Once again, the General Assembly makes us proud.
A resolution making President Barack Obama an honorary member of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus was blocked this week by Republicans who objected to the language.
State Rep. Austin Scott said he and other Republicans objected to wording that would have put the full chamber on record backing the resolution and its declaration of Obama as a man with an “unimpeachable reputation for integrity.”
These are the same Republicans who passed a resolution commending then-President Bush‘s response to Hurricane Katrina.
WHEREAS, it is fitting and proper that President Bush … and the others who are engaged in coping with this disaster be recognized for their outstanding and courageous service to the people of this nation.
