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 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.

  1. The truth about Norquist ought to be enough to sink the whole Republican party in disrepute and contempt.

    Here’s a guy who is not an elected official, who has obtained the allegiance of a large contingent of our nation’s duly elected representatives simply by threatening them with his ability to end their careers by swinging enormous assets into the campaign chests of drones of his own choosing – who would then run against the poor bastards with heavy attack ads in their own home districts during their State Primaries.

    Shouldn’t there be a law against this kind of extortion?
