There will be plenty for the nation's governors to talk about this weekend when they hold their winter meeting here in Washington. Some Republican chief executives are expressing reservations about taking money from the Democratic president's stimulus package. Correspondent Jonathan Serrie talked with one of them today. "Ok, this 690,000, we're gonna…" South Carolina's Mark Sanford along with the governors of Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Idaho and Alaska, is considering turning some of the money down. "What's at stake is that which has created wealth in this country for 200 years. The capitalistic system that we have is not perfect, but it is much better than so many other systems around the globe." While the stimulus package has enjoyed support from some GOP governors, including Florida's Charlie Crist who actively campaigned for the $787 billion bill two weeks ago when President Obama traveled to Fort Myers, Florida, other Republican governors think the money might actually hurt them by expanding programs they won't be able to afford to continue once the stimulus money is spent, and that would fly in the face of the Republican ideal of smaller government. "The problem with the Republican brand as I see it is that we've campaigned as conservatives but governed a different way. And you think about a John Deere tractor, people buy John Deere tractors because they do what they say they're gonna do." But critics suggest such a political stand ignores the needs of constituents. "This is about the governor's political ideologies, not about anything that has to do with serving the people of South Carolina." Democratic Majority Whip James Clyburn passed an amendment to the stimulus package, allowing state legislatures to request the federal funds directly. Political science professor Blease Graham of the University of South Carolina says this forces Governor Sanford to compromise. "I think the governor is smart enough to realize that he has to give a little bit on ideology or principle. What I might say that a person of principle can find a principle in anything, but at certain points principles give way to reality. " While voicing opposition to the plan, South Carolina's governor at no time has said he would flat-out refuse any federal stimulus funds if he even has a choice in the matter. Sanford and other governors will spend the upcoming days sifting through the 1,200 page document to determine which funds they can control. In Columbia, South Carolina, Jonathan Serrie, FOX News.
