Cooper aims LOW at Folwell
You would think revelations that his transportation department is overspending by $2 billion and possibly broke the law would concern him. But we’re dealing with a guy who sat in the AG’s office for sixteen years doing absolutely nothing — stumbling into the governor’s office in 2016 thanks to all that midnight voting in The People’s Republic of Durham:
[…] The NCDOT defended the Secretary in an emailed statement.
“Secretary Trogdon is focused on continuing to deliver critical projects in every region of the state and implementing improvements to our internal processes to continue to improve what we do for the people of this state while operating within our cash window,” said the NCDOT in a statement to NSJ.
The Governor’s office didn’t respond to Folwell’s allegations but instead criticized Folwell.
“A financial lecture from the nation’s least effective state Treasurer, who boasts among the worst fiduciary return on investment and raised the cost of healthcare for state employees during his tenure, is not credible,” the governor’s office said in a statement.[…]
When it comes to finance, Dale Folwell is head-and-shoulders above Roy Cooper, Kristin, those daughters, and everybody in his office staff and on the mansion staff COMBINED.
When folks respond to serious, detailed allegations with basically ‘nanny, nanny boo-boo’ — you pretty much KNOW you’ve GOT them. Even the brain trust on NC Spin hit the governor’s office’s response with such adjectives as ‘infantile,’ ‘immature’ and ‘childish.’
One would hope that serious questions about the handling of the people’s money would warrant something a little more serious than political tit-for-tat. But look at what we’ve got to deal with in that big house on Blount Street (for at least one more year). There’s nothing TO Roy Cooper. He is a creation — a by-product of his political handlers. Nothing more.
It’s a real black mark on the NCGOP leadership that this guy hasn’t been (a) exposed as the buffoonish fraud he is, and (b) reduced to a pile of jello by now.

The last sentence says it all
When is Forest going to get rid of that silly slogan from a 25-year old movie and start kicking the shit out of Cooper?
If we had a Conservative NCGOP with a real backbone, Cooper would be eviscerated on a daily basis, as the Progressives did with gusto to former Governor McCrory. America has become a nation of wimps. President Trump shows us how to deal with the Left on a daily basis. You’d think that the GOP leadership in Raleigh and DC would have followed his lead by now. They are still fuming over us hicks who refused to vote for their man Jeb. MAGA
Your typical Republican politician in Raleigh or Washington is afraid of his own shadow. Most Republican appointees are afraid of their shadow. Donald Trump is virtually the only Republican today willing to fight the Radical Left. Before Trump, it was Jesse Helms who had to stand alone on the Senate floor time and time again. It’s a sad state of affairs and ultimately a GOP with no backbone will cease to exist as a viable national party. It’s just a matter of time.
Response to Eric, I agree it is just a matter of time until N.C. and our country goes down the drain unless we can find leadership like Dale Falwell to stand up to the EXTREMISTS on the other side, our spokespeople are not strong enough to take them on!!!!
Coopers a goober!
I agree with Ron–NC Republicans have gone as soft as the Washington Swamp Republicans…and just as stupid. Handing the NC Supreme Court to the Radical Democrats on a silver platter has to be the biggest act of political malpractice in American political history.
You can thank a number of district chairs for that, who like the status quo just fine and aren’t the least bit interested in advancing a conservative agenda. The Herculean and illegal measures that they undertook, specifically credentialing committee tampering, to keep conservative Jim Womack from taking the State chairmanship, testify to that.
I agree with all.
I’m rallying behind Dale Folwell.
Also, have to recognize that with all that has happened in recent years, we sadly can’t accurately call the N.C. Republican Party a conservative party. Things are getting unfixable.
