Impeach Obama?

I can't believe all the momentum the impeach Obama movement has gained.

In their fairy tale world what happens after he gets impeached? Does Romney get to be president? Will there be a special election?

No, president Joe Biden is what happens. I don't think these geniuses have thought this through?

1. The lost the election. The secession movement isn't working. What's left?

There are millions of people who believe this shit, so it isn't surprising the movement would take off.

Critical thinking isn't their gig.

Just laugh at them. It's the fringe clowns who are calling for impeachment.

They are calling this his "Watergate". I have been trying to point out that Obama and Obamacare is here to stay. It doesn't seem like they believe me?

6. Eric "Hand in Cookie Jar" Cantor would have to lead it.

And a solidly Democratic Senate would have to convict. Over a so-called scandal which so far only Republican Senators John (Call me Bitter) McCain and Lindsey (I'm with Bitter) Graham believe has any legs. Good luck with that Republicans. Please do this before the 2014 elections if you are going to do it. Then the Democrats can take over the House as well as continue to hold onto the Senate.

17. They

 

are trying to invent a high crime but their definition just doesn't comport with our definition of a high crime. The people that want to impeach President Obama are those that loss. They are just like Mitt Romney. They are sore losers and we should know who they are. If they want a fight, give it to them. They'll still lose. They need to grow up and go about their lives. President Obama is the President for four more years period! No more of this temper tantrum. They act like spoil brats, who lost their nipples.

23. But Congress gets to define what they are

and iin the eyes of some ultra-rightists, Persistent Negritude, a.k.a., Presidenting While Black, is sufficient cause.

It only takes a simple majority in the House to impeach, and they might be able to get that. However, it takes a 2/3 vote in the Senate to remove a president from office, and in the unlikely event of that happening they get President Biden, who can then appoint a new VP.

30. Not really. Many wanted Bush "and his gang" to be impeached. Cheney certainly was included. He

was for torture, for example, and also outed a CIA operative. How many of our foreign
overseas contacts have been killed for that alone? Cheney was Bush's mentor.

15. the "impeachObama" web address was registered before

Obama was nominated in 2008. I don't have the link but it was discussed on DU way back then.

These idiots do not want a two party system. They want dictatorial control of the government with no checks and balances.

19. There IS no "momentum", lol. There are the same group of noisy

racists and fascists making the same ugly noises. They are still unhappy that there is a BLACK man in the WHITE House and they can't control themselves.

If repukes try to impeach him they will fail just as badly as they did with Clinton. Impeachment is not an appropriate response when one loses an election in a near-landslide.

22. They'll try to manufacture it. They better hurry while the Senate's still close.

If they wait 'til after the new congress takes control, there will be fewer rethugs in the House, and even fewer in the Senate. It's ridiculous and like watching a snake try to eat itself from the tail end, but they've shown every indication that they intend to make this their MOA for every Dem elected to a second term. They didn't feel emboldened to do this before because for two years they were in a minority position. When they won the midterms, they just felt they'd sweep into everything this fall and didn't want to jeopardize their chances by having the public get a bad taste in their mouths ahead of the election.

It wouldn't surprise me if the House rethugs try to cram this down before they leave town for the holidays. They're that delusional and irrational now. Reid will just shut them down in the Senate and they'll limp back to their constituents with their collective tails between their legs. Despite their weakened condition when they return, I fully expect them to return to the same old playbook. Hopefully, if they do, they'll find that they lose even more voters and accelerate the demise of the rethug brand ahead of 2016. Whig Party next stop!

25. Obama is a black man.

Joe isn't. That is about all I can come up with.

They never thought through the Bill Clinton attempted impeachment either, with Al Gore being the one that would have taken over.

They know it is futile, but want long long hearings to diminish Obama's legacy, to get face time in the media, to raise money for pacs to fight anything Obama or Dems want to do, to eat up time in order to avoid doing any real business - etc.

I don't want to sound, ya know, racist or anything, but the fact is Biden isn't a minority. He wasn't educated to hate Amer'ca in one of them madrassas. And we don't gottah wonder about his birth certificate neither. Um just sayin'.

35. So how do these people plan to motivate a Senate majority to remove President Obama

from office? Takes two-thirds of the votes in the Senate to remove a President as a result of a "guilty" verdict in an impeachment trial initiated by the House.

People encouraging this are either (1) just attempting to stir up trouble; (2) ignorant of the Constitution; (3) simply imhinged; (4) willfully determined to embarrass President Obama; OR a member of the media who considers the subject a gold mine for those in the reporting arena.
