All Politics Local?

Maybe. Is it just me or does there seem to be some sort of collusion going on on the state level? Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin really swatted the hornet’s nest with the union busting thing. He’s about to pay for that overreach with his republican majority. He may even pay for it with the early recall of his seat.

It’s odd that the Governors of Wisconsin. New Jersey, Illinois, Florida, Indiana, and Michigan who are all suddenly engaging in similar anti-union activities. It’s almost as if they got the memo from somewhere higher up. It’s as if they’ve been instructed to act in unison on the same set of instructions.

Nate posted a recent set of numbers that showed the limited support for Republican Governors. Could it be that Republicans have lost faith in normal voters? Perhaps they realize voters are becoming more Democratic. Perhaps it’s best to scare voters into voting Republican based upon local fears.

But could local fears be influenced by national politics? Likewise, could national politics be influenced by local politics?

Who exactly is yanking whose chain?

It would appear that Republicans are trying to use any tactic possible to disenfranchise Democrats. Earlier in the year several Republican Governors attended a closed meeting in Aspen, Colorado.Turns out the meeting was sponsored by the Koch Brothers. Why do you suppose all those Republican Governors went there? Is it a coincidence that Governors are acting in a synchronistic manner. It’s as if they had almost received instructions from a similar source. Fox News, maybe? Koch brothers enterprise? Probably.

All I know is that if I were hemorrhaging support as fast as the Republican party, I’d be looking for excuses, too. Perhaps this is the Republican Alamo.

    The Republican Alamo? Along with the Debt Ceiling Kabuki as the Republican Little Big Horn, we can only hope so.
