    The real surprise in this survey is that Governor Fallin is still approved by 41% of Oklahomans. And that’s the problem.

    No need to go through all the disasters created during her first seven years as governor but suffice it to say you can’t run against all the alleged evils affiliated with government and then turn around and propose a $1 billion dollars in tax increases to support it.

    Governor Fallin is a nice lady in the wrong job at the wrong time and her supportive Republican legislators are at best clueless. At worst they simply enjoy driving our state into the dirt on every category of importance…….education, health care, public safety, roads, etc.

    But hey. Most Okies asked for this crew through the ballot box knowing full well what they were going to get………and they are getting it in spades.

    I wouldn’t expect readers to believe me but you might ask your own kids if they plan to stay in this state after college. Maybe you’ll believe them.

    Thank You! I couldn’t agree more. I can’t believe that her rating was that high.
    I’d have given a lower score & many unkind words
    But, what choice do we have? The Dems offer far less leadership or fiscal understanding.
    A Third party is highly unlikely too.
