The weird U.S. politics of 2014: Democrats
dream of Obama´s impeachment

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 7/30/2014 9:29:58 AM

Here´s how twisted, even sadly comical, our politics have become under the once-promising, new-age Democrat president who was going to unite Americans in hope and change: Obama and his party now suggest Republicans impeach the man who has so often violates the law by rewriting the law to suit himself. And -- wait for it -- Republicans, who lead the successful impeachment drive against the last Democrat to serve two White House terms, are wisely resisting the useless idea.

Is Obama´s wish for impeachment to be the first shot fiired in the United States civil war against itself?

And again, Republicans should run with this. Ask why so many democrats are talking about impeachment. Maybe subconsciously they want obamoa impeached. What do they know that we don´t.

"But, as planned by the White House, it would distract everyone from ObamaCare, the lies, the debt, the scandals and overseas failures."

Just the opposite. All these issues would be "front and center" as the merit of impeachment is debated. The charges will be all over the media. The public attention will be riveted in a manner dwarfing the O.J. Trial, Casey Anthony, the Petersons, Susan Smith, "Monicagate", and even Watergate itself.

Why? Because the abuses of the Emperor - granting work permits to illegals, the disaster that is Obamacare, a world spinning towards WWIII, the loss of Constitutional order, and on and on .. - affects them, their futures, and that of their children. It is personal.

And it will continue, as our would-be dictator accelerates his effort to consolidate his power and transform the nation.

That is a big difference from the Clinton impeachment, and even Watergate.

Those who like to hold up the effort to remove B.J. conveniently forget that the issue was whether the "perv in chief" committed offenses that rose to the level of impeachment. The public and the Senate concluded otherwise.

There is no such doubt that the offenses of the Emperor rise to the level of impeachment. The only hesitation rests on political worries.

A huge difference.

That is why the Dems, the GOP elites, and their apologists are wrong - and the Framers were correct.

After removing from office he should be tried for treason and then sentenced for that and we all know what that is. But I know none of this is possible due to the lying media.

Obama is the perfect example of everything that was wrong with LBJ´s affirmative action concept. Our 1st ´black´ president is such a horrible choice and has done countless things to get himself impeached, yet the GOP cowers at the thought. If we as a nation cannot remove a sitting president who deserves to be let go, then how will we ever impeach a future ´minority´ president should the need arise? The Dems will surely nominate only a woman, a Hispanic or a black as their presidential candidate, knowing that person can get away with anything. It seems we are now a nation that adheres to the Rule of Subjective Law, that is to say the president makes it up as he goes along.

Forget impeachment. Indictment and conviction are far more appropriate, and doesn´t leave the process up to an ignorant partisan lowlife like Hawwy Weed. Throw in a few extra orange jumpsuits for Holder, Lerner and Hillary as well.

The Founders would be aghast to see their lives, fortunes and sacred honor were wasted on an electorate willing to elevate lawlessness to the highest levels of government, with no repercussions against the offenders.

President Obama´s weekly remarks: As Commander in Chief, my highest priority is the security of the American people. And I’ve made it clear that those who threaten the United States will find no safe haven. Thanks to our military and counter-terrorism professionals, we took out Osama bin Laden, much of al Qaeda’s leadership in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and leaders of al Qaeda affiliates in Yemen and Somalia. We’ve prevented terrorist attacks, saved American lives and made our homeland more secure. Today, the terrorist threat is more diffuse, from al Qaeda affiliates and other extremists—like ISIL in Syria and Iraq.

Finally! Barack Obama spoke like a president Wednesday night. In his long overdue national address to Americans on the terrorist threat of ISIS, he spoke with clear purpose, well-crafted phrases and reasoning that made sense to attentive ears. He listed specific actions to degrade and destroy these masked murderers. He looked firm, resolute and determined to address this foreign threat that has frightened his countrymen. [Snip] Unfortunately, these 1,985 well-spoken words of Obama’s come in the context of a presidency that’s been degraded and virtually destroyed by his own actions -- and inactions.

President Obama was not trying to be funny when he informed NBC´s newest TV host that the presidency involves an element of theater. No kidding, Barack. But it came out hilariously from the guy who gave his 2008 nomination acceptance speech with a backdrop of fake Greek columns -- in Denver. [Snip] “Part of this job," Obama told Chuck Todd, "is also the theater of it. Well, it´s not something that always comes naturally to me." (Nationwide laughter.) Obama´s entire presidency -- every one of the 2,963,520 minutes of it -- has been about show biz.

The fact that Barack Obama is still fundraising at a record pace nearly two years after his final legal election isn´t surprising. Nor that his people are doing it while the boss traveled abroad dominating TV news through predictable photo-ops with other NATO leaders. All while ISIS continues its appalling slaughter in Iraq and Syria and Russia´s Putin prolongs his armed absorption of Ukraine. After all, no Democrat candidate in their left mind who´s interested in actually competing come Nov. 4 wants to be seen anywhere near this guy.

Vice President Joe Biden gives President Obama´s weekly remarks: Ladies and gentlemen, this is Joe Biden, I’m filling in for President Obama, while he addresses the NATO summit in Wales. When the President and I took office in January of 2009, this nation was in the midst of the greatest economic crisis since the great depression. Our economy had plummeted at a rate of 8% in a single quarter — part of the fastest economic decline any time in the last half century. Millions of families were falling underwater on their homes and threatened with foreclosure. The iconic American automobile industry was under siege.

For someone who entered America´s national life as a bright man who was a Real Good Talker, Barack Obama has slid precipitously, not just in the polls but in public perceptions. Of course, he would never admit it; in fact, he would never comprehend it. But this continuing decline is, in large part, his own fault. Like cake, Obama wants his rhetoric and credibility too. [Snip] Does the president of the United States have any core beliefs lasting longer than a paragraph?

People seem to be reading into President Obama´s positions on ISIS pretty much whatever they want to see: He´s wise and deliberate. He´s indecisive. He´s so far-sighted that ordinary Americans may be incapable of grasping his intellect. He´s late, as always, inept and clueless about dangerous issues of grave concern to nationwide. As Americans see countrymen beheaded on graphic videos, Obama and his team consistently seek to minimize spreading foreign violence as regional "challenges."

Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry.

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. 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. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

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. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.

President Obama said there is a “silver lining” in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, arguing that Middle Eastern nations could use the opportunity to build a lasting anti-terror coalition. "We´re going to be able to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead but also isn´t entirely dependent on what we do," Obama told a group of Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Baltimore. Arab nations needed to "snuff out" that type of "Islamic extremism," he added. The president said he was confident that the U.S. would be able to put together an international coalition
