Obama impeachment...really?
« on: December 04, 2013, 05:55:49 PM »

If they actually vote to impeach Obama, it will not be for whatever reasons they pretend to give.  It will be because they are desperately trying to head off political disaster.  They don't even have the "smoking gun" of him lying under oath, like with Clinton.  It will be nothing but an excuse and a good way to ensure that they lose even more political support amongst everyone but extreme right-wing Republicans.

It will help immensely in helping the sane world recognize how clearly dysfunctional the house GOP is.  Embarrassing.

It's all just a show for the Republican base. The sad thing is, they do more harm than just being a spectacle.

They know they don't have cause to inpeach him.  But it would be a Teabagger's wet dream to subpoena him to sit for endlessless hearings in a faux attempt to.

Today on Diane Rehm, they discussed a new book,"Throw Them All Out: How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich off Insider Stock Tips, Land Deals, and Cronyism That Would Send the Rest of Us to Prison."

It speaks about the latest government shutdown and how well these shutdowns helps both parties raise money through lobbying, so that, in the long run, these fat cats that we have elected can keep their lifestyle while pretending to care about us.  Of course it doesn't help that I just saw the new Hunger Games Catching Fire.  That's  the irony, that the new tea party that we love to hate favors business and fiscal management above compassion, and is in a strange way correct about government insider abuse, while horribly wrong about what it is that government needs to do.  It still irks me that these United States of America, the champion of democracy, has one party that is making it harder to vote.
Just amazing.  If people would only wake up and open our eyes, we have so much more power than we know.
