What will be most interesting is how President Lemon reacts to having not just one legislative chamber in GOP hands, but both. All indications at this time point to a GOP takeover of the Senate.
As before, Boss Obama has promised to do what he can unilaterally; from what we’ve seen, many of those actions already implemented are of dubious legality.
Will Obama goad a GOP Senate into impeaching him? I certainly wouldn’t put it past him. But the GOP needs to be smart (unlike with Bill Clinton’s silly impeachment). They should let the president do as much extra-legal/constitutional stuff as possible … until outcry comes from other than the GOP and conservatives, however small.
The president, though incompetent, is not stupid. He knows any such movement or even talk about the “I” word will cause not only a political rift, but a racial one as well. His acolytes in the mainstream press will play up the race angle more than they already do routinely: “How will it look to world that we may impeach the first African-American president?” “How can the GOP hope to ever attract minorities after this?”
Probably the smartest strategy, though, no matter what Boss Obama does in the last two years of his term, is to do nothing. Absolutely nothing. Let Obama’s approval ratings continue to plummet right through 2016 so that a GOP president is virtually assured. He (or she) can then run on a “returning sanity and legality to the federal government” platform.Posted by Hube at October 25, 2014 09:17 AM | TrackBack
