An Invitation To Talk: Nothing More, Nothing Less

Apparently, this is quite the sinister letter.

It doesn't look like much to me, but the Republicans look at this and claim something quite forboding. The governor is coercing the legislature. He is using a power play to force them to the table.

Gosh, he even says that he "looks forward...to meet together."

How diabolical.

It would seem that the House Republicans think that everything is a conspiracy. That there is secondary and tertiary meanings behind everything written down.

The are not going to "fall" for it. They will be strong.

Well, it doesn't look too sinister to me. Dayton vetoed the legislative funding, sure. But for the one purpose of talking out some other differences. He signed the bills - he is forgoing a government shutdown. It is not an "or else" type letter. Just an invitation to talk.

But the House Republicans do not talk. They ultimatum. They threaten. They reneg. That is what they understand and they assume everybody does the same.

Get rid of the tin foil hats and have a cup of coffee with the governor.

What is the downside? You might agree on something?

Heaven forbid that thought.
