Beverly Perdue, a Democratic governor with one of the lowest (if not the lowest) approval ratings in the country, has posted a series of Q&A videos in which she addresses concerns of her North Carolina constituents. Today, in her answer to a public school teacher who complains about state budget cutbacks which has led to teacher assistant firings, Perdue said this year's "toughest budget challenge" was "maybe even as tough as what happened in the Great Depression."

Undoubtedly she was just "emotionalizing" the issue -- so much more palatable than "exaggerating" or "lying."
