The far right in the US house wants two things and they can only have one. First, they want to remove from office, at this point by some legal means, the twice elected President of the United States. Next they want to defund or repeal ObamaCare before the American people can come to realize it is a program that works for them, saves them money and makes them healthier. As I have said they can only have one and either would be hailed as a victory, no even better a proof, that Conservatism is alive and well in America and is on the rise. Below is a speech that I think would change politics in America not for the next generation or even the next century; this speech made by President Barack Obama on 16 Oct 2013:
“My fellow Americans. The impasse between a small majority of GOP members in the House of Representatives and the Democrats in the Senate and the White House has come to a point where it is no longer viable for me to remain President. As of noon today I have tendered my resignation from the office of President of the United States and in accordance with the 25th amendment to the United States Constitution, Vice President Joe Biden becomes the 45th President of the United States. I take this action to preserve this great nation and to save it from extremists within our government who would destroy the nation out of their dislike for me. This office is more important than me or anyone else who would hold it and I fear if I remained, that not only would the power vested in this Executive Office be destroyed but America’s reputation as well. Despite the bitterness and the partisan gulf that has expanded between the two parties that govern this great land it has been my pleasure to serve the American people to the best of my ability over these nearly five years. It has been a time of unprecedented economic and domestic difficulty and I thank all those who have helped me and thereby helped you, the American citizens, during these hard times. In closing, I offer a challenge to all those who opposed to me while I was President; do all you can to support President Biden in his effort to bridge the gap between Progressives, Moderates and Conservatives. If you truly love America you will face this challenge not with arrogance and bluster but with an open mind and a welcoming hand. God bless you all and God bless the United States of America.”
Moments after this speech was completed, the Conservative pundits would be hailing the victory and all the church bells from Breitbart to WorldNet Daily would be ringing with news that Barack Obama was out of office. TEA Party members of the House and Senate would be in front of microphones having literally tons of press conferences some of them with tears in their eyes. The TEA Party constituents of these congresspeople would vent their spleens one last time and beat their chests black and blue with pride of their accomplishment. They will shout, “We have taken OUR country back!”
In the well appointed suites where GOP operatives and lobbyists reside, however, there would be panic.
The boys and girls on the right who work on K Street would realize that a political tsunami was coming. Biden would first have to select a VP and the clearest choice would be Nancy Pelosi since the California Democrat has no aspirations to be President of the United States and knows the ins and outs of the sausage making that takes place in Washington better than anyone else in the party. The smart kids who do politics no matter which side of the divide one resides would know now that not only had the political playing field changed; the very game of politics will have had its rules rewritten in an instant. In his first act as President, Biden will ask to speak not to the American people but to a joint session of Congress at 5 pm on 16 Oct 2013 in order to seek a means by which to get the federal government funded and raise the debt ceiling.
There would no longer be any cover Conservatives could take. Obama is gone and the problems of the nation remain. As now, there would be no means by which to defund or repeal ObamaCare. That battle will have been lost. But this scenario, as draconian as it seems, isn’t about the short term, the debt ceiling, or even ObamaCare. This scenario is about the long game, 2016 and beyond and by this sacrificial act on the part of the first person of color to serve the American people as their President, it would destroy the GOP into factions that it would never recover from and save the United States from the clear and present danger of being dragged back into a Conservative led political dark age.
Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
