Because while Palin's descent into obscurity has been met mostly with benign neglect by the left, Freepers are having some real trouble with the idea that Obama is going to actually leave office.
They just love to hate him so much, plus they've endowed him with supernatural evil abilities, secret Republican allies, and dark ambitions that don't align with someone who just leaves when it's time.
And then last week Obama, who I am convinced kinda likes to tweak the Freepers out there, said at a speech about rule of law in Ethiopia that “I actually think I’m a pretty good president. I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t.”
Along comes a long thread with concentrated craziness.
Lazamataz doesn't know how a hypothetical works:
“I actually think I’m a pretty good president. I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t,” Obama said in Ethiopia on Tuesday. ” There’s a lot that I’d like to do to keep America moving, but the law’s the law.”Portcall24 also sees this as a sign:
This is the first positive proof that he's going to run for a third term.
This is called a trail balloon. Run it up and see what happens. We should be afraid...very, very afraid.houeto KNOWS!
When I heard him speak those words I KNEW that he plans to stay.McGruff is one of the few Freepers to actually believe America hates Obama.
Something Wicked This Way Comes!
We ain't seen nuthin' yet.
And they say Hitler was delusional in his bunker.But the vast majority are paranoids like kosciusko51, for whom Obama is an entity that has already accomplished such great evil, he can do anything:
Usually when he says stuff like this, it means he’s going to do it. See executive orders regarding immigration.Kartographer also knows Obama's abilities are limitless:
"but the law’s the law."redfreedom has endowed Obama's opposition with such superlative weakness that he can't see how a third term would be any different:
Since when did the law matter to him? It isn't nothing that an executive order or two wouldn't take care of.
And if he did run for a third term, the RINO’s would just be RINO’s and let him. Make absolutely zero effort to enforce law. They would continue to do everything that is counterproductive to their own cause and lose the election. Afterwards they’d respect obama’s third term as though nothing wrong had happened.Ditto Fiji Hill, but with the Roberts Court:
And above all, those self righteous arrogant POS RINO’s would just think: “SCREW AMERICA!!!”
If he wants to run for a third term, he could probably do so. He could get the Roberts court to rule that the 22nd Amendment doesn’t apply to him, perhaps rationalizing that since it was passed in an era of Jim Crow, it doesn’t apply to blacks.ilovesarah2012 just seethes, undirected.
“Hate” does not even come close to my feelings for this maggot.MeshugeMikey also fails to respond to the actual quote:
He's ILL, very, very ILL!yoe blames Obama's hypothetical on our schools not teaching 'Mericah enough:
Stoned too, most likely....
Obama: ‘I’m a Pretty Good President’ And If I Ran For a Third Term, I Could Winsport sees in every sentence a secret message to Obama's evil disciples:
Absolute proof our teachers are killing off any knowledge of our U.S. Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and pride in our country, America. Obama like his Muslim fathers before him, USE America, he has put nothing back except Socialism, using the American largess in ways that reduces this nation, not adding a whit to her exceptionalism.
Abra Kadabra...POOF Ø
“There’s a lot I’d like to do”. (I would keep entitlements moving)Maris Crane knows with speculative massive voter fraud, everything's possible:
“But I can’t”. (Unless my people rise up)
“But the laws the law”. (Wink, wink)
A coded message from him to his disciples and worshippers is in each of your quotes.
I think he can turn out people that don’t even exist. It just confirms my idea that the fraud that was perpetrated in the last election can be used again and that is scary.Obama_Is_Sabotaging_America blames single ladies:
I still wonder if some electronic manipulation was in play.
I shake my head when thinking about 2012.
For as long as single females (and illegal aliens) are allowed to vote, Odungo WINS.Noted Confederate apologist nathanbedford has an odd accusation to level at Obama:
Barack Obama is not a man to shrink from civil war but I believe that his contemplation of it would be entirely focused on timing rather than on the morality of it.chajin has a whole scenario planned out:
I am not concerned that he will try to run for a third term. My guess is that he sees the presidency as a stepping stone to either SCOTUS, where he could be the Real Black On The Court, or Secretary-General of the UN, where he could be the Savior of the World.If Obama may cede power, eastforker is willing to allow an evil dynasty, at least:
Beware of the Mooch in 2016, don’t say it couldn’t happen. All it would take is Hillary cratering, a hint from O to his followers that she would enable him to continue his policies and it damn sure could happen.He's not alone. Half a dozen Freepers like luvbach1 settle for Michelle Obama as the new flavor of hate.
Moochelle would be a shoo-in if she ran for prexy. The USA has jumped the shark!
