Of course we did. The previous Governor and Democratic members of the state legislature didn't care about industry, only about illegals and Hollywood.

They drove industrial jobs away, instead of trying to keep them.

hasn't heard about the worldwide recession. Or the fact that industrial employment has been moving offshore for decades. Pay attention, bonehead!

Our President said the recession was over in 2009. So why did New Mexico lose even more industrial jobs in 2010?

At some point, you need to cowboy up and quit using your same old excuses.

Agreed. I've been doing battle with the Santa Fe Liberal for a long time. The guy has used that old "world wide recession" excuse forever. Recent posts by him lead me to believe he's a liberal Democrat State Legislator, or at least works for one. If so, I hope the guy is either fired by his constituents, or gets canned when his boss is voted out of office.

Bill Richardson signed into law the Democrat sponsored and supported state legislation that increased regulation and costs to the oil and natural gas industry, and it went into effect at the very same time the economy took a dump. Richardson and the Democrats refused to address the issue even as the businesses that supported the industry were closing down New Mexico branches, and the trucks were rolling out of New Mexico to states that wanted the economic development. All the while, Richardson fiddled with nonsensical big-taxpayer funded boondoggles like the Railrunner, Spaceport, and the movie business. Then, in the last year of office, he named everything he could after himself so that he could leave some sort of ego-driven legacy to himself.

Face it, if Bill Richardson could have achieved the status of Pharaoh, we'd have pyramids all over New Mexico, no-doubt built at taxpayer expense.(A modern-day Pharaoh would have a tough time justifying slave labor in modern times, so the next-best thing is involuntary financial contribution).

So far I have not seen one bill on the agenda that would qualify as a "jobs creation" bill. It seems that our new GOv and our new Representatives have something entirely different on their mind.

Take a look at every bill that has been introduced so far this session. See if you agree with the ideas that our elected folks are proposing to get us out of this mess.

A lot of fluff and no substance. A lot of political fighting material but not much real action on the part of anyone in the Round House.

And so far Susana has not championed a singel bill. She just says that "if it makes it to my desk I will sign it". The legislature is out of control completely under her leadership. She has very little power and the Dem representatives are swinging her around by the tail.

She does not seem to be doing anything to get action this session besides "tattle tale" on Democratic reps who voted against her bills. She really cannot apply political pressure...she has none.

And now she has apointed an immigrant to a top cabinet post. She cant keep them from getting licenses so she is gong to give them $106K per year in her administration.

Darn glad I didnt vote for her. The promises sounded good but she is completely unable to deliver.

I voted for her, and I never would expect a pablum puking liberal like you to vote for or support anything she does. But a majority of New Mexicans did vote for her, and a majority of New Mexicans do support what she is doing. Identifying the Democrats as New Mexico's party of no is a good step. There is nothing wrong with giving an appointment to a legal immigrant, while taking away driver's licenses from illegal immigrants.

Getting the illegals out of the state is a good way to provide more jobs to residents who are citizens.

I voted for her as well, and I'm happy with the outcome. Until we can get rid of the liberals in the State Legislature who have worked to hard to socialize and ruin this state, neither Governor Martinez nor the Conservatives in the state house can do much but help identify those who are obstructing the wishes of the people.

Interestingly, I have also brought up the idea that the Governor is doing a good job calling out those who are blocking the legislative ideas that got her elected in the first place. I think it's a brilliant strategy, as our elected officials have been able to hide behind procedure in the past, since they were not being seriously challenged in any way.

On another note...I think I get your joke: Morton Downey Jr.? And would you be Wally George as well? LOL!!!!

I think good leadership would be a good strategy. You know, championing bills in the session and working hard to get them passed. Not sitting aside and whining when a vote does not go her way.

I think her ideas are stellar. I cant argue with most of them at all. I think her performance is poor. She hasnt tried at all to get anything passed. She seems to think it is enough for her to just want it.

At some point she is going to have to go to bat for what she believes in and start playing the game. Just letting the media know where you stand on issues is not championing your beliefs. And when you dont get what you want you cant whine about it and try to villanize the reps who were in there wresting over the issue.

This is politics at its worst. he Dems are more powerful now than at any other time because the Gov is clueless. Give me one example where the Dems have not run away with this session. Even in the Republican house. It is a fiasco. The Republican party has been divided against itself and is weaker than ever despite more numbers than ever.

No leadership. It is the very definition of "no leadership". Even a bill with overwhelming public approval will be almost impossible for the Republicans to pass.

The good ideas are there, but the ability to carry them out is completely absent.

Since our state is Democrat by a big majority, getting rid of the Democrats are a pipe dream. At some point people are going to have to begin thinking about realistic solutions instead of "getting rid of the liberals".

the recession , stupid.

"When the announcement was made, GE Aviation spokesman Robert Kennedy blamed the closing on the recession, saying the company was seeing "double digit reduction in engine production."

The job force there has been as high as 2,000 in the 1980s and as low as 400 when the closure was announced, according to GE Aviation spokeswoman Deb Case."

Why battle with the mentally challanged ?.

Santa Fe is not worth our time, why ? because Santa Fe is a very angry and violent person that would justify violance in the name of Communism, and if millions died to further Santa Fe's social/political agenda, it's really no big deal.

Bedrock,
Since both paries have become so seperated, there will never be in history a time were we will ever come close to even liking each other, unless of course the USA get attacked and we get involved in another World War, which seems to be the only time we come together as a nation.

No I see nothing changing or getting better, it is only going to get worse, one side wants to be left alone and the other side wants to nose into everyones personal business, so in the very near future, I personly see the USA either having another civil war, or we peacefully divide up the nation.

And did you happen to miss the worldwide recession, too or the recession was the cause of the largest factory closing last year in New Mexico.

You hit the nail square on the head. I don't respond to SF's garbage anymore nor do I even read his inane posts anymore.

Back to the topic. The cause of the largest plant closing in New Mexico last year was the worldwide recession and the decline in manufacturing in the US in general. Face facts, don't lie.

Perhaps. But I do believe that calling people out on their beliefs is a good strategy. When rabid liberals like him go of on their mad tirades, name calling and spouting their leftist rhetoric, it gives sane people who read it something to think about.

Besides, in some ways I see debate on this forum as "sport", and it helps to keep the mind sharp to see how quickly one can pick apart the liberal mantra. In short, it's far more fun than sitting in front of the idiot box!

Getting the Democrats on record as opposing popular legislation is a brilliant strategy that is indeed working. Being able to print "scorecards" that clearly delineate the political stance of each candidate will form the basis of a clear choice come election day.

Much of the legislation being proposed today is designed to undo legislation passed by Bill Richardson and his minions with little to no public support in the first place. Such legislation was swept through the state house and signed by Richardson with little fanfare, and the public was only aware it was even happening after the bills were made law.

Do you really think bills such as the one that gives driver's licenses to illegals were overwhelmingly popular when they were enacted? Do you think that public sentiment on the issue has swung by such a wide margin in only a few short years?

No. The liberal Democrats went to Santa Fe and did whatever they darn well pleased, and then told their constituents why it was good for them, thinking they were immune because New Mexico always votes for Democrats.

To their surprise, part of the damage was undone by the conservative sweeps during the election last November, but liberals will hold on to their power tooth and nail. Case in point: The Democrats would have just as soon let the bill rescinding driver's licenses for illegals die a quiet death in committee, thus keeping Democrats in the general legislature from having to face the light of day, but the conservatives said no, and forced the issue to a full vote, where many Democrats, knowing they would face the wrath of voters if they clearly opposed popular opinion, voted with Republicans for the measure. Those that voted nay did so at their own peril, and now face the voters with a clear choice having been made. A great strategy that worked. Now Senate Democrats have to make the tough choices about whether to either maintain the status quo and face the music come election time, or side with their constituents and perhaps get re-elected.

There is nothing wrong with contentious politics. Every bill should face tough scrutiny, because every bill has the potential to either separate a person from either their freedom, or their money, or both. Such actions should never be taken lightly. But during the Richardson administration, public sentiment was often the furthest thing from the the minds of our elected officials. There was an agenda behind the Democrats actions. The agenda came first, and the public be damned.

Boo Hoo, I am 1000% percent positive if Obama asked you to murder for him, you would do it in a second, BTW, I tote Guns because of people like you that have been directly responsible for over 60 million deaths world wide for the same political agenda you hold dear.
I am am very much convinced if given the chance, you would kill every Conservative Libertarian in the world if you were given permission and you would do it with a passion.

Remember, History is on my side and has proven over and over again that you Socialist are the most violent people on earth.
