Oh this is just too good to pass up . . .
Many progressives across the US see the following as a big negative.
NPR -- The Republican Governors Association targeted 10 so-called swing states — Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Florida and Nevada among them — helping to recruit candidates and investing $49.5 million on their gubernatorial campaigns. Most of the money went to buy ads and to messages that tapped deepening pessimism among voters about Obama and the Democratic Congress' handling of the economy and deficit spending. When the Republican push began, a Democrat was governor in 8 of the 10 states. Last Tuesday, voters elected Republican governors in nine of the 10.
Yes ... and take a wild stab and guess which state got the only Democrat elected.
So with that said... Here's a little letter to the US Department of Transportation:
Dear US Dept of Transportation,
Send this extra $1.2 billion planned for Ohio and Wisconsin that they don't want to:California Department of Transportation
Attention: Edmund Gerald "Jerry" Brown, Jr.,
We'll gladly add it to the $3 billion we've already collected and banked for the California High-Speed Rail Authority.
And the estimated 600,000 construction and related workers will appreciate it and that also includes those workers from all across the country who will be high-balling it into California to pickup a paycheck.
That is all...
Now ... If Brown is a Moonbeam -- Then these Republican governors elect are black-holes...
Have a fine day ... I'm going sailing . . .
In the mean time you can all take a virtual quick trip between LA and San Francisco...
