Gee, the media, Chuck Schumer, and other Democrats are whining a lot and giving a lot of advice to the GOP nowadays
I love waking up to the smell of a good piece of roasted ass… d onkey…Democratic politicians created by the bonfire of these multiple Obama Administration scandals every morning. Hey Redstate Moderators! It’s not my fault they made this the symbol of their political party. It’s just too good to pass up opening up a post like this. Of course that opening line might make a few feminists and liberals go nuts but I don’t care. Hasn’t anyone noticed how their voices are starting to go up a few octaves and the fretting is becoming more frequent? Their strategists must be seeing that the investigations and the scandal are taking their toll. Their hopes?
Hope the GOP rushes to impeach President Obama.
- The House caves and passes the Gang of 8 Immigration legislation
- The House committees stop their investigations into these multiple scandals
More on these hopes in a bit. When the media and Democratic politicians like Chuck Schumer are giving advice to the GOP, practically begging the other side for a lifeline, you know it’s not going well for them. Here are some gems I have seen:
– The quintessential statement came from Mika Brzezinski, who
actually said that Issa’s accusation “makes us all want to walk away and
ignore” the White House scandals.
– At the end of an interview with New York Senator Chuck Schumer on Sunday’s NBC
Meet the Press, moderator David Gregory teed up (that’s a gross understatement) the Democrat to lecture
Republicans on being too focused on the scandals plaguing the Obama
administration: “Do you have a warning for Republicans who want to make
the IRS and personal issues affecting the President the main theme of
Schumer eagerly proclaimed: “My warning to the Republicans is
look at 1998. All they did is spend their time on the impeachment of Bill
Clinton. And for the first time, the incumbent president didn’t lose seats in
the House….if they go too far, they will lose….if they emphasize it
too much they’re going to pay a price at the polls in 2014.
– Axelrod and Plouffe both tried to brush off the IRS scandal as an unfortunate
set of coincidences by arguing that a deliberate effort to punish conservatives
through the IRS would be “the stupidest thing you could have imagined” (Axelrod)
or “the dumbest political effort of all time.” (Such a meteoric fall in so little time on the intelligence scale from 2008. I think Axelrod is really saying that it only became stupid because they got caught. If they don’t get caught, they’re brilliant.)
We’re seeing how that the Democratic Party’s strongest 2016 POTUS candidate Hillary Clinton approval numbers are taking a beating because her handling of Benghazi. Of course, Democrats are protesting loudly about this as well. Now onto the Democratic Party hopes to get GOP aid with.
The GOP rush to impeach President Obama
You know, I don’t know what concerns me most, a few more years of President Obama or President Biden. Quite frankly, I think the GOP is going to milk the scandal cow for everything its worth. After all, the Obama Administration created all of them. I don’t think articles of impeachment get drafted unless a strong majority of Americans convict Obama with their verdict after all the information comes out of each scandal. I’ve seen some liberal bloggers and media talk about how GOP hatred of Obama is blinding them into calling for Obama’s impeachment. They are hoping for this but I don’t think that is going to happen. These investigations are going to dog Obama for the rest of his presidency.
The House caves and passes the Gang of 8 Immigration legislation
I had openly hoped that Ted Cruz would block the bill from coming to a floor vote sometime back. Chuck Schumer is now openly boasting that the bill will pass by July 4th (grandstanding Independence Day).
Democrats and Republicans alike recognized the political potency of the issue. The Senate, led by Democrats, is putting added pressure on the House, led by Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.
“Congressman Boehner is in a box. There are about 60 or 70 of his people who are against any immigration reform. But at the same time, he knows that the Republican Party will be consigned to a minority party for a generation if they’re anti-immigration,” Schumer said.
Talk about delusional. Boehner’s in the cat bird seat on this. Of course the Democratic Party wants this because that will mean a large portion of people added whom will be dependent on the government to make ends meet.
I remember back in the debt ceiling negotiations how Harry Reid tabled every GOP bill from even getting to committee. This wouldn’t have been good for Democratic candidates up for re-election in the Senate. So, I think it is time for John Boehner to give Harry Reid some political payback. If the Senate passes the bill, I want to see Boehner publicly table the Gang of 8 bill and state that the GOP is working on their own legislation. Seeing this probably would be even sweeter than seeing Ted Cruz push John McCain into a nuclear temper tantrum. Of course, seeing both of these events happen would be awfully sweet.
The House Committees cease their investigations into these multiple scandals
It’s hard seeing which hope the Democrats would like most to see happen. If anything, I think they covet #2 (Amnesty) the most. However, it looks like a nuclear bomb is about to go off in the IRS scandal and that may cause them to change their thinking in a hurry. It’s going to be very interesting from now until the 2014 elections.
