Republican Sleazewipes Gearing Up to Attack Obama

Gearing up?!?!?!? What the fuck have they been doing already???

It’s sort of like when Ronald Reagan was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and everybody was saying “how could they tell?”

David Bossie was the leading pit bull during the Republicans’ “investigative” attacks on Clinton all during his presidency. He’s now the president of Citizens United. Yes, that Citizens United.

And his next mission is to advise victorious Republicans on how to best utilize their new political capital to attack Obama as viciously as possible; how to get the Obama administration and congressional Democrats hogtied and paralyzed. As with Reagan’s Alzheimer’s, if Obama and the Democrats are hamstrung and tied in knots, how will we know?

Bossie was one of the authors of Slick Willie, an anti-Clinton book put together by Citizens United in 1992. Bossie and his fellow Citizens United shitwads spent jillions of taxpayer dollars investigating Whitewater, the “murder” of Vince Foster, you name it. Somehow, Republicans didn’t seem concerned then about the budget, or safeguarding taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars.

Republicans are bragging that when they take over the House next January, they’ll be holding one investigation after another, trying to dig up something — anything — on Obama. Your tax dollars at work.

Republicans have spent the last two years placing holds on everything imaginable, including the funding to enforce laws that have already been passed. Maybe the occasional Democrat could grow a pair, and place a hold on the funding to investigate Obama. Just a thought, in case the Democrats ever decide to fight fire with fire instead of bringing a pocket knife to a gun fight.

Well we do have at least one with cajones...Alan Grayson. They are in such fear of him that he has been targeted by big bucks to defeat...they might get away with it.

Ballsy Dems do seem to be in short supply however.

I hate to sound like Chicken Little, but it seems the ferking sky is falling. Seriously.

Ahhh... remember when Pelosi took impeachment of Bush off the table because it would lead to future presidents being hamstrung by just the very thing the Republicans are threatening? Either the Democrats need new leadership, or we need a real opposition party.

watch the base go nuts when the investigations start

and since the republicans cant and wont govern (they love the status quo -- ensuring the rich remain rich and isoalted) they can use this time to bait and switch - placate the nuts with investigations and rob from the treasurey

i wouldnt be surprised if th4ey tried to impeach obama

Make that a pocket comb, and you've got it.

Lew, Pelosi's taking impeachment of Bush off the table notwithstanding, she has more spunk and grit than any 25 typical Democratic officeholders put together. She'd make one hell of a president, IMO.

The dems are as worthless as the Rushpubliscums are, in terms of a national organization. It really is time to go some other way.

SWA, are you saying it doesn't pay to look pretty?

jadedj: That's definitely the reason the Oligarchy is obsessed with defeating Grayson. If he loses I hope Obama will hire him in some sort of pit bull capacity.

Lew: Gee, imagine the fury and chaos if Democrats had impeached Bush. Republicans would have been furious, vengeful and determined to get even by investigating Obama and trying to derail everything he does. Good thing that didn't happen.

DC: I'm sure impeachment will be ON the table starting in January 2011.

SW: True, a pocket comb is more accurate.

JR: I don't know what that "some other way" will be, but this current mess sure as hell isn't gonna last much longer.
