Norquist: Impeach Obama over taxes?

posted at 4:00 pm on January 28, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

Grover Norquist is a busy guy, what with heading up Americans for Tax Reform and making regular media appearances around the country in support of tax sanity. He normally remains focused on that one key (and admittedly important) issue, but on occasion he can wander off into brief bouts of hyperbole. That may be what took place when he sat down for an interview with National Journal. He starts off displaying an unusually satisfied tone, saying that 2011 was actually a pretty good year for tax hawks, and he expects more of the same in 2012.

Even Obama is not going to want to raise taxes, because it’s an election year. He came up with this idea for the one-year tax holiday so he could claim that he’s for a tax cut. Mind you, it’s a temporary tax cut, but he does not want to run as a tax increaser. I think we’re in reasonably good shape.

Between now and November, I believe we will see a one-year extension of the FICA tax [cut]. I believe we will see the extension of [the break on] depreciation spending. And then the third one that you could have is repatriation. If I was Obama’s political consultant, I’d have put repatriation on the table when he extended the Bush-era tax cuts by two years [in 2010]. The estimates are that it would bring $6 [billion] to $800 billion back.

But the conversation took a bit of a turn when the reporter raised the possibility that Barack Obama might still win a second term. Were that to happen, the possibility certainly exists that he would allow some or all of the Bush era tax cuts to expire. What then?

Obama can sit there and let all the tax [cuts] lapse, and then the Republicans will have enough votes in the Senate in 2014 to impeach. The last year, he’s gone into this huddle where he does everything by executive order. He’s made no effort to work with Congress.

Amazingly, National Journal doesn’t take the bait on that provocative bit of speculation, so Norquist doesn’t have the opportunity to expand on it. I rather wish they had, since it would be interesting to see precisely which grounds he thinks the Senate could use to attempt the removal of Barack Obama from office. The simple act – or, to be more precise, lack of action – of allowing a legally passed set of tax cuts with a built in expiration date to lapse hardly sounds like something which would qualify as High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Further, signing executive orders is clearly not outside the bounds of the office, nor is being obstinate about “working with Congress.”

It might be safer to assume that Grover was just taking a moment to pose a hypothetical extreme while stressing the importance of electing a Republican this fall to avoid disaster on the tax front. If it’s anything more than that, we’ll need him to follow up. Either way, stressing lower taxes and reduced spending is a far more profitable line of thinking than daydreaming about impeachment hearings.

He’s probably referring to the non-recess appointments when he says “The last year, he’s gone into this huddle where he does everything by executive order”. Not sure if that’s an impeachable offence, but if we lose this election I say we go for it.

sadsushi on January 28, 2012 at 4:19 PM

Obama has raised taxes – and more than any other President since the II WW.

Of course, idiots like Norquist don’t understand that because they’re too focused on tax rates.

But the proper level of taxation is measured by the level of spending. Sooner or later, someone will need to pay for it. The problem is that people like Norquist obsess with lower “current day” taxes and not with what really matters.

joana on January 28, 2012 at 4:20 PM

If you’re siding with Obama over Norquist where does that put you?

Obama should have already been impeached for any of a 1000 reasons.

sauldalinsky on January 28, 2012 at 4:23 PM

Grover Norquist: “It’s very important to recognize that each of these faiths [he is talking about the abomination of Islam with it's hand-in-glove abomination of Shariah] is completely consistent with the U.S. Constitution and a free and open society.”. By this one statement alone, and beyond shadow of doubt, Norquist, who knows enough about Islam to know far better, has revealed himself as a liar and an enemy of humanity. Norquist also has said that Republicans “must marginalize Islamophobia” within their party and it’s members and “knock that stuff down [meaning silence opposition to Islam, per Shariah Law] and just make it clear that there’s no place for that [meaning Freedom of Speech and opposition to tyranny] in the party of Reagan.” “Islamophobia” is, of course, a smear word designed to be used as a club by even the mentally feeble to try to silence opposition to the abomination to womankind and disgrace to mankind totalitarian system known as Islam. Ronald Reagan strongly opposed totalitarian systems and there is no doubt in my mind that he would cast Grover Norquist out of the Republican Party, as would Abraham Lincoln.
The closest thing there actually is to an “Islamophobia” is the fear on the part of Muslims and their auxiliaries and enablers that the truth will be told about that vile barbaric crime against humanity that is Islam, and it’s founder, Muslim’s “Perfect Man”, the murdering, thieving, torturing, enslaving, child raping, sadistic pervert, The Subhuman Monster Who Walked The Earth, called Mohammad. That is the closest thing to what “Islamophobia” really is. If this was the 1930′s Norquist would probably be condemning opposition to the Nazis, and trying to smear those who would criticize Nazism, by throwing the term “Naziophobia” at them. Norquist might as well wear a swastika.

The more difficult prong of the pincer is the Right, but what better way to insinuate yourself into the GOP than by championing lower taxes? Grover Norquist is not what he appears to be, but the deep thinkers in the GOP are too lazy and incurious to pull off his mask.

Sounds like hes saying if he lets these tax cuts lapse the American people will vote a republican super majority in the Senate. They can than impeach for something,be it his recess appointments, his plan to let guns go to mexico and then use that to get gun control or his payoffs to buddies at GM, Solyndra and Petrobras. The impeachment wouldn’t be because of ther tax lapse.

Rbastid on January 28, 2012 at 5:26 PM

I don’t Grover was serious about the impeachment thing.

I think he was pointing more to the fact that if a second-term Obama lets the Bush-era tax cuts run out without proposing a suitable replacement, there will be 67 Pub Senators come January, 2015, and that’s something Obama will not want to face. Impeachment would be the least of his worries at that point; a 2/3 Pub Senate implies a 2/3 Pub House (or close). The last time we saw anything like that a Democratic Senate was running roughshod over Gerry Ford.

The Dems want new taxes, but they won’t do it without getting Pub fingerprints on the tax bill. Otherwise it’s just plain political suicide. I think that was Grover’s point.

AT CPAC this year, Grover Norquist told a George Soros publication that Islam “is completely consistent with the U.S. Constitution and a free and open society,” a statement that reveals either a profound lack of understanding of Islamic law, or a conscious effort at deception.

jersey taxpayer on January 28, 2012 at 5:41 PM

You’re incredibly naive. Are you competent in simple economics? Can you name the last deep balance sheet recession that witnessed a decrease in the budget deficit?

The problem isn’t that the deficit grew during a deep recession, which is a historic inevitability. The problem was that this country decided to spend without abandon over the past decade while ignoring a growing deficit that was partially hidden by the effects of debt-fueled growth. At the same time, tax rates were lowered so far that deep tax cuts were no longer an option when the economy nearly collapsed and a huge boost to consumer spending was needed most. It all comes down to a old phrase- you have to save up for a rainy day.

But I agree there’s been a general political failure to attack the deficit. Obama should have fully backed and endorsed the suggestions of the bipartisan deficit commission. Some members of the GOP need to accept the wisdom of a grand bargain that accepts some higher taxes in exchange for real entitlement reform. Yes, many fail to understand that you can’t address the deficit when taxes are at historic lows- this is no secret to Wall Street:

1. Ignored and side-stepped court orders involving BP imbroglio

2. Recess (not) appointments

3. Allowing Justice to thumb its nose at Congress

4. Allowing Fast & Furious to take place on his watch, and then silence on the obfuscation and dereliction taking place at DOJ

5. Overstepped his Constitutional authority by leaps and bounds with legislation through regulation, highly questionable executive orders, and other means…

Feel free to add to the list, this is just off of the top of my head

……………………

but it’ll never happen, Grover. Not a great idea, unless there is a Jugeared Administration left in 2014 AND the (R)s take the other side of Congress. Even then, it’s highly unlikely.

All that said, I believe Mr. Norquist’s point, however awkwardly made, was that Ojesus will be guaranteeing a Republican majority if he lets the cuts expire in the fashion to which he referred.

Anyone that takes Norquist as a conservative is not a serious individual. That he has anything to do with CPAC is a very bad indication of the sponsoring organization. Islam is not compatible with a free and open society. Every Islamic society is exactly the opposite.

Brayam:

NY Times:
“On average, three years after the four deepest previous recessions started, real GDP was 7.6% higher than the pre-recession level. During the Obama recovery, real GDP is up only 0.1%. Forty months after the start of the 1953, 1957, 1973 and 1981 recessions, total employment was on average 4.7% higher than the pre-recession peaks, while total employment today is still down 4.7%—that’s a total employment gap of 13.9 million jobs.

“If we had matched the 1982 recovery rate, today annual per-capita income would be $4,154 higher than before the recession—that’s an extra $16,600 for a family of four—and some 15.7 million more Americans would have jobs. That’s enough jobs to employ 100% of the 13.5 million Americans currently classified as unemployed. In addition, we would have provided jobs for 30% of both the 2.4 million discouraged or marginally attached workers and the 4.8 million who have totally dropped out of the work force since January 2008.

You’re right, spending has been at its highest point in recent years- some of that is the consequence of higher spending But in no way similar to the 40% increase in federal spending that occurred between 2000 and 2006.

You can’t assume that the government can lower the deficit by decreasing spending in the middle of a balance sheet recession. The Japanese tried to lower spending in similar economic conditions, and their deficit actually increased. I’m just pointing out that there’s no obvious, easy way out.

bayam on January 28, 2012 at 7:02 PM

Impeachment will not happen for three simple reasons:

First - No one in Congress is really opposed to what Obama is doing…they all benefit from his actions (for now).

Second – If impeachment articles were filed, we would find ourselves in a war or overnight Martial Law.

Third – Those who benefit from all of the free stuff would riot and burn their neighborhoods down.

(Funny thing about ‘free stuff’…we just left Sam’s and watched people lining up for free samples. My wife commented that many people buy the Sam’s membership so the can get free samples…funny how the entitlement mind works…they are paying an annual membership due so they can get ‘free stuff’…idiots.)

He even committed acts BEFORE getting into office that are worth impeaching and throwing the bum out over, not limited to but including his political rally in a foreign nation to foreigners (perhaps the most repulsive political act of malice that one can perform), his intentionally deactivation of the AVS credit check to get himself illegal campaign dough, the money that his campaign funneled to ACORN (and intentionally misrecorded as “lighting expenses”), the auction of his old Senate seat (yeah, anyone with a brain knows that Barky was deeply involved) … and then we move on to the MANY impeachable acts he’s committed since being in office (illegally, which is another article).

Nothing to impeach 0 on? Oh, how about:

Fast & Furious
Solyndra
Falsifying data on Gulf oil spill
fake birth certificate

For starters

That’s implying that the Republicans had the guts to impeach him in the first place.

Problem is, they cave so much, you’d think they were expert spelunkers.

Impeachment doesn’t work.

See: Andrew Johnson and Billy Jeff Clinton.

Just vote the s.o.b. Obama out for proven incompetence.

Talking about a Barack second term and what to do then is self-defeating silliness, Grover.

Andrew Johnson wasn’t impeached. Bill Clinton was. You’d better make sure you know what “impeachment” is before you go shooting your mouth off and making stupid blanket statements.

First, he may not get reelected which is my preferred dream. Other than that, I’ll go with the impeachment thingy.

If there was a snowball’s chance in you-know-where of the Senate voting to remove Obama, then I, too, would call for the impeachment of Obama. But the democrats in the Senate will never vote guilty on one of their own.

Clinton was convicted of lying to a Federal judge and the democrats in the Senate voted against finding him guilty. Talk about your partisanship! That Senate vote told me all I needed to know about democrats. They will destroy all that stands before them rather than admit one of their own did wrong.

Look at the ethics investigation in the House. There are several democrats up on charges. Their investigations have been going on for years. Has any democrat been judged yet? Nope; never will be; not as long as there is one democrat in the House.

Obama could commit murder and he would allowed to finish his term of office before being arrested. Yet let a Republican jaywalk and all the fury of the MSM will be focused on removing that Republican and send him packing.

Vote ABO. Vote for the grilled cheese sandwich if you must but in any case, OMG (Obama Must Go!)

Someone please give BO a BJ so we can impeach him.

Impeach Obama and you make a martyr out of him. Is that what you want? IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT?!? /Malone
