This obvious case of sour grapes isn't surprising. After all Bosma is the same legislator who called a discrimination amendment "the most important part of the people's business," although when I confronted him about it he retracted his statement. After all, it's hard to claim it's so important when none have happened. Surging crime rates, property tax increases, Hoosier healthcare possibilities, economic development and full day kindergarten all seem to be more important to the average Hoosier, but not in Bosmaworld.
And the saddest part of all of this? He's not even a true believer. This is all about politics to Bosma - even members of his staff that I've spoken to will admit as much! I had to laugh when I read in the Star article:
"This is a symbolic vote of politics, not of setback," said House Minority Leader Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis. "The Democrat leader had a specific political agenda here and made it happen despite his promise to the contrary."
Bauer had an agenda? I'm sorry, Brian, but your hyperbole is showing...
