So, I’m sitting here at Western CPAC listening to Floyd Brown compare President Obama to Hitler and Ed Morrissey meets my bulging eyes. Here’s what Ed says:
If that wasn’t bad enough, Brown then drew parallels between Obama and Adolf Hitler and the Nazi seizure of power in the 1930s. I have no love of Barack Obama as President, but one would have to have never studied the Nazis in order to claim that the Democratic majority is following in their footsteps. They have a radical agenda that is a disaster for America in both the short and long terms. There are plenty of grounds to argue for their defeat in the next election, and fortunately for us, the Democrats are making most of them for us, which is why they’re crashing in the polls. However, the Democrats are not rounding up opposition and throwing them in camps, shooting them on the streets, or passing bills granting Obama dictatorial power. Those arguments do nothing but make a certain portion of the grassroots look ill-educated and hysterical.
If we want to “remove” Obama from office, we have an election in 2012 that will do the trick nicely, if we can remain focused on it. If we want to cut into his power, the midterms in 2010 give us the same opportunity we seized in 1994. Calls for impeachment only make us less credible for both efforts.
Barack Obama got elected through no nefarious plot. He won because he won the majority of Americans over with his Hope-n-Change message. Is Obama delivering on his promises? No. Do I believe he’s a horrible president with destructive policies? Yes. Do I believe that we should hire new management in 2012? Absolutely. But this whole notion of impeachment with no impeachable offenses is just crazy talk. It undermines the message. Ultimately, it undermines Republicans.
