British Subject Calls for Military Coup d'Etat at the White House. No, Really.

Martin Lewis at the Huffington Post is calling for the head of the Joint Chiefs, Gen. Peter Pace, USMC, to relieve President Bush of his command as Commander-in-Chief of U.S. Armed Forces and place him under arrest for “Conduct Unbecoming an Officer and a Gentleman.” And apparently he’s not joking, and he quotes extensively from the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

I think they’re becoming unhinged. I’ve heard of “Bush Derangement Syndrome” before, but this has got to be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. It’s kind of like Hillary Clinton calling for Nouri al-Maliki to step down as the Iraqi prime minister. He’s come to office by a duly elected Iraqi government, but a U.S. Senator feels competent to nullify that by calling for his dismissal because he hasn’t measured up to her standards of governance. Maliki is totally justified in calling on Clinton and other American politicians to “come to their senses.”

The Looney Left has tried to incite assassination of both our President and Vice-President and repeatedly expressed regret over their failure. They’ve called for impeachment, with no satisfaction, as the Democratic Congress has shown little interest. They’ve called on Congress to obstruct the war effort by defunding it, and have gone unheeded. Now they’re calling on the Joint Chiefs to remove the President from his position as Commander-in-Chief. They are so desperate to depose this President that they’re willing to commit sedition and treason to get it done. Incredible.

Martin Lewis is a British subject of the Queen, by the way. He’s also described as a humorist, although the “humor” on display in the post is a little, um, shrill. And I can’t help wondering how humorous the Secret Service detail charged with the President’s security would take an attempt by U.S. Marines under the command of Gen. Pace to place the President under military arrest as the General relieves the President of his command. What an asinine screed.

Everyone in government needs to concentrate on doing their job instead of tending everybody else’s business. The media needs to concentrate on reporting the news, instead of telling the American people what to think. Congress needs to take care of the country’s business, instead of obstructing the President in everything he tries to do. A lot of stuff is being neglected because our government in Washington is dysfunctional, incompetent and corrupt. It’s hurting the country. A lot.
