In a “major shocker” the Charlotte Observer has endorsed the Democrat.
Not actually a shocker since they pretty much support liberalism in all it’s forms. The endorsement of Obama bragged about on the Dailykos, Kay Hagen for senate, or just about anyone with a (D) next to their name.
A simple google search can pretty much back this fact.
Now if you wish to point out they endorsed Pat McCrory for governor, let’s not both play dumb. Pat has been Mayor of this city for more than a decade, not even the liberal flyer known as the Observer would be so shortsighted as to not back the hometown mayor who may remain their mayor for the next 10 years.
“…..After decades of heady growth, Charlotte has hit a rough patch unprecedented in recent memory. Our booming economy is stalled, and the banks that have led the way for years have faltered. Uptown condo towers that were sprouting everywhere froze, unfinished. Tax revenues are down at every level of government, limiting the ability to build roads, beef up public transit and pay for schools, parks, jails and other projects. Our neighbors are unemployed, or fear they soon will be, and the nonprofit sector has seen donations drop while demand soars. A lack of affordable housing remains a stain on this city’s reputation…..
What I find funny is that they believe that a tax and spend liberal would be useful in an environment where “Tax revenues are down at every level”. Perhaps they support the guy who can best raise everyone’s taxes to fill the void?
What exactly does a Democrat do when their isn’t money to spend?
The one trick Democrat pony doesn’t know anything but “buy votes and take credit” through the use of tax dollars.
“He is a work in progress, to be sure. At 38, he is still honing his campaigning and governing skills. But we admire his philosophy on leadership, which is an inclusive brand that believes in listening and serving and being more bottom-up than top-down.”
So maybe the Observer thinks we can have our own personal Barrack Obama? He is still learning to do his job like our president but they admire his philosophy? Like giving someone a Peace Prize for what they may someday do with the potential?
“Lassiter’s experience in public office is as deep as any Charlotte mayoral candidate in recent memory. He is fluent on just about any issue that comes his way, able to talk in detail about the nature of problems and their solutions. He has shown the ability to juggle many tasks at once, successfully weaving his personal and professional life with his civic involvement.”
The Observer then goes on to say Lassiter is the most qualified candidate in memory. They ackowledge he has actually accomplished things compared to the “potential” they Foxx may someday have when he finishes learning how to Govern and do his job.
This sounds like a script I’ve seen before? The Democrat hope and change candidate who “has potential” and someday will use it -VS- the highly qualified candidate with more experience than any other candidate.
“The mayor’s office, though, is about agenda-setting and image-shaping as much as it is policy implementation. And for that, we give the nod to Foxx. “
So, they support the image candidate with no experience who is still a “work in progress” Vs the substance candidate with more relevent experience than anyone else.
“Work In Progress” Vs. “most qualified candidate in memory”
Observer endorses “Work In Progress”.
“Image” Vs. Actual accomplishment.
Observer endorses “Image”.
Democrat Vs. Republican
See a pattern here.
I swear we have seen this script play out before?
I wonder who ACORN endorses?
Before you go out and vote for “hope and change” as the Observer seems to think Foxx brings us, maybe you should ask yourself how the last “inexperienced guy” promising that has produced.
Image only gets politicians a job, so don’t make the same mistake twice Charlotte.
Observer Endorses Anthony Foxx
