Democrat NC Gov. Perdue’s Office Said “Suspending Elections” was a Joke … Listen to Audio, Doen’t not Sound like a Joke


The other day it was reported that North Carolina Democrat Governor Bev Perdue stated that “elections should be suspended” for two years. Quickly her office put out the talking points that she was just making a joke and using hyperbole. Really? The Daily Caller has the audio of Perdue’s comment regarding the suspension of election. I guess that Perdue must work on her stand up comic delivery or at least provide a rim shot to emphasize the comedy.

Listen for yourself and you make the call.

“Listen to the Governor’s words: She wasn’t joking at all,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood told The Daily Caller. “The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability.”

“If it was a joke, what was the set-up?,” Lockwood adds. “What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter? It took them three hours to say it was a ‘joke,’ but when that flopped it became ‘hyperbole.’ We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad idea.”

When just 17% of the American people think that the  country is headed in the right direction and Democrats are headed for another 2010 shellacking in the 2012 elections, I bet those in the “Donkey” party want the elections to be suspended.

EXIT QUESTION: If Democrats are willing to suspend the US Constitution for elections, what else are they willing to suspend it for? I wonder if Democrats would be asking for the suspension of elections if they thought they were predicted to remain in power?

      North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue words were not pulled out of thin air. Obviously … the possible suspension of elections has been a topic of discussion in the Democratic circles. Was Perdue chosen as the means to determine the reaction of Americans.

      Those with far left/Maxist leanings will applaud the idea.


      GOP: No ‘Joke’ for North Carolina Governor to Suggest Suspending Elections
      Published September 28, 2011

      “She wasn’t joking at all. The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability,” spokesman Rob Lockwood said. “If it was a joke, what was the set-up? What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter?”

      “We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad-idea,” he said in a statement.

      The Constitution dictates elections for the House be held every two years.

      The Raleigh News & Observer first reported that Perdue, a Democrat, suggested a change in protocol during a speech at a local Rotary Club.

      “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,” she said. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. … You want people who don’t worry about the next election.”

      No way was this person joking, the tone of her voice and to give examples as to why they needed to shut down the elections,tells me she is not joking.

      This is the mind set of most dems but she could have been testing the waters for “O”, to do this very thing so the king can stay in power….scary stuff.

      suspend all democrat party agendas, shut down all democrat offices including the president. he does nothing anyway so there will not be any difference in when he is there or not.

      Lacking in an understanding of what Freedom entails, this
      gal is careening off the tracks of reason. It would be a
      sensible thing to get her an emergency career change perhaps
      in another country as well.

      Rush Limbaugh also thinks that Barrack Hussein Obama will suspend elections in 2012. This isn’t a joke, guys.
