Sensenbrenner: It’s called impeachment

It depends on what the meaning of lie is.

They can’t start the impeachment proceedings soon enough for me and we can start at the very top.  

From Jim Sensenbrenner:

“There is really no responsibility within the Justice Department,” Sensenbrenner said. “The thing is, if we don’t get to the bottom of this — and that requires your assistance on that — there is only alternative that Congress has and it is called impeachment, where our subpoena powers are plenary and there can‘t be any type of legal immunity or privilege that can be asserted on that.”

“But if we keep on getting pushed down the road and the can keeps getting kicked, and we don’t get closure to this, what is Congress to do so that we don’t spend all our time in court arguing privilege?” Sensenbrenner continued. “That is not a way to get at the truth.”

Obama recycles losing democrat themes of the past

Which presidential candidate said this in an ad: “I refuse to make your family pay more so that millionaires can pay less?” Who promised to “fight for seniors” against opponents who wanted to “slash Medicare?”

If you answered President Barack Obama, you’re about 27 years too late. Those pronouncements came from an ad for Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro, the Democratic pols who ran against Ronald Reagan in 1984. (Mondale’s ticket lost to Reagan in a landslide, winning only one state.)

I remember the collective sigh of relief at the defeat of Jimmy Carter.  And if we can only hold out a few more months we can turn this country around and get it humming again.

Kind of funny, but not really funny, how Obama is now so intent on raiding the Social Security “trust fund” seeing as how the FICA payroll tax is what funds Social Security.  There really is no trust fund as the money has been stolen and comingled with general funds, but they claim there is so let’s just pretend there is.  He now wants to continue to cut the amount of money taken in to fund Social Security, which is the FICA payroll tax.  This man is a snake in the grass. 

Find the hoe and chop that sucker in half.
