Knowing your interest in how previous presidents faced national crises, I recommend an example you might have missed. It's an Oval Office speech noted not for its oratory, but for its surprising content. The parallels to your situation are striking.

If Obama were smart, he’d invest all of his money in a Dow Jones Index Fund, and then resign.

The Dow would shoot up 2,000 points on the news.

While I agree realize that LBJ was not being entirely altruistic.

1. He was afraid of running against RFK.
2. He knew (at some level) that his heart was giving out on him.
3. He was basically a beaten man regarding Vietnam.

I can’t remember if LBJ resigned between the McCarthy primary win in NH and RFK declaration, or after the RFK declaration, but in either case he feared (and hated) RFK.

It wasn’t resignation Goodwin wants. It is a declaration of not running under any circumstances in 2012.A Sherman statement.

Nah, the Bumbler in Chief doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the country and he loves the perks too much to give them up.

Considering how he sees himself and how he has been portrayed by the leftists as the great messiah there is no way he would EVER humble himself to put the nation first and his desire to be king second. Johnson was just a liberal. This guy is a self-serving egotistical, radical fanatic. Oh yeah AND a complete moron.

He could start by producing an authentic BC.

Will not happen, because we would probably have to throw half our congresscritters in jail for conspiracy.

Come to think of it, even without a BC he is still ineligible to be POTUS because his pappy was never a US citizen.

Is it time to consider a petition requesting the resignation of "The Divine One?" Of course he would not resign, but it may generate enough shock waves to initiate some effective action. It would further relieve some right wing anger.

The petition could be sent to the White House and Media centers.

Actually Baraq has just transitioned them into the progressive life style of unemployment comp, food stamps, school lunch, free cell phones & internet, and section 8 housing.

Get real, NoMomma Obama has more fans than Limbaugh. Does anyone think Limbaugh will resign?
