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?
