Skip to comments.Rush: Democrat 'dead serious' about suspending elections
Posted on 09/29/2011 4:51:32 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Despite claims that she was joking, North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue is "dead serious" with her suggestion that the 2012 congressional elections be suspended, according to radio host Rush Limbaugh, and at least one group is now calling for the Democrat's impeachment.
"No, she wasn't joking," Limbaugh said today. "If they could get away with canceling elections, they would do it. That is who the Democrats of today are. That's what the American left is all about."
During a speech yesterday in Cary, N.C., Perdue stated:
"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 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. The one good thing about Raleigh is that for so many years we worked across party lines. It's a little bit more contentious now but it's not impossible to try to do what's right in this state. You want people who don't worry about the next election."
Perdue spokeswoman Chris Mackey, told the Daily Caller that it was a joke and "hyperbole."
"This is not off the cuff, she had to think about this," Limbaugh said. "She wants to cancel the elections because 2012 could dwarf 2010 in terms of Republican victory, Democrat loss. If the election were in one month, two months, the Democrat Party would end up with the smallest number of elected representatives in the House of Representatives maybe in history. That's what they all know."

Bev Perdue is not very bright and she has a career marked with a total absence of humor. Everybody in NC knows it. She was being serious and there’s no doubt about it.
That pesky constitution does get in the way.
If nothing else it exposes the desperation of the democrats.
They’re willing to keep a GOP majority in the house as long as it means they can keep their majority in the senate. However it would allow them to spend their money on a few governor’s races and the presidency.
Flat Earth stuff!
Thsi reminds me of a few crackpot Democrats talking about re-imposing the Fairness Doctrine eearly and late 2009.

From the article; "...This is a trial balloon for tyranny." Well said.
Loved the comment, "Impeach the bitch. And as for Obama? Impeach the bitch!" HAHA!
Suspend the 2012 presdidential election and get a two-fer: first black president and first dictator of the United States. Nirvana for the libs.
but when Marxist wannabee Bev slips up and lets us know how she wants a totalitarian leftist govt...it was ‘just a joke’.
these zer0 people would burn down the reichstag to blame the tea-partiers....
Picture posted for humorous and sarcastic contrast to the governor's humor and sarcasm about suspending elections.
The current democrat party meme is to end democracy.
Perdue is up for reelection in 2012 and is probably bright enough to at least read the polls.
I live in NC, and our Guv Dumplin’ is worthless.
I could say she’s about as bright as a bag of hammers, but that would be an insult to bags of hammers everywhere.
Actually, it is the belief in the Constitution by still the majority of people that keeps the progressives from actually pursuing this course of action.
They’ve proven time and again that they don’t give a hoot for the Constitution. Their insecurity over the response to its suspension is the only thing that keeps them in check, at this point.
AHHH HAHAHH AHHAHH HAHHAHHAHAHH AHHAHAHHAHAHHA (gasp) HAHHAHHAHHH HAHHAHHAH HAHH (gasp) HAHHHAHHHAHH HAHHAHHAH
That was FUNNY!!! Like the governors comments were!! REALLY FUNNY!!!!!
See how much she's cracking me up?
This is a trial balloon and it is surprising that some people support the idea. This is exactly why we have a second amendment. Tree of liberty etc...
I have one of those right here in my house. Locked and loaded.
