Title: Boozy McOrangeface says...
Post by: Hoss on July 29, 2014, 09:02:41 pm
...that all this talk of impeachment is a scam and there are no plans to impeach the President.  He thinks it's a plot by the Democrats.

Wow.  He's been inhaling the bronzer I think.  No wonder Congressional popularity numbers are in the single digits.

For a soundbite to be played over and over on conservative sites and shows.

Impeachment on what grounds? And do they remember the Senate is controlled by Democrats?

We need a new phrase; Dumber than a congressman.

The impeachment nonsense is what it is: nonsense. I am already sick of hearing about it.

I posted this over on FB with a link to one of the "sue the president" stories. Feel free to hack at it and call me names. I gotta take the dog for a walk in the rain:

For once this isn't from the Onion. House Republicans voted to sue the President because he's given businesses more time to comply with the provisions of Obamacare. Yes, that same Obamacare that those same Republicans have tried to repeal over forty times at last count.

Meanwhile, those same Republicans are complaining loudly about the influx of children coming across our borders, and they demand the President deport them more rapidly. But the President is following the law passed in the Bush era that says those children cannot be released without a hearing and must be released only to a relative or other responsible party. Perhaps to no one's surprise, many of those House Republicans voted for this proposal back in 2007.

Have the Republicans gone barking mad?

Because even as dim as he is, he does remember some little bit of history - the last time they tried this nonsense, it cost them 5 seats in the House.  And cost him the Speakership for 10 years or so....

Guido... This is what the article you linked to says:

Quote
House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday that Republicans have no plans to impeach President Obama, and that all the impeachment talk was driven by Democrats hoping to stir up their base.

Boehnerís statement isnít literally true: There have been mentions of impeachment around the edges of the GOP and by some Republican members of Congress. But on the whole, Democrats are spending a lot more time talking about impeachment than Republicans.

So it isn't literally true... But that he means part of the Republican Party IS taking about impeaching Obama.  But figuratively, it is true because Democrats are using a stupid idea or their advasaries to score political points?  Ergo, if the Democrats point out a dumb move by the Republicans,  then its a Democratic idea and setup.

Just like Andrew Jackson the great peacemaker.  Native Americans love him because after murdering or forcibly removing all natives east of the Mississippi, the Eastern tribes had no Indian Wars.  So, while it was Jacksons idea, it really wasn't because in hindsight the Indians should have wanted it.

Really, its a lot like legitimate rape...

/really?

Careful there...you CAN get pregnant from legitimate rape...but you can't from illegitimate rape!!   Or is it the other way around....I forgot....


I really like your comment - just letting you know....I'm gonna use it!!

I doubt there is much love for Andrew Jackson within the tribes. I know some who won't even carry a bill with his likeness on it.

No idea why we have his face on a bill.  Reward for genocide well done, I guess.....

A resolution is not a bill....goes to the intent versus the word....


http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-110hres1258ih/pdf/BILLS-110hres1258ih.pdf


If Obama should be impeached, then Bush should be impeached 4,000 + times - one for each of our kids he got killed for his own self-gratification.

I wouldn't have a problem with all the above....well, except for maybe the whole "rule of law" thing that tends to get in the way of what I would like to see happen....

That response is about the dumbest.... YOU are the one who can do better.  And yet choose not to...  Perhaps if you actually answered a question - without the sound bites???

Actually, it is quite profound!  It goes to the psychotic histrionics the RWRE is going through just to try to do/say anything about Obama - regardless of truth, justice, or validity.  There is plenty of stuff to go after him over, but these contrived, BS, nonsensical topics - that have been done by previous regimes, almost to orders of magnitude more, are at best disingenuous....if wearing rose colored glasses, and in reality are just outright despicable.  It IS the hijacked Republicontin party.  Yeah, Dems do bad stuff, too...the Republicans just do it so much better and more often!

Tell me about the relative morality involved that gives a pass to lies leading to killing of 4,000 kids, while going psychotic about a lie about a little hanky-panky between consenting adults??   If the names Clinton and Bush were not attached, exactly which lie would you consider to the bigger moral issue?  Or are all lies the same...?

Tell me about how Benghazi, killing 4, where all the personnel were literally outside the reach of assistance for hours is somehow worse than the same type events killing 32+ in embassy personnel during Baby Bush regime? 

Tell me how reducing deficits every year - down to about $400 billion this year - since taking office is SOOO much worse than increasing deficits every year - culminating in a $1.9 trillion increase in
debt during his last year in office?

Nevermind. Going off on the RWRE, "baby Bush", and "Republicontin" REALLY legitimizes your point. And for that, you get this:

Reality really gets to you doesn't it...??  

Shouldn't 'telegraph' so much....might accidentally do that in court sometime and the opposition will close in for the "kill"....

So, that's the expression you use, huh?  Well, we need to get together sometime and take a ride in your van!  Don't Bogart that.....
