Tillis tries to defend tax reform with incoherent rambling

Of course, that's just a guess. Analysts are still trying to decipher what he said:

But Tillis, a 53-year-old former IBM executive who has the strong backing of the GOP establishment but is by no means the prohibitive front-runner, is betting that Southern Democrats who once thrived here are dying breeds because of the liberal policies coming out of Washington. He is defiant about North Carolina’s hard-right turn, calling it a “reform agenda unlike any other state in the United States.”

“I think for the most part, what I see from the folks who are opposing our agenda is whining coming from losers,” he said in an interview in his Raleigh office. “They lost, they don’t like it, and they are going to try to do everything they can to, I think, cast doubt on things that I think are wise and that the average citizen when they know what we’re doing, I think, like it.”

Um, what? Did Thom's doctor cut him off from caffeinated coffee or something? I think his repetitive use of the phrase "I think" (four times, no less) is an effort to jump-start his brain, not unlike when you get a straight-gear car rolling and then pop the clutch. It's not working.

Riiiiiiiiight

Average citizens are looking at this clown and thinking:

  • He promised us a tax cut, but he raised taxes instead.
  • He promised to improve public education, but teachers are leaving in droves.
  • He promised to create jobs, but ... abortion and gay marriage?

Tillis is toast. And the only whiner I see is the guy pretending to be governor.

Incoherent rambling

typically is not considered a good campaign strategy.

Having put his foot in his mouth, Thom apparently decided he liked the taste. Today he's fulminating about Senator Hagan's proposal to restore the unemployment benefits that Thom eliminated:

Say, Thom, isn't this what you said you wanted when you falsely blamed the feds for your own actions?

Republican state House Speaker Thom Tillis, who wants to run against Hagan for her Senate seat, and state Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger have criticized Hagan for not getting North Carolina “grandfathered” under federal law so that the state could change its unemployment program without losing the federal benefits.

Hagan said she couldn’t have changed the federal law because it was impossible to have a grandfather clause for a state law that didn’t exist yet at the time.

Kay Hagan -- cleaning up Thom Tillis's messes!

"I think" 4 times

means that he doesn't think.

Can you imagine Tyrant Thom's reaction if President Obama said, “I think for the most part, what I see from the folks who are opposing our agenda is whining coming from losers. They lost, they don’t like it, and they are going to try to do everything they can to, I think, cast doubt on things that I think are wise and that the average citizen when they know what we’re doing, I think, like it.”

Of course, the president wouldn't babble so incoherently, but it seems that Tillis just made the case as to why he should not be elected senator. He's just a whiner who's upset because his party lost the White House and US Senate.

DSCC nails it

Here's the DSCC response to Tillis's stupid remarks. And it's also a really nice compilation of Thom's damage to our state. What a nice Christmas gift for Kay Hagan!

I hope Thommie...

...sees the writing on the wall and drops out of his senate race. There is strong talk that Mike Hager is in contention for Speaker of the House...and if there is anyone more sleazy than Thommie in the NCGA, it's Hager.

It can get worse...
