It begins…

Democrat Governor Bev Perdue called for suspending national elections today in a speech to the Cary Rotary Club.
The News Observer reported:

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. (Read her full remarks below.)

Later Tuesday afternoon, Perdue’s office clarified the remarks: “Come on,” said spokeswoman Chris Mackey in a 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.”

The Republicans sure are taking it seriously as they look to score political points. Here’s a statement from GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood:

“Now is a time when politicians need to be held accountable more than ever. To suspend an election would be removing the surest mechanism that people have to hold politicians accountable: the right to vote. Does the Governor not believe that people of North Carolina have the ability to think for themselves about whether or not the actions of elected officials are working?”

  1. Let’s suspend her, like on the end of a — (oops, can’t say that).

  2. North Carolina (Democratic) Governor Beverly Perdue is what happens when you slug back hard liquor in the voting booth.

    Blogger “Gargonzola” at the DailyCaller had a comment about Perdue’s comments today that deserves an embellishment ala Elmer Fudd:

    OK, you wascles!!! I pwahpose a wit of Habeus Doofus on future ewections!

    Even Lincoln himself would have kicked this old bag down the Capitol steps — and then kicked her carcass for good measure!

    Wise up, North Carolina! Stop drinking, start voting! Your Governor is making you look like you’re not paying attention!

  3. The good people of North Carolina needs to overwhelmingly vote her out next year. She’s up for reelection.

    This shows that the Democrats think they can ignore the U.S. Constitution.

  4. Purdue has a state elections board. So why doesn’t she just get them to suspend elections in her state.

    Then the North Carolinians can vote right after they tar and feather her and ride her out of their state on a rail.

  5. The first version,
    ““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 version used by the Left to spin it as a joke.
    “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. Perdue said. “You want people who don’t worry about the next election.”

  6. You can’t expect much else from the states that elected BrackO, from their guvs down to the voters who only voted once for him.

  7. I live in NC. Bev is a disgrace. The state house went to the GOP in 2010 for the first time in over 100 years. She keeps vetoing everything they pass and then they over ride her vetos. She’s out in 2012 unless she’s recalled or impeached first.

  8. Dear clueless skirt in NC we wouldn’t hold it against you when you are voted out or tarred and feathered out of office. Moron.

  9. I live and vote in North Carolina. Bev. Perdue is in hot water over the use of airplanes in her campaign and failing to properly report and document the use. THIS IS THE SAME TYPE OF CONDUCT THAT GOT FORMER DEM. GOV. MIKE EASLEY A FELONY CONVICTION!

    Long story short, she can’t run for gov from prison.

  10. I am just left speechless by the unmitigated gall of this dem pol.

    This will not go well with Americans.

    Suspending elections is NO LAUGHING MATTER.

  11. “Suspending elections”? Is she calling for martial law?

  12. Her comment came after consulting the Magic 8 Ball.

  13. Buy more ammo!

  14. That remark may not be as harmless as one may think. The dems/socialist/commies know they are in trouble. It will be interesting to see if that same sort of statement shows up again in the next few days.
    Obami is perfectly well aware that his chances of getting re-elected are getting more unrealistic by the day. How does a lefty dem still manage to stay in power? Don’t have ANY elections.
    Calling out the “flash mobs”, the unionbots, ACORN, and any other nutcase you can find is not helping, so what is left. Create a major crisis – as is the plan of those mentioned in the first sentence – and then declare marial law. It’s going to get VERY nasty people!!

  15. It’s because of IDIOTS like HER that we ought to have elections one year early!

  16. I am seeing a few 2012 bumper stickers in favor of Obama. I cant imagine what
    they are happy about.

  17. If my job performance was as dismal as hers (or her fellow Dems) – I’d petition to postpone the inevitable too. What a moron!!!

  18. What? The NC Governor supports slavery to the State?

    Who could have ever imagined that…

  19. The State would fair better if the good people of North Carolina would shutdown the stills, stop running from the Revenuers, give up moonshine a week before elections, and vote this idiot Gov out.

    My apologies in advance pop in Swansboro and aunt Mabelle and uncle Roy in Elm City.

  20. ++

    “Welcome to the New World Order”

    where the new green is the old red & vise verse..
