My suggestion to you is to highlight and copy this post. Then print it out and stash it someplace safe.

"Why?" I hear you asking.

Because the time is not too far away when it will be deleted from the Internet, and its author (lil' ole me) will be in chains for some trumped up federal charge, and you will want to be able to refer to it.

"Why?" I hear you asking.

Because what I am about to predict will be seen by some as kook fringe, by others as the ravings of a tired old man and by the government as subversive.

I have listened to his words, watched his body language and compared his persona with films of despots around the world as they rose to power and have come to a conclusion.

Here it is:

Before his second term is up (and I do believe he will be re-elected), President BO will have convinced the members of the House of Congress, the members of the Senate, the Supreme Court (which will rule it Constitutional - 'cause they don't have to find something actually IN the Constitution to make it so, and President BO disdains the very Constitution he "took an oath" [snicker-snicker] to defend) and a majority of the American people that it is in the best interest of the country for him to serve another term in office.

Then, during his third term, he will have accumulated enough power to proclaim himself "president for life" in the manner of Julius Ceasar, Napoleon Bonaparte, Rafael Cerrera, Francois Duvalier, Saparmurat Niyazou, Jose Gaspar Rodrigues de Fancia, Josip Broz Tito, Kim Il-sung, Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.

Just think of it!

Mr. Charisma in the White House for fifty years.

It is a thought that produces elation in the minds of way too many.

It should strike fear into the hearts of everybody.

Mark my words...he is following the path laid by every despotic dictator in the history of the universe, and has no less ambition than to do so.

Place me in the lunatic corner, if you wish.

That's OK.

If you live long enough, you will see.

Some day you will wake up and say, "You know, that obscure blogger...what was his name?...Jo-Jo the, that's not it...Jo-Somethingorother tried to warn us, but we ingored him and just sat back and let it happen."

Then, in the cover of darkness by candlelight, go pull out the copy of this post and re-read it.

You will shudder with remorse.

As Marc Antony said in Shakespeare's Julius Cesar, "The noble Brutus hath told you Caesar was ambitious: If it were so, it was a grievous fault; And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it."

President BO is nothing, if not ambitious.

Medoubts that he will have to answer for it in this life.

(There is, however, another to come.)

A lot is riding on 2010 and right now it is beginning to look like he may self-destruct. I hope so because otherwise your scenario is very possible.

cary said...

Consider this post hard-copy archived.

No offense, Jo, but I sure hope you are a lousy prophet.

Lord, allow us to look back and laugh with Jo-Jo as we see that it did not happen as he predicted.

Joe said...

shoprat: I hope we can squelch this thing in 2010...but I am not optimistic.

cary: I pray the same with you.

Anonymous said...

Disillusionment is happening, and I just hope that it continues to do so. I don't think he has what it takes, so I don't honestly see your prophesy happening.....but stranger things have happened.

sue said...

Joe - you are letting your conservative imagination run away from you.

If Barack Obama became a serial rapist/murderer who committed all of his crimes on video, The MSM might just have celebrity news that is much more important to report. If his crimes somehow became common public knowledge, Olbermann, Andrea Mitchell, Peggy Noonan, Harry Smith, Katy Couric and the rest of the MSM would endlessly, and with great condescension, explain to us rubes the banal and insignificant nature of the great Barack's harmless hobby as compared to the never ending and profound evil of Sarah Palin.
The behavior of America's East Coast establishment offers nothing to make your scenario look like it is unlikely to come to pass.vabitur

what a bunch of nutbags. Continue to chatter amongst yourselves.

Joe said...

shoprat: I would not count on self-destruction.

cary: I hope I am a lousy prophet, too.

Jennifer: I hope you are right. But I don't think so. I think, despite his faux pas (what-the-heck is the plural of "faux pas?"), he will be powerful enought.

Sue: You could be right...but I don't think so. Be sure to print out this post so you can refer to it later.

snaggletoothie:'s the evil Sarah Palin who will do us in (if we believe the leftists who continue to chatter amongst themeselves.)

anonymous: How can we chatter amongst ourselves when you keep chiming in. BTW: Way to present a well thought out, articulate counter argument (typical of the intelligence level of the left.)

Bryan said...

Joe, you are crazy!

Well, uh, I hope so, in a good kind of way. :0)

Joe said...

Bryan: Occasionally people say to me, "Joe, you're crazy." To which I respond, "And don't you forget it."

Susannah said...

Heaven help us...

Greywolfe said...

Amen, brother. Couldn't agree more. Shoprat, the problem is, if he gets what he wants BEFORE 2010, then I'm pretty sure 2010 will be pointless. The deathblows will have fallen.

Jennifer, I hope it speeds up, but in the end, what recourse is there when your congressional leadership denounces the lawful application of laws within the U.S. Anything he wants to do is going to be approved.

Anonymous, you are an idiotic coward. Post using your name so we can filet you on your site.

Sorry for the rapid fire joe, I'm out of ammo for the moment.
