North Carolina Democrat Gov. Beverly Perdue Says,”Hey, Let’s “Suspend” Elections Until We Fix America” … Oh, I was Just Kidding
SHE SAID WHAT …
North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue stated at a Rotary Club meeting, “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.” Huh? Why would any one make a comment such as this where you would comment about suspending elections? American has gone through much worse, with all due respect to the Obama lying machine, than the present economic situation, like the Civil War, WWII, the Great Depression and the Carter years and as opined at Red State … the elections went forward.
File this in the random-things-politicians-say file. Speaking to a Cary Rotary Club today, N.C. Gov. Bev Perdue suggested suspending Congressional elections for two years so that Congress can focus on economic recovery and not the next election.
“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,” Perdue said. “You want people who don’t worry about the next election.”
The comment — which came during a discussion of the economy — perked more than a few ears. It’s unclear whether Perdue, a Democrat, is serious — but her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the idea.
As stated at Weasel Zippers, upon hearing the Perdue comment, Obama was seen nodding his head like a bobble head doll. Why do we only hear about suspension of elections or a third term when a Democrat in President?
Later in the day when the comment became a “SHE SAID WHAT” moment, her office released the following statement … “Gov. Perdue was obviously using hyperbole to highlight what we can all agree is a serious problem: Washington politicians who focus on their own election instead of what’s best for the people they serve.” Sure, that’s exactly what she meant. HARDLY. How is referencing the suspension of elections and going against the US Constitution a joke or hyperbole? How does a politician even joke about suspending elections when one of “We the People’s” biggest issues with government is they already have too much power and overstepped their Constitutional authority?
Just curious, why would Gov. Perdue make a comments regarding reelection rather than concentrate on the business at hand of helping fix the US economy. However, we are witness once again to a Democrat that is more concerned about reelection than the present economic nightmare. What’s the matter, afraid to do the right thing? Yet another gutless politician who is afraid they might not get reelected for making tough decisions.
EXIT THOUGHT: Rather than suspending elections, why don’t we just have term limits to all political offices, that will force politicians to do the right thing knowing that their political career is not a lifetime appointment. 71% of Americans believe in term limits, why doesn’t the political class do the will of the People?
