Impeachment of Chief Justice Roberts Possible?

Rep. Peter DeFazio Investigating Impeachment For Chief Justice John Roberts

With Democrats increasingly outraged over the Supreme Court's Citizen United decision that allowed unlimited corporate spending in elections -- a change conservatives have been more successful at taking advantage of -- a Democratic congressman is raising the prospect of impeaching the Supreme Court's chief justice over the issue. . .

  1. Let the games begin. Beware the 'unintended consequences'.

    Dems see the fury that is about to be unleashed on them, and they are casting around to hurt others first, and see what they can get away with. Act of desparation.

    Lame duck session will be like watching desparate turds, clinging to the bowl as they swirl down.

  2. Here's a way that the two parties diverge:

    Nancy Pelosi took impeachment off the table a a time when her base was thirsty for it. When Obama got in, he said that we were looking forward, not back, and there were no investigations, no attempts to prosecute anyone from the Bush administration (though there'd be no shortage of candidates).

    But high-profile Republicans are saying that if they win, they're going to investigate, investigate, investigate. There have also been rumblings of impeaching Obama, though like with Clinton, it is an impeachment in search of an offense. Hopefully, it's something at least as entertaining as lying about a blow job.

  3. Shocker! The kleptocrats dodge accountability and responsibility for their actions. They want kickbacks without consequences.

    That's about to change.

    Both wings of the same party are in for a shock, for they do not yet grasp the fury of an enraged populace. We've had enough of their antics. They will be held accountable for their actions.

    Think about the Torries.
    Think about the party bosses during the fall of Eastern Europe.
    Tyrannts don't do so well, once Liberty is wrested from them.

    Oh, they throw a fit and break some china. But in the end, Liberty rules and tyrants drool. And their staff and courtiers and media and enablers and local party bosses are held accountable too. Read history. It aint purty.
    Get ready.


    Expect the RINO leadership to rush to sup from the trough, and be quick to ignore the transgression of others (as they depend on it themselves, in turn). But an enraged people will not let either/both groups avoid responsibility. The whole bunch will be held accountable for their deeds these last several years.

    What is the remedy for treason?

  4. Thanks for the post- You did the dirty work for me.
    There is no way they could even consider impeaching Roberts. Defazio must have been smoking crack when he said this.
    As far as the GOP investigating, there are things they should investigate, like the Black Panther incident and others. But the GOP would be on crack if they try and impeach Obama. While I disagree withObama on most everything, that is not a reason to impeach him. We knew what we were getting when he was voted into office so elections do have consequences. We knew Obama was a liberal and like 99.9% of politicians of both parties, he lied to get elected, but that doesn't mean he should be impeached.

  5. Politics has just gotten plain weird. In Iowa, they're trying to "unretain" judges that ruled the same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional. They're not getting rid of them because they did something illegal, or unethical or anything. They just disagree with the judge's rulings. This is new.

    But looking for an impeachable offense isn't new. Whatever you think of Bill Clinton, lying about getting a BJ was an extraordinarily lame thing to get impeached for. The case itself was ultimately dismissed. Impeaching a politician for lying about ANYTHING is grounds for impeaching them all.

    Ever notice that a politician says something, and then the pundits say, "what he really meant" in a wink-wink, nudge-nudge way? They all lie in subtle or overt ways. And we mostly shrug our shoulders and say, "politics as usual." It's sad and infuriating, but that's the way it is. I have no doubt that if the GOP wins in November in significant enough numbers, they WILL start looking for an impeachable offense. I just hope Obama's kept it in his pants!!!

    And finally, Dan, THANK YOU for being in complete opposition to my politics, but polite and friendly otherwise. I think you're ten kinds of wrong (and vice-versa, I'm sure), but I appreciate our back-and-forths.
