Sometimes, though, Abdul is just over the top when it comes to being a homer for various Republican administrations. Today, on his Indy Politics website, Abdul posted a blog about how the $500 million dollars in misplaced taxpayer money that has turned up just isn't that big of a deal. Embarrassing, he admits, but really nothing to worry about since we're not in the financial bind that other states are in.
From that blog:
Okay, Abdul...I see where your going here. At least we can misplace a half a billion dollars and still have a surplus. Your spin on the stories really make it sound like you don't care, though, about the misplacement of such an enormous sum of taxpayer money. That's just silly.
Yes, many other states are having a budget disaster. No, Indiana is not one of them. Comparing what is going on there to what is going on here, though, is apples to oranges. Instead of saying "I'd rather have our problem than their problem," you should be saying, "both these problems are completely irresponsible and cannot be tolerated."
In fact, Abdul, you are one of the first ones to pipe up about the hypocrisies of the statements made by people on the left sometimes. I find myself wondering how your story would have sounded if this had occurred in a Bayh or O'Bannon administration.
