Posted on 11/05/2010 3:28:49 AM PDT by kingattax
With the House now firmly in Republican hands, some on the left have and are voicing concerns that the GOP will attempt to impeach President Barack Obama.
While liberals, such as MSNBCs Ed Schultz, the New Republics Jonathan Chait, and various bloggers wring their hands over the sinister hypothetical, the Republican leadership is denying that they have even considered the possibility.
Liberal commentators are simply making things up, Republican leader John Boehners spokesman Michael Steel told The Daily Caller. We have no plans to [impeach] the President. Our plan is to listen to the American people, who want us to stop the tax hikes, cut spending, repeal and replace ObamaCare, and help create jobs.

Nah, don’t take the bait. Notice that it is mostly liberals who float around this issue? I don’t think impeaching him would do any good for us. It’ll just make him a martyr; look at how it worked for Clinton. We need to reverse his policies and take away his ability to make new dangerous policies by de-fund. Another way perhaps to push for stronger BC requirements.
Oh yeah right. Saddle us with a President Biden.
I wouldn’t go as far as to impeach him, unless circumstances require that, but I do expect that we will start investigating and turning over every rock in his administration to see what crawls out.
Nope, it will ensure a GOP win in 2012. Timing is everything.
I remember 1974. We still haven't fully returned the favor.
Liberals are paranoid.
Its good to see insanity breaking out on their side.
That’s who they really are. Obummer btw, is doing a good job of destroying himself. We’re not going to get in the way of it.
impeachment would be a non-starter no matter how well deserved
there should be many appropriate investigations and hearings but without grandstanding
the Mediascum will seize any opportunity to make Obozo into a victim of eviiillll conservatives
if we couldn’t get Bill Clinton out with all the “smoking guns” there were in ‘98 then Barry ain’t going anywhere
constrict his options, investigate his henchmen, keep his admin. under a microscope (many microscopes), and run the House committees as well as possible
we need to sweep him out of office in Nov. 2012 elections, not squander time & energy with any impeachment effort that the MSM and the Demagogues can easily derail
anyway, without a 2/3 vote in the Senate no impeachment results in conviction — so unless someone has a plan for getting all Rs and nearly 20 Demagogues to vote to convict in the Senate, there is no credibility to any discussion of impeachment — it just plays into the hands of the left
They won’t impeach Obama, regardless of how bad things get. Just like Clinton, the Senate won’t go along with it and the media will defend him at all costs. It will result in another Democratic rally in elections.
We just have to acknowledge (unless Don Imus) that Obama is a truly sick and twisted self-centered hack who will destroy our country because of things his sick and twisted father and mentors.
This would be too easy. Just ask President Obama for a copy of his birth certificate and he will resign!
The Senate should block ALL nominees to the federal courts. Let them stay vacant until 2012.
A powerless Obama whining and crying will make him a laughingstock, and will only ensure a GOP victory in 2012.
Is the Secret Service putting up that long tunnel for Obama to walk through because he’s donning Muslim garb and doesn’t dare let pictures get back to America? Dollars to donuts we won’t see any pics of Obama in a turban, but it’s de rigeur for Muslims entering this particular site. Hope somebody has a smart cell phone.
If the NYTimes has something which they will let out, you can be sure it is something really omnious and something even they do not want to be a part of.
If anybody impeaches Obama, it will be Democrats.
After such a historic loss, I’m more concerned the Democrats will impeach the Obama.
The liberals should be so lucky.
He can’t be removed from office anyway without 67 senators on board.
Liberals will impeach him. Conservatives will Imprison Him. Put the POS in jail
...”Ok, no impeachment, have the courts and congress investigate whether he is eligible, declare him ineligible to be President and let the people decide”...
Do a majority of US citizens wonder whether he is Constitutionally eligible to be President? If so, that needs to be put to rest through investigation. He obviously was not vetted when running for office. That needs to take place..The truth will set us free.
Priority 1: Defund his programs, starve his agencies like EPA and HHS.
Priority 2: Put forward a budget and vigorously defend it. That must include _no bailouts_ no matter who is whining and crying.
Priority 3: Vigorously attack the lefty major media using the house floor (CSPAN), Foxnews, Internet and talk radio outlets. The vast majority of the public hates their pathetic bias and propaganda. Put away the kneepads and get out the baseball bats.
Priority 87: Investigate administrative misdeeds and follow the trail where it leads.
What are you going to impeach him for? What charges?
I believe his blatant hijacking of the powers and property of the states and of the people in the pursuit of socialism easily comes under “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
But that is not for me to decide—it is the Constitutional duty of my Representative (it ain't Spratt no more ha ha)to introduce the Articles of Impeachment and my Senators' (the GREAT DeMint and butthead Graham)to remove him from office so as to be justly prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
I would not think impeaching will apply to Obama since he never qualified to be POTUS in the first place.
It would be better if he was told to resign, doing it for health reasons.
The only other course of action would be if Obama was unable to be POTUS because he was a victim of some sort of orchestrated maneuver to portray him as a hero and martyr. get him out of office but don’t tarnish the name any more as well. The nation mourns or parties the passing of the first ever elected Afro American President, and ten thousand schools change their names honoring him.
In all legality though he should be placed in house arrest and tried for crimes such as the use of a fraudulent SS number, just for starters. No doubt about it, Obama IS above the law, he could commit murder and nobody, I repeat NOBODY will step forward to stop him.
We need to create that somebody.
Being a socialist, un-American and serving in office in violation of the requirement the President be a natural-born citizen.
Of course its not politically correct to take the Constitution seriously anymore.
The tunnel is for Zero to visit the GANDHI museum. That’s not a Muslim site.
No turban required.
...”If anybody impeaches Obama, it will be Democrats”...
It is almost always true that healthy and effective corrections come from the inside, from a change within the “enabling” community. Impeachment is never a healthy thing for society and it is most helpful if those closest to the dysfunction take care of the problem.
LOL . . . he does NOT want the people to decide.
Honestly, I think there will be calls for impeachment before the 2012 election. You just know the Clintons have a truck load of dirt on him. They get even! BJ did some damage in the lead up to this election, endorsing dems not endorsed by BO, etc.
I don't want an actual impeachment to occur. I want all the dirt, lies, illegal activities, foreign money, treason, and subversion to be fully exposed. I want to see the Marxist elements in democrat party crushed! The regular 'blue dog' lying scum can pick up the pieces and have a much diminished dem party for the next century.
He lies about every detail that slithers out of his mouth. The form, substance, background, data, interpretation and meaning of every detail. He lies about his birth, his associates, his appointees, his policies, his activities, his thoughts, his family, everything. It's as if he can't speak a word without turning it into a dozen lies. Does anybody truly believe he has been a citizen from birth. Does anybody truly believe that he rejects the venom of Wright, Ayers, Jones, and hundreds of others, including his own spouse? Does anybody truly believe that he loves this country and wants the best for its people?
Biden has always been impeachment insurance.
you do know that even if impeached, to convict and remove from office requires a 2/3 vote of the Senate?
that the Demagogues still have a majority of the Senate?
unless there is some drastic new information that all the Rs and 20 or so Demagogues cannot ignore, all talk of impeachment only plays the game of the left
they’d LOVE for conservatives to squander time, energy, money, and credibility working for an impeachment effort that will not succeed
they’d LOVE to get the public on their side against a “partisan” effort to impeach
if we couldn’t get Bill Clinton out of office after all the he did and his finger-wagging lying right into the (TV) faces of the public, Obozo isn’t going anywhere until we defeat him in the next election (2012)
Worry? You’d think they would beg us to impeach that clown.
I say we skip the Impeachment part and just toss his ass in the pokey straight from the WH.
Exactly. Just make Ø irrelevant. It would be the worst thing that could happen to him.
The dims would love it if we did their dirty work for them. They gave us this turkey, and wish they had Hillary in ‘12...
“I keep hearing rumbings that the NYT has some “watergatesque” level of dirt on the punk president.”
Here’s “Deep Throat II” on the topic:
Shows 0 is out of touch with "his own people." He has nothing in common with real Americans.
He is a Kenyan and an illegal alien just like his aunt, Zeituni Onyango who was ordered deported about five years ago.
I have said for a long time that Obama needs to be impeached, tried for treason and brought to justice.
11/03/10 put the last nail in the coffin on those days.
Politicians no longer have the ability to ignore the peoples’ will by pointing to the propaganda of the MSM.
Only foolish recalcitrant ideologues will give unquestioned credibility to the Leftist press now.
What has been done (BO elected as first AA President) cannot be undone.
When a GOP candidate becomes prominent and successful (Cain, West) in the next few years - it will help remove the scars of BO’s wounds to this Nation.
Be patient and principled.
If the Democrats are smart, they’ll impeach him themselves.
Who wants him impeached? I want him (and his loser wife, mooch-elle) mocked and humiliated for the rest of their pathetic lives.
This is like a play action fake in football. Fake handing off to the running back (impeach Obama) and throw deep for the touchdown (repeal Obamacare). Keep letting them think we’re going to try to impeach him..
He has demonstrated bias (by simply calling those who oppose him--half of America--"the enemy"), a lack of character (no explanation needed), dishonesty/inconsistent statements (no explanation needed), incompetency (no explanation needed)...
That said, before anyone dismisses or takes off the table the topic of a Presidential Impeachment, shouldn't the country at least get to see the evidence before jumping to conclusions.
I don't watch Ed Schultz except when flipping though the channels, but his state of high anxiety makes me wonder if, somewhere in his gut, he knows Obama might be guilty of an impeachable offense.
We have the trifecta (Senate, House and Governor) in so many states now; especially large ones, such as Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and Virginia.
We should leav it up to the states to demand positive proof of eligibility in order to qualify as a candidate on the ballot for President.
They could even demand additional documentation (college transcripts, public documents related to law licenses or DD-214’s).
Impeachment won’t do a damn thing. We need to focus on 2012 and deny him a second term if for no other reason the looming retirement of two more sc justices.
Liberals would LOVE for the GOP to impeach Obambi. Why? Because not only do they have Biden to fall back on, but they also would be able to get rid of Obama and run Hitlery in 2012. All without having to take any heat from the hard-left base. It’s a win-win for them.
They don’t want the right to “throw them into that briar patch”.
Impeachment is for Presidents. Obama is an impostor.
