Even with a majority, it’s likely that Republicans will be too afraid to impeach America’s first black president

Arrogant Obama

Barack Obama’s lawlessness has become so obvious that even intellectually honest folks on the Left are sitting up and taking notice:

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, a frequent guest of Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow during the Bush years, described the situation in severe terms.

“I really have great trepidation over where we are headed,” Turley said. “We are creating a new system here. . . . The center of gravity is shifting, and that makes it unstable. Within that system you have a rise of an uber-presidency. There could be no greater danger for individual liberty. And I really think that the Framers would be horrified by that shift.”

The situation, Turley later said, is the “most serious constitutional crisis, I believe, in my lifetime.”

That lawlessness doesn’t just rest with Obama’s recent decision to ignore statutory deadlines regarding Obamacare and, instead, to impose his own deadlines in the hope that the worst of Obamacare won’t hit until after the 2014 elections.  (And you thought it was bad now….)  Instead, Obama’s lawlessness encompasses everything — the laws he refuses to enforce, the executive orders he uses with abandon to run around Congress, and his deep disdain for the United States Constitution.

It’s appalling (but, of course, not surprising) that congressional Democrats would rather see the country’s constitutional framework collapse than lay a finger on a renegade politician.  Indeed, they’re so excited about their agenda’s successes (despite the public’s increasing disregard for those same Leftist initiatives) that congressional Democrats openly support the way in which Obama is making Congress irrelevant.

What’s depressing (but, of course, not surprising) is that it’s unlikely that, even if Republicans control both houses in Congress (which is a possibility in Obamacare’s wake), they too will do nothing to rein Obama in.  Reining Obama in, of course, means impeaching the man.  There is no other way to put the brakes on his conduct.  Unfortunately, though, Obama has pretty much be inoculated against impeachment because of the “racism” charge that the Left uses to respond to every critique made against the man and his policies.

Republicans suspect — and are probably right — that no matter how dreadful Obamacare proves to be, and  how low Obama’s polling numbers go, the mainstream media will deliberately foment race riots should Republicans make any effort to impeach the first black president.  The fact that blacks constitute less than 20% of the population, and that not all will riot, is irrelevant.  Nationwide race riots would have a devastating effect on America’s fabric.

Sadly it seems, this crook is here to stay.

    Nixon said he wasn’t a crook, but his enemies on the other side were, including the FBI going around spying on citizens and doing no warrant searches.

    Imagine if you were certain in what Obama and the Left were, as they are now, but traveled back in the past to 2008, where people were saying “just give Obama some time, he’ll fix it” and what Republicans were saying or doing then?
    Wouldn’t a lot of things seem pointless, that people weren’t even aware of the Left’s power, and thus civil war would be inevitable?

    I don’t give a #$%&! what the republicans suspect.  The job is the job, and if you don’t want to do it then #$%&! you too, republicans.  Find something else to do with your free time.

    Also notice that Turley only came to this realization after getting beaten to a pulp by Trey Gowdy in front of a Congressional committee.  Turley stuttered and squirmed trying to defend his King but finally gave up- he knew he was beaten and couldn’t lie with a straight face any more.  It was beautiful to watch!

    They wouldn’t dare commit political suicide by losing all 200 of their black voters. So, at least, they do support at least one of their constituent groups.

    It’s OK if they don’t impeach. This guy needs to become the devil incarnate.
    Oh, and if Obamacare continues to implode like it has been, I’m not sure even charges of racism will save him. Racial equality is a nice, touch-feely concept for most people until they are the ones affected by it. Ever hear of “white flight?” What happened to all the high-minded ideals of those urban elites when the minorities started moving in?
    They went right out the window.

    A race war—which the Democrats would gladly bring—would mean the end of our republic.
    But make no bones about it: Blacks would lose, and horribly. No amount of delusional posturing or heavy-duty victimology can substitute for numbers, coherence, and organization. The ghetto culture is a mental and spiritual dead end, and no match for the millions of decent people of all colors who would resist it to its death if it were to try to spread its contagion.

    I’m not so sure about this.
    Today, at this time, Obama may be difficult to impeach. However, if enough of his Administration’s crimes and misdemeanors are brought to light over the next 1-2 years and both the Senate and House are in firm Republican hands, some wise Democrats may find it politically expedient to ask him to resign á la Nixon.

    The Republicans learned about the downside of going for impeachment with Clinton. They didn’t succeed and most of the really damaging honest things that the Senate had to say was behind closed doors. Then Clinton emerged happy and politically intact. Like all politics its real power is how people respect and react to it. With Obama his biggest fear is not his legacy but whether he might have to pick up the tip. The opposition (meaning someone who isn’t an establishment Republican) would do better by creating a strong legislative presence with real teeth.

    Race riots?  Really?  Wake up. The real reason they won’t impeach, can’t impeach . . .
    three words.   President Joe Biden.

      Historically, regimes have been elected into power due to physical intimidation, ala Reichstag.
      I think it’s still the most direct and effective ploy.

  • Charles Martel

    I rolled “President Joe Biden” around on my tongue just to get the flavor of it.
    Long story short: 16 stitches, no talking for 6 weeks, and no foods except pablum and unsweetened tapioca. Thanks a lot, Barack.

      LOL..Hammer. Reading your comments keeps ME in stitches.

    People should be afraid of the Left, if they understand what it is they are facing here. If they don’t, then ignorance is bliss and sticking the head in the sand will survive a tsunami.
