You may not be terribly familiar with Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), but he’s been one of the leading voices decrying Republican efforts to impeach President Obama. That effort has already been exposed to be a key tool in the Democrats’ desperate arsenal of 2014 fundraising tactics, and while the Dems’ outrage over impeachment chatter may be real even if it is overstated, there’s no doubt that a huge double standard exists when one looks back at their behavior during the presidency of George W. Bush. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) has even been caught blatantly lying in claiming that her party never pursued Bush’s impeachment, but her own YouTube videos prove otherwise.
Still, the Left has been more than happy to ignore any inconvenient truths about their own hypocrisy here, especially if it means they can distract voters while also raising some campaign cash.
“Is this any different than what Democrats did to George W. Bush?,” asked Fox’s Chris Wallace of Congressman Jeffries.
“It’s completely different,” Jeffries asserted. “Then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi clearly said impeachment is off the table.”
“Basically, that’s what John Boehner said this week too,” responded an incredulous Chris Wallace.
“John Boehner did not say that. He did not make an unequivocal statement,” whined Jeffries, as he began to go off on a talking point about Ted Cruz controlling the House of Representatives…even though Cruz is actually a senator.
Ah, that lovable Democrat hypocrisy. You can never get enough of it. Incidentally, if anyone has video of that “unequivocal statement” Pelosi made against impeaching George Bush, I’d love to hear it. We’d probably have a better chance locating footage of Nancy getting botox injections than we would of her supposedly silencing the flock of Democrats who wanted to impeach Bush AND Cheney during her reign.
Sorry, that was a totally inappropriate comparison. I mean, the botox injections are clearly a real thing.
