In regards to the Sept. 3 editorial “ The Four Nos” attacking the Republican members of the Wake County Board of Commissioners: You’re kidding, right?
I know your editorial board is in favor of raising taxes and increasing spending whenever possible, so your support for the four liberal Democrats running for Wake County commissioner is no surprise. That said, your hypocrisy knows no limits does it? You ridicule the Republican commissioners for declining to attend hatchet job ambush forums while brushing off the Democrats doing the same exact thing a week earlier.
At least the Republicans had the honesty to put their reasons out there. The Democrats hid behind a ridiculous “scheduling conflict” excuse when they ducked the Wake County Taxpayers Association’s forum.
Perhaps the left-wing N&O sees the League of Women Voters and groups like WakeUp Wake County as nonpartisan, but their euphemistic names don’t trick people into thinking these are anything more than Democratic fronts.
I’m thinking of setting up a conservative-leaning group called “Hi, Ya’ll, Please Organize Citizens Righteously In Tenacious & Effective Sincerity.” I figure The N&O would dump gallons of ink into supporting a group with the acronym “HYPOCRITES.”
