    Well, Roy Cooper’s a real profile in courage, isn’t he?

    Where was he when it mattered in January?

    Nothing says “I’ve got guts!” like waiting until the week after a PPP poll on the subject.

    and the fact that the PPP poll is likely wrong is even more hilarious in that he is saying the exact opposite thing the people of NC want to hear.

    GOP Rule, “PPP poll is likely wrong”, is because it doesn’t tell you what you want to hear, or what YOU want others to hear?

    Don’t try to reason with him, Alan, he’s a Republican. They communicate via snake handling.

    The fact that he “can’t see any reason not to expand it” is the EXACT reason he has no business being Governor. WE ARE BROKE, ROY!!! The people that are still working simply do not need any more tax increases.

    Stop running for Governor 2 years early and do your job! If we are going to elect people to do a job, and then they start campaigning, perhaps we need a recall election…….if he wants to be a politician, fine, but I’m tired of having an Attorney General who’s being paid to complain about politics!

    CommonSense, surely then we should be doing the same with the current Guv? I’d love to see him recalled (not sure if that’s even possibly in NC).

    Typo error or Freudian slip, “no business being Governor”?

    GOP Rules,

    Perhaps you have overlooked, again, that ML and I are two different people.

    Perhaps we should trust outlets such as Faux Noise, The New Republic, The Federalist, Civitas et al, as they are all true, honest, patriotic voices of truth?
