At first read of Michelle Malkins piece from yesterday about Indiana and Louisiana being denied Obamacare waivers I was inclined to agree with her. Her point about other states with Republican Governors receiving waivers made sense. Then I thought about it a little more.
My first thought after thinking about it was that its wasn't so much that it was a Republican governor as it was WHO that Republican Governor was. In the case of Bobby Jindal and Mitch Daniels. Both of which at some point seemed like they might run against him for POTUS. Sounds like a stretch and pretty petty yes, but would you really believe it to be out of the realm of possibility.
Nevada got it because Dirty Harry is still from there of that I'm certain. Not sure why Wisconsin was issued one other than they had to give one to a state to try to cover their tactics. Maine is in the bag for him so we all know how they got theirs. Iowa I'm not sure about maybe.
Ok nevermind just looked it up. Yes those states (WI, NV, IA, ME) have Repub Governors but they also have one other thing in common, they all went for Obama in 08.
Granted Indiana did as well but I still think that Obama sees Mitch Daniels as a threat and will go out of his way to harm him.
LA obviously didn't go his way and there is that whole pesky oil/natural gas problem down there. I don't see him going out of his way to help a state that is doing everything it can to get oil and gas drilling back on track.
And of course that leave North Dakota as the other state to get denied. Well that's simple their economy is growing from..... Oil and Natural Gas drilling.
Yep so now you see, It just takes a small bit of digging and a devious mind that finds the most petty things to attack your enemies with to see how this White House works.
I may be wrong but I doubt it.
