Doyle vetoes Ronald Reagan Highway

Gov. Jim Doyle vetoed legislation Wednesday that would have renamed U.S. Highway 14 the Ronald Reagan Highway.
The highway, which runs from the border of Illinois up to Madison, would have been christened with signs bearing Reagan’s name, using private funds to do so. In his veto address, Doyle argued that designating names for highways and bridges should be a tribute reserved only for Wisconsinites. The bill’s author, however, state Sen. Bob Welch, R-Redgranite, said Wisconsin should join the tradition of other states in honoring the former Republican president and criticized Doyle’s decision as “partisan” and “petty,” according to The Capital Times.

Doyle is the poster boy for partisan politics and his head-in-the-sand refusal to honor Ronald Reagan, one of the 20th Century's great leaders in appaling. Doyle has shown bad judgement at the highest level and has illustrated the pettiness so prevalent in today's Democratic party. Jim Doyle is not a true leader, he's a scoundrel of the first order.
