Obama will not be impeached.
self | 5-19-13 | self

Posted on 05/19/2013 6:21:13 PM PDT by staytrue

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.

Correct. The clown is putting a lot of garbage out right now so that it will “simmer” by the time of the elections in a 18 months...

The public won’t stay “outraged” forever.

Our task is to continue to peck away at this fascist...reminding over and over again how dangerous his philosophy is to freedom.

We impeached Clinton, and look how that worked out.

We don't want him impeached.

We want him tied up in dozens of criminal investigations for the next 3.5 years, so that he has no time for anything other than defending himself.

No, he’ll find time for golfing and taking expensive vacations at taxpayers expense.

As I’ve repeatedly posted here, 0bama (and most high ranking Democrats) could use a shotgun to murder a dozen praying nuns at high noon on the White House lawn in front of every TV camera in North America, while high on tequila and cocaine, and you’d never hear a peep of it. Or it would be Bush’s fault.

Bingo!

Impeachment would turn him into a martyr.

We want the investigations to continue, we want witnesses coming forward, and we want the “drip, drip, drip” of evidence to keep piling up until even the Obama-loving media has to report it.

Hopefully, even the low-information dolts will get sick of the corruption in this administration and the GOP will take the Senate next year.

Clinton was found guilty of part one of the impeachment and got some punishments form it. You can not say that Obama will never be impeached. You don't really know what else might come up or how thing might change. I think the VP is in trouble also.

He can be neutered with exposure of his “real past” and his criminal actions.

I have said from the beginning. When the “right people” tire of him, he is history.

Think we are getting closer to that.

An unimpeachable witness will appear concerning Benghazi. The spooks do not like being betrayed. Nor do the top military officers. There are some that have not been removed that “know” what actually went down in Benghazi and they would love to expose Obozo.

Nixon was NOT impeached.

Nixon resigned when the Congressional leadership paid him a visit and informed him that they could no longer protect him.

I’m not even sure that a Democrat delegation calling on Obama would encourage him to resign. He’s too arrogant.

I do think Obama is in far more serious trouble than Nixon was but Obama has a party full of adoring marxists who really don’t care about the law.

I meet so many low information voters playing golf on public courses, and most never heard of the IRS harassment, Benghazi or AP story. So do not get your hopes up. The press is doing a great job of protecting the community organizer socialist from Chicago because he is liberal and first black president.

I'm hoping that his credibility will be zero, his personal ethics be known to be non existent and he will be ridiculed from hereon. I'm hoping his legacy as a President for corruption will be below Hayes, Grant, and Nixon.

That is doubtful IMHO, unless the GOP stops the spending binge. The GOP is in charge of all appropriation bills originating in the House - how many times have they caved on debt ceiling, taxes, and continuing resolutions over the past three years? Don't count on my GOP vote in 2014.

He wouldn’t be impeached regardless...unless by some miracle, the GOP gets a 2/3 (non-RINO) majority in the Senate.

We don’t want a martyr. We want him ruined. Destroyed for all history.

It takes a shred of decency for one to resign from the Presidency. Nixon had it; Obama has no such quality, and will never step down.

Correct. It seemed like staytrue didn’t know that Nixon wasn’t impeached.

Not sure why he was drawing the wrong conclusions, but I knew someone would poit out the obvious.

Actually, I know that you’re right.

The Dems were VERY CLEVER in the past week. I heard 3 of their top people do what they did during the very early days of Lewinsky, which was to say the president screwed up and what happened CANNOT BE JUSTIFIED.

So our side figures we have the president on the run...so we run out and start yelling IMPEACHMENT...and we took the bait. Most of the country knows very little about these scandals, but they do hear crackpot-sounding Republicans yelling IMPEACHMENT. At that point, they turn and defend the president. Happened PERFECTLY in the 1990s (removal of Clinton from office never stood a chance, regardless of his felonies), and the Republicans have stepped into it again here.

So what should they have done. Easy. Put it on the Dems, ask them why they don’t have a problem with Benghazi, AP phone tapping, and IRS intimidation. But we don’t make them answer, and so they wind up beating us again...

I don’t know stay true, but I suspect that he is younger than I.

I suspect if someone conducted “man on the street” interviews that the majority of Americans would answer that Nixon was impeached and that Clinton was not. I was even engaged in a conversation about that with a die-hard Republican who is old enough to know better the other night, and he was confused on the topic.

The press doesn’t cover events accurately, and the schools don’t teach history. No wonder people are confused.

We impeached Clinton, and look how that worked out. We don't want him impeached.

Worked out fine compared to NOT impeaching him and doing nothing. Of course we want Obama impeached. The only issue is the fact we do not have warriors willing to do this job. That does not stop us from doing the right thing and demanding the Republicans investigate all of this thoroughly and take it wherever it goes including impeachment.

Agreed. Nixon was NOT impeached, clinton was.

Just because the rinos sold us out on impeachment-with the help of a complicit media, doesn’t mean we should not have impeached the corrupt slime-ball. Had clinton not been impeached, all the scandals would have simply been forgotten. Impeachment will follow him forever.

Democrats have no shame. Impeachment is a badge of honor.

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.

This is one thing that the GOP needs to stop saying, NOW. Don't mention "Impeachment". It will then look partisan and the press WILL turn on republicans like hell has been unleashed.

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.

Don't know what will happen. I don't have much faith in Congress to get to the bottom of all the scandals. If low level people start being thrown under the bus and face prison time things will start to surface that will take out higher ups. It's a matter of which whistle-blowers come forward with what evidence. Obama and his crew are in this over their heads now and will play whatever cards they must to hide, delay, deflect, intimidate, frame, payoff, threaten, or worse. We can only hope and pray that this tyranny ends before our nation does.

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 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.

According to the book "Silent Coup," the Watergate break-in had nothing to do with Nixon. John Dean's fiancee had been a call-girl for DNC swells, and he ordered the break-in to steal the list of call-girls.
