    I expect a lot of blame and no accountability. Pretty much what we've see since he took office.

    Hopefully, he will enumerate the myriad of problems left behind by his predecessor and then leave her behind while he actually solves some of them. This would be as opposed to bringing her up every day for the next 4 years. Thus he should not follow the pattern set by 0bama.

    The State of the State should tell us where we are today.

    Expect an attempt at selling a balanced perspective, one that stresses the importance of careful, well-reasoned decision making and cooperation among all representatives of NC government. Then, expect the following day, more of the reality of NC under Republican (i.e., resurrected Dixiecrat) governing: an extreme legislature that does not heed research or exercise logical reasoning, and where protecting the money of the wealthiest is more important than clean water, natural resources, and the needs of the truly needy poor and elderly. The Democrats won't have to spend much on campaigning to win next round. The current Republican legislature is ensuring their demise early in the game.

    What I would like to hear is "I resign".

    In just 16 days, our representatives have decimated unemployment insurance benfits, given up millions in Federal extension money and blocked the expansion of Medicaid which would have provided health insurance benefits to about 500,000 NC residents.

    These thoughtless and purposeful actions have potentially put businesses and hospitals at risk, created an increase in homelessness and foreclosures, increased Medicaid costs and further clogged emergency rooms with preventable health problems, etc.

    Can you say "recall vote"?

    Well one thing I'd like to hear is how property values in the State of North Carolina went up 50% over the past 8 yrs. Our County mandatory reassessment went in this month and my land values doubled - how can that happen? And there's no recourse but to higher a lawyer or an appraiser - who will likely not want to buck the County and cost $thousands to protest. Let's deal with real problems, not offshore gas drilling or esoteric state legislature posturing. This is costing land owners a lot of money.

    I want to know what they have to fix that was left over and THEN tell us what they hope to accomplish. The State of the State should tell us where we are today.

    I like to know his vision for his cabinet. Does he expect that they will need more raises? They really dont get paid that much and they need more money so they wont leave. The money they get under the table doesnt really count as they dont have to pay taxes on it.

    My expectations are not high... And that applies to ALL politicians!

    The real fun is going to be trying to see if Art Poe's mouth moves while Howdy Doody, I mean Governor McCrory speaks.
