Next verse, same as the first (con't)


Newt Gingrich: Obama Could Be Impeached Over Gay Marriage Reversal

...if President Obama doesn't change his mind and order his Justice Department to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, Republicans in Congress should strike back and even consider impeachment proceedings.

"I believe the House Republicans next week should pass a resolution instructing the president to enforce the law and to obey his own constitutional oath, and they should say if he fails to do so that they will zero out [defund] the office of attorney general and take other steps as necessary until the president agrees to do his job," said Gingrich. "His job is to enforce the rule of law and for us to start replacing the rule of law with the rule of Obama is a very dangerous precedent."

Yes, Mr. Sanctity of Marriage Guy.

Remember the FISA?

Speaking of impeachment, why didn't Bush get impeached for that?

Ass. Nobody said anyhing about not enforcing the law.

Newt should keep talking. He's a fearsome organ of Tea Party intelligence.

Montag said...

Only one problem. There are no enforcement provisions in DOMA. It's just an assurance to the states that they can legally ignore any marriages performed in other states without fear of creating federal civil rights infractions.

As usual, Newticles is blowing smoke out of his ass.

Obama has made no attempt to deny the courts the right to adjudicate the constitutionality of the law. He's simply saying that his administration won't defend the constitutionality of it. Presidents contest the constitutionality of law all the time--that's one of the functions of the Solicitor General.

Newticles is just stirring shit.

It's about the only thing he does well.

Griswald notes that this decision carries with it general principals which deserve question.

Personally I thought they did it as mostly a PR stunt to gain whatever little good will from their disastrous erosion of support from the liberal base.

Impeachment will be on the rhetorical table till Obama is out of office.

As best as I can tell, the Teabirchpublicans were calling for impeachment on inauguration day for Obama committing the high crime of not being an uber-conservative white protestant*.

*The opposite of being an uber-conservative white protestant is, of course, to be a communist socialist fascist dictator and Satan.

Holy Shit... I must have missed it. When did Obama get a BJ ?

any excuse to impeach will do. Use DOMA, then Shut down the govt also because Obama doesn' approve the House budget and they have a case that he is unable to govern and needs replacing..
