Bad Idea, Wisconsin GOP

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Mar• 03•11

Associated Press is reporting that Wisconsin senate Republicans are planning a procedural move that could result in the return by force of the 14 truant senate Democrats from Illinois.  Sounds like an awful idea.  The Republicans are in the right as of now — the senate Democrats should be in Wisconsin performing their sworn constitutional duty as elected officials, not hiding out to prevent legislative quorum — but dragging them back against their will will, in my opinion, be widely viewed as Republican zealotry. The GOP governor and legislators have the moral high ground as is. They will forfeit it if they do this.   I still say they should wait ’em out.
