A discerning reader adds a twist to my theory (see “Pat Versus Phil” blog below) that Senator Berger might back a primary opponent against Governor McCrory: It could be Lt. Governor Dan Forest: “Can't help but notice Senate budget included Forest's pet project for more education revenue but they didn't include any of Gov’s pet projects. If I was Phil Berger I could see how Forrest is just the right empty suit for the Governor’s Mansion.”
 
Of course, Phil Berger Jr.’s loss in the Sixth Congressional District might give Forrest pause.
 
On that topic, the same reader reported this nugget: “McCrory controversial former Press Flack is busy rubbing salt in the Berger family wound this morning.”
 
That would be Ricky Diaz – late of DHHS $80,000-a-year fame – who tweeted: “With loss of his son in NC-6, BIG defeat for Senate President Phil Berger.”
 
No love lost here.

Gary...that is the MOST "jealous" post I've seen lately. You know that republicans are in control in NC and are pretty much going to do what republicans want done. North Carolina politics is conservative...it's republican. You can talk all the crap you want...make all the cute remarks you want here on TAP....but, c'mon, you, sir, are in the minority in our state. I know you're gonna get some nice gigs as an adviser to dems running for this or that but we here on TAP know you're just one more political adviser that does what you do for the money....nothing more. When your posts here are put on some sites, it makes your ability to get more gigs increase. We know that. Happy "gigs"....all I can say.

Gary, why do you keep putting posts here about what some "reader" or "Tapster" said without backing it up with proving that's what was said by these people? I can say I heard GOD saying something and not back it up, you know?

Who said: “McCrory controversial former Press Flack is busy rubbing salt in the Berger family wound this morning.”

And, who said: “Can't help but notice Senate budget included Forest's pet project for more education revenue but they didn't include any of Gov’s pet projects. If I was Phil Berger I could see how Forrest is just the right empty suit for the Governor’s Mansion.”

I can say someone said ANYTHING here and not have to show who said it or prove it was actually said. Identify these folks you quote or stop putting allusive quotes here, okay? Sheeeesh.
