Every time I think the GOP, and by that I mean the party and the people who identify as republicans, can’t get any stupider, well, they suddenly reveal an entire sub-basement of asshattery.
Case in point: President Obama made a surprise appearance at the annual congressional baseball game last week, and he started out by sitting in the Democrats’ dugout. But then he crossed over and was going to sit with the Republicans for a while when it happened.
Fans in the Democrats’ section began chanting “Four more years!” and Teabagistan and Conservative-ville and GOPLand went apesh*t.
Especially one John S. Roberts who writes for Young Conservatives and felt the need to remind Democrats that the 22nd Amendment prohibits President Obama — and any president — from seeking a third term.
Um, I wasn’t at the game but I’m guessing, and call me crazy, because you GOPeople seem to have a close connection to crazy, but wasn’t that chanting a joke? Perhaps they don’t know because commenters on Roberts’ article were enraged, and deranged, at the mere thought of people shouting “Four more years” at Obama:
Thanks for the reminder, Captain Obvious! But someone named “Mitch” wasn’t having it, and took off his foil hat long enough to open his Conspiracy File and tell us this:
And “Mitch’s” fellow loons loudly responded with their posts of “Me, too! Me, too! Me, too!” though wingnut, gun-nut replied with a threat against the President—and I’m hoping that means he, or she, is now on a watch list:
And this guy believes, really believes, that President Obama will break the string of consecutive peaceful transfers of power in the United States that goes all the way back to George Washington because, well, Obama:
And he had his followers, too:
Seriously, people? After all the blatant racism, the lack of any kind of aid from the Republicans in Congress, the personal attacks on his family, the Do-Nothing Congress he’s worked with, or tried to work with the last six years, does anyone with half a brain rally think Obama will try to circumvent the Constitution and stay in office even if he wanted to?
Siddown, GOPeople your crazy is showing. And save all your conspiracy theories for when Hillary — or any Democrat — takes office in 2017.
Four more years!!!
