  •  Why does McCrory have such teflon? (2+ / 0-)

    Especially after his repulsive bomblets directed at the Chapel Hill program?

    •  Unfortunately (0+ / 0-)

      most of North Carolina is not going to defend the women's studies program at UNC Chapel Hill.  That was a slight gaffe but for the most part McCrory has stayed above the fray and out of controversy and he hasn't really done anything yet.

        it was a nasty, narrow-minded, anti-intellectual statement meddling in one of the state's most successful universities. What's more, it was part of a package aiming to undermine the foundation of the state's successful universities which have been a key part of North Carolina's success.

    •  He hasn't done much at all yet (1+ / 0-)

      and his unfavorables have increased by about twofold from before the election. He's been content to let the legislature do his dirty work and they haven't actually passed much legislation yet. Just wait around until they pass a budget and try to privatize the school system and gut the UNC system and his favorables will drop.

      Mostly though, he's just not a visible figure, despite being governor.
