….Georgia Governor (R) threatens to impeach his Democratic Atty Gen if he doesn’t join the suit against the Healthcare Bill…..

People are going Batshit crazy in this country…….

Now they are trying waste people’s money fighting thing’s that they will surely lose…for purely political purposes…

This from Andre Walker @ Mydd.Com…….

Gov. Sonny Perdue (R – Georgia) and the state’s GOP congressional delegation called on Attorney General Baker to join thirteen other state attorneys general across the nation in challenging the new health care law’s constitutionality.

“I am today renewing my December request to the Attorney General that he join other states in reviewing the constitutionality of this travesty. My office has already begun to review any and all legal options to challenge this legislation,” Perdue said in a news release Monday.

“The Democrats’ health care bill is nothing less than an unmitigated attack on individual freedom, choices, and the quality of health care in this nation,” said Congressman Tom Price (R – Georgia).  “Families in Georgia deserve to have their constitutional rights protected against a federal government that is imposing its will through new mandates.”

Price chairs the Republican Study Committee, a group of over 115 congressional Republicans organized for the purpose of advancing a conservative social and economic agenda in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Attorney General Baker responded to Price and Perdue thusly:

Based upon my understanding of the current Act, I am unaware of any constitutional infirmities and do not think it would be prudent, legally or fiscally, to pursue such litigation. I must therefore respectfully decline your request.

CD on the Georgia Governor’s race……Dem and GOP lineups…..

Democrats currently running:

[Barners ]

Former Governor Roy Barnes (D): served as the Peach State’s 80th chief executive from January 11, 1999-January 13, 2003 before being tossed out on his butt in 2002’s upset election night loss to an unknown State Senator named Sonny Perdue (R): 53-45.

Barnes is now back in the game, planning to win back his old job (see Bill Clinton’s comeback in Arkansas back in ’82 after losing 2 years earlier) for a 2nd non-consecutive term and with non-stop polls showing him overwhelmingly ahead in the Democratic gubernatorial primary set for July 2010, the former governor is likely gonna be the Democratic nominee.

Georgia State Attorney General Thurbert Baker (D): one of 8 African Americans to hold statewide office in Georgia; was appointed by then-Governor Zell Miller (D) as GA’s 52nd chief law enforcement officer on September 1, 1997 and won re-election to 3 unprecedented full, four-year terms in 1998, 2002 and 2006 (where he was the Democrats’ highest-vote getter with 57 percent).

Baker is trying to become the state’s first African American governor and the 3rd in the Deep South (US Rep. Artur Davis (D-AL) is running for AL governor).

Former GA State Labor Commissioner David Poythress (D): used to be an early frontrunner for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, but quickly saw his poll numbers plunge fast after Barnes jump in.

GA State House Minority Leader DuBose Porter (D-Dublin): I guess seeing him run for the governorship makes sense since the GA GOP is likely to maintain their majority in the Georgia House of Representatives, where Porter had ambitions for being Speaker.

Republicans running:

[ Oxendine ]

GA Commissioner of Insurance John Oxendine (R): first elected to statewide office in 1994 and handily re-elected in 1998, 2002, and 2006 in his current gig. After 16 years, Oxendine is seeking the GOP gubernatorial nomination for governor: polls show him leading by double-digits and has an early edge over Barnes in a potential general election match-up.

GA Secretary of State Karen Handel (R): first Republican to win this office since Reconstruction in 2006, and had a controversial tenure while in office with the Voter ID battle, leading to Cynthia Tucker of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to criticize Handel’s efforts to disenfranchise African American and other minority voters during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Handel, according to political sources is Perdue’s handpicked successor to the throne, if she wins, she’ll be the first female elected governor in the Peach State.

US Rep. Nathan Deal (R-GA): first elected to the House as a Democrat in 1992, but is very, very conservative and switched political affiliation to the GOP following the 1994 midterm elections and his record went from shaky moderate to hard-core conservative ever since.

SE goes after RedState again…….

Here’s more and the link…………….

From SE………

Sigh, it’s always the faux Conservative charlatans that make asinine posts like this. Here’s another gem from Empty-Suit-in-Chief Erick Erickson:

Yesterday I gave you background on Georgia Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine and why I think Republican Primary voters must unite to defeat him.

Let me give you some more today………

Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) is one of the most conservative Republicans in Congress. He is unapologetic in his demands for smaller government. He has no shame in defying Republicans leaders in Congress, routinely voting against the party and in favor of budget cutting legislation. The guy is a conservative hero in Congress………
