My take on Doyle

Recently Gov. Doyle has been making the news quite a bit. A few days ago I saw him on WISN 12 News where he stated that he didn't make stems cells political, he is just responding to Mark Green. That is an intersting statement considering this website of his.

"By sharing your personal story about how stem cell research affects your life you will help us spread our message across Wisconsin. Many of your stories will be posted on and others will be shared in future stem cell research discussions."

If you go to you'll find this as the text:
Keeping Wisconsin the Stem Cell Leader
Since University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor James Thomson first isolated a stem cell line eight years ago, Wisconsin has led the nation in stem cell research.

This critical research offers families the hope that one day diseases like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and juvenile diabetes may be cured.

As Governor, I've set a clear goal: capture 10 percent of the stem cell market. Nationwide, the stem cell market could create 100,000 jobs and generate $10 billion - by 2015. Read the rest of Governor Doyle's letter . . .

It's interesting how he didn't make this issue political but yet all of the main text on his homepage is about stem cells.

Today on WRJN (a local radio station) I heard about Doyle asking the Regents to keep tuition down in the UW system. After allowing tuition to be raised 65% in the past few years he now wants it kept down? The timing is more than suspicious. This is obviously another political stunt and Doyle will forget about keeping tuition down as soon as he is re-elected.

The one thing I'm really mad about is that I pay all the tuition Doyle raised and I still havn't gotten my state contract.
