Ted Cruz Doesn’t Echo Sarah
Palin’s Impeachment Call

National Review Online, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/10/2014 8:52:47 AM

Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) chose not to echo Sarah Palin’s call for House Republicans to impeach President Obama, though he reiterated his belief in the “lawlessness” of the president. “That is a decision for the House of Representatives,” Cruz told National Review Online when asked if he agrees with Palin. ”I serve as the ranking member of the Constitution Subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and, in that capacity, I have been working hard to describe in comprehensive detail the lawlessness of President Obama and the Obama administration. We’ve put out a series of reports about the consistent pattern of

Comments:
I doubt Senator Cruz relishes the idea of being anyone´s "echo", much less Sarah Palin´s.

´much less Sarah Palin´s´

Suddenly the OP shows respect for Cruz because it looks like he dissed Palin? That´s pretty amusing to see.

It looks to me like she´s serving up the discussion of Obama´s lawlessness, and others, like Cruz, are following up. It also looks like it´s working given the rising number of articles and discussions on the topic.

Not a bad strategy, for someone who´s only interested in their ´brand´.

Cruz is aware that you need 67 senators to convict, which would require 22 Democrats to vote against the president, and that´s not going to happen.

Doing your duty is always difficult and sometimes against the odds, but Obama has committed many impeachable offenses, and if the constitution is to mean anything, he should be impeached. If Congress cannot do its duty, then they should resign.

There is no disagreement between Cruz and Palin. Nice try, Joel. Senator Cruz has nothing but the greatest respect for the former Governor. It was she who lent her considerable clout when many Texans did not know him from boo. Sarah can say things a sitting Senator cannot. Both Sarah and Senator Cruz hilly aware of this. The question was only asked to play cable news invent-a-conflict.

He doesn´t "echo" her because he says it´s a decision for the House of Representatives. But he doesn´t disagree with her, either. He says that "sadly" the Democrats would never go along with it. Maybe articles should be read before being posted with snarky comments.

Actually, #14, she´s asking other people to take all the risks on her behalf. She´s not doing a thing. It takes no courage for a private citizen to call for Obama´s impeachment. On the other hand, it´ll probably up donations to Sarahpac--a fact of which I´m sure she´s well aware.

Sometimes leaders must stand alone - until facts on the ground finally draw the crowd to their position.

Sarah is leading. Ted isn´t quite there yet.

He will be. Many others will be.

The facts will not change. The Emperor must be impeached. Boehner will toy with his lawsuit. That will take years, and any judgement will simply be ignored, if not already moot when delivered. Efforts to cut funding, even if "successful", will be ignored and circumvented by executive order. Who will stop the Emperor from writing his own checks or IOUs? In the end: only impeachment and removal - or extra Constitutional measures other nations have employed to remove dictators - will stop him. Let´s stay within the Constitution while we still can. Impeach - now.

Ok, #16. Every criticism you listed could apply to Mitt Romney. There is no "Romneypac" to my knowledge but he is at the beck and call of the GOP so he can feather the political nest for his son. Spread the money around and collect the chits later. With his limited governing experience, I would not call his comments all that important to the body politic either.

FTA: Cruz said, " Harry Reid is President Obama’s chief enabler by preventing the Senate from engaging in any meaningful oversight or holding the president accountable for his lawlessness."

Cruz focuses on what is really going on - Reid has hijacked the Senate and ended any and all oversight of the executive branch. Get rid of Reid (as Majority leader) and you may get some oversight. Spelling that out - he wants the Senate to flip.

Even Pat Buchanan ( a self-described ´paleo-conservative´) writes that the flames of impeachment are actually being fanned by the Democrats - who realize that such a folly by the GOP is about the only thing that can keep the Senate in Democratic hands - and also stop the PR hemorrhaging from the Obama administration. http://www.unz.com/pbuchanan/impeachment-a-bridge-too-far/

#18, Romney isn´t asking anyone to commit professional or political suicide, which Palin is, at no cost to her. Cruz, on the other hand, understands that impeachment without conviction--which is what the situation would result in--endangers the future of conservatism.

There is only so much that can be done. Ted and Sarah appear to have great respect for the other. He is aware that where he stands today is due in part to Sarah´s determination and influence. Impeachment would be the final result were we to have a functional congress. To begin now would only infuriate the obomba ignorant voters and inspire his base to turn out en mass and fraud in order to clear the the murky mulatto muslim. Sara has instinct. She will be awaiting the right sign and then make her move. Timing is everything. Ted and Sarah make one h´ll of a team.

Yes, Sarah and Ted are highly admired in this household.

Cruz is out there putting his money where his mouth is and says what he wants as a senator. Good for him because that is more dangerous to his job than the talking heads´ jobs.

#20, It is not apples and oranges, in my opinion anyway.
Neither Mitt nor Sarah are elected officials. Romney uses his perch amongst the NE moneyed set in order to help the cause. Sarah has a different set of followers and she raised money, speaks out however she can to help the cause. We really don´t disagree about each important figure speaking out. We just disagree on which personality we like. I meant no offense. We really are all in this war together - against the Obamanation.

Senate Republicans are planning aggressive action to intensify oversight of the Obama administration and move conservative legislation long stymied by the Democrats if they win control of the upper chamber in the midterm elections. Republican leaders are promising a complete makeover of the chamber that goes beyond changes in legislative priorities, according to knowledgeable GOP sources. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, expected to become the next majority leader as long as he wins re-election on Nov. 4, plans to return power to the committees and promote a freewheeling debate process that allows members to shape legislation through a vigorous

Last week, a mass email went out at Yale University (my alma mater) protesting an upcoming visit from Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a political activist and staunch critic of Islam. The subject line reads, “Dear Friends: More Speech, Not Hate Speech.” The email reveals that by “hate speech,” the writers mean what the Left usually means when they use that term: “opinions we don’t agree with.” Thirty-two student organizations signed the email under the leadership of Yale’s Muslim Student Association (MSA). That’s a revised number after the MSA was forced to reveal that its original list of 36 organizations was falsified. So,

There were the two leaders, deep in conversation as they walked along the Sabarmati River, Xi dressed in a Nehru jacket. The men are full of praise for one another, and one another´s countries.

EDINBURGH, Scotland - Scottish voters have resoundingly rejected independence, deciding to remain part of the United Kingdom after a historic referendum that shook the country to its core. The decision prevented the rupture of a 307-year union with England, bringing a huge sigh of relief to Britain´s political establishment, including Prime Minister David Cameron, who faced calls for his resignation if Scotland had broken away. The vote on Thursday - 55 percent against independence to 45 percent in favor - saw an unprecedented turnout of just under 85 percent. A majority of voters did not embrace Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond´s impassioned plea

If there is one thing that the Administration and Democratic candidates have in their favor going into the mid-term elections, it is that election day is November 4, and Obamacare’s second open enrollment begins on November 15. If the dates were flipped, there is little doubt that voters affected by Obamacare would wreak havoc on the politicians who imposed the Rube Goldberg contraption of exchanges on them. Despite having just tossed another $60 million out the window “to help consumers navigate their health care coverage options in the Health Insurance Marketplace,” the Administration will likely face an even more bemused and

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security
