Given President Obama’s declining popularity and the increasing realization that he has never had any substance, how long until he’s basically the last Chinese emperor, paraded around in impressive but meaningless ceremonies, oblivious to his lack of relevance?

i don’t see him finishing his term. one way, or the other, or the other.

cjm. I hope you’re wrong.

The only way his not finishing his term would be beneficial to humanity, is if he’s thoroughly and publicly disgraced and discredited. Leaving in any other way would add to our woes and make of him a saint and a martyr.

Our local liberal rag this morning has two big headlines on the front page above the fold: U.S., Russia ‘close’ to new nuclear-arms treaty and Obama brokers climate accord. As long as the msm continues to carry his water with stories likes these, he’ll stay right where he is.

erp, carrying that water is killing the msm and isn’t helping obama with the voters. i think the way he goes is incidental to his going.

cjm, the thought of President Biden will prevent any movement toward resignation or impeachment … and the left isn’t likely to become so incensed against him as to resort to violence, and they’re the source of violence. He will serve out his term, but be the most unpopular president since Hoover.

Sadly, a President Biden is sounding more and more viable every day.

Clinton wasn’t all that popular at this point in his term either and there were all kinds of pronouncements that there was no way he’d ever serve a second term.

It’s a little premature to think he won’t finish his first term.

option#1: he retires,either voluntarily or by deign of the party leaders

option#2: he is impeached

option#3: he is martyred by the left

while biden would be an appalling president, he strikes me as far less dangerous and destructive than obama. i strongly suspect obama is a closeted homosexual, and there may be a tiger woods like scandal in his future. he doesn’t look too happy these days and clearly has his sights on being the next un head, which is actually the perfect job for such an useless person.

the left wouldn’t do him in out of anger — although that is not totally unlikely — but more as a kind of “inevitable destiny” impulse. they really do posses a strong streak of human sacrifice in their personalities.

Bret;

I think it very likely that Clinton would not have served a second term absent

  • A GOP dominated Congress
  • A willingness on Clinton’s part to bend with the prevailing winds

Obama, in contrast, doesn’t even feel the winds. Obama is also noticeably more unpopular now than Clinton was at the same point in his term, despite all the early Clinton missteps. Clinton also had Ross Perot to get him in both times — note that Clinton never got a majority of the popular vote. It’s not clear that absent Perot, Clinton would have served a second term.

My point being, Clinton just squeaked in and it wouldn’t have taken much to have made him a one term President. I don’t see Obama, because of a different political reality and his own personality defects, getting those breaks. On the other hand, I couldn’t imagine Blagojevich being re-elected yet there he was.

cjm, I also think he’s either gay or ‘a’ and I also think he has an eating disorder. He’s become gaunt verging on cadaverous. I read somewhere that an aide said that sometimes he forgets to eat!

What’s so telling to me is that he looks at his kids with indifference. No proud daddy smiles … and he revealed his daughter’s poor grade to make a stupid point while spending millions to conceal his own grades whatever they may be.

I don’t care if the left gets rid of him as long as they don’t try to blame it the right as they did when Kennedy was killed. They didn’t succeed, but only because the facts, such as they were, so completely belied the accusations. Even so the orgy that followed produced a landslide election for Johnson and the abomination that was the War of Poverty.

aog,

I don’t disagree with your assessment, though I also agree with your Blagojevich quip. I’ve never been wrong when I’ve guessed an incumbent would be re-elected.

What I’m totally in disagreement with is cjm who seems convinced that Obama won’t finish the current term. Death is the only way he won’t finish the term and that would be disastrous beyond measure.

he could have a mental collapse. or just resign because he is tired of the position and all the aggravation it brings him. if the dems lose control of one house in 2010 there won’t be much reason for him to hang around for 2012.

if conjecture#3 occurs it will probably be overseas, like harari was done in lebanon. the russians and oil nations take this co2 stuff seriously and would’nt suffer any consequences for any meddling they did in this regard.

He’s back on his game cjm. I heard him on the radio telling us how when they walked in, the country was in turmoil, the previous administration just spent and spent …

You could practically see that jaw jutting up and his eyes looking down on us insects.

Something I just read sounded right. More than anything else they want this off the front pages. Signing it into law will do that before the SOTU speech when Obama’s rhetoric can soar and sway and the swooning can recommence.

One of the ways a con works is that the people who are being conned can’t imagine, can’t comprehend, can’t get it through their heads that the con man has the actual gonads, the chutzpah, the sheer effrontary to even attempt to con them. Especially with all the cameras whirring (do cameras still whirr?).

This combined with the all-important belief that “no one can con me! No sir!!”

After a certain point, both the con man and those who refuse to believe they’re being conned just glide along, buoyed up by inertia-induced dust devil, not even realizing that they are in a death spiral.

They don’t have the instruments to tell them otherwise. Their moral altimeters (which they themselves have vandalized, helped greatly along by a complicit, transfixed media) are bust. Their moral compasses have been compromised. They have no idea where they are (but they certainly aren’t where they think they are).

Kind of like flying through a moral Bermuda Triangle. (Or if you don’t trust your imagination, just read or re-read “1984”)

But keep on smilin’ folks!! (And pay no attention to the man—-er, to the men and women—-behind the curtain…)
