Thread Name: BS: Should Obama Run in '12???
Subject: RE: BS: Should Obama Run in '12???
Abso-fuckin'-lutely, Kendall! A new war IS THE guaranteed way of getting re-elected in the USA. Just start a sudden shooting war with Iran about 6 months or less prior to the election in 2012. Kick it off by having an American ship in the Gulf get "sunk by Iran"...or through some other even much worse "terrorist" incident that kills Americans and gets blamed on Iran. These things are easily accomplished by various covert means. The country would rush to rally around the flag in a frenzy of patriotic fury, Obama would be re-elected handily, and the country would move from being merely waist or chest deep in the Big Muddy to being in up to its eyeballs or maybe beyond....

I'm not saying that WILL happen. I'm making no predictions. I'm simply saying that if it did happen, Obama would get re-elected handily as a consequence...and the country would go several steps further down the slippery slope to damnation and perdition.
