Next in the line of succession is Speaker John Boehner. He sees his opportunity and decides that he can be more effective continuing as Speaker then by being president, so he appoints Mitt Romney as his Vice President per the 25th Amendment - and then resigns.

Mitt Romney then becomes the 47th President of the United States (and 4th in two months) and appoints Paul Ryan as V.P.

Wow, just wow. Go back on your meds, please.

Anyway, it's not gonna happen, because we're going to get hit by a rogue dark star on December 21, 2012.

It makes more sense than your scenario.

Sounds very anti-American to me.

Uh, sure, that's why we're seeing nonsense like the OPs pipe dream posted again and again.

Clean up your own back yard before commenting on your neighbors.

Dear OP,

Did you really consider this scenario as a serious possibility? Because if you did, you have a serious disconnect from reality.

Of course, the first assumption is that Mr. Obama would get removed from office, which requires conviction in the Democratically controlled Senate. You really don't think this is plausible, do you?

You really can't accept that Mr. Obama is, and will continue to be, the President of the United States of America.

The OP is the most delusional thing I've ever read in this forum. Romney lost fair and square. This is democracy not a monarchy. You don't get a do-over. And if you don't like the election results tough. It's disgusting that some Republicans can't get that through their tiny brains.

Amen. Our system is tremendously fair to all, and sometimes, you should simply graciously congratulate those you dislike the views of. But doing so requires CLASS.

BTW, one of the classiest concession speeches I heard (although not officially one as VPs never officially make one) was Dan Quayle's 92 speech. I was not a Quayle fan, but it did make me wonder if he had better character than generally assumed.

That didn't stop Al Gore from wanting a do-over in 2000, nor keep some people on the loony left still screaming that he was "robbed".

Never considered that you were a fish - glaciers on Shasta may be rivers - but they are rather solid.

Actually, yes. It did. He never asked for a do over.
