I’m less and less convinced that Boehner wants the craziness to go too far and I’ll bet you anything he’s not listening to Newt. Anyway, this is nuts:
“I believe the Republicans next week should pass a resolution instructing the president to enforce the law and to obey his own constitutional oath, and they should say if he fails to do so that they will zero out [defund] the office of attorney general and take other steps as necessary until the president agrees to do his job,” said Gingrich. “His job is to enforce the rule of law and for us to start replacing the rule of law with the rule of Obama is a very dangerous precedent.”
He didn’t call for immediate impeachment hearings, but didn’t rule them out if Obama balks at any congressional demands to enforce the law.
I hope there isn’t a government shut down because, while it would help Democrats politically, it word hurt a lot of working people. But if these nuts want to try impeachment again, I say “bring it on”.
This week, Republicans overreached on union-busting. They had every whore and sociopath in the national media — which is by far the majority of the national media — on their side. And they’re losing.
Try impeachment, just try. See what happens.
