Go Barack where you came from
I've read Obama's books. I thought they were nice. He could write for Reader's Digest. But he can't be my president.
Today, Barack Obama took a bold stand on the impeachment of George Bush.
"I think you reserve impeachment for grave, grave breeches, and intentional breeches of the president's authority," said Obama.
Sir... just how many graves does a president have to dig?
"I believe," he continued, "if we began impeachment proceedings we will be engulfed in more of the politics that has made Washington dysfunction."
Sir... treason is not politics. It's crime. Crime makes Washington "dysfunction." Justice makes it functional.
"We would once again, rather than attending to the people's business, be engaged in a tit-for-tat, back-and-forth, nonstop circus."
Sir... if you believe impeachment would be a circus, then you're a clown. Nonstop? You weren't around for Watergate, were you? Once things began, they ended quick.
Obama said he's been upset by the "loose ethical standards, the secrecy and incompetence" of a "variety of characters" in the administration.
Loose? Who's side are you on, sir? You want loose? Watch Loose Change. You call this band of criminals "characters?" Such a nice, clean young man. Joe Biden was right about you. You'd be the perfect presidential patsy, so nice you are. Don't want to be too tough on those characters.
"There's a way to bring an end to those practices, you know," he said. "Vote the bums out. That's how our system is designed."
No, sir, not true. Our system is designed to impeach any elected official who violates his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We, the People, have a legal obligation and a moral duty to impeach, especially in the presence of such a high degree of presidential malfeasance.
If we ignore it, we'll get more of the same. The only way to stop it in the future is to stop it now.
We never got the chance to see Richard Nixon face justice. Ford pardoned him to spare the country any more of "our long national nightmare." The result? More of the same. Spurious presidential behavior, rampant adventurism, secret wars, crime, crime, crime.
No, Barack, you don't vote the bums out. You throw them out.
Take a few more years. You may fill out that suit eventually, but not yet.
