In my opinion President Obama showed his toughness today. After the Governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal and the Governor of South Carolina, Mark Sanford went on Meet the Press yesterday to un-officially start their 2012 Presidential campaigns, President Obama checked them for doing so by stating “there will be plenty of time for campaigning later”.
It is very interesting to me that these Republican Governors refuse to take money that will help their constituents but in the next few years they will raise millions of dollars to run for re-election and higher office. As Governor Schwarzenegger said yesterday he is a Governor first and a Republican second and it is his duty to take care of the people of his state. He needs to talk to his fellow Republican Governors and remind them of that. But perhaps the voters of their states will do that for him.
