"Why don't the Democrats run on impeachment?"
Remember impeachment? Early this year it was being widely heralded by the Democrats as a reason to vote them back into power in the House and Senate. Then they realized that such a rationale was counterproductive so they kept their mouths shut on this topic and heatedly denied that they will attempt impeachment proceedings if elected. However, it now appears they can't contain themselves. The "I" word is being brought up again with more and more frequency. In addition, many leftwingers, including DUmmies, are frustrated by the downplaying of impeachment as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Why don't the Democrats run on impeachment?" So let us now watch the DUmmies once again impeach their motives in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting my DUmmie ants getting more and more antic the closer we get to the elections, is in the [brackets]:
Why don't the Democrats run on impeachment?
[Psst! They really are running on impeachment but they don't want the general public to know that.]
Talk about energizing your base. I think the Democrats ought to make impeachment one of, if not THE, central theme in the upcoming elections. They need to convince all the fence sitters out there that this president needs to go before 2008, that he is a DANGER to the country. (And he is. We all know it.)
Anybody who thinks this president shouldn't be impeached is probably going to vote GOP anyway. He has broken more laws than a mob boss. I say play the impeachment card to win, then follow through with it. Then kick Cheney to the curb.
[Keep it up. Let the word go out. Democrats WANT impeachment! Scream it from every rooftop.]
because we don't want to scare the crap out of anyone that
might vote democratic that might not be a typical democratic voter dems are running on the promise of OVERSIGHT and that means oversight into iraq and the billions of cash we were handing out that disappeared, oversight into nsa wiretapping, katrina, etc etc. and if that oversight just so happens to lead to charges being brought against the criminals...well, then so be it! (and it will be, i'm sure)
[Oh, go ahead and BROADCAST what you really want---impeachment.]
Nancy Pelosi flat-out said if investigations lead to impeachment, so be it. Screaming it to the rooftops would play into the GOP mantra now. They know what's coming, but we don't need to hand them a campaign slogan by admitting to the inevitable course of action. It's a game.
[Shhh! Your secret game is safe with me. Let us not publicly admit what we REALLY want.]
Politics is a game. And to win we have to be smarter.
[By posting our impeachment strategy in DUmmieland only to have it reproduced in the DUmmie FUnnes. Yup! You sure got the smarts.]
Running on "impeachment" is just not right ... WE all KNOW this crew has done 100 different things that should lead to impeachment, but you have to have the PROCESS first ... Have to have official hearings, and it is putting the cart before the horse to just jump to impeachment ...
[TRANSLATION: We want to kick Bush out of office but we must first go through the pretense of having official hearings.]
I personally think they're doing the right thing by acting like they're not interested in impeachment. They don't want to sound like they're on a witchhunt. Investigations, hearings and oversight will be one of the things on the agenda. You have to investigate before you impeach. I guess the plan is to do thorough investigations and see where that takes us.
[Key word: "acting." See the Democrats must ACT like they are not interested in impeachment even though that is their REAL goal. Of course, they will first go through the PRETENSE of investigations and hearings just to make it all look good.]
My only concern is, as much as I like the Impeachment word, it could backfire, Republicans will call us 'angry unpatriotic democrats'. We have to come across as reasonable.
[It's going to be tough for you to keep up that "reasonable" pretense.]
Bring up these issues and then say "this is why the chimp ought to be impeached". NEVER let the people draw their own conclusions. You have to give the conclusions to the people if you want to win.
[DUmmie Quote of the Week: "NEVER let the people draw their own conclusions."]
Pelosi has already announced she won´t impeach. That´s why there´s little chance of victory, no real guts, not to mention Diebold.
[Give up hope...NOW!!!]
MAYBE IN NOVEMBER, IF WE WIN MAJORITY, MY DREAM WILL COME TRUE AND IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS WILL BE HELD FOR BUSH, CHENEY AND ALL THOSE INVOLVED IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES.
[SOMEDAY MY PRINCE WILL COME!]
