The closer America gets to Election Day, the more some worry about the possibility of there not being one.
Obama is smiling all the way through the polls, and it may not merely be whistling past the cemetery this time.
The fear of Obama suspending elections came long before the presidential election campaign officially began. It was almost one year ago when North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue made suspended elections an idea whose time has come.
I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we wont hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover, Gov. Perdue, a Democrat said, according to a report by the Raleigh News & Observer. You want people who dont worry about the next election. (Fox News, Sept. 27, 2011).
The trial balloon for Obamas suspension of elections had been sent up overnight.
When public outrage followed Perdues suggestion, her staff quickly issued a statement suggesting she wasnt really calling for suspension of elections.
Governor 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 whats best for the people they serve, a spokesman said.
Canada Free Press (CFP) believes that Perdue, who is suiting herself and not running for re-election this time out, was the first person to give oxygen to the idea of Obama suspending elections.
You do not have to be in the Conspiracy Camp to worry that something is amiss in this Election. It is not as the media is presenting it, just an election like any other with the Repubs and Dems dragging out skeletons and leaving them for all to see out on the campaign trail.

Federals cannot suspend state elections. Elections are held at the state level.
Like Stalin, Mao, Castro, Mugabe?
And the states most likely to suspend are ones that Baraq would likely win, LOL.
A Civil War with the country split in 2 did not even delay 2 Presidential and 3 Congressional elections.
I heard all this back when Clinton was president too. Same conspiracy, different year.
But, what if most Secretary of States are George Soros property? And what if huge purchases of ammo by the Feds need something to do? And what if the company that COUNTS THE VOTES (SCYTL of Spain) complies with the Feds orders NOT to count them?
Hunger Games as an equivalent? I watched it the other night, thought it was rather silly and not even that entertaining.
If he did suspend them it would just create a Constitutional crisis, as the powers of his office would still lapse on Jan. 20. Unless the military is willing to back him in a full-blown coup.
I would not doubt it if ZERO tries it!!
Øbama doenst have the balls to try this.
Dont make me drive to DC and straighten him out...
This is a load of crap, even Bozo knows better than to try this sh**.
One way to delay an election is for the NAACP to come in at the last minute and sue states like Alabama that had districts redrawn by Republicans for violating the Voting Rights Act. Far fetched? Just ask the folks down in Evergreen who won the local elections a few weeks back. They will tell you that the election was put on hold because someone wanted a council district line moved over by one street because it violated their rights. Can they do it nationally? Who knows, but messing with the elections on a larger level is within the realm of possibilities. They may not stop the elections, but they can create confusion to keep turnout down.
Scytl is not the the vote counter in all election districts, just the districts that have contracted with them.
This was the same crap posted by the Left in 2004 and 2008. It’s straight alarmist BS and the idea that anyone would believe this is actually going to happen is pretty silly.
Will there be cheating? Sure.
Will some people vote twice? Sure
Will some ballots not get counted or others get counted twice? Sure.
But suspending the election? No way.
Judge Alex Kozinski
There COULD BE more OWS style pandemonium orchestrated
by surrogates of Team Obama, but they will have an even MORE
negative impact on Obama’s chances in the election, which is
why I ultimately don’t think it will happen.
And any noise from the WH and its agencies of authority about
“suspending” elections will make ‘Bama look like the wannabe
dictator we always knew he was.
Ain’t gonna happen.
“Wouldn’t be prudent”.
The only way it COULD happen would be if the protest found
a way to take on another identity and make themselves appear to be in some way “Pro Romney” and ANTI-Obama.But I don’t think these folks can think that quickly on their feet.
James Taggart’s response to ‘Directive 10-289’: “...we’ve got to ‘stop’ in order to move forward’...
We didn’t postpone elections during the civil war or during WWI or WWII for that matter did we? So why, praytell would we postpone them now? Even if there’s a nuclear bomb blast in the middle east or another 911. We still vote. MOre reason to vote.
