Pay to play Pat

Even with the leading "Deputy Assistant", the title "Governor" is wholly inappropriate for Pat McCrory. He doesn't govern; all he does is perpetually campaign.

There's the daily stream of spin, lies and propaganda, but perhaps the most disgusting of Pat's behaviors is his near constant fundraising. He knows the people with the cash, and he'll do most anything to get them to give a lot of that cash to him.

Creating a budget for the state of North Carolina is one of the most important acts of governing.

Except for Pat -- for him, it's one of the most important opportunities to raise some campaign cash.

“The Carolina Comeback is real.” Those words start an email fundraising message from McCrory’s campaign that went out to supporters a couple of hours after he unveiled his proposed budget on Thursday morning.


“Help me continue the Carolina Comeback by showing your support for my proposed budget,” he continues, asking supporters to share the graphic on social media. The bottom of the message includes a “Donate” button, to help McCrory come back for four more years in 2016.

The only budget Pat seems to care about is the one for his re-election campaign.



Lying for dollars

And of course, as we all know, the "Carolina Comeback" isn't real. It's quite bogus. It exists only in Pat's mind.

Things couldn't be better in Alternate Realityville. So how about donating some campaign cash, Daddy Coalbucks?

Mayor Pat

I'm sure I speak for millions of North Carolinians when I laugh at McCrory's ridiculous tenure as governor. They guy is so completely irrelevant that he can't even get the Pope-Civitas crowd to say anything good about his budget nonsense.

What an incredible disappointment McCrory has been - and continues to be. I didn't have high expectations at all, but boy oh boy.
