Have conservatives lost the intestinal fortitude to fight a real battle against Obama, especially one that involves impeachment?
Accusing the right of chickening out by using weak excuses for inaction, WND’s Joseph Farah has written a scathing column. He contends this is rarely, if ever, a problem for the “progressive” left, who never seem to give up their fight no matter how inconvenient it becomes.
On Aug. 5, I published a column in which I explained the next excuse that would be used for not holding Barack Obama accountable for even the most heinous impeachable offenses.
Here’s what I wrote: “Let me tell you the next excuse the right will have for not seeking impeachment. They’ll soon say it’s so late in Obama’s second and final term that there’s little point to beginning the protracted [impeachment] process. To that I point out the date today – Aug. 6, 2014. It’s more than 29 months before Obama is scheduled to leave office in January 2017.”
It didn’t take long for someone prominent to use my prediction like it was written as a talking points memo.
Here’s what Marine Lt. Bill Cowan, a Fox News analyst on terrorism, said in a recent speech in response to a question about whether Barack Obama had actually provided sufficient proof to prove his constitutional eligibility to hold the presidency: “You may be right. You may be absolutely right. Is he legitimate? We don’t know. And we may not know for another 100 years. The problem is we are living in the real world.”
In the real world, explained Cowan, Obama “was sworn in to be our president. And even if tomorrow someone found a real legitimate birth certificate somewhere else that said he couldn’t be our president, the legal process to push that through and get him out would far exceed the rest of the time he has in office.”
Long story short, Cowen said, “We’re stuck with the guy.”
Farah compares our current situation with that of the Founding Fathers:
It’s a recipe for the last two years of Obama’s being years of unrestrained tyranny. Why? Because it takes too much time and too much trouble to get rid of him.
Unbelievable! Aren’t you glad our Founding Fathers didn’t think like this? What if they said to themselves, “Yeah, the British are bad news, but it would take too long and be too difficult to rid ourselves of the occupiers.”
Conservatives and Republicans just don’t know how to fight. They don’t have the will, the motivation and the courage. And that’s why they lose.
That’s the real reason “we’re stuck with the guy.”
Given the ineffective nature of today’s conservative movement, it’s hard to argue with his reasoning.
