RNC – More Republican Duality from Governors Scott Walker, Bob McDonnell
Between Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) and Governor Bob McDonnell (R-VA) the Republican duality posits that President Obama is bad for jobs on a national scale at the same time that they [Republican governors] are good for jobs in their respective states. Pay no attention to the federal stimulus spending in their states. They [Republican governors] are solely responsible for their job growth and unemployment rates and President Obama’s policies and the stimulus had nothing to do with it. In other words: The good news? “Yeah, that’s us” — The bad news? “That’s all Obama” — Oh, and “Republicans Rule!”
When you can find any positive economic news in Republican controlled states, that means that state operates in a vacuum, not unlike the conservative bubble.
