At a town-hall meeting in Muskogee Civic Center in Oklahoma a dangerous question was posed to Senator Tom Coburn, and the Senators response provoked an angry and frightened response from former adviser to President Barack Insane Obama. That question and it’s response?
The angry and frightened response.
“That was his considered legal opinion, as an obstetrician,” Axelrod quipped on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “It’s plainly absurd, but it’s worse than absurd … I think he was way out of bounds.”
Axelrod said Coburn’s remarks, made Wednesday at a town-hall meeting in his home state, are representative of a “kind of virus” that has seized the country.
Without intending to do so, Axelrod, in the very midst of telegraphing what his and the Marxist Democrats greatest fear is, also admitted that the question is anything but trivial. Moreover that it isn’t a question being asked only by a small number of far right wing activists, but is in fact a question being asked so often and by so many people that the very question and the demand for it’s answer have taken on, to use David Axelrods very own words, viral proportions.
Now everyone who uses the internet knows what the term “going viral” means. It’s where a story, article, picture or video suddenly begins being viewed by a geometrically increasing audience. One day the story, article, picture or video has 1000 page views, and the next it has 100,000 the next 1,000,000 and then it’s up to 10,000,000 or 100,000,000. Suddenly the entire internet is reading or viewing and talking about the story, article, picture or video.
Exactly why the question of Impeachment is being asked over and over again regarding Barack Insane Obama might seem hard to answer, if… You a) have the IQ of a petrified grapefruit, b) have been living under a rock 100 miles from the nearest radio, television or internet connection or c) are a Marxist Democrat. If you just happen to be none of the above, then the question really isn’t that difficult to answer.
Tim Brown over at Freedom Outpost has a great reference article posted that kind of puts a brutal perspective to why the question keeps being asked, and why it’s “Going Viral” as David Axelrod admits that it is.
The following is a contribution from Dan from Squirrel Hill. The original title of the article is “Obama supporters will go hysterical over this well sourced list of 252 examples of his lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, etc.” it’s lengthy, but is a ‘one-stop shop’ for all the dirty details on the Obama presidency. Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, high levels of transparency. Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.
Andrew C. McCarthy tackles the question that Senator Coburn every so carefully side-stepped.
As it happens, both Coburn and Axelrod are wrong. Impeachment is not a legal matter; it is a political remedy. But law is how the Left strangles politics. Alexis de Tocqueville foresaw the enervation of democratic society at the hands of the Left’s vast, hyper-regulatory administrative state. In parallel, the political vitality of a once self-determining culture is suffocated by the ubiquity of the litigator’s trick bag.
There was a time, not so long ago, when we understood that antecedent law cannot predict and control every great public question. We relied, instead, on the discretion of political officials, who would calculate America’s vital interests and act accordingly — not because they were good guys, although we hoped they were, but because they were accountable to voters and to other political actors whose duty it was to check their excesses.
Senator Coburn said more perhaps than he intended to when he said this.
“Barack Obama is personal friend of mine. He became my friend in the Senate but that does not mean I agree in any way with what he’s doing or how he’s doing it. And I quite frankly think he’s in a difficult position he’s put himself in, and if it continues, I think we’re going to have another constitutional crisis in our country in terms of the presidency,” Coburn concluded.
While it might have just slipped out in one of those Freudian unguarded moments, the problem is, that he actually said what a lot of people are thinking. David Axelrod confirmed it when admitting that the3 question was going viral.
The problem of course comes down not to what Senator Coburn or David Axelrod said, they were both speaking re-actively and defensively, no, the problem is what Texas Senator Ted Cruz said when the same question was poised to him.
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is in trouble, naturally. Being an unapologetic conservative, tea-party stalwart, and happy warrior has made him the preferred punching bag of the media and other Beltway dinosaurs — their hysteria meter always tells you who worries them most. Asked at a conservative gathering in the Houston suburbs “why don’t we impeach” the president, Cruz respectfully replied that this was a “good question.” He then gave a good answer: “We don’t have the votes.”
And there it is right there. A Presidential administration so corrupt that it makes the infamous and legendary corruption in Tammany Hall under Boss Tweed look like a troop of sainted Boy Scouts. Yet the Republican majority in Congress can’t muster the courage, morality or integrity to bring forward articles of Impeachment against a President that has violated the US Constitution repeatedly and abused his presidential authority with a willful forethought of malice and mendaciousness never before witnessed in the entire history of this Constitutional Republic.
This dereliction of duty on the part of the Republicans in Congress can really only be seen in one solitary light. They do not have the votes, because the majority of elected Republican representatives are every bit as corrupt as the Obamanation administration that they are actively and willfully protecting.
At the end of the day though, the question continues to be asked, and the Marxist Democrats, and the Democrats pretending to be Republicans continue to telegraph their greatest fear, the fear that the calls for OIbama’s Impeachment will continue to go viral, and will continue to grow ever louder to the point where even the supposedly Conservative Republican Leadership will be unable to shrug them off and will have to act on them.
