Doug Gross at the AP is running the annual no room for conservatives at the statehouse story. Didn’t we get this same story in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006?
You know how it goes — conservatives may have gotten the GOP elected, but the GOP is going to stick it to them and not pursue conservative agenda items other than school reform, tax form, bureaucratic reforms, election reforms, and other conservative items that aren’t to be considered conservative for purposes of this article because they aren’t at the top of the agenda for the Christian Coalition.
Basically, as in prior years, the article comes down to the legislature not pursuing abortion issues so therefore they aren’t pursuing a conservative agenda. No, they’ll be pursuing a more libertarian agenda, i. e. fiscally conservative issues, just not socially conservative issues.
