The costly fantasy of impeaching Obama
Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/15/2014 5:12:58 AM

The Democrats owe a growing debt to the Republican red-hots pursuing the fantasy of impeaching Barack Obama. They’re collecting a lot of cash — probably not as much as they claim, but a lot — from the naive and excitable folks in the Democratic base. Outrage is easily convertible to cash, as every bagman knows, and the Republicans should get a cut of it. Fair is fair. Sarah Palin, who as a former governor knows better than to confuse hoping with doing, is leading the baying hounds this week. She told an audience the other day that “the many impeachable offenses

Falls short of bribery or treason, eh?

I remember way back around the 2008 campaign there was a clear incident of bribery, something to do with the Obammunist´s buying a Senate seat - a Jack Cashill story IIRC.

And treason? Look no further than Benghazi.

Prudent is writing foolishness here.

I guess,according to Pruden and his ilk,Obama needs to decapitate a baby on national TV to be impeached. Aiding and abetting a silent invasion of this country means nothing.It´ll create 1000´s of bilingual teachers,medical aids etc. if nothing else. Already overcrowd prisons can always make room for new illegal criminals.They could even release old criminal aliensto makeroom.Ooops,Obama has already done that.

What aboutinterferringin the internalafars of othersoverign cuntries,such as demanding Mubarak leave offce and bombing the dog snotout of Gadiffi who was ahalfway decent world player at the time.What abut the gross negligence on ISIS formulating over 2 years without a single stern letter from Obama.

Of curse the lists goes on and on,lust like having Holder shake banks down with fines for doing exactly what they were forced to do by community activists like Obama. Obama was a party to a CITIbank lawsuit to pressure them into making for foolish subprime loans.

Hey Wesley, I think the threat is worth the effort. The sign I hold is "Fish rot from the head, Impeach Obama". The reaction I get is very satisfying. MA will elect a lot more Republicans this Fall.

Anyone who hates what the Tea Party wants and what Sarah Palin is fighting for is an enemy of our nation and any hope for the prosperity of United States of America.....or what it was and could be again. I do not trust anyone who makes up charges against those who are fighting for restoration of our nation and our freedoms. That IS the bottom line.

I understand the thinking (including by some on this forum) that pushing for impeachment prior to the critical November election may be counter-productive. However, if Obama isn´t considered impeach-worthy then nobody is or ever will be.

Seriously, has anyone ever so brazenly acted in such an unconstitutional manner? Why split legal hairs trying to ascertain whether he has committed "high crimes and misdemeanors" when almost everything he does is unconstitutional and is a textbook definition of a dictator ?
Our founders would be shocked that our Congress and our Supreme Court have not yet stopped him. He is precisely what our founders sought to avoid, and ultimately remove, with the constitution they created.

And stop with the reminders that the Democrat-controlled Senate wouldn´t vote to remove him from office. The only question that´s relevant is has he repeatedly disobeyed and subverted the constitution that he took an oath to defend. And the answer is clearly and unequivocally, yes. Impeach.

High Crimes means crimes which can only be committed by the holder of a high office. It refers to their maladministration and shredding the constitution as Obama is doing. The crimes of Obama affect everybody while other crimes only affect the person being killed and their family. This is not an ordinary crime that anyone can commit like murder! Obama is transforming the country as he promised which is a high crime. He is transforming it from a prosperous world power to a third world tin pot dictatorship. It is a disaster for every citizen. Should we all ignore this because Eric the Holder will say we are all racists? We proved we were not racist by electing Obama the first time but we failed to prove we were not fools by electing him the second time.

You point is well taken, #6, but it is also true that the founders never envisioned a country in which half the population, the Congress and the judiciary would be in thrall to a twisted, collectivist ideology which, for them, overrides all principles of law, republicanism and self-government.

That grim reality tends to complicate things.

So Obama is totally allowed to ruin this nation and nothing can be done about it because he is black? Rubbish. Donations to the Republicans are down because they are meekly accepting what ever Obama orders, few are fighting back. Meanwhile Americans are appalled daily over the deliberate destruction of our healthcare, our military, our borders and the dimming future for our children and grandchildren. If Obama can´t be impeached then we might as well strike impeachment out of the Constitution because it is meaningless.

You guys don´t get it. Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer will block any attempt at impeachment. Say what you will, but there is nothing Republicans can do other than taking a symbolic vote. As Pruden points out, the Dems win the battle and damage Republicans´ attempt to take control of the Senate.

So give it a rest. Purity will do nothing for the Republicans. Things could be different with a Republican controlled Senate. Republicans must play a long game. It has worked very well for the Democrats over the years. Have Republicans learned nothing?

A futile gesture such as preparing a doomed bill of impeachment accomplishes nothing but to make us feel good. While we´re getting warm fuzzies, we´re diverting attention from the urgent crises, wasting energy, time and money. The only route to reclaiming the country is at the voting booth, beginning in November.

Even if O´bammy was impeached I doubt if he would step down - he´d consider it an unconstitutional move and ignore it. Who would stop him? I can´t believe after all this clown has done that he will leave office without the stain of impeachment on him. Clinton, after all, was impeached for lying about an airstart in the oval office. Ah, the good old days. We have fallen so far so fast in such a short time.....

#13, It probably is meaningless in a practical sense. As Pruden points out, it´s never worked historically. Obama would be acquitted by the senate, and, like Clinton, he´d probably become more popular.

This is the worse kind of symbolic gesture, because it would not only be doomed, but it would be destructive to conservative interests.

# 14 - Reid and Schumer are in the Senate. The House does not need their vote to impeach nor can they cast a vote for impeachment. The House can impeach. The spineless Senate dominated by DEMS and RINOs most likely won´t Convict and throw him out of office.

If one believes in obama´s story of his birth, researchers have indicated he is half white, 6-1/3% BLACK and 43-2/3s ARAB. Let´s impeach the White/Arab make-up of him.

The reasons and evidence to impeach Zipw0n are clear. Many times over. The ability and the will are not there at all. The resident has been given a clear message that there is nothing he can´t do, and nothing he does will cause his impeachment. We are living the tyranny of that decision. It can´t get better with meaningless threats being bantered about.
At last, his own party is starting to resist him. Our only hope lies in that direction, not with the Repubs.

This reminds me of trying to have a discussion with a college kid. In trying to appear wise, they consider every possible angle and nuance, to the point that the original question gets clouded or lost.
Original question...Has the president committed high crimes and misdemeanors? If yes, has any other remedy (such as congressional action) stopped the behavior?

See? We make things way too complicated.

There are many posts here on the theme this is not the right time to fight, fight next time. I heard that before. I think it was when the balanced budget amendment was discussed but the GOP strategists said they would fight on the debt ceiling. Remember that! The GOP and many posters here are actually quite consistent in sticking to their principles. Lets fight next time! They are saying it now and when next time comes these strategic geniuses will say the same.

Ron Washington, one of my all-time favorite sports characters and people, obviously did the wrong thing. How wrong, I don’t know. Maybe we will never know. But if nothing else, RonWash followed a wrong thing with a right move. He quit as manager of the Texas Rangers. Quitting with four weeks remaining in a bottom-of-the-ditch baseball season sent the local media, me included, into a what-the-hell frenzy, and also prompted some colleagues into a finger-wagging overreaction. “Wash quit on the team.” “He’s no better than Yu Darvish.” While not one normally inclined to caution others against a strong sports opinion, even I was heard suggesting restraint on

The former director of both the CIA and the National Security Agency also raised eyebrows when he likened the temptation to lean on air power to casual sex. “The reliance on air power has all of the attraction of casual sex: It seems to offer gratification but with little commitment,” said Gen.

While AmeriCorps has produced many photo opportunities that warmed politicians´ hearts, the "national service" revolution the agency promised remains a mirage.

What should we make of the summer soldier/sunshine patriot who sits in the White House and acts both as commander in chief and golfer in chief — never allowing the former to get in the way of the latter?

Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent, the new group announced last week by Ayman al-Zawahiri to bolster his flagging fortunes, suffered a setback when three of its fighters were killed and seven arrested in its first ever terror attack. Heavily armed militants attacked a naval dock in Karachi´s sea port on Saturday night and targeted what they believed was an American aircraft carrier, but instead found a Pakistan Navy frigate and were overwhelmed before they could cause any damage, investigators said. Three jihadis were killed in the attack, four were captured and another three arrested the following day on information from interrogations. Two

Turkey, a NATO ally and host to two U.S. Air Force bases, will not cooperate with the attacks on ISIS. The AFP reports: Turkey will refuse to allow a U.S.-led coalition to attack jihadists in neighboring Iraq and Syria from its air bases, nor will it take part in combat operations against militants, a government official told AFP Thursday. Turkey made a similar refusal during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, which it disapproved of. This time, however, Ankara has shown at least some concern about ISIS, which has attacked Turkey directly. So what is going on? Turkey may be reluctant to act because

Before he hit the best-seller list for the first time with Glitz in 1985, Elmore Leonard spent more than 30 years writing pulp crime novels and westerns that sold in paperback racks in drug stores and bus stations.

The rising clamor over the beheading of two Americans, and rapidly sinking polls, forced President Obama to reassure the nation last week he had a plan to deal with the Islamic State. He did some of what he had to do, but only some, and so most military analysts believe the expanded airstrikes will not be a sufficient match for the size and weaponry of the terrorist army. They miss the point. The disjointed speech wasn’t really about terrorism and launching a new war. It was about saving Obama’s presidency. He is sinking fast and could soon pass the point of no

WASHINGTON – Democrats are discovering that maintaining control of the U.S. Senate in the November elections could prove to be a rather ambitious task, particularly with the political map favoring Republicans and many of the issues now falling into the GOP’s lap as well. Republicans need to pick up six seats to wrest control of the upper chamber from the Democrats. Making the job easier, perhaps, is the manner in which the contests are lined up – Democrats have to defend seven seats in states that were captured by unsuccessful Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012. That, combined with a general

His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic.

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Let’s start with the end.
