#2 And by Sunday, the president was back on the golf course, in a thick fog, on a cold and drizzly day.>

As we have instructed here on the Burg. For best taxpayer results, a daily regimen. Nine before noon, a two hour lunch & nap, then another 9 following. Lots of smoke breaks in between.

#3 Not interfering with ValJar while she busy ruining running the World, visitor?

#4 ...and the difference between that an Biden being in the seat is? Joe's smart enough to know not to touch a third rail. Reid has about as much power that the rules of the Senate allow and yet not too much to tempt a coup by some other Senator (its an old Roman tradition).

The beginning of the end for Barack Obama, yes...
Is he a great man of the people...no.

#8 These are democrats. They are disgustingly ignorant and it will not matter what 0 does or not, they will still think of him the world.

#9 His failure to go to Gettysburg indicates that he is afraid of the reception he will receive. Look for more and more of his "public" appearances to be before controlled audiences. He may become known as the education president because the only group he could speak to was union teachers.

#11 His reading of the Gettysburg Address was horrible. It reminded me of some of the readers at church haven't bothered to read the material beforehand, seemingly emphasizing words at random. I thought he was supposed to be a great orator. Not so much.

#12 I woke up in the middle of the night with a Captain Obvious moment. Perhaps on the anniversary of the Kennedy Assassination, my conspiracy theorist credentials are working in high gear.

Various agencies of the federal government, not normally connected with law enforcement, guns, bullets and bombs have been purchasing weapons, ammunition, and equipment by the truck load.

Obama has been purging the ranks of our General Officer corps of anyone not a true believer

While I believe in Heinlein's Law ("Never attribute to malice that which could be more easily explained by stupidity"), no one in the inner circle of true believers surrounding Obama is THAT stupid and our foreign policy is just BEGGING for some catastrophic event to occur.

NSA is tracking everyone of us in email, websites, bank transactions, cell phones, heck I think they even have my fleet of stealth carrier pigeons wired.

Taken in isolation, all of this odd and near keystone cop behavior by our government is symptomatic of an administration in self destruct sequence and counting.

Taken together, and my intelligence analyst/conspiracy theorist tendencies, I can see a scenario being played out for an enormous coup d'├ętat. An enormous catastrophe or vast civil disobedience uprising gives the ONE the excuse to declare martial law, he issues a series of executive orders to suspend most civil rights, hits the kill switch on the internet, orders his sycophant generals out into the streets with their troops and he thinks he could have 1917 all over again with a newer and greater communist paradise.

Of course all of the useful idiots in the media and academia would be herded into confinement or shot as traitors....

Am I nuts or have I just been reading this stuff too much and I should law off Del Taco at midnight?

#14 I have to admit having thoughts along the same line as Bill's; but mine switch gears when you get to the part about where Obama "...orders his sycophant generals out into the streets with their troops ..." At that point, my thoughts go more to ; the general may order but the trops will not act; and in fact may turn their weapons into another direction.

But I do not rule out Barry doing something world class stupid to (tyr to) save his own sorry ass.

#15 My fear is "world class stupid" as well. He's cornered, spiteful, and angry. Bad combinations I'd say.

#16 I donno - I just finished re-reading Red Storm Rising last night and the coup d'├ętat the Ruskies pulled off at the end seemed pretty easy. "Less than 200 people really knew what was going on." But I 'spose our troops would not so blindly follow world-class-stoopid orders.

#17 Don't sweat it Bill, he's been revealed as just another 2nd rate populist president lame duck. Democrats are heading for the high grass.

(I love that term).

#18 Bill, USN Ret. and Bobby, do not assume that US troops will not fire on US Citizens. It has happened before (and no, I don't mean the Kent State shootings).

On the other hand, there are reports that Obama has been asking the military brass if they are willing to shoot US citizens if ordered.

#20 Iff one believes that the Bammer is an anti-US Marxist-Anarchist-Globalists whom sees only opportunity in a deadlocked US Congress to continually wreak Systemic, anti-Establishment + anti-Sovereign-Constitutional-Electoral National, Geopol havoc wid his POTUS-led EXECUTIVE PRIVELEGE/ACTION AUTHORITY, THEN ONE SHOULD BELIEVE THAT OBAMA HAS A VERY LONG WAY TO GO YET BEFORE HE'S ACTUALLY FINISHED.

Lest we fergit, OWG "GLOBALISM" = Smaller or lessor Nation-States are risen up to share International or Global burdens or obligations, etc. IN [imperfect = rough?] PARITY WID GREAT POWERS, NOT FROM THEIR HISTORICAL OR TRADITIONAL POSITION(S) OF INFERIORITY = WEAKNESS.

The scope of the above means or infers that the US must voluntarily or forcibly lose something(s) that it normally wouldn't iff it had a choice.
AS A GOOD POLITICIAN, THE JOB OF THE BAMMER + OTHER ALIGNED, ETAL. IS SEE THAT THE US "LOSES" OR "GIVES UP" ITS "SOLE" SUPERPOWER POWER-N-INFLUENCE/AUTHORITY WID THE FULL SUPPORT + BACKING OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION.

* E.g. CHINA-VS-JAPAN/PHIL/INDIA, ETC. = the Bad Econ, Sequester, Shutdown + post-Shutdown,
....@etc. US can't intervene in moral or treaty obligation to its overseas Allies because it can no longer econ or $$$ afford to do so. In addition, its not in the US interest to risk fighting either a major Conventional War andor a major Nuclear War in East Asia-Pacific agz China.

OBAMA US of AMERIKA = 1945 PRE-SURRENDER EMPEROR HIROHITO = AMERIKA [Post-Hiroshima, Nagasaki Japan] "MUST ACCEPT THE UNACCEPTABLE, BEAR THE UNBEARABLE, TOLERATE THE INTOLERABLE" ... ... IN THE NAME OF PEACE + COUNTRY'S FUTURE.

POTUS BAMMER = ONE HELLUVA LOUSY PRO-US NATIONALIST, SOVEREIGNTYIST, + AMERICAN, BUT ONE HELLUVA OUTSTANDING ANTI-AMERICAN, ANTI-SOVEREIGNTY, GLOBALIST AMERIKAN!

D *** NG IT, ... AND DON'T YOUSE EVER E-V-A-R! FORGET WHAT WE NEVER TOLD YOU!

Dats our story + we're sticking to it.
