The folks at the Locke Foundation are taking shots at Governor Beverly Perdue for her upcoming trade trip to China, telling ABC11 News that the trip is a dog and pony show and a waste of money.

What the story didn’t bother to mention is that Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger just returned from a similar trip which was sponsored by the Southern Legislative Conference.

Berger tells Mark Binker at the Greensboro News & Record that he saw potential for expanding the state’s agricultural exports there and says his trip and Perdue’s can be worthwhile. 

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems relevant to a story criticizing Perdue for her trip that one of her principal political opponents not only doesn’t object to it but just returned from the same place.

    This trip will probably do the same thing as Gov. Easley’s expensive trip to Russia—- nothing but spend state money !
