Everyone who thinks one of these scandals will remove Obama from the White House is sadly mistaken.
Let's look at Nixon to see what it takes to remove a President.
In Nixon's case, it took a well prepared and knowledgeable witness John Dean, a lot of tape recordings, a press that hated Nixon, and a political party that was the same as the president and somewhat honest and fair minded.
In Obama's case, we have nothing close to John Dean, we have no recordings, the media still likes Obama and the democrat party is ruthless and corrupt as the mafia.
In short, there will be no impeachment. Get over it.
The best we can do is to administer a beating in the 2014 election.
So what? Impeachment means nothing. Clinton was impeached and the sun rose the next day as if nothing ever happened. Big deal.
Nixon resigned rather than be impeached.
Little did he know that just because you have been impeached doesn't mean you have to leave office.
In fact, shoot down the "I-word". Let the scandals keep coming, and coming, eventually some people will come to the conclusion that Obama is not a leader in any sense of the word.
In fact, his biggest defenders are now floating the "he didn't know anything" defense.
I say let them.
Have the dems actually go on record saying that the POTUS is a know-nothing incompetent boob.
In a way that is almost more satisfying. Watching all of the "Hope and Change" BS go crashing down like the Hindenberg.
If we take the Senate in 2014, he'll have nothing.
I just want his underlings in jail, thats good enough for me.
Let’s don’t be so doom and gloom. We don’t know what is out there. Witnesses might have been hushed who are willing to speak. The media is angry at the latest scandal.
I think that the best we can hope for concerning the Boston Marathon Bomber is that he will receive a stern lecture. There seems to be some girls who like him, so nothing else can be done. The press will cover for him because he’s a Moslem. We might as well go eat worms.
I doubt he was ever a republican.
Just another beltway insider POS.
Too bad Nixon trusted him in the first place.
I won’t say that. Zero’s case is different than Nixon. There are several scandals brewing, and more may be coming. Americans never did like the IRS much, and the justice departments alienating part of the media was/is a BIG mistake. People wre killed at Benghazi. Those people had families that aren’t going to be very forgiving or forgetful as the truth comes out.People are out of jobs and that makes it easier to want to put blame on someone. And the blame for much of the mess is rightfully Obama’s. He is destroying us, never give up.
Right. I think we know these RINOs won’t pursue impeachment. Even if they did the Senate would not convict. We know all that. EVEN SO we should push for the Republicans to do what is right and get as much truth and evidence in the history books as possible. That’s like a baseball team playing a much better team and giving up in the 1st inning.
That is one Fugly MO-FO image!!!
Exactly...DON’T TALK IMPEACHMENT. We are not even close to having the votes, at least in the Senate, and probably the House. (I realize that I’m using the term impeachment to mean removal from office, but that’s how 95% of country uses the term too)
Instead answer as follows:
“We Republicans cannot impeach the President, we simply don’t have enough votes, particularly in the Senate. I think you really need to ask Minority Leader Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid whether using the IRS to target political opponents should be an impeachable office. And while you’re at it, also ask if lying to Congress regarding what happened in Benghazi should be impeachable, as well whether spying on Associated Press reporters should be impeachable.
If the Democrat leaders in the House and Senate still believe that the president shouldn’t be held responsible for these these actions, then I guess he will not get impeached.”
I agree with you that impeachment is not something we need to pursue. He’s becoming a detriment to the party, and the media. I’m pretty sure donations will be difficult for dems to get soon.
He’s their problem, impeachment and removal is probably what they’d like us to do for them. No. Let him dangle in the wind.
2014 will be more like 2010 than 2012, Obama won’t be on the ballot. Then we can begin to “uninstall”.
impeachment would be satisfying but would likely give us another democrat president in ‘16.
We need to kick butt in ‘14. Win more governor’s races.
And then use his 4 years of lame duckness to show low information voters that democrats are even worse than republicans.
Impeachment requires 2/3 of the Senate to make the crime stick. I just don’t see having enough votes. In all honesty, the best scenario we could hope for is to have an impeachment trial begin, or be on the verge of beginning, and for pressure from the democratic party to cause him to resign.
This is how it happened with Nixon. The republicans could no longer deal with the mess and asked him to resign. An added thing was that his ego caused him to record the mess.
I am not saying that Obama will not be run from office. I am saying that there is no way he will be convicted in an impeachment trial unless there is a tremendous smoking gun.
The democrats would rather run him off than have a lingering issue that will cause the IRS or any other extended component of the DNC lose its power. They’ll make him take the blame and resign if they have to, just to save their agencies that do their dirty work with out tax dollars.
To me, the real sadness is that some people at the IRS and possibly the state department will take the hit, but nothing will be done to punish them at large, or prevent them from doing it over and over again. It’s just the world we live in now.
Also, the Republicans were not fair minded, but cowards in forcing Nixon to resign.
Oh goody. The doom and gloom thread.
Reporting in for my daily dose of liberal demoralization!
