OK, so let me get this straight...
Gov. Rell said she hated the budget passed by large majorities in the State House and Senate, but she refused to veto it.
Then Gov. Rell said she'd get rid of all those items she considered "pork" by using the line item veto. Then she didn't do it.
So, Jodi wanted to abstain from being responsible for any part of the budget, even without doing a single thing within her power to change it.
I'm reminded of a lyric from the classic Rush tune Freewill:
"If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice."
Apparently, she chose mediocrity.
Really, is there anything that Governor Relic still likes about the job, besides marching in parades and opening shopping centers?
(...and while I was never a major Rush fan by any means, it's kind of cool to see that Geddy Lee can still rock out. Must be because of that great health care they have in Canada!)
