Where’s the Support for the Gov. of Alaska Making Budget Cuts?

Pundits of a certain political persuasion love to complain about the trillions of dollars of federal debt, and how it’s a national crisis. I agree with them. Yet I’ve heard little support for Alaskan Gov. Mike Dunleavy, who made the news this year through some mild fiscal responsibility.
Meanwhile, opponents to the budget cuts have organized a recall effort against him. If they succeed, they’ll send a clear message to politicians that the American people won’t tolerate even a little fiscal restraint. And if that happens, no one will ever again think about reducing the federal debt.
So it’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out. Will the pundits who complain about debt put their words into action through support for Dunleavy? Will the recall effort against him succeed?
