This topic will simulate the consequences of a 2011 bombing of the Capitol Building on the night of the 2011 State of the Union address.  President Obama, along with Vice President Biden and much of the Presidential Line of Succession were killed in the bombing.  The topic will cover the new President's Presidency as well, and will hopefully go on for a long time.

Background:  President Barack H. Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States in 2008.  He was inaugurated in 2009, and promised big changes. 

On January 26, 2011, Barack Obama's second State of the Union address was scheduled to be held.  After his first two years as President, Unemployment rested at 9.1 percent.  A Healthcare bill with a restricted public option was passed with bipartisan approval.  A second stimulus package was passed.  Overall, Barack Obama's approval rating had improved to 59%.


I know I'm new here, but I've been reading these topics for a while and I thought I'd give it a try.  I like to think I know a great deal about politics, so I'll give it a go.

A Healthcare bill with a restricted public option was passed with bipartisan approval.  A second stimulus package was passed.

I can't see these two things happening.

Background of Perpetrator:

Afshar Akbari was born in Tehran, Iran in 1980.  In 1982, his father moved his wife and son to Detroit, Michigan.  Akbari received American citizenship in 1984, and graduated high school with honors in 1998.  

He was a supporter of the Clinton government, and entered the United States military in 1998.  He served one term of duty, and was honorably discharged in 2002.  However, he was disgusted by the prejudice against Arab Americans after 9/11.  Even as a member of the armed forces he faced discrimination.

He was repeatedly turned down for entrance into Secret Service training, and he suspected it was due to his faith.  He eventually was accepted into the Capitol Police in 2005.  However, the discrimination he continued to face gradually caused some radical positions.  In 2007, he began speaking to a Muslim preacher with connections to Al Qaeda in Somalia.  

Over the next two years, they began planning the most damaging terrorist attack in the history of the United States.  By 2010, all that was left was to produce a bomb.  By November of 2010, the explosive was ready for use.  

Yes, it's partially taken from Nadal Malik Hassan.  It's a pretty outrageous situation, but this is semi-possible, so I thought I'd do this.

I see the first as plausible.  The second is pretty unlikely, but I wanted to relay the message that everyone was getting along and were looking up in America.

As I said restricted...And by that I mean very restricted.  And by bipartisan I mean about 5 Republican votes. 

Anyways, it doesn't really matter.  I was just trying to relay a message.

5 Republican votes is not bipartisan. Something genuinely bipartisan has at least 1/3 of the members of each party supporting it (at least in my opinion). 5 Republican votes is essentially a Democratic bill. Anyway, other than that, good timeline. Keep up the good work.

5 Republican Votes? Impossible. You can't even get Collins or Snowe, let alone McCain or Lugar.

My fellow Americans,

Today, as you know, a terrible tragedy occurred in this nation.  I am speaking to you as your Acting President.  As your Acting President, I have terrible news.  Today, we lost two men who defined an era; our President, Barack Obama; and our Vice President, Joseph Biden.  I saw these men as friends and collegues.  Barack Obama and Joseph Biden changed America, they saved America.  We will remember them forever as men who defied the status quo and did all they could to help the American people.  As long as this nation lives, so shall they.

Today, we face turmoil.  Our nation is facing a threat larger than any other in its history.  We have been struck in a terrible way.  I tell you now, we will find those responsible.  We will find them, and we will destroy them.  These people will not receive pity from the United States of America. 

However; tonight, I ask all Americans to feel not hate, but to grieve for our fallen leaders.  Only the Lord knows how many lives were lost in this senseless attack.  I ask that you keep their souls in your hearts and prayers.  This is an hour that tests our strength, that troubles our minds, and that hurts our souls.  With the help of each other and the lord, we will persevere. 

The world will once again know the strength of the American people.  We will come from this tragedy a stronger and greater people, and a stronger and greater nation.  We relentlessly do.  The spirit of America is undying, and the world will know that once more.

For now, I ask that the prayers of all Americans and all citizens of the world go out to all those affected by this disaster.  May God bless America, President Obama, Vice President Biden, and all those souls who lost their lives tonight. 

Thank you.

So a lack of knowledge means I'm not welcome here? I've always wondered why there's a lack of Republicans on this forum and now I'm beginning to see why.

Wait a sec.  Nancy Pelosi surviving that sort of incident while sitting a foot behind Obama?  No.

BTW, it's incredibly unlikely to have an Al-Qaeda agent from Teheran.

Einzige is a poltroon who cowardly turns down duel challenges he should be honor-bound to accept. The Code Duello authorizes you to mock and belittle such a pathetic honorless scoundrel.

Yeah, I thought about that a few minutes after posting...I'll revise it.

The entire roof of the chamber collapsed.  The Supreme Court survived because they were sitting in an area without falling debris.  It came down to feet as to who died and who didn't.

It's incredibly unlikely for a plot like this to occur.  I simply chose Iran.  The terrorist was only a plot piece.
