This is Seven Days In May, not "creative speculation"... [View all]

(Please) don't for one second tell me that all of this was a random series of events which happened to coincide with the election. The onion (and not the publication) has not begun to unpeel, and we've come across all kinds of famously unsavory characters whom we know from all the usual Obama-hating venues. I am old enough to remember that when Watergate occurred, and I was part of a real Left movement, not the faux-Left which exists today, many people pooh-poohed the idea that it was more than a burglary by a bunch of miscreants who may or may not have had ties to the White House at one time. And these were my compatriots. The Middle and Right of the country wanted to see it off the pages of the papers and Newsweek as fast as possible. And for good reason. The only thing which kept it alive was the insiders' dreams of getting rid of Nixon for their own nefarious reasons and purposes.

So it goes with this: something big was in the works, and it was thwarted. This had everything to do with the election of President Obama and nothing to do with sex or wife-swapping. This had to do with an attempted coup as executed by the conglomerate consisting of the billionaires, the Rove machine, and some treasonous "folks", as the previous president used to call them in the military.

I believe that both the President and Romney knew about this from obviously different sources, and the famous Romney press conference was staged and part of the plan. For several reasons, some of which we know, some of which we may guess, and some which will probably never be known, the coup fell apart. I understand why some will be skeptical of this hypothesis, but as far as I am concerned, one is going to have to prove ot me that this, or some version of this did not occur.
