Tillis is still lying

Apparently WRAL happened to be at Duke Medical Center when Thom Tillis came calling, so they got themselves an "exclusive" interview and asked ol' Thom how things are going up there in Washington.

It's going great," the Republican said Friday
"I've spent most of my time reaching across the aisle," he said.

Wow, what a whopper, Thom! The only way that could be true is if you were reaching across the aisle to slap every person over there on the other side.

The truth is that Thom has spent most of his time -- nearly all of his time -- excoriating President Obama for anything and everything.

A good reporter would have known that, and would have followed up with a question like "Really Senator? Because it seems that you spend most of your time bashing the president. Could you give us some examples of how you reached across the aisle?"

But Cullen Browder of WRAL didn't follow up. Maybe he's moved on from investigative reporting to puff pieces?



Oh look!

Here's Thom reaching across the aisle:

Oh, and here's another time Thom reached across the aisle.

Unfortunately, North Carolina’s two Republican senators, Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, also signed with 45 others a letter to the leaders of Iran basically telling them that President Obama’s word was no good

And of course, he's been reaching across the aisle to repeal Obamacare, vote against the eminently qualified Attorney General from our own state, opposing any sort of immigration reform, bashing the president for handling of war on ISIS while offering no alternative, etc., etc.

If you're on the other side of the aisle from Thom, beware when he reaches across it.

"I will have a priority on building relationships with the minority caucus. I want to put substance behind those campaign speeches." -- Thom Tillis, Nov. 5, 2014


The funny thing is, the statement can't even be technically accurate. Tillis has spent most of his time listening to ALEC ... and sleeping.

"Reaching Across the Aisle" ...

... must be a euphemism for "Lining Up a Cushy Lobbying Job After I Get Kicked in the Nuts at the Voting Booth in a Few Years"...
