Asa Phelps: antidisestablishmentarianism: doyner: seekrit muslin

Didn't Hillary start that in the primaries with the birth certificate thing? I don't really remember.

Yes. Yes she did.


No, she didn't.

Internet chain emails alleging Obama was a Muslim began emerging in 2007. No one claims "credit" for them, of course, but the Fwd: Fwd: Fed: chain email was then as it it now a tactic used by right wingers.

In 2007 a religious based e-mag called Insightmag[dot]com published a discredited story that "Hillary's team has questions about Obama's Muslim background".

2 days later FOX and Friends highlighted the article without discrediting it. Hill and co denied the article and any connection to the story whatsoever a day later.

Hill admittedly added fuel to the fire when she made her famous "as far as I know" modifier when asked if Obama was a Muslim during a tv interview but have no doubt that that smear campaign was originated and perpetuated by the GOP.

Elizabeth Warren

I'd say she's up there, but a lot of what she is trying to do (kick the banks and Wall St in the balls) is behind the scenes and she doesn't get much attention for it. She'd need some major legislation to get passed to propel her to the forefront.

Warren's a no-go, no matter how much I love her. Biden doesn't ooze presidential gravitas, no matter how much I love him as Vice. Hillary's the default, establishment candidate, depending on if she runs. By the time 2016 rolls around, Booker will have molded himself as Obama 2.0 and could make a "hope and change" run at it. He's already running the exact same plays that Obama did to get elected.

I'm not a Warren supporter but if the inbreds keep up like this much longer we could run farking Stalin and still walk away with it.


I wouldn't get too cocky, but I am optimistic.  If the Tea Party split happens before 2016, which looks likely, the results will be interesting.  With the GOP vote split, I wouldn't be surprised if every "battleground" state ended up going to the Democrat, and maybe even one or two of the solidly red ones.

Didn't Hillary start that in the primaries with the birth certificate thing? I don't really remember.

I think so.  I wonder if she regrets opening that can of worms.

Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign was so slimy and nasty that it drained any bit of enthusiasm I might have had about her and made me support Obama that much more.  I still would have voted for her over McCain and Palin, but I would not have felt good about it at all.

I hope she doesn't pul the same shiat in 2016, but I am not holding my breath.

I hope she doesn't run, to be honest.  What I'd like is for her to hint at it up until the race starts in earnest.  Let the GOP put all their focus on her in the meantime.  I don't know he the leading candidate would be right now.  I'm not sure if there's any obvious front-runners for it, other than maybe Biden?

I doubt it.  That has created volume upon volume of GOPBaggers saying unbelievably stupid shiat and doing even more stupid shiat.  I'd say it was the greatest troll of all times if I didn't know just how selfish her original motives were when she "accidentally" started all that insanity.  Either way, that little gem has done more to make the GOP look like frothing dumbshiats than just about anything I can think of, possibly even surpassing that whole starting wars on false pretense thing.  And they keep coming back with "Well, Hillary started it, so derp-derp" as if that makes them look any less tarded.

That's true, Grover. You guys DID win 30 Governorships. And 26 of those Governors rejected the Medicare expansion for their states, purely out of spite. And now 26 states of our Union have a lot of poor people scratching their heads, wondering why their state insurance exchanges are so crappy. And a lot of them are probably blaming it on Obama, because they don't know how their own Governors farked them over.

So...uh...good job, I guess.

jaytkay: MustangFive: In my dream world, we'd see Speaker of the House Obama passing legislation in partnership with Senate Majority Leader Biden (with members being pulled into line by House Majority Whip Bill Clinton) and signed into law by President Hillary Clinton.

Personally I'd like to see President Warren appoint Supreme Court justices Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton.


I'm down with President Warren and Supreme Court Justice Hillary Clinton, but I think Bill would be the best House Majority Whip ever. The man can schmooze like no other and knows how to play hardball, FOAD politics.

phaseolus: Or better yet, Pelosi back as Speaker of the House, and Barack Obama as Chief Justice.

I like this combo very much.

So -
President Elizabeth Warren
Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Senate Majority Leader Biden
House Majority Whip Bill Clinton
Chief Justice Barack Obama
Associate Justice Hillary Clinton

Bonus GOP Head-assplodey Goodness:
Vice President Jerry Brown
Secretary of State Al Franken
Attorney General Andrew Cuomo
Secretary of Homeland Security Susan Collins

When the Republicans win, it's a mandate by the people to follow through on their policies.
When the Republicans lose, it's only because the will of the people was ignored and it's up to them to push through their policies.

Once the GOP embraces reality, maybe they'll have more success.


President George W. Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Dear Mr. President:
The media tells us that you have received the largest number of popular votes of any president in America's history. Congratulations!
In your re-election, God has graciously granted America-though she doesn't deserve it-a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. You have been given a mandate. We the people expect your voice to be like the clear and certain sound of a trumpet. Because you seek the Lord daily, we who know the Lord will follow that kind of voice eagerly.
Don't equivocate. Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil. You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you.
Had your opponent won, I would have still given thanks, because the Bible says I must (I Thessalonians 5:18). It would have been hard, but because the Lord lifts up whom He will and pulls down whom He will, I would have done it. It is easy to rejoice today, because Christ has allowed you to be His servant in this nation for another presidential term. Undoubtedly, you will have opportunity to appoint many conservative judges and exercise forceful leadership with the Congress in passing legislation that is defined by biblical norm regarding the family, sexuality, sanctity of life, religious freedom, freedom of speech, and limited government. You have four years-a brief time only-to leave an imprint for righteousness upon this nation that brings with it the blessings of Almighty God.
Christ said, "If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my father honour" (John 12:26).
The student body, faculty, and staff at Bob Jones University commit ourselves to pray for you-that you would do right and honor the Savior. Pull out all the stops and make a difference. If you have weaklings around you who do not share your biblical values, shed yourself of them. Conservative Americans would love to see one president who doesn't care whether he is liked, but cares infinitely that he does right.
Best wishes.
Sincerely your friend,
Bob Jones III
President

The reality is they won their elections at the exact same time as Obama. Recall how Obama lost his house majority? If you're reading chicken bones that doesn't mean "pass bit of everything that this guy dreams up," it means Americans want some moderation. Which we aren't getting and Obama: you'renothelping.jpg

Obamacare is beyond moderation. The Republicans watered it down again and again and again before the vote - where they all voted nay.

We would have Medicare (which teabaggers love) for all if moderation had prevailed.

HeartBurnKid: You know what?  I'm glad Obama finally found his pimp hand.  He spent 4 1/2 years bending over backwards to try to build consensus, and what he ended up with is accusations of being a tyrant and the Antichrist.  Looks like he finally got the message, and is going to start playing hardball from now on.


Realistically, he has another year or 18 months. After that, he's lame duck and the dog and pony show has moved along to the next big thing. I hope he uses the time wisely, and with tremendous force.

John Quincy Adams was President from 1825 to 1829.

Then he returned to Congress from 1830 to 1848.

So basically yes.

Andrew Johnson (the Clinton of his day) also returned to serve in the Senate after his presidency.

There's nothing to prevent it. John Quincy Adams served in the House for 17 years after his presidential term (and was a far more effective representative than he was a president).

In my dream world, we'd see Speaker of the House Obama passing legislation in partnership with Senate Majority Leader Biden (with members being pulled into line by House Majority Whip Bill Clinton) and signed into law by President Hillary Clinton. And I'd want that simply because the GOP butthurt would be absolutely delicious.


Taft was Chief Justice after his term (and after losing 59 pounds). I think that would be a much better position for Obama, seeing as how he's a former Constitutional Law professor and all.

The average American simply doesn't know how the government works, nor how legislation is made, nor the actual functions of any of the 3 branches. They remember fuzzy bits of info from high school, but it's been so muddled up with too much American Idol, Survivor and Dancing With The Stars that they can't remember who gets immunity from being voted off the senate floor if Len Goodman gives a "10" to a bill that was originally performed by Rascal Flatts.
