Trib Jeers Otter … And Fulcher

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, Marty Trillhaase/Lewiston Tribune gives jeers to ...

... to Idaho Gov. C.L. (Butch) Otter and state Sen. Russ Fulcher, R-Meridian.Rivals for the GOP gubernatorial nomination, they were singing in two-part harmony Tuesday when Boise businessman A.J. Balukoff announced he would run as a Democrat. Warbled Otter's campaign: "The governor looks forward to discussing with voters the implications of a Democrat working to advance the Obama administration's big-government priorities here in Idaho." And,crooned Fulcher: "Let's not forget that he represents the party that authored Obamacare." Sing that tune loudly enough, Otter and Fulcher believe, and Idaho's Obama-loathing voters will forget that on the GOP's watch, they've endured miserable incomes, depleted school budgets, tax relief for the wealthy and skyrocketing college tuition. What's the second verse?/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here (4th item).

Question: I wonder how many Idahoans are duped into political propaganda that connects Idaho Democrats with Obama?
