    questionable and only michigan looking like they will do it

    Was reported last night on Rachel Maddow that

    1- 2 Va senators and the Gov have said NO will not pass/do/sign

    2- FL Gov has supposedly said will not do.  Probably because a sure thing in cementing his loss against Crist for re-election

    3- Pa and Ohio are supposedly silent on the issue now

    4- michigan only state still going foreword at the moment

    •  Yep, Rachel called it right about Michigan! (3+ / 0-)

      What ever happened to the Michigan Democrats?

      Dick Cheney said, "Pi$$ on 'em!" And, Ronald Reagan replied, "That's a Great Idea. Let's Call it 'Trickle Down Economics!"

      They rammed the right to work bill through the lame-duck session because they knew they wouldn't have the votes to pass it come January. If they don't have the votes for that now, they don't have the votes for this scheme either.

      The scheme is collapsing all over the place now that it has been exposed to daylight and they're getting hammered over it. This was the type of scheme that had to be done on the quiet and implemented before anyone really knew what was going on. Now that it's been exposed to daylight, it's shriveling faster than a vampire.

      Why Reince Preibus publicly endorsed this, I have no idea. Idiot. But good for us that he's an idiot. What good is he, besides having a wicked Scrabble hand for a name?

    •  It makes no sense to push this in Ohio (2+ / 0-)

      for Ohio is really a swing state where a Republican CAN win the state in the future.  Thus why would Ohio take themselves out of contention for a future Republican winning the entire state outright?

      The two states where this could happen is Pennsylvania and Michigan where those are not really swing states.

      I could see a HUGE backlash in 2014 against those Republican governors if indeed they do change the electoral votes.  It could be a rallying cry for the Democratic candidate.

      President Obama, January 9, 2012: "Change is hard, but it is possible. I've Seen it. I've Lived it."
