Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich takes exception to President Obama’s clear and indisputable violation of his oath of office as he personally declares the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and directs the Department of Justice to cease all effort to defend it. While stopping short of actually calling for Obama’s impeachment Newt makes the following observation, “if a “President Sarah Palin” had taken a similar action, there would have been immediate calls for her impeachment.”
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has made it abundantly clear over the last few years that he is no model of courage or pillar of conservative strength or virtue, in fact he is pretty much the poster boy for wishy washy wherever the wind blows politician. So while he very correctly note that were a “President Sarah Palin” to take a similar action she would be facing articles of impeachment within hours, it’s also not surprising that Newt falls far short of actually calling for President Obama’s impeachment.
That he or any other so called Republican elected Representative would make such an obvious observation yet fail to follow it to it’s logical conclusion simply demonstrates the extent of the moral cowardice and lack of leadership inherent in the Republican Party. In the 2010 election the American people did not give the Republican party a mandate to do anything, they gave them one last chance to remain a viable political body representing the average conservative American tax paying citizen.
The Republican Leadership seems bound and determined to do every thing they can to squander that opportunity. Majority Leader John “The Cry-baby” Boenher should be publicly saying this is the one step to far for President Obama. Instead he will no doubt ignore Obama’s clear and indisputably impeachable offense and pretend that he has more important things to attend to. If the GOP leadership doesn’t get a clue damned soon they will join the Whig’s in the waste basket of history.
