I was reading a birther site and somebody said that November 19 changed everything. Like a dummy, I asked what happened on November 19. November 19 was when about 100 conservatives hosted by Larry Klayman met in the park and demanded that Barack Obama resign, or else…. The deadline was today!
I dropped by the White House web site just now and the top item was Barack Obama wishing everybody a “Happy Thanksgiving.” I think it’s a safe bet that Obama won’t be resigning between now and midnight.
The actual “or else” statement from Klayman had something concrete in place of that ellipsis. Here’s what he said, courtesy of US News and World Report:
Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman, who emceed the event, told attendees if President Barack Obama does not resign by Nov. 29, conservative activists will meet in Philadelphia to elect a shadow government.
If he does hold a convention in Philadelphia, I hope it’s in May.
So they plan to replace what they think is a usurper with an actual usurper. Good thinking, Larry.
What should we do about lingering unemployment? The Shadow Government knows.
How can we improve relations with Pakistan? The Shadow Government knows.
How can we deal with the national debt? The Shadow Government knows.
It may be that the Shadow Government™ will deal with these and a host of other issues by relying on a strategy based on Richard Nixon’s secret plan to end the war (a phrase Nixon didn’t actually use). All I can say is “talk is cheap.”
