Your loyal words will make John Boehner and Mitch McConnell very proud to be the leaders of the Congressional RINO Establishment.
I read the statement above and went back and re-read my post to see if perhaps you meant to send it to someone else. I loathe Boehner and McConnell and the use of loyal confused me. So many people want Obama impeached without regard as to whether the tactic might backfire, as it did with Clinton, or simply fail thus using up precious political capital that could be used for other purposes. Impeachment with the Senates present or likely demographics is the equivalent of a suicide charge against a well-entrenched and well-manned position. There are better and more effective ways to use your troops. Otto Von Bismarck allegedly said that politics is the art of the possible. Principled Republicans voted with Democrats to impeach Nixon. Without their votes that wouldnt have happened. But what five to twenty principled Democrats would vote to impeach Obama and remove him from office? (Sixty-seven votes required of which many Republicans would abstain or vote no.) It is alleged that Daniel Patrick Moynihan was the last principled Democrat. That may be, but the quote I remember from him was, Politics is all about who gets how much and when. In short theres no such thing as a principled Democrat. They are all communists down to their bones. The only way theyd vote for impeachment is to save their own skins.
Even if Republicans win all sixteen Democratic Senate seats in play in 2014 and lose none of their own an impeachment or even overriding a presidential veto is unlikely. But there are numerous other tactics that can be used to nullify the man. We need to concentrate on taking state houses and building a base for 2016. And, in 2016 the GOP will again attempt to force a McCain or Romney on us. If the principled Republicans we do have use up all of their political capital forcing a doomed issue then they wont be available to influence the GOP to back somebody wed actually want to vote for.
Ditto GB’s words. I appreciate your enthusiasm and sincerity, but being grounded in reality is what generates victories. We’re not going to turn things around in one fell swoop. It will take a generation of thoughtful, effective leadership and legislation to cut the various Gordian Knots tying America to her socialist, big government programs.
