Clodfelter eyes mayoral bid

A few weeks ago longtime Democratic Sen. Dan Clodfelter raised eyebrows when he said he might run for the Charlotte City Council. Now he might run for mayor.

"I'm very seriously considering it," he said Tuesday. "I've been getting a great deal of encouragement."

Clodfelter isn't the only one -- or only legislator -- looking at the race since incumbent Democrat Anthony Foxx said this month he won't run for a third term. Democratic Reps. Becky Carney and state Sen. Malcolm Graham have said they're considering it.

Clodfelter said he could make a decision by the end of the month.

"When people reach out to you," he said, "
you want to think seriously about what they're asking you to do."

Yes, Lord Help Us! Someone with a brain, someone who actually comprehends what happens in Raleigh and how not to upset every single constituency in the area on moronic, self-serving ideas. Please, Lord, let us wind up with a good man and human being like Dan Clodfelter instead of some political whack job to further drown this community in idiotic projects with no benefits for our citizens.

35 killed and 300 injured in rural southern blue collar worker's socialist paradise proletariat plant West Texas explosion.
Will Obama be delivering the "interfaith" eulogy there too after he leaves urban elite northern bourgeois Boston MA where 2 liberal white student murderers killed 3 and injured 170?

LA Time editorial off target. Why shouldn't NY Post and others be looking for a muslim with an arabic name anyway? Is it race profiling when muslims like Obama and his ilk are the ones who commit all the bombings of innocents anyway i.e. 911, Israel, and a million targets the world over even after Iraq and Afghan wars are over?
Isnt bombing innocents what they do for a living?
Muslims or muslim wantabe liberals cause all bombings including Aurora and Newtown etc.

The yellow coward in the WH backs down and scared to kill the 2nd muslim murderer?
All hell will break loose? Really?

Time for the chickenshit muslim coddler who wants to destroy Americas nuclear arsenal to resign and get elect a real man will balls (not hillary) who will do the job once and for all. Nuke the bastards.

Opoopa has allowed how many millions of illegals and muslims to enter Amerika including al-queda and terrorists while homosexualizing this nation?

Hard to believe the sicko perv liberal media not only supports but promotes young normal sane Boy Scout kids being around devious homosexual perverted freaks in order to try to either molest or experiment with permissive sexual deviancy on camping trips to remote locations.

Bringing back the adult homosexual scout masters is just a matter of time who are proven homosexual pedophile child molesters.

Too say the media promotes pedophilia and unlawful deviant sexual conduct is putting it mildly but this the age of homosexual Obama who is obv a pedophile and reportedly orchestrated the death of his gay lover choir leader of Trinity church in Chicago.

Liberals are all whackos espec in the most liberal city state in Amerika. Gesus Krist get over this shit already. Only 3 dead? Thats nothing. Liberal fag pedophile lovers and their famous pussyass lying prez allowed all these millions of illegal aliens and jihadist terrorists to trustingly freely enter and roam didnt they? This 24/7 news coverage is OLD and Boston is not the only fucking city on the map. Such pussy asses.
Texas explosion was 10 times worse and they didnt whine like this. Why didnt Obama go there too?
Go buy a gun or AR14 and round up the Obama muslim terrorists you allowed in the door and throw them in jail or to Gitmo.
Stop the fucking whining. This is minor compared to what could have happened and still could. Get rid of the muslim coddler in the WH before its too late.
The only good muslim is a dead muslim. Hopefully you learned a lesson in life.
Trust conservatives. Liberals are all stank.

So Foxx, based on his trolly experience, will be Secretary of Transportation. He will still be better at transportation than Geitner & Holder at their jobs.
This President & his administration are a joke.

So we are supposed to have confidence in government? Foxx could not even get council members from his own party to support his trolly, a major airline had lost confidence in him to the point they felt they needed to pull the airport from the city. Has there ever been a less qualified cabinet member?
