The News-Observer claims in their headline that she was joking but I think thats because they cant quite believe a sitting governor would be so stupid as to say this publicly. In fact, in the story itself they note, Its unclear whether Perdue, a Democrat, is serious but her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the idea.
Hey, you know what would vastly improve American politics? Much less public accountability.
You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things. 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. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. The one good thing about Raleigh is that for so many years we worked across party lines. Its a little bit more contentious now but its not impossible to try to do whats right in this state. You want people who dont worry about the next election.
And I thought this was another great John Semmens’ works...what an idiot!
What the hey,,,lets cancel the Presidential election too so obama can focus on the economy.
No, still have elections. Only the candidate approved by the Party Secretary General may run for each position.
That’s how Saddam Hussein got 99.999% of the vote.
Impeach her NOW.
I’m not so sure she was joking!
Yes, indeed... her state is about to NOT send representatives to Congress. I am sure both parties will appreciate that.
Cancel the session of congress, or limit their meeting to a month at most.
She wasn’t joking. IMHO
If republicans were in control of the senate, I’m sure she would have a different opinion.
The libs are so confident now, and with the full backing of 99 % of the media, that they now feel they can openly call for cancelling elections. The msm will do one of two things:
1) Agree with her.
2) Claim she was only joking.
Obama can focus on the economy?
ahahaha! Very funny!
Hey Gov. Babe, resign NOW!
Somebody had to be the first to say it.
NAtional Socialist Obamunism in action.
You don’ need no stinkin’ elections, kiddies!
DER MESSIAH is already Fuhrer now.
This kind of mindless drivel from Perdue or any other Democrat is ALWAYS code for “raise taxes”.
Or they could go with my tagline and we could just start fresh.
