Douglas Will Of Course Work Out a Just and Wise Compromise With Dems On Taxes And Spending Because He Is Far Above Partisan Grandstanding. Or, You Know, Not.
Quick show of hands: Is there anyone out there who thinks that Jim Douglas will reach an agreement on taxes and spending with the Democrats, no matter what Democrats bring forward, when vetoing the budget will a) allow both Jim and Brian to portray Dems as rapacious tax-and-spenders in need of Dubie’s oversight; b) force several of Dubie’s competitors to stay in Montpelier as opposed to campaigning; c) give the Governor a chance to replay the disastrous veto override of last session, this time with a much more partisan election-year dynamic; and d) complete a pattern of Lucy/Charlie Brown-style “negotiations” that Douglas has engaged in every year for the last four terms?
We thought so. VDB too.
