The Guv gets at least a couple things right

Pat McCrory 5Well, it’s a start.

As reported byUnder the Dome Gov. McCrory told MSNBC that he was worried about federal sequestration and that many Republicans come across as too “negative” and “strident.”  These comments — particularly the first one — contrast sharply with yesterday’s statement from Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger’s office that efforts by advocates to call attention to the threat of sequestration were “a publicity stunt.”

Unfortunately, McCrory also used the interview to defend his decidedly negative and strident position on unemployment insurance — which he helped shred by signing disastrous legislation earlier this week — and his plan to block Medicaid expansion (an idea that’s now being embraced by more and more Republican governors around the country).

    Mr. Schofield almost made it through an entire 3 sentences without criticizing Governor McCrory. Somehow I doubt he’ll keep it up,

    Mr Schofield will probably wait to get really nasty until the Blueprint NC scandal quiets down…wouldn’t want to make it too obvious that he’s following orders to try and cripple the functioning of the executive branch of North Carolina.
