Description

Highlights how badly governor's all across the country have it right now. The article has 2 portions that made me laugh out loud- Governors increasingly blame the Bush Administration for the severity of their situation. "I am a good Republican. I am a good team player," Arkansas' Huckabee said laughingly during an interview. "[But] turn that tape recorder off and I will speak an earful." -and this- Aboard Air Force One between Canton and Dayton two weeks ago, Ohio's Governor Bob Taft laid out his predicament to the President. Taft cited his state's high unemployment rate and staggering Medicaid costs and his sinking approval rating. It was, as someone who was there later described it, "a cry for help." Bush sat silently, and all Taft had at the end of the day was a photo op with a President whose popularity he can only envy. -he he he.
