Bolitics: The Scary A** Republicans Worry That Their Candidates Won’t Be Able To Beat Obama In 2012

Damn it feels good to be a gangsta Democrat.

That leaves a front pack of four: former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich of Georgia.

Normally, winnowing out pretenders would be a good thing. A smaller group of candidates, and a shorter primary than the 2008 cycle, helps limit self-inflicted damage and internal divisions in the party.

However, the dominant response from many Republicans to their current choices remains one of discontent. It has been this way for months, largely because each of the front-runners has a major flaw many think would keep them either from getting out of the primary or from beating President Obama should they win the nomination.

“There is this sense out there of, ‘So, anybody else?’” said Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform.

A Pew poll released on Wednesday did not help GOP psyches: Results showed 47 percent of respondents hoped to see Obama elected to a second term versus 37 percent in favor of a generic Republican candidate. The Pew poll did note the lack of a consensus GOP candidate helped Obama’s numbers. But nonetheless, Obama’s numbers are similar to how George W. Bush polled about this far from his successful re-election campaign.

They been scared since Obama got in office. They knew damn well that McCain was their last hope of retaining control of the country. Most of the U.S. never even heard of some of these Republican candidates. Another 4 for Obama!

Bolitics As Usual: Hatin’ Azz Congressman Dennis Kuchinich Says President Obama’s Action Against Libya Is Cause For Impeachment!

After declaring President Obama’s decision to order airstrikes on Libya a potential “impeachable offense,” Ohio Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich is calling for an immediate halt to all funds for any further military action in the conflict.

“Now the immediate thing that Congress needs to do when it returns is to cut off any funds for continuing in Libya and I intend to bring forward such an amendment,” Kucinich said in an interview with CNN, noting any legislative action would have to wait until after the current Congressional recess.

White House officials insist the President’s actions are well within the law, pointing to a letter sent by Mr. Obama to House Speaker John Boehner Monday. The letter emphasizes the airstrikes are part of an international mission to enforce a “no-fly zone” authorized by a United Nations Security Council Resolution.

The letter, the administration argues, satisfies the War Powers Act which requires the President to inform Congress within 48 hours of engaging in any military action.

“Our view is a mission of this kind which is time limited, well defined and discreet clearly falls within the president’s constitutional authority,” said Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes at a press briefing Monday.

Other Democrats came out to defend the President against the hatin’ a$$ congressman:

One key Democrat in the Senate dismissed any notion of impeachment in a radio interview on Tuesday. Michigan Democratic Senator Carl Levin told the Bill Press Radio Show there is strong bipartisan support for the U.S. mission in Libya, dubbed Operation Odyssey Dawn.

“I think we ought to focus on what the issues are here,” Levin said.

If it ain’t one thing it’s muthafuggin other, damn! Several other Presidents have taken military action in the same manner and they weren’t met with this “impeachment” BS. Folks will do whatever they can to keep our man Barry O out of office in 2012 won’t they? SMH
