Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate, blasted President Barack Obama on Saturday and demanded his removal from office.

The tea party speaking-circuit darling said at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado that talk of impeachment 'has got him nervous.'

Like the Declaration of War, the Impeachment power will never be used again.

Minor correciton: If he’s not impeachable, no MSM-supported (i.e., Democrat) President is.

And the MSM made sure they burned her at the stake before her simple
truth messages were understood by the uninformed.

Sarah doesn’t understand. Impeachment has nothing to do with crimes and justice. Crimes are a necessary part of the process, of course, but justice does not play at all. In our justice system, we assemble an impartial jury to listen to evidence and provide a fair and honest verdict. Through this system, justice is served.

Impeachment, on the other hand, is a purely political instrument. There is a trial unlike anything in our justice system. The jurors are the members of the Senate, a thoroughly partisan political body and they will not seed justice, they will meet out politics. A Senate that includes at least one third Democrat members will never convict a Democrat President unless the American people, including Democrat constituents, are demanding that they do so.

No such condition currently exists and until circumstances change, impeachment would not give conservatives what they want and would almost certainly hurt our cause.

Elections and impeachment fit into the same category, they are political tools and the only one available to us at the moment is the election tool.

My impression is that Palin is working to change the circumstances.

Coming from her, as opposed to coming from an elected federal politician, does no harm. She is voicing a principle. I think you are correct about the realpolitik of it. Republicans are doomed to suffer a corrupt presidency because at least a third of the politicians (and probably closer to 90%) will defend wrongdoing, provided they find a personal benefit to doing so.

Thank you Sarah - it has been A LONG TIME since I heard something definitive from you. Prior to this, the best I ever heard were the standard weasel words, dating back to McCain’s pathetic campaign: “Our Immigration System is broken and we have to fix it”.

A LOT OF US wanted to hear specifics - like “SEND THEM BACK”. I’m FINALLY hearing that now...so maybe we can do business.

Impeachment is a process that requires strong public support. Support takes time to develop.

If there is 55% or more of Americans strongly favoring impeachment, Obama will be impeached and removed from office.

Obama knows this and he is worried.

Krauthammer’s link to Nixon’s alledged misuse of the IRS.

Nixon’s Attorney General, Ed Miese, cited his office was sworn to support the constitution and not pledged to follow any executive order which would conflict with his constitutional duties. Miese refused to allow this misuse.

Not only should Obama face impeachment on several charges and that begins with the Zimmerman episode and grows from there but also Holder as well.

Indeed. With the current make up of the "Worlds Greatest Dysfunctional Body" Obama is impossible to remove - but he's removed himself already (kind of)

Still, the House has an obligation to do their duty - which I guess is nothing. What a dangerous precedent

If impeachment got too imminent then Obama would just unleash Wag the Dog — which Putin has now given him.

In addition to immigration – ‘amnesty’ in conservative parlance – she rattled off a list of scandals including the mistreatment of veterans by VA health centers; a cover-up about the 2012 terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya; Justice Department spying on journalists, the IRS’s alleged pattern of targeting conservative nonprofits for undue scrutiny; and the president’s unilateral changes to his medical insurance overhaul law.

Obama, she said, is ‘spinning from one scandal to another scandal. He has vertigo.’

Palin showed her comfort with hyperbole, comparing his administration to an organized crime syndicate whose capo is insulated from responsibility by staying at arm’s length from murder and mayhem.

Obama, she said, can’t ‘feign ignorance of all of this, any more than a mob boss can claim innocence because, well, “he didn’t personally do the hit.” The buck stops with the guy at the top.’

Soon, the media landscape will be groomed and ready for Sheriff Joe’s knockout blow

If, and it is a big if, something blows. In the IRS scandal that is direct evidence of a WH link, I could see circumstances where O was forced to resign. This also assumes the Dems lose big in Nov. Sarah is getting ahead of a changed circumstance. SMART!

IMHO rubbish - this is PURE RAT Kabuki theater pre 2014 midterms.

You are partially correct. The House of Representatives could easily impeach him, ala Clinton, but the Senate would actually convict. The Senate did not convict Clinton because the Democrat Senators saw no evidence worthy of conviction. They did not go down into the Senate basement and actually look at the evidence. As long as they never looked, they could honestly say they saw nothing worthy of conviction.

Should we impeach or let it ride since the current Senate would never vote for conviction. It is easy to see and agree with both sides, but maybe the airing of the crimes he committed would solidify the conservative base. I do not know, I am not prescient.

Holder singing to Obama at the Girdiron Dinner.

Unimpeachable
That’s what you are,
Unimpeachable
Tho’ near or far.

Like a song of love that clings to me,
How the thought of you does things to me.
Never before
Has someone been more...

Unimpeachable
In every way,
And forever more.
That’s how you’ll stay.

That’s why, darling, it’s incredible.
That someone so Unimpeachable.
Thinks that I am.
Unimpeachable, too.

[interlude]

[Obama joins Holder in a duet].

Unimpeachable
In every way,
And forever more.
That’s how you’ll stay.

That’s why, darling, it’s incredible.
That someone so Unimpeachable.
Thinks that I am.
Unimpeachable, too.

If there is 55% or more of Americans strongly favoring impeachment,

55% of the American people, if clustered in states with two Republican Senators, would be insufficient to get the deed done. 34 Senators can block any conviction vote. If they are from same Democrat states that do not support impeachment, the attempt is doomed.

Nailed it!

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” John Adams, Founding Father, signatory to the Declaration of Indpendence, POTUS #02
