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”.

  1. Ah…if liberals could get THAT accomplished, they truly would be in a Marxist utopia!

  2. If it were a joke, Bev woulda said, “So how does Luke Skywalker get thru the forest? …Ewoks”.

  3. Once again, I’m not surprised what drools out of the left’s mouths. This is their ultimate goal, dictatorship. No worries about elections and all those trappings of the constitutional republic. Just tell the unwashed masses what to do and what will be done by the much smarter than them elite. So much simpler. NOT gonna happen here, Bev.
    My bet is that her political career is over. If I were a legislator in her state, I’d be working some sort of impeachment process to get rid of her now. The Dems don’t stand a chance in NC this next election. The conservatives will, hopefully, use that sound bite in every political ad in the future. With the voice over, this is what the dems ultimately want, complete control over the citizens of NC.

  5. […] same Governor Perdue who said we ought to suspend elections so ObaMao can force more of his massively unpopular and wildly unsuccessful socialism down our […]

  6. Kevin, that is the battle, turning back the “dark side” in NC and all over the nation. The Tea Parties in NC have already started the ball rolling by scheduling rallies in Raleigh, the capitol, in front of the Guv’s manision. They are also pushing for a recall of Perdue. At the least, we can hope her statements will lead to less dems in the NC state government, possibly even the guv’s chair. We can “hope”, too.

  7. Indeed, we can hope!!!!!

    As Yoda tells Luke when Luke asks if the Dark Side is more powerful…”No no no…quicker…easier…more seductive!”

    But not more powerful. The good guys have a chance (if they don’t shoot their own foot off in the primaries!)

  8. I lived in North Carolina back when it was a very conservative state, used to listen to Jesse Helms radio program on the Tobacco States Network before he ever ran for the senate. The liberals in NC came from the northeast, flocked up, moved south and unfortunately, brought their political beliefs with them. They need to flock back up and get the flock outta there.

    (If you’re old enough to remember conversations between Luke and Yoda, you’re old enough to remember Jesse Helms, you youngun’s can Google him.)

  10. Yeah Kevin, Ol’ Jesse went to the Northeast business men and told them about tax breaks, right to work laws, better climate than they were used to, etc., so they came down, looked around and said “Wow, this is a really good deal……let’s change it!”
