1. my 2 cents worth

The local gop were handed gifts from that stinkin' John Edwards and Mike Easley. Both good men who imo put themselves above the law, turning themselves in bad men. While I feel Bev Perdue wasn't awful, she was portrayed as weak and ineffective, she wasn't brilliant either which led to the inevitable gop win.

The gop "redistricted" themselves into the legislative building....

otoh, 55% of ballots cast were straight D! Several tea baggers were out and out rejected though. If the gop feels it can ramrod sh*t down the throats of the voting public we will be back in business asap. I think fracking is going to be a huge issue - it may well serve to put Dems back in office. We are pretty proud of our education system, so any more cuts there will hurt as well.

We will need to take a chapter out of Obama's book and fight back hard. The Dems that are in office will have to be loud and proud. Get the message out every single time the gop hurts our state.
