McCrory criticizes Senate process on abortion bill


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Gov. Pat McCrory says he's unhappy with the process that led the North Carolina Senate to pass a bill putting more restrictions on carrying out abortions.

McCrory said Wednesday that Senate Republicans who pushed the legislation are completing business the same way that Democrats did when they were in charge of the General Assembly. McCrory says it was not right then and it's not right now.

The bill was pushed through the Senate in less than 24 hours with little public notice. McCrory says the process should be appropriate and thorough.

He did not say what he'd do if the bill comes to his desk for his signature. McCrory was asked last fall during a debate which additional abortion restrictions he would agree to sign into law. He said none.

Actions, not words

Yesterday, the Charlotte Observer said McCrory was "mum" on what he'd do with the bill. He'll do whatever Art Pope tells him to do, after all.

Even if he vetoes it, the General Assembly has enough Tealiban Republicans to override.

Consider it done. Now, women-get on those bur qua's!

Pat . . .

. . . please live up to your word & you MIGHT win the respect of those of us who are beginning to believe that you won't.

Bravo Smirkey

Thank you for speaking up.
Now keep your campaign pledge and veto this piece of legislation.

Otherwise I might change your name to Governor Liar...
