"Carl Wimmer is a good man, and I'm sorry this didn't work out for
him." Well, Peanut, apparantly the news media feels the same way. Why in the world this guy who is a loose cannon would be hired by
anybody now is a mystery to me. I can assure you, I wouldn't weant him
working for my company after he shows such a lack of judgement, or as he put it,
being "non-functional." These guys that have been lawmakers
(or a mayor) think the world revolves around them, don't they? Welcome to
reality; life among the commoners, not the privileged.
Well, Nevada's loss is Utah's loss.
Wow, there are a lot of smug, snarky comments on here. Carl Wimmer is a good
man, and I'm sorry this didn't work out for him. I hope to see him
involved again in Utah politics in the future. We need his wisdom; experience;
vision; and commitment to sound, limited government.
Wimmer, Winder, Burwash, Whitewash... Yeah, Peter Coyotl, I think you are onto
Wimmer should hire Richard Burwash as his press secretary.
cant they take him for something else it is so sad he was ever elcted for
anything in utah.
You mean he's not leaving?
Who "Called" the "Press" for a "Conference"?[let
me guess, Wimmer or Quintana]Carl Wimmer is all about Carl Wimmer,
and instead of having the media play Watch-Dog, they play Lap-Doggie jumping
everytime this guy whistles.Utah is ignoring this Carl Wimmer.The press keeps giving him a microphone and the spot-light.Why?
Put Nevada in he blue column.
There are really people who both "know" *and* "support" Carl
Wimmer? I thought the two terms were mutually exclusive when speaking about
This is hilarious. Trouble is, what the Utah GOP is doing to the people of Utah
is certainly not a laughing matter.
An informative news article, apparently written by a reporter who knows how to
investigate and write a good article. At least the paper has kept one reporter
who knows what she's doing.
As Yogi Berra once said..."This is dejawho, all over again"...I remember
vividly the 1988 State convention where the Pat Robertson disciples completely
routed and took over the Nevada GOP...The "Strip" immediately stop
writing checks, any Republican worth their salt, stop cutting checks. Within 8
months, the Nevada state GOP was broke and every Robertson accolyte was run out
of office...From what I hear, the Paulbearers have started out with
a broke party and it's all downhill from here.Wimmer, while
embarrassed should count his blessings...Think snakepit...
Carl Wimmer - a legend in his own mind.
A pity for all in Utah that Carl is staying.
It is an irresponsible person who announces that he has a job prior to receiving
a signed offer of employment.If Wimmer received such an offer, he
should announce it to the Press.If he did not, then he is entirely
and completely to blame for this fiasco, and is so clumsy and unprofessional as
to be worthy of the entire populations of the states of Utah and Nevada sending
him back to the fast food jobs for which he is better qualified.
I dont need to say a word,, Wimmer has taken the cake.
He was watching that episode from the office, where Pam creates a job position
for herself,and just goes around telling everyone she is the new office
manager.He figured, hey it worked for her, I will go to Nevada and tell
them I am the new GOP manager.
When I hear "We've got to take back our country" or "We've
got to take back our party," I wonder if the whole GOP is nonfunctional and
Nevada is just part of it. It's easy to sense there is a war going on
within the GOP but since they like to be behind closed doors, it's nice to
see a glimpse of what's really going on.
Blabbing to the media, Tweeting everything in negotiation, Facebooking everything in negotiation, Looks like Carl Wimmer
"Jumped the Gun", and announced it for all to see -- and now he is
blaming everyone but himself for the collapse in talks.Ironic, From someone who's only succesful bit of State Legislation was the
passing the Browning 1911 Handgun as the official State HandGun, and
flashing a holstered hand-gun on the floor of the State Legislation at the State
Carl may blame the nonfunctional Nevada GOP, but I blame his nonfunctional
This is just amazing. First the Nevada Repub's pick Sharon Angle and
thery're surprised when Harry Reid defeats her after her minister bashes
the mormons, who comprise a large share of the electorate in that State, plus
Harry is LDS to boot, then KSL and the Des News has a big huge news story and
radio air-time over the fact that Mr. Wimmer was "hired" and then
"no, he wasn't."So here's my question: Why is a
former legislator that lost the party primary, one who felt it necessary to pack
heat openly at the legislature, and has been turned out by Utah delegates really
news because he had a difficult situation landing a job in Nevada? How many
thousands of people in this economy have had trouble getting a new job, yet
there's no radio time for them to explain their woes? Gosh,
media, this is the biggest news since a KSL anchor retired, isn't it? (It
must be a sloooooow news month is all I can figure.)
I'm experiencing quite the bit of schadenfreude.
There's something wrong with a Republican Party that puts up the only
candidate that Harry Reid could beat in 2010. I think Romney can forget about
Nevada this November.
Here's the current headline in Las Vegas' newspaper: "Nevada GOP
blames 'nonfunctional' Carl Wimmer for his not getting job"And the fact that they refused to hire him tells me that the Nevada GOP
is at least somewhat functional...
The first question from the media in this case should always be "Did you
ever sign a contract to work for the Nevada state GOP?"
They're obviously not totally nonfunctional.
Maybe Wimmer should just realize the truth -- he was found unqualified for the
job. Congratulations to the Nevada GOP for having a clue.
It's so sad to see such a stand up politician get leveled because of his
need to see himself on TV. It's quite embarrasing I'm sure to pump
yourself up in the local press about how great you are and how Utah will be
missing out on you, and how wise the Nevada politicians are and they see what a
great asset you will be for them, and then to have it all crumble around you.
Must feel kind of ridiculous now eh Carl?
Carl Wimmer: Forgotten but no gone!
