Skip to comments.How to fool Boehner into NOT Impeaching Obama: Accuse Boehner of trying to Impeach Obama!
Posted on 07/29/2014 12:19:50 PM PDT by Graewoulf
All it takes for Obama to protect himself from Impeachment is to accuse Boehner of trying to Impeach him. Always a fool for reverse psychology traps, Boehner dutifully held a Presser today and said: "We have no plans to Impeach the president. We have no future plans. It is all a sham." BINGO! Obama's part-time Day Job is safe, because Boehner is really, Really, REALLY STUPID!
Speaker Blank Check Boehner has convinced most voters in the Public and US House of Representatives that NOTHING CAN BE DONE to punish B. Hussein Obama for violating the US Constitution unless he is removed from Office by the US Senate.
IOW, Speaker Boehner, by doing nothing, Boehner violates his unique Constitutional Duty to Control the Purse or Impeach Obama, and passes the buck to a Democrat-controlled US Senate that will never Remove Obama from Office.
Obama knows that as long as Boehner stays in as Speaker, then Obama has permission do whatever he wants to do, with no fear of punishment.
Boehner as Speaker is ESSENTIAL to permitting Obama to violate the US Constitution on a near daily basis.
Stupid and weak Boehner is, by far, The best Speaker of the House that the Democrat Party has ever had.
Removal from Office can only come from the US Senate, and ONLY if the US House Impeaches BEFORE the US Senate even considers whether or not to bring an Impeachment to the Floor of the US Senate.
BTW, stupid people are those people who are incapable of learning, and Speaker Boehner and all those who refuse to use the Checks and Balances found in the US Constitution are TRULY STUPID, especially the Republican Member supporters of Boehner as Speaker in the US House of Representatives.
Force Boehner to resign as Speaker, and THEN Impeach Obama with New House Speaker Louis Gomert, Jim Jordan or Trey Gowdy.
Do nothing, and US Voters may find no EFFECTIVE reason to vote for a do nothing Republican slate of Candidates in November, 2014.
BTW, BTW, just what is the difference between a do-nothing Republican Politician who always caves-in to his Democrat betters, and an Obama Democrat Politician?
This “Oh no they aren’t!” meme serves as a convenient distraction for the Democrats who are trying to shift the conversation AWAY from the IRS’ lies in the IRS scandal (”rogue agents in Cincy”, “we gave you everything”, “not a #SMIDGEN”, “dog ate my harddrive”, “we didn’t need to save the instant messages where we discussed stonewalling the investigation for emails”).
Too clever by half. Not a Boehner, but in no way do I want the GOP help make Obama into a political martyr! Boehner did the right thing.
Not defending Boehner in general, but there is virtually no upside to impeaching Obama, unless the level of outrage reached a point where democrats would convict him.
Impeaching a president is generally unpopular, especially when you can’t convict him so it will appear he “won”. Therefore the White House likes the idea as last ditch way to make Obama popular again.
Yes he deserves to be impeached, but he does not deserve it under circumstances where he wants it.
I don't see how Boehner "passes the buck" to the Senate, because the Senate cannot act to remove a President until the House passes articles of impeachment.
There is no buck to pass without impeachment.
Bre’re Rabbit: PLEASE DON”T THROW ME INTO THE BRIAR PATCH!
No, don't throw me in the briar patch!
These people are pretty desperate, Gingrich said. Nothing is working. And so they are looking for some fight that allows them to re-polarize the country in terms that help them in the election.
Continuing, Gingrich said: I think we ought to laugh at them and say if the best you can do after six years of the presidency is to yell impeachment and hope that you can raise money, it is a pretty pathetic presidency. And by the way, it is a pretty pathetic presidency.
Impeachment BEFORE the election is a big mistake. After, if you've got 67 a shoo in. If you don't have 67 its a gutsy call too far above Boehner's pay grade.
Bonehead had no intention of impeaching Obama
No he did not. Bad precedence are set for good reasons. Boehner has a habit of relinquishing his Constitutionally given powers to the law breakers, just so he will not be called names, like 'Racist'. Let's be frank, that's what it is about.
The right thing to do is keep it on the table unless you think the framers were wrong to give this power to the legislative branch.
The first thing Boehner did as speaker was surrender his powers from Article 1 of the Constitution, the powers of the purse strings, aka the Continuing Resolution.
Boehner is the absolute worst speaker at a time when we needed the best. It sure doesn't help that he has people with no will to fight supporting him either.
Obama isn’t going to be impeached, period.
It’s not some reverse-psychology or Jedi mind trick, it’s simple pragmatism.
Impeachment is not a legal proceeding but a political one, and therefore, the politics of the situation are extremely relevant; and the politics of impeachment in this case are really, really bad for the GOP.
No matter how bad he messes up nor how much anger and opposition to his actions and policies the public can be made to feel, the simple fact is that any attack on Obama himself is immediately met with a backlash. Some of this is cult of personality and some of it is the protection he gets by being the first black President.
Nor is history a favorable omen to the Republicans. This would be the second Democrat in a row they’d impeach, and that makes them look like pure partisans regardless of the merits of the impeachment case. Also, despite Clinton being obviously guilty of what he was accused of, it’s clear that Senate Democrats will not vote for conviction for any reason.
There’s only one possible outcome to all of this, and it’s to make Obama come off as a sympathetic (and exonerated) victim of an evil GOP conspiracy. The matter might be different if the cry for impeachment was raised and led by Democrats, but I’d expect flying pigs to go ice skating in hell before that happens.
as kids start dying from diseases brought in by 0failure, they’ll want more then to have him fired
So Boehner's best move is to wait for November and then, given Republicn control of the House and Senate ... go for obama's impeachment.
> there is virtually no upside to impeaching Obama,
Absolutely - When you strike at a king you must kill him.
Democrats are losing badly right now. Why would anyone want to gift-wrap a baseball bat to bludgeon the GOP with.
As long as the corrupt MSM has Obama’s back - and they do - just about anything you do will boomerang back. Better to be wise and gain control rather than go off and never gain control of the Senate.
it’s tough to say we’re a country of laws when they are regularly ignored by the top person responsible for enforcing them
we’re a country of cute guidelines that are inflicted on those not currently in favor with the press
What if America’s dictator were to step off a plane and be arrested by a US Marshall?
Until I see a clear path to impeaching Obama with Harry Reid as majority leader in the Senate I’ll stick to my position.
You are assuming that the voters will find an effective difference between a Cave-In Republican and an Obama Democrat, of course.
The most likely case is that the Democrats will keep the US Senate, and win back the US House.
If you doubt me, just count the Rep. and Senate Candidates that are NOT polling within the margin of error (3-4% +/-) from their opponents.
Boehner is essential to Obama, so Obama will continue to coach Boehner on the very best ways that Boehner can help Republicans lose another close election.
As mentioned above concerning Boehner’s Presser, Boehner is off to a great losing start for the Republicans.
Besides, what can Obama possibly do in the mere 5 weeks that Boehner and his House are on Vacation?
All Obama has is a “pen and a phone” - - - - .
I say they shouldn’t impeach him, but continually give the reasons he should be impeached, as well as the reason that it’s not feasible - the race issue.
Here I am assuming that the arresting US Marshal has searched Air Force One with a drug-sniffing dog.
That is what has been done for nigh onto 6 years now - - -.
How is that working out for you?
See my post at #22.
Can someone please explain how we can possible benefit from pushing impeachment now?
1. Harry Reid’s Senate will not convict Obama under any circumstances, even if he is found in bed with a live boy, a dead girl and half the US treasury in his private bank account.
2. It will not in any way humiliate Obama to be impeached. He and all of his supporters (including the lamestream media) would consider it a badge of honor for Obama to be impeached by a Republican controlled House.
3. Any talk of impeachment will fire up the Democrat base for the 2014 election and when combined with the dead people and illegal alien vote already in the bag could easily mean the difference between a Republican controlled Senate next year or at least 2 more years of a Democrat controlled Senate.
4. The Democrats are already fund raising based on talk of impeachment. That is why most of the talk of impeachment is coming from Democrats.
If the Republicans retake the Senate next year and you want to talk about impeachment then, I still think it would hurt us politically in the 2016 elections (look how the Clinton impeachment turned out), but it is arguable.
If the Democrats hold the Senate next year, our nation is pretty much finished. We will have two more years of far left wing Obama judicial appointments sailing unimpeded through the Senate, all of whom be legislating from the bench for the next 30 years.
In 2016, we need to elect a conservative President, hold onto the House and Senate, and replace as many RINOs as we can with conservatives. That is the path to retaking the country. Anything else will result in more Obamanation.
Ugh, random capitalization disease.
If we had any decent generals in the top they would have court martialed the “Commander in Chief” for derelictrion of duty for what happened on Sept 11, 2012...
I hope you mean that you should have enough support for a conviction in the senate ahead of impeaching him...
[ Boehner did the right thing.
He absolutely did NOT! He tossed aside the ONE implement given to We-The-People to deal with such illegalities as this President has done/is doing/will continue to to until stopped!
So, Obadiah, what will stop this Administration’s rampage NOW? ]
Bone head won’t even defund Obama in the house, no way in hell the weasel would even consider impeaching obama...
[ In 2016, we need to elect a conservative President, hold onto the House and Senate, and replace as many RINOs as we can with conservatives.
We NEED not to have this Administration in power until 2016.
You don’t see the danger we are in TODAY or you wouldn’t have posted the politically-minded post you did. ]
I think we are in a situation of being damned if we do and doamned if we don’t. But i DO think if we are to go down, we should go down fighting so to speak.
I agree. If it happens now, it’s a political victory for the left, especially since it can’t go anywhere with reid in charge of the senate. All it will do at this point is incite their base, and lead to possible defeat in November.
But impeachment is a political process. Of course you have to take the support of the people into consideration.
I don't know why you think impeachment is a "remedy" at this point. What exactly would it fix?
Now that we are on the point of retaking the Senate you think we are "going down"?
Your position is all emotion and illogical. The votes are not there at this time. And trying to take impeachment forward now only plays into the Dems hands and the media which they own, if you hand’t noticed. The result will be blowing the shot at retaking the Senate and getting rid of Reid. Do you realize how important that is for as a first step? The House is not dealing from a position of strength in the current landscape.
Sometimes, Boehnhead, it’s hard to taqqiya seriously.
The Senate cannot Impeach
This President has done both, and to take Impeachment off the table is for weak fools who deserve more than they are getting.
Never take your constitutionally given powers off the table...NEVER!
I fully see the danger we are in TODAY. I just don't want to take the liberal approach of doing something just to feel like you are doing something even though it makes the situation worse.
Again, tell me how attempting to impeach Obama will improve anything?
