I'm going to boil your presentation here down a bit. It's actually just a message to democrats in North Carolina on how you, Gary, think democratic politicians and their minions should go about campaigning this year.
In a nutshell, it's this: "Hey Democrats, the coal ash disaster can't be tied to McCrory or republicans and hasn't resonated with voters and in many ways the causes of it date back to when democrats were in the majority in our state. But, banging and banging and banging away on how horrible McCrory and the republicans have been in their treatment of teachers resonates more with the voters. So, stay with that and forget about this coal ash thingy".
That about it, Mr. Pearce? Well, I believe that a great many voters in our state are aware that schools suffered dearly under the previous democratic rule for a very long time in our state and I think they also know that McCrory is working on making our state's education better along with helping our teachers. Yeah, yeah...I've read all the spin democrats are putting out there...some of it you've actually regurgitated right here on the TAP front page. But, it doesn't hold water and like it or not, North Carolina voters are smarter than you think they are.
