I was just reading about this today in the Chicago papers. Amazingly bad judgment on her part. Why are ten of her advisors getting kicked out over a decision she's responsible for? Seems like they're being scapegoated.
Well whatever happens, I hope it's resolved in the country's best interests.
Ronald Reagan's wife was consulting an astrologer at one point and setting her husband's schedule by astrology advice. But people just kind of rolled their eyes when it was revealed, and pretty much gave them a pass on it. Didn't understand why; I thought it was a disgrace...but anyway...
It sounds like this is getting serious. You guys think she'll lose her office over it?
What is the basis for the Jinseong comparison? Just generally calling her an incompetent leader?
So you don't think it can get done quickly enough? I guess not. There certainly seems to be enough anger to push things along. What has to be done?
The majority of the National Assembly need to agree on her impeachment, which would be difficult due to her party holding the majority of the seats. Korea's Supreme Court then has to decide whether to approve the impeachment, which itself takes 180 days. She only has a year left in her term, so what's the point?
The anger is mostly coming from the left. Conservative Koreans don't support Park at this point either, but consider her to be lesser of the 2 evils. The left is usually associated with being pro-North Korean just like how many American conservatives consider liberals to be "pro-Muslim apologists." Park is a hard-liner against North Koreans and this was probably the main reason she was elected in the first place. She was considered lesser of the 2 evils in the election 4 years ago and she is still considered as the lesser of the 2 evils by conservatives.
