By that time, the public’s attention will be on other matters, and no one will care or report about him.

I think we will all need to head to DC, surround the Capitol and take shifts until Jan. 20. Nobody goes in or out! And absolutely NO votes to be taken!

As with Bill Clinton,

- pardon a bunch of thugs who knew what palms to grease
- set aside bazillions of acres of develop-able land by Exec Order, knowing that a future lefty pol will get it named Obama National Whatever.

He’ll pardon every communist, and lots of drug users/pushers.

He’ll probably issue a bunch of executive orders that will never be implemented and overturned after the new adminstration walks in.

His leftist legacy

Arranging as much $$$$ for himself and his friends to carry him through the rest of his life.

"I sincerely doubt Romney will be able to unseat “The Divine One.” I predict a vote split of 51% for “The Divine One” 49% for Romney."

That will lead to an entirely different set of actions by Dear Leader: declaration that the Tea Party is a terrorist organization, Executive Order limits on ammunition buying, gun control measures of various inventiveness, shutdown of websites opposed to the Administration, full implementation of the January 1 tax increases and automatic cuts while blaming the GOP, a new disarmament deal with Putin, price and wage controls, seizure of strategic industries, and on and on.

Can he pardon proactively? I’d rather wait until we have a new president and then go after holder and the czars for their criminal activities.

It’s a THREE-fold scenario, and most folks aren’t considering the third possibility.

He wins: four more years of whatever mischief Obama can do to harm our economy, military, space program, and weaken the bonds of civil society. Oh, and harm Israel.

He loses: Mass pardons for criminals, mass EPA regs and other administrative regulations and other mischief as he packs boxes to move out of the White House.

The “third scenario” I spoke of is the one that I personally fear the MOST: When it’s all behind him. In the past. When he’s the EX-President.

Imagine Obama with complete freedom to say (and do) whatever he’d like, because he’s not bound—even nominally—by ettiquette, tradition, or common courtesy of the Highest Office in the Land.

Imagine Obama as a street organizer thug with the personality cult of being a former president. He can get any number of cameras, donations, attract attention on a scale that Jimmy Carter and Clinton couldn’t—and what if he led a *genuine* “million man march” on D.C. and asked for supporting marches in *every* U.S. city to show solidary to whatever cause du jour he espoused?

I think people would show up.

I think the press would give him oxygen and exposure.

I think he’d pull that same characteristic brinksmanship he’s always exhibited: “boot on the throat,” “I’m all that’s between you and the mob with the pitchforks,” etc., that kinda thing. Things he’s already said (those are only two examples).

He could essentially hold this nation hostage.

Be could decide he’s not *yet* powerful enough to do it on a national scale (though I think he is). But let’s say he wanted to “pinpoint” an industry, or a particular business. He’s have the power of Occupy Wall Street, the devious, cunning planning ability of the environmental movement, and the money of leftist billionaire benefactors—all in support of him.

No, I’m afraid of what this man will do when he feels he is completely FREED from constraints of common courtesy, and yet feels his mission is left unfinished.

He’ll be a formidable and frightening former president.

I’m not operating under the idea that Romney’s going to win.

I just don’t see it. Obama’s going to have another 4 years to finish screwing everything up.

Hopefully we’ll take the Senate and put a stop to a lot of his horsecrap.

The worst case scenario would be one where he does not have to leave office; where martial law is declared...economic collapse, neutron bomb in a large city, or war in the middle east, spreading here, or major cataclysm here. Pray it doesn’t happen.

This.

I predicted riots after the 2008 election, but it was because I deluded myself into believing the electorate was not as stupid as it turned out to be. We’ll get them if he loses in November.

___________________________________________________________

Likely the economy will be heading in the right direction by then. President Romney will not get the credit for it though it will be the stimulus that Obama put in place while he was president. The people won’t buy that of course, Romney will be re-elected in a landslide.

Hopefully by then Romney will be running to the right of Michelle Bachman seeing what a TEA Party congress can do.

Well, I can dream anyway.

Interesting question. Let’s just say for the sake of discussion that he loses and loses big.

My guess is that sure, he’d pardon a bunch of criminals (all presidents have done this and most have probably gotten paid for it at least clinton we know did) - and issue a bunch of crappy E.O.s’.

But beyond that I would guess not much. Reason being is that as powerful as the POTUS is, much of this power comes because the various other branches of government whether elected, appointed or military appreciate the power and what it can do. The day he loses is the day everyone in Washington starts pointing their career compass towards Jan. 20 and the new regime. This, I think, would effectively any damage beyond that amounting to vandalism (like when clinton left) that could be done.

My fantasy would include this corrupt bastard spawn of a communist whore, being too busy attending Impeachment hearings, to have any time to further harm our country.

For what Obama and his criminal enterprise has done to our country, our futures, our children’s futures and the futures of unborn generations, JUSTICE is deserved.

This should not end with a final helicopter ride over the White House, instead, it should end with a caravan of prison buses filling the streets of D.C.

However, we now have the most ignorant electorate in the history of American elections. I believe we have the most corrupt government and media our country has ever seen. The dems are traitors, communists all, and most of our republicans are gutless cowards. So, I know I will never see my dream, only more nightmares.

Now, if Obama wins, and the bastard just might, I estimate that it will take me 6 to 8 months to sell everything I own.

Then, contrary to the wishes of my wonderful bride of over 40 years, I will buy a 35’ sailboat and leave this country. I would rather die at sea than become a slave and watch this country burn to the ground while we bitch about it from our keyboards.

I hope he will be so surprised and pissed off and "offended" by the loss that he will say, "F&*K this! You don't want me to keep going for another term?! Well, F U, I am outta here right effin' now, mofos!" and then he stomps off into the sunset the day after the election.

But I expect he will go scorched earth on us instead.

I think the ride will be wild. Buy more ammo, food, etc.

“I’m just waiting for 2016. We’ll keep fighting til then.”

If 0bama wins, there will be nothing to fight for in 2016. By then, 0bamacare will be so entrenched into our national fabric, it will never be removed. Just like social security is now. We will be a 100% socialist state, and there will be no turning back.

I don’t like Romney, and there is no guarantee he will sign a bill repealing 0bamacare. But with 0bama, it is guaranteed he will not and there is no way we get a veto-proof majority to override him.

Hate to be so glum, that is quite simply how it is.

You are not dreaming. You are experiencing a prescient vision, a glimpse of the real future.

That you think of as a dream is the probable reality

The primary factors are a House and Senate that guide Romney on a conservative course. It will not and cannot be a sharp veering right turn, but it will be a new course and the best achievable course. It will be a course of repeal and restructuring. It will be a course of legal remedies of current illegalities, jail, perhaps even death for the Gitmoites. It will be an end and a beginning. An end to Obamacare and a beginning on a new legislative effort to thrash out in public view a new course for health care will be on the agenda. There will be a new retirement progrm for those not yet come of age. It will place bets on America, the American economy and not on the governments ability to collect ever decreasing taxes.
