They may get their wish.
It's been a drumbeat in the right-wing Internets for about a month now, and its beginning to become a litmus test among the faithful. As it gains political valence, Boehner is exploring suing the President in a surely futile gesture that will be both a trial balloon and provide some political cover for impeachment proceedings.
But Free Republic's steady diet of hate seems to have had an effect. What once would have excited Freepers to no end brings about only cynical rumblings and ever increasing demands.
Peter ODonnell does not care about political cover at all:
wot’s all this about Bo(eh)ner taking him to small claims court to recover the five trillion he’s blown away?clintonh8r explains that impeachment would be a smart political maneuver:
C’mon GOP, grow o pair.
Impeachment proceedings would be a great way to tie up a lame duck session so the outgoing reps can’t get to any mischief.. The Duke wonders if impeachment might turn America against Obama:
Impeachment ill simply be fought with one delay after another...by the time he is he’ll be out of office.SeaHawkFan seems to really care about Due Process
Regardless, if he is convicted in the "court of public opinion" it could have a profound affect on election day (maybe).
It could also be that we're already beyond redemption.
Impeachment could be done in the house in two weeks, with a Senate trial two weeks after that.Viennacon:
Too late. He’s already destroyed the countryCheerio is done with politics, except for super-right wing crazy websites:
NEVER EVER gonna happen with the bunch of wussies the GOP has in the District of Corruption. The shenanigans of Thad Cochran last night convinced me I am tuning out of all politics for the rest of my short remaining life. I am done. I will still read FR, Zerohedge, Canada Free press but I am done voting, or supporting any candidates. Finished, done, over.Osage Orange thinks lashing out at lower-level figures first would work well.
If a new conservative party emerges in the next couple of years I will take another look.
Start by impeaching the head of the IRS.....zzwhale has a list of demands to take us back to 1850, but with more pollution:
Let the Dim's defend that.
be PATIENT...... wait to see if repubs/T can take the SENATE... get rid of Mumbles Reid and then IMPEACH... MORE IMPORTANT WOULD BE TO HAVE A MAJ TO OVERRIDE ANY PREZ VETO.QT3.14 doesn't care about impeachment, he's just happy being.
