Another Loser

The State GOP it seems. Reading all the press accounts, the GOP comes across as petty, bumbling, naive, and internally vindictive.

My personal feeling is that this a failure of leadership from the Governor. He set a weak agenda and did not manage it, leaving the two guys flirting with 2010 to their own devices — those devices being throwing stars and knives they hurled at each other.

The GOP gets one more stab at this (pun intended) before it gets held accountable by the voters. It might want to spend the next eight months working together to come up with a real agenda instead of having the Speaker, the Lt. Gov., and the Governor fighting.

    I’m not sure the GOP in Georgia is a loser in all this. Remember, what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. In a way we have two party leaders (The Speaker and LG) who are trying to out do each other in being fiscal conservative.

    That to me is a good thing.

    Isn’t the separation of powers a beautiful thing? I think this is how it is supposed to happen. For six years, our Republican President and Republican Congress did nothing to slow each other’s spending down and the Republicans lost their jobs.

    Now we have a similar situation in GA (Executive and Legislative), and the brakes have been put on.

    Well done.

  3. Bull Moose says:

    Erick is right on target. This problem is largely due to an absence of leadership from the Governor. Though, he didn’t run for reelection on an ambitous agenda, so personally, no one should really be surprised.

  4. Holly says:

    I agree with Chris and Conservative. Richardson and Cagle both decided, in their own ways, to put the breaks on spending, so apparently some Republicans learned the lesson on November 2006. Too bad all of them didn’t. As Bill suggests, perhaps they were too busy fishing.
