I have known Butch Otter for a long time, and I always thought he did a pretty good job as governor, but I’ve changed my mind since he started acting like Obama.
They both now feel they can ignore the Constitution that they pledged to uphold. With his latest veto, since slot machines are against the law in Idaho, what is going to stop every bar, restaurant, church and grocery store in the state from insisting they have the right to put in slot machines?
What with this and the actions of his close friend “Mike” recently, he seems to be slipping into being an average politician.
