Former Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D, MT) wants us to ‘cozy up’ to Iran.

…NO.

His words, not mine. That first link is to the video: text below.

“What’s interesting is not that we are going to have a treaty with Iran, it’s going to tip the balance away from the Saudis and the Egyptians to the Persians, the enemies for the last 3,000 years to the Arabs,” he said, pointing out that he had lived in the Middle East for seven years. “Big changes are happening in the Middle East. If we cozy up to Iran, we are not going to need Saudis anymore. We will be energy independent.”

The bolding is mine; and I am just going to note here that if Gov. Schweitzer thinks that he can run for President on a platform of ‘cozying up’ to a regime that thinks Death to America and Death to Israel are perfectly normal and unobjectionable policy statements, then Gov. Schweitzer is free to try. And I’ll add this: rhetoric like that might work in a Democratic primary. It won’t fly in the general. (more…)

Brian Schweitzer cuts and runs from Montana Senate race.

Gotta wonder why.

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer won’t seek Montana’s open U.S. Senate seat in 2014, a blow to Democrats‘ hopes of holding the seat and preserving their overall Senate majority.

The popular Democrat, who left the governor’s office in 2013 after two terms, told the Associated Press that he “kicked the tires” on the race but decided he preferred Montana to Washington.

I’m being sarcastic, of course.  Because there’s probably a reason why nowhere in that LA Times article is this mentioned: (more…)

Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D, MT): having a polygamous family history is bad! …if you’re a Republican.

Via Hot Air comes this… I’m not sure what it is, besides pathetic.  Anyway, Brian Schweitzer is apparently reveling in the curious freedom of being term-limited as the (Democratic) Governor of Montana; he decided to give The Daily Beast an earful, and I’m not entirely certain that Schweitzer has realized yet just how badly he stepped in it.  Certainly badly enough that if he was hoping for a Senate gig in ’14, he should probably… stop hoping for that.

The Daily Beast contacted the office of Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer today to talk about whether his state would be in play in the 2012 presidential election. About a half hour later, the governor called back, and he had a lot to say. He didn’t think that Montana would be a swing state, but the Democrat did say that Mitt Romney could have issues nationally because his father was “born on a polygamy commune in Mexico.”
