So where’s Dino Rossi? Well according to the Spokane Spokesman-Review (boneheaded, paid-subscription required), the man who claims to be “taking a well-deserved break from politics,” is actually out in Spokane… campaigning.
In his blue suit, pressed white shirt and red tie, Dino Rossi appears every inch the candidate.
He’s got a book on leadership coming out.
He’s making a few select speaking appearances, like the one this morning to Republican state Senate leaders meeting in Spokane.
He’s returning the favor of friends who helped with his past campaigns, down to recording a few automated “robo-calls” for candidates in the 2005 election.
Yeah… sure… except for all the campaigning and political stuff he’s doing, he’s taking a break from politics.
What a load of crap.
So Dino… as long as you’re returning favors of friends who helped with past campaigns, how about returning a favor to the business community that bankrolled your run for governor? Why not record one of those robo-calls, asking voters not to support I-912? Or at the very least, why not just stake out a public position on an issue on which you’ve surely taken a private one… the most contentious issue on the November ballot?
Where’s Rossi on I-912? We’ll probably never know, because he’s apparently too busy campaigning for governor to display the kind of leadership necessary to be one.
