Re: “Gov. McCrory disses the Senate budget and the Dix Park do-over. Is it a new day in Raleigh?

Until I see something more, I am going to assume that all the Repubs in the legislature are using the shock and aww tactic. The shock part is that they all push and pass the craziest laws they can so long as they line their pockets in the process with zero regard to the impact on the state, then McRory talks about compromise for a few minutes and everyone who isn't paying attention to what's really happening says "aww" because he appears normal by comparison.

McCrory is a puppet for Art Pope in the same sense that Bush Jr. was a puppet for Cheney. Even if we ousted all these tea-bagging fools on the next election cycle, the damage to the economy, public services, and our environment will not be so easily cleaned up. Thus begins the cycle of Republican opportunism. Make a mess, complain about the budget when Democrats try to clean your mess. Damage our government intentionally and then sell folks on the idea that government is dysfunctional.

Do you remember when the biggest scandal was our state officials taking weekend trips to Asheville on our tax dollars? I do. Now I just hope my home's drinking water stays potable in the face of completely unregulated frackapalooza.
