Conservative Group Floats Obama Impeachment for Wrecking Stock Market, Really?

Right wing groups will stop at nothing to blast President Obama for just about anything, even the most preposterous. Conservative Capital Hill Daily sent the Citizen United’s listserv a query Tuesday, floating the idea of impeaching President Obama because he wrecked the stock market. Um, that was the very day the stock market hit 15,056 in a historic high.

When Obama took office on January 20, 2009, the Dow Jones was at 7,949. Over the last 4 years, it has gone up approximately 90 percent before reaching a new high today.

It’s important to remember that the health of the stock market is very different from the health of the overall economy. Middle class wages are stagnating and millions are still unemployed or underemployed.

But when a conservative organization claims ignores reality in such a blatant way, one can’t help but quote former Rep. Barney Frank: “On what planet do you spend most of your time?” Source

These right wing groups stop at nothing to discredit President Obama by any means. This isn’t just about despising him because he’s a Democrat. There’s a name for this, but I just won’t say it.

    I’m sure if we look hard enough there will be a conservative group out there who will find fault with Obama for successfully taking out Bin Laden. How do people this divorced from reality feed and clothe themselves is what I want to know.

    The reason for this insanity can be explained in in the fact that the Capital Hill Daily is run by and for Floyd Brown and that name says it all to all who know his history.

    Reason and truth isn’t part of his game plan, never has been… Never will be.

    Brown co-founded Citizens United… produced the famous “Willie Horton” commercial to name but a few of his misdeeds.

    His unsolicited ‘help’ to the George H.W. Bush Re-Election Campaign is another example of how Floyd Brown operates:

    In 1992, Brown headed up the Presidential Victory Committee, which backed the candidacy of George H.W. Bush. In March of that year the Bush campaign sought to halt the committee’s efforts to raise money. Bobby Burchfield, acting as Bush campaign counsel, wrote to Brown, “Your group has neither asked for nor received permission to solicit funds using the name of George Bush. The president strongly disapproves of this misleading use of his name and reputation.”
    .
    […]
    .
    … the Bush-Quayle campaign filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Brown, seeking to distance itself from his tactics, and calling Brown and his associates “the lowest forms of life”.

    Here’s what others have said about him:

    Salon.com magazine: “He has given conservatism a rank smell for two decades—and if there is a racist odor to the coming general election campaign, it is likely to emanate from his vicinity.”
    .
    Mary Matalin: “I’m not a big fan of Floyd Brown…He gave us the Willie Horton ads that the Republican Party has had to eat for two election cycles now.”
    .
    USA Today: “[Brown has] established himself as one of the nation’s dirtiest political strategists.”
    .
    George Stephanopoulos: “Floyd Brown is a slimy thug for hire.”

    Wouldn’t it be great if this was a rarity on the political right?
