Can't we just make this nickname go away?

DRM, you do realize that an incumbent re-elected is not a lame duck?

DRM says:
Remember, George Bush was SO Dumb. And a Liar. And a Murderer.

But people cry Race when another president's smarts are put into question.

The fact is he admits in his Dreamy book about his father that he "spent the last two years of high school in a daze."

Not conducive for building a Strong Education and Intellectual foundation for college and beyond.

you don't need the word 'duck' in your title

Here is the definition of a lame duck.
"lame duck
n
1. a person or thing that is disabled or ineffectual
2. (Economics, Accounting & Finance / Stock Exchange) Stock Exchange a speculator who cannot discharge his liabilities
3. (Business / Commerce) a company with a large workforce and high prestige that is unable to meet foreign competition without government support
4. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) US
a. an elected official or body of officials remaining in office in the interval between the election and inauguration of a successor
b. (as modifier) a lame-duck president

So president Obama is a lame duck.

re:

DRM heard the word "lame duck" somwhere and knows its used betewen election day the end of the year. So DRM uses it here because the timing is right. DRM obviuosly has no idea what a "lame duck" is within a politcal context.

This pretty much sums up the bulk of the GOP base....Ill informed, living in the Fox News bubble.

A customer says:
Stretching the meaning of the phrase 'lame duck' as far as one can, then technically, Obama is now a lame-duck president. But, to the politically astute-- and that phrase, 'politically astute', leaves people like DMR, Dickle McDickle, Captain, et al, so far removed from the rest of the world they're in another galaxy-- Obama's true lame duck presidency will occur between Nov 2016 and Jan 20, 2017.
DMR and Dicky McDicky sound like a million other reprobates from the Rep side of the tracks-- sophomoric, puerile, infantile and just plain ignorant. I imagine they thank the god of anonymity each evening because w/o him they'd both either be institutionalized or bludgeoned.

Can you explain to me if we were against the president's policies before the election why his drones believe we shouldn't be against his policies just because he was re-elected? I suppose they think we should overlook his failures over the last 4 years and if we don't that somehow makes us sore losers.

If you guys represent real Americans, why is it worth saving?

DCSports says:
lol -- how sad! You are poking fun, and demonstrate a lack of understanding of the term.

Lame Duck is normally used to describe the second term of a president (or last term of another term limited office), when the office holder can't run for re-election.

DCSports says:
lol -- you too. Technically, his lame duck term starts in January 2013.

If it makes you heal quicker by calling Obama a "lame duck", go right ahead...
As a public service, I need to tell you that you will wake up the next 1,530 days referring to Obama as a lame duck.

I'm good with that.

CONGRATULATIONS DRM!!! A short, concise title. See, I knew you could do it!

This is exactly the kind of comment and thinking that is destroying the Republican party.

Intrepid says:
The customary usage of "lame duck" refers to someone who cannot effect changes as his term winds down - typically in the last months or year in office.

I have not seen it used even before inauguration for the term of office.

Better still look at 4, 4a and 4b for correct usage.

What I do find interesting is only about 50% of eligible voters cast ballots in this election. I think it is pretty sad that about half the country is willing to let the other half call the shots.

Who says Obama has to leave office after completing his second term, Eagle Eye?

He thinks there are 57 states and doesn't seem to have a copy of the Constitution. What's to stop him from a third term?
