Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Dem NC governor: Why don’t we suspend the Constitution so we can get stuff done?

Daily Caller has the story, as well as the audio.  Excerpt:

f it was a joke, North Carolina Democratic Governor Bev Perdue needs to polish her delivery.

Newly released audio contradicts the claims of Perdue’s press team that her call Tuesday for suspending Congressional election was a joke or hyperbole. In the recording, her tone is matter-of-fact and her comments are part of a serious speech.

“Listen to the Governor’s words: She wasn’t joking at all,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood told The Daily Caller. “The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability.”

“If it was a joke, what was the set-up?,” Lockwood adds. “What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter? It took them three hours to say it was a ‘joke,’ but when that flopped it became ‘hyperbole.’ We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad idea.”

The spin from the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) is that the guv was “just kidding”.  Seriously, the humor-impaired left is suddenly in tune with what is funny and what isn’t, and what is intended to be humor and what isn’t?  Anywho, listen to the audio and judge for yourself.

I’m sure the goob(ernor) is worried mightily about her own hide and that of her fellow NC Democrats.  Dems took a HUGE pounding in NC in 2010, and the state legislature turned red for the first time since Reconstruction.  The new legislature is going to redraw districts in very red ways, too.

I’m not worried about elections being suspended because some leftist hayseed thinks they should be.  No, this is just another example in an already-long list of them of leftists holding their own perceived intellect in such a delusional high regard and the intellect of the individual voter in such condescendingly low regard.  Leftists know that their ways aren’t going to be embraced by Normal America, especially in the South, so they need to remove barriers to their socialist utopia…even/especially if the barriers are erected by the “great unwashed”.

Quote of the day, “Obama’s campaign and metaphors” edition

Heh.

President Obama’s chief political adviser is calling President Barack Obama’s road to re-election a “Titanic struggle.”

And David Axelrod also concedes that the Democratic president doesn’t have the wind at his back.

This country would be well served if B.O.’s campaign met the same fate as the Titanic.
