This is a repost of my weekly Da Tech Guy column:

The amount of spin by Chris Fitzsimon in this episode is worth watching. John Locke’s Becki Gray does a nice job redirecting some of his comments.
The idea that this election was a refutation by voters of Obama’s policies was undeniable.

This week, the Reverend Barber and his merry band of big government, big spending extreme leftists got their asses handed to them when North Carolinians headed to the polls.
Rev. William BarberThe big cries about ‘voter suppression’ utterly fell flat. Almost nothing changed at the General Assembly. Hagan was shown the door. Moral Monday racked up arrests for what exactly? Oh, right – so Barber could get a book and film out of it and more air-time on MSNBC.
Hey MoMo’s? Are you seeing any money out of those deals?
Barber is continuing his ineffective haranguing, but one can’t help laugh at this point.
Check out the dueling headlines:

Over the last year, I wrote fairly extensively on some of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals races. The highlighted race amongst those articles was the Supreme Court Justice race, specifically the Chief Justice spot.
That race was between Chief Justice Mark Martin and Judge Ola Lewis. Chief Justice Martin won that race handily with almost 73% of the vote which translated to 1,741,421 votes for Martin to Lewis’s 667,772.
Ervin, Hudson and Beasley all hung on to their seats. The Beasley race was particularly close with only just over 3,200 votes separating them:
SUPREME COURT ASSOC. JUSTICE (Beasley)
NAME ON BALLOT PARTY BALLOT COUNT PERCENT
Cheri Beasley 1,228,397 50.07%
Mike Robinson 1,225,185 49.93%

The Moral Monday candidates took the Wake County Commissioner races last night.
Gird your wallets, people.
Frankly, I don’t know what Wake voters were thinking. These Moral Monday candidates ran under the banner of ‘More with Four’. Well, the ‘More’ in that title is more taxes. When those tax increases, mass transit boondoggles and bond referendums start to come, don’t complain to me. I warned you.
As for the NC GOP. Shame on you. You neglected these races and it look what happened.
These Moral Monday candidates didn’t have enough experience to full a thimble and instead of promoting the Republicans like you did last cycle, you seemingly blew it off. Now these big government, big spending, social justice crusaders are in control of our taxes.
@NCGOP The lack of push behind the Wake comissioner candidates + lack of calling out biased N&O = Why you lost. Those were LAYUPS. #ncpol

North Carolina Midterm Election Roundup for 2014
North Carolina made history last night with a new high for midterm voter turn out.
Thom Tillis defeated Kay Hagan.
Renee Ellmers defeated Clay Aiken.
The General Assembly kept a super majority in both houses.
Wake County Commissioner races were won by all four Democrats running. Be afraid for your wallet, people. Don’t complain I didn’t warn you about these people when they start to hike your taxes.
Chief Justice Mark Martin defeated Judge Ola Lewis. Other Judicial races were not so good for Republicans.
See my Storify Article, North Carolina Races 2014 , for statistics on these key points.
A breakout of the Wake County Commissioners race will be coming. Stay tuned. Continue reading
