56. Have to agree

at least when we had Jesse the Body it was entertaining watching him and the media jackals.

Pawlenty was slimy and boring. The best thing he did was have delusions of grandeur; that kept him out of state and limited the harm he could do.

I knew in MN until Governor Dayton was elected. Gawdawful, Pawlenty was, too, and good riddance to him.

He screwed up everything: created a regressive tax system, decimated the public schools, and ran up huge debts he hid with accounting trips. That and the fact he disbanded the state legislature and created the state budget entirely by himself.

58. Corbett:lowest approval rating ever recorded for any PA Governor

The guru of political pollsters in Pennsylvania is professor Terry Madonna, who reported earlier this month:
Governor Corbett’s job approval ratings hit some record lows in a new poll released today by Franklin and Marshall College.

According to poll director Terry Madonna, just 26-percent of those surveyed say Governor Corbett is doing an “excellent” or “good” job.

This is the lowest job performance for a Pennsylvania governor, including Ridge and Rendell – – that the Franklin and Marshall College Poll has recorded.

Here in Massachusetts the way most things got done was: The legislature would pass something sensible, he would veto it, and then the legislature would override his veto. This happened regularly. The only worthwhile thing was health care.

All of NJ's modern financial problems can be traced back to her. She set precedent when it came to having your hand in the cookie jar when it came to the state's pension fund.

And I'm still wondering if a Republican not named Christie can win statewide or not.

Nor did I care about politics then (I was a teenager)

But she was the catalyst on the path to downward destruction that the state's been on since. There's a car in a neighboring town that has a sticker that says "One Christie was enough."

Easley and Perdue were corrupt for sure, but McCrory is taking corruption to a new level with the personal investments he has in companies he has the power to make policies towards . Not to mention that he's going after the most ridiculous cuts, such as liberal arts programs. Since he has a deep red legislature, we're almost definitely going to see the typical Republican BS laws coming in, such as extreme abortion restrictions, voter ID garbage, and the like. It's such a shame that just a few years after Jim Hunt, the title of "Governor of North Carolina" has become so desecrated.

14. I'm in NY they all seem alike.....

The best one was the first one......no one beats him as the longest serving. Lately they play shell games with the assembly & senate over taxes and still stick to the taxpayers. We could actually extricate ourselves from budget woes by renewing the old stock transfer tax & hitting those that owe billions to the treasury. They play one fears that Wall St. will pack up and leave. Mostly they pander to the 5 counties south of Westchester and only remember the rest come election time.

I don't want to give any impression that Walker isn't horrific,

Rusk called in the National Guard and on his orders (sometimes said to have been 'misinterpreted), striking steel workers were shot and killed during the May Day labor riots of 1886.

147. See, I think you could interchange the idiots

and have the same result.

Matt was worse in office but John made us a laughingstock years later.

24. Rick Perry in Texas

My son told me about a husband/wife team: Ma & Pa Ferguson.

Pa was impeached.
Then Ma ran and was elected.
Ran on the slogan: "two governors for the price of one."

(Ma & Pa were early 1920s)

105. W. Screwed up the property taxes, though.

The average homeowner saw about a $60-70 annual reduction in property but the cumulative affect was horrendous. He might run close to PRick erry as worst.

29. AZ - Brewer's awful, but she's not a criminal - yet

Gotta go with Symington. Although Mecham was pretty awful too.

156. Symington was definitely a criminal

but damn he was a nice guy and was no where near as stupid and evil as Brewer.

So you know how bad I think Brewer is if I am willing to give a pass to a crook like Symington.

30. Not technically a governor, but probably Marion Barry

I understand the valuable things he's done, but on the whole he has been a liability.

pick any Republican Governor, they're all horrible. The current idiot, Governor Ultrasound, is probably one of the worst of the worst.

34. A clear tossup between the current and a recent entry.



Governor McFraudy

or




Governor John E. Bush


Bonus points go to the long time de facto governor of Florida, NRA chief lobbyist Marion Hammer:

46. The man's looks are actually the least scary thing about him, believe it or not.

I just like how he's always been compared to a multitude of nerafrious fantasy characters: Voldemort, Batboy, Skelator, etc.

My personal favorite, however, has to be the dude from the House of Undying on Game of Thrones:

186. He probably is worse, but I dislike Jeb even more.

The difference was that even most Republicans are ashamed of Scott. So they aren't constantly pumping him up like they do some of their "heroes." And that's the most frustrating thing--when people think their naked emperor has beautiful clothes.

Whereas with Jeb, Republicans acted like he was some great governor who was indispensible for the state. They called him the "Education Governor" when all he did was advocate for the destruction of the public school system. He bragged in his inaugural address that he wanted nothing more than to have all the government buildings around him empty, meaning he wanted to privatize, privatize, privatize.

And he was corrupt. And should have been impeached, or imprisoned for this disgusting little incident:

Newspapers: Donations poured in to GOP after factory decision

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Representatives of a company that sought permission to build a cement plant in north Florida gave more than $180,000 to the Republican Party after Gov. Jeb Bush and the Cabinet approved the deal, two newspapers reported Saturday.

****

Approval of the project marked a reversal for Bush, who paddled down the pristine stream in June 1999 with his environmental secretary, David Struhs, and said he would oppose the permit.

*****

Campaign finance records reveal that within two days of the deal's completion on June 29, 2000, $140,000 in contributions from some executives and family members went to the party. Another $43,000 was donated later in the year.

Of the contributions, $40,000 went to the Republican National Committee to help George W. Bush's campaign. Other large contributions went to the state Republican Party, or to an account the state party uses when it spends money to benefit candidates for federal offices.
