"McALLEN, Texas – Observing what he could only describe as “chaos on the border” during a midnight tour of the Rio Grande on Friday, Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, concluded, “President Obama is begging to be impeached.”
“For all I know, Obama is preparing to process five million illegal immigrant kids and teenagers into the United States,” Stockman said upon observing border operations near McAllen, Texas.
“He wants us to impeach him now,” Stockman theorized, “before the midterm election because his senior advisors believe that is the only chance the Democratic Party has to avoid a major electoral defeat. Evidently Obama believes impeachment could motivate the Democratic Party base to come out and vote.””
I get what Rep. Stockman is trying to get across, although I would disagree that Obama is “begging” for it. I would use the expression “treading water” instead. This is just what comes with the territory. I mean, for almost as long as I have been alive, I have lived under two-term presidents, all of which had been absolutely hated towards the end of their stint in the Oval Office.
Sure, there is plenty to complain about when it comes to Obama, but I am pretty sure everyone hated Bush and Clinton also at the end of their second terms. Illegal immigration, jobs, partisan gridlock, second amendment, domestic spying, foreign intervention, the list goes on for quite a while with the number of issues Obama has faced. I am not even saying that he has a done a good job tackling these issues; the second term president in recent history always comes out of it looking like a really bad guy.
Alas, at least we have this to look forward to!
