I am one of those who voted for Brian with the hope that he would bring a new vision to our county's political process. When I FINALLY thought that everything was progressing towards "OK"... that Brian was working effectively, going to meetings on time and generally performing to the "best of his efforts"; (all right, I'll confess my recently acquired low opinion of him, to his limited capacity) HE DOES THIS.
Hey Republicans, look to Newt Gingrich for something that I find impressive. He backed off of the right-wing hardline on immigration. He is showing compassion for families living in America who arrived here the same way that most of our grandparents did.
Maybe, Republicans, it's time to realize that the T-Party hardline isn't the best way for you to be viable... you WILL need moderates to vote for your candidates. New Hanover County isn't Wisconsin. I don't think that we are really important enough here to be on the Koch brothers' radar.
Really, Republicans, what you need to do is exercise your authority to get Brian Berger to resign. (Hint, Democrats in Mass. have just ended Barney Frank's Congressional career.) Next, you need to cultivate a Congressional candidate with a local background and understanding of who WE are living in this region and what WE, the people want. Pantano just doesn't make the grade.
