Queen Sheila, as only she can… claims that the Democrats never tried to impeach George W. Bush. There is this one little problem though… They did try to impeach Bush and guess who was a co-sponsor? You just can’t make these things up…
Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee argued Wednesday the Republican effort to sue President Obama is nothing but a veiled attempt to impeach him — something Democrats never did to President George W. Bush:
“I ask my colleagues to oppose this resolution for it is in fact a veiled attempt at impeachment and it undermines the law that allows a president to do his job. A historical fact: President Bush pushed this nation into a war it had little to do with apprehending terrorists. We did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had his authority. President Obama has the authority.”
Except former Rep. Dennis Kucinich did actually introduce a bill to impeach Bush in 2008 — and Jackson Lee actually was a cosponsor to the legislation.
You can see today’s video at the above link. Here is video of the hearings in 2008:
Since leading seems to be too much of a burden, Obama resorts to using brain dead pop culture lingo to try and shame opponents and fire up the lowest common denominator among his supporters. I wonder if Jay-Z or Beyonce fed him this latest line of “attack”?
(Reuters) – President Barack Obama took his criticism of congressional Republicans for confounding his agenda to a higher pitch on Wednesday, appealing to them to “stop just hatin’ all the time.”
Republicans in the House of Representatives are expected to vote on Wednesday to sue Obama on grounds that he overstepped his authority while implementing the Affordable Care Act, his signature health care law commonly called Obamacare.
“Stop being mad all the time. Stop. Stop. Stop just hatin’ all the time,” he said of Republicans, drawing loud cheers from a raucous crowd of about 1,500 in an ornate theater in Kansas City.
“They’re not happy that I’m president, but that’s OK. Come on!” he said, gesturing as if to welcome lawmakers to a table.
“I’ve only got a couple of years left, come on, let’s get some work done. Then you can be mad at the next president,” he said, chuckling.
I have an idea. If he would stop trying to fundamentally transform this country maybe we would find some stuff to work on. His idea of compromise is do it my way. Kind of like a pop culture millennial stomping his foot and blaming Bush…
This is shocking I tell you, absolutely shocking…

Ex-IRS Official Slammed Conservatives as ‘Crazies’ and ‘A**holes’
A former IRS official at the heart of the agency’s tea party controversy called some right-wing Republicans “crazies” and more in emails released Wednesday. Lois Lerner headed the IRS division that handles applications for tax-exempt status. In a series of emails with a colleague in November 2012, Lerner made two disparaging remarks about some members of the GOP, including one remark that was profane.
Rep. Dave Camp, who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee, released the emails Wednesday as part of his committee’s investigation. The Michigan Republican says the emails show Lerner’s “disgust with conservatives.” In one email, Lerner called some conservatives crazies. In the other, she called them “assholes.” The committee redacted the wording to “_holes” in the material it released publicly but a committee spokeswoman confirmed to the AP that the email said “assholes.”
Congressman Trey Gowdy to Hold First Benghazi Hearing
From Conservative Tribune:
Now, word comes from Townhall that the South Carolina Republican has announced to Catherine Herridge that he will kick off the committee’s first hearing in early September, probably within days of the actual two-year anniversary of the attacks.
The report follows “months of quiet investigation from the Committee,” and is likely to be welcome news to the family and friends of those killed and injured in the attacks.
Gowdy is the right man to lead the committee of seven Republicans and four Democrats. In other congressional hearings, he has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the truth and a disdain for political maneuvering that will serve him–and all Americans–well in getting to the truth behind this tragic affair.
As the anniversary of the attacks nears, Americans can find some reassurance in the thought that Gowdy’s committee continues to work diligently to ensure that the truth they deserve will finally come out.
Let me be succinct here. EVERY group has its nut jobs. Including my fellow evangelicals. I can assure you however, that of the THOUSANDS of fellow Christian friends that I have virtually none of them (outside of the black democrats) believe any of this nonsense.
WASHINGTON — The Rev. Lennox Yearwood punched his fist in the air as he rhythmically boomed into the microphone: “This is a moment for great leadership. This is a moment for our country to stand up. This is our moment.”
But Mr. Yearwood’s audience was not a church. It was the Environmental Protection Agency.
The E.P.A. on Tuesday held the first of two days of public hearings on its proposed regulation to cut carbon pollution from power plants, and mixed in with the coal lobbyists and business executives were conservative religious leaders reasserting their support for President Obama’s environmental policies — at a time when Republican Party orthodoxy continues to question the science of climate change.
More than two dozen faith leaders, including evangelicals and conservative Christians, are expected to speak at the E.P.A. headquarters in Washington by the time the hearings conclude on Wednesday.
“The science is clear,” said Lisa Sharon Harper, the senior director of mobilizing for Sojourners, an evangelical organization with a social justice focus. “The calls of city governments — who are trying to create sustainable environments for 25, 50 years — that’s clear.”
Ms. Harper was one of about 20 interfaith activists who quietly sang “Hallelujah” and Jewish spirituals in a prayer circle outside the environmental agency’s 12th Street entrance here on Tuesday. Mr. Yearwood and three other faith leaders spoke at the hearings on Tuesday. Some 20 others are to make remarks on Wednesday.
Remember when Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut and liberal heads exploded?
Cue Bob Beckel…
After the scorned runner-up on ABC’s “The Bachelorette” spilled the beans about what happened between the two ex-lovers in the show’s “fantasy suite,” longtime Democrat consultant Bob Beckel described star bachelorette Andi Dorfman by a term that got the political left outraged when Rush Limbaugh used it to describe Sandra Fluke.
Democrat Bob Beckel called “The Bachelorette” a slut on FOX News’ The Five on Tuesday.
When Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke, the then college student that demanded that America pay for her $3,000 birth control bill, the left mobilized massive boycott efforts against the conservative radio talk show king, attacking his advertisers relentlessly, demanding that they discontinue their sponsorship of his highly popular radio program.
You wonder why the democrats are the ones pushing the GOP to advance impeachment? Misdirection by the vulnerable.
Nearly 70% of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s handling of illegal immigration, and a plurality oppose any emergency funding to address the border crisis, according to a new national poll.
The Associated Press-GfK poll found that 68% disapprove of Obama on illegal immigration while only 31% approve. When asked if they “favor, oppose or neither favor nor oppose emergency spending by the federal government to improve living conditions for children currently being detained for crossing the border illegally and to allow deportation hearings for those children to proceed more quickly,” 38% of respondents opposed while 32% favored authorizing emergency funds.
Did Dingy Harry Reid miss an important memo?
From Western Journalism:
“Mr. President, our great country has many friends in the world, we’re proud of all the alliances we have,” Reid said. “But certainly, our deepest attachment is what we have with Israel. The United States and Israel have stood by each other in good times and bad times, in times of peace, in times of war. Right now our friends in the state of Israel are under attack. Hamas continues to indiscriminately fire thousands of rockets into Israel.”
“When Hamas fires these rockets, Hamas has no idea where they’ll land,” he continued. “Military installation, they hope; a daycare center, they don’t care; empty parking lot, they don’t care. They’re just firing these rockets indiscriminately.”
I guess they don’t have barns?
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explained that Hamas hides their military weapons among civilians due mainly to geography, not religious extremism or hatred of the state of Israel.
In an interview with Fusion TV, Clinton said “Hamas puts its missiles, its rockets in civilian areas; part of it is because Gaza is pretty small and it’s densely populated.”
At no time does Clinton mention the official charter of Hamas, a terrorist organization, which denies the right of Israel to exist and asks all Muslims to help “obliterate” it:
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”
