"The genius of impeachment lay in the fact that it could punish the man without punishing the office."
Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. (1917-2007)
The Relentless Conservative is not a Ralph Nader fan. Never have been. He's a little on the fringe for me.
But Nader has recently made some bold statements which I can really get behind. Like impeaching Obama.
With Obama and his cast of incompetents "making whining demands" like "spoiled children," Nader calls the Obama reign "ObamaBush." Discussing the Solyndra and LightSquared scandals with all the venom of an anti-Capitalist, Conservative radical, Nader droned on about exactly how bad this President really is for America.
How ironic is it, that Obama is now being disparaged for exactly the type of greedy behavior and cronyism which the Liberals have always hurled at Conservatives? Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, move aside. And who can forget the Clinton cronyism where banks failed and many previously cabinet rank officials wound up in jail?
"The only remedy left in the Constitution is the impeachment remedy," Nader strongly observed, "unfortunately, the Framers never dreamed ... that when they separated the powers between executive, legislative and judicial, that one branch would give up its Constitutional authority, namely, Congress giving up its Constitutional authority to the President, we now have, increasingly, an elected dictatorship."
For once, Nader gets to the point and gets it right.
When even Maxine Waters and Nader are shrieking about Obama, it's high time the Obama supporters get over their excessive denial and man-up. America needs to pull together to reverse this gigantic mistake and right this foolhardy experiment in electing a man who was totally unqualified to hold our highest office.
"Impeachment is not a remedy for private wrongs; it's a method of removing someone whose continued presence in office would cause grave danger to the nation."
Charles Ruff (1939-2000)
