The Governor gives himself an “A”

I’m not sure who is in charge of Gov. Pat McCrory’s twitter feed but apparently they are impressed with themselves. Here’s a tweet they sent out:

McCrory_A

 

 

 

 

The problem is that the administration did not get an “A” from the Triangle Business Journal. The Governor received an “A” rating from about 340 people who clicked on the online poll hosted on the TBJ website. And McCrory got a C, D, or F from about 511 voters. 41 percent of the voters rated the Governor’s performance as a “D” or “F”. And this is from a rather conservative readership.

    Seems kind of low to me. Maybe the + key was not working on their keyboard.

    More like an “A” in PE, meaningless.

    Bush opened a new fertilizer plant in Texas today, and McCrory started one of his own in the Old North State.

    “Maybe they only let people with a “valid ID per Phil B and Thom T. vote. They suppressed the vote of the real citizens again!
