    I am not saying conservative position, I am saying HIS position. Again nothing was wrong with what he did or the state did. I just find it funny.

    Thanks you. You have restored my faith.

You are saying he shouldn't have accepted money from the state, even though it would have made his company less competitive (if that was possible) just because of his stance? No business minded person would do that.
    That really isn't the point. His statements in the past condemned others for this very thing. That's the crux of this.

    This IS the point. He can condemn all he wants, but as a business man, he would be a fool not to accept it while it is there. You can be against unemployment benefits, but if you are unemployed and they are there, are you not going to take them?

    That is his position, but the reason why I am not all angry about it and find it rather amusing than that he is a hypocrite because he does state this as well.

    I will tell you that the growth of our company 38 Studios is government doing -- gone right. I watched the speaker of the House who is a Democrat in Rhode Island adamantly push to create this job guarantee program, this job creation program along with Republicans and independents to do right by the people. When you have politicians, I don't care which side of the aisle they're from --
    So the man does see some good with government involvement and I expect him to honor what he owes Rhode Island. It was just funny hearing him campaining for Scott Brown and then seeing this. If Schilling knew how expensive what he wanted to do was, I think he would have gone about things differently.

    Is this a joke ? There is no contradiction. The GOP, and Conservatives in general, fully understand the concept of tax breaks, loans etc. to attract business. GOP Governors do it everywhere.

    Try again. Or maybe the libs are full of themselves all over again.

    The man thinks too much money is going into government and it is hurting his business, but then gets a loan from Rhode Island using tax payers money. He made a good business investment, but the state of Rhode Island trying to get more business did a not so good business decision. You have to admit it is a little funny.

    By the way, Schilling, nor his ideology, did anything wrong here. Rhode Island made the mistake and apparently the only person who believed so was the governor who campaigned against it.
