Impeach Biden? Please, NO!

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!

  1. If there ever was a reason to impeach, it’s Biden.
    Can’t do a criminal prosecution. Yet.
    Get the House and Senate solidly. Charge Harris ala Spiro Agnew. When she steps down, impeach Brandon.
    Do not approve a new Veep. With Brandon gone Speaker steps up.
    Then we correct the course.
    Fever dream.

    1. I think that’s the easiest way to do it, Ed! But it’s a lot more difficult than we make it out to be. And who in the House would you suggest become speaker? Kevin McCarthy? Or is there someone better? McCarthy certainly is in line to be Speaker next year if the GOP wins back the House! And my only problem with the scenario you’ve outlined is the Senate. You’re going to need 67 GOP Senators on board with it. That’s a HUGE lift looking at who’s up for election this cycle!

  2. I absolutely agree with your conclusions. There is no lemon law in presidential elections. The only way to get rid of that junker is to suffer four long years of incompetent leadership. What I think amazes me more than any other fact of our electoral system, is that few of our citizens ever learn any lessons from their past mistakes. They just keep on buying those junk cars.

    Neither have “party hacks” learned any valuable lessons from impeachment. As you so well point out, impeachment proceedings are a waste of time with significant risk (and consequences) for failure. In the case of Trump, the impeachment fiascos weren’t an assault on his presidency as much as they were an assault on the people who elected him. Any party that goes through the process of impeaching a sitting president, and fails to secure a conviction in the Senate, always comes away looking foolish and trite. The GOP is already at odds with at least a third of the population, so we should wonder why anyone in the GOP should be wasting their time, and ours, with such proceedings. And, of course, the fact remains that barring some gosh-awful behavior caught on camera, the senate will never convict a sitting president.

    Ted Cruz is his own worst enemy — and I’m afraid that he’s just too darn stupid to realize it. Your post today is “spot on.” I may print it and mail it to Cruz and my Representative in the House.

    1. Wow! I’d be honored for you to share it with anybody! I’m just hoping beyond hope that the GOP once they do take over Congress, does the right thing. I’ve found by watching that Democrats are much better at leading and Republicans are terrible at it. Republicans all have the good ideas, but don’t know how to get them enacted. Democrats (probably because they’ve been the majority party a lot longer) have terrible ideas, but get them passed. If only they could switch that around a bit, we COULD make America great again!
