Pawlenty Bait and Switch

It's not that TPaw can't do math, it is inherent in the extreme Right Wing not to understand simple arithmetic. Even ScaifeNet equates a few pennies to signing checks, but this is ridiculous.

The Governor was on record saying:
[DFL legislative leaders] can either join me in figuring how will get to $825 [million] or I’ll do it myself.”
But it turns out he didn't really mean $825 million, he meant $717 Million. Ironically, $70 million of it was a provision he helped craft and supported, or so he lead us to believe:
Jaws dropped in the second floor offices of the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners as news of the veto of Central Corridor spread.

"It makes no sense," said Comissioner Victoria Reinhardt, after several seconds of silence after a Pioneer Press reporter informed her of the veto. After confirming the news with a county lobbyist, she continued. "It was his proposal to begin with. We did everything he asked for. We reached consensus. So he vetoes himself?"
When will people learn that you can't believe a word out of a typical Republican's mouth, cause what they say, what they mean, and what is the actual truth can all be completely different things.
