“Democratic governors facing grim budget choices, lingering unemployment and angry voters are pointing a finger at their colleagues in Democratic-controlled Washington to explain this year’s toxic political climate.”
They don’t have Bush to blame anymore. Now they only have Obama and the Democratic leadership to blame. One would think these governors would model success. One would think these Democrats would look to states which are thriving, see what they are doing right, and copy it. Not Democratic governors. They keep holding on to their failed policies and search for new ones.
“I’m disappointed in Washington,” said Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn. “We can’t have Herbert Hoover economics coming out of some of the members of Congress. They don’t understand how you fight a recession. The federal government has to run a deficit in recessionary times because we’ve got to get out of the ditch.”
The one person who does not understand how to fight a recession is the abject failure, Pat Quinn. He also has no concept of basic economics. In his short two years as governor, Pat Quinn has taken the state from the Blagojevich caused financial crisis to a state of near insolvency. Under Pat Quinn, Illinois is facing a fall into the financial abyss.
Democratic Governors are in a total state of denial. They refuse to look into the mirror and see where the real problems lie. They also refuse to look at states like Indiana and Texas, which, if not fully thriving, are not suffering.
Illinois is losing businesses and few are locating or relocating here. The sucking sound you here are all the jobs being lost. Businesses and their attendant jobs are not created by government spending or deficits. They are created by a healthy business and commercial environment. That environment in Illinois is toxic. Add the layers of bureaucracy, criminal corruption, and the total lack of ethical governance.
The Democrats just do not get it. Pat Quinn never has. It is the policies of this state which are stifling economic growth. Policies Quinn wants reinforced and added to. So go ahead Quinn. Blame Obama. Blame your beloved corrupt Democratic Party. Even Blame Bush.
Come January, the fingers are going to be pointed at you. Blame Quinn will be the mantra.
