Cheney: Any attempt to impeach Obama would be distraction

Dick Cheney(CNN) — Although a fierce critic of Barack Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney does not support calls from some on the far right of his party to impeach him, saying it would simply create a distraction.

“I’m not prepared at this point to call for the impeachment of the President,” Cheney said in an interview with CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper.”

Cheney believes Obama is “the worst president of my lifetime” and that “Jimmy Carter might have been a better President,” but impeaching him is not going to accomplish much.

Both Obama and Carter are Democrats, while Cheney is a conservative Republican who served two terms under George W. Bush. SOURCE

I have to admit, I wanted to see Obama impeached, convicted and removed from office. I wanted to see him and his entire crew in prison garb for the rest of their natural lives, I still do, but I have to agree with former Vice President Dick Cheney on this one.

The unscrupulous regime of Barack Hussein Obama knows full well how to spin out a new headline grabbing scandal any time one is needed to take the focus OFF of Obama and whatever it is he happens to be doing to anger the American people.

It’s almost impossible to keep track of the transgressions made by the Obama regime, I know I have given up on trying to keep them in my arsenal of blog facts and figures, it’s easier to do a Google search and link back to some analytical type that lives to compile data and figures.

Even having incredible search capabilities and knowing how to use them to sort through the BS to get to the truth can be very frustrating at times; you see, you can present the most well researched, well written and factual piece imaginable and there will always be one problem you’ll never escape most Americans have the attention span of the average 3 year old and their ability to comprehend is even more skewed.

I don’t know how many times I have tried to tell friends and readers; the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama is NOT going to happen, at least not now. I wish they would read and understand this regarding the impeachment process.

The Process of Impeachment of the President of the United States.

Impeachment is a long and drawn out process and it is NOT one that will always offer you a guaranteed outcome.

Calls for the Republican-led House to impeach Obama are coming from Sarah Palin and other harsh conservative critics at the height of midterm campaigning. His administration’s handling of the immigration crisis on the southern border has amplified the small chorus.

However, such a step is considered far-fetched, especially after House Speaker John Boehner expressed disagreement with the premise in this case.

Saint Sarah of Palin must be wearing the *cheerleader* suit again, that or she’s just not seeing her name in the news enough lately.

You would think that someone in Palin’s position would KNOW the process that is needed to successfully execute an impeachment, but, possibly, Palin isn’t as smart as some think she is. Just sayin’…

I don’t always agree with John Boehner, I think that’s a known fact, but in this case I am in agreement with him. Far-fetched and a distraction is exactly what Obama and his cronies would like to see happen; take the short attention span of the average American and divert it even more and hopefully, as the Dems believe, they can snatch a victory in the upcoming election in November.

Obama has clashed repeatedly and sharply with Republicans during his presidency.

Apparently Captain Obvious found himself a job with CNN as a writer. :)

Cheney, however, did offer limited support for House Republican efforts to sue Obama over their claims he has abused his authority on a number of occasions by unlawfully going around Congress to carry out policy.

They’re focusing their unusual legal action on a piece of Obamacare, a major political flashpoint between the GOP and the President and his supporters.

“I’m glad to see the House Republicans are challenging him at least legally at this point. But I think that gets to be a bit of a distraction just like the impeachment of Bill Clinton did,” Cheney said.

Until recently I had never heard of filing suit against a sitting President but apparently it is a realty. I don’t know what good it will do, if any, but at least there is some sign of life from the GOP.

Bill Clinton was impeached over the Monica Lewinsky affair, but not convicted and you could expect that same result if Obama were to be impeached; a lot of noise, smoke and hoopla but when it’s all over Obama will still be the guy in the Oval Office and feeling more empowered than ever.

In my estimation the only real option that we have is to win the 2014 elections and take back the U.S. Senate, then, with GOP control of BOTH Houses Obama and his pen can be controlled until 2016 when we retake the White House and return this nation to a stable and mature leadership.

I just hope the GOP doesn’t blow it.

    Distraction is what the impeachment of Bill Clinton was. While the impeachment was going on, secrets were sold and/or traded to the Chinese, among other things.
    Yes, I agree with you Fred, as much as I would like to see Obama go, his spin machine is elegant and impressive.

  2. Gary says:

    “…but impeaching him is not going to accomplish much…”

    Well, it would put a screeching halt to his nefarious plans; if only for a few moments.
    It would remind liberals they aren’t as powerful as they think.
    It would show the rest of us that some of the GOP still have their ‘sacks’ full of the shit.
    It would show the world that America does not align itself with this socialist mentality.
    And, best of all, it would allow old school conservatives one or two full night’s rest.

    I dunno. As a firefighter, their were times we new the structure was beyond saving, and we went into a defensive mode to prevent damage to adjacent buildings, but we never stopped putting the wet stuff on the red stuff, and we never just let the fire ‘burn itself out’.

    I say arrest the bastard and put him in gitmo

    • TexasFred says:

      The United States is the issue here and to impeach Obama, to start the proceedings at a time when you have NO WAY of winning, think conviction, only makes the bastard more inclined to do more damage.. Right now we must *corral* him until such time as we have the numbers to do away with him… Think November… Stop looking at the end of your nose… Think ahead…

      • Gary says:

        End of my nose?

        My point is to stop him in his tracks…

        Even IF we keep the house and take the Senate, we have nothing because he has shown NO regard for the law. When told no by Congress, he uses his phone and his pen to circumvent law. In fact, we all have called him ‘Little Emperor’ because of his ideology that is reflected by his behavior.

        Thinking ahead, I see utter disassembly of our constitution, and consequently our country if he is not stopped.

        That’s well beyond the end of my nose.

        • TexasFred says:

          Gary… THINK MAN… Until we have BOTH Houses impeachment means nothing… Without a Senatorial conviction it’s just a time and money wasting distraction…

          It’s a lot like *key board karate*… “I’m a gunna kick yer ass you redneck knuckle draggin piece a shit… ”

          Well, when they can reach through the screen and kick my ass, I might be in danger, until then, without a 2/3 majority Obama is still the POTUS… We do NOT have that 2/3 majority at this time…

          • Gary says:

            I don’t disagree with that Fred, not one bit.

            That was why I finished the first comment with “I say arrest the bastard and put him in gitmo”

            Certainly, talking of impeachment now is nothing more than mental conditioning, but in the event we do take the Senate and keep the house (assuming Boner has grown a pair), short of impeachment, how else can we stop his terrorist rampage? Because he has clearly shown no regard for law.

            SB871 prevents any further discussion…

            • TexasFred says:

              And I know that I too want to see him in prison but rule of law MUST be followed.. It IS coming, it IS going to happen, but to take the POTUS out of the Oval Office and place under arrest, without charges files and warrants issued is a coup… See the video I posted from Pete Sessions… The winds of change are blowing my dear friend, and blowing in OUR direction…

    • TexasFred says:

      This is my Congressman and friend, Pete Sessions, and unless I am reading this wrong, maybe Congress is setting up for *the kill* as soon as the elections are in the books and the RIGHT has BOTH Houses..

      • Gary says:

        Outstanding opening comments. That is exactly what I have been saying.

        Pete referenced Obama’s tendency to legislate when congress doesn’t act quick enough, but as an addition to that thought, we saw Justice Roberts do the same thing when he redefined Obamacare as a tax rather than a penalty.
        It was his job to determine whether it was constitutional or not; not redefine it.

        • TexasFred says:

          Roberts is not an egotistical megalomaniac.. He got the message from the RIGHT and he has since stood well..

          Obama? Not so much… It’s only a matter of time Lil’ Brother… It’s coming, and it’s going to hit that son of a bitch in the Oval Office like a Mack truck!

  3. the unit says:

    Yep a conservatives reasoning overcomes his feelings.

    What causes liberals to think like they do?
    This article on JFK Jr’s plane crash may shed light on that.
    A quote from it…
    “And here is the crux of the matter: the pilot’s emotions drowned out the flight instruments’ story about banking and diving at high speed, and screamed out, ‘No way! It can’t be! I’m actually flying straight and level! I know it! I feel it’s true!’ ”

    I expect to see the greatest display of voter fraud that the Alinsky progressives can put together. The goal is to turn our CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC into a democracy. 51% telling the 49% what they are going to do with our country. HEH, there aught to be a law.

  5. HGPSURF says:

    It really sucks when we have a lying, lawless, liberal louse for president and we can’t get rid of him.

    • Wayne says:

      It’s PROGRESSIVE(marxist) not Liberal. PROGRESSIVES have given liberals a bad name. Hildebeast stood on the stage in the primary debates and declared she was a progressive not a democrat. At least she had the balls to declare what she believed.

      • HGPSURF says:

        Progressive does not begin with L so I used liberal. Still I think Liberals deserve a bad name.

  6. Bunkerville says:

    Great points made. Jonathan Turley made some good arguments for the lawsuit and slapped Congress for allowing and giving away its power as defined by the Constitution.

    • Wayne says:

      I saw that piece of his testimony on Fox last night. He made good points that I thought congress should take to heart. In reality, I think they are all afraid to stand up and do whatever they can legally for whatever reason. I think the thought of loosing all their perks and priviliges guides their decisions in the end.By standing in opposition of bad laws and programs, the Republicans are taking action, proving that the government is working the way it was designed by the framers.

  7. Abigail says:

    Even if the GOP gains total control of Congress, any attempt to remove him from power or threaten his ability to use the power he is usurping on a daily basis will be met by cries of racism. That much is crystal clear. The AG will cry racism as will the media and the LowInfoVoters. Any legal process (to remove him) will require time and planning and this will allow him and his supporters to fashion counterattacks of various kinds. I believe the country would be placed on the brink of a new civil war. And, with DHS making visible shows of force to ‘let people know they are in the area’ and its offshoot Federal Protective Service, one can’t help but wonder if this is the nascent national police force that obama talked about years ago.
    In any case, to talk of doing anything before November is foolish and indeed a distraction. As usual, Fred, you are spot on. Above all, we need a united GOP Congress which will hopefully have the guts to stop ‘his highness’ in his tracks. Anything less and I shudder to think of the future.
