Pat left out one little detail

Pat trumpets a (welcome) groundbreaking for a (welcome) announcement of a significant number of actual, real, high-paying, new jobs (unlike his other attempts to tout jobs, most of which are small in number, not actual, not real, not high-paying or not new):

This one is a genuine accomplishment.

The little detail that Pat omitted is that it's Bev Perdue's accomplishment.


Governor McPhoto Op...

....will stand before the cameras, smile and quietly assume all the credit. Those questioning it will be called libruls and Dumocrats and history will once again be changed....

And then he also says

His obligatory stupid remarks:

  1. He's some sort of victim ("the press really went after me on that one, but that's all right, I guess");
  2. The cronies he's surrounded himself with are amazing ("Sharon Decker used to work for Mr. Pope, that's how good she is!" , "Aldona Wos is superhuman, she's a goddess, a saint and a miracle worker" , "I have the best cabinet EVER in the history of the universe!"
  3. Foot pain ("that stepped on lots of folks' toes!", "that stepped on Demmycrats and Publican toes!"

"What I see from the folks who are opposing our agenda is whining coming from losers." -- Thom Tillis

One other missing detail

The $100 million in corporate welfare to MetLife, paid for by NC taxpayers. Or, one could call it a bribe.


The measure of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little. - FDR

It's a bribe. Yep.

It's a bribe. Yep.
