Obama is driving the country to ruin

By Michael Goodwin

If you think of the United States of America as a store, its recent decisions and scandals resemble a sale, perhaps a fire sale. Or maybe even a “Going Out of Business” sale. The list of dramatic markdowns is breathtaking. They include trading away five murderous terrorists for a likely Army deserter, an open invitation to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to cross the Mexican border, and a decision to recognize the terrorist group Hamas as part of the Palestinian government. On the home front, environmental regulations will cost thousands of coal miners their jobs and drive up the cost of electricity for millions. The ObamaCare mess is hardly resolved, and the Veterans Affairs scandal keeps getting worse. The acting agency head reported the deaths of 18 more vets who were kept off the official waiting list in Phoenix.

What does this guy have to do to get impeached? Hold a press conference to verbally announce he is declaring war against the United States? Somehow I think if he did Repubs would still hide under their desks. This is unbelievable. To call this guy the worst President in this nations history doesn't even begin to describe what an absolute disaster from hell he is. We got 2.5 more YEARS of this!!

There is NO accountability because the EXEMPT Congress
was REWARDED with EXEMPTION from ObamaCARE/DeathCARE
and EXEMPTION from all laws and
EXEMPTION from SEC rules.

“What does this guy have to do to get impeached?”

To get removed from office, not just impeached, but removed, he will have to convince a majority of Democrats that his continuation in the presidency will severely damage their chances of reelection. When Democrats draft the articles of impeachment, then and only then will he be removed. (Note, that neither Andrew Johnson or Bill Clinton were removed. Nixon actually quit. But I think Nixon had more respect for America in his pinky than Obama has in his entire body and the bodies of the six next highest ranking Democrats.)

As far as convincing Democrats, someone said of Nancy Pelosi, “her views do not represent the views of Americans in general. However, they do represent the views of her constituents.” So, to convince Democrats under these conditions will be effectively impossible.

True that. With few exceptions, Republicans are spineless jellyfish that float with the current. They claim to honor Reagan but its really just exploitation of his image to further their own personal political ambitions.

Republicans by and large have no interest in supporting conservatism or defending the principles this country was founded on.

The Republicans wouldn’t hold the House today if not for the Tea Party, whom they’ve relentlessly and systematically
worked to marginalize.

That list under Obama is just the bare tip of the iceberg. If you stated everything it would take up this page and the next.

Impeachment will never happen. Being the Affirmative Action president, he’s immune from that type of action.

An alternative to impeachment, however, would be a bipartisan delegation of senior legislators telling Obama he has lost their support. This could conceiveably happen if the scandals continue, the economy tanks, and the Dems take a severe beating in November. But I wouldn’t hold my breath.

“What does this guy have to do to get impeached? “

Lose the Senate in 2014. Only way. Impeachment is easy. Removing him from office is an entirely different subject.

As much as we want an ideological change in the republican party to represent the conservative position 100%, which will not happen in 2014, having a republican majority enables conservatives to bring bills to the forefront. Those republicans who vote against get a big target on their back.

I got into a terrible argument with my brother in 2008 where I told him I thought his praises of BHO were the dumbest things I’d ever heard come out of his mouth.

Unfortunately, I turned out to be right.

Obama just chanelling Sir Winston Churchill....

He must have read Churchill's strategic directives to the war cabinet...

1. Destroy means of production of petroleum

2. Destroy means of production and distribution of electricity starting with bombing coal mines

3. Destroy manufacturing capacity starting with ball bearing factories

4. Terrorize the civilian population.

BHO is not being impeached, because the democrats do not want their cities burned down, and the Republicans are afraid of being called racist.

We taxpayers are paying for the lawless president and the spineless politicians, who are taking us all to ruin.

Sounds like my relatives as well. Because he was black and spoke well that was enough qualifications for them. Of course they regret it now, especially my Aunt who incredibly voted for this fool twice no matter what I said to her. The problem I think is too many people in this country are like her, they think voting for a POTUS or a Rep is like voting for a High school Homecoming King and Queen, they can’t get see over this cult of personality crap and look into the substance. My Aunt is like a slave to the media, if the media promotes something enough she will go and do it which is why I absolutely detest the press when it comes to politics. They are completely bias which is why this idiot was elected in the first place. They pushed him down the publics throat non-stop like he was the second coming of Jesus when in fact he was the spawn of Satan, and over a war hero no less.

Honestly, I doubt cities would burn over Obama’s impeachment. The only supporters he's got left are self-hating, white, die-hard, liberals.

If and when the power-mongers who brought him forth decide he has become a liability to their agenda, he will have a heart atack a la Breitbart. Then there will be a big worshipful gathering celebrating all things liberal and everything that is a liability will be covered by his sainthood. His memory would be more sacred than Kennedy, King, Che, Mandela and all the rest of the liberal saints combined.

If he is arrested/impeached, there will be a huge rift with blacks that will take a century or more to heal.

In any case, he is hard to be rid of. I pray for it constantly, but it is hard to be rid of him.

That is true. I am friends with a lot of blacks and they can’t stand this idiot, call him a backstabber and a con man which is exactly what he is. Rich white liberals are all he has left, punk asses like George Clooney who actually got into a fight with Steve Wynn because Wynn had the audacity to insult “The Dear Leader”. All these Hollywood punks who pushed him relentlessly, Clooney, Sarah Jessica Horseface, Eva Longoria, none of them will ever see one cent from me. Anything even remotely related to them I will not see. My girlfriend last year wanted to go see that movie “Gravity”. I asked who was in it? She said Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. We saw a different movie that night.

I haven't been to a movie in years. I refuse to support the liberal, homo, pedophile culture. In reality though, you and I are supporting them because of all the tax breaks big Hollywood gets from the States under the guise of ‘job creation’. On top of that, Fedzilla pitches in, as well..

Snip:

The Senate Finance Committee passed a bill Thursday with about 50 of these tax cuts, credits or special deductions, including a two-year extension of so-called Chapter 181 provision. This tax code provision allows moviemakers to deduct up to $15 million of their production costs in the same year in which they incur those costs, rather than spread out the deduction over five years. To do so, at least 75 percent of the filming must be done in the United States.

Studios can write off even more, up to $20 million a year, if they spent that money filming in economically distressed areas. Cleveland qualifies as economically distressed.

The federal tax break comes atop any tax credits offered by the state. Ohio gave $9.5 million in motion picture tax credits to Captain America's makers.

Captain America, Hollywood, Indebted Homeowners

Yours is an interesting point. I live in Knoxville, TN and have had a large red and white “Impeach Obama” bumper sticker on my SUV for about a year now, in which time I’ve driven it to Houston, TX and parked it in many pots in areas frequented by both black and white people. I’ve received a number of compliments for the sticker any my vehicle hasn’t been vandalized once, even though it’s a 2010 navigator, definitely a fat old white man’s vehicle.

Switch his party registration to republican. Its the only way Reid will allow impeachment proceedings to go through the senate.

You are probably correct. Then it’s time for the democrats to walk BHO out of the WH.

If we got Hillary next it would be like dropping a nuke on the Titanic as it’s sinking. I can’t believe people would be so suicidal as to vote for that thing, but then again I have my doubts how legit the election process is in this country .

The Republican Party is never going to get the support of the limousine liberals or the true socialists. I do think the college professors and students could be won over as well as the inner city voters.
The inner city voters have to be convinced that it is in their best economic interests to vote for Republicans. That can be done. The college professors and students have to be shown that their noble Democrat Party is actually a syndicate of thieves. That can be done.
The leaders of the Republican Party can tell you how many votes they can get on each block, but they don’t know how to convince Democrat voters to switch.

For Obama to be removed from office we would have to have a revolution or Military coup like in the move “5 days in May”.
There are no real leaders in the military above the rank of Col.

I saw a recent Gallup poll showing 87% support from blacks. That is down a little but not nearly enough. Low-info voters will be the death of America.

People are apathetic to politics and in reality, I believe it's because the politicians want it that way. Politicians could do a lot more to engage and inform their constituents which in turn would eliminate the low information voter....IMHO, they only want them engaged at election time and on April 15. Aside from that, we can rot. Our money, our children to the military and our votes, that's all they want.
