(WASHINGTON) —Military vets left to die under V.A. care, giving up key Taliban leaders for a U.S. soldier who deserted his unit, opening the borders to thousands of unskilled indigents from Central America, allowing mass-murdering Islamists to overrun Iraq, lost IRS e-mails, and so much more… With this newest round of scandals coming from the Obama administration, talk of impeaching the nation’s 44th president has reached a pitch not heard in nearly two decades.
But while impeachment petitions permeate the internet and tea party organizations, and are even being drafted by conservative Republicans in Congress, senior GOP moderates are warning against such drastic action, be it warranted or not. They’re reasoning: impeaching President Obama, if successful, would essentially “fire” a federal employee whose flaws are so great that it would violate the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Under the federal ADA, an employee –government or private– cannot be terminated from their job or denied being hired if they can prove their rejection or dismissal was due to a physical or intellectual, or emotional disability; something Mr. Obama and his attorneys are perfectly capable of proving if ever pushed hard enough.
While entire states such as South Dakota have passed resolutions demanding the impeachment of the scandal-scarred president and Republican diehards in the House like Pennsylvania Rep. Lou Barletta toil to make the arduous ousting of Obama a reality, word has come down from senior GOP leaders that due to the Americans With Disabilities Act, such hopes of throwing Mr. Obama out of office are patently futile.
House Speaker John Boehner’s office released a memo to every House Republican Wednesday explaining that while Obama has repeatedly overstepped his executive authority, particularly since his re-election, lied about such enormous policies like the Affordable Care Act, and has proved himself –even to a growing number of Democrats– to be complicit if not willfully ignorant of the endless scandals in his administration, as well as being treacherously feckless in foreign affairs, that such egregious behavior is so ramped by Obama that it proves the President could easily be categorized as a having a “disability” or “disabilities” under federal law, thus shielding him from being removed from office.
Stated Boehner in his memo to Republican colleagues: “While President Obama has all but proven beyond a doubt to be incompetent, dishonest, ignoring the Constitution, apathetic to growing problems in this country and signing executive orders totally beyond his authority, inability to understand human nature and history, and placing the U.S. in increasing danger internationally, President Obama no doubt is suffering from various emotional and intellectual deficiencies that place him under the protection of the Americans With Disabilities Act. Therefore, it is with great regret that I must inform you that further discussions of impeachment serve no point, as the ADA protects Mr. Obama due to such indisputable disabilities.”
Fellow Republican and Louisiana representative John Fleming agreed with the House Speaker’s memo, although begrudgingly, as he had hoped to be involved in the charge to impeach Obama before he could do any more damage to the nation. Fleming, who is also a general physician by trade, said he still knows much about psychology and agrees: President Obama is simply too disabled to fire.
“It’s normal for people to occasionally think certain rules or laws are silly and shouldn’t be followed,” said Rep. Fleming to Capitol reporters Wednesday. “But to the extent (Obama) hasn’t obeyed laws and overstepped his bounds, believing that his agenda is too important to let constitutional restrictions and established procedures stand in his way show not only an extreme narcissism but megalomania so severe that it could be considered ‘disabilities’ under the ADA and secure him from impeachment …God---- it!”
“Then there’re Mr. Obama’s distinct learning disabilities,” said Dr. Ethan Lambert, Professor of Psychology and Child Development at George Mason University to Duh Progressive, Wednesday. “Given that so many of the economic goals of the President and his social agendas have almost always failed in other countries far less populated and complex than the United States, I would say that (Obama) has several learning disabilities, ranging from Executive Functioning to ADD, and Involuntary Dismissal, which is the inability to understand or accept unpleasant facts and information.”
“Without a doubt President Obama has made statements and displayed behavior typical of someone with a messianic complex, which is how someone with an innately low opinion of themselves –stemming from childhood– chooses to cope with their true feelings of inferiority,” said Dr. Lambert. “And that can also be considered a ‘disability’ under the ADA, because people with messiah complexes often ignore unpleasant things that threaten that false god-like image they have created of themselves. …I mean…shit, look, the guy’s an asshole, okay? Jesus, what else do you want me to say?!”
Word of Boehner and other moderate Republicans’ warning of the impossibility to legally impeach the President struck the White House as more of an insult than a relief.
Said new White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest during his press briefing Wednesday, “Of course we’re glad all this talk of impeachment is being laid to rest, but the reason that it would violate the Americans With Disabilities Act is just down-right insulting! President Obama has his ‘disabilities’, undoubtedly, and those are something he’s very sensitive about. For example, Mr. Obama had a handicap of 15 in the first year of his presidency, then improved it to just a four-handicap last year, except on courses close to salt water, which he says really messes up his swing with his nine and seven-iron. But so far this year Mr. Obama has dropped his handicap to eight; a ‘diasbility’, yes, but nothing that would ever hamper his duties as President.”
