Oooof! Our dear (in the headlights) "Bev" is quite the lame one. She's intrinsically vapid.

Raleigh,

As someone from NC, can you shed some light on the strong disapproval for this woman in such a short period of time?

@ Field Marshal

A few months ago she lobbied for and approved a nearly 1 Billion (with a B) tax package that was pushed through by the democrat-controlled legislature. Her idea of adding a 1% sales tax increase was part of that package. She wanted MORE taxes, the people wanted no more taxes. That was enough right there.

Bear in mind she had the smallest margin of victory in a gubernatorial election in the history of NC. I think it was like 18,000 votes or something, but don't quote me. She wasn't universally beloved to start with.
