The much-respected Andrew McCarthy restates his case for ‘broad public consensus’, but forgets that the argument against impeachment does not follow a logical path.
One can only reap ‘broad public consensus’ by reasoned argument which irrefutably addresses and destroys issues that opposition forces raise…and therein lies ‘the rub’.
While Obama’s lawlessness and unconstitutional behavior justifies impeachment, consensus against impeachment centers on the fact Obama is the first black president.
And THAT fact can’t be refuted…thus, by Mr. McCarthy’s public consensus standard…
…Obama is unimpeachable…Regardless of his actions.
Obama and his minions will raise the specter of impeachment prior to the mid-term elections, because he’s not on the ticket…but that specter adds him to it.
Besides, Democrats are expert at turning a weakness into a strength. They will not allow the minor inconvenience of Obama not being on the ticket to get in their way.
With the IRS-Benghazi-Fast&Furious-VA-O’care scandals, they need something.
Political expediency…and Obama’s narcissism…demand he be center in the dialogue.
The national media lapdog will do the rest.
Democrats are using the impeachment threat to fund raise; are we expected to believe they won’t use it to get voter turnout, just because the GOP stays quiet on the issue?
It’s no longer a matter of WHO, WHEN, or HOW impeachment – or the threat of same – was initiated prior to this November’s midterm election…
…it’s now a question of WHY Republicans failed in their Constitutional duty.
Democrats pulled the trigger to energize their base, and won’t stop. The ONLY thing Republicans can do to energize its base is to impeach; not doing so turns voters off.
It’s best to remember ‘Beware of the man who has nothing to lose.’
Even with Republicans silent, Democrats and their media will scream impeachment between now and November, adding Obama to the ballot…and veiling scandals.
The GOP has nothing to lose.
