You're only saying this because Obama didn't think of it sooner.

Suck to be the minority party. You know, like when Obama fucked over the Republicans during his first term. Payback baby!

I personally think the legislature is being short-sighted, but hey, that's Democracy.

Gruber doesn't even know where North Carolina is. The last time he was asked he thought it was near Canada because, you know, North.

Anyway, if the good citizens of North Carolina don't like it they can vote the bastards out or move.

What is Gruber suggesting, an armed revolt against the Government of North Carolina? Is RDU going to start creating change.org petitions and send strongly worded letters? Are they going to call the UN?

Isn't this the exact opposite of something that would happen in a 'tinpot dictatorship'?

Patrick Henry, the 2nd:
LOL. Does Grubs understand that a dictatorship in a state would BE the Governor? And all this does is place more power in the Legislature- a group of people- not a single man?

What can he really argue is wrong with what they've done? Require confirmation of the cabinet? Why.

He's just angry that HIS party can't have all the power.
