Bredesen: Liar, dunce, or just unprepared?

Brian Hornback, our esteemed Knox County Republican Chairman, has an entry at his blog about Governor Bredesen admitting to lack of managerial control in the executive branch of the State Government, and his calling of a special "ethics session" of the Tennessee General Assembly.

NOOOOO!!!! Why our public officials would never stoop so low!! (Yeah, right.)

I am having a terrible time deciding whether Phil Bredesen is

A.) A chronic liar

B.) A well-intentioned dunce (a la Jimmy Carter)


C.) Someone who was qualified but totally unprepared for the culture of corruption and waste that is endemic in Tennessee State politics.

Whether the right answer is A, B, or C, Bredesen is daily showing himself as unfit for the office of Governor of Tennessee.

Thanks for the compliment, I try to call it like I see it realizing that I am NOT seeing the whole picture from the inside, however, Bredesen appears to be letting the two speaker's (house and senate)call the shots.

I believe it is a combination of B and C. I really don't believe that he realized how bad the state capitol was before being elected, however, he is a miserable failure.

My position is that he is the highest elected democrat official in the state and should be taking the leading in cleaning the mess up.

You are quite right about his letting the two speakers take control. It speaks volumes to me, for example, that there is not a Republican Speaker of the Senate...

Bredesen IS the highest elected Dem...As governor, ideally, he is leader of all Tennesseans, Republican or Democrat. It is right that he should take the lead in cleaning up corruption...a REAL leader would want the people of Tennessee to have a competent government that they could trust.
