A Glimpse Into The Future

Untitled document

This is from FrontPage Magazine, so normally, I wouldn't get too het up about it. But it is a very interesting take on what the Democrats plan if they get control of one or both of the chambers of Congress. It would be political suicide, mind you. It would destroy any chance the Democrats have of being a viable party in the 2008 elections. But this is the party that has consistently overplayed every hand it has been dealt for years. So it is at least cautionary. The fact that some bills have already been introduced is not exactly reassuring, either.

A plan is in place to censure and impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Orchestrated and organized by the radical Left and Congressman John Conyers, Jr., this plan is ready to go should the Democratic Party take control of the House of Representatives in November.

The plan is the ultimate manifestation of left-wing hatred for George W. Bush rooted in the contentious election of 2000. Since failing to defeat Bush in 2004, the Left has focused its efforts on destroying his presidency by assembling a list of charges aimed at impeaching him.

Impeachment plans began seriously coalescing in 2005, after the NY Times published classified aspects of the NSA surveillance program. In mid- December of that year, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA, asked a group of presidential scholars whether President George W. Bush had committed an impeachable offense when he authorized the NSA foreign surveillance program. John Dean, the long-time Bush critic of Watergate fame provided Boxer with the answer she and most other Democrats were looking for: “Bush is the first president to admit an impeachable offense,” he said.

Charles Rangel has already announced he will cut off funding for the war if the Democrats get power (with the magical super power of not hurting the troops while cutting their support out from under them. Neat trick.) So that is already in the air, like the ripe aroma of an overfull port-a-potty on a hot, sunny day. The left is absolutely screaming for this to occur and will make life a living hell for anyone who doesn't toe their line. You can ask Joe Lieberman about that. Are the Democrats fool enough to try this?

They nominated John Kerry, didn't they?

  1. This isn’t new! It has long been rumoured that Speaker Pelosi will be the next President. Sometime in early ’05 there was a Kossak blog post which detailed how Bush and Cheney could be simultaneouly impeached.

    Is President Bush vulnerable to impeachment proceedings? Or is it rather that President Bush is now vulnerable to accountability subpoenas?
    I don’t think the average citizen has any way to answer such questions, inasmuch as the Republican Congress demonstrated an abysmal record of ignoring its oversight responsibilities toward the Executive Branch, and settled for rubber-stamping instead of asking important questions in serious debate over issues that affect us all.
    It seems to me that the lock-step talking-points rubber-stampers, by chosing to focus themselves toward establishing a single-party permanent majority government and especially by continually dissing the minority members who represent roughly have the U.S. citizens, are the guilty ones whose behavior may lead to lots of subpoenas. The Republicans created a government accountability void that cries out for corrective balancing.

    Please. You are buying far too much into some incredibly overblown hyperbole. I would almost like to see the Dems take it in November, because they would utterly and completely wreck themselves if they follow this course. Then maybe they will get some adults who stop trying to play this stupid, stupid finger-pointing style of opposition. OFFER SOME FREAKING DECENT ALTERNATIVES, not mindless, endless, overblown, hysterical criticism of any and every thing.

    But by all means, Donna, keep swallowing that style of stupid politics instead of solving anything. Investigate and watch the party disintegrate.

  5. Donna…Does what you wite you don’t like the Republicans? I’m just asking because that dogmaspeak you use is so obtuse that I want to be sure.

    That being said, what do you think of President Pelosi?
