DAG McCrory ignores the obvious on unemployment debt

Spot the logical fallacy in this argument:

Leading up to the recession, many states cut the employment taxes that support the trust funds, leaving them ill-equipped to deal with the growth in joblessness that followed.

“I will not outsource these tough decisions,” McCrory said. “This bipartisan solution will protect our small businesses from continued over-taxation (and) ensure our citizens’ unemployment safety net is secure and financially sound for future generations.”

That's right. Not only did he fail to mention the tax cuts that brought about this current debt problem, McCrory's reference to "continued over-taxation" is an attempt to rewrite history to a version where those tax cuts never happened. Figuring out whether this attempt is intentional or not will only serve one purpose: to determine if we have a liar or an idiot for a Governor. There is no third option.

Liar or idiot?

The third option is "both."

Not a very good liar, but a very useful idiot in the service of Governor Pope.

This is true

He's not a very good liar, which is one of the few possibly redeeming qualities he has left. The words just tumble out with little semblance to normal conversation, outside of a daycare center, that is.

And when he does sign this two-wheeled abortion bill, I have a feeling his explanation will verge on the incomprehensible.
