The countdown begins and in just a few short weeks, we will get to witness the swearing in of President Mitt Romney.
Yes, just when you thought the election was over, and Tea Party zealots were content to drown their sorrows in salty tears and secession petitions, one group of Republican enthusiasts have come up with a last minute scheme to undo the second term of President Barack Obama. They are plotting to take over the electoral college.
Via the Idaho Statesman, some Republicans, including a Utah lawmaker, are floating a theory that if enough states refuse to participate in the electoral college then a quorum could not be reached, and President Obama would not be elected to a second term. The idea is being touted by Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips, and is being taken seriously by others in the party frustrated with their election day defeat.
