Gary Pearce today opines that Governor Perdue's over-ridden vetoes underscored her political weakness. I see it differently. I see her over-ridden vetoes as underscoring her political integrity ... her willingness to do the right thing in the face of reckless partisan opposition.
We're proud of you, Governor Perdue.
If the North Carolina legislature wasn't filled with a majority of corrupt thugs, the Governor's vetoes would have been sustained. That says a lot more about the North Carolina General Assembly than it does about the Governor.
