Pat McCrory’s Mitt Romney Impersonation

          It looks like the scheme by North Carolina Democrats to split conservatives from Pat McCrory  is well-underway.  The North Carolina Democrat Party has launched a parody site raising questions about McCrory.  Now,  reliably leftist Chris Fitzsimon, who works for reliably…

NC Legislators end union shakedown of teachers; Democrats & media throw major fit

  On the N&O’s front page, there was a full color photo of some large, angry Hillary Clinton lookalikes from the NC Association of Educators (NCAE) holding signs  that said “We will not be silenced.” (I pity their poor husbands.) The N&O posted a video…

An interesting way for conservatives to send McCrory & co. a message

So far, it looks like ol’ Pat has no primary competition, and everyone is being told to go ahead and get on board with Team McCrory for November.  I remember, earlier in the year in a town near Wilmington, a group of business people —…

Waiting on Howard

  Howard Coble, the Republican congressman representing North Carolina’s Sixth District,  appears to be playing the part of Hamlet here at the end of 2011.  Fresh off of hospital stays in DC and Greensboro, the congressional delegation’s senior member says he can’t make up his…

Recipe for 2012 GOP gubernatorial victory missing key ingredients

The three modern day successes for the NCGOP in governor’s races came in 1972, 1984, an 1988. What do those three years have in common? A Republican presidential candidate cruising to victory.  Nixon was stomping McGovern in 1972, and Reagan was doing the same to…

A Charlotte conservative’s POV on Pat McCrory

    The Pat McCrory “campaign” encourages us to talk to the people of Charlotte — the people who know him best — about his record. So, I dug up a couple of very interesting old columns from Charlotte Observer columnist Tom Ashcraft. ( Ashcraft…

NC Democrats offer peek at plan to divide conservatives, McCrory

  The North Carolina Democrat Party realizes they have a sorry record and sorry gubernatorial and presidential candidates to present to the state’s voters in November 2012.  So, they are resorting to pointing out the flaws in their opponents — primarily targeting former Charlotte mayor…

Why does NCGOP keep giving the AG’s race a pass?

  Every four years we see the same phenomenon in The Tar Heel State: a gaggle of GOP gubernatorial wannabees, followed by a bunch of also-rans lower down the ticket for Council of State races.  North Carolina has one of the weakest governors in the…

Is The Tea Party brewing a primary challenge to McCrory in 2012?

    The alleged mainstream media and the Raleigh Ruling Class have already crowned Pat McCrory the next governor of North Carolina.  Just like their other favorite Mitt Romney, Pat has shown off his purty hair and his great smile, but has said and done…
