Kevin McCarthy’s job is far more imperiled than Joe Biden’s
Assuming Biden has nothing to hide, then if Democrats play this well, it will finally destroy the Republican party.
70% of Americans want higher taxes on the wealthy and on corporations, 70% of Americans want universal healthcare, 70% of Americans want tighter gun controls, 70% of Americans support a woman's right to choose. We are the large majority. We are strong.
For once, let the DNC eschew their corporate sponsors and put forth a platform that appeals to the dog and not the tail, and we will win in a landslide.
According to McCarthy’s standards, the investigation is illegal. When the twice impeached former guy was first impeached, McCarthy said that they could not investigate a sitting president without a House vote. I guess, according to him, when the shoe is on the other foot, IOKIYAR.
A note to our community: I'm having success, when Biden's age comes up with replying, "Biden is a wise old man, who's long life experience has made him extraordinary capable to be effective. His judgment is unparalleled and he knows how to hire and retain the best staff and cabinet." very effective with Asian, Hispanic and East Indian voters.
MY husband, lovely, honest, and a great person, has a son who is /was just the opposite: drug addict, committed serious crimes. He was jailed. MY husband still loves him. I think it is natural. But to blame Pres. Biden for Hunter's doings, is just plain wrong.
The beauty of it all is that now Jamie Raskin has brought up somebody else's son (in-law). Some criticize that Dems shoulda done this sooner but to my mind this timing is perfect. It juxtaposes the two cases (Jared Kushner vs Hunter Biden) and the differences couldn't be more glaring and just in time for pre-election game-play.
I have no faith in the people of this country. Look who they vote for to represent them! They seem to be so angry and afraid that they will go after anyone including Biden who has stopped the insanity in the white house and brought sanity back to the presidency. It seems the Republicans like theatre rather than getting things done for this country and the people!
Today’s conservatives don’t care about what’s right or wrong. They only care about winning and shaming liberals. The move for an impeachment hearing will accomplish political points for those who care little about our constitutional republic. Just as with Hillary Clinton, the investigation will find NOTHING.
Other: It will force the press to either report the (lack of ) facts supporting Biden's impeachment or continue on their destructive "both-sides-ism" approach to reporting political news, which by any measure should BE the news surrounding this obvious political stunt.
Poor Kevin😏He has himself caught between the pinching claws of a big ole monster lobster. He is a spineless, hapless man who will be dragged into the “ deep briny depths” by his own lack or morality and conviction. GO DOWN KEVIN!!! See how it looks and feels to be all by yourself, scrambling to keep your head above water, very soon you will be out of a job.
The only people in this equation that should be impeached is McCarthy and his merry band of side show idiots,who don't do anything resembling work,like actually representing their constituents,much like Matt Gaetz doesn't represent the people up here in Northwest Florida.All of them should be kicked out of Congress and competent people elected to replace them.
BTW,I haven't heard that Joe Biden calls up foreign dignitaries trying to bribe them to spill made-up dirt on his adversaries or stirring up any insurrections lately.(According to tfg, apparently those things shouldn't be impeachable offenses anyhoo?)
No, it's true. These _are_ allegations. Baseless allegations. The Republicans are nothing but a pack of viscous allegators.
During the Reagan administration I recall similar juggling exercises by Republican operatives, with the only problem being that evidence was extremely thin on the ground.
Jimmy Carter was impugned on the strength of his unfortunate relative Billy and his unwise product endorsements.
Everybody has some relative they’d just as soon disown.
Mr. Trump simply has more of them, and lacks the sense to grasp the fact.
Kevin McCarthy hasn’t worn a set of balls for as long as I can remember. Initially a bogus Impeachment would be throwing a bone to the Far Right Whackjob contingent of the GOP, but as the real story of what Trump’s minions did on January 6th and subsequent crusades becomes more and more visible & , and as the useless spinning of wheels in service of politics rather than policy becomes ever more obvious, obviously more destructive ... and as the Far Right’s antics & bad political theatre become ever more irritating .... the attraction will wear off.
At some point - and yes I once believed that it would “sooner” than it obviously will be - the middle of the country will have HAD ENOUGH of posturing, toddler temper tantrums & “Political Theatre” ... and step back into some semblance of sanity and a desire for productive legislation & governance that will create real, positive & beneficial change.
We have a serious problem with our Economy, and it’s not Biden failing to do what the Whack Jobs on the Right are demanding, but rather that which we are not yet doing, and of what the 1% is terrified will happen, i.e. a comprehensive and JUST redesign of our tax codes - federal & state. We need to begin to tax the 1% on how games they play and how their “income” really works, i.e. they borrow against their stock portfolios, and therefore never need to cash out those portfolios, and therefore ... never incur any tax obligations on the “income” on which they are living ... quite remarkably well I would say?
And to the weak bleatings of “persecution,” and “unfair,” and “etc.,” and I call B.S. I would say ... well “Pound Sand?” There are alternative ways in which to phrase my message back to the Uber Rich in which I attempt to convey my (limited) sympathy, but I will try to remember my late mother’s wish that I speak more like a Lady ... and just go with “Pound Sand.”
Time for a Radical Redesign of our tax codes to generate the the money that we need to reconfigure our Productive Economy, and make our tax codes FAIR to all citizens of this country. But, if I have to choose the constituency I would most like to reward for its participation - it would be those That WORK FOR A LIVING, and provide Goods & Services that are important to the well being of ALL OF US. In Solidarity ... ME
If 2020 is any indication, 2024, ultimately, will be decided by a narrow margin who reside in a handful of battleground states and who don’t give a damn about Hunter Biden and the House impeachment inquiry, but, instead, care about their own lives.
When will the Dems spend some $ to hire a top notch advertising firm that can create at least an eye catching sandwich board for touting the Biden admin's accomplishments!?
They have 'investigated' Hunter Biden for five years, haven't they? It is so obvious that tRump is pulling the puppet strings of the pathetic, illegitimate Speaker and Congress to distract, and deflect from his own obvious criminality. As an Independent, I have had it with this NAZI wanna be, and his fake 'Congress'.
