Contrary to popular political theory and the hopes and wishes of millions of Republican voters, not to mention the strategic blunder of the Republican National Committee (RNC), I predict that without a massive shift in Republican political posture, they will not only lose congress in November, but several governorships and the entire Republican Party as well.
Popular theory goes something like this…. “The Obama administration is the worst in U.S. history and Republicans will win elections simply because people will come out to vote against the Obama regime.”
If this theory could hold any water at all, this theory would have been realized in the 2012 election. Instead, an estimated eight million conservative voters stayed home on Election Day because they could no longer tell any difference between Republicans and Democrats. Two years later, the distinction between the two parties is even more nonexistent and conservative voters are ready to throw in the towel on the once Grand Ole conservative party.
Nearly every American, including many black, poor and middle income Democrats know that the Obama regime is the most impeachable administration in U.S. history. Certainly every congressional Republican knows it, after six years on the sidelines of federal government while the dictator-in-chief operates as if there is but one branch of government today.
Yet congressional Republicans have locked themselves into a suicidal game of Russian roulette over impeachment, refusing to even entertain the idea of impeaching the most impeachable administration in history, as public calls for impeachment become increasingly desperate.
Conservative public figures like Sarah Palin and Lt. Col. Allen West are openly calling for impeachment now, after six years of trying to go along to get along for political expediency. Meanwhile, Republican Party strategists like David Limbaugh make excuses for congressional republicans, saying things like – “I don’t think Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against President Obama right now…” after asking – “Has the Right Lost its Will to Fight?” – Talk about mixed messages!
Big Brother Rush says – “Impeachment will never happen!”
Why all the cowardice on the right?
Lame Excuse #1 – Harry Reid’s Senate will never convict!
It’s not “Harry Reid’s Senate.” It is the United States Senate. It belongs to the American people, not Harry Reid or his Democratic Socialist Party of communist criminal misfits. Harry Reid cannot preside over impeachment, nor can he control the outcome of the trial in any fashion. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court must preside and members of the Senate must conduct themselves in a very specific manner under their oath of office and Senate Rules of Impeachment. They are not legislators in an impeachment trial, they are jurors. They must follow the evidence presented and the law.
Lame Excuse #2 – Impeachment will hand Democrats a campaign tool!
Everything is a campaign tool to democrats. Of course democrats will use impeachment as a tool to rally their troops. They use everything to rally their troops. They are using the mere threat of impeachment as a tool to raise funds right now. The question is what does the Republican Party have to raise funds and support? Nothing! They have done nothing to stop the rising tide of crime, corruption and communism sweeping the nation from the Obama regime over the past six years. Republicans have NO campaign strategy right now, none! – “Vote for us, we are not as bad as them?”
Lame Excuse #3 – No public support for impeachment!
Unfortunately for congressional Republicans, the facts do not support this claim at all. A recent Drudge Report poll in which over two-hundred thousand right-leaning respondents voted for or against impeachment, over 76% said impeach now!
But even in the left-leaning Huffington Post poll, more than two-thirds of Republican-leaning voters want impeachment to begin. 89% of Republican voters and 52% of Independent voters agree that Obama has abused his office and exceeded his authority. Only 67% of Democrats and 25% of Independents disagree.
Even in a small private poll of my Facebook friends, 93% say impeach and incarcerate the entire Obama regime. The message from pro-American voters is totally unambiguous. Impeach!
Lame Excuse #4 – Obama hasn’t committed any impeachable offenses!
Republican Chair of the House Judiciary Committee Goodlatte told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on This Week, – “We are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment,” – “The Constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment of the President of the United States. He has not committed the kind of criminal acts that call for that.”
Yet, there’s no need to list all of the impeachable offenses at this point, everyone knows them and it would take an encyclopedia volume or two to chronicle it all. Goodlatte knows better… he’s just a foolish coward and long-time inside the beltway player.
Lame Excuse #5 – It’s better to sue the President than impeach him!
When liberal pro-Obama scholars question the legality of President Barack Obama’s actions, the issue of illegal presidential use of power moves from partisan to frightening. George Washington Law School’s Jonathan Turley is the second most quoted law professor in the nation and a two-time Obama voter.
Turley said: “President Obama has repeatedly violated this (separation of powers) doctrine in the circumvention of Congress in areas ranging from health care to immigration law to environmental law. We are in the midst of a constitutional crisis with sweeping implications for our system of government. … ” We are now at the constitutional tipping point for our system.” (Human Events)
But Turley is a left-leaning poison Ivy League lawyer. Although he correctly identifies some of Obama’s treasonous acts, Turley is the man responsible for selling the foolish law suit idea to congressional Republicans like House Speak Boehner and Judiciary Committee Chair Goodlatte. Once again, we see congressional Republicans following the lead of corrupt leftist legal beagles instead of following the Constitution and Rule of Law.
Such a law suit would abdicate all congressional authority over the matter to the judicial branch, wherein an Obama appointed court would get to make the decision that only congress has the constitutional authority and duty to make. But it does provide a little political cover for cowardly House Republicans, in that they can pretend to do something while doing nothing that actually matters.
Lame Excuse #6 – You can’t impeach a usurper!
Impeachment is the constitutionally sound means of charging officials with crimes and removing them from office. If usurping the power of the Oval Office by election fraud is not an impeachable offense, then nothing is.
The notion that impeaching bad actors somehow legitimizes those bad actors is insane on its face. Impeachment has never legitimized anyone or anything. And if you think charging these bad actors with crimes and removing them from office is a bad idea, how bad is the idea of leaving them in office to complete the destruction of our country unchallenged while fantasizing about unfounded legal theories?
Why Republicans are poised to lose BIG in November…
After six years of playing dead and ceding congressional authority to the Executive and Judicial branches, the republican voter base has absolutely nothing to vote for in November.
89% of registered republican voters want this entire criminal cabal impeached and removed from office, according to even left-leaning reports. This means that 89% of republican voters will not have anything or anyone to vote for in November, if cowardly House Republicans continue to run from their responsibilities.
At least 52% of registered independent voters also support impeachment now, which means that without impeachment, they too have no reason to support Republicans in November.
Even black groups have had the decency, honor and courage to present Articles of Impeachment against this criminal cabal, proving that race has nothing to do with it. A growing number of congressional Republicans are feeling the pressure to impeach.
Right now, nobody in this country has any reason at all to vote Republican in November. The Republican Party has nothing but broken promises, cowardice and failed leadership to run on in November.
Only impeachment can save the Republican Party or the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America at this point.
It must be done and it must be done right and completely. The country can survive the impeachment of the worst administration in U.S. history. But it cannot survive its fools or cowards!
People need to stop playing armchair political strategist. The right thing to do is always the right thing to do, no matter the difficulty!
It’s time to JUST DO IT!
