I keep hearing this. They keep existing. And they have a lot of money. And they have a legitimate shot at winning the House and Senate. The GOP candidate for President is more a neocon than a teabagger.

I'd say right now the best case for the dems is 50-50 in the Senate, and that assumes the Indy from Maine caucuses with the dems, which he hasn't committed to at all. They have a lot of freaks on the right, but they are still very much in the game.

These people have so many explicit violent fantasies.

It's almost as if they were hoping to carry them out themselves.

What I never understood about the assassination angle, is that if GOD FORBID Obama were killed, Biden would become President. Biden would most likely continue all the policy objectives of the previous administration, so the only difference between him and Obama would be skin color.

Oh wait.

Now I get it.

Nevermind.

I don't understand why someone would want to assassinate ANY president. sure, they might be jerks but c'mon...we're not yet to the point where we cannot address our political differences via congress or the courts.

They've seen every episode of 24 and every Chuck Norris movie. And they've all joined the NRA and gotten their concealed-carry Glocks. They are SOOOOO ready for when the shiat gets serious.

They're the white equivalent of the underwear bomber. You'd pity the idea but for the sheer numbers and the risk of being caught in the crossfire.

IIRC, the GOP caucuses are members only in both the House and Senate, so Independents either caucus with the DhimmyCraps or not at all.

Obama doesn't an October Surprise. He's running against the most inept candidate since Mondale.

I agree, I don't understand why someone would want to do it either, but it has happened. Lee Harvey Oswald's brother Robert said that Lee wanted to be famous, he wanted everyone to know his name. Well, he got his wish. I don't know if the thirst for infamy is what drove him to do it, but it's not likely we'll ever know.

Part of the point I was making was that if people are so sick of the Obama administration they want to kill him, they're not really going to get their way. Biden isn't going to suddenly pull a 180 on everything Obama did in his 1st term, or what he wanted to do in his 2nd. They'd have to take out both Obama and Biden to get John Boehner in the White House, and [your deity here] help us all if that ever happens.

Jews normally vote Democratic. Jews control the media. Ergo, Obama taking over the media would secure his re-election.

I have family members thoroughly convinced that Obama is going to do "something with Russia" using executive orders if he is re-elected.

what that "something" is, they cannot articulate (surprise, surprise).

other reasons for holding their noses and voting for Romney include that Obama hates American values, but can't articulate why either (just like the Tea Party leader on CNN), and that Obama is disrespecting his mom when he identifies himself as black.

He's still in the Senate, you know. He's the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. Talking about Obama's foreign policy record vs. Mitt Romney's is something he's more than capable of doing. Just because he ran for President and lost doesn't mean he's persona non grata to the DNC.

Not to be too pedantic, but Germany's national healthcare system was set up by Bismark in the 1880's.

Yeah, but their theories are ridiculous and almost exclusively rely on the assumption that nobody but tea partiers and their silent allies the mainstream republicans and libertarians are armed.

Essentially it's just porn for grampa, who can only get an erection by picturing himself shooting a kid with an occupy shirt and probably that black kid with the saggy pants he bumped into at Subway.

I thought that Bush was going to do the same thing. So apparently I was the liberal version of a teabagger back then. I can't imagine the butthurt we'll see in November. I wonder if they'll be some sort of "Stroke Boom" as they all wig out?

The Gleichschaltung - the whitewashed embodiment of Obama's policies - wasn't implemented until 1933.

The Iran one doesn't seem too crazy only because I wouldn't be that surprised if Israel tried to force the US' hand right before the election by preemptively attacking Iran. I'm sure they'd rather have Romney in charge than Obama, and I don't know how Obama would do if he had to say "no" to Israel right before the election.

There was a poster making the same Russia point during the Thursday DNC thread. He couldn't articulate it either. Just "doesn't this alarm you?". "Can't you see what this could mean?" type of questions.

No, no, no. What you do is catch Biden in some sort of sex scandal and force him to resign. Then you kidnap one of Obama's kids and then John Goodman, I mean John Boehner takes over the White House....

I'm not saying that there is any evidence what so ever that Tea Party butt hurt will bleed over into actual organized action, if Obama wins. However, I have heard too many predictions of doom and 1000 years of darkness to NOT think that there are some fringe morons that will finally fall off the cliff on November 7th, when they realize they did not get their way about eliminating the "black guy with the funny name." So, yeah, I think I'll stay out here in the country unless an actual emergency occurs from November 7 to around the end of December (allowing time for the 2012 doomsday crowd to calm down too.) Purely a decision of personal safety, especially since I'm well known as "radically to the left" in this county.
