Cop Out

Governor Susana Martinez finally said something about the federal government shutdown.  She scolded both parties for not working things out.  She took no position on the issues involved and said nothing that would damage her reputation as a Tea Party sweetheart.  She did not stand up for doing the right thing other than at least breaking her silence.

She says the Feds need to look at how the states balance their budget every year, thus proving to everyone she is a mile wide and an inch deep.  She truly doesn't understand the difference between the Fed's mandates and the State's responsibilities.  Otherwise she would not be uttering this populist nonsense.  We really have a governor with a mediocre knowledge of government.

She "declined" to say whether she thinks the economy should be held hostage to the defunding of Obamacare or not, and the reporter made no attempt to pin her down on it, or anything, but then that is probably the terms of her talking to the media.

And I still see no attempt being made by anybody to report on the effects the shutdown in New Mexico, but then that is probably the terms of working for the media.
