    I made no secret that I did not support Deal in the primary. With that said, I am very pleasantly surprised how well he is doing as governor. He has taking on some very difficult issues from education, transportation……..And it is clear Nathan Deal has done a very good job trying to gain perspective from all sides to help solve the issue. And with any issue you cannot make everyone happy, but you must do what is best for the given situation, and Deal has done that well. I would definitely support Nathan Deal next time if he continues with his strong thoughtful leadership

    One of Deal’s big proposals for consolidation and savings is his proposal to take over 2,000 employees from the Labor Department and assign them elsewhere. Labor Commissioner Mark Butler must have been surprised by this move, as last month he announced that he was acquiring a 350,000 sq ft downtown office building from Forum Development Partners LLC for $42 million. Forum’s owners were all big contributors to Mark Butler’s campaign. Of course there was no RFP for the project. I imagine Mr. Butler may fight this raid on his agency in the upcoming session of the General Assembly.

    What???

    An elected official makes a thoughtful, coherent, sensible statement in excess of two minutes without a teleprompter? Must be an inside editing job!

    I agree with John. I have been pleasantly surprised with Governor Deal’s common-sense and organized approach to his job. If this continues, I will be forced to raise his grade above the “B” I currently have for him. Real ethics reform would likely land him an “A” if he can get it underway before the next election.

      Must be an inside editing job…..or some kind of sick joke, especially after the “leadership” that we’ve had at the State Capitol in the last dozen years or so as those types of sensible statements haven’t been seen around these parts in quite a while, probably since the days of the Zell Miller Administration.

      “I agree with John. I have been pleasantly surprised with Governor Deal’s common-sense and organized approach to his job.”

      This is no knock on Governor Deal as I agree that he is doing a fairly decent job as Governor, so far, but a zoo animal would look totally sensible and completely organized after the past twelve years of “King Roy” and “Sonny-Do” (more like, No, Sonny-DON’T).

      “If this continues, I will be forced to raise his grade above the “B” I currently have for him. Real ethics reform would likely land him an “A” if he can get it underway before the next election.”

      Now, don’t get completely carried away as we all know that “ethics” is pretty much a four-letter word down under the Gold Dome these days.
