Loony liberal watch

Hey, Barack Obama’s been elected – what the heck do we need Bush around for anymore?

Late last week, Chris Matthews – who infamously declared shortly after the election that it was his “job” to help the incoming Obama administration succeed – called for Obama to just go ahead and step into the role of President, and to effectively sidestep our current President (h/t: Tom Elia).

On Saturday, the NYT lovingly published a column by Gail Collins in which she talked about how Bush-Cheney should go ahead and step down now and allow Nancy Pelosi to take over the presidency until Barack Obama was sworn in as president in January … all for the “benefit” of the economy, of course. We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution anyway.

Unfortunately, Collins isn’t the only one who wants to see the Bush-Cheney admin ushered out of the WH stage right before Obama’s inauguration. Detroit Free Press columnist Rochelle Riley argued that Nancy Pelosi needed to stand up and be a leader by beginning impeachment proceedings against Bush-Cheney … for the “benefit” of the economy.

Hey, you know what? I somewhat agree. As I’ve argued before, if the Democrats really feel like Bush has run an unconstitutional administration, by all means, please go ahead and start the impeachment process. Yeah, I know they won’t really do it, because they’ve been lying about one of two things: Either they’re lying about their belief that Bush is a “war criminal” or they’re lying about their “commitment to the Constitution” because surely if they were commited to upholding the Constitution they’d have frogmarched Bush out of the WH long before now, right? :-?

    This is exactly what I was afraid of. And I’m afraid this is only the beginning.

    One wonders what they’d say if, in 2012, Mr Obama is defeated for re-election: would they advocate him stepping down early so the the Republican winner could take office?

    We have this delay built in to the Constitution because the incoming president has to get his administration together; right now, Mr Obama isn’t in any way prepared to govern, because he doesn’t have his staff settled down yet. Nancy Pelosi as a “caretaker” president is in even worse shape in that regard, having no plans at all.

    This is just the last manifestation of BDS.

    Patience is a discipline of true intellect. These buffoons who think they are the smartest people in the room, really shouldn’t be given an notice whatsoever. They are all so very deceived, as it was Nancy Pelosi and the Dem take over of Congress that has caused our present economic downfall, along with the FM scandals, thank you again Dems. I am figuring in 2010 these idiots will be rousted out of office, and in 2012 the others will be tossed out. We shall see, you just can’t run a country on some of the stupid ideas that these guys have come up with and expect the people not to finally get tired of it. What was the major reason the Republicans lost?? Well in 2004 & 2005, they were spending money like drunken sailors, and were acting like idiots. It won’t take long before the People take notice, no matter what the lies of the Main Stream Media. Eventually the People will figure it out. – Lorica

    I’m sorry, but I don’t believe there is going to be an election in 2012. When they announce at THIS point–before anyone is officially elected–their intent to ignore the Constitution, why should we suppose they will respect it in the future?

    You don’t have to look very far to find the crazy liberal illuminati that are slowing filling our government. And Obama is not really keep his word yet by giving us some balance of left and right in his administration. But what can you do. Wait and see.
