Barack Obama can never be impeached. He has the best impeachment insurance possible—look at the people in line to succeed him:
1. Joe BidenFirst in line is Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., the walking talking gaffe machine. This is the guy who talked about Franklin Roosevelt going on television in 1929 to talk about the stock market crash… never mind that Roosevelt wasn’t president in 1929 and there were no televisions yet. While he and Obama were running for the White House he announced that Hillary was better qualified to be vice president and shouted at a state senator in a wheelchair to stand up so people could see him. Let’s be serious here—impeachment trials take place in the senate and they know him all too well over there. They know he’s had brain surgery twice and acts like it. Even Republicans would never vote to remove Obama with Joe Biden in the on-deck circle.
2. Nancy Pelosi
3. Robert Byrd
4. Hillary Clinton
5. Timothy Geithner
It doesn’t get any better after Biden. Next in line is Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi. There might not be a single person in the whole United States of America, even in San Francisco, who wants to see Nancy Pelosi sitting in the Oval Office. She’s a bird brain who tried to crawl away from her contradictions on Iraq by accusing the CIA of lying to her even though not one single other person in congress will back her up, not even her own staff. This is the woman who pushed through Obama’s trillion-dollar “stimulus bill” simply to avoid delaying her vacation to Rome and tried to sell it to the public by announcing that 500 million Americans were losing their jobs every month. That’s 500 million out of a total population of 300 million. Each month.
Third in line is President pro tempore of the Senate Robert Carlyle Byrd, the 91-year-old former “Exalted Cyclops” of the Ku Klux Klan in West Virginia. Byrd is so old he practically drools on the microphone during speeches. God help us if we get this far down the line of succession. Imagine the irony of electing our first black president, officially apologizing for slavery, and then putting the KKK into the Oval Office. That wouldn’t be just a step backward, it would be a leap backward.
Fourth in line is Secretary of State Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton. Too bad Byrd already used the step backward issue because we’ve already experienced a Clinton White House and it wasn’t pretty. We don’t want that circus again, do we? Never mind the oddness of elevating a woman who couldn’t negotiate peace in her own marriage to chief diplomat of the entire nation, Hillary was given an insurmountable lead at the beginning of the last presidential campaign and it was surmounted, so we know she lacks management skills. And we know she has more baggage than a charter flight to Cancun.
Fifth in line is Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Franz Geithner, the little boy-faced idiot who has been engineering that debacle we call The Bailout. Geithner is forty seven years old and looks seventeen, has already looked decidedly foolish a number of times in his brief public career, and looks like a loud noise would make him stain his undershorts. This is the guy whose first press conference boiled down to “I don’t know,” leading journalists to wonder why he held a press conference if he didn’t know anything. The one positive of making him president is that he could pardon himself for all the times he didn’t pay income taxes.
At sixth we finally have a man with some credentials, Secretary of Defense Robert Michael Gates. He’s supposed to be pretty smart. Trouble is, even this guy makes people wonder. On June 18, talking about North Korea, he said the following: “We do have some concerns if they were to launch a missile to the west in the direction of Hawaii.” Hawaii is to the east, not the west, Mr. Gates. When you look at the map, east is toward your right hand. No, your other right hand.
Good help is hard to find but, gee whiz, what a collection of losers and nincompoops. No matter what Obama does, we cannot—simply cannot—impeach him. The replacements are downright scary.
