Suicide By Stupidity

Sarah Palin may be tossing the red meat to help her SarahPAC, and I think most reasonable people in the GOP realize it. In fact, the GOP is pursuing their "sue the President" strategy as a way of backing away from the concept of impeachment. That's not to say that Obama isn't deserving of being subject to the impeachment process, as he most definitely is, by any stretch of the imagination. In this, I'll agree with Derek, and I'll also agree that, given the strict legal standard that is usually applied to the process, there is no proof that meets the standard. However, that doesn't change the fact that impeachment is more of a political process, rather than a legal one, and the "high crimes and misdemeanors" can mean whatever the whole House, and the Judiciary Committee say they mean. So common sense would say that, under current conditions in Washington, the "I" word should be firmly shelved until after the mid-terms, at minimum, and at maximum, when the legal "smoking gun" is discovered at last. Thus far, no one in the GOP leadership is seriously considering impeachment, regardless of what Sarah says. I'm betting that Boehner will never bring up the process, even if the smoking gun does turn up.

But courting impeachment proceedings seems a rather extreme tactic to use just for spin value. It would seem far too easy to lose control of the spin in such a situation. But then, I'm not a political party desperately trying to maintain its hold on power, so what do I know? :-) As far as violations of law are concerned, I seem to remember reading an opinion of law stating that "high crimes and misdemeanors" are precisely what the House of Representatives, and the Judiciary Committee, say that they are. In any event, I'm more than slightly curious as to how far the Dems are willing to roll with this particular tactic. It might just make October kinda interesting!
That's due largely to the fact that Carter presided during a time when an office holder would at least pretend to possess a modicum of self-restraint, even if such a quality wasn't actually present.
This is the kind of story that makes you realize just how desperate to hold onto power the Dems must be at this moment. After all, they are pondering the political decapitation of their own party as a means of tightening their grip on said power. Even the dimmest of the LIV's has to take notice of the fact that his political enemies is NOT among those talking impeachment, then put two and two together (as difficult as that is for an LIV, or your average Dem, for that matter), and realize just what is going on here.
CompCon: "Jimmuh Cahtuh's reputation hasn't been rehabilitated, and it never will. Hussein is going to do even worse." --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Absolutely. Jimmy Carter was a micromanager to the nth degree, while Obama would rather be on the golf course or at a campaign fundraiser (i.e. high class begging event), or ANYWHERE, other than his at his desk in the Oval Office, actually doing his job.

Mrs. Obama's Desperate Plea

Actions have always spoken louder than words. That's why the aphorism exists, after all. Speaking for myself, I always abide by it, as it's an accurate long term indicator of individual members of a group who, since they don't produce, always steal. As for the video in question, I would call it the beginnings of the realization in Michelle that the lavish freebie have a now limited shelf-life.
Hopefully, proceedings will be scheduled to begin on or about Wednesday, November 5, 2014. That would be a sufficient date. BTW fool, you're desperately trying to blame Sarah Palin for Obama's failures. Sorry, but that dog don't hunt. Obama's failures are all his own, and he has no one to blame but the reflection of the person he sees in his mirror.
They're trying desperately to cover their foolish liberal, bureaucratic back sides. You'll notice that any talk of the mail server isn't even present.
Well, I'm just trying to apply some logic to all this, so this whole silly mess would at least appear to be such to me. However, and this is the big sticking point, I'm not a lawyer, so that's why I asked.
