McCain: No, I’m not calling for Obama’s impeachment

posted at 8:41 pm on July 8, 2014 by Allahpundit

It’s rare that I get an actual answer to one of my exit questions, but here you go.

One of the fun things about Palin’s impeachment op-ed is how much grief it’s going to cause ol’ Mav, who palpably hates tea partiers and would surely dismiss her as a “wacko bird” along with Paul and Cruz if he wasn’t stuck defending his decision to make her his running mate. As it is, let’s look forward to a tense, constipated moment the next time he’s interviewed on TV when he’s inevitably asked about what she wrote and he’s forced to croak out a polite “I respect her opinion” between gritted teeth.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who ran for president in 2008 with Palin as his running mate, didn’t have much to say about her call for Obama’s impeachment.

“I always respect other people’s opinions,” McCain told The Huffington Post during a hallway interview at the Capitol.

The Arizona senator said he hadn’t read Palin’s column yet and hedged on making any judgments about it before reading it. Still, he distanced himself from her stance.

“Am I proposing that the president be impeached? No,” he said.

Searching out McCain after Palin’s op-ed went viral online was an easy call for HuffPo, but if they’re smart, they won’t stop there. Like I said earlier, the point of pushing impeachment isn’t to make it happen — it won’t happen, purely by dint of the numbers in the Senate — but to set up a new conservative litmus test for Republicans. If you’re really opposed to Obama’s executive power grabs, especially on immigration, you’ll support impeachment as a matter of principle whether or not it can succeed. If I were a lefty blogger eager to make Republican senators squirm, I’d put that question to all the usual squishes: Start with Lindsey Graham, McCain’s top crony, and then work your way through McConnell and Cornyn, the Senate leadership, and the blue- and purple-staters like Mark Kirk, Susan Collins, and Rob Portman. If anyone says they support impeachment, bam — you’ve got an angle. “GOP INCHING CLOSER TO IMPEACHING FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT.” If they all decline to impeach, bam — you’ve got an angle. “GOP CIVIL WAR OVER IMPEACHING FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT.” It’s easy content. Like Rosie O’Donnell babbling about 9/11.

Exit question: If we did impeach Obama, would President Biden be any better on amnesty? Remember, this is a guy who thinks illegals are “already Americans.”

No. Pursuing impeachment would be pointless. The GOP has nowhere close to a two-thirds majority, and even if by some miracle it was successful it would only shuffle around the idiots in this administration. It wouldn’t cure the disease.

The cure, if there is going to be one, is the 2016 election.

Not to mention she dragged his decaying carcass across the finish line in 2008 so that it wasn’t a 49 state landslide. She did it again in 2010 by dragging his rinotard carcass to victory.

There’s no reason to think that obama will leave office willfully after the 2016 election, or that he will even “allow” the 2016 election to take place.

Sarah has done America a great service by making the subject of obama’s IMPEACHMENT headline news. WE must talk about it, and discuss the many crimes that he has committed – and the many MORE crimes that he is likely to commit.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Dear elected Republican officeholders,

You know this famous quote: All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

Your “Do Nothing” option is OFF the table. The Mississippi Senate Primary runoff on June 28th showed the GOP establishment (GOPe) is owned by their large donors and their “Elites” agenda. YOU can change this by acting en masse quickly to publicly demand the non-elected GOP officials denounce Cochran and demand his withdrawl from the race. But if you believe you can continue to “Do Nothing”, WE have an option you won’t like.

On June 29th on Hot Air, I noticed one of our eternally patient, true conservatives on that site had joined the Let.It.Burn camp – the view there is nothing to be done to stop this country’s fall – which resulted in me having an epiphany.

The GOPe is perfectly happy with Let.It.Burn because it’s passive rather than active in nature. They expect it to cost the Democrats more net votes than the GOPe candidates and they just ran their “proof of concept” test case on how to defeat true conservatives.

So now it it time to change from the passive Let.It.Burn … … and to an all encompassing, everywhere on the map voting against ANY GOPe candidate running for anything from “dog catcher to U.S. Senator” as long as the Republican Party Establishment lets stand the Mississippi outcome from June 28th.

Or in a shorter, specifically targeting term you can relate to …

Burn.It.Down

PolAgnostic on July 8, 2014 at 9:10 PM

Of course there’s enough to impeach him, and of course no one will seriously try to do it.

This is more about tweaking the mamby-pamby RINOs.

After Mississippi, Palin and others don’t car about the GOP. Not really. So speak the truth, and don’t worry if it makes other uncomfortable.

PS — Suing instead of impeaching makes Boehner look like a wuss.

Shotgun Messiah on July 8, 2014 at 9:11 PM

For me, McCain outspent his POW card years ago, and for all his caving and sucking up to Libs in the Senate since arriving there, he has brought me to the point where now I can’t even thank him for his service to the country, something very few veterans and current warriors could ever cause me not to do.

Meople on July 8, 2014 at 9:19 PM

I am a new convert to what I have been calling Let It Burn .

My thinking goes like this:

The most damage to this country is done when:
1) The President is a Leftist
2) Congress is closely split between parties
3) The GOP has enough liberals willing to be accomplices to Leftist causes

That’s what we have now.

Let it Burn
to me means vote the GOP RINOs out. Allow the Democrats to have all three branches of government, but elect a conservative block that will not give the Leftists “bi-partisan” cover for stupid ideas.

The result is to get rid of the GOP lifers, scare the crap out of RINOs, and force the blame squarely onto the shoulders of the Leftists. The Leftists will either have to slow down these “fundamental changes” or they will destroy the underpinnings of this country too quickly to replace our system with anything that will allow them to remain in power.

The damage they’ve done so far has been done either with a claim of bi-partisanship or over the “obstructionist House”. Take these excuses away and make the Leftists own the healthcare system, VA, economy and foreign affairs outright. Their policies will burn everything to the ground.

And by all means, let’s get that guillotine assembled.

When my son was just starting high school, two of his “buddies” decided they could bully him. I met with the Vice Principal who promised to “keep an eye on the situation”.

That worked for 2.5 days.

Then I sent a message via one of my son’s true friends to the two “badasses”

The message he delivered?

“I am willing to DIE for my children. Go home and ask your father if he is willing to die for you.”

The bullying stopped and NEVER happened again.

Our first grandchild was born a few months ago to my daughter, who now understands my message as she never could before.

As I said above: The “Do Nothing” option is OFF the table.

Flake amd McCain are both worthless RINO obama waterboys.

See http://www.senatorflake.com for all the ways he has sold out conservatives, and http://www.firemccain.com for a summary of juan Carlos McShame’s treason.

No, no, a thousand times no.

Focus on a move to impeach Obama now will galvanize and energize not only the Dems who follow politics, but many low-info voters, who’ll only hear that “evil repubs are after the first iconic black president, don’tcha know.” No upside for Obama opponents at least until after 2014 elections . . . Oh, and, just for now, I’d like Sarah Palin to be please shush.

Someone should list all of the impeachable things Obama has done and then ask McCain, if it was a Republican president who had done those things….if it was George W Bush who had done those things….would he support impeachment. The answer is, of course, self evident.

If he had half the testicular fortitude as his running mate…he’d be president!

McShame is the political equivalent of pond scum. Once entrenched very hard to get rid of. Next up: McShame for Killary, 2016

The cure, if there is going to be one, is the 2016 election.

There is no cure. This country is dead and gone.

If the objection to impeachment isn’t that Obama doesn’t deserve it, but that the jury is rigged, what an indictment of the entire Congress – both those who would never vote to impeach, and those who yield to that corruption by refusing to try.

Maybe we should stop electing old, senile morons.

Well, in his case that’s a natural error.

If the House impeached Obama this year or early next year, would Senate Democrats take a hit for having to lie for and protect Obama during his trial, right before the 2015 Congressional elections?

huckleberryfriend on July 8, 2014 at 10:00 PM

There are no 2015 Congressional Elections. They’re held every two years, in the even year: 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018…

You are probably right that an impeachment movement would galvanize the Opposition, but the lack of one doesn’t help our side’s morale, either. I think the best course is to keep pushing the various investigations into government misconduct (IRS, VA, etc.) They will provide fuel for an empeachment effort, after the elections. Meanwhile, it keeps the Dems in bad smell with the electorate; a very good thing for us.

Why impeach your good byddy. After all, you voted for him.

Arrest the whole Congress and put the in prison for not doing their job after swearing to uphold the Constitution.
