I confess to not knowing a lot about Pat McCrory and the great state of Mecklenburg. But I do know this. Pat McCrory has a big ugly "they" problem, and it will be his downfall in November. From his victory speech last night, referring to his tenure as mayor in Charlotte:
"I plan to bring that leadership to the rest of North Carolina because they deserve it."
They? Just who the heck is this "they" he's talking about? Well, just in case you weren't paying attention, "they" is "you" - the people of North Carolina, as distinguished from the people of Charlotte. And that pretty much sums up the problem with Pat McCrory and his messiah complex. He believes he's better than North Carolina, not part of North Carolina. That's why he calls us "they." And what else would you expect from a guy who hasn't cared about our whole state for one second over the past decade? All will be well if only he can be king. Don't you get it? North Carolina deserves to be graced with Pat McCrory's magnificence.
Aside from this profound arrogance, it's clear that Myers Park Pat is woefully out of touch with what really matters to our state. Just consider what he says will be the single most important priority of his reign:
"The number one priority will be to protect people from gang violence, career criminals and illegal immigrants breaking the laws."
It looks to me like the guy doesn't even know what office he's running for.
