As much as I hate the Bush and Obama stimulus packages, I have to say that those Republican governors are acting quite dumb, and are helping to recruit new voters for the Democratic party by turning down stimulus money that could be used for unemployment benefits. After all, unemployment knows no party, and a lot of those who are unemployed right now are going to turn out to be former Republicans. I think those governors should follow the example of Bobby Jindal who, while being against the stimulus, refuses to screw the unemployed in Louisiana in order to make a political point. Unemployment is a real issue, with real people, and should not be a political football.
