Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Governor Sitting on His Hands

As we all know, Gov. Kaine would love nothing better than to see any type of transportation proposal/solution die or not get accomplished this session. He is banking on being able to pick up seats in NOVA and Hampton Roads by campaigning on a failure of the GOP Assembly to get anything done on transportation.

It looks like some GOPs are firing back. The Washington Times has this article where it quotes a few GOP electeds that say they want Kaine to show some help in this transportation fight. All of this while our friends over at Southwest by Southeast say that Tim Kaine is "AWOL" on the transportation debate.

I was just wondering if anyone thinks the people will partially hold the governor responsible for nothing happening on transportation if that occurs? It seems that Kaine's plan could backfire; b/c the GOP can say the dems don't want to get anything accomplished.

At any rate, I still hope we can get something done this session; to avoid a major showdown in November.

    no deal will make things very difficult on republicans. we are the majority. the dems will be able to convince the average voter that republicans cannot lead. i think Kaine dodges the bullet on this one.

    why should he lift a single finger... he saw just how well that approach worked for the democrats in the Congressional elections last fall when it came to Iraq. No plans of their own... just finger pointing.
