On the other, Republicans are calling their repeated and numerous calls for impeachment a liberal plot.
Bachmann has joined noted empty-headed morons like Steve King in claiming that impeachment is a Democratic scam, yet still claiming it’s a good idea. It’s like having your cake, saying it’s a cheeseburger, then eating a cheeseburger.
Look, this entire situation is so monumentally mind-numbing that it’s difficult to discuss it and maintain the ability to form coherent thoughts. Let’s face it: if even Breitbart thinks it’s a bad idea, you’re an idiot for suggesting it in the first place.
Just last month, Bachmann participated in the Democratic fundraising plot that is the ‘impeachment lie’ by calling for Barack Obama’s impeachment.
What our president has done is commit impeachable offenses. He has committed them in terms of his lawless acts, he has failed to execute the laws. He said that he would not uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, which is a constitutionally passed law, he said he would not uphold that, as did his attorney general Eric Holder. That, as well as the President changing law like Obamacare, he writes with a press conference or with a Tweet or a Facebook or an announcement of one of his underlings, and then orders the executive branch to carry out his words rather than the law. That rises to the level of an impeachable offense.
Legally, do I believe our president has committed impeachable offenses? Yes I do. And I believe that our president is subject to impeachment. However, I agree with Andy McCarthy in that not only is impeachment a legal issue, it is even more so a political issue. The American people have to agree with and be behind and call for the president’s impeachment. Why do I say that? I say that because we the people who are elected in the United States Congress, we are here to be the voice of the people and we need to reflect what it is what the people are telling us.
There is a group of people who see that this president has committed an impeachable offense and are anxious for Congress to do something, but if you look at the overwhelming number of people, they just aren’t there yet and it is up to Congress to make the case and explain to the people why we have to impeach.
Fortunately, conservatives don’t have long memories, so Bachmann did not have much to worry about last week when she joined conservative radio host Lars Larson…and blamed Obummer for their desire to impeach him. She accused President Obama of encouraging efforts to impeach him because “it will help [Democrats’] electoral chances’ in 2014 and 2016.
Bachmann said the President would proceed to “take any lawless action that he wants to because he really doesn’t think that the Republicans will impeach him. He figures it’s an open field day and now is the time to get everything he wants with his radical agenda.”
