Louie Gohmert (R-Lunatic) claims that President Obama is close to committing a “high crime and misdemeanor” if the U.S. government defaults on its debt, just a day after saying that the president would be committing an “impeachable offense” if the U.S. defaults as a result of not raising the debt ceiling, which must be raised by Thursday.
The debt ceiling, of course, is dependent upon Congress passing a bill to raise it, which they have not done because House Republicans like Gohmert can’t get their collective heads out of their as*es, much less reach an agreement amongst themselves. They wanted to defund Obamacare, or at least delay it, but after that strategy failed miserably, they are like headless chickens right now, undecided on what direction they should go in, as the clock ticks.
Just look at what John Boehner said today after meeting with House Republicans:
There are a lot of opinions about what direction to go. There have been no decisions about what exactly we will do. But we’re going to continue to work with our members on both sides of the aisle, to try to make sure that there’s no issue of default and to get our government reopened
Translated, that means “We don’t know what the hell we are doing, because we are all f*cking clueless.”
Gohmert said on Fox today in his Texas accent, “A majority in the House should be a sign to the Senate that we need to negotiate,” Gohmert opined. “We have sent over compromise after compromise after compromise with ourselves. Our own leadership proposed yet another compromise and [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid said all of the sudden, he thinks that’s a slap at bipartisanship.”
“He wouldn’t know bipartisanship if it came up and slapped him and said, we’re bipartisan,” Gohmert continued. “So, I don’t need to hear any crap from Harry Reid about bipartisanship. He doesn’t know bipartisanship, nor does the president.”
“And one other thing,” he said. “This debt default, if the president instructs the treasury secretary that — though the money is there to pay interest — if he instructs him to default, I think we’re getting close to a high crime and misdemeanor that would harm this country.”
