Obama Failure For The Day (Friday)

Someone gave the idea of wheeling on Bill Clinton to back up Obama on the tax cuts bill a thumbs up. But, man, they really shouldn't have. The miserable "joint" press conference looked uncomfortably like Obama had brought his dad in to help him out because he'd paddled way out of his depth. And then to see Obama walk out mid-session and hand over the whole thing to Bubba felt like another public display of Obama weakness. This guy really ain't hacking it.

The founding fathers had argued about the issue of impeachment. The case for allowing impeachment of a sitting president for "maladministration" (incompetence) was argued but ultimately rejected. Under Constitutional rules, only "treason, bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors" can be cited as grounds.

Every time I see some hick sporting an "Impeach Obama" bumper sticker, it always gets me pissed. On what f*cking grounds, idiots? Now if that old "maladministration" thing had made it to the final draft, I might not be so down on the idea. Yes. It's come to this.
