Instead of Impeaching Obama, Let’s Impeach Unhinged House Republicans


Instead of Impeaching Obama, Let’s Impeach Unhinged House Republicans

In the world of thoroughbred dogs, there is an unspoken practice of putting down animals that resist intervention training to prevent the propagation of unwanted behavior due to hereditary flaws. Normally, before destroying an animal, they undergo intensive behavior modification and extensive training to modify conduct that is atypical of breed standards that may prove dangerous if a family pet becomes aggressive towards strangers. There are human beings who fall into the same category as what breeders refer to as “bad animals,” and America is home to an organized group of bad animals in Congress known as Republicans. It is a sad reality that despite two overwhelming election victories, Republicans are still disavowing that Barack Obama was legally elected as President, and instead of modifying their behavior and getting down to doing their job as legislators, they have chosen to spend time attacking the President to delegitimize his presidency.

In the aftermath of the President’s resounding victory over Willard Romney in last week’s election, Republicans are making excuses for why they lost, pretending they were victorious, or attacking the President over the tragic Benghazi attack that claimed four Americans’ lives. Perhaps Republicans are following the will of their supporters who, in a recent Pew poll, said Republicans should stand up to the President and not work with him to solve the nation’s problems, but it is more likely they are picking up where they left off and plan to obstruct the President out of spite. In fact, Republican leaders in Congress announced their intention of using Willard Romney’s tax plan as a model to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff within a day of the election, and it signaled their inability to acknowledge the election was a repudiation of Republican fiscal policies.

For Romney’s part, he spent the past week offering lame excuses for losing the election, and in a conference call with donors impugned minorities, women, and students in a repeat of the infamous 47% speech to high-value donors, and reminded voters why they rejected his candidacy last week. Several Republicans gave lip-service to women and minorities by claiming the GOP had to revamp its message to attract Latinos and women voters, but Romney’s message, and lack of pushback from Republicans, coupled with their congressional leaders adhering to his tax plan, portends more of the same bad behavior from the GOP. However, what defines Republicans’ innate behavioral flaw is their assault on the President for the Benghazi attack to invalidate his re-election.

Republicans are so focused on preventing the President from serving a second term, they are accusing him of lying to create a reason for impeachment and to cover up their failure to fund security for diplomats that certainly played a role in the deadly Benghazi attack. They are also diverting attention from David Petraeus’ failure to keep the diplomats safe. The Petraeus affair embarrassed Republicans who envisioned a political career for the incompetent general, so they are attempting to distract the public and focus on the President and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice. There is more to the Petraeus scandal than Republicans are wont to concede, and it involves at least one high-ranking Republican in Congress; more on that later.

1. I don't understand why McConnell hasn't been charged with something.

He actually makes the statement his number one job is to make sure Obama doesn't get re-elated. What about the Republicans that signed the oath to Grover Norquist, how can you
sign an oath that succeeds your oath of office.
