For example: If you Google “impeach Obama” and look at the results, you will think that there is overwhelming support for impeaching President Obama. You will see over 1 million search results, including headlines like, “Movement to impeach Obama snowballing!”
Of course, that article notes that the support for the “Impeach Obama movement” has “mushroomed” to 40,000 members, which is a whopping 0.01% of the population. But still, when you use words like “snowball” and “mushroom” it makes it all sound very impressive.
Other articles promise to be more informative and educational, with titles like “Should Obama be Impeached?” Unfortunately, however, this doesn’t so much answer the question as simply provide another poll, which asks the completely neutral and not-biased-in-any-way question: “After 4.5 years of doing everything possible to destroy America, is it time to impeach Emperor Obama?”
That poll is a little interesting, however, because it breaks down responses by a number of demographic factors. The most interesting demographic result is that 100% of the pagans who responded to the survey said that they are “not sure” whether Obama should be impeached. That’s got to tell you something.
But when scouring the internet, the news, and the politicians for actual reasons to impeach Obama, the results come up surprisingly thin. Apart from, of course, the fact that “Emperor Obama” has spent “4.5 years doing everything possible to destroy America.”
Some of the more specific accusations include:
1) He did things like Obamacare that we think are unconstitutional
2) He appointed people to positions without asking permission first
3) He didn’t completely fix all immigration problems immediately
The thing is, though, that none of these so-called “reasons” matter, if you are a true conservative. What matter is how angry you are able to get people.
So as long as 0.01% of the population thinks that Obama should really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really-times-ten-thousand …. be impeached….
…well, then, mathematically that’s basically the same as though everyone wanted him to be impeached, now isn’t it?
