Remember I said something about this last month when I wrote, “Or will he just ignore the results and the Constitution, like he has all through his reign, and just refuse to relinquish office?” People told me I was being paranoid. “Hopeychangey would never suggest that elections be invalidated because (fill in the blank…)”
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 story asks if she is serious. I would not be surprised if she was. Remember, socialists are willing to do this sort of thing and a true-blue Alinskyite would have no trouble at all with it. I believe Obastard is researching some way, any way, he can call off the election because it is getting increasingly unlikely he would be reelected. Politicians always send up trial balloons and having someone like Perdue say what she did is part of sending up the trial balloon.
It’s not just Perdue, either. As Confederate Yankee pointed out:
Only days ago, former Obama OMB director, Citigroup executive, and current Council on Foreign Relations fellow Peter Orszag published an article in The New Republic entitled “Too Much of a Good Thing: Why we need less democracy.”
Once is a gaffe (defnied as when a politican accidently tells the truth). Twice is a campaign.
The Left nutroots will buy it. Will the independents be lulled by the resulting firestorm? Oh, bet you don’t find the Lamestream media reporting this!
