Those who believe in compassion need to think about what poor Sonny Perdue is going through right now. Here is an opportunist who jumped parties in 2000 going from Democrat to Republican. He probably has only a few friends in politics, those claiming to be his friend are mostly sycophants looking for favors from his office.
As the GOP looks to the future, Sonny Perdue has no role to play. He is not one of us. He vetoes tax cuts that weren’t written by his pet in the state house. He allowed spending to grow in Georgia by an outrageous amount. He spent $20,000,000 of our tax dollars to build boat ramps. Ask yourself how different is he from Jack Murtha?
No one likes Sonny, yet he still has the legal power of the office. So in his desperate effort to remain relevant to the future of the GOP what has he done?
He made a back-room deal to install Mark Burkhalter as Speaker, which was undone by Burkhalter’s past and an uprising of grassroots opposition
He decided to circumvent the primary process and install another of his pets as Secretary of State. Jim Cole wisely decided to back down after the grassroots and Peach Pundit took him and Sonny to task.
Not to be out done by the pesky bloggers, Sonny decided to do the exact same thing again and gave the job to Brian Kemp.
Sonny is stubborn and desperate to try and stay relevant in his last year in office. He’ll ignore the grassroots. He doesn’t need you, never cared about you, and thinks he knows better than you.
Don’t expect anything different this legislative session.
