So, can I ask? RINO or opportunist?

Being a RINO is a condition that defines itself ~ just like being gay ~ you do it, you are gay.

Being a RINO is easy. First, you get yourself elected to public office ~ and you are not a Republican.

Then, you find that your avenue to higher office is stymied by (1) the Democrat bosses won't let you advance as fast as you'd like, or (2) you are a Independent (probably uniquely so in all American history) and you need a party affiliation to get that next higher office.

This guy decided he doesn't want to run as a Democrat, but he does want higher office so he's signed on with the Republicans.

He is, in fact, a RINO.

There are people who try to match up RINO with Liberal but that's simply a Koinkydink brought about by the times where the "less Liberal" Democrats have had to deal with power mad insanely intolerant Far Leftwingtard Democrat bosses. So, they jumped to the Republicans ~ they bring their Leftwingtard foolishness with them of course ~ but they are RINOs.

The days of the Conservative RINOS are over which is why I am opposed to offering any RINO the opportunity to take any Republican top position.

Robideaux may be different ~ I just don't know ~ but if he's a typical recent RINO he's a mind-numbed robot-like Leftwingtard as well. Still, he's probably not a COMBOT but that can't be ruled out. Someone better do a thorough examination of how this guy has been voting.

I’m not sure but the problem becomes all politicians who want to get elected from anywhere but the inner cities will declare themselves Republican in Louisiana. The difference between R and D in this state is much less pronounced that in other areas. Many D’s are socially conservative.
