  •  That's bullshit. (0+ / 0-)

    It doesn't fucking matter who is in office or what party s/he belongs to. If Obama is as corrupt as this diary alleges, then he should face impeachment.

    What I don't understand is why those of you who believe this to be true, who believe that Obama is wholly corrupt, why you don't openly call for his impeachment.

    It doesn't make any sense. Not only that, but it's completely cowardly. It's really weak to sit here, day after day, saying that Obama is weak and a lackey and corrupt and then doing nothing about it. How the fuck does it make any sense to call someone weak and then sit here and do nothing about it?

      be impeached I'll take all of that with a grain of salt.

      If you really don't understand why that is then I think you really need to learn how to read.  As I noted, the alternative is obviously worse.  And all that calls for impeachment would get anyone is mocking and accusations of racism.  Quit being so obviously disingenuous.

      Because calling for impeachment does what exactly? We know it won't happen, and we know for goddamn sure that the Dems would never impeach him, so you're calling people cowards for not doing something that could never happen.  That's not cowardly, that's common sense.  We can't even put anyone on trial for torture and we're going to impeach a president for something one of his nominees has done?  Not likely.

        money where your mouth is. If you believe Obama is either incompetent or willfully corrupt, then I don't understand why you don't call for his impeachment.

        There's really no excuse.

          Babble on and pretend like that wouldn't get someone banned here, and also pretend like it would solve the problem. I don't know that Obama is corrupt in the way you mean, but the system is certainly fucked up enough that no one has been tried for a broad program of torture,  Pretending like this happened in a vacuum is just absurd.  Calling for the impossible isn't helpful, especially when it won't fix anything.  For all the problems with Obama there are no better alternatives.

          Obama being corrupt.  We don't know if he knows about this clause in the contract or not.

          But, if you don't see the systemic problems, and if you think people can just go out and make enough money to affect the political process then you clearly don't. the you'll be the sort who thinks it's always individuals to blame.  Sam idiotic nonsense as the GOP has been pushing for years.

          •  Oh please. (1+ / 0-)

            He's either corrupt or incompetent. President's can be impeached for incompetence. Hell, President's can be impeached for wearing mismatching socks if a majority of the House is willing to go through with it.

            Obama is the President of the United States. He's not some desk lackey who didn't get the memo.

            If you believe, and it sounds like you do, that Obama is a corrupt, willing co-conspirator in the perpetration of a fraud on the American public, then you have absolutely no excuse not to call for his impeachment.

            None.
