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?
