NC Dem Gov: “Suspend congressional elections”

From the “We couldn’t make this up” department:

North Carolina’s Democrat Gov. Bev Perdue has actually suggested suspending Congressional elections for two years to focus on the economy:

“You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things. I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. The one good thing about Raleigh is that for so many years we worked across party lines. It’s a little bit more contentious now but it’s not impossible to try to do what’s right in this state. You want people who don’t worry about the next election.”

The News-Observer attempts to make the case that she was “joking” Don’t believe it. This is an desperate liberal solution to deal with the national unrest that is causing Barack Obama to tank in every leading poll.*

Was Gov. Perdue joking?  Here’s the audio link. You decide.

    This is exactly what the Democrats desire. Silence the voice of the people and grease the skids for socialism by ensuring another term for Obama to stick the dagger in the heart of the American people one more time, to make sure we’re dead.

    This woman is a bona fide nitwit. I just listened to her on the audio link and she sounds as though she’s missing more than a few bulbs on her chandelier. What an embarrassment for the people of her state who have an understanding of our Constitutionally granted freedoms.

    As we all know, the hate-filled, mentally unstable leftists are ALWAYS right on the edge of going berserk. But now that the dim-witted neanderthals of the lunatic-left are becoming more and more aware of the upcoming LANDSLIDE DEFEAT of OBOZO in Nov 2012, along with the Repubs gaining control of the Senate, in addition to the House, their extremist insanity is reaching new heights of hysteria. They are lashing out at everyone in their sight with demented rage, rants and physical violence. Some of the most mentally deranged are even calling for a fascist-like SUSPENSION OF ELECTIONS to keep what’s left of their hold on power ! Please do everything you can to protect yourself and your family from the unpredictable sociopath behavior of these out-of-control d-cRAT socialist extremists and their stooges in the lamestream socialist fake-news media.

    I don’t know about suspending elections. But suspending the federal government altogether for two years would give the nation a nice break and allow the economy to recover free from special interests.

    Can you imagine what the reaction would have been if this had been said by Palin or Bachman (or any Republican) from the media? They excoriated Bachman when she joked about hurricanes and earthquakes being a sign.

    “If it was a joke, North Carolina Democratic Governor Bev Perdue needs to polish her delivery”

    I have to admit that the fascist-sounding statement from the chicken gov was EVERY BIT as funny a “joke” as those made by all the official lunatic-left “comics” like bill “sewer-rat” maher, kathy “bwitch” griffin, jon “leftist buffoon” stewart, barny “a man’s man” frank, al “race-baiter” sharpton, etc.

    Aside from comments on conservative blogs, where is the OUTRAGE at this liberal baggage’s comment?

    For that matter, where is the OUTRAGE against the RINO Boehner who put–at Obama’s request–funding for obamacare into the Continuing Resolution bill which passed the House on Monday, with only 24 of the 80 Tea Party freshmen opposed?

    Where is the OUTRAGE against the 56 Tea Party freshmen who PLEDGED to overturn obamacare?

      Garvan makes an excellent point. Where are the AZ Five on defunding Obamacare, defunding Planned Parenthood, defunding ACORN, and all the other defunding they were going to do. Apparently they moved to DC and got their minds right, and now they carry the water for RINO Boehner.

      On March 9, 2011, H. R. 973 was introduced in the House to prevent the misuse of foreign (including Sharia) law in Federal courts, and for other purposes. AS OF THIS WEEK, NOT ONE OF THE AZ FIVE HAS SIGNED ON AS A CO-SPONSOR.

      On March 17, 2011, H. R. 1179 was introduced in the House. It is a bill to implement adequate conscience protections, the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act, for medical and health professionals being prosecuted by Obamacare and HHS. ONLY ONE OF THE AZ FIVE HAS SIGNED ON AS A CO-SPONSOR, and he is NOT one of our newbies.

      THEY won’t protect America & Americans, but they rush to help RINO Boehner raise our taxes and increase government size & spending.

      Looks like AZ got snookered again.

      God bless America.

    She is absolutely NOT joking. They know they are in big trouble.

    The former budget director for Barak Hussein Obama said the same thing in a column he wrote this week.

    Remember the Philadelphia New Black Panthers that Obama & Holder pardoned? Well, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

    God bless America.
