You have a disagreement with  Obama is our most popular President since Reagan;
as well you should. Reagan left office with a 63% approval rating. Bill Clinton left office with a 66% approval rating.

And you also disagree with the statement that the military isn't with the extreme right wing haters, therefore aren't likely to participate in a coup. Okay.
 
All right, everyone seems to agree that Keyes is a nutjob.  OTOH, IMO these are sort of nutjob times.  You know what it all kind of reminds me of?  Descriptions of France right before World War II. 

As for a coup attempt, I still think there's some outside chance of an abortive attempt, even if it's nothing more than the effort mounted by the Japanese novelist Yukio Mishima , who exhorted an audience of cadets to join in a coup and they responded by chanting "asshole! asshole! asshole!". 

Obama does have some Reaganesque qualities - after all, Reagan was the Great Communicator, and his detractors regarded him as an empty suit.  It also amuses me when I read all the complaints about the press fawning over Obama -  you'd think Obama was made of Teflon or something.

This is Alan Keyes dumping tea in the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh. Allan and I happened upon a Tea Party on Saturday. We didn't stick around for the whole thing, because some of the rhetoric was a little scary (and blood-pressure raising), so we didn't hear Keyes speak. After lunch, though, we watched the end of the rally. You can see my photoset of the Tea Party here.

I've been thinking about this thing ever since Saturday; I'd like to write about it on my blog. I'm not sure I'm up for getting into a discussion of it here. But I did want to show yinz my photo of Mr. Keyes.
 

 
So that's not tea. What did they use? Corn flakes? Sawdust? What cheap bastiges.

That's the problem with American politics ... you allow your loons, thieves, crooks and liars to keep their elected post more often than not.  Up here, we usually blast them out of their seat with shame and public condemnation.

There's a good reason the right looks upon many O-voters as self-delusional.  That post would be such an example.

edit: BTW, in case its not especially obvious to y'all on whatever side of the political fence you reside on:  Keyes is an effing LOON.  That should have been ovious and clear to y'all during the primaries.
 
{#Lol} That diagnosis could be applied to a far larger percentage of the human race than those who voted for O.

  • scenario can only work with a President who lacks public support. Obama is our most popular President since Reagan;
  • a free press and a loyal public (AND military!) render any coup attempt unlikely and unfeasible.
  • Right now, it couldn't happen successfully.
  • The extreme right wing can hate all it wants; most Americans, and most military personnel, aren't with them.
I guess I did miss the  sycophantic obsequiousness here. Especially since Obama's not in the room, these words just look like a rational observation. Your being upset by them just looks like you do think a coup is likely and/or feasible.

Free clue Dio: this is a public forum, not a private chat or two way PM.  You might want to find another means of conversing if you're only interested in 'talking' to one.
 
Let me sum up:
  1. Basement mused about Keyes' words being a rationalization for a coup attempt.
  2. Dio says it's not possible in the current climate
  3. You express sadness upon reading Dio's statement.
  4. Dio says "huh?"
  5. You tell Dio to f*uck off.
What am I missing?

If you're unable to resist posting moronic taunts when you see me chime in on a thread you're participating in, then perhaps next time you'd be much the wiser just walking away from the keyboard for a spell.
 
Turn the mirror on your own uninvited intrusion here and subsequent intemperate language. I have nothing to apologize for.

Look, I wasn't even talking to you to begin with. I was actually disagreeing with someone else's intimation that there was a real or possible right wing conspiracy to unseat the President through a coup. Ain't gonna happen. But you just butt in then with a irrelevant ad hominem, and then get pissy when I respond. Bullshit playground stuff. You can't pull a Bill O'Reilly here, Beaks, you don't control the mic.
