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.

"Frankly, I've got better things to do," said state Sen. Al Melvin, R-Tucson. "I don't agree with his social agenda — socialized medicine, out-of-control spending and taxation."

Fair enough. But then Melvin was asked whether he thinks Obama will take Arizona in 2012.

"I couldn't see it happening, and I'm doing everything in my power to make sure he doesn't," Melvin said. "I think the treads are going to come off those tires. I think he's going to be down to steel rims real soon."

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.

  1. If our currency “IS” still around in four years?

    As Clinton said;”Its all about what the word IS means!”

    I think most on this blog think spending us out of debt by using debt works?

    It might work if we started with a manfacturing base to support huge tax increases; which will NOT be the case in four years; let alone in two!

    I see nothing in BOTH political Parties that has as a basic fundamental goal as your and my National Security and Iam not talking about the Pentagon; Iam talking about The United States Treasury and Federal Reserve working outside of Congress and continued lying from the White House as personal Banking friends of The Chicago Mob continues to tell We The People” HOPE AND CHANGE!”

  2. Eh, George W. Bush favored expanded socialized medicine, out of control spending and taxing from future generations via out of control government borrowing. Sounds not that different from the current president.
    Not a dime’s worth of difference between them.
