Scratch a Liberal…[Updated]

…and you know what you’ll find (h/t LC Jerry):

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.”

Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members of Congress to focus on the economy. “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,” Perdue said.

Hell yeah. Then the filthy liberal fascists in Congress, not to mention SCOAMF himself, won’t have to worry about their skanky, totalitarian arses being kicked to the curb in the next election while they systematically dismantle whatever remains of our Republic. Why should elected representatives have to worry about the electoral consequences from the people they claim to represent, after all?

As LC & IB angrywebmaster puts it:

Funny how the Liberals are always screaming that conservatives want to institute a dictatorship but they’re the ones trying to do it.

It’s called “projection”, and it’s evident in everything liberals accuse conservatives of wanting to do. Listen closely to them and you’ll soon have a complete playbook for everything they intend to do if or when they can get away with it.

There’s just this one thing that the commie slut Perdue (and the rest of the drooling liberal fascists) keep forgetting: You need to disarm the populace first. That “tiny” mistake is going to cost you dearly if you ever try to do what we all know that you really want to do.

Suspend democracy?

Try it, and you’ll be the ones who end up getting suspended.

From a tree.

Thatisall.

[Update] Just in time to make the gaffe even worse, They come out with their own new spin. The Guv was joking

UPDATE 5:17 p.m.:

Perdue press secretary Chris Mackey claims the governor was joking when she made the comment.

“Come on … Gov. 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 what’s best for the people they serve,” Mackey said in an email to The DC.

Riiigggghhhhto…!

Michael Kinsley famously said that a gaffe is when a politician accidentally tells the truth. Why do I get the feeling that the truth this cow is trying to tell is that either she won’t be re-elected, or that she doesn’t WANT to be re-elected? Either way – Move Along Home, Bev. That’s valuable oxygen you’re sucking in – there… Read more »

Taping a frag grenade to their mouths would be far more efficient (and entertaining).

I’m going to have to agree w/ Gingis. I would have laughed and ridiculed anyone who would have been able to tell me all the violations of our Constitution (that have already occured) as a lunatic off their meds. Now, I believe that we are just starting down the road spelled out in Revelations. I fear that w/politicians like this… Read more »

Lemmee translate Perdue for you. Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members of Congress to focus on the economy. “I can’t buy votes and reduce the deficit at the same time.” This is what ALL of Congress does. Yes, even my representative, JoAnn “Hey, let’s subsidize natural gas vehicles!” Emerson (R-MO). So Perdue’s answer is to… Read more »

Is *that* the result she wants? I don’t think so, but never underestimate the ability of self-delusion!

That’s exactly what they want. Once the shooting starts, the President can unilaterally invoke the Riot Act,
institute Martial Law, suspend habeas corpus, and then the Constitution en toto.
They never pass up a crisis, and manufacturing crisiis is what they are all about.

I hope this isn’t trolling … but it is true enough that politicians more focused on getting elected than doing what is right is definitely a problem. The real problem, though, is that the special-interest lobbies really run the government, when you get right down to it. Most Congressmen have to make so many deals and call in so many… Read more »

OT to this discussion is that Posse Comitatus was grossly violated by Lincoln in prosecuting the War of Northern Aggressiom

I don’t think this is correct.

The Posse Comitatus Act was passed as a direct result of reconstruction in 1878.
