David Brooks: Obama ´Impeachment
Is Obviously Cloud Cuckoo Land´

Breitbart TV, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/12/2014 11:40:28 AM

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’s “NewsHour” New York Times columnist David Brooks and Creators Syndicate columnist Mark Shields took on the House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against the Obama administration, which alleges oversteps in executive authority by the Obama White House. Both acknowledged Boehner’s gripe with the Obama administration had merit, but were skeptical of the lawsuit’s chances. However, they both also took on the alternative offered by former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), which was to impeach President Barack Obama. Both dismissed that course of action as well, with Brooks calling it “cloud cuckoo land.” Partial transcript as follows: WOODRUFF: So the Highway Trust

Comments:
Isn´t that rich coming from moron who also resided in Cloud Cuckoo Land when he insanely made the determination that Obama would be a very tood president because of his perfectly creased pant. That has to be one of the stupidest things I have ever heard. If he had any credibility he lost it that day.

The right and left in this country are in two entirely different worlds. Communication is pointless at best; damaging at worst.

Sarah deserves our applause for her impeachment comments. In 6 months, the impeachment of the most corrupt president in our history will be demanded by most Americsns. Sarah is just putting the subject on the table for discussion. Leftist loons like Mark Shields and mushies like David Brooks simply can´t knock the subject off of the table.

"Well, the impeachment is obviously cloud cuckoo land."

This out of hand dismissal by Brooks, like others among the NY-DC-Boston Establishment, is yet another endorsement for impeachment - now.

It´s like when a NY stock broker gives a "tip": do the opposite.

Unfortunately Brooks is right. When a few Democrats call for impeachment, that will be the time to strike, but that will never happen.

Agree with #3. After Dems loose big in November survivors will start to cut and run. You saw that in Colorado this eek when the Dem Gov was the only one seen with Obozo. This Border Disaster, coupled with Obamacare will result in a complete meltdown. I estimate one year and serous moves at Impeachment.

Being an incompetent, lazy , stupid , inept ,
unprofessional socialist who hates his job
is not a high crime and misdemeanor.
Disliking every single policy of Obama´s is not grounds for impeachment.
Anyone who has legal evidence of Obama
committing a crime is more than likely
also involved and would never
decide to cooperate with House Republicans.
After 6 years of Obama , it´s pretty clear
the inner circle is tight and
it would take cooperation from them , providing solid evidence to make any kind of criminal case for impeachment.
Lois Lerner has demonstrated that this group knows how to clean up after themselves.
In the unlikely event that Valerie Jarrett or Joe Biden should decide to become an informant , it would require 66 Senators to vote for conviction.
Today there are 45 Senate Republicans , other than Joe Manchin, I cannot think of another Democrat
who might be persuaded to vote aye and it would take 21 of them.
That´s why impeachment is legally improbable and conviction is mathematically impossible.
Impeachment in the House
with the full understanding
that a conviction in the Senate
will never happen is a waste of valuable time that will only make Republicans look foolish.
It would be like starting a war that you knew beforehand that you were definitely going to lose.

Thank you o. 10 for the strong does of reality. If only this crowd would read it.

I keep asking, how do we get around the Senate? No one attempts to answer that one.
If the answer is: "after we win the Senate" that goes without saying but would it not be better to keep quiet for now instead of uttering useless advice that could lose us some votes? If I were not a rock ribbed Republican it would be hard for me to follow anyone talking so stupidly.

I just love the ´it´s too hard, so let´s not try´ crowd that posts here repeatedly. I am glad they weren´t in charge when the country was being built, and during two world wars. We would have never gotten anything done.

This shows why the GOP is becoming a permanent minority party, it has no backbone, and its defenders encourage them to stay that way.

I don´t know if it will succeed, but I know it won´t if it isn´t tried. I am willing to entertain another plan to stop Obama, but I haven´t seen or heard anything resembling a plan from McConnell and Boehner, except a law suit designed to be delayed past January 2017.

I´ve read every thread on the forum every day and not a single person has said that. But, I suspect you are aware of that fact.

Let´s rephrase your characterization: How about "that is a truly stupid idea which will accomplish nothing at all and we refuse to follow the morons who are hollering about it off a fatal cliff".

That´s the way I feel, anyway.

While he probably deserves to be impeached, it´s a bad idea to attempt it right now for the simple reason that the American people are not overwhelmingly in favor.

Yet.

Without that kind of support, any attempt to impeach him will only make him stronger since the press and his other supporters will rally around him.

Right now, the very best path forward is to take back the Senate.

David Brooks is indeed a fake Republican and an effete idiot, but slamming him for using the phrase "cloud cuckoo land" is not a good idea. That phrase comes from Aristophanes, one of the greatest Greek playwrights. At worst, today it is an anachronism.

At a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York Friday, President Obama attributed people´s pervasive sense the world is falling apart to “social media.” “The world’s always been messy… we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” Obama said. “I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” he said. But American military superiority has never been greater, he added, according to a pool report. Obama has faced withering criticism for taking a lengthy vacation that included nine rounds of golf, while terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS) has been on the march in Iraq, an Ebola crisis

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that President Obama may postpone his sweeping executive actions on immigration until after the midterm elections. Why? Because Democrats are begging him to: The two-step plan would bow to the concerns of Democratic lawmakers running in Republican-leaning states who have expressed opposition to Obama’s plans to act unilaterally on the hot-button issue. Some Democratic senators have said he should wait for Congress to pass legislation. Wait. Why would they want to do that? Aren’t the policies Obama is proposing on immigration wildly popular? That’s what they keep telling us, anyway. “I promise you, the American people

“Oops.” In the wake of criticism over a two-game suspension for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, the NFL has established a six-game unpaid ban for personnel who violate the league’s policy on domestic violence, Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday. A second incident would be punished by a lifetime ban from the league, Goodell said in a letter and memo to the owners of the league’s 32 teams. Without referring to Rice by name, he acknowledged in his letter that he made the wrong decision in that case. “I didn’t get it right. Simply put, we have to do better. And we will,” he

Sometimes voter-fraud deniers are forced to discuss the truth of voter fraud. This happened today at the Washington Post (“Fairfax officials say some people may have crossed Va.-Md. line to vote twice in 2012“). While the Post deserves credit from emerging from its cocoon of voter-fraud denial, it deserves scorn for bungling the emergence. Reporter Susan Svrluga notes that “tens of thousands of voters” were registered to cast ballots in both Virginia and Maryland. That’s true, and it is a big problem nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of people are registered to vote in multiple states, and many of them have voted. It

Both Simpsons earned a majority of the vote, effectively pushing out Tea Party Republicans in the precinct.

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign manager, Jesse Benton, is resigning from the campaign. Benton, who previously held high-level roles in Ron Paul and Rand Paul’s campaigns, confirmed his resignation Friday evening, explaining that he is stepping down after his name surfaced in news reports about a scandal involving the 2012 presidential campaign. Earlier this week, a former Iowa state senator pleaded guilty to charges related to receiving money from the Ron Paul presidential campaign in return for his endorsement. Benton, who was Paul’s political director, denies any wrongdoing but admits it has become a distraction for

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson is continuing to hint that he will run for president in 2016, though pledges that if elected he won’t become a “politician” in the traditional sense. “I will tell you that I’m not a politician, and I don’t believe in political correctness,” Carson told the crowd Friday at a political summit in Texas. “So I may say something that will offend someone. And I frankly never plan on becoming a politician. It doesn’t mean that I won’t do something in public office, but I won’t be a politician in the process.” Carson made the comments Friday afternoon in Dallas at Americans for Prosperity’s Defending the American Dream Summit.

The latest Gallup poll on President Obama job performance is out. At the top line, things could be worse for the president and his party. 44 percent approve of his performance, while 53 percent disapprove. That’s considerably worse than in the run-up to the 2010 election, and certainly cause for concern among Democrats. But Dems won’t be surprised by this split which, as I said, could be worse. The intensity numbers, however, are terrible for Obama and the Dems. 39 percent of Americans (essentially 2 in 5) say they strongly disapprove of the president’s performance. Only 17 percent say they strongly approve.

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

Karl Rove is at it once again. The so-called “strategist” is again confusing strategy with tactics, and is about to blow easy Senate pickups in Arkansas and North Carolina. This is not merely snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- this is snatching defeat from the bowels of victory -- in astonishing tone-deaf fashion. There is absolutely no excuse for not winning these two races. So how is the one-time “boy genius” doing this? By running ads attacking Senators Mark Pryor and Kay Hagan from the left. Yes, you heard that right. Rove’s Crossroads GPS PAC is insisting in their latest

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

It´s not been a great summer for President Barack Obama.
