Grover Norquist – Traitor, Constitutional Idiot

He says…

NJ: What if the Democrats still have control? What’s your scenario then?

NORQUIST: Obama can sit there and let all the tax [cuts] lapse, and then the Republicans will have enough votes in the Senate in 2014 to impeach. The last year, he’s gone into this huddle where he does everything by executive order. He’s made no effort to work with Congress. (here)

So… I’m not sure if he understands that not allowing really, really rich guys keep more money and not pay for the wars that they started is not an impeachable offense. I would say that by allowing it, it is almost an impeachable offense.

But, note the guy… the Senate doesn’t impeach. The Senate is the judicial body which hears the the impeachment brought by the House. If the House is in Democratic control, the Senate cannot impeach the President, much less try him for anything… especially letting tax cuts lapse…

Norquist is a moron, but oddly enough, a very, very powerful one. Republicans pledge allegiance to him before they do so to the Constitution.
