Ted Cruz (R-TX) has come out already and said that if the GOP takes over the House of Representatives as is thought this November, one of the first actions that they should do is impeach Joe Biden.
I’m not a fan of that strategy just yet.
Oh, don’t get me wrong. I believe that Biden’s lack of enforcing the law on the southern border and allowing all sorts of illegals into our country is certainly an impeachable offense. That’s not the point. The point is that unless there is something very strong going on with the Republican efforts in the Senate that I can’t see, it’s an absolute waste of time.
Think back. Andrew Johnson was impeached way back in 1868. We went from 1868 to 1998, some 130 years later. And since that time, in a span of just 22 years, we’ve seen two more impeachments, none of them have resulted in the removal of a president. And impeaching Joe Biden won’t either.
First of all, all impeaching someone does is get the country thinking that the impeaching party is wasting time and not doing the country’s business. It hurt the Republicans when they impeached Clinton. It hurt the Democrats when they tried to impeach Trump the first time, and it will hurt them again this time (along with the uber-socialist ideas they’ve been trying to get passed). If the GOP were to win the House and try to impeach Biden without a safe number of votes in the Senate (67), then the same thing is going to happen to them.
Joe Biden is actually more valuable to the GOP in the short run sitting in the Oval Office than he is getting impeached and ending his political career in disgrace. He’s going to end his career in disgrace regardless what happens. The whole point is, do you really want K-baby Harris waiting in the wings to take over? She’s going to be worse than Biden because at least she’s lucid and realizes the socialistic antics she’d be making. And unless you can get someone out of office, as would have been the case with Richard Nixon because of Watergate, then you’re wasting time and money. That just doesn’t make sense.
Ted Cruz is wrong on this one. There is no reason to impeach Biden. I go back to the old Mark Twain quote, “When someone is making a fool of themselves, get out of the way and let them finish the job.” The same thing holds true in politics today. Let the Dems’ destroy themselves. So far, they’re doing a good job of it!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
