Should Obama Assume Helm of Sinking USS Uncle Sam?
Edited on Fri Dec-05-08 06:52 PM by wordpix
Question asked by Tweety tonight on Hardball. I couldn't believe it. :wow:

Very interesting discussion. Grab the hook, get BushCo out and let Barack take control. We can't wait until Jan. 20, the ship of state is sinking, we're leaderless, should he begin to lead the country, etc. "Bush has checked out...is acting like he's being interviewed by Walter Cronkite four years after the presidency is over." (Chris Matthews---paraphrased) :rofl:

1. It's the right thing to do but it is illegal. If he quits cheney is prez. If cheney quits
(yeah right) Pelosi is prez. Obama's not even a senator right now.

2. Even if Bush resigned Cheney would take over - Obama starts on Jan 20 not before

4. Cheney would need to appoint Obama as his VP and then resign.
But I wouldn't trust Cheney to drain my septic tank if I had one.

I'm wondering if Dem leadership is getting nervous as 530,000 more jobs lost this month :shrug:
