News Flash: Obama Seeks Political Asylum in Indonesia

In a stunning move, President Barack Obama has applied for political asylum in Indonesia.

Obama and his Teleprompter spoke at a news conference at the airport in Jakarta, in front of Air Force One. "The Republicans have staged an illegal coup in the United States, overthrowing the House of Representatives and nearly taking control of the Senate. I am under attack, and I fear for my safety should I return to the United States."

Obama says he wants the United Nations to investigate the recent elections, saying that there must have been serious fraud behind the Republican victories. "It was a Republican tsunami. And as the people of Indonesia know all too well, tsunamis are never a good thing. To think that the Republicans would use one for their cynical political gains is simply unacceptable." He hoped that the UN would find enough evidence of Republican fraud to overturn the election, and cited the overwhelming Democratic victories in 2006 and 2008 as proof -- the American people simply couldn't swing away from him that fast.

Obama said that his historic ties to Indonesia led him to seek asylum here. He spent several years of his childhood in the nation with his mother and stepfather.

Obama then ended the news conference to start a comprehensive survey of Indonesia's golf courses. He stated that he would not rest until he had shot par on each and every one of them.

Nah. Biden's motorcade would never be able to make it to the White House without getting in an accident.

Be careful!

If Jay's scenario of abdi .., er, resigning were to happen and Biden somehow not be there, that would make Pelosi the President!

Still, that would seem to make the next Speaker take over who would be a Republican, except Pelosi would nominate a new Vice Prez who would be quickly ratified by the Dem Senate. I guess that person would then be Pres in January.

I feel like I'm having a Haig moment! I have no clue on how such a weird hypothetical succession would go. I just hope I never have reason to find out.

FWIW, I believe both houses of Congress have to confirm a new veep. I'm too lazy to check the amendment that sets it forth though so I could be mistaken.

Not that it would make a difference if the Democrats' lame duck House is in session at the time.

Your humor raises a pet fear I currently am not enjoying. Between now and January 20, 2011 we NEED for Obama and Biden to stay healthy and serving in their offices or... the country suffers the Presidency of Nancy Pelosi.

I don't think Pelosi can be President. Isn't there a rule saying that you have to be manufactured in the US? I bet most of her parts are made overseas...

Steve Crickmore:

Another Democrat golfing joke..did Pelosi play a lot of golf, I doubt it? I think it is time for Wizbang, to bury the golfing jokes, now that John Boehner is the new speaker, unless you want to be accused of hypocrisy. Ever wondered why the Ohio Congressman has such a good tan all year round, even better than Obama's? Read 'Let them Play Golf'.

In 2005 the magazine, Golf Digest, reported that Boehner himself boasted of playing about 100 rounds of golf a year (Must be a tough life, being a public servant), -- mostly with lobbyists. Boehner bragged that he pays attention to his lobbyist-golf buddies: "If someone I've gotten to know on the golf course comes into my office with a good argument, I tend to want to listen."

Sky Captain:

Crickmore,

Nice try, but you're a bit late with your talking points.

IIRC, before the election Obama and his lapdog media attacked John Boehner for both his golfing and his smoking, apparently ignorant of the obvious hypocrisy.

Boehner is allowed to golf.
Even a Kenyan community agitator is allowed to golf.
However, D'OHbama's timing was incredibly tone-deaf.

What's the next talking point, Li'l Stevie?
You wanna trot out the one about John Boehener's skin color?

Seeing as the Indians like Barry's speaking style so much, maybe we can pay them to keep him. Probably be cheaper for us in the long-run.
