We were on the road yesterday to and from Raleigh while The Guv was stamping these new vetoes on bad bills, but we'll echo the praise today for Perdue's decision to stand up and fight back against the extreme agenda of the new Republican majority in the General Assembly.
Talking to other progressives at the protest rally in Raleigh yesterday, I heard again what we have all heard before, that Gov. Perdue has warned Democratic activists that "I won't veto everything that the Republicans pass." All of us were asking the same question: "Why the hell not?" So far those vetoes are holding. If there are any good ideas in those bills, let the majority delete the bullshit and bring back the okay stuff without the dross.
And by the way ... just wondering where the NC Democratic Party was yesterday. They weren't where anyone could see them on this voter ID law.
The Progressive Pulse has a round-up of other reactions to the two new vetoes here.
