Be Specific

I hear a lot of noise about impeaching the president of the United States from the right but I've yet to see any specifics. Where are the high crimes and misdemeanors?

We have a " representative democracy"type of government which allows the president to use executive orders.These executive orders are constitutional and have been used by several presidents.Learning the difference  between executive orders and those orders from an actual dictator will go far in developing a good discussion.

A poster said Obamacare should be defunded because it will cost us plenty in the long run.That's fine,everyone is entitled to their opinion but where's the evidence of that? I've seen and written about evidence that contradicts  that statement.

There's no short cuts to regaining the presidency after a loss. You still have to convince at least 51% that your policies and candidates are better.

It's going to take more than a few signs saying you want your country back. What does that mean? We just had a fair election where Americans voted in President Obama. Is there another America?

People are just mimicking what they hear on TV. Sounds like a bunch of parrots to me.
The sad fact is, that most people just don't know how the government works, and I have to say, that I'm one of them. I've learned a lot in the last few years, but I still have much to learn.

It amazes me how someone can post something ,(using their real name )that's not even remotely true. Their friends ,relatives and neighbors now have evidence of that.

I think a lot of us are learning as we go along. I'm glad Congress brings out all these arcane rules that we weren't taught in school...:-)

Even if I was taught in school, Government wasn't something I was interested in back then. I learned what I had to, to take the tests, and then promptly put it out of my mind.
Come to thinking about it, I did that with a lot of subjects. :D

I love how one of the protesters in the Advocate story called President Obama a dictator. I guess she doesn't consider that if he truly were a dictator, she wouldn't have been allowed to stand more than a second on that corner!

As to the woman who posted Hillary will never be president--I hope she's current on her heart pills. She might just need them!

That are just laughable.

What I truly don't understand is how my life is so much worse off now, under President Obama, that it was before he came into office.
What exactly has changed? I know I have just as many freedoms as I did before. I can actually see a huge improvement over the last President.

Edith Ann said...

Exactly Born--they keep spouting stuff like "Just wait until he takes your freedoms (read gun) away".



Mike said...

They have forgotten the financial crash of 2008
The Iraq fiasco
And President Bush left office with our country losing 750,000 a month.
The GDP was -9%

Come on Advocate,as a poster said "4 angry people with signs does not make a protest and in most cities not even a story.".....I know I could easily get four people with pro-Obama
signs but you would not send out a camera crew nor would I expect you to.

Edith Ann said...

But it stirs the local yokels up! 21 comments plus at 9:30 p.m.

Wonder if the Advocate is going to cover the Battleground Texas visitors coming next week. That will be news because they are not visiting every town and burg in the state.

BIGJ said...

Don't these fools realize what hell, what damage they would cause if they impeach the president? The aftermath of the Trayvon Martin should be a wake up call to the social conservatives. Don't touch the President and don't treat blacks and Hispanic like children.

BIGJ said...

EdithAnn .

When s the Battleground Texas folks coming and when? Have you informed the Advocate?

Joy fryou

You're right EA,I overreacted the four protesters exercised their freedom of speech rights and that should be applauded and VA was right for covering the event.

I'm sure the VA will cover the Battleground Texas event,

No Joy Fryou, Pres. Nixon was not impeached; he resigned in disgrace before articles of impeachment could be brought against him....Can you name the specific lie the president told about Benghazi?

Edith Ann said...

They went there! BENGHAZI!!!!! And how many died on Bush's watch at American Embassies around the world?

Someone needs to do a study on dementia and memory loss--it starts much earlier that we once thought!

No, the Advocate need comments to support the number of readers so they can sell advertising. I seriously doubt they will send a reporter to the event, but they might.

Justin--it is Tuesday, August 27th, at 6:00 p.m. at the Club Westerner. Free and open to all. Come on over!

As I was running my errands this morning, I turned on the AM radio to see what the opposition was up to. It started out with a couple of lies…. Ted Cruz produced his birth certificate to prove what? The pundit said liberals were all up in arms claiming Cruz was not a U.S. citizen therefore not eligible to run for president… I haven’t heard any liberal say that, I hope he is and is the Republican presidential nominee.

The next lie was that liberals made a big deal out of the rodeo clown mocking President Obama. I’ve seen conservative talk-show hosts and some right-wing politicians are making a big deal out of it because they wan a license to be racist…. I believe that liberals are immune to the nonsense; they thought this event was just another day.

EA is right again. The Obama protester thread has generated a lot of traffic… I believe if it were titled “Obama” it would have generated the same amount of traffic.

Anti- Obama posters are releasing their frustration because we don’t have a President Romney.

Some claim that their freedoms have been taken away, but they won’t specify which ones. Others are claiming racism and that assertion is being answered with denials.

Insert from the article:

..."The Texas Republican shared his birth certificate with The Dallas Morning News. It shows his place of birth as Calgary, Alberta, to an American mother, which gave him American citizenship."

It's strange how that works for some and not others.

Mike said...

Yes ,because Obama was born in Hawaii to an American woman....An American citizen any way you slice it.....Cruz has dual citizenship because he was born in Canada.
Cruz doesn't think so but he doesn't make Canadian law.

I got a kick listening to a RW radio host saying Cruz produced his birth certificate to avoid only controversy was in RW land...Again,Hawaii is in the United States and so was his mother was born in Kansas...Duh! No controversy....:-)
