What to expect from this lame duck president

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Sat Nov 03, 2012 8:56 pm

Just a bit of Freeper paranoia, but it contains falsifiable predictions.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2954418/posts
On Dec 21, 2012, Obama will have had a little over a month to stew in his humiliating, crushing and unexpected defeat at the hands of the American people.

He’ll still be Commander in Chief.

He’ll still have the nuclear ‘football’. Just sitting there. Staring at him. Taunting him. Daring him. Double-eaten-dog daring him…

Here's my Bullet List of Obama's things to do in the Last Days:

• Pardon all Gitmo "political" prisoners
• Release the Blind Sheik
• Declare all US lands with energy resources under them to be UN World Heritage Sites.
• Release the names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone, anywhere who has ever provided any intel to any American agent or agency.
• Declare all US patents and copyrights null and void (Based on their recent comments, FReepers TheZMan, GraceG; Utmost Certainty; muawiyah; Boogieman; publius911; SandwicheGuy; and especially gunslinger3 think this would be a terrific idea)
• Pardon all illegal aliens
• Allow anyone from any islamist country immediate unrestricted immigration to the US as a 'refugee", forbid background checks, grant them 5 years tax free status and a generous government stipend "to get their feet on the ground".
Pardon everyone in his administration of all crimes they may have committed in the course of carrying out their mission.
• Create "The Office of the Former President"
I have highlighted in red the only one I think possible.

I also think we'll have to wait four years to find out.

We'll see.

possible or likely?

I highlighted the one I thought possible, though terribly unlikely.

Office of the Former President pretty much exists now.

"sudden and unexpected"? It's not like the election snuck up on us. And, it's too close in the polls for a "humiliating" defeat. I think the last person to be "humiliated" was Mondale.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I guess it is the way you choose to define 'humiliated" if by electoral votes, yes Mondale, if by percentage of voters : Goldwater, McGovern, and Mondale: Three Biggest Losers in American Politics
...
In 1964, Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-AZ was trounced by then President Lyndon Johnson by about 61 percent to 38 percent of the voter, winning just 52 electoral votes to Johnson's 486. In 1972, Sen. George McGovern, D-SD was beaten by then President Richard Nixon by also about 61 percent to 38 percent of the votes, winning 17 electoral votes to Nixon's 520. In 1984, then former Vice President Walter Mondale was defeated by then President Ronald Reagan by about 59 percent to 41 percent of the vote, winning just 13 electoral votes to Reagan's 525.

Code: Select all

Loser        Percentage      Electoral
Goldwater    61 to 38        52 vs 486
McGovern     61 to 38        17 vs 520
 Mondale      59 to 41        13 vs 525
Percentage wise Fritz did a tad bit better... but not much....
Then Skank Of America could start in...

Received this in an email this morning:
This is a good one....think the pastor would let me put the last two lines on our church sign??????



Two Coffees in Heaven!
Having arrived at the Gates of Heaven,
Barack Obama meets a man with a beard.
'Are you Mohammed?' he asks.
'No my son, I am St. Peter; Mohammed is higher up.'
Peter then points to a ladder that rises into the clouds.

Delighted that Mohammed should be higher than St. Peter,
Obama climbs the ladder in great strides,
climbs up through the clouds and comes into a room
where he meets another bearded man.

He asks again, 'Are you Mohammed?'
'Why no,' he answers, 'I am Moses;
Mohammed is higher still.'

Exhausted, but with a heart full of joy
he climbs the ladder yet again.

He discovers a larger room where he meets an
angelic looking man with a beard.
Full of hope, he asks again,
'Are you Mohammed?'

'No, I am Jesus, the Christ;
you will find Mohammed higher up.'

Mohammed higher than Jesus!
Man, oh man! Obama can hardly contain his
delight and climbs and climbs ever higher.

Once again, he reaches an even larger room
where he meets this truly magnificent looking man
with a silver white beard and once again repeats his question:

'Are you Mohammed?' he gasps as he is by now,
totally out of breath from all his climbing.
'No, my son, I am Almighty God, the Alpha and the Omega,
but you look exhausted.
Would you like a cup of coffee?'

Obama says, 'Yes please!'
As God looks behind him, he claps his hands
and yells out: "Yo, Mohammed, two coffees!"

Keep your trust in God;
your president is an idiot.
You will be electroplated. Resistance is potential divided by current! - Dr. Matt

We, in our wisdom, must concede that the puerile laborer known as "Hammegk" has, in this case, summarized the most likely outcome of this exercise in populist futility, as much as it pains Us to say so.

Here's my Bullet List of Obama's things to do in the Last Days:
Checking back in:

• Pardon all Gitmo "political" prisoners: nope
• Release the Blind Sheik: nope
• Declare all US lands with energy resources under them to be UN World Heritage Sites: nope
• Release the names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone, anywhere who has ever provided any intel to any American agent or agency: nope
• Declare all US patents and copyrights null and void: nope
• Pardon all illegal aliens: nope
• Allow anyone from any islamist country immediate unrestricted immigration to the US as a 'refugee", forbid background checks, grant them 5 years tax free status and a generous government stipend "to get their feet on the ground": nope
• Pardon everyone in his administration of all crimes they may have committed in the course of carrying out their mission: I think the list of convicted is limited to Gen. Patreus, and: nope
• Create "The Office of the Former President": nope

As well as being wrong about the "humiliating defeat", I think we're 0-9 here. Impressive.
