Thurston Howell III
So a coup d' etat is when the duly elected governor of a state, supported by a majority of both houses of the state legislature, proposes a work-rule change for state government workers?Wow. I guess you aren't worried about watering down a term used to describe violent, forceful siezure of government power, absent any election or democratic processes. And let me get this straight: Its "progressive" and "democratic" when a president and Congress, on the slimmest of majorities, takes over 1/6th of the ecomomy, mandates people by insurance, and calls it health care reform, despite popular opposition to the bill ranging from 55 - 65 percent of the public, while at the same time its a "coup d'etat" when a governor, backed by strong majorities in the state legislature as well as having popular support statewide, proposes a relatively minor change in state employee compensation arrangements? Methinks thou dost protest too much.
RK:As we speak, I am working with the Republicans and Democrats and trying to strike a compromise. I'm trying to get the Republicans to stop recalling all the Democrats and I'm trying to get the Democrats to stop recalling all the Republicans.I don't thinks it's going to work, unless I flee to Florida.
