Texas Democrat Candidate: "Impeach Obama"

Kesha Rogers, 33-year-old Democrat who won the Democratic Party nomination to run against Republican Pete Olsen in Texas's 22nd Congressional District did so by campaigning on a ticket of "Impeaching Obama."

"Rogers shouted it from a sound truck that cruised the four-county 22nd Congressional District. She posted an 18-foot banner emblazoned with the message “Save NASA. Impeach Obama” on street corners. Her Web site is filled with videos and periodic policy statements documenting her stand."

Losing candidate Doug Blatt says of voters, "I can't believe that most people who voted for her knew that she wants to impeach Obama. I do believe that most of them didn't do any research about the candidates before voting."

What else can be said but, Go Kesha!

Maybe they actually DID research her and that was EXACTLY why they voted for her. Shows what a numb-nuts Blatt is that he "can't believe" people would want to elect someone that wants to impeach Obama and save NASA (I would presume for the purpose it was intended, rather than this asinine push toward focusing on AGW). Especially someone from their own party.

Let's hope she sticks to it if she comes out on top - unlike every campaign promise made by BHO that has been broken since he took office.

Well, being a LaRouchie, she's no doubt far left, but there is little doubt that her position was well known. What with an 18 foot banner and sound truck an all.

Tx 22 is a strong Republican district, Tom Delay's old district, so we'll have to watch and see how she does against Pete Olsen.
