Then, he left office and turned into a rabid right-winger while we weren't looking. He moved his family to Florida, built a humongous mansion (nobody knows where he got the money for THAT) and started plotting and planning to run for President. That meant he had to "drink the Kool-aid," if he planned to run as a Republican, so the transformation began. First, he went on a health kick, losing a lot of weight, exercising and eating healthy. I guess he was tired of being called "Governor Double Wide."
When his plans didn't exactly work out, he started rubbing elbows with the folks at Fox, and they must have brainwashed him, or something, because he started criticizing women, which culminated a few days ago, in the ridiculous statements he made about women's reproductive rights. He sounded a whole lot like most of the Tea Party candidates, and some of the other old white men who populate the party, in that they just don't seem to understand the function of birth control pills.
I swear, to hear him, and an uncomfortable number of others in his party talk, he seems to think that a woman has to pop a birth control pill every time she plans to have S-E-X, because she can't "control her libido." WTF! Where is he getting his ideas? Can't Janet set him straight?
Somebody send him a book - maybe a picture book, like the ones grade schools used to use to explain reproduction.
