Burka takes a look at how Rick Perry’s rejection of the stimulus funds for unemployment insurance might play out in his eventual battle with Kay Bailey Hutchison for the GOP nomination for Governor. Be sure to also read this comment by “Conservative Texan”, which boils the economics of the issue down nicely. Perry’s stance has polled well so far, but I think that two billion dollar loan we’re going to have to take out to clean this mess up is going to render him vulnerable. That’s assuming that KBH can get her act together sufficiently to make something of it – figuring out whether or not she should resign would be a good sgtart – and/or the Democrats keeping the pressure on, of course. I have more faith in the latter than in the former, but hey, you never know.
