Too Complex for McCrory Too?

Brad Phillips notes that North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) gave a speech earlier this week during which he accused local journalists of not understanding his fiscal plans because, "This is too complex for the journalists. They don't have economics degrees."

But he probably shouldn't have said that, as WRAL points out: "It may be worth noting that McCrory's campaign website says he graduated from 'Catawba College in Rowan County, where he earned degrees in Education and Political Science.' There's no mention of an economics degree."
