Respect for Inouye?

Faleomavaega has told Samoa News that if the governor and Lolo want to raise the cabotage issue with U.S. Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, chairman of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committtee "they are more than welcome to do so, but I have too much respect for the Senator to put him in such a predicament."

He said he doesn't want to put Inouye in a position of having to choose to give American Samoa a waiver at the expense of putting one of Hawaii's carriers (Hawaiian Air) at risk.

As he acknowledges, getting a change in cabotage would be very difficult. Given his track record, we'd say impossible. But we had to chuckle at his talk of "respect" for Inouye. Where was the respect when Inouye asked Eni not to move forward on his resolution on Japanese World War II comfort women? Eni ignored the senator's plea and the measure passed the full House yesterday on a voice vote.
