Former NC Governor Jim Hunt pens this endorsement for Pres. Obama in today’s N&O. The article is chock full of typicall politcial bloviating – a lot of words with little substance (Obama cares, invest in the future, etc.)
But this sentence near the end caught my attention. Hunt declares:
In short, Obama’s blueprint for our economy is the same blueprint that has transformed North Carolina into what it is today
Given North Carolina continues to struggle with the fifth highest unemployment rate in the nation, has been falling further behind the national average in per capita income in the last decade, and are among the top of the list for percentage of jobs lost during the recession; is that supposed to be an endorsement or a warning?
