Hillary Clinton isn't president yet. She hasn't even won the Democratic nomination. But a Republican congressman is already getting ready for the opportunity to impeach her -- on the first day of her hypothetical presidency.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) recently spoke with talk radio host Matt Murphy and said the real issue with Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state is "how many lives she put at risk by violating all rules of law that are designed to protect America's top-secret and classified information from falling into the hands of our geopolitical foes who then might use that information to result in the deaths of Americans."
Brooks added Republicans are going to make sure this issue follows Clinton into office, should she be elected president in 2016.
"And in my judgement, with respect to Hillary Clinton, she will be a unique president if she is elected by the public next November, because the day she's sworn in is the day that she's subject to impeachment because she has committed high crimes and misdemeanors," he said.
"Welcome to the White House Madam President, now get the hell out!" Interesting to note that just because Hillary isn't black does not mean the Republicans will treat her any less shamefully than they did her predecessor.
I guess perhaps this is their twisted way of proving they were not racists after all.
You might all remember that it was during President Obama's inauguration that the Republicans decided to piss in his Cheerios every day until he left office as well.
And it increasingly looks like they will get their chance to wizz in Hillary's Wheaties as well, since a recent poll shows her numbers jumped back up after her debate performance:
In the latest showing of post-debate momentum, Hillary Clinton commands the Democratic field in a new Monmouth University national poll released Monday.
Clinton took 48 percent, while her closest competitor, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, earned just 21 percent. Vice President Joe Biden, who is weighing a run but has not committed, sits at 17 percent. For Clinton, it's an increase from 42 percent in the same poll last month, and nearly back to the level of support she enjoyed in August.
You know I guess the argument could be made against Hillary that electing her will continue, if not exacerbate, the partisanship in Washington.
But let's be honest with ourselves, do we really think there is ANYBODY among the Democratic candidates that the Republicans WOULD be willing to work with?
I mean besides Jim Webb, who for some reason I think the Republicans might embrace with open arms. Which is reason enough not to choose him in my opinion. (Update: It looks like Webb might be a moot point for Democrats as he is now considering a run as an Independent.)
Let's fact it, no matter who we elect it's going to be eight more years of partisan bickering and political warfare.
We might as well accept that and choose, not only the candidate most likely to beat the Republicans in 2016, but also the one that will drive them out of their ever loving minds for two glorious terms.
