What will he pull between the Election(after he Loses BIG) and the Inaugeration.
He will declare a national emergency and refuse to leave office.
Steal all the W’s from the WH keyboards, no, wait...
Ya just know there’s an 8 figure book deal waiting.
How is he going to get the House to pass it?
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.
“You forgot the big one: PARDONS!”
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.
ammotogo.com Use it a lot.
Free Blagojevitch !!!
I hate to sound like a two year old broken record, but I do not believe he will finish his term.
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.
If you’re waiting for 2016, you are in the wrong century. IF Obama wins, there won’t be a “2016” politically...dream on.
He will declare the election null and void and declare himself King for life.
—If I were you, I would be more worried about what Holder’s people will do if by some chance Obama is defeated.—
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.
Obama is going to get nothing handed to him. Romney is going to get slaughtered. Im just waiting for 2016. Well keep fighting til then. . . .
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.
You mean like what he says and does now?
I don't think there would be any difference.
Pardons for sure, no Rat will face Federal justice in the future.
