The idea of impeaching Obama is industrial-strength insane. Republicans will probably try anyway, predicts Michael Tomasky.
When the histories of this administration are written, I hope fervently that last Friday, May 10, does not figure prominently in them. But I fear that it might: the double-barrel revelations that the White House hasnt quite been telling the whole story on Benghazi and that some mid-level IRS people targeted some Tea Party groups for scrutiny are guaranteed to ramp up the crazy. But to what extent? I fear it could be considerable, and the people in the White House damn well better fear the same, or were going to be contemplating an extremely ugly situation come 2015, especially if the Republicans have held the House and captured the Senate in the by-elections.
Let me clarify a point thats been going around. On MSNBC Friday, I broached the I-word. You know the one. Three syllables. Links Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton. I said something like: I have little doubt the Republicans would try to pursue itsomething Ive written dozens of times without readers really batting an eye. But I guess saying it on TV, and on a fateful day, is different. I was on the business end of a small number of angry tweets from liberal readers....

It wouldn’t be insane if we didn’t have a senate full of insane people.
Monkeys will fly out of my arse before Odinga ever sees justice.
And you know it.
And everyone here knows it.
H! will pay for the death of Vince first.
Just keep him tied up in hearings for the next 3.5 years.
Never get past the dem senate, Exercise in futility.
Lets all band together and build a mile high statue of him.
liberals only want harsh justice for non-liberals. the people they agree with they make apologies for and downplay the severity of what’s been done. anything they can find on enemies is turned into a huge deal.
liberal hypocrites. economy. worst ever under bush. now, with gas double, 47 million record foodstamp users, obama forcing everyone to buy insurance under threat of fines and jail, covering up a far larger deal than nixon or clinton, where four people including a us ambassador and jailing a filmmaker who had nothing to do withit, and is still in jail now, and making every attempt to ut the 2nd amendment,
and it’s just republicans “politicizing” things.
All they understand and care about is political power.
When reality finally catches up to them they will be the most surprised people to have ever walked the earth.
You make an excellent point. Certainly need to keep the heat on for another year and a half and see if there are enough patriots left in the country to keep the House and take back the Senate. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are doing a great job. They need to be out front to be the voice of the senate and if so, it can be done.
Not enough attention is getting on the MANPADS smuggling —THAT was what the (looted) warehouse was for, at The Farm. For how many years will airport shoe removal now be irrelevant?
With THOUSANDS of MANPADS now floating around the AQ blackmarket, what sane jihadi will blow himself up aboard an airliner? They won’t have to —they’ll just point and click.
Will we continue taking our shoes off until we get dazzlers and flare dispensers on civil aircraft?
And why won’t the media talk about how Obama refused to go 2 Dover 2c the bodies —he was STILL in campaign mode even AFTER the killings, so they were flown to Andrews in order to save time time for campaigning.
Why aren’t they discussing those 2 things?
Unfortunately, we do have a senate full of insane people. It's to our advantage to mention "impeachment" early and often, but only i the context of "we're not looking for impeachment, just for a full explanation". We want the Obama administration crippled so they cannot do any more damage. We want them tied up so they are so busy saving their own necks that they will allow ObamaCare to be defunded. We want them discredited and in hiding so they will not be out there campaigning for Hillary. We don't want to try for the impossible. As wonderful as it would be to remove that evil communist from office, and replace him with the dunce from Delaware, it's not going to happen.
“Just keep him tied up in hearings for the next 3.5 years”
You really expect him to interrupt his “lifestyles of the Rich and Imposters” routine to show up for congressional testimony?.....that’s the stuff legitimate presidents do.
Here’s a point for consideration. Maybe somebody could correct me if I’m wrong but in the past 40-50 years I’m thinking each and every presidential administration has had to shove cabinet level people and high level administration people overboard due to one scandal or another. I’m thinking the number in the usurper’s administration is exactly 0. Isn’t this more or less unprecedented in modern history? Sure there was the usual shakeup after the first term at state, defense etc. but this is not the same as individuals being forced out and forced under the bus. I’d like to see at least some heads start to roll like if memory serves has happened each and every other time.
Michael Tomasky writing about Michael Tomasky's prediction.
Like the moron who fires his weapon straight up into the air Obama will not escape the inevitable results of his policies. What is coming is a matter of physics.
We want them exposed and we want to force democrats to accept the reality they desperately fear.
ditto, the only way this guy gets impeached is if he try to pardons people going down for criminal charges
Worse then impeachment. Defund his gas allowance for AF1. Keep him captive in WH with no visitors No trips ;-)
If he doesn’t deserve it, no one does!!
Impeachment would be a stupid move, and I do not think it will happen.
Our goal needs to be putting cogs in the wheels of Hussein’s stupidity...and finding a way to keep Hitlery out of power....because full blown media worship of that will replace the Obama cult....
Sad but true.
The msm and his “protectors” will never let any tie to any scandal lead back to The Won. (or Hillary)
Some lower level pol will pay the price for any scandal.
“...guaranteed to ramp up the crazy”
The “crazy” is on the commie-dem side, bub...conservatives can be patient enough to let Bath-House hang himself—seems he’s doing a fine job of it so far.
What has transpired this past week puts a little lift in my step. I’m going to enjoy watching the whole thing come unraveled.
Hold enough hearings to cut into the Family’s vacation and golf time.
“would make a racial martyr”
That is also true. When the Dems played hardball and got the big O in the White House it was a “checkmate” moment.
No you got it wrong, “We got a Senate full of DEVILS, and their leader is OBAMA!”
Really? A good prediction but gun control didn’t get out of the senate...
Maybe there’s a chance?
“We don’t need to impeach him.
Just keep him tied up in hearings for the next 3.5 years.”
This is a much better plan. I’m fairly certain that every single thing he and the administration does for the duration will receive increased (well, a lot more than no, anyway) scrutiny from the media. 2014 election results will probably slam the door on any more crazy initiatives and will probably result in rollbacks.
Also, with three years left and an uncertain 2016 future ahead of them, I suspect that a lot of the mid-level wonks are going to be on their best behavior. The job market is STILL likely to be tough then.
Is rhis actually a word?
5 paragraphs down. fourth line.
“Republicans do their bases bidding, not Americas”
Excuse me, aren’t they supposed to do their constituents bidding? They aren’t supposed to all be the same—it is supposed to be representative gov’t, isn’t it?
Piss off enough people before 2014 and there may be a Republican Senate.
” Keep him captive in WH with no visitors No trips.”
Wouldn’t that be wonderful? He’d go insane.
(add no taxpayer funded Wednesday night parties anymore, too, and you’ll have him climbing the walls.)
Joe would be an improvement. He isn’t a muslim, he isn’t a Marxist, he isn’t beholden to the Saudis and he isn’t behold to Soros and God only know who else.
How about we demand O’ resignation?
The Coming Attempt to Impeach Obama
No doubt about it, republicans are delusional..
The only ones to attempt that are the idiotic absurd..
The ones that have not come to grips of just HOW in charge this scissor-bill is..
HE OWNS the FBI, the IRS, the CIA, The NSA, the whole friggen military.. most of Congress, a big part of the Supremes, all administrations of academia, most network news organizations, HollyWeird, San Fransicko, most all of Mexifornia, Oregon and Washington State.. the North East is BArry Half-White territory, Minnesota is high on the vapors of Lutefisk (USELESS)... those in Chicago are as crazy are vampire bats, and flying horned black Unicorns are coming out of the asses of all citizens of Washington D.C...
Did I mention he OWNS the voter fraud cabal.. and likely is franchising it.. and gives federal bene’s to the most successful..
The only way to get of Obama and his “minions” is to cut off their cold dead hands from federal power.. but that would take a meat ax.. (and a 45 cal.) Republicans only have scalpels..
What about the democrats?.. Well the democrats are in “LUV”... You know with FREE stuff..
They are drones in Borg collective.. Obama-Termites..
Let Barrack be the rotten apple that ruins the Dem’s barrel.
At least Caligula had the right idea regarding the Senate.
Will the Democrats ask Obama to resign? In a minute if he is hurting the party too much. Nobody has to impeach Obama. All you have to do is tie all of his problems to the party. He’ll come down with Mogo On The Gagogo and have to spend time with Michelle and the kids. He’s accomplished all the big stuff. My guess is he won’t live in the US after he’s done being President.
to impeach Obama would take republican help and everyone knows they don’t have the stones!
Noteworthy, potentially troubling for the reasons you mentioned, but not all that frightening to obama personally.
He should be, and likely is, far more worried about what his side will do to him if he becomes too big of a liability and/or threat. He was brought to life and lives by that sword.
Add me to your KMA list, defeatist!
Cut funding of secret service golf outing extra food budgets to entertain guests or any extra curricular activities. He’s only in it for the parties and so isl position He would resign within a month
Probably probably that’s a lot of probablys. Gotta take him out if the chance comes - impeachment is now on the radar. Zero in and GOP and patriotic dems, get the job done before he goes insane and starts a major global conflict in an attempt to reset things for him or his muzzie butt buddies.
The DEMs will shout ‘impeachment’ as loud and as often as then can to put the REPs on the defense. Making the REPs look like they are over reacting is how the DEMs will attempt to minimize this.
Yep, it will be fun watching the wounded, bleeding, feckless Islamo-Commie narcissist try to remain "one of the most interesting people in the world" after this.
Definitely a real word.
Whose version of the events at Benghazi are we to believe? Obama’s? Or that of the whistleblowers and survivors on the ground?
Theirs, of course.
