Things to come

The most important event since the 2008 Presidential Election happens next Tuesday, so far as Obama conspiracy theories are concerned.

For the country as a whole, the outcome of the election is seen as confidence in President Obama’s leadership, or as the beginning of the end of civilization as we know it. I don’t want to go there, but readers who do might enjoy these two thoughtful articles at The Atlantic. (Don’t be put off by the titles.)

I see a Romney victory as the effective end of the birther movement. WorldNetDaily finds other topics to exploit, Orly Taitz finds no one interested in her cases any more, and I go looking for work (unpaid volunteer, of course).

An Obama victory launches an entirely new phase in the birther movement (BM) in my view. Given that birthers are denialists at heart, they will certainly deny the election results with new conspiracy theories that the election was fraudulent and that Obama really didn’t win. WorldNetDaily is already sowing these seeds now. We may see strident calls from birthers for impeachment of Obama, so far a long shot due to Obama’s squeaky clean administration.

The only thing that I am sure of is that the birthers will surprise me. They always have.

    rMoney himself is already ginning up creative spin. The auto-bailout was a failure because the (he says) the companies are plotting to out-source all labor to China now. LOL. That doesn’t even begin to make any sense …. unless spun into a new Obama Conspiracy Theory.

    Manchurian Obama relaying the evil plot cooked up by his Chinese overlords: “OK, GM, Chrysler, I’ll pay off your debts, absolving your execs of responsibility for failure, so long as you agree to keep it in America, creating a beautiful set piece for my re-election. After 2012, you guys can fly the coop, pump and dump your American operations.”

    Except that isn’t what happened at all …. both companies were decapitated and re-organized. Oh, right, that was all for the optics.

    And Ford wasn’t in on it because …. they are the only Real American-™ car company?

    Sure, why not?
    They blamed their loss with McCain on Acorn.

    Those birthers just don’t get it.
    What’s squeaky-cleaner than a LFBC PDF?

    Squeaks volumes to those with good hearing.

    It is hard for birthers to hear when they cram their fingers in their ears and scream… any… day… now…

    What’s less relevant than a LFBC PDF? It’s a web page.

    Orly is firmly convinced that if Romney wins, that the GOP will finally take up the cause of Obamaforgerygate and prosecute Obama…. with her at the helm, naturally.

    LOL! O rly? Just like Obama drove an investigation into the crimes of the Bush years (real or imagined), and just as Bush continued to prosecute the various accusations levelled at Clinton throughout his tenure?

    The elephants will be more than happy to let it slide down the memory hole. It’s the American way. And has been an embarrassment even for them … and that’s saying something.

    A Clinton so presciently snarked at the 2000 WHC dinner …. ” I feel sorry for Congress. I really do. They only have a few more months to investigate me …. soooo many unanswered questions.” ;)

    It’s all part of the game … the smears (imagined accusations) and accusations (smears based in substance) made on the Old Man magically dissolve at the time of the inauguration of the New Man …. only to live on in the minds of conspiracists!
