Most politicians wait until at least half of their term before they start campaigning for reelection or a higher office. The Lt. Governor has only been in office for five months and he's already shirking his duties to seek another position. A line needs to be drawn. Serve at least half your term before hitting the campaign trail, for god's sake! Maybe Sanchez should be laid off, along with those 44 state workers, since it seems his job isn't necessary.

Start with Obama, who has never stopped campaigning, and then Richardson.

We can't lay off Richardson, he's no longer governor...dumbass! And Obama is good enough to do his job of getting us out of Bush's mess and still campaign, unlike the loser, McCain, who wanted to suspend his campaign in order to deal with the financial crisis in 2008.

SO now you admit that it's OK for some politicians to campaign while it's not OK for others. Who is going to get us out of Obama's mess? Keep HOPING for that CHANGE!

Your wife really likes the change of being with me every chance she gets. I don't think you're ever going to get over that, huh?

Keep on staying in your dream world, Wally. I really like going after her Beaver.
