Ok, N&O: Which one is it?



N&O reporter John Frank may be in danger of losing his job.  He breaks the news about Boss Bev’s “suspend the elections” fantasy, and now he is contradicting in-house wonderboy Rob Christensen.  In the N&O newsroom, EVERYONE knows it is verboten to report something that makes The Democrat Party or Wonderboy Rob look bad.   (Some might argue that policy leaves you very little to write about.)

On Sunday, we were treated to a Christensen-authored pronouncement entitled “Dems Turn It Around.”   Today, we get a different take on the same subject authored by Frank in “Under The Dome”:

Since November 2008, when Barack Obama won by 14,177 votes on his way to the White House, Democrats have lost voters in 97 of North Carolina’s 100 counties and relinquished control of the state legislature for the first time in more than a century. …

From the numbers I’ve seen, it appears two of the three counties looking good for the Dems are Wake (Raleigh) and Mecklenburg (Charlotte).  Wake is loaded with government employees and university types.  Free-thinking, right-minded private sector workers are fleeing the crime, congestion,  taxes, and regulations in both locations for greener, saner pastures.  Conveniently, both of those locations were central to Christensen’s thesis about a Democrat comeback.
