GOP leaders must fight the good fight

Our current elected Republicans need to realize that gloves are off when it comes to the opposition party. They freely admit that they are going to resist any/all efforts from the right. The party that screamed about obstructionism a short while ago has no problem with it now. Bipartisan efforts are only necessary when it comes to their agenda. This is an outright war, so the Republican leadership needs to treat it as such.

I attended the May 4 Manatee County commissioners’ review meeting for the Aqua by the Bay project in order to get a firsthand feel for the proposed development. Because of the overflow crowd, I had to view the presentation from the fourth floor overflow area. While waiting for proceedings to begin, I was surprised that every single person I talked to was against the project proposal.
