Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Congressional Republicans who've been calling for President Barack Obama's impeachment are now acting like they never had the idea, reports Dave Weigel of Slate. Just a few days after telling Breitbart News that Obama leaves Congress "no option" but impeachment if he doesn't support the Republicans on new border security measures, Yoho was asked by a Washington Post reporter if Obama should be impeached. "I'm not saying that," he replied.

Weigel writes:

On Tuesday, after the conference meeting, Speaker John Boehner told reporters that impeachment was "a scam started by the Democrats at the White House."

It wasn't. If impeachment is a scam, it was started on the right, early in the Obama presidency. Some of its early adherents believed in it; some thought they were merely responding to the passions of constituents; some, obviously, wanted to raise money.

But I thought it was just the Democrats who had pretended the Republicans were talking about impeachment? Boehner must be embarrassed but then that is his normal situation with the crazies in his party.

The GOTP is a hot mess right now. After weeks of ginning up the lawsuit and impeachment if the lawsuit fails they suddenly see the reality of how the Dems will fund raise with it and now are running for cover.

Boehner is even blaming the Dems for all the impeachement talk.

Boehner has said that there will be no impeachment. Palin called for it but, she's not a elected official so it carries no weight. No different then you wing dings that were calling for Bush to be impeached when he was president. Obama is simply playing this up to try and save his presidency and hold on to the senate in the mid terms. Like everything else Obama's just playing politics with this.

There were rumblings about impeaching Bush as well.

The fact is, nobody of any significance within the GOP is talking impeachment.

Of course, the MSM dutifully follows the Dems lead on this and pretends as if it's being seriously discussed.

It would be nice if just one journalist would press, say, Nancy Pelosi on the impeachment talk. But, that will never happen.

What exactly did I get wrong?

Is Steve Scalise the house whip right now? Is he house whip thru January? He is on Teevee playing the part, that's for sure.

You people and your desperate semantics.

Fact is the 3rd ranking republican right now, today, refuses to say a simple "no" regarding any plans to impeach rendering any absurd claim that no republican of "significance" is entertaining the idea of impeachment laughable at best.

When Obama acts on his own during recess to deal with the immigration issue, you'd better believe Republicans will hear "Impeach!" during their town hall meetings in their districts. They're going to come back in September with a renewed vigor for impeaching the President. Then they're going to say, like the current Majority Whip, that it was on the table all along.

Drop the mic and walk off the stage. The Tea party have sixty votes in the house and ranking members have recently been unable to take impeachment of the table. Democrats would be committing political malpractice if they did not take advantage of this childish, hatred motivated nonsense to raise money or create turnout.

Impeach the bast*rd. Plane and simple he's a terrible president who has exceeded the power given him in the constitution.

Hopefully we have learned our lesson. A recent poll shows that if we redid the 2012 election Romney would beat Obummer by 9 points.

Impeach the bast*rd. Plane and simple he's a terrible president who has exceeded the power given him in the constitution.
Be specific. Four ------------ presidents have served since 1970 Two of them left office in disgrace. One of the presided over a cabinet with the most indictments and convictions in US history and was convicted in international court of genocide and was ordered to pay restitution. He was facing domestic charges for selling weapons to Iran and had Caspar Weinberger not been pardoned would have been in deep do... only he was too brain dead.

Hopefully we have learned our lesson. A recent poll shows that if we redid the 2012 election Romney would beat Obummer by 9 points.
Because in the mind of the clown something that never happened and will never happen because it was a matter settled a long time ago is more relevant than what actually happened. Typical ------------ fantasy thinking. Like if only Saddam had not be disarmed by Bush in 1991 there would have been WMDs for Bush 2 to find the world would be a better place.
YOu people just love that crap you can't prove.

Despite Speaker's (and Jeff J.'s) Claims to the Contrary, Dozens of Republicans Irresponsibly Float Impeachment

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK): Inhofe, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview Thursday with "The Rusty Humphries Show" that impeachment would become an issue soon over the "greatest cover-up in American history." "People may be starting to use the I-word before too long," Inhofe said. "The I-word meaning impeachment?" Humphries asked. "Yeah," Inhofe responded. [The Hill, 5/10/13]

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK): According to Tulsa World, at a convention in Muskogee, Okla., Coburn said Wednesday that the president was "getting perilously close" to the Constitutional standard for impeachment. He also called the Obama administration lawless and incompetent, the news site reported, although he acknowledged the president as a "personal friend." [Politico, 8/22/13]

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): "It's going to be impossible for them to flow prisoners out of Gitmo now without a huge backlash," Graham said. "There will be people on our side calling for his impeachment if he did that." [The Hill, 6/4/14]

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC): "There are a lot of things people say, 'Are you going to impeach the president over that?' - No. But this? This is catastrophic," continued Scott. "This jeopardizes the credibility of our nation if one man can usurp the entire system set up by our founding fathers over something this significant." [Huffington Post, 7/6/11]

Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA): "Not a day goes by when people don't talk to us about impeachment. I don't know what rises to that level yet, but I know that there's a mounting frustration that a lot of people are getting to and I think Congress is going to start looking at it very seriously." [Huffington Post, 7/16/14]

Rep. Steve King (R-IA): Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, King said that if Obama "completely destroys the rule of law with the stroke of a pen" and "Congress fails to act," there will be "enough Republicans who didn't have a desire to do this" that will be "immediately activated" to consider impeachment. [Breitbart, 7/26/14]

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX): In a "WND exclusive," the rightwing site reported that after Stockman toured a border crossing at the Rio Grande on Friday, he realized, "President Obama is begging to be impeached." [Salon, 7/27/14]

Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX): "I think [President Obama has] abused his power, but at the end of the day you have to say, if the House decides to impeach him, if the House had an impeachment vote, it would probably impeach the president," the Texas Republican said at a town hall yesterday. [National Review, 9/6/13]

Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA): "If House leadership brought an impeachment vote before the floor, then there would certainly be good reason for doing so, with substantive information and evidence to impeach the President. With the President repeatedly bypassing Congress through executive order, lying to the American people on Obamacare, and failing to address what really happened in Benghazi, I can understand why this would be an important issue to many Georgians right now." [Huffington Post, 2/3/14]

Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL): "Our President, Mr. Obama, should be impeached on the grounds of: 1. Breaking his oath to uphold the Constitution. 2. Attacking a non-threatening country. 3. We are a sovereign Nation and do not take commands from the U.N. or NATO. 4. Not responding within the required 60 days to inform and justify to Congress why he used the War Powers Act (which is reserved for National emergency and threats to our country by foreign invaders when Congress is convened). 5. Creating and passage of the proven unconstitutional Affordable Patient Health Care Act. 6. The unconstitutional Nationalization of GM and Chrysler." [Ted Yoho.com, 6/17/11]

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX): When one attendee suggested that the House push for impeachment proceedings against President Obama to obstruct the president from pushing his agenda, Burgess was receptive. "It needs to happen, and I agree with you it would tie things up," Burgess said. "No question about that." [Star-Telegram, 8/9/11]

Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI): Rather, Mr. Bentivolio told constituents, it is to put in motion the impeachment of President Obama. "If I could write that bill and submit it, it would be a dream come true," he said this month. [NYT, 8/24/13]

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX): October 13: Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) indicates that a debt default would be "an impeachable offense" by the president. [Washington Post, 7/29/14]

Former Rep. Allen West (R-FL): Ladies and gentlemen, I submit that Barack Hussein Obama's unilateral negotiations with terrorists and the ensuing release of their key leadership without consult - mandated by law - with the U.S. Congress represents high crimes and misdemeanors, an impeachable offense. [Allen B West.com, 6/3/14]

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN): Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said Tuesday that President Obama has "committed impeachable offenses" and that the House could hold a hearing to impeach. "We can have an impeachment hearing in the House, and in my mind the president has committed impeachable offenses," Bachmann told conservative talk show host Rusty Humphries in an interview first detailed by Right Wing Watch. [The Hill, 10/9/13]

Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX): Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX) was somewhat more sympathetic to the idea but even he opposed initiating impeachment proceedings "right now," arguing that the House is too busy to get to it. "The president deserves to be impeached. Plain and simple," he said. "But ... we have so much on our plate that it's not practical." [MSNBC, 7/16/14]

Former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK): "President Obama's rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. It's not going to get better, and in fact irreparable harm can be done in this lame-duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and, mark my words, will next meddle in the U.S. Court System with appointments that will forever change the basic interpretation of our Constitution's role in protecting our rights. It's time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment." [Breitbart, 7/8/14]

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA): In 2011, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich suggested that the president could be impeached for failing to enforce the federal Defense of Marriage Act which was overturned in 2013 by the Supreme Court. [LA Times, 7/28/14] www.dpcc.senate.gov

The Republican PR machine has become the master of Orwell's doublespeak. Able to argue both for and against everything simultaneously.
Impeachment is a perennial political posture by the party out of power, rarely taken seriously and usually dismissed as a charade.
The particular iteration is being fueled by both the TP GOP & echoed by the main party for years.
Only when the GOP realized their fund raising from the faithful gambit was increasing the likelihood of anti-GOP voters in the midterm election have they switched to blaming Obama for taking the threat of impeachment seriously.

" "It would be a dream come true," said Michigan Representative Kerry Bentivolio. Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn has declared Obama "perilously close" to meeting the constitutional standards required for an impeachment trial. Texas Representative Blake Farenthold has said the House GOP probably has the votes to do it."

Obama hasn't done anything to be 'impeached' over. The lawsuit which seeks clarification of presidential authority make changes to the implementation/execution of laws without congressional input is legitimate. The claim of 'abuse of power' did not start with the Obama administration, but seems to grow with each new administration. It will be good for the courts to weigh in on it.

You didn't say seriously, you said consider:

kənˈsidər/

verb
think carefully about (something), typically before making a decision.
"each application is considered on its merits"
synonyms: think about, contemplate, reflect on, examine, review;

think about and be drawn toward (a course of action).
"he had considered giving up his job"

Are you really wanting to travel down this road Jeff? Why don't you quit while you're behind.

By any objective measure every single quote fit the criteria you established in your own post. The only thing "lame and a propaganda campaign" is your refusal to admit that the Democrats have turned the tables on the Republicans incessant attempts at throwing red meat to their base into their own weapon to attack the sloth and insolence of the congressional GOP delegation. The fact that a vast majority of non-Republicans find the topic abhorrent and absolutely without merit or justification based on the factual record is simply icing on the cake.

Enjoy it Marie, you're getting your just desserts.

It's already being teed up as we speak. The House isn't going to pass any border legislation and Obama is going to issue an executive order that will cause the GOP to do a Linda Blair headspin even though Boehner's asking him to.

Then the impeachment train will have left the station without any brakes right before this fall's elections.

I don't think (hope) so Tony. I hope the GOP realizes they will be viewed as LeBron James after not winning a title: whining, childish, and pathetic. I mean impeaching the last two Democrat Presidents would really become THE talking point IMHO and distract the party from whatever their goals may be.

Actually,distracting them might be a good thing.

IMPEACH!

There's a HUGE difference between "float" and "seriously consider", Tony.

You mean like they "floated" the idea of shutting down the entire US Government over Obamacare?

Good thing they only "floated" that one so they had a chance to realize it would not work out too well if they "seriously considered" it.

Only a lefty could drum up a fervor over something that Republicans are adamant they are NOT considering.

The Republicans are also now denying that they had anything to do with shutting down the US Government, too.

Probably best. Deny deny deny! Eventually everyone will forget what really happened or at least be confused if you can obfuscate long enough.

You are conflating unrelated issues.

The GOP is mostly responsible for the shutdown. They own that.

The GOP is NOT talking about impeachment. This is something that the Dems have created out of whole cloth and predictably the lemmings are eating it up.

The biggest culprit was the teapublicans. And Teddy Cruz certainly HASN'T owned it.

After being hammered into submission some might grudging "own" it.

The point being this is their modus operandi.

Deny! Deny! Deny! until Reality sets in and or someone hammers them into submission.

And you are completely out of touch with Reality (again) if you think the GOTP hasn't been blathering all over and any chance they get about impeaching this President. The only reason they aren't pushing for it is that they don't have the votes and they don't control the Senate.

Period.

And that could easily change if we don't get out the vote.

A week later, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) was asked, "Why don't we impeach him [Obama]?" His answer was similar to Farenthold's. "It's a good question," the freshman senator said, "and I'll tell you the simplest answer: To successfully impeach a president you need the votes in the U.S. Senate."
