  •  Magical Thinking (3+ / 0-)

    a process by which the GOPers/conservobots/Baggers make their wishes come true.  The republican party has lost the war with reality and Impeachment would only be a quick vote and - whooooosh - the Bad Black Man in the White House would be gone.

    If you ask any of the Impeachers what would happen next, I'm fairly certain it would be, "Oh, we'd have a republican back in the White House".

    It doesn't occur to the Impeachers that the Vice President would take office and in this case, that would be Joe Biden.

    When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day? George Carlin

      instinct-driven that they don't think ahead. They react to hormonal prompts and feel adulation or antagonism rather randomly. Being negative is a habit. Pessimism actually serves the cons well. Those who expect nothing will not be disappointed.

    •  They know they cannot actually impeach him... (4+ / 0-)

      They just want the circus show that comes with it.  They want the hours and hours of negative media coverage explainig why President Obama faces impeachment and they want to show themselves as the champions of law and moral conduct.

      They keep doing this because it keeps working.  Look at how Anthony Weiner was treated and forced out by his own party and look at how the moral values party accepted David Vitter or Mark Sanford's serious apology with apparently no consequences.  Look at how President Clinton was treated over a consentual affair but George Bush was given a pass for invading a soveriegn nation based on known falsehoods.

      Liberals do not fight back so why wouldn't they punch us in the gut every chance they get?
