Now let's not be too hasty - I think we should review qualifications first.  It is time for the birth certificate.

Isn't there something left in the Constitution prohibiting cruel and unusual punishment, or did they already remove that one?  Because that's what this announcement constitutes.

Can we just not do this?  I mean, at least here, on ZH.  Can we just pretend there is no 2012 election cycle and talk about fun stuff instead?  I really don't want to go through this.  We just "elected" this guy what seems like weeks ago, or at least judging by the lack of accomplishments it sure feels that way.  So can we just pretend this isn't happening and talk about more joyful topics like, I don't know, radiation emanating from Japan, or shocking hikes in the price of oil and food?

I am Chumbawamba.

"can we just pretend there is no 2012 election cycle and talk about fun stuff instead?"

I hear what you are saying, it is a real Debby Downer, but I thought part of the whole point of Zero Hedge was to discuss stuff that others don't because it is not fun. I look at it (discussing the current presidents ACTIONS) as necessary evil, as long as we can do so w/o being divided in divisive dialogue. Even then it is necessary...along with understanding where the true power resides...behind the throne.


Enjoying London so far...

I'm ready to bet $10k he will get reelected. 

The global economic recovery is on the march, and no bigot, nerdy libertarian will be able to stop it.

Of course I will. It is my civic and patriotic duty to support the only one able to manage the USA efficiently. I'm sure the Founding Fathers would agree with me. 

Do you imagine redneck bigots like Palin at the command? Lmao. 

Socialism is the only acceptable future for America. Only uncivilized, immoral societies do not have a welfare State.

Well Hamy, to start with, why the pre-emptive derision?  I thought this thread was about the won!s announcement of the formal resumption of his permanent campaign, not Sarah Palin.  And I hadn't seen any upthread mention of her either; so why mention her?


And as far as socialism being the only acceptable future? If you'd prefer to live in a failing Euro-socialist country why don't you just move to Europe?

Just curious.

Hey Hamy, how is the DOJ going to handle the new laws, proposed in ten states, that any Pres candidate present the "real" birth certificate, before being allowed on the ballot, in that state?

I hear he plans to collect 1 billion dollars to run. Shows how badly the dollar is performing, it used to only take 20 million to run for President. Talk about inflation.

I wonder if this time when he files the clerk will have the balls to ask for a legitimate birth certificate.  No matter, I am a life-long democrat who will not be voting for him (again).

I suggest you sit at home and jack off on voting day. The late great George Carlin was on the money when he described what a total waste of time election day is.   You're voting for the same idiots each and every time no matter what color flag they wave.

Demoncracy is fascism in thin disguise. To prove that wrong, try to get your elected re[resentative to listen to you or more importantly change something that his electorate desires to change.

It is such an Animal Farmish sham, gone on so long, impossible to make people see otherwise.

On the other hand, if I was the leader of the 'free" world....mmmmmhhhh.... the possibilities, the possibilities....

I have a little hope and change I can sell you....cheap.

It will be interesting to see how the MSM handles Ron Paul? Do they pimp him (like they did Obama) into the WH so he is the fall guy, or do they ignore/ridicule him like last time? My guess is the latter, assuming we are even "doing" elections in 2012.
