Disappointment in Levesque Voters

Even with the article’s lack of specificity about Levesque’s meaning, this is a bit hard to take:

“In a way, I’m disappointed in everybody,” Sen. Charles J. Levesque, D-Portsmouth, said to Kai-Yan Lee, of the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston, who presented a series of graphs on foreclosures, but “quite frankly no real suggestion of where we go from here.”

Perusing the legislation that Levesque introduced or cosponsored in the last legislative session, it is clear that he’s comfortable with the urges to micromanage and restrict economic relationships, to dilute the job market with illegal immigrants, to grow state government, and to increase the barbs with which parasites may latch on to Rhode Island’s economy (as with binding arbitration).
Among the Rhode Islanders in whom Levesque should be most disappointed are the person he sees when he looks in the mirror and the voters who keep sending the likes of him to the State House.

Isn’t the purpose of that committee to turn the state around financially and basically be a steering committee? If he has no idea of where to go from here, then what’s he doing on the committee?
Chuck, please admit you’re just hanging around for the free sandwich, will ya?

In much of this country, corruption is for the rich. Rhode Island is simply more democratic about it.

Levesque is a blivet.That’s 500 lbs of excrement in a 300 lb sack.
He is without doubt the most arrogant and dismissive excuse for a person who “represents” the public in the whole General Assembly.
There are people I think are worse than him,but none as arrogant with nothing to back it up.

Mr Bernstein
The one thing Mr Levesque IS NOT is arrogant. Chuck is a great guy, yes he is a far left liberal. Just ask the Republican Senators what they think of him. All 4 of them call him a friend.
But I find ALL of your comments on Anchor Rising arrogant, insulting and RUDE

Welcome to Anchor Rising, Matt. You sure are making your presence felt.
What is rude about Joe’s statements?
Just because you don’t disagree and he might have given his honest opinion of one of your friends doesn’t necessarily make them “rude”.

Matt-nice to hear from you.I don’t give a tinker’s damn if you think I’m rude or anything else for that matter.You sound like a refugee from RI Future.
I think this is the first time I’ve been called arrogant,however.I’m not much into being courteous with people who sound like jerks-and I am blunt,no doubt about it,but arrogant to me means someone like Sheldon Whitehouse,who thinks they’re somehow ABOVE others.
If I ever was susceptible to such an idea I lost it as soon as I entered the military service,where you quickly find out you’re just another sh*tbird.
BTW I shouldn’t respond to personal attacks by anonymous posters,but what the hell,the Internet is crawling pseudonymous loudmouths.

I should explain my opinion of Levesque-it comes from watching his interaction with citizens testifying,including myself.
His demeaning and dismissive sneering attitude sucks.
I don’t care what kind of backrubs he gives to other Senators-they all mutually masturbate up in the Pirate Ship(okay-not ALL of them,but most)and I’ve seen him on the execrable ACLU show on public access.He thinks those who disagree with his pontifications are lower than whalesh*t.He’s in good company with Stevie”Nosepicker”Brown and “Dr.”Dan Weisman.

Indeed. None of which would promote or maintain one of the first lines of defense against foreclosures: good paying jobs in the private sector.
