I grow frustrated at the DC bubble, its media pets, its politicians, staffers and consultants.
Nearly everyone there feels they are superior to the rule of law, and more intelligent than the rest of the American people who make the country work. Even a low-level staffer takes on an air of sophistication and nuance that us simple little pleebs out here just wouldn't understand. There is a mighty superiority complex that the American people have to deal with if they want access to their own government.
But, the most discourteous thing a beltway media-type can do is try to tell the American people that something can't be done because the opposition will fight back.
The next time you are at a high school football game (the season is almost here, thank the Lord), I want you to have a little sit down with the boys on your home team, and tell them not to score because the opposing team will almost certainly try to do the same.
The American people are hard-wired to see that justice is done. Avoiding doing the right thing in case the scary meanies might want to throw a punch back at us, is what we call being a wuss. So, in the end, I guess the beltway-types don't mind turning the American system of government into wusses and those that mock them.
Do they pay attention to their own polling? Do they see the reams of newspapers that show a weakened president and do they watch the television channels they star in? Do the media-types believe that the American people aren't paying attention?
How can you look at the list of things this president has done to this nation and not see that, if any President ever deserved to be impeached and removed from office, it is him?
While the media-consultant-political class in DC works hard to fight against what is the right thing to do, the American people want something done about this lawless president. Yet, we are told to "just wait," and in two years Obama will be term-limited out of office, and then somehow, we can get back to what we were doing before he arrived. But, the fact is, we can't.
If the leadership in the do-nothing Congress will not do their duty and use the last remaining political weapon they have, after relinquishing control of the purse to this eternally lawless president, you may as well kiss the American justice system goodbye.
The short-attention-span-style of governance by Congress is growing stale and tiresome. The American people can think of tons of reasons to impeach this president, yet we are supposed to believe that the beltway class has it under control, that they have a plan - which looks a lot like sitting on their hands and shutting the hell up.
That reminds me of another thing. When the American people rise up and demand new leadership, we are told to shut up and sit down. It's the kick-the-dog mentality that is foreign to the level-headed American. But, in DC, the party in charge kicks the minority party, and rather than rallying their base, the minority party kicks the dog, that is, us. That set-up spells disaster.
I say, give the Democrats what they want. Let them fund raise off of impeachment concerns. Just as money didn't help Eric Cantor, a message that resonated with the American way of life won the day.
If the American people really believed that Congress would stand up to the lawlessness of this president and his entire crooked administration, there would be a ripple effect across this great land, motivating every red-blooded American to work to install those who would carry out their Constitutional oath:
"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
When an American pledges allegiance to his flag, he believes that his Congressman shares a full-faith effort to do the same.
And, contrary to the beltway thought process, America is still very much focused on stopping this president before he does more harm.
