As everyone knows, Obama will be at ASU this afternoon (Don't take us for granted down here, Barack. Come for a visit sometime!) According to the Star, the legislature is invited, but, no surprise, most of the Rs will be sitting this one out.
Melvin is among the "Thanks, but no thanks" crowd.
Fair enough. But then Melvin was asked whether he thinks Obama will take Arizona in 2012.
With all the starts and stops we've seen from the Rs in the legislature as they try their hand at governing along with their friend, the Accidental Guv, I imagine they've burned quite a bit of rubber off their tires lately. And remember how they laughed when Obama said we should keep our tires properly inflated? (I've always suspected the Rs weren't driving with their tires fully inflated.) That should wear their wheels down even faster.
Time will tell who will be driving on the rims first, AZ Republicans or Obama. If I were a betting man, there's no question where I'd put my money.
