White House To Boehner: We Did NOT Start Impeachment 'Scam'

By SAHIL KAPUR Published JULY 29, 2014, 1:04 PM EDT

The White House fired back at Speaker John Boehner on Tuesday after the Republican told reporters that talk of impeachment is a "scam" by Democrats to raise money and gin up their base.

"Well if that's the case then I suspect that there may be members of the Republican conference that didn't receive the memo," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at his daily briefing, proceeding to rattle off a list of Republicans who have floated impeachment.

"We've seen comments in recent months from Congressman Steve King from Iowa, Congressman Ted Yoho from Florida, Congressman Lou Barletta from Pennsylvania, the distinguished Congressman Steve Stockman from Texas; his fellow Texan Blake Farenthold has raised this prospect. We've even seen Kerry Bentivolio from Michigan call this a dream come true. I think that was about 9 or 10 months ago," Earnest said. "So that's an indication that if the case then maybe the Speaker should direct that attention and that message to members of his own conference."

1. Josh Earnest appreciation thread is needed. I notice the corporate media is shying away from

broadcasting his broadsides.

2. What bozos!

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]Guess what, reTHUGs? Maddow, Stewart, Colbert, and plenty of others are going to have a lot of fun with this. Thanks for the entertainment.

You guys really enjoy being laughing stock, huh? Or do you really think people other than your brain-dead, proud-to-be-ignorant base are that f*#@%g stupid?

4. They continue right on painting

 

Themselves into a corner when its obvious that is what is happening. They have come too far to stop themselves. The cancer in their party is not going away.These are the proud to be ignorant you speak of. They are the 2 people who would shout down an entire classroom , wrong about everything , but do not care. There will always be the two idiots in every room abd they will always be the loudest. They have all taken a spot in the GOP and fully intend to take over.
When they do, they will be ignored and the GOP will have to become something else.

6. Facts?

I think it was Pat Moynihan that said, "You are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts." Of course outlets like Fux Noise all try to create an alternative reality.
