  •  Don't confuse Coxes (none)
    Kathy Cox with a K is a GOP education official who resigned in some kind of funding scandal. Cathy Cox with a C is the Dem Sec. of State responsible for bringing paperless Diebold machines to our great state and as a result is being shunned by voters.

    Perdue on the other hand has done a lot to buy his growing support lately, creating sales tax holidays, waiving fuel and energy taxes to lower costs during supply volatility, and giving outright handouts to each and every county to work on roads and education programs. No wonder his numbers are climbing. Can't say I'm too happy about it, but if his actions improve life for average Georgians, then all the better. As long as Diebold Cox never wins another election in her life, that's an added bonus.

    •  Perdue's not as bad as I thought (none)
      Like the Democrat that he was not so very long ago, Perdue seems to be using common sense as a governor. I'm happy he hasn't (yet) drunk the neo-con Kool-aid.

      Of course he's just buying this support, throwing taxpayer money around, but hey, I'm not necessarily opposed to that as long as it goes to the right groups.

      To be completely honest, Perdue is not doing things that much differently from most conservative Democrats that governed the Peach State before the Republican takeover.

      At this point, I'll take it.

    •  Oops you are right (none)
      It should be Cathy Cox, not repub Kathy Cox.

      I can live with Perdue as he's not the typical right wing Repub.

      •  Yeah (none)
        That is what I am hearing from family members there. He is not as bad as they thought as apparently he has not drunk the Kool Aid. My fear is if he gets a second term, will he drink the Kool Aid or run the state like a right winger?

        •  Perdue (none)
          has pissed off the state's teachers, who helped get him elected. And, the flaggers still hate him for the way he handled the flag issue. But, Ga Business Comm is happy and won't want to rock the boat.
    •  At least (none)
      the gay adoption/foster care ban seems to have been shelved this year, although I'm not sure if that will last (the parental notification bill was sprung unannounced).

      So who is secretary of education now? I can't remember.

    •  True (none)
      What Sonny did with the Gasoline issue during the High Price times really earned him some popularity. I even have to admit as disgusted as I get with the Republicans and with him being Governor of GA, sitting here in PA,....I got a bit jealous of the Georgians for getting a break with their Gas prices during that huge increase crunch time.
