You don't wait till nobody's watching to do the "right" thing
Posted by Jon Sanders at 6:25 PMThe actions by Gov. Bev Perdue leading up to and including her veto of the Health Care Protection Act are cowardly and reprehensible. Perdue lied about not vetoing the bill, presumably to set up this charade by which the attorney general, Roy Cooper, came up with his equally reprehensible "case" against the bill in order to give the governor a thin veneer of cover for "changing her mind" to veto the bill -- which she did, on a Saturday, farthest from the news cycle, and sure to be overshadowed by that evening's ACC basketball regular-season finale between Duke and UNC.
Perdue's stealth veto was well in keeping with the cowardly early-morning votes on the federal legislation the act sought to prevent North Carolinians from. By their very actions, Democrats voting for ObamaCare -- and working to deny the rights of their own citizens to keep them under its heel -- know what they did was wrong.
