I continue to marvel at the ability of the Democratic Party to shoot themselves in the foot. They’ve officially just taken the first step toward impeaching Captain Cheese Doodle. Could they be any more short-sighted? Have they no understanding of what it means to have an actual plan?
The Republicans have been, for the most part, blindly following Trump as he circles the drain. If this is allowed to continue the Democrats will have plenty of ammunition for a successful impeachment down the road AND be in a very strong position to take back at least one House of Congress. Then they can block anything else Trump attempts, including his Supreme Court nominee.
But if the Democrats move to impeach now, less than a month into his Presidency, they’d not only FAIL due to lacking the votes required to impeach, but would pay a steep political price for their failure. They’d likely lose the mid-terms and Trump would be further emboldened to continue his madness, unabated.
Does that sound like a good plan to you?
Let’s say I’m wrong and somehow they get enough Republicans to join the effort and impeachment DOES work. Well, then we’re stuck with Mike fucking Pence until at least 2020. Pence is even MORE of a radical, except he’s polite. He speaks well. He knows restraint. He plays the game. Trump is such an uncensored mess that he makes even Democrats look good. With Pence they wouldn’t have that luxury. And that means we’d be FUCKED in 2020 unless the corporate-Democrats allow their progressive base to take the reigns which, the way things stand right now, isn’t going to happen.
When the stakes are this high you cannot afford to play your cards recklessly. You study your opponent… watch, wait… THEN strike when victory is assured. You don’t go all-in with a 5 and a 3. Wait for the pair of Aces. Pursuing impeachment now would be a self-defeating move for the Democrats and a dangerous one for the country.
But hey, don’t take my word for it. I mean, who am I to judge? It’s not like I correctly predicted that Trump would defeat Hillary or anything.
