Obama congratulates Perdue on tenure

President Barack Obama issued a statement Thursday afternoon on Gov. Bev Perdue's retirement:

"As the first woman to serve as North Carolina’s Lieutenant Governor and Governor, Bev Perdue has never been afraid to break barriers.  For over 25 years, she has fought for the people of the Tar Heel State – working to transform the state’s public schools, improve the health care system, protect and attract jobs for members of the military and their families, and create the jobs of the future.  Michelle and I want to congratulate Governor Perdue on her historic tenure, and we wish Bev and her family well in the future."

What's missing?

Seems to me, he should be thanking her for giving him a chance in NC.  That's certainly what he's celebrating.  I do, however, think it will backfire in the end.
