Too Big to Fail
Obama Creating a Fait Accompli?

Stephen Dinan -- Washington Times -- November 25 
Loser Nappy

Analysis: Obama takes on role even before taking office  
     This week, Mr. Obama has taken an active role, holding brief, attention-grabbing press conferences on Monday and Tuesday and scheduling another for Wednesday, all on the economy. He said Tuesday he understands why there are questions about his involvement, having said two weeks ago there would only be one president at a time.
E-mail from Glenn Spencer to author Stephen Dinan:
    The Supreme Court December 5 docket includes two items, anyone of which could end President-elect Obama's chances of being sworn in on January 20. -- Let us assume that Obama knows that he is not qualified to be President of the U.S. and that he thinks the Supreme Court might rule against him. How would he behave? As is he is now - suddenly acting as if he were already president, i.e., creating a fait accompli - thus putting the fear of God into the Supreme Court. [i.e., he would be too big to fail.]
