Sanford delivers "economic good news"

"economic windfall" for Palmetto State
Governor to save a ton of money on his car insurance

B & P News - Columbia

Despite having a the second-highest unemployment rate in America, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford expressed optimism Wednesday about an economic boon that could jump-start his sagging approval rating and his bid for re-election in the June GOP primary.

“I know a lot of people, particularly unemployed ones, get depressed about the state’s floundering, forty-ninth ranked economy,” said Sanford in a press conference. “But I’m here to deliver some terrific financial news: I just saved a ton of money on my car insurance by switching to GEICO.”

Economic analysts question whether the savings of around 15% or more - the result of a 15-minute call from the Governor’s Office - will translate to any sort of tangible benefit to the state’s economy. Sanford says that the insurance savings prove that he is doing an adequate job as governor, despite his "Achilles heel" of "leadership, the economy, and education."

“Perhaps I’m not a great governor, or a good governor, or even one of the top 47 governors in the country,” said Sanford. “But I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.”

That is great photo editing. Love the work ya'll do with creating the visuals, as well as the witty stories.

But when it comes to price, my insurance provider kicks GEICO's butt!

In light of the area's ongoing debates over education priorities and joblessness due to outsourcing, I thought some of you might like to read this article. The comments provide a useful discussion with further insight into the arguments on both sides of the issues.
