That Mr. Hudak hasn't adjusted owes partly to his characteristic reluctance to abandon talking points once he has settled on them.
It's true - Hudak has a long track record of being obstinate. He's very consistent that way.
Clearly, for him, the strong survive - the strong hit hard, never waver, maintain traditions unbending.
Too bad Hudak's an economist, not a sociologist - were that the case, he might realize that in evolution, intransigence is a weakness. It's the ability to adapt that leads to survival.
