North Carolina A Political Headache For Democrats

Democrat SC North Carolina A Political Headache For Democrats

Once a bright spot for President Barack Obama, North Carolina is now more like a political migraine less than four months before Democrats open the party’s national convention in Charlotte.

The causes are plenty.

Labor unions, a core Democratic constituency, are up in arms. Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue isn’t running for re-election; Democrats say she was likely to lose. The state Democratic Party is in disarray over an explosive sexual harassment scandal. Voters recently approved amending the state constitution to ban gay marriage, a position that runs counter to Obama’s. And unemployment in the state remains persistently high.

“Nobody can sugarcoat the fact that we got problems here,” said Gary Pearce, a former Democratic consultant who was an adviser to former Democratic Gov. Jim Hunt. Pearce was referring specifically to state party woes but could have been talking about any of the troubles here for Democrats.

      I think that the thing is, people are WAKING up to who obama REALLY is…and they ARE NOT liking it! They were not LISTENING when he told them what he was going to do back in 2008 before he was put into office! They were blinded by all the hoopla surrounding obama, they didn’t HEAR his REAL message! He told everyone who was listening exactly what he was going to do! He told Virginia and the other coal states he was going to shut coal production down, he said the price of home heating and gas were going UP, everything people are up in arms about NOW ,were told to them in 2008! They were in an obama coma, but are just now seeing the truth! We have a FRAUD-in-CHIEF up there in the Whitehouse who is doing his best to destroy America…TRUTH is sometimes a bitter pill to swallow, but it will sure cure this migraine obama has caused!

    Good, I have had a migraine since Obama cheated his way through his campaign in 2008. And he is doing it again by epic bounds and leaps. The dems should have a headache. Oh!, now I get it, they know they are loosing! They say the moderate and conservative dems (if there is such a thing in the democratic party) can't stand Obama, they feel he has destroyed their party so much; that the party is fighting among themselves and they wont vote for him at the polls. But they are too spineless to go public and say so. Typical! Didn't Hitler's close advisers/officers get enough of him?
