Governor McCrory is starting to look like Bev Perdue without the dress.
He started out this legislature saying he’d be more assertive. Then Senator Berger released his budget and showed everybody who’s the Real Boss in Raleigh.
McCrory clearly doesn’t like Berger’s budget. But it’s not clear what he’s going to do about it. He also says he doesn’t like repealing Common Core. But it’s not clear what he’s going to do about it.
(A side note: When McCrory put on a big photo op to sign the fracking bill, one person of interest wasn’t in the picture: Thom Tillis. Somebody has done some polling.)
June is Test Month for McCrory. Once the session is over, the media and the political world will assess whether he met his own goal. Did he stand up, or did he get rolled?
