the case for john bel edwards [View all]

i was crucified i "heartbear abortion" thread on this one, but i must defend my governor.

this is no surprise here. edwards ran as anti abortion, and barely won over bobby jindal’s chosen sucessor “diaper dave” vitter. there is no question that vitter, or jindal, or any louisiana republican would gleefully sign this or worse. any louisiana democrat outside orleans parish would sign this as well, but there are few elected democrats outside orleans parish and east baton rouge except edwards.

a veto of the bill would be over ridden. repubs have near supermajorities in the legislature, and most of the democrats are social conservatives including ministers. there are no moderate republicans. not on this issue.

edwards faces a jungle primary in october. he might come in second but maybe not. if he vetoes this bill he is certainly no better than third. in that case 2 conservative republicans (one congresscritter and one “businessman” )will have a runoff to see who can promise to be more incredibly conservative.

the place to defeat this is in the courts, until we can, with edwards’ leadership, build enough of a party to civilize this savage 3rd world frontier.

edwards has been good on economics (with no help ftom the legislature), he extended medicaid, and (against rabid opposition from the end timers) approved an optional “real id” we have had several natural disasters and a police shooting that could have been mich worse without adult leadership.

my final argument : john bel edwards does not appear to be corrupt. perhaps our first ever.
