Yes, the Radical Right DOES Intend to Impeach President Obama

If the nation once again falls into the catastrophe of Republican control of Congress, we can count on a campaign to remove President Obama by means of a trumped-up impeachment. Steve Benen, as is so often the case, has the story here:

The far-right Washington Times published two op-eds, on the same page, on the same day, demanding the impeachment of President Obama. One was from the perpetually deranged Jeffrey Kuhner, who insisted, "Obama has betrayed the American people. Impeachment is the only answer. This usurper must fall."

The other was from Tom Tancredo, the former Republican congressman and presidential candidate, and apparent Colorado gubernatorial candidate.

"Yes, Mr. Obama is a more serious threat to America than al Qaeda. We know that Osama bin Laden and followers want to kill us, but at least they are an outside force against whom we can offer our best defense. But when a dedicated enemy of the Constitution is working from the inside, we face a far more dangerous threat. Mr. Obama can accomplish with the stroke of his pen what bin Laden cannot accomplish with bombs and insurgents. [...]"

Now Democrats, and Democratic leaning independents...

GET OFF YOUR A*S AND START WORKING FOR A DEMOCRATIC VICTORY IN NOVEMBER--UNLESS YOU WANT A PSYCHOTIC LIKE MICHELE BACHMANN DICTATING OUR NATION'S AGENDA.

The Disgusting Racial Lies and Fear-Mongering of Fox "News"

Rachel Maddow is my hero for this piece.

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy



FOX "NEWS" IS DELIBERATELY TRYING TO STIR UP FEAR AND HATRED AGAINST BLACKS IN ORDER TO FRIGHTEN WHITE VOTERS INTO SUPPORTING CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS.

Is that clear enough?

Rick Perry Lies--AGAIN

PolitiFact catches Perry in another of his pathetic lies right here. It seems Perry claims the White House never consults him--a demonstrable falsehood. Naturally, he disseminated this lie on the right's favorite propaganda outlet, Fox "News".

Oh, and Perry said that President Obama is harming Texas and has Texas "in his radar", and not in a good way. I guess that's why Perry accepted $17 BILLION in Federal stimulus money--the program President Obama pushed and Perry's right-wing fanatic allies in Congress opposed. The facts are right here.

I think "conservative office holder" and "pathological liar" are becoming synonymous terms.

Karl Rove, the Cancer of American Politics, Hits New Depths of Dishonesty and Hypocrisy

I'll let Steve Benen take it from here:

The key to dealing with Karl Rove's presence in American politics is understanding the role he plays. Once one fully appreciates the extent to which he's a poison in our democracy, smearing our institutions with a pernicious venom, it becomes easier to endure his nonsense without developing an antacid addiction.

But once in a while, Rove's pathological tendencies are a little harder to take.

...Rove's "biggest mistake," he said, was not fighting harder against Democrats who questioned Bush's honesty on the war in Iraq. His column came seven years to the day after Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) concluded that Bush and his team "put a spin on the intelligence and a spin on the truth." It wasn't long before this obvious truth became the standard position of the Democratic mainstream...

In Rove's bizarro world, it wasn't Bush's spectacular failures that undermined the nation, it was the nerve of Democrats to point out that nearly all of the claims the former president made about a war turned out to be false. In this strange alternate reality, those who lied and failed are the heroes, while those who called out the liars "lost their honor and blackened their reputations."

It's quite literally nauseating.

Read the whole thing and the accompanying comments. And try to control your disgust and amazement at the damned nerve of this son-of-a-bitch calling other people liars.

Right Wingers Lying (Again) About Sen. Franken's VICTORY in 2008

The typical disgusting story is here. Naturally, Fox "News", the Propaganda Arm of the Republican Party, is helping to push this utter BS.

They just lie and lie and lie. They have no shame. They have no morals.

And these are the people who will win in November if the Democrats don't bother to vote.

Question: Is Mitt Romney Mostly a Liar, an Idiot, or an Ignoramus on the START Treaty?

Fred Kaplan utterly destroys Mitt Romney's absurd, dishonest attack on the new START treaty right here. Romney has quite literally gotten EVERYTHING WRONG about the treaty--everything. Excerpt:


In 35 years of following debates over nuclear arms control, I have never seen anything quite as shabby, misleading and—let's not mince words—thoroughly ignorant as Mitt Romney's attack on the New START treaty in the July 6 Washington Post.

Senate Republicans are looking for some grounds—any grounds—to defeat this treaty, which was signed in April by President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart, Dmitri Medvedev, and which will soon come to the Senate floor for a vote.

Romney, the former Republican governor of Massachusetts, clearly feels the need to pump up some foreign-policy swagger in advance of the 2012 presidential primaries. But one would think he could have found a ghostwriter who had even the vaguest acquaintance with the subject matte
r.

The Senate Republicans have only one real objection to the Treaty: it was proposed by President Obama. And so, in their typically reflexive, brain-dead manner, they have to oppose it, even though America would benefit from it.

But then, when have most of the Senate Republicans ever given a damn about what benefits the American people?

REMEMBER, DEMOCRATS AND DEMOCRATIC-LEANING INDEPENDENTS: IF YOU DON'T VOTE THIS YEAR, LYING, IGNORANT RIGHT-WING FANATICS LIKE ROMNEY WILL COME TO POWER.

Period.
