Win­ston’s RNC vote, anal­ogy off base

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

I take is­sue with both Brax­ton Win­ston’s re­cent vote on the RNC and his anal­ogy de­fend­ing it. De­cid­ing at the last minute not to sup­port a months-long city ef­fort to se­cure the RNC is not like walk­ing out of a restau­rant be­cause you don’t like the menu. In­stead, it is like invit­ing some­one into your home for din­ner, then get­ting mad at them for things you have known about them all along, and then telling them to leave as they ar­rive on your front porch.

Op­pos­ing the RNC com­ing here should have been done when our lead­ers de­cided to pur­sue the event. Pulling the rug out from un­der the RNC would have been a class­less, re­gret­table lack of com­mit­ment to our col­lec­tive word, not sud­denly de­cid­ing we did not like a menu.
