Some other stuff to ponder:
On this one she deserves the benefit of the doubt, Mr. Elsenheimer's opinion not withstanding. It's highly unlikely that her state treasurer and state budget director would be co-conspirators in cooking-up money they didn't know would be there.
Bob Kleine and Bob Emerson were as surprised as anyone to see the windfall, but they and the governor were up front with the school community noting that come January the $127 cut may stand or it could be reduced.
Dearborn Public Schools will hold off on teacher layoffs for now - and that is far more important than political calculations, or worrying about how this would appear to right wing editorialists who don't give a damn about anything but cheering on the destruction of the state in an attempt to return the Republicans to power. Bishop's comment? "That revenue was never going to come. She finally gave in to that." You see, for Bishop and his fans, tearing down the governor is far more important than our children. So cold. Repeat after me: "Republicans refuse to fund our schools." And don't stop saying it.
