by Peter Parker

Dateline:  Thursday, August 2nd 2012

Location:  Basalt, Colorado High School

The occasion:  Governor Mitt Romney invited 10 current Governor’s (and the ECT folks) to meet him in Basalt for a quick campaign stop in Colorado.  Click on the photo below to enlarge it!


Here are the exclusive ECT photos!

Who are the 10 Governors?  Left to Right – top photo!

Chris Christie – New Jersey
Nikki Randhawa –  South Carolina
Robert McDonnell –  Virginia
Bobby Jindal – Louisiana
Rick Perry  – Texas
Matt Mead –  Wyoming
Gary Herbert – Utah
Mary Fallin – Oklahoma
Suzana Martinez – New Mexico
Jan Brewer – Arizona

After their speeches….a very brief ECT interview was conducted with Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana on behalf of College Football Fans all across our great Nation.

ECT:  Gov. Jindal, will LSU make it to the NCAA College Football Championship again this year?

Gov. Jindal:  Absolutely!

Right after this…Texas Governor Rick Perry was asked next what he thought of Governor Jindal’s comments.

Gov. Perry:  You know “those boys in Louisiana know something about playing football!”

ECT:  Indeed they do, Governor Perry!…now what part of Texas do you buy those wonderful socks?


Funny Side Note:  Just like our own ‘Daily Fishwrap’ newspaper the Aspen Times newspaper is also part of the “Swift Family” of local/regional newspapers.


So, why is it that these “not-so-Swifties”  have trouble counting to 10?  The Aspen Times news story about Governor Romney’s visit to Basalt (Click Here) insists there were 11 Governors, not 10.
