second thoughts, eh?

Arizona GOP governor reverses course after Betsy Ross flag controversy, now 'welcomes' Nike facility
[thehill.com]

A little more than a week after pulling state incentives from Nike following its decision to pull its Betsy Ross Flag shoes after former NFL star Colin Kaepernick raised issues around them, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) reversed his stance.

Ducey tweeted Thursday welcoming a Nike facility to Goodyear, Ariz., saying the company will bring more than 500 jobs and $184 million to the state.

Ducey was one of many conservatives to publicly blast Nike and announced he would instruct the state to pull financial incentives for Nike after the company decided not to fully release a Betsy Ross flag sneaker.

Maybe Nike can make some flip flops and call them the Ducey.

This is smart thinking... Fox certainly reported that the gov spanked Nike, but does anyone think Fox will report THIS?

A twitter-attention-span public has no interest in the meaning of "flip-flopping." That ship has sailed.
