As if he hasn’t complained enough about Governor Pat McCrory, Democrat Roy Cooper is harping on North Carolina’s updated voter laws.
In an e-mail to supporters, Cooper moaned that Photo Voter ID and fewer early voting days “can’t be fair”.
He whined that this means that “eligible voters are denied their rights to vote”.
Cooper, the likely Democrat nominee, did not support the reforms made to voting laws in 2014 by the NC General Assembly and supported by Gov. McCrory. Those laws take the fraud out of North Carolina elections.
Liberal groups such as the NAACP and Democracy North Carolina fought against the law.
Cooper has never stood up for North Carolina values, instead preferring to bury his head in the sand over issues like Obamacare. Cooper is the probable Democrat nominee to run against Governor Pat McCrory.
According to the Civitas Institute, The Moral Monday agenda would cost taxpayers $10 billion, forcing a tax increase of $4,000 on every family of four.
“Estimates now reach an eye-popping $10 billion to pay for the “people’s agenda.” That would mark a whopping 50 percent increase in the state budget. To fund the “Moral Monday” demands would cost every man, woman in child in North Carolina roughly an additional $1,000. That amounts to adding another $4,000 in taxes to the tax bill of each family of four.” (“Moral Monday Price Tag Grows – Now at $10 Billion,” Civitas Institute, 6/10/2014)
Ricky Diaz, Pat McCrory for Governor spokesman, said, “Roy Cooper’s backing by the unions is no surprise, given they have bankrolled protests and relentless attacks against Governor McCrory to obstruct his efforts to rebuild North Carolina since day one.
But now that they have formally endorsed him, Roy Cooper completely owns their radical, pro-union Moral Monday agenda, which seeks to end the state’s right-to-work laws, increase the size of the state budget by 50% and increase taxes on each family in North Carolina by $4,000.”
The AFL-CIO has also endorsed Deborah Ross for US Senate, and Charles Meeker for Labor Commissioner..
North Carolina Democrats generally RUN from their national counterparts, but not Roy Cooper. The Democrat candidate for Governor appears in a video endorsing liberal Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton represents the same failed policies of the past and would love nothing more than to bring North Carolina backwards, something she has in common with 30 year Raleigh insider Roy Cooper,” said NCGOP Chairman Hasan Harnett.
“Will Roy Cooper and former Charlotte mayor turned D.C. Democrat Anthony Foxx‘s lead and throw their support behind Hillary Clinton? Together, these Democrats would take North Carolina back to the days of higher taxes and stagnant economic growth.”
Cooper is vying for the Democrat nomination for Governor. If he wins, he faces likely Republican nominee, Governor Pat McCrory.
Anthony Foxx apparently wants to stay employed. He wants to stay in government so desperately that he endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. Talk about stooping. Today, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation traveled to Iowa to make his “big” announcement.
Everyone wants to stay employed but is it really necessary for him to do this? Does the Charlotte mayor carry that much weight in his party? Would she actually keep him in her administration? Is that how she will hand out her political favors?
Let’s support the Republican nominee and not be forced to find out..
Leaders at the North Carolina Republican Party appeared thrilled with the slate of candidates they are proposing in 2016. In this election cycle, they say:
“The NCGOP has filled all the 2016 Council of State and Appeals Court races, while contesting 44 races in the State Senate (up from 41 in 2014), compared to just 38 for the Democrats. The NCGOP will also have candidates running in 90 House races.”
The party stated that “the impressive slate of candidates across the state to continue the record of economic success and oppose the Obama-Clinton-Cooper agenda.”
Republican leadership has helped create more than 230,000 jobs, implemented historic tax reform and is making North Carolina a top state for both business and employment. It’s no wonder there’s a draw for more Republican leadership in North Carolina,” said NCGOP Chairman Hasan Harnett. (left)
“We are already hard at work with Republican candidates in 2016, like Lt. Governor Dan Forest, who could become the first Republican in North Carolina’s history re-elected to the post.
“We’re hitting the ground running to elect Republicans in 2016”.
“Last week, our part-time Attorney General Roy Cooper sent out another fundraising pitch and questionnaire, this time asking people to ‘pick 3-4 issues that are most important to you’ as the General Assembly reconvenes. What’s really telling are the issues he doesn’t mention – like veterans, law enforcement, transportation infrastructure, taxes and spending, and the number one issue facing North Carolina – jobs and the economy.”
The Beagle visited the probable Democratic nominee’s site and found the following choices:
Not one of them mentioned the economy without regarding spending more taxpayer money.
“Transparency in campaign finance law” is code speak for government regulations and government financing of elections. The Beagle believes we need to stay as far away from that as possible.
“Protecting and improving access to healthcare” is code speak for Cooper’s support of Obama Care.
Social conservatives will not like “protecting women’s health care choices.” That’s his way of saying “Do you support abortion rights?”
Liberals just don’t understand that most conservatives are middle-class Americans, because they work hard for what they have. “Millionaires” as they call anyone who earns over $250k, own companies that provide jobs to Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, and unaffiliated voters.
Chairman Pope added:
“The Attorney General Should be embarrassed over this liberal-based questionnaire.” He added that Cooper is getting his talking points from President Obama, Harry Reid and other liberals in Washington.
What do you think? Weigh in and share your opinions..
Following news that liberal hatchet man Gerrick Brenner and his extreme front group Progress NC Action will file a political complaint against Governor McCrory, North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Claude E. Pope Jr. released the following statement:
“This snide group is nothing but a front for the left wing extremists in North Carolina, like Roy Cooper, to launch unfounded and baseless attacks against Republicans. It’s sad that these extremists spend more time focused on media manufactured political problems instead of working with Governor McCrory to continue his successful record of improving North Carolina’s economy and decreases in unemployment.”
Shady tactics? Sounds like a nasty way to draw fire away from a very damaged North Carolina Democratic Party.
UPDATE: Governor McCrory’s office has weighed in thusly:
“Do you ever notice how fringe groups like Progress NC get favorable treatment from the Main Stream Media – free of charge? Groups from the far left like Progress NC – led by a former television reporter – can make bogus complaints and the media will carry it no matter what. This has gone on for years. No more!”
This is sad news for the man who wrote in his book, that he was “sucked in” by the John Edwards charisma and was a mere victim.
Edwards however, is a bit of a different story. The former one-term United States Senator rose to fame after winning a seven-figure lawsuit for a little girl who was injured in a swimming pool.
He bankrolled his way to the United States Senate, and was later nominated for vice president. He then ran for the primary for president in 2008. He later became the butt of national jokes after his personal life was revealed.
Edwards’ life is still on trial, in one form or another, today.
Andrew Young was his personal aide who hid Edwards’ mistress, their daughter and their sex tape.
