Video update: Perdue jokes about suspending Congressional elections for two years

• projects.newsobserver.com

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.  (Read her full remarks below.)

These front men (and women) at this level never have an original thought, and all their "ideas" are ones presented to them by the real "thinkers" that run the machinery behind the scenes. Which means, "someone" in the power broker society is circulating this idea and trying to get political stars to get the topic going. We will hear more about this.

This pathetic excuse for an American was NOT joking.
