from the American Thinker:
Lately it’s hard to take John Boehner and his Coppertone tan seriously. However, when it appeared that the House Majority Speaker was proactively taking the wind out of Barack Obama’s ‘they want to impeach me’ sails, there was a glimmer of hope that someone on the right had actually grown a spine.
Republicans reiterating that impeachment was not an option exhibited a rare unified spirit. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) even hobbled up to the mic to reinforce Boehner’s proclamation that impeaching Barack Obama was a talking point that Democrats, not Republicans, were going on about.
Is that a pulse? Could it be that finally, after six long years of waiting, the geriatric wing of the Republican Party had actually mustered the strength to block the president’s desperate effort to divert attention prior to the midterms in November?
Or could it be that Obama’s pathetic attempt to garner sympathy at the expense of Republicans is a Saul Alinsky tactic?
Think about it -– the impeachment chatter on the left may very well ensure that the very thing Obama is accusing the right of wanting to do -– and goading them into vowing not to do it -– will clear the way for the president to do whatever he darn well pleases without obstruction.
After pointedly proclaiming that impeachment is off the table, Republicans will not be able to appropriately respond to impeachable offenses without looking like idiots who can’t keep their word.
Not for nothing, as they say in Brooklyn, but if this is the left’s strategy, it’s downright brilliant!
In Rule #4 of his book Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky advises his merry band of Lucifer-loving Alinskyites, one of whom is Barack Obama, to “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” Saul says that after you do, “you can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.”
Here is how the impeachment/no impeachment gambit would work:
