In the 90s, Georgia had a King. This man ruled Georgia with an iron fist and a Democratic majority. Republicans united in 2002 and threw him into exile. Now, eight years later, the state is still faced with budget woes, education concerns, transportation and water problems, and a General Assembly that has been smacked with ethics problems. The King has returned from exile. He is sorry and wants our forgiveness. He is calling for a change from the status quo and claims that he is the one to solve Georgia’s problems once and for all.
Republicans in Georgia claim he cannot be trusted and have chosen Nathan Deal as their nominee. Make no mistake, this will be an uphill battle for Deal. And, currently, I don’t see it for Deal UNLESS he figures out how to solve Georgia’s issues and avoid the temptation of riding the wave of “anti-Obama”. I’m not an expert (have never claimed to be one), but I honestly think the Georgia GOP shot itself in the foot last night.
Will the King reclaim his throne in Georgia?
Call this the ramblings of a political greenhorn.
