Yesterday I had a bit of a setback.  While doing physical therapy I reinjured my right leg, which I manage to sprain every few months.  As a result I’ve be4en in quite a bit of pain.  I worked through to do my PT today, however.  Otherwise, the relocate mele project is on hold for the weekend.

When I say the InsaniTEA in the following clip, I knew I had to pass it on.  Bear in mind tge long list of actual impeachable  crimes perpetrated by Crawford Caligula, Dead-eye ChickenHawk, and the rest of the Fourth Reich.

This makes it crystal clear that they are deathly afraid of running against Hillary in 2016.

  1. If ever there was evidence of the Republican/Teabagger plot to obstruct Mr Obama, follow the "Impeachment" train! With only 7 weeks into his presidency, impeachment comes up, but with no definitive reasons.  It would seem that the Republican/Teabaggers operate on the premise of "throw enough shit and some of it will stick".

    As to Benghazi, there is no doubt that this is an unfortunate loss of life.  However, where is the culpability of the Congress who determined budgets?  Further, Baby Bush sent over 4,000 US soldiers to their deaths in Iraq, an illegal war of aggression.  Where were the demands for impeachment of the Republican/Teabagger Prince of Death, Baby Bush?  Or of the King of Death, Chickenhawk Cheney?  There were none.

    I was amused at a MSNBC story this morning with Rand Paul, Idiot, son of Idiot, declaring that the Benghazi incident should preclude Hillary Clinton from holding higher office.  I think you're right TC, the Republican/Teabaggers are "deathly afraid of running against Hillary in 2016".  http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/05/11/rand-paul-benghazi-should-preclude-hillary-clinton-from-higher-office/

  2. Let the games begin!

  3. First, from a cogent Tweet:

    If the Benghazi hearings aren't politicizing a tragedy, why is the GOP fundraising off them with this ad

    Then, filed under IOKIYAR (It's OK If You're A Repubican)

    On President Obama's watch:

    Osama Bin Laden, the world's most sought after terrorist and mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, is killed.

     

    On President Bush's watch:

    January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.

    June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al Qaeda attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.

    October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of "Bali Bombings." No fatalities.

    February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.

    May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al Qaeda terrorists storm the diplomatic compound, killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.

    March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers. (I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name "David Foy." This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what's considered American soil.)

    July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.

    September 17, 2008. Sana'a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months

    • They are not interested in any of these attacks because they cannot discredit Pres. Obama with them. They are obstructionists with the single goal of keeping him from having success in his Presidency.

  4. Apparently the goose can lay all the eggs it wants racking up lots of deaths but the successor who inherited the hate cannot have any?

    Will continue to keep you in my prayers Tom.

  5. I guess people actually believe these "accusations" – forget about the Bush era emabassy raids, and to think these are enough reasons to bring this president to impeachment – these are really their own indictments that indicate their own challenged intellect – while it should be humorous and challenged by the democratic party – it seems that we don't have the guys in Congress to name them and call their bluff – how sad!

  6. TC, I think you are right, they are terrified of HIlary.  SoIneedaName posted all the embassy attacks that occurred under Bush, no Republican reared up to impeach him.  Keeping you in my thoughts and wishing you the very best.  Hang in there. Hugs, Edie 

  7. Excellent analysis and excellent video – on Care2 stars to everyone – and I wish I could do so on PP!  I thought Lynn had said it all for me – but the list that Nameless came up with is well worth reading and copying (I just wish I could remember it!). TC, Lynn, Edith and everyone are right – the Repuglicons are terrified of Hilary and are trying 'to get their retaliation in first'(!).

  8. Always remember….whenever the Reichwing gets loud and screaming for whatever it is at the moment….it is usually because they themselves want to do the exact same thing OR they are already doing it and want to deflect the blame or accountability for it. All that is going on is because of THEM and the bought off Great Betrayer who could not hold to liberal key points that he PROMISED to do and cannot or could not do because his Fascist overlords do not want them to happen. The Rethug Teabaggers ARE the FASCISTS and they are getting everything they want. Impeachment? That will not happen and HILLERY WILL RUN. Be afraid Reichwing….be very afraid.

  9. PS Tom, get better soon and stop hurting yourself…..dayum man…..we don't heal fast anymore LOL.

  10. Wow!  Thank you all for stopping in!a

  11. Ok, let's do impeachment with "no charges relating to the articles of impeachment"?  Really?  How's that gonna work when you have no charges?  How does this Benghazi thing get so much press on Fox but no where else?  Could it be that the Repubs are taking Benghazi wayyy out of control to stir up something, anything on Obama?  Certainly, that cannot be the case. [sarcasm off]

    While the Repubs are shitting bricks thinking that Hilary might run, and because she did a kick ass job at SoS, they are too paralyzed with fear to consider her run seriously.  Also they have no viable candidate to run against her, making them DOA in 2016.  We all know the Repubs can't think past their noses because they are so concentrated on taking us back to the 50's.  They should all be sent to some shit hole 3rd world country as ambassadors;  Obama may not be doing everything I like, but at least he can speak like an intelligent human and I now throw a lot less shit at the TV when he speaks.  Our current crop of congresscritters (R – off the range) has gone completely around the bend; they aren't even making sense anymore and they flip out at the tinest thing, showing that they are small minded people and none too bright.

  12. Hope you feel better soon Tom. These tin foil hats waste tax payer monies without benefit to the working poor Americans… :smile:
