For over a week or so, now...we've been hearing bipartisan blogger cries for immediate repeal of the Abuser Fees. They've advocated the bombardment of all members of the General Assembly to hold a special session, and to pressure current pro-Abuser Fee delegates and senators into changing their position and opposing the Fees.
So Scott Lingamfelter saw the public's reaction, and changed his position due to this sudden and virulent backlash against the fees. Pretty much, the goal of the blogs to convince the pro-Fee politicians to change their minds was actually met in regards to Lingamfelter.
Immediately, the liberal blogs within the state jump on Lingamfelter and declare him a "flip-flopper", stated that he was simply trying to "save himself from losing" his reelection campaign, and generally derided him for changing his mind...which is what THEY wanted him to do in the first place!!!
If you want politicians to support your cause, don't criticize them when they do. Hypocrites...if anything, the liberal blogs should be blasting Democrats in the General Assembly for NOT recognizing what the people are demanding.
