Could it be that Beverly Purdue the Democrat Governor of North Carolina let the strategy for the 2012 Elections out of the bag when she gave a recent speech where she suggested that Federal Elections in 2012 should be canceled? She explained the purpose of it would be so those in office can focus on "fixing" the country and "economy." Purdue just so happens to be the Host Governor for the 2012 Democratic National Convention. So, what do you do when the ensuing firestorm by calling for the first cancellation of Congressional and National elective offices in U.S. history spreads in this age of Facebook and Twitter? You lie your ass off and release a statement saying she was "clearly joking". Really? Well in this age of smart phones with video cameras and voice recorders you now get caught in a two-lies-for-one idiotic political gaffe. In the game of Black Jack they call that "Doubling Down". Clearly anybody listening to this actual video will hear in her own words, tone, and inflection that it was in earnest. I think she got a bargain deal picking up the available political damage control team that recently became available from Congressman Wiener's office. So this is just the latest example of stupidity followed by deceit followed by the truth will prevail.
I remember probably the finest example of this strategy when Congressman Hank Johnson was also "just joking" in the Congressional Hearings about putting more Marines on Guam and his fears that the Island would capsize and sink as a result. The video record and controlled disbelief of the Naval Admiral he was speaking to clearly suggest otherwise; and it does clearly show he is an imbecile. But, lets cancel the elections and let this guy help fix our country? Now that is no joke.Unbelievable.
