Only One Reason for Joint Session--Resignation
HopeSprings

Posted on 09/01/2011 7:27:16 PM PDT by HopeSprings

The request by President Obama to speak to a joint session of Congress simply to give a speech on the economy seems inappropriate and unprecedented. But is that what he really wants to achieve?

I think that he will actually offer his resignation to save the country from deteriorating further since he took office. It will be his grand gesture...his martyrdom...that will allow him to avoid a bitter defeat in 2012.

If you don't think this is true, then spread the word of this idea, and maybe it will take hold!

A nice thought but don’t forget that barry is a narcissist. It will never happen.

Keep on hoping for change there would ya... now back to reality.. That is not the move of a narcissist. Sounds more like some crap Ulstermann would make up to spread rumors.

Obastard would more likely demand that all of Congress resign before he would willingly go.

I don’t find any signs of a troll in his earlier responses, although they are, indeed, infrequeent.

It would be great if Zero resigned. But he’s far too full of himself to do so. Nothing is his fault. It’s just that everyone is too stupid to understand his true greatness.

And meantime, he’s getting plenty of golf, parties, and vacations. Plus, he WANTS to destroy our country. That part doesn’t bother him one bit.

The Malignant Narcissist in Chief BELIEVES that every WORD he speaks is worthy of a Joint Session of Congress! There is nothing, and I do mean NOTHING that would ever cause Oaf-bama to resign from office!

He won’t resign because he is secretly glad that the country that he hates is being destroyed.

That’s a nice thought but....It will NEVER HAPPEN! Obama would throw Biden under the Bus and announce Chris Christie as his new VP before resigning! (Well they are suppossed to meet in Patterson NJ this Sunday!) (To add another conspiracy theory to the batch.) LOL!!!!!!

The ONLY reason for a narcissistic, arrogant, assho1e like nobama to request a joint session before Congress would be because he is a narcissistic, arrogant, assho1e. It certainly won’t be because of anything he’ll read off the teleprompter.

I’m so glad I quit watching TV. I can spend that time being productive by FReeping. And maybe skimming the live thread.

I adoped HopeSprings back in 2000 when Bush was fighting Al Gore for the Florida vote. So, yeah, I’ve been around, and, although I’ve contributed here irregularly, I do enjoy the posts here. Furthermore, I don’t just sit here trolling. I campaign for others, participate in protests (including Tea Party events), and donate heavily to key conservative leaders. Wanna speculate about me anymore?

LOL. If you actually believe this you are incredibly politically naive.

The speech will be a wish list of the same crap Hussein has been asking for in the past. More "investment" (aka: stimulus), an extension of some tax breaks that Republicans will probably go along with, a heaping helping of blaming everyone but himself for our economic woes, etc.

Obama will NEVER resign, and he may well win again in 2012.

Obama's entire life has been about learning how to "stick it to the man."

He has no idea what to do or how to do it now that he is "the man".

” ( - - - I think that he will actually offer his resignation - - -) “

Interesting to speculate as to why Professor You Lie might resign.

You lie is now a lame duck just about ready to compile his Slick Willy style pardon lists.

Speaking of which I wonder if You Lie would resign so that his Secretary of Statements, Hilly might have a chance to bring the Hilly and Billy Show back to The White House?

Hilly already has the silverware.

Maybe you can convince Biden to resign, too. But then we’d have Boehner. (He’d be an improvement, but still miles togo to get to good.)

I can’t remember who is after the Speaker; is it Sen pro-temp or Sec of State? (Doesn’t matter - it’s pick your poison w/Dirty Harry or Hillary. I think I’d opt for the Jonestown Kool-aid instead)

OK, I googled it. Inouye? Where the heck was I when that happened? I feel dumb now (I hope you know how that feels, seeing as you started this mess by thinking Obozo would resign) so I think I will call it a night.

What a difference a missing hyphen can make!

I’ve just gotten a secret message from HopeySpringey with an apology to y’all for the inadvertently misleading thread. He meant, HS explains, not “resign”, but “re-sign”, meaning the Indonesian-Kenyan is planning in his upcoming speech to RE-SIGN for the years 2013-2017!

Cheers!

The headline is a huge stretch, but it is very unusual to for the President to call a joint session of Congress for a speech on creating jobs.

For the record, Bush in his 8 years only asked for it one time following 9/11.

Clinton also asked for it only once during his 8 years.

Obama is on his 2nd with less than three years in office.

Barry is such a narcissist that he thinks his speeches are important enough for a joint session of Congress.

A resignation is wishful thinking, and nothing more.
