When Gov. Butch Otter spoke to the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee in Washington, D.C., this week, he wanted to make a point about how little wilderness means to his home state.
“There are more people in one day, probably, that play golf on the floating green in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, than visit the Frank Church-River of No Return (Wilderness) in a year,” Otter told the committee. “And that’s just a par 3.”Read more: http://www.idahostatesman.com/2011/03/03/1549713/otters-wilderness-math-doesnt.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+IdahostatesmancomNewsUpdates+%28IdahoStatesman.com+News+Updates%29&utm_content=Netvibes#ixzz1FXvA66Dl
Now someone has to look into depth, such other statements Otter has made - Like his position on Wolves - and reexamine the efficacy of the Statements. Is he ignorant, just plain dumb or financially driven by big dollar supporters
If I were The Idaho Statesman - I would probably do a study of everything Otter has supported in the last 4 years (maybe 8) and get a reality check on this baboon before we let him go to Washington, again, and embarrass an entire way of Life and the Grand State of Idaho. We don't want to turn into another "Arizona!"
