The Worldnetdaily has become the one-stop shop for every Obama conspiracy theory and lately they’re pushing the idea that he’s going to refuse to leave office. So how do you keep the non-existent drama that you created going? By asking your own columnists to comment on it:
President Obama leaves office on Jan. 20, 2017 – or does he? The Internet is abuzz with talk about the myriad of ways Obama might seek to extend his White House role – sparked in part by radio conjecture from conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh – and now at least one likely presidential candidate, Ben Carson, has weighed in to say: Don’t worry, Obama will leave.
First, the question from WND to Carson: “Who would stop Obama from remaining in office past his second term?”
And Carson’s reply, via email: “We the people would oppose it through our Constitution, the 22nd Amendment of which forbids more than two terms. Even some of the timid people in the other two branches of government would be willing to stand behind the fortified walls of our Constitution.”
Sounds reasonable – but the buzz persists.
The buzz that you’re creating, of course. This is so much easier than doing actual journalism. “But enough about me. What do you think about me?”
