With each new extra-constitutional action taken by President Obama (they’re slowly becoming too numerous to count) a chorus of impeachment talk inevitably rises then just as inevitably fades. Conventional wisdom is that hardline establishment Republicans or Tea Party-backed hyper-partisans would be the ones to lead the impeachment charge. But in this case, conventional wisdom is flawed. The ones who ought to be doing any and everything within their power to impeach and remove this president are our nation’s Democrats!
Barack Obama is doing damage to the Democrat Party that, while not irreparable, may well take decades if not longer to recover from. Not just on Capitol Hill -- from Canada to Mexico, Atlantic to Pacific, governor’s mansions to local school boards Obama is obliterating Democrats everywhere. He’s fortifying red state strongholds, turning purple states red, and even toppling Democrat seats in solidly blue states. Republicans should almost lament the 22nd Amendment. With another term in office Obama could well deliver the governorships of California and New York to go along with the gifts of Maryland, Illinois, and Massachusetts he just airmailed them in November.
Seems that many American voters, Democrats in particular, are in love with the idea of Obama but not in love with Obama’s ideas. The notion of casting their ballots for a young, good-looking, articulate, black-American struck the right nerve for millions of voters. But his obsessive desires to fundamentally change America into debt-laden, socialist utopia for bisexual transgender unionized illegals do not.
No poll showing a plurality of voters in favor of his signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act, can be found. Nor can one be found for granting amnesty to millions of illegals, adding trillions of dollars of new debt, weakening our military, forcing Common Core upon the states, expanding the IRS, increasing energy costs, nor a myriad of other “nation changing” actions he’s taken while in office or promised to take before leaving.
As the president himself said prior to the last elections, he was not personally on the ballot but his policies were. Americans are not just rejecting his policies they’re hopping mad over them. Since Obama wasn’t on the ballot voters are taking that anger out on the next best thing: anyone with a “D” after their name.
