The big lede on Drudge today was “Obama Begging to Be Impeached,” but TX Rep. Steve Stockman had a more politically savvy, if not as satisfying, response to Barack Obama’s disdain for his oath of office.
Stockman is right when he says the Democrats would love to see the President impeached right now before the midterm election, even though constitutionally it may be the right thing to do.
But as much as it may appeal to we regular guys who remember an America where our leaders at least made the pretense of fulfilling their oaths of office, impeachment would almost certainly backfire on this pantywaist GOP.
John Boehner couldn’t organize a trip to the bathroom for a group of third-graders on a Capitol tour, much less the impeachment of the first black president.
The GOP has been in a messaging drought since Ronald Reagan left office in 1988. How are they going to convince low-information voters to dump Barack Obama when even Rand Paul says, “his heart is in the right place“?
Barack Obama’s contempt for our laws borders on sedition. Recognizing these lapdog RINOs’ weaknesses Obama has subverted the Constitution at every imaginable turn. His heart is most certainly not in the right place.
Obama is an open-borders renegade who wants to drive a stake through the heart of the republic. Anyone who doesn’t believe that simply isn’t watching, or they agree with him.
But impeachment will fail and the backlash will be hardest on constitutional conservatives. As bad as the Obama presidency has been, imagine compounding it with four or eight years of Elizabeth Warren or Hillary Clinton.
And that is what is at stake.
Republican interests would be far better served by cutting the White House operating expenses.
Cut off his green fees; make his Fore! a Three! Let the SOB grovel for a charcoal burger. Revoke Mooch’s Thigh Master privileges. Cut off Barry’s Gay Times magazine subscription! Just kidding.
Seriously, I have no idea how Congress should put a financial stranglehold on the White House; I only know it can.
It is time for the GOP to declare war on this White House with the best weapon at their disposal.
The power of the purse.
Then again, #Impeachobama
It has such a nice ring to it.
