Or while appearing at a state employees health fare, Perdue talked about her decision to give up smoking cigarettes and eating a bag of Doritos at the end of each week when she thought she was having a stroke.
"My head popped open, and I said, 'Dear God, if you let me live, I'll quit.' And I quit. I didn't quit for me. I quit because I thought about my kids not having momma or a daddy."
Or there was the time, when a television cameraman, offered a lascivious "All Right," after Perdue said she would "undress" from the TV microphone that was clipped to her jacket. " I'm an old woman," Perdue said. "You are a pervert."
She has publicly acknowledged in speeches - as she is about to go off script - that her staff has urged her to stay on script. And she runs through communications staff like water - David Kochman, Tim Crowley, Justin Guillory, Pearse Edwards and Chrissy Pearson are all former communications staffers no longer on the governor's staff.” (You may read the entire article at the Raleigh News and Observer’s website HERE.)
The governor’s staff has been “backing and filling” since the Gov made her remarks and, frankly, they have only made matters worse.
In the event you may have missed those sage remarks made by my governor here they are”
“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.”
First, the democrats claimed it was a joke. All one has to do is read the words above and you quickly see it was anything but a joke.
Then they claimed it was hyperbole. Nah. That didn’t work either. Consider the context.
Then came the excuse that it was sarcasm. It was so clearly NOT sarcasm, especially when you hear the words delivered in Purdue’s own voice, that the sarcasm excuse crashed and burned immediately.
This whole incident is simply another reminder that the democrats view the US Constitution as a speed bump rather than a stop sign to government’s power.
