate.”.....................

The same guy who scammed the Record Hill wind project.  The guy I debated spontaneously in Freeport, disrupting an Angus lovefest.  The guy who stated that climate change is going to raise sea levels so much that Sand Hill in Augusta will be beachfront property.  A slick talking snake oil salesman!  He has the biggest ego in the state of Maine and will never retire!  My response to another 6 year term:

Angus King gets a $102 million DOE loan guarantee enabling his project to go forward; he claims breakthrough technology to secure this gift even though it isn't; Congresswoman Chellie Pingree writes a letter recommending they give him the loan guarantee.

King has a long personal history of playing to his liberal elite southern Maine base and TOTALLY SCREWING NORTHERN MAINE FOR HIS PERSONAL GAIN!

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.”

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
