Bryan Preston calls it the Save democracy…by killing democracy theory. Of course her office, and some in the press, are already giving her a pass by calling it a joke but I have yet to see any video to prove she was indeed just “joking”:
As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending congressional elections for the next couple of years.
“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,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, N.C., according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”
The Raleigh paper notes “her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the idea.”
Doesn’t sound like she was joking to me.
And honestly, would it surprise anyone to hear this coming from a leftist? They all believe we should be ruled by those who are more enlightened then us regular folk. Tea party member? Eh, you’re just a dumb racist hick….only those deemed worthy by the MSM and liberal elite should be anywhere near a position of power.
Exit question…how many heads in the MSM would have exploded by now if a conservative had uttered that “joke”?
