AP Laments: 'GOP governors undermine Obama's agenda in states'

I suppose these evil Republicans were elected to implement Obama's agenda?
Their ranks swollen after the last election, Republican governors from Florida to Alaska are undermining President Barack Obama's agenda at every turn ahead of the Democrat's 2012 re-election campaign.

Some are rejecting federal money for high-speed rail. Many are fighting the president's health care law. And several are going after the Democratic Party's bedrock constituency, pushing laws that would weaken the power of unions.

Not that any Republican governor will acknowledge that this is politics at play - even if it is.
Gee, ya think?

Now that's some piercing insight from the National Political Editor. Imagine the chutzpah of these Republicans to try and thwart the radical agenda of the opposition party. What's gotten into them?
But left unsaid in interviews with governors attending this weekend's National Governors Association meeting was this: Republicans, particularly in places with many electoral votes, like the Midwest, are fully aware that stymieing Obama's plans in the states could weaken him just as he tries to make the case to the country that he should get a second term.
Poor Obama. It's almost as if he doesn't have a bully pulpit from which his Teleprompter can give daily speeches. How will he ever counter the ill effects of these evil men trying to ruin him?

Let's give the AP something really big to whine about.

<span>The spoils systems was supposed to have been ended by the creation of the civil service. But now, with all these public employee unions, the purpose of the civil service has been defeated. What we need to do now is void all prior <span>contracts</span> cronyism instituted under what has become a Democratic Party-Govt Employee Unions spoils system.</span>

Shocking! The Repubs don't like the Prez's agenda!  They probably won't even vote for him in 2012!

That is just too funny for words. Really too funny!

May a Christian God bless any Governor who seeks to prevent Obama from turning this great nation into a Communist/Muslim Brotherhood 3rd world nation.

I just love this story!  I just love it!  The ultimate in whiney Dim Marxism.

Like when they made their slaves fight for the Confederacy in the Civil War.
