In an email to Lennie Grimaldi's Only in Bridgeport and Tom Dudchek's CT Capitol Report, Shays used some uncharacteristically scatological language to describe the state's financial situation.
Hmm...Shays is using naughty language? Just who does he think he is...a blogger?!?
From Capitol Report:
'Betsi and I wrestled with the fact I would relish the challenge of leading our state; felt a moral obligation to step forward; and believed I could effectively move our state government in a different direction.Never mind what he and Betsi wrestled with, Shays doesn't mention anything new nor helpful, and his comments can simply be seen as his typical self-serving quest for attention. Everybody's gonna be all like, "Gee, he used a naughty word! This fella' must mean business!"
The fact is "the state is in deep shit." I say it that way because folks in Hartford (press included) and the public seem to have no clue how bad things are.
That thing about "the folks in Hartford and the public" not having a clue how bad things are is something of an insult. Apparently we're all saddled with the intellectual capacity of pre-schoolers, because we're simply too stupid to realize that there's a budget crisis going on!
Well thank god that Chris is here to fix everything! I'm sure he'll leap into the governor's race and run a great campaign and win and take care of that mess in Hartford:
That's a challenge I could have sunk my teeth in. But for the present I have a different role.Oh. Okay, fine. Well, thanks for all the help, Chris.
There goes a guy who really knows his shit!
