McCrory's math ad

Posted August 30, 2012

— Republican candidate for governor Pat McCrory has a new television ad out.

The spot, titled "Math," ads up job losses across the state. 

From the ad's script:

PERSON 1: You know, there are more than four hundred thousand North Carolinians out of work right now.

PERSON 2: That’s more than the populations of Asheville, Shelby, Burlington, Chapel Hill, Jacksonville and Wilmington combined.

PERSON 1: Good math.

PERSON 2: Bad deal.

PERSON 1: Need someone new, an outsider.

PERSON 2: McCrory.

PERSON 1: McCrory..

PERSON 2: Pass the barbecue sauce …

And yes, the claim about more than 400,000 people being out of work in NC adds up, according to the N.C. Employment Security Commission.

    They left out the part that the GOP has been in control of NC for two years now and the unemployment rate has increased.

    Very good and easy message for slow thinkers.
