Idiot NC Governor: Hey, Forget About That Suspending Elections Thing, It Was Just Hyperbole

Yeah, I guess suggesting suspending elections in a serious tone of voice is just some subtle joke, mere hyperbole. What, you crazy wingsnutz took her seriously?

Let's examine the timeline.
Speaking to a Cary Rotary Club today, N.C. Gov. Bev Perdue suggested suspending Congressional elections for two years so that Congress can focus on economic recovery and not the next election.

"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. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that," Perdue said. "You want people who don't worry about the next election."

The comment -- which came during a discussion of the economy -- perked more than a few ears. It's unclear whether Perdue, a Democrat, is serious -- but her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the idea.
It doesn't appear a anyone did considering we live in America. After the feces hit the rotary oscillator, she backpedaled. Too late, the damage may be irreversible.
Later Tuesday afternoon, Perdue's office clarified the remarks: "Come on," said spokeswoman Chris Mackey in a statement. "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."
What we can all agree....I always notice that mealy-mouthed statement these Democrats make, as if all the people should simply agree with them because they're so wonderful or something.

No, we don't all agree, we never will all agree, although tonight I'm sure many, many of us agree this woman isn't served to fit.
The Republicans sure are taking it seriously as they look to score political points. Here's a statement from GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood:

“Now is a time when politicians need to be held accountable more than ever. To suspend an election would be removing the surest mechanism that people have to hold politicians accountable: the right to vote. Does the Governor not believe that people of North Carolina have the ability to think for themselves about whether or not the actions of elected officials are working?"

I just sit here pissed off sometimes.  Solyndra.  Fast and Furious.  Ford ads being pulled. And so much more.  Now this crap.  Say 'goodbye' Bev.

"Hyperbole" for WHAT exactly - Full Monty Martial Law?  These Democrats are getting dummer and dummer by the day.

Now why in the hell do I have to come here to read about this? I have seen nothing in the media about this woman and her ridiculous statement. Once again the Lame Stream Media is part of the problem and not the solution by ignoring shit such as this. I am furious that I have to continually go on-line to read news that doesn't fit the left-wing agenda of the traditional news sources. I hope they all go broke!

Even if it was hyperbole or some kind of sick joke, we should all be able to agree that this is the kidn of thing that should be out of the bounds of discussion in a democracy.

Good Lord CAN SOMEONE SAY SHE NEEDS TO GO, WHO IS THIS WOMAN?  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!  So liberals/media totally screw everything up and now they want total control?  To do what, watch the rats stand in more lines, go through the maze?  This woman should resign, the sooner the better and enough with the calls for violence too.  Obama is letting this happen, why, to keep his job?  He needs to resign too, for the good of the country, it's not about him, never was.

OK... not sarcasm?  It was a metaphor. No, wait, a parable.  No..... it was a dramatic reading from a play about a clueless elected official.  Yeah, that's teh ticket!
