Republicans Shouting Impeachment Have Reached Critical State Of Obama Derangement Syndrome

obama-wtf

 

OK. Seriously, this has now gone far enough. A few days after the President of the United States announced that our last prisoner of war, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, had been rescued from his five years of captivity by the Taliban, Republicans are now seriously calling for the President to be impeached for his actions in securing Bergdahl’s release. Instead of congratulating the President for doing whatever was necessary to make sure an American soldier was no longer a prisoner in a strange land and making sure we ‘left no soldier behind,’ conservatives have grown louder in their calls that President Obama broke the law by releasing five detainees from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Bergdahl.

However, do you want to know the real reason why they are upset? Obama Derangement Syndrome, pure and simple. The President is in his sixth year occupying the White House, and ODS has now reached critical state. They weren’t able to make him a one-term President, despite Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s promises. Even though they threw every possible obstacle they could at it, Obamacare ended up becoming a raging success, as millions of Americans utilized the marketplaces to get health coverage. Somehow, Obama is still POTUS in the face of multiple Republican made ‘scandals’ hyped up by a compliant media, all for the sake of creating public backlash against Obama and find some inroad towards impeachment.

Therefore, Republicans, completely infected with ODS, have been, per the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent, ”quick to jump on the train to crazytown” when it comes to this particular situation. Which is why we have not only conservative pundits calling for Obama to be impeached, but Republican lawmakers in Washington claiming the President broke the law by authorizing the prisoner exchange that freed Bergdahl. Obviously, when you have GOPers in D.C. yelling that Obama “broke the law,” it will eventually lead to them whispering, then shouting, impeachment.

Now, per Republicans, their main beef with this is that the Obama Administration did not consult with Congress prior to the prisoner exchange, and that Congress was not given the necessary 30 day notice. The administration has stated that Bergdahl’s health was a major concern and that it was deemed necessary to get him as soon as possible. Also, the White House had regularly consulted with members of Congress on the possibility of exchanging Gitmo detainees for Sgt. Bergdahl since 2011. On top of that, Republican Senators and Representatives had recently called on the President to do whatever possible to bring Bergdahl back home. Of course, these same Congressional Republicans changed their tune the moment Obama took action and secured Bergdahl’s release.

Per the Huffington Post’s Sam Stein and Amanda Terkel, Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), John McCain (R-AZ) and Rep. Rich Nugent (R-FL) have all been extremely critical of the President since the Bergdahl announcement was made. However, each of them made statements earlier this year calling for the administration to do all it can to free Bergdahl. McCain, while on a Sunday show (natch), even spoke approvingly of exchanging prisoners to bring Bergdahl home. Also, in April, Senate Republicans, led by McConnell, pushed forth a resolution declaring that no soldier shall be left behind.

Yet, now that the President has kept the promise that America makes to all of its soldiers, ALL OF ITS SOLDIERS, Republicans have decided that this is their moment to strike and finally nail Obama. Former one-term Republican Congressman, and current conservative talking head, Allen West took to his blog on Tuesday to make the case for President Obama’s impeachment. On Fox News, Andrew Napolitano, a former judge, claimed that the President not only violated the law by not adhering to the 30 day notice, but that he provided material assistance to a terrorist organization, thus violating a federal statute and opening himself up for impeachment. Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy stated that by returning enemy combatants to the field, Obama has created a high crime that could lead to him being removed from office.

All of this discussion surrounding the release of Gitmo detainees is just one angle of attack to make this rescue of an American POW appear criminal and unseemly. A former operative for Mitt Romney’s 2012 Presidential campaign, Richard Grennell, has been organizing interviews between soldiers critical of Bergdahl’s military service and major media outlets. Essentially, Grennell, who also worked for President George W. Bush, is running a campaign to ensure that Bergdahl is held up to as much scrutiny as possible in order to sully his reputation and make the rescue operation dirty in the eyes of the public. At the same end, Bergdahl’s father has been slandered by the right-wing media regarding his appearance (he has a long beard which he started growing to commemorate when his son was captured) and some comments he’s made.

All of this is a concerted effort in order to create a scandal that might finally get the President out of office and cure the Republicans’ deadly strain of ODS. Even though Obama can’t be re-elected in 2016, it is still way too long to make Republicans wait for him to finally leave the White House. Therefore, they will do anything to get out of the ICU that Obama Derangement Syndrome has placed them in. That means telling America that only good soldiers that everyone liked deserve to come home if they are captured. And the President shouldn’t use detainees in Gitmo to secure a captured soldier’s release, even though international law states all of those prisoners there will need to be released very soon anyway.

When you have a bad case of ODS, you don’t have time to think. You only have time to act.

  1. Why consult the congress on anything? The only thing they do is obstruct legislation, take votes to real the ACA,and go on vacation. Oh and kill immigration reform and jobs.

    I am quite confident that Obama made a right decision. He isn’t prone to irrational actions. They just hate it that he outsmarts them on every issue. Which I find particularly hilarious.

    I have been giving this Bergdahl situation a lot of thought. For this guy to become so disillusioned and do the things he supposedly did. There has to be an underlying cause. I am willing to bet that given the rhetoric coming out from various sides that this could very well turn into another Mai Lai incident. It wouldn’t surprise me at all.

  2. Found this this morning and it made me sit up. You know the meme that 6 soldiers died while searching for Bergdahl? Well something is fishy and it aint French house of ill repute

    How Many Died Saving Bergdahl? Likely None.

  3. I wonder if all this vitriol and talk of impeachment might not just be a roundabout way of trying to prevent a Hillary Clinton presidency. I really can’t see the House impeaching Pres. Clinton, but if worse comes to worst, and Pres. Obama is impeached and convicted, we will then have Joe Biden as President, and a Hillary Clinton presidency would be a little less likely.

  4. Yeah, this is not an impeachable offense just like all the other things they want to impeach him for are not impeachable offenses.

    He’s well within his power as Commander-in-Chief and the chief foreign policymaker.

    The Republicans have nothing, as usual.

    Maybe we should ask them what they would have done? Maybe we should also ask them that since they are so opposed to this man’s release, perhaps they want to send him back when he gets here?

  5. The house can impeach but the senate will never convict and if the crazy baggers want to go that route I say get out of their way and let them make fools of themselves. I know that’s redundant but it is what it is

  6. Yeah..Right! Like Congressional Repub.Conservs would EVER let Bergdahl be freed! They would kill their own mothers and blame it on Obama if they could get away with it! I like that photo of Obama, it’s as if he’s thinking What!? what is your problem?

  7. This should make a fine spectacle. Especially when the gop’s own words are brought back to haunt them.

    Hardly impeachable, but a fine spectator sideline sport

  8. I say let them do it. As a matter of fact Pelosi should get about 20 members of the Progressive caucus to go behind the lines and egged them on like we support you, go for it republicans impeach the Kenyan usurper

  9. I would love to see them try to impeach him..It would ensure getting the house back and never winning the white house again.

  10. The GOP/Libertarian/T Party has nothing. They use these faked “controversies” of their own making because that is ALL they have.

    Remember in 2009, Boehner stated the Congress GOP’s were all about “Jobs, jobs, Jobs…? Seen any lately?

    They did vote against EVERY jobs program ever since then. They are interested in THEIR OWN jobs and their rich owners and that’s it.

  11. Huck,

    You could be ‘right-on’ about the possibility of another ‘My Lai Massacre’ type event.

    The Repigs are the most anti-American bigoted and racist bunch of sub-humans this country has ever witnessed in the US Congress. Seditious Treasoners….one and all.

  12. A bunch of raving psychopaths. The President’s unbelievable inner strength and patience dealing with this nuts on a daily basis never fails to amaze me. If it was me, I’d round up every last one of these seditious traitors and throw them all in jail where they belong.

  13. Republicans don’t even bother to consider what they previously said, up to the minute.

    Republicans are pathetic, and will destroy the world to maintain their privilege.

    Good grief, will it ever end and Americans grasp that Republicans are incompetent?

  14. No President of these supposedly “United States” should have to endure what President Obama have had to deal with these past six years. To have an entire party of bigots and racist old white men and women questioning and criticizing his every decision has to be frustrating and exhausting. My heart and my prayers go out to this wonderful individual and his family. If there was any true justice in this country half of the Republican Party would be brought up on charges of treason and blatant disrespect for the office of President.

  15. Knowing what they now know about Bergdahl, I bet you that if President Obama had given them the 30 day “heads up” about how the plan was to trade him for those 5 Afghans, those Republican Congressmen (with some Democrats) would have Voted to let his A$$ rot over there with the Afghans.

  16. I believe that the Administration ALREADY knew about Bergdahl’s history. They of course interviewed the commanders and platoon members up and down the ranks. And of course they vetted those 5 Afghans for release, otherwise those 5 would have been the LAST to leave. (I have a sneaky suspicion that they implanted some tracking device in their body–somewhere ;)
    So, my assumption is Obama and his people knew that there would be an uproar, but said: F%$#@! ’em! We gonna do what’s right….and let the cips fall where they may. Bravo!

  17. Even IF the rethugs gain control of the senate (and that’s a BIG IF) they will need a 2/3 vote to convict on articles of impeachment and there is NO WAY that will happen. Once again the facts will come out and rethugs will slink away to the shadows to try and come up with another stupid scandal to hit PBO with.
    Maybe the guy was suffering PTSD and was kept on the line when he shouldn’t have been (and wandered off – intentionally or unintentionally)? We’ll see.

  18. The right wing use the impeachment tool for the base followers as a hating purposes and they don’t know why they hate the 1/2 black man in the white house, go figure!!!……. joe

  19. I think our President has finally reached that point when he thinks,”
    what is the point of consulting with them?”He knows, as we all know, they of course will oppose, and go ahead and do what he knows is the right thing to do. It doesn’t matter what he does or does not do they will always have an argument for him.If he decided not to release him,they would have said he doesn’t care etc. I have every confidence that our President did the right thing. I am so glad he did it and I congratulate him. God bless this President always?

  20. Here’s the thing that all of the Republican Congressmen know (but are carefully avoiding mentioning). Should The House actually deliver Articles of Impeachment (hey, it could happen), and the Senate convict (highly unlikely), what we get is President Joe Biden (considerably more Liberal than the rather Conservative Obama. THEN we could very well see a Vice President Hillary , giving her an excellent “Spring Board” for ’16 :)

  21. LMBAO You are in denial but its okay I know 18 million people would tell you to kiss where the sun don’t shine.

  22. A couple things that bother me are #1 even if the President was born in Kenya or Kingdom Fking Com he is still a US Citizen,his Mother was an American,hell he’s more American then the Rethugs party favorite Ted Cruz,#2 I agree with this so called Rethugigan Congress these Clowns do absolutely nothing,#3 they don’t seem to realize that they are the Slaves that so often talk about bringing back,they all work for the Cock Bros who tell them what to do how to do it and when to do it.Oh and please please try to impeach our President,see where that gets you.I live in St Louis Missouri we just went through this same crap with our Republican Senate trying to impeach our Democratic Governor.Why anyone ever votes for a Republican is so beyond me it’s insane.Now they bag the President because he did something right but didn’t ask for Congress permission even though it was their idea in the first place.Geez these guys are Stupid with a Capital S

  23. Nope. A raging success. Sorry you missed it. Operating on wishes and hate for fellow Americans is not the way to grow up

  24. And that djchefron is the true character of all rethugs. Kill those who do not think like you want nor bend to your wishes. to quote a piece I read once again: “if Pres Obama walked on water, the rethugs would complain he didn’t swim” They dislike, hate,are very angry that this half black man is in the White House and that they did not succeed in taking the Presidency in his second term.

  25. I don’t believe that there is any better way of energizing the Democrats to get out and vote in November than for the House to bring Articles of Impeachment against this President, and the smart Repub’s in DC know it – it would most definitely be a bad move on their part; but the President seems capable of strategically outmaneuvering these guys no matter what Wiley-Coyote scheme they come up with.

  26. Congressional Republicans have been shouting into the wind, calling for Obama to be impeached … ever since he was originally elected in 2008.

    The House Republican majority and Senate minority have become obsessed with discussing and voting on meaningless, totally symbolic, wholly partisan proclamations as a means of avoiding any discussion of useful, substantive, productive legislation that meets the needs and concerns of the American people at large.

    Stop the Press! Obama ate a cheeseburger last week. Impeach him now!

    That is not a joke. I remember when he put Dijon mustard on a burger and the Reich had a collective freakout.

  28. Seriously Folks, is anyone surprised? This is a party that made itself political arm of the KKK and their sole aim has been to get that N word out of the White house by any means Necessary and the nation be damned!

  29. We probably knew that the House of retros would raise a stink when Obama would take an action (on anything.) This in the case of getting an American soldier released. They raise a stink. They stink. Their party stinks.

  30. Did everyone forget to mention that this man was a deserter, became Islamist, was teaching the Taliban how to make bombs, and actually sent out emails filled with anti-American hate speech and calling us “disgusting?” Did anyone remember that Obama signed on the Defense Act that negotiating with terrorists is illegal and a high offense? America does NOT negotiate with terrorists. Does ANYONE have any idea how much danger he put us and Middle Eastern villages in by releasing high ranking terrorists? What about the ACTUAL soldier that is being held up in a Mexican prison who isn’t a deserter and has served faithfully and honorably? Why is there no real rush to free him? This is ridiculous. This man was a voluntary deserter that got many men killed when they went searching for him and became one with the Taliban. Obama is completely in the wrong. its not a “Democrat” or “Republican” thing, it is an ILLEGAL thing.

  31. Showing results for The most powerful man on earth to day…have stop the republican, in every attempt maid, to discontinue his work for the American people.This is very disgraceful and gatherers SELF DESTRUCTIVE EVIDENCE AND NO RESPECT by the republican, for our president.

  33. (Taps playing in the background)

    America was a great experiment. It was supposed to be a nation of greatness, but she lasted only 238 years before turning over and passing away.

    America is no longer a democracy; America is now an oligarchy that caters to corporate fascism.

    It had a group of people called Congressmen who were supposed to find out what the people wanted and then pass appropriate laws to assure that their wants and needs would be met. Sadly, and to its eternal shame, it began its downward path to the end when its Supreme Court made disastrous decisions that legalized corruption.

    America died a quick death when the people voted for a man of courage and val our but had had one unforgivable feature, he was black.

    A couple of brothers reformed the racist John Birch Society and renamed it the Tea Party and encouraged it to destroy everything decent and kind about America.

    America, I mourn for thee. I miss you. All the sacrifices made were for naught.

  34. They want to impeach one of the best presidents, yet they would not do this to bush chainey romsfeld rice McCain for the covering up of the wars they started over oil, the terrorism of their own citizens, the lies deceit and treason that they caused before, during and after 9/11, and the fraud, deception and theft that rethuglicans committed under bush and the bush family think Americans will vote for seb bush another war mongering thief to be president

  35. republicans suck, so freeing an american is wrong, why did they free McCain then or is that lies as well, don’t forget McCain told state secrets to north Korea which ermm is that treason?

  36. the u.s. has now negotiated with terrorists. every american over in the mid east is now a target. military , people visiting family or on business. what is obama going to give up when the wave of kidnapping happens ? other prisoners , political considerations , cash payouts…then there will be yet more kidnappings…i cant stand any of these govt officials , republican and especially liberals. common sense and reasoning seem to be missing entirely. if people break the law they get charged and go to prison , why is this person that has made one irrational move after another immune. with the list of things that obama has done it is quite clear that he has an agenda that involves destroying liberty and the very country he is president of…and the u.s. deserves it for voting him in twice and doing nothing when he breaks the very laws he is in charge of , i saw your silly article, it bounced right off me as to dumb to note…enjoy the very near futurewhen the u.s. isa3rdworldjunkheap.

  37. So what you are saying is for the past 13 years we have bombed back to the stone age, killed 10’s of thousands of their civilians, supported regimes that hunted and murdered them because according to them we are the great Satan, we did all of that and more and we were not at risk? But since we did a prisoner swap which I will remind you at the end of the year according to international law the Taliban prisoners would have had to be released, now we are at greater risk? Where the hell do you people comeup with simple ass logic? Out your ass? Damn stupid is as stupid does. I got an idea try thinking for yourself for a change. Its very refreshing

  38. Why do most liberals use hateful and nasty language to express their views. It only shows what’s inside of them. They could express their views in a civilized way and still get their point across. Obama and all his lies have deceived millions of Americans and he has aided the enemy and made America less safe in releasing the Gitmo prisoners who hate America and want to do harm to Americans all over the world. This is treason and he should be impeached. How long will it take for people to realize that our president does not have America in his best interest and is doing everything in his wicked power to destroy it. Impeach. Impeach. Impeach. etc.

  39. @John I guess you miss the news that Bush release over 500 and one of them is suspected in the Bengazzziiii attack. Hateful words that’s rich. Listen here wingnut we tried working with rethuglicans even to the point of using your own policies only to be told go eff yourself for no other reason you are a bunch of racist women hating white supremacy homophobic assholes. Was that good enough for you.

  40. If only that was the Republicans plan. You have to understand one thing; the Republicans know that they will not win another presidency. If a candidate does not go to the extreme in the primaries, they will lose. The winner ends up being too extreme for the general.

    So, enter impeachment. If they win the midterms, they will impeach both Biden and Obama. Thus the third in line will be the Speaker of the House who probably will be Eric Cantor. If Boehner is not replaced that is. If not, then he is president and they regain the White House as well.

  41. If you break the law you get punished plain and simple.big you were driving a car and your friends robbed a store when you stopped off to get gas you would go to jail period end of story even if you did not know you would still be an charged with a crime after the fact. Even though Obamas intentions were nobile he still broke the law and should be charged with a crime

  42. I wish when the baggers make their claims they would stick around and defend the idiocy. Charlie may be wrong a lot of times but she will stand up for her believes and that’s why she has my respect. Shh, Don’t tell her
