Skip to comments.We do NOT have to wit till 2013! (Vanity)
Posted on 02/07/2010 3:50:09 PM PST by USALiberty
Has it occurred to anyone else that we are NOT stuck with the Kenyan Usurper and Comrade Biden till 2013?
WHEN we take Congress in the fall, we have plenty of cause to impeach and remove (perhaps imprison?) both Barry and Joe. That would make John Boehner our president as early as next February.
Boehner is a bit RINO-ish for my taste. But he would be a LOT better than the current Marxist/jihadist-in-chief.
After Boehner is installed, nothing would keep us from working to nominate Palin in 2012, who could then serve a full eight years after Boehner lays the foundation.
I think we should begin seriously start talking up this "take it all back" option. The fate of the nation is at stake. We should not be afraid to be BOLD.
OOPS... make that WAIT till 2013!
That would make Pelosi president, are you nuts?
We can’t imprison Joe!
Having a Dem President to blame for the calamities that will certainly befall us over the next few years is a strategic advantage that should not be relinquished without strong cause.
Ohh, next fall, nevermind.
Yes, USALiberty is probably nuts, but following the premise of Republicans taking back the House first, Nancy will no longer be in line (even if she’s still in Congress).
The downside is that removing a President, VP, etc. simply because we hold a supermajority in both houses (which is what it takes to convict) would give us a Parliamentary System for a period of time. It might prove popular. One amendment would be needed to reduce the Executive Branch to a ceremonial Presidency.
It would also almost ensure that our own President Palin would be marched away whenever next the Democrats had the majority—and bring us a few leaps closer to the governance level of an African nation.
Your senario would be great. Do you honestly think you’ll retain all GOP senate seats up this time and gain 16 from the democrats to give a 2/3rds majority necessary to convict on impeachment? I don’t see that large of a gain being made.
Put down the mouse and slowly back away...
You vastly underestimate the ability of the Republican Party to screw up, even if they were the ruling ... pardon me, ... governing party in Heaven.
I don’t see what Biden has done as an impeachable offense.
If we manage to get Obama out (and majority or not, I highly doubt they will impeach him. They don’t have the cajones), Biden will become President.
Obama Impeachment Insurance..Biden and Pelosi.
It is no crime being an idiot and Biden is their king. Obama on the other hand could very well be tossed out. I would love it if a strongly conservative republican congress aggressively went after the original birth certificate.
Impeach him and you make him the victim. Let him sit there and take all the scorn he deserves.
Impeachment is NOT going to happen. Unless the Democrats start it.
Recall that, while it takes a majority of the House to impeach, it takes 2/3 of the Senate to convict.
Even if the GOP regains a Senate majority in 2010, there is no way it gains a 2/3 majority.
And, as the Democrats conclusively proved in 1999, they won't vote to convict a Democrat President -- even if they know he's guilty (and they certainly did, Robert Byrd admitted it).
Forget this impeachment crap. It's a wet dream.
You are a scheisskopf.
Nancy will not be speaker of the house after the elections of 2010. I agree almost anyone would be better than Obama as President: Hillary. Newt G. Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, etc...
Who would be worse? Robert Kennedy Jr., Davis Duke, Oprah,
Danny Glover, Keith Obermann, etc...
If the elections are a disaster for the democrats, it’s a safe bed that the democrats will get rid of Nancy as Speaker. She will take the fall!
Obama could pull out a pistol and shoot the Chief Justice and the GOP would not vote to impeach him. Been there, done that.
If they had enough backbone to impeach they would have won the last election.
USALiberty! I want what you’re smoking. If it were only that simple.
Just want a GOP held congress and senate after 2010—we can block the BOZerO from most major screw ups. Then we dump him in 2012.
I’ll settle for neutering the sob.
Impeachment will never happen. Even if it did, we would have a real and bloody civil war/race riot on our hands. The cities would explode in anger.
Take a pill and regroup. Silly thoughts like this take away any credibility conservatives are working to reestablish.
Some of us country folks have an old saying, “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.”
That said, it’s a pipedream that: (1) The Republicans will capture a supermajority this November. Republicans haven’t had a supermajority in over a century, and the gerrymandering of disctricts gaurantees that they will never capture one again without massive election reform and a return to Constitutional principles; (2) That the Republicans would have either the brains or the guts to attempt impeachment even IF they had a supermajority.
You also assume that “WE” will get back control of Congress. I think it’s likely Republicans will regain control of the House (barely), much less likely they will control the Senate. I figure they will go from the current 41 seats to 48, maybe 49 at best. With the divide that close, I look for the Media to demand — and for the Democrats to “suggest” that the Republicans be “nice,” share power, etc...and I expect the Republicans to do just that — in a spirit of “bipartisanship.” Remember, there will still be plenty of McCainiac-types in the Republican ranks.
Attempting to impeach Obama, at least as matters currently stand, probably wouldn’t be the smartest strategy anyway. It would likely actually build sympathy for him — as it did with Clinton.
Ya gotta think these things thru folks!
Gee, I thought the GOP House voted to impeach Clinton. And that they gained a majority of the Senate...but failed to get the 2/3 vote they needed because the Democrats, even knowing Clinton was guilty, wouldn't vote to convict.
So, how is it the Republicans failed you, brother?
Maybe you have a point. Do we really need a wit before 2013? [I hate teepos.]
FRiend, a party that’s too cowardly to make a big issue out of this certainly doesn’t have the wit:
Another Pardon, Another Controversy
Hugh Rodham [Hillary’s brother] received a contingency fee in connection with a pardon ... a scheme to distribute 800 pounds of crack cocaine
Imagine if Bush had pardoned a crack dealer for cash. How quiet would the DNC and the Drive-bys have been about it? The RNC is so issues-focused, they are obsessed about giving the DNC cover. Its apparently been that way ever since Joe MacArthy. Conservative leaders have always held their punches. They rationalize away their fear.
Now for the nitty-gritty.

“New Coach” Comparison:
Such a question to remain festering is inexcusable in a leader. A team sees some guy walking into the locker room claiming to be their new coach. How much should they trust him? Is it their fault if they wonder?
The coach says, “I was sent here by the other team.” [Annenberg vetting Obama]. Such ‘leadership’.

WHY DOESN’T HE JUST SHOW US HIS FRIGGING BIRTH CERTIFICATE? What kind of goofball would rather spend 1.5 million? Or does he WANT discord in the military? Is this LEADERSHIP?
There are too many snarky “dignity freaks” who are more worried about their image than the truth. They fear ridicule. They calculate. And they will never get along with hardworking conservative muckrakers.
Not knowing it, the sarcastic “Dignity Mossad” is like a coward in the foxhole who stabs his buddy in the back and surrenders. Either that, or he’s a hideous combination of mental laziness and self righteous judgmentality.
Maelstorm: “There is no need for Glenn Beck, Breitbart, or anyone to defend a President who refuses to release his education records, his medical records, and yes he still hasnt released a long form birth certificate.”
CaptainK: “All jobs require detailed information about your past. Why should the most important job in the nation get a pass?”
President Biden? LOL!
He was selected as insurance against BHO being impeached.
It is not possible to impeach and impostor since he isn't a president he is a fraud.
So?...All a Republican majority needs to do is to legally request he records.
Oh yes, that impeachment thing worked out so well for us even when we had an actual crime to work with.
What do you plan to specify as the “crime” beyond philosophical disagreements?
Great job of typing, considering you are probably wearing a straitjacket.
LOL! Post of the year!
It would have to be serious chages for another Prez to be impeached. The Clinton impeachment was a farce. No one in their right mind would attempt it again without the backing of the American people.
WOW, you win for “tagline of the year.”
(Like the Ft Hood Killer, James Earl Ray was just stressed when he killed MLK Jr.)
The house cannot impeach Obama w/o evidence of high crimes & misdemeanors. Incompetence is not a crime.
In the Senate, two thirds (67) votes are required to convict.
The same process applies to Biden, & each impeachment & trial could take months.
If the Pubs retake the House and/or the Senate, I want to see them focused on the economy, not impeaching Obama. A severely weakened Obama & his Rats can be far more useful in this effort, rather than wasting time on an obviously partisan impeachment effort. An Impeachment attempt will enrage, energize, & unify the Left, just after they suffer a beat-down. And it might convince much of America that the Pubs are just as partisan & arrogant as the Rats.
I do not share your confidence, nor do I think impeachment would be good for this country.
Right On, however, this is not primarily to be nice - No, the "Two-Party Cartel" owned by the elites, WILL tell these yahoos what to do & when to do it.
Which would require two election cycles to gain enough senators. That would make impeachment viable only between January 3, 2013 and January 20, 2013. The only advantage to impeaching President Obama at that point would be to prevent him from ever holding any federal office again. If we had that kind of senate majority, I'd rather have Congress impeach all the "czars", Attorney General Holder, and several other underlings in the Obama administration. If a rider were attached to the bills of impeachment, those office holders could be permanently barred from any future federal office.
It would beat the current half-wit.
But I don’t want to ‘beat’. I want to dismantle criminal organizations.
