Sarah Palin, the GOP hopeful in 2012, is lobbying Mitch McConnell, and other members of the Senate GOP delegation, this weekend for Alaska's share of the stimulus. Also, joining the ranks are Charlie Crist of Florida and Vermont governor, Jim Douglas.
Fence sitters include, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Haley Barbour of Mississippi, Mark Sanford of South Carolina, and Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota. I personally DON'T CARE who is going to be the GOP hopeful in 2012. If any of these governor's take a lick of this Pork Chop they should be removed from office and kicked to the curb.
Several states, regardless of political affiliation, are already junkies addicted to federal dollars. It is a sad day in hell when they can't survive without federal assistance. This malaise, lack of ingenuity, and fortitude that has infected corporate America is now spreading to state governments.
Admittedly, in the past I have touted the GOP group of governors as the future and lauded on about their potential, this is under serious review.
