“States Recruit Worried Californians”

Friday, February 13, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The Wall Street Journal surveys the efforts by other states to recruit Golden Staters shocked by Arnold’s and the state legislature’s almost unimaginable indifference to basic economics. The size of the tax hikes being proposed by Sacramento’s “leaders” will wipe out any relief being sent to individuals by the massive spending plan emerging from Congress, and the billions in direct relief to the state will just vanish into the vast crevice that is the state’s budget.

As discussed on yesterday’s show, the state has been pushing people towards the exits for a very long time. Colorado, Arizona and other attractive places to live won’t find recruiting hard at all if the sacramento brain trust continues to torture its private sector.

A Likud-Kadima Coalition

Deep into today’s Haaretz story:

A senior official within Kadima said he expects his party to eventually join a coalition under Netanyahu, “because at the end of the day there’s a little something called the State of Israel, and it needs to be run.”

If Kadima does join under Likud, it will demand the foreign and defense portfolios, a party official said.

For a detailed review of what happened in Israel, and what may come next, read Yossi Verter’s long analysis.

Jeffrey Goldberg’s summary: “The Labor Party is dead. More than that, the peace camp is dead, or comatose, at least.”
