Phil Bryant hypocrisy watch for 3-13-2012

Very interesting tidbit from a press release sent out by Gov. Phil Bryant (R) today:
"Gov. Phil Bryant today reestablished by his first Executive Order the Mississippi Military Communities Council. The council will promote Mississippi’s military missions at the national level and advise Gov. Bryant and legislative officials on actions that could potentially impact the missions and Mississippi communities that support military operations." - March 13, 2012 Phil Bryant Press Release (link)
Compare that to this excerpt from Gov. Bryant's State of the State last month:
"Currently in Mississippi, there are more than 150 Boards and Commissions that were often created when we could not make a decision on a difficult subject and appointed a committee to study the problem. Good people serve on these committees and boards but the purpose of many has been exhausted and their existence should be reviewed. Tonight, I am asking Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, who has the statutory authority to record each appointment, review the necessity of these boards and commissions and offer recommendations to the executive and legislative branches on possible termination or consolidation of our boards and commissions. Any final decision would obviously rest with the Legislature but I trust Secretary Hosemann to help vet these recommendations before we take action." - January 24, 2012 Phil Bryant State of the State (link)
