I Agree With Obama On This

If this becomes a habit well obviously I’m going to the doctor for a complete evaluation but when he’s right he’s right

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama laid out list of political shortcomings he sees in the Bush administration but said he opposes impeachment for either President George W. Bush or Vice President Dick Cheney.
Obama said he would not back such a move, although he has been distressed by the “loose ethical standards, the secrecy and incompetence” of a “variety of characters” in the administration.
“There’s a way to bring an end to those practices, you know: vote the bums out,” the presidential candidate said, without naming Bush or Cheney. “That’s how our system is designed.”
The term for Bush and Cheney ends on Jan. 20, 2009. Bush cannot constitutionally run for a third term, and Cheney has said he will not run to succeed Bush.
Obama, a Harvard law school graduate and former lecturer on constitutional law at the University of Chicago, said impeachment should not be used as a standard political tool.
“I think you reserve impeachment for grave, grave breeches, and intentional breeches of the president’s authority,” he said.
“I believe if we began impeachment proceedings we will be engulfed in more of the politics that has made Washington dysfunction,” he added. “We would once again, rather than attending to the people’s business, be engaged in a tit-for-tat, back-and-forth, non-stop circus.”

He’s 100% correct.

    They love to point out Obama is a Harvard Law grad, but they don’t point out that he never was able to pass the bar . . .

    I consider Obama to be neck and neck with Hillary for the title of “Worst Possible Presidential Candidate 2008”, but he proves that old adage “Even a broken clock is right twice a day”.
    Captain Ed expressed similar comments, BTW. He also suggested reading the comments to the USA Today story…..and it’s a depressingly good idea.

    Speaking of reading comments, did you read the ones in the Mother Jones interview that Insta linked to the other day? Absolutely brilliant in their moonbattery.

    Jeez, Mr. B, those comments at Mother Jones are indeed brilliant. They make me avert my eyes, every time.
