Barack Obama, our next President

It really wasn’t with Donald Trump in mind that I named the latest occasional open thread,“Waiting for the other shoe to drop;” nevertheless, it seems appropriate now, as there has been so much antwitterpation of Donald Trump’s “October Surprise” revelation about Barack Obama.

It turns out that birther concern troll Trump isn’t revealing anything about Obama beyond an offer to donate $5 million to charity if Obama releases his college and passport records. Big Bird could probably use the money right now. Trump is reported to have a net worth somewhere around $3 billion, so his offer amounts to .1% of his riches. I think Obama should hold out for a lot more money plus Romney’s tax returns.

So what is the reaction on Twitter? Samples from #trump:

Somewhere right now, Barack Obama is laughing so hard milk is coming out of his nose.

Donald #Trump is a national treasure. Do you know how hard it is to be the village idiot in a place as big as New York?

Hey Democrats, let’s do it #Trump style and put out a reward for anyone willing to turn in Mitt Romney’s missing tax returns.

Only a billionaire megalomaniac would attempt 2 bribe a President by withholding donations to charities #trump

Donald Trump gets caught on tape pretending he has $5,000,000 dollars. His accountant demands answers…#trump

Someone should make a Kickstarter to offer #Trump 5 million to shut up about #Obama already.

How To Be A Conservative, By Fox

It’s really something to see how reflexively the Right loves to hunt heretics. Peggy Noonan may be wrong in her judgment of the Romney campaign, but see, Chris Wallace is not saying that she’s wrong. He’s saying that by criticizing the GOP nominee, she proves she’s Not One Of Us, and therefore ought not be listened to. Argumentum ad hominem may be a logical fallacy, but to the hive mind of movement conservativism, it’s an epistemological strategy.

GOP's Benghazi Smoking Gun Goes Up in Smoke
Even if the State Department email had been accurate, conservatives pounced on it eagerly without underlying corroboration, thereby providing a pretty good example of how complicated intelligence analysis can be and why it's a bad idea to simply jump on a piece of information that fits your preconceived biases.io

If Mitt Romney Loses, Blame All the Time the GOP Wasted This Cycle

How many total hours have American conservatives spent since 2009 trying to demonstrate that President Obama wasn't born in America? Can anyone argue that was the best use of Donald Trump's outsized media platform?

Birtherism wasn't the only time-suck of a theory. Months that could've been spent developing an effective foreign-policy critique were squandered on idiocy like the notion that Obama's actions abroad are best explained by an ideological Kenyan anti-colonialism that guides all his actions. Or the notion that he's allied himself with our Islamist enemy in a Grand Jihad against America. I am not referencing blog posts. Those theories were laid out at book length and given feature-length treatment in prominent right-leaning magazines. One even became a successful movie!

I haven't yet mentioned the most lunatic conspiracy theorist of them all. How many hours of Glenn Beck's chalkboard nonsense did Fox News broadcast during the Obama Administration?

Since 2009, the GOP wasted staggering amounts of time on off-putting conspiracy theories, squandering years that would've been better spent rigorously critiquing Obama; its base wasted months on obviously unqualified primary candidates, and failed to rally around Romney even when it was clear that he would be the nominee; if there was any benefit of doing so from their perspective, it was forcing Romney to the right in his positions and his rhetoric; but his time as a "severe" conservative was wasted too, because he made his final pitch to voters as a moderate.

Email and Benghazi and educate yourself.
DID YOU HEAR ANY OF THIS BSNBC? CNN?
Thank God for FOX or you would not hear on pro-Obama cable propaganda machine ...
If you are smart, you would KNOW how to verify, if what FOX said it's true or not? Do you KNOW how look up anything on internet or just to talk crap???
Obama call Romney today in Rolling stone;
BULLSHITER, very presidential, from a CHICAGO THUG ...and NO, didn't hear on FOX, you
OBAMA ZOMBIE !!!!!!!!!!
The biggest intelligence blunder in American history was virtually ignored by Republicans who now want us to crucify Obama for the events of Benghazi. Where was the Republican outrage over the faulty intel that sent thousands of American troops to their death and cost us billions of dollars searching for non-existant weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? Can you name right wing hypocrite that demanded an immediate investigation over that colossal Republican led disaster?

What has the entire Republican party done the last 4 years with the exception of a few of them? Answer: Nothing but obstruct and stonewall at every turn. No wonder this recovery is moving so slowly.

Homer has realized what a bunch of stubborn jackasses they are, I'm half hoping Romney wins so we'll get things moving along, because you know the Democrats will work with the president. My other hope is that like the Republicans in Congress did with Clinton in his second term will finally get working with Obama.

Homer can dream can't he?

Care to explain that mountain of legislation from the Republican-controlled House stacked up on Harry Reid's desk that the Democrats are obstructing from getting to the Senate floor for a vote?

If you want to know what the Democrats are doing, just listen to what they are accusing the Republicans of.
