The Big "I" Word?

Jim Inhofe Mulls 'I-Word' After Benghazi -- Politico

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) said the fatal attacks on American diplomats in Benghazi could lead to President Barack Obama’s impeachment during a radio interview.

“People may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe said during a discussion of Benghazi on “The Rusty Humphries Show.” 

“I-word meaning ‘impeachment?’” Humphries asked.

“Yeah,” Inhofe said.

Humphries pointed out it was unlikely the Senate would vote to convict Obama even if the GOP-controlled House voted to impeach. 

Oh, good. This is the GOP's solution to Obama's policies?

They're already breaking the Impeachment glass? How much willful lawbreaking really went down - and, more importantly, evidence to back that up, do they think they have to even CONSIDER such a bad idea?

The GOP was handed this durning a Presidential campaign, bungled it then, and now want the ref to review the play? If they're going to do anything, they should at least find out what really happened, what went wrong, and who, (if anyone) is responsible.

If they want to look at the smoldering ashes and kick around the dust, fine, focus on the false narrative that was handed out and eaten by the press. Who lied, and what gain did they achieve? If they do that part well enough, they might be able to use it against the Democrats in the next Congressional election. Doubtful it'll carry enough weight to hurt Hillary's chances in the next Presidential, given that it bounced right off of Obama in the last general election.

But, to talk about Impeachment - now? Now? Well, to do that you look like a 55 year old bald man trying to pick up chicks in your Rolls-Royce Phantom... Small, ineffectual, and extremely sad - to the point of self satire.

Not to be outdone, George Will thinks Obama should be impeached since the IRS went after TEA party groups. Must be the overactive pollen in the air after all those droughts last year?
