Now, I love Sarah Palin, I really do. She terrifies the left by existing and willingly draws fire away when lefties attack the right. I admire her – but she got this one wrong.
The democrats, you see are actually praying that Republicans do impeach the President and remove him from office. As things stand Obama is their albatross. He hangs around the neck of the DNC and holds them responsible, in part or in whole, for each and every Obama scandal. His “sins” are theirs.
The only thing that can free them from the albatross is us. I don’t want to and you shouldn’t want to either. Impeaching him would absolve the Democrats of all responsibility for all of his scandals. ALL of his disastrous decisions will no longer matter. Then the Republican Party will once again be the party of racists. This is the only thing that could possibly save the Democrats in 2016.
A few nuts and bolts. It only takes a simple majority of the House of Representatives to impeach. We could do this tomorrow. BUT it requires two thirds of the Senate to remove him from office. That is in fact the only sentence they can hand down. It has never been done. (I swear to God, Clinton enjoyed the process because in the end it was not even a slap on the wrist. He still brags about it.) I think we will get more than half of the Senate seats in 2014, but not two thirds. It doesn’t matter if we succeed or fail to remove him from office, not only do we give up every advantage we have, we will turn Obama into a living martyr. And he is going to live a long time.
You see, no matter how we squirm, it comes back to the fact he is the first black President. The only way to make sure no future President is ever excused for his incompetence by his skin color alone is to have someone to point at and say “Never Again!” Obama will be the guy.
I understand impeachment is an attractive idea. We all want to get that narcissist the hell out of there. But, if we impeach him, the people that put him there will walk away from all responsibility and they will quickly put another idiot in charge. Then we have to do this all over again.
So, Mrs. Palin, I respectfully must disagree with you. We need to leave the Obamatross around the neck of the Democrat Party. Impeaching him is quite simply the dumbest thing we could do.
