View Full Version : The GOP’s Backdoor Impeachment Scheme

Republicans have lost at the ballot box and the Supreme Court ...
... so they’ve decided to nullify President Obama another way:

Keep his government from working, period

The dance over the debt ceiling and the fight over the government shutdown are nothing less than impeachment on the cheap: a chance to negate the will of the majority by ostensibly placating the letter of the law. Unable to win the last two presidential elections or to persuade a Supreme Court majority that the Affordable Care Act was unconstitutional, House Republicans have arrived at a point where default and closure are the next best things. This combustible brew of race, class, and economic anxieties bubbles all too closely to the surface.

These days, the GOP comes across as hating Obamacare more than loving their countrymen, and the nation is returning that ire (PDF). Less than a quarter of Americans view the Republicans favorably, and a majority dislikes them, three-in-10 intensely. The GOP’s goal of recapturing the Senate in 2014 is now looking more like a dream than a reality, as Republicans are “forced to explain why they are not to blame and why Americans should trust them to govern both houses of Congress when the one they do run is in such disarray.” Indeed.

Unfortunately, the calamity of a potential default has tempered neither judgment nor passion. On Saturday, Ted Cruz—the man who lit the match, won the Values Voters Straw Poll with 42 percent of the vote. Channeling her inner Glenn Beck, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) concluded that the President “committed impeachable offenses.” Bachmann also proclaimed that civil disobedience was a potential response to Obama’s “thuggery,” and compared the Obama presidency to Egypt’s deposed Muslim Brotherhood.

Political pundit and former Nixon and Reagan White House speechwriter Pat Buchanan may well have captured the mood of the Republican base, as he the writes of the spirit of secession sweeping the red states. Unfortunately, Buchanan is not engaging in idle hyperbole or in simple wishful thinking.

Even before the 2012 election, fuses were running short. Texas Governor Rick Perry mused about the possibility of secession, and after Mitt Romney’s loss last November more than 125,000 Texans petitioned the White House to secede. Secession also touchéd nerves in a slew of other states, including Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The spirit of the Civil War endures.

It all comes down to one thing ... some people in this country can't handle getting beat by one Black Man ... Period

On inauguration night January 2009 ... The GOP made clear what was coming next.

When it all comes down to it, I guess the country can't be run efficiently by one Black Man ... Period.

Too bad it'll probably never happen again in this lifetime.

"Won" with excess of 100% of the votes in many districts in battleground states.

But, there is no doubt that he had to meet lesser qualifications then McCain did to even run for the office.

You really can't be this inept... The advantage is that his qualifications and record (or lack thereof) was overlooked. That's what Affirmative Action entails.

The fact that you couldn't name a single thing he has ever done before his candidacy shows how intellectually dishonest you are.
