Some GOP Toss Red Meat "Impeachment" Around
a. To make an accusation against.
b. To charge (a public official) with improper conduct in office before a proper tribunal.
How do you make a name for yourself if you are a Texas Republican Congressman with no distintive record in congress, so far?
You can start by telling your constituents at a small Town Hall that it would probably not be productive to impeach Obama: "if we were to impeach the President tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted,” according to Texas GOP Congressman Jake Farenthold.
This wahoo won't tell anyone exactly what the impeachable offense is. Impeach basically means accuse, bring to trial...FOR WHAT? Passing Obamacare against HIS frigging vote???
This is nothing more than Red Meat to the Republican base...That is what this is all about. In 2009, the Tea Party went to town on President Obama on the then-proposed Affordable Health Care bill which later became law. They organized people to disrupt Town Halls with End-Of-The_world urgency that there would be "Death Panels" and all sorts of armagedon if Obamacare passed. Oy veh.
Mr. Farenthold is just one among many U.S. Representatives using these scare tactics during the congressional recess. I'm not going to go through the list of Red Meat tatctics they are using this time around. I will also spare you the details on Farenthold's "Birther" comments. OK just one “I think unfortunately the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue. The original Congress when his eligibility came up should have looked into it and they didn’t. I’m not sure how we fix it.”
2014 is just around the corner. The question in the midterm elections that will be answered is...Just how good is the voter suppression movement been in protecting GOP House seats? How many GOP govedrnors will lose their jobs because of Abortion and Social Issues? Will the Dems hold the Senate this time around?
This is what we are sending our representatives to Washington for. ONLY to protect THEIR jobs and THEIR ideology, not ours. Use your common sense. Politics is a business not "Of the people, by the people and for the people," but rather the lucky few who know how to jack the system.
