Dick Cheney says the calls for Barack Obama’s impeachment are a distraction
Regular readers of America’s Watchtower know how I feel about the recent calls for the impeachment of Barack Obama. Here is what I wrote last week about this issue in case you missed it.
Basically I believe that because there is no way in hell the Democratic controlled Senate would ever vote to convict Barack Obama on impeachment charges even if the House did vote to impeach him that this is an exercise in futility and a distraction. The Republicans would be better off focusing on the issues heading into the 2014 election. If they cannot win on the issues they simply do not deserve to win.
Apparently Dick Cheney agrees with me, here is what he has to say about impeachment:
“I‘ve met Sarah Palin a few times, I like her, I think she’s entitled to her opinion — say whatever she wants to say. My view would be, at this point, pushing for impeachment isn’t productive,” Cheney said Tuesday on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” when asked whether Palin is problematic for the GOP.
“I’m not prepared, at this point, to call for the impeachment of the president. I think he is the worst president of my lifetime. I fundamentally disagree with him. I think he’s doing a lot of things wrong. I’m glad to see House Republicans are challenging him, at least legally, at this point, but I think that gets to be a bit of a distraction just like the impeachment of Bill Clinton did,” the former vice president said.
I happen to believe that he got this one right, however in general I would like to see Dick Cheney shut the hell up from now until after the election is over.
If there is one person more hated by the left than George Bush it is Dick Cheney, if there is one person who can motivate a lethargic and unenthusiastic Democratic base before the election it is also Dick Cheney.
While I agree with Dick Cheney in this instance I think if he continues to talk before the election it will only serve to motivate the Democratic base and will do nothing to help the conservatives take over. In the end it may have the exact opposite effect. Dick Cheney is also a distraction…
