McCrory the Sycophant

People who know Pat McCrory have told me that even though he's a hot-headed bully, he's not terribly stupid, and he has at least a few principles. Unfortunately, his performance this week destroys any hope for the latter.

Scrambling at a press conference to avoid being tarred by Paul Ryan's toxic budget brush, McCrory told reporters, “I’m going to support the Romney plan.”

The Romney plan? Are you kidding, Pat? There is no Romney plan. It flat out doesn't exist. But rest assured, whatever Romney comes up with, McCrory-the-sycophant is going to support it. Which tells us everything we need to know about the "principles" of Pat McCrory. They're the same as the "principles" of Mitt Romney: Say whatever you have to say to get elected, because you'll be able to change your mind as many times as you want for whatever reasons suit you.

Pat McCrory is a joke. And if he gets elected governor in North Carolina, the joke will be on us.

Sycophant

Could there be a better definition for Pat McCrory?

A servile self-seeker who attempts to win favor by flattering influential people

Paul Ryan, too

I heard on the news last night that while growing up in a small town in Wisconsin, his fellow high school students selected him as "brown noser" of the year. Maybe this is a qualification required of certain candidates?

Republicans like McCrory could care less about principles

Of course they also have little affinity for principals as well. Their moral compass always points to the bank, and they would just as soon keep the drones uneducated.
