Perdue: 'We look like Mississippi' after amendment vote (NC Guvnah steps in it yet again!)

GREENVILLE, N.C. — Passage of a constitutional amendment defining marriage as solely between a man and a woman makes North Carolina "look like Mississippi," Gov. Beverly Perdue said Friday.

Perdue was in Greenville as part of her tour to tout her proposed state budget for 2012-2013. The governor was responding to a question on the amendment from a reporter from WITN-TV in Washington (http://bit.ly/JptsXG ).

"I think it's wrong for North Carolina, clearly and simply," she said. "People around the country are watching us and they're really confused, to have been such a progressive, forward-thinking, economically driven state that invested in education and that stood up for the civil rights of people, including the civil rights marches back in the '50s and '60s and '70s.

"Folks are saying, 'What in the world is going on in North Carolina?' We look like Mississippi."

What kind of mind-control laser beam are fags using on US politicians?

They make up ~2% of the population but have governors and the president acting crazy on a daily basis now?

I'm glad Perdue doesn't’ think like Mississippi. I'd hate to think we'd elect a dumb ass like her now. Ray Mabus was a big mistake but we learned.

This is like the hand wringing the dems are going through in WV, after Jenks (the Texas inmate) got 41% in the primary on Tuesday against Dear Leader Obama. The angst they are experiencing is funny to listen to. My county is one of the counties where the majority of dems voted for Jenks. The elitist types in flyover country need to move to the coasts, so they will not be embarrassed by the unwashed masses.

Why do people vote for these dull plodding fag-hag hacks? The modern Democrat party is a cultural and religious wasteland suitable for those who have sold their souls...... for power

Why is everything seen as a right? Is marriage a right? Heck, if we go by the same standards that are applied in the homosexual community on this issue, if marriage is a right, then I have the right to go out and clunk the next good looking 18 year old young lady in the head, shove her in my Blazer and take her to the Justice of the Peace to marry this poor, lonely middle-aged guy that I am. Then my poor, elderly mother can see some grandkids. They keep saying equality, well, Sadie Hawkins style, if the 18 year old young lady wanted me, I'll go peacefully. B-)

I just hate this comparison to civil rights that was started in the 1950's and 1960's. Why is everything a civil right deal? Why is everything a right? Should we all have rights to free utilities, a free car, free food, free computer, free playstation, free color TV, free house, free sex, free clothes, you name it.

There are times that I even question Martin Luther King's tactics on civil rights, instead of the content of one's character, the tack that he should have taken was "that a person is an individual, they should be left alone, as long a they don't hurt anyone else, to achieve their goals and get through life by the abilities they have, the skills that have and learn and move upward by their merits."

In a legal sense under our system, Obama is correct that it is up to each state to determine their laws on marriage (although if I had to vote for Pennsylvania, I'd vote "no"), if any, but I know it is a bone to detract from the real issues like the economy, Iran and so on.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said Friday it was “petty” for North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue to insult Mississippi while bemoaning that voters in her state approved a ballot measure banning same-sex marriage.

Yeah, I don't think there's any flaw there. If MLK were able to take a look at the character of most of today's public figures, and society in general, I think he'd find them seriously lacking.

Never met a drecky gargoyle but if you say Perdue is one, I’ll take your word for it.

She’s such as tough POS that she wouldn’t even make a good Perdue Chicken Pot Pie. Perhaps a Chicken Potted Pie, but not much else.

How did she ever get elected? Did a “dumb bomb” go off on election day?

Now you know why we have to help the mentally ill - to keep them from getting elected to public office.

You ask, "Did a dumb bomb go off on election day?"

Yes, it did. She rode into town on Obama's coat tails in 2008 when Obama and the Chicago Mob pulled off a Coup de etat' and we lost our Democracy to a Thugocracy.

You really have to admire how Democrat politicians respect and stand up for their voters.

They really do hold us common folk in contempt, don't they?

Just one problem for the elite, though. There are more of us than there are of them.

And we've got the vote.

do all those good things and do one more good thing: Keep marriage between one man and one woman. It’s not too hard.

Apparently she is not worried about running for re-election.

Always in the best interest for the Pols to ‘dis’ their constituents.

Remember a few years back when that DA former speaker sued his constituents in WA(?) when they booted him. Think that was during Newt’s ‘reign of terror’ election in ‘94.

Interesting to find out that Lugar (GRTBR) no longer had a residence in Indiana whom he has been representing for the last 50 years (give or take).
Don’t suppose he and his family voted in BOTH homes of record do you?

Definitely has to be the reason ‘they’ over ran us with the wide ranged Absentee Voting, so people who have residences in multiple states can vote in all of them....

Ain’t it grand???

I wish Oregon looked more like Mississippi.

Oh.....wait............they do!

They voted 57% - 43% to define marriage as one women and one man, and they put it in their constitution!

How does this happen?

Hell, I was born/raised in Rochester NY and came to Mississippi in 1986 with the Air Force. 28 years later and it’s my home and I consider this moron’s attempt at a slur a badge of honor for Mississippi.

Beverly is obviously an ingorant twit in addition to being a worthless road whore. From the outcome of the vote, it very well may be that North Carolina has as many good, god fearing people as Mississippi and the comparison may be warranted.

Any state should should consider itself lucky to be compared to Mississippi.

No, Governnor. You put the matter before the people, and the people spoke. Plainly and simply. Your CONSTITUENCY voted, and as a body, decided to define a marriage as being between a man and a woman. It is YOUR JOB to support the will of the people of the state you REPRESENT in this matter, and set aside your personal feelings.

If you personally choose not to agree, that's your right. But your role is to support the will of the people and not run around whining like a spoiled child!
