Will our Attorney General Gary King or our State Auditor Hector Balderas do anything about the willful and illegal mining of government data by Governor Susanna Martinez's political henchman Jay McCleskey? Just imagine what would happen if a democratic governor was sitting in the chair right now and there were a republican AG and Auditor. This wouldn't be one day coverage in the media I can assure you. And this is where the democrats always fail. They have become mostly meek and subservient. Where is the courage?
I would like to see some righteous indignation like the oped in the Journal this morning from an Albuquerque resident who put the whole union bashing campaign into perspective. Even if you don't like unions this essay hit home on the assault on working people in this country. Read Tim Taylor's majestic piece here.
President Obama will try to do something today to stop his slide in the face of a still difficult economic recovery. This may be one of the most important orations he has done. I hope he can show who the working people can trust in this country. If he can't then he is in danger of losing. It could happen.
