The blog’s old pal, Ewick Ewickson is calling, not subtly, for the impeachment of The Kenyan Usurper:
227 years ago, when the founders of the nation set about drafting the constitution, they gave the House of Representatives the exclusive power to initiate revenue bills and impeach the Executive. That the House would sue the President over his use of executive power is an indication that its leadership no more values their own powers under constitution than the President they sue.
And he concludes thusly:
John Boehner’s lawsuit is nothing more than political theater and a further Republican waste of taxpayer dollars. If the Republican leaders in the House are too chicken to use their constitutional powers to rein in the President, they should just call it a day and go home.
And so what, you ask, is E2 suggesting that they inpeach the Hawaiian Debbil Baby for doing?
It is Republicans in the House and Senate who orchestrated giving Barack Obama a blank check to raise the debt ceiling through March of 2015. It is Republicans in the House and Senate who were so scared of a government shutdown, that they threw Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee under the bus before the President even initiated a government shut down.
The House Republicans have had one major victory against the President. It was the fight over cut, cap, and balance — an idea initiated by then Senator Jim DeMint and backed by conservatives in both the House and Senate. While it ultimately did not succeed, it saw real cuts in the form of sequestration and a victory against the President on spending.
But House Republicans allowed Rep. Paul Ryan to surrender the sequestration and, working with Democrats, raise taxes.
That bastard! He outsmarted the Teabaggers! INPEACH!
The Kenyan also insisted on paying the bills that the GOP-led Congress ran up! How dare he! Also/too: Ewick is upset over spending, which he notes in his lede is the provenance of the Congress.
Poor doofus. He’s slipping.
Even Ewick Ewickson (R – Ewick), descendent of many Ewicksons, can see the obstructionism here. Guess the flag of conservative tort reform no longer has a breeze to make it wave.
Wait wait–If it’s a vast conspiracy of congressional Republicans that orchestrated whatever it’s alleged to be, I think they’d better impeach themselves. Right away, before they strike again.
