Another contradictory message from the Senate leader

A few weeks ago, GOP legislative leaders were lambasting Governor Perdue for criticizing the Senate version of the budget before she had thoroughly reviewed every detail. Now, they’re sending the opposite message.

This morning, Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger called on Goveror Perdue to act right away on the 343 page. $19+ billion budget that he and his colleagues sent to her all of three days ago.  

Come on, Senator make up your mind — do you want the Guv to give the darned thing a thorough review or not? The Constitution gives her 10 days to consider the matter and frankly, that seems like a pretty short window to consider a matter of such momentous importance.

Anyway, what’s the rush? Could it be that the R’s are not really quite so sure that they’ll be able to override a  gubernatorial veto as they profess to be?
