'You're probably talking to a Democrat'

May 22nd, 2013
By

The Hawaii Republican Assembly, a conservative faction of the state GOP, on Wednesday poked the state lawmakers who have referred to the new state budget as "fiscally conservative."
While the conservatives aimed their barbs at majority Democrats, they know that minority Republicans in the state House, who have joined House Speaker Joseph Souki's leadership coalition, have also praised the budget agreement as fiscally sound.
Many conservatives are uncomfortable about the House Republicans' decision to band together with Democrats, including some of the most liberal Democrats in the chamber, since it could make it difficult for Republican candidates to distinguish themselves from Democrats during the 2014 elections.
From HIRA:
(Block quote) Recently, our Democrat dominated state legislature just unanimously adopted what most are calling, a "fiscally conservative" budget.
Fiscally conservative?!?!?
If anyone tells you that the Democrats' new budget was fiscally conservative, you're probably talking to a Democrat. (end block quote)

    Funny! Not being able to distinguish themselves from Democrats will likely be a good thing IMHO. Besides they should vote for the budget if it's good for the state, not for partisan political motivation.

    DINOs should be paid in 30 pieces of silver.
    Next election they won't get voted in by Democrats.

    The right talking to their lefts hand.

    So did these seven alleged "Republicans" in the State House each get a box of donuts in exchange for looking the other way at the giant increase in the state budget that they all voted for? What's the point of even being Republican if voters can't tell the difference? How could these seven who consider this new budget to be "fiscally conservative" possibly be of any help to taxpayers over the remaining 18 months of their terms in office when they just decided to collectively ignore all the government waste right under their noses? Auwe. It appears that House Speaker Joe Souki is the new de facto chairman of the Hawaii Republican Party.
