OBAMA TESTS “ELECTION CRISIS”

North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue, a Democrat, garnered a ton of unwanted national attention because of very serious comments she made to the Rotary Club in Cary, North Carolina on Tuesday, Sept. 28. In her speech, she said, “I don’t know if the president or any of the candidates for President, quite frankly, from either party, have (inaudible)… But from my perspective, when citizens and taxpayers went from (inaudible)…You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and to focus on fixing things. 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, just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.” (The audio, provided by someone in the audience, is not good quality, and portions of the tape are inaudible.) But the essence is, Perdue, who was definitely floating a trial balloon to see how reception the American people would be to increasing Obama’s term without the benefit of an election.
Perdue, and by extension, the guy in the White House, sees this scheme as something Republicans would buy into because it would let them vote against their constituency without the penalty of being thrown out of office for at least two years—or perhaps for the rest of their political lives.
On top of that, Democrats, for some strange reason, think if they can get a gaggle of stupid people to surrender their constitutionally-protected rights that will allow Barack Hussein Obama to simply issue an Executive Order and erase the Election of 2012. Perdue is not the first to suggest skipping a national election to convenience the Democratic Party (as Obama, a student of history, well knows).
