#ncpol: ‘Did I say ”EMINENT domain”? Gosh, I meant INTIMATE.’

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Tom Campbell introduced us to the term ‘intimate domain’ on this weekend’s edition of NC Spin.  We, of course, knew what he meant to say. But there are a lot of politicians this very minute running like hell from the very…

#ncpol: Polling, press releases & pabulum. N&O laziness extends from NC-02 over to NC-07.

Young Mr. Campbell has apparently learned well from Jedi master Rob. *Why bother making calls and digging when someone has already pretty much written the story for you?* “Rep. Rouzer: Poll shows GOP opponent doesn’t have much support” is the headline that screams at us…

#ncpol NC-07: Rouzer applauds, then runs from CSX’s JoCo land grab

It should not come as a shock to anyone that a politician (1) takes a position, and then (2) runs like hell from it.  But doing it so blatantly – and so close to an important election — will earn special recognition from us. We…

#ncpol NC-07: Mr. Rouzer, I do believe your pants are on fire.

It’s a shame that outright bald-faced lies are so plentiful in politics.  Occasionally, though, some lies surface that are so outrageous that we just have to highlight them for our dear readers. A few months back, some Members of Congress sent the following letter to…

#nc-07: Former NCGOP official primarying Rouzer

For Mark Otto, his decision to challenge rookie congressman David Rouzer is both business AND personal:  […] “Conservative voters are finding our stockings stuffed with coal this Christmas, courtesy of Nancy Pelosi, Paul Ryan and the establishment Republicans in congress. […] I feel completely betrayed. Despite…

#NC-07: Rouzer needs to read The Constitution TOO!

Dingbat disease is spreading from the Second Congressional District over to the Seventh.  We wrote earlier about Renee Ellmers’s mind-blowing defense of TPA and TPP.   It appears David Rouzer is headed down that same path: “Passing TPA is critical to reestablishing and asserting American…

NC-07: “Our girl” gets all up in somebody else’s business

Renee Ellmers is the queen of plain ol’ dumb luck. THIS video helped her sneak by an entrenched incumbent in a Democrat district in 2010.  The video was a political gift from God, but Ellmers balked at commenting on it, or using it in any…

The Pilot: pushing far-left talking points, telling half of the story, and mocking the few readers it has left

You have to just LOVE Yankees who move down here and chastise us for not being more like the morally and fiscally-bankrupt blue states they fled. Steve Bouser, The Pilot’s minister of propaganda overseeing the paper’s op-ed pages, is a textbook example of just such antics. …

NC’s 7th CD race: lobbyist parties, the death of a controversy, and an incumbent who lives in NC-8 (Oh, my)

    In May,  Illario Pantano of New Hanover County — the 2010 GOP nominee for this congressional race — and state Senator David Rouzer (R-Johnston) will face off for the privilege of taking on incumbent Democrat congressman Mike McIntyre in November. McIntyre, who has…

Congressman McIntyre: Barry who?

Mike McIntyre (D-Lumberton) has represented North Carolina’s 7th District  since 1996.  He’s voted for Democrats for Speaker, but has still managed to get campaign contributions from Republicans in the district.  McIntyre pretty much votes with his caucus, but sides with the Republicans on key issues…
