Writing prompt

Iran is preparing for war in either September or October.

OG blogger Bill Quick believes that President Obama believes that war with Iran is his ticket to re-election.

Assume that both of these are true, and war on some level happens in October.

Now, one more assumption. And this one is a huge one, going against the entirety of U.S. history.

Assume that Obama still loses in November. While hostilities are ongoing.

What will happen, domestically, in that event? I can imagine many, many scenarios. None of them good.

The media will certainly not act in good faith. Quite possibly, neither will Obama.

But from November through the day he legally has to cede power, what would happen in the U.S. if the foregoing assumptions all occur?
