It may come to that. You see, Democrats and most everyone else like Hillary Clinton for President. Why is that? Among the reasons include she is everything that President Obama is not. Here is a list of six reasons (See the annotated list below):

  1. She is not a man.
  2. She is mature.
  3. She is competent.
  4. She is tough.
  5. She is emphatic.
  6. She is good for the economy.

The news is that John Boehner charges that Democrats have made up the impeachment talk to energize its base. What is the truth behind that?

  1. John Boehner initiated the lawsuit against the President which is assessed as a purely political ploy because the US Supreme Court would likely reject it for lack of merit.
  2. Sarah Palin said that it is time to impeach the President and many Republicans have had that on their lips a long time.

Now, Democrats don’t like Obama’s policies and management approach across a number of issues, however sometimes they are diametrically opposed on the reasons. There are divisions among hawks and doves, and petroleum and renewables, and the like. There are two years remaining and no one wants the President to screw up anymore.

After the midterm election, does it matter who impeaches the President? Maybe the Democrats should do it just to give Hillary a clean start?

“Boehner: Impeachment a Dem 'scam'

By Cristina Marcos - 07/29/14 10:50 AM EDT

The idea that Republicans would impeach President Obama is a “scam” perpetuated by Democrats, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday.
He accused Democrats of hyperbolizing talk of impeaching President Obama to boost their fundraising and turn out their base.

“It's all a scam started by Democrats at the White House,” Boehner said at the weekly House GOP leadership press conference.

“This whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president's own staff and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill. Why? Because they're trying to rally their own people to give money and show up in this year's elections,” Boehner said.

Boehner said the GOP does not intend to begin impeachment proceedings against Obama.

“We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans,” Boehner said.
The comments went farther that Boehner has previously gone in knocking down an impeachment trial balloon.

She is a Hildebeest.

“Edward Klein made quite a few headlines with his tell-all “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House” in 2012. But his new book, “Blood Feud,” expands things, dishing on what he claims is a jealous relationship between the Clintons and the Obamas — and why the prickly pals, for lack of apparently no warmer term, may make the 2016 presidential campaign quite a roller coaster ride.

The following are few excerpts from the book that releases this week from Regnery, via the New York Post.

Seems Michelle Has a Special — Um, How Do You Say It? ‘Pet’ Name? — for Hillary
On most evenings, Michelle Obama and her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett, met in a quiet corner of the White House residence. They’d usually open a bottle of Chardonnay, catch up on news about Sasha and Malia, and gossip about people who gave them heartburn.

Their favorite bête noire was Hillary Clinton, whom they nicknamed “Hildebeest,” after the menacing and shaggy-maned gnu that roams the Serengeti.”

'View' Crew on Hillary Papers: Applaud Clinton for ‘Maturely’ Considering Her Role in Bill’s Affair (NewsBusters)

The co-hosts of The View on Tuesday applauded Hillary Clinton for new revelations from the so-called “Hillary papers,” a journal of a deceased friend. The then-First Lady is quoted as questioning how she could have prompted her husband’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. Sherri Shepherd touted, “I have to applaud Hillary Clinton because she's not taking responsibility for it, but I think that shows a sign of maturity.”

By Emily Bartels-Bland

Hillary Clinton is more competent than President Obama, according to a new CNN/ORC international survey.

The poll was conducted from May 29 to June 1 (just before the release of Clinton’s new book “Hard Choices”), and surveyed 1,003 random voters.
On The Issues

Domestic Issues: 63 percent said Clinton would handle the economy well, versus 38 percent who think Obama is doing a good job in that area.

Foreign Issues: 63 percent said Clinton would perform well on foreign policy issues versus 40 percent for Obama.

She has been Secretary of State, carrying out policies from the Obama White House. She didn’t accomplish much, but she didn’t make any mistakes, except bumping her head and having to rest at an inopportune time at which she handed off to Susan Rice who flubbed the handoff.

Yes, she had to navigate Bill Clinton and that was a rough ride.

“Hillary Clinton: I Am Not Mitt Romney. And Voters Know That.

In a new interview, the former secretary of State said any comparison to the former presidential candidate is a “false equivalency.”

Hillary Clinton is still trying to downplay the significance of recent gaffes about her personal wealth, which Republican critics have pounced on as evidence that the presumed 2016 presidential front-runner is "out of touch."

"I shouldn't have said the five or so words that I said, but my inartful use of those few words doesn't change who I am," Clinton told PBS NewsHour's Gwen Ifill on Wednesday, referring to comments she made that she and her husband Bill were "dead broke" when they left the White House. She later tried to clarify her comments by saying the couple was different from others who are "truly well off" and don't pay "ordinary income tax."

In the interview, Clinton accused others of taking her comments out of context or trying to "create some caricature." When Ifill noted that such a strategy "sticks sometimes—ask Mitt Romney," Clinton emphatically rebuked the connection.

"That's a false equivalency," Clinton said. "People can judge me for what I've done. And I think when somebody's out in the public eye, that's what they do. So I'm fully comfortable with who I am, what I stand for and what I've always stood for."

She likes to shop until she drops.

“To promote economic development, she advocated a program like the $4.6 million “social impact bond” issued by Goldman Sachs. The firm will only profit if the program meets its goals of reducing the need for remedial education, meaning taxpayers will only end up paying for it if it works.

She will be a big proponent of free trade agreements, which she's said is more important than defense in establishing global leadership. So, you can expect her to push for less military spending, not more. (Source: The Daily Beast, Clinton Speech to Economic Club, October 14, 2011)

Her focus is on creating jobs and reducing income inequality. Although she is definitely her own woman, she will probably agree with many of Bill Clinton's 14 job creation ideas.”
