Sarah Palin on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the impeachment of President Obama, writing in a Breitbart op-ed that the influx of young illegal immigrants over the southern border "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, 'no mas.' "
Mixed/careless metaphors aside, this is nothing but bad news for Republicans especially four months until the 2014 election.
Palin is hardly the first GOP politician to raise the issue of impeachment over the past couple years. Others include Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.), Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), Michael Burgess (R-Tex.), Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), former congressmen Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) and Allen West (R-Fla.), and the South Dakota Republican Party. Not all of these folks called for Obama's impeachment directly, but all of them suggested that it is or should be on the table.
What none of these folks have, though, is a national following. That's where Palin comes in. She's the first Republican of any significant national stature to make this call. And she's the kind of figure who could potentially recruit others to the cause people who will want to be heard. Palin surely doesn't carry the kind of weight she once did in the GOP, but she still has a significant tea party following and is highly popular among the conservative base....

“Ahhhh! Not Palin!”

Sarah is smarter than your president WaPo.
I’m not kidding.
She’d whip his wimpy little *ss on virtually anything they’d compete in...athletic, intellect, and most importantly, moral.
Put that in your crack pot and smoke it.
That's good news for the Tea Party.
The MSM can never just stop can they?
It’s a stupid idea.
Firstly, trying it would go no where. Not with Dingy Harry running the Senate.
Secondly, it is going to screw any chance of actually taking the Senate. The sympathy vote is a powerful thing.
Finally, since the Worm pretty much ignores the law, if by some miracle he was impeached, what would force him to step down?
In some weird way he is probably right. It is bad news for the RINOs in the GOP.
Sarah Palin just joined the impeach Obama crowd. Thats bad news for the GOP.
And that’s GOOD NEWS for Obama and the Democrats.
Its too late to bring impeachement to the table. Obama would only use this as another diversionary tactic anyway.
And with the weak GOP leadership we have now?
No impeachement. No way.
Oh, yes ... it's just SO vitally important that conservatives take political advice from communist hacks ...
God should just impeach him from humanity and be done with it.
I think Sarah’s comments should be taken more along the line of “if anybody OUGHT to be impeached, it’s this guy,” rather than a strategic decision that impeachment should be started. There’s a difference. And, if more of the Republican leaders said it, it might take hold in the minds of the unwashed LIV masses.
“if by some miracle he was impeached, what would force him to step down?”
I am dreaming but if it got to that, he would go and not safely.
In Reading the comments to the story, you can tell WaPo has completed its’ brainwashing mission of the zombies....
Marry me, Sarah!
Gutless weasels,,, committee after committee, and what? What do we get?
300K plus since the first of the year illegally entering this country..
Man, CONGRE$$es like this are a tyrannical regime’s best friend.
Huh. I thought Sarah Palin wasn’t relevant anymore. Why do they care what she says?
Thanks for the sage advice of “do nothing because trying something might not work.”
And, welcome to FR?
I expect the GOP leadership to come out immediately, condemn Palin, and then (echoing McCain in 2008) officially state “there is no reason to fear an Obama presidency.”
That would be today’s GOP for you. The GOP of Boehner/McConnell/McCain. Ignore Obama’s utter obliteration of the rule of law, and attack Palin, attack the tea-party, and attack the citizens/militias actually willing to stand up for America’s Constitution and its soveriegnty.
