ourbigdumbmouth: I can see Obama becoming an ambassador


How about a Supreme Court justice?

Hey, it worked for Taft.

God Is My Co-Pirate: And if he said he was moving to Hawaii, they'd be accusing him of building an underwater volcano lair.


I would totally go work for Obama if he builds a tropical island volcano lair.

yeah, him staying in DC has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that he has two young children in school and he doesn't want to disrupt their lived by making them leave school mid-year just because dad no longer has his job.  why would any parent not put themselves ahead of their children!  that's insane!

How exactly does WND plan on spinning Hillary Clinton as the most powerful dictator-president ever while simultaneously Barack Obama is the shadow president?

Dr Dreidel: BKITU: bluorangefyre: JerseyTim: ourbigdumbmouth: I can see Obama becoming an ambassador

Hey, it worked for Taft.

Didn't John Quincy Adams go back to the Senate?

Close. He served in the House of Representatives for a long time after his term as President. Wiki says ~17 years.

Obama (and Clinton, and W, etc) COULD theoretically serve in Congress, just not in any position that puts them in the Order of Presidential Succession (Speaker of the House, PresProTemp of the Senate and I think one or two others).

IIRC, Taft was the last one who even went back to public service.


The way I understand it, they can still serve in those positions, but they'd just be passed over for eligibility should the freak scenario occur that would necessitate elevating the position to the Presidency.

Otherwise, every Cabinet member would also need to be eligible for the Presidency, and that's obviously false.

Weaver95: Limbaugh must be getting REAL desperate if he's recycling old left wing conspiracy theories and giving them a GOP retread.


You may not recall the heady days of the late 1990's, when Clinton ruled over America with an iron fist made of unmarked black helicopters.  The right wing had his ascension to dictator-for-life all mapped out, he would use UN peacekeeper troops to quell the rebellion and run the camps - they would use all the markers on the backs of highway signs to know where to oppress, or something.

Man, not enough ex-presidents go into mad science. That would be pretty awesome.

doublesecretprobation: Obama is going to hang around D.C. for the gay parties, a C.N.N. show and like Sharpton and Farakhan just generally be there to keep the racial animosity pot simmering. Knock Out games, etc. have to keep going so Obama can lead the race war. He's an extreme narcissist who is run by a Globalist Mafia. He isn't going to be dissuaded by a little thing like the end of his term. He has visions of Mandela (his hero) and "Necklacing", like he did, lighting diesel fuel in tires put over peoples' waists. Obama and his "supporters" have "great things" in mind for him and he isn't done yet. We're just getting warmed up with this guy who calls himself "Obama".

Which is like all the nightmares the right said would happen in 2000 & Clinton not giving up the presidency.


Which is like all the nightmares about Reagan not giving up the presidency.

I can't really link to any examples, because it was a fringe view (like the others), and at that time we didn't have the intarwebs, just bulletin boards and fight-o-net.  But I do recall seeing them.

No, those nightmares included Dick Cheney in sexy sleepwear. This is nothing like that.
