GOP Race Against the Alphabet Clock: Now at Capital Letter Ï-mpeachment

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) Floats the I-Word

Expect GOP Lockstep on These Topics
(Potential Articles of Impeachment List)

It was just a matter of time before someone in the GOP got serious about impeaching and trying to removing Mr. Obama from office since they couldn't beat him at the polls (twice as Mitch McConnell said was their primary goal). I now give you that someone: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) from South Carolina. Graham warned that Republican lawmakers would call for President Obama’s impeachment if he released more prisoners from Guantanamo Bay without congressional approval. 

Graham is a member of the Armed Services Committee and he also faces a tough contested reelection campaign. He just added language to the pending defense authorization bill that would require an up-or-down vote in Congress to approve the closure of Guantanamo.

Meanwhile, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-) said that kind of talk “... is not the right approach to warn President Obama about impeachment following the release of Guantánamo prisoners without congressional notice. To be honest with you, I'm not sure there are many people here that are focused on that right now.”

Obviously Sen. Graham is running scared. I also suspect that the entire GOP will wrap trunks and follow suit if their base smells blood and pushes for impeachment with their next pot of TEA. 

Can't wait to see Sen. Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz (R-Canadian from TX) take up the cause, then GOP Sen. Rand Paul (KY), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX) and any others in a tight reelection race this cycle.

Folks, this is about to get very nasty and very ugly very fast. Meanwhile, stalemate, gridlock, and do everything wrong Congress schedules their next break. Is this anyway to run a country or not!!
