Writes RINOglican Apologist Avik Roy at NRO:
Conservatives who criticize Daniels for his stance on the right-to-work legislation remind me a bit of liberals who called Obama a coward for abandoning the public option in 2010. Obama said often that single-payer health care was his preferred approach, but that he simply didn’t have the votes for it in the Senate. Daniels is, unfortunately, in a similar position in Indiana.

This is truly the funniest thing I have seen regarding the flee-bagging senators from my state.

I didn’t expect to… Read more »

Again – point isn’t even about RTW or any of their other legislation.
It’s about capitulation to those who would willingly bring their own state to a grinding halt, if they don’t get their way.
They’re wrong for doing it – he’s wrong for letting it work.

So, going with the analogy, is there is hope that a young and unknown Scipio Africanus is watching this disaster?
[img[/img] [img[/img] [img[/img] [img[/img] That’s right. Since 1963 only three states have enacted right to work laws. No state, having enacted right to work, has ever returned to the closed union shop fold. Realizing this, starting the mid-1960’s unions and the Democratic party have spared no effort to defeat states attempting to enact right to work laws. In the past… Read more »
