FALLOUT: THE POLITICAL CAREER OF GOV. JAY NIXON WAS ALSO KILLED ON THE STREETS OF FERGUSON, MISSOURI!!!
More than anybody else . . . Except maybe the late Michael Brown . . . Ferguson, Missouri has been a total disaster for Gov. Jay Nixon.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY DEAD TREE MEDIA NEWSIES ARE GIVING HIM A PASS BUT IT'S CLEAR THAT GOV. JAY NIXON'S CAREER AND LEGACY WAS MASSACRED ON THE STREETS OF FERGUSON, MISSOURI!!!
In this instance, nobody should have a problem saying that he had it coming and more than deserves every political shot sent his way.
Before Ferguson, MO the Gov's greatest achievement had been getting out of the way of Red State revolt and watching the GOP bicker itself to death. The Gov. hasn't ever done anything much for Kansas City and his whole middle-of-the-road swagger to court rural Missouri always seemed kinda false.
The uprising in Ferguson, MO exposed the worst failings of the Gov.: He's weak-minded, indecisive, aloof . . . And again, incompetent. Could Gov. Jay have prevented the chaos? Probably not, but his reax certainly didn't help the situation and overall most political watchers kind of enjoyed the Gov. fold like a cheap suit amid pressure from mainstream media.
