Governor flippantly defends decision to deliver cookies to pro-choice protesters

CookiesUnless you read all the way to the bottom of Sarah Ovaska’s remarkable post below, you may have missed this amazing nugget Ovaska culled from the Guv’s interview with WFAE in Charlotte yesterday:

“When asked by [interviewer] Collins about whether, his July delivery of a plate of cookies to abortion rights protestors outside the Governor’s Mansion was a good idea in hindsight, McCrory remarked he didn’t care.

‘I don’t care, I felt like doing it,’ he said. ‘Who cares?’”

Good lord, is this man really serious?

Look, reasonable people can have differeing positions on the important and emotionally-charged matter of abortion and reproductive rights generally, but when the elected leader of nine-million people engages in such patently juvenile behavior and then doubles down on it with such a dismissive and downright lunkheadedly disrespectful statement as this, all a body can do is slap one’s forehead and get ready for the next round of jokes at our once-respected state’s expense.

    And he certainly won’t care when he has to slink on back to the corporate back office from which he oozed out January 2017.

    Does Rob get paid by Blueprint/Bluepoint for the word, the sentence or the thought to attack the Governor and the General Assembly?

    This cannot be a nonprofit and Rob knows nothing about the poor.

    Frances,

    You aren’t obviously paid by the word, but I note yet again you attack the author. Inappropriate…

    Can you please refrain from posting after a few Jack D’s?

    Rob should stop posting Democrat reports every minute, every hour, every day using a nonprofit status to further this agenda.

    I just wanted to know if Rob was getting paid from PP and Blueprint or is it just an organized effort?????? Power and helping the poor are two entirely different paths in politics.

    Maybe Francis get his/her own blog that way she/he can post whatever she/he wants and won’t have to complain about what a LINERAL site posts. I don’t complain or post everytime civitas or heritage puts up something that I don’t like. Since Frances is of the conservative blood she/he should not respect freedom of speech but applaud it. However that’s not the case with trolls bc the only free speech allowed is that which she/he agrees with.

    Power and helping the poor? I suppose you are right but I don’t see how these two got linked together in discussing this post? It’s clear from the post and any rational thought that the power lies with the governor and he of course neglects the poor but rob is not the governor nor does he hold any political office with power.

    You say rob posts everytime and every minute there’s a democratic story is part of robs job and sounds to me like he’s doing a good job if it is every minute, seems like hard work.

    Good or bad decision….who cares? It was at least a nice decision….to think if he fully ignored him he would be eviscerated or crucified….if he is nice he is eviscerated and crucified. At least he took the high road, vs. the liberal choice of dragging through the mud.

    If those who have power fail to help the poor then they ignore their moral responsibilities. If Rob should draw attention to the failings of the powerful he then walks in the path of the morally responsible.
