DAG McCrory mistakenly opens his mouth

Allowing various words to tumble out haphazardly:

McCrory said since he took office in January, special interest groups vowed to “fight us.” He said critics also have targeted the GOP leadership in Raleigh: House Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate leader Phil Berger. “Let me tell you something. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have always been one of my favorite groups. One of my favorite songs is ‘I Won’t Back Down.’ Tom Tillis won’t back down. Phil Berger won’t back down. The Senate and the House won’t back down. We want to change the status quo in state government and change this economy. That’s what we’re going to do.”

Dude, if you really were a Tom Petty fan, you'd know that Full Moon Fever, the album that contained said favorite song, was a solo effort. There might have been a Heartbreaker or two helping out in the studio, but the band itself was a memory. Okay, that was me just having fun with a rock&roll poseur. This is McCrory placing land mines in his own path:

“Outsiders are coming in and they’re going to try to do to us what they did to Scott Walker in Wisconsin,” he said referring to that state’s governor. Walker and Republican legislators in Wisconsin passed a contentious law in 2011 that stripped most state workers’ collective bargaining rights. The law sparked massive protests at the state Capitol that generated national publicity for Walker. “They are going to come in and try to change the subject. And I’m not going to let them. I’m going to concentrate on the economy, education and government efficiency.”

I got two words for ya', Pat: Chase Burns.

Game, Set, Ma...what? That was not a foot fault, my racquet made contact with the ball long before my feet...Okay, okay! Deuce...

Yeah, those special interests...

...want to "fight" Tillisberger & the McCronies...except for the ones that have lots of money and want to "help".

I'm going to get a bag of popcorn to watch DAG McCrony "fight" the Duke Energy special interest, one of the most powerful in the state. I'm sure he "won't back down" from them (it would be hard to do so when the special interest he's "fighting" is pulling his strings).

I guess "special interests" are in the eye of the beholder.

The governor who has no say or sway...

...but he sure can pay to play!

The DAG is Worried

1. Perhaps portions of "Breakdown" or "Don't Do Me Like That" would be more appropriate.

2. They're not outsiders, DAG McCrony. They're North Carolina citizens whom you're supposed to represent. They're ticked off because you're ruining the state, especially the economy and education.

3. At least you realize that you're heading for Scott Walker territory. Apparently you didn't learn anything from him, because you're handling it at least as badly as he did (P.S. No one is changing the subject -- the subject is the economy and education, and you're on the sidelines cheering while Tillisberger ruin both).

I wonder if someone predicted that DAG McCrony had realized that he was headed into an abyss? Maybe on June 7 on this blog?

Now the DAG is admitting it publicly. But it's not going to improve his poor showing in the history books.

Advantage In. James & scharrison serving to McCrony and Pope.

I think they're all worried

They were hoping all the crap they're pulling would fly under the radar. But you can't cause so much pain and get away with it. There will be a reckoning.

Walker's a good comparison

Scott Walker is a good comparison. Americans for Prosperity bought and paid for him, much like AFP and Pope's foundations paid for the extremist coup in North Carolina.
