Tuesday Twitter roundup

Time for a friendly reminder:

Even though the courts have stepped in and reinstated out-of-precinct voting, it's still less than ideal. Unless I'm mistaken, those are cast as provisional votes, meaning the local BoE can give them a thumb's up (or down). Check your registration and fix it while you can.

McCrory's incompetence on display over Jaguar gaffe

Talk about a short attention span:

Gov. Pat McCrory tells the crowd about a secret meeting he had in England a year and a half ago with auto execs from Jaguar and Land Rover, where they took him to a pub in Stratford to “not talk business.”

“I don’t really drink at all, but I was taking a few sips and they were just downing it,” he says to laughter. And after several hours, they wanted to talk business – asking him why they shouldn’t move their jobs to Mexico. He realized the competition was no longer just Virginia, South Carolina and Tennessee. North Carolina is competing against the rest of the world, he says. And we ultimately lost that bid to Poland, he says.

The reason they were "just downing it" is because they were never really serious about building an auto manufacturing plant in North America. As usual, McCrory was just being used by more powerful people to help them get what they want. And if our Governor had been that interested in their final decision, he would know that Poland ended up losing the deal to Slovakia:

Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't:

Former President Bill Clinton will be in Raleigh on Friday, but he’ll be here for meetings and fundraisers that aren’t open to the public. A post on Hillary Clinton’s campaign website on Wednesday said Bill Clinton planned to “discuss the pipeline from college to full-time employment.” The post didn’t include further details but provided a link for supporters to sign up to attend.

The post was deleted Wednesday night. A Clinton campaign spokesman said Thursday that the visit from Bill Clinton would be “for fundraising events and political meetings.”

In the wake of all the complaints about Bubba being on the front pages of newspapers during the Convention, why should we be surprised (or upset) when he takes a behind-the-curtains profile? I realize the really juicy stories are released around close of business on Friday, but come on.
