What is dimwitted is to take verbatim the crap put out by the media. If you think that a popular mayor and then governor in a swing state is not a target for the media a full four years out, then you are slow.
Same goes for the other side of the aisle. Hillary is now the target for Pubs and they will use every opportunity ot overblow anything she does. Politicians love folks that lap up what they put out. Truth is just a good soldier who himself, ironically, has probably never voted for anyone but a Dem. I have voted for Dems, Pubs, Independents and then skipped races because I hated both.
Dont be fooled by the media campaigns. Some here loved McCrory in real life, but as soon as he was elected and before even taking office, they bought in to the fact that he was just short of a child molestor. Dim witted indeed
Some of what you are saying I totally agree with. At the same time these guys have brought a lot, actually most of this on themselves with their actions and words.
I voted for McCrory and was pulling for him to do well. It is unfortunate that he has already lost my vote and is unlikely to get it back.
It is a fact that instituting a voter ID law which ironically is the highest form of voter fraud is going to cost taxpayers millions of dollars to fix a non existent problem.
It is a fact that they declined an estimated 500 million dollars in new revenue, 20,000 new jobs, and left a large number of North Carolinians without health insurance they would otherwise have my not expanding medicaid.
It is a fact that tens of thousands of people are now without unemployment benefits
It is a fact that we are the only state that doesn't qualify for federal unemployment insurance.
It is a fact that they will have spent 600 million dollars in tax breaks without paying for it.
This isn't just media activism. Which by the way is the easy way out that is always taken by Republicans. It is what is happening by their legislation.
