Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican, told constituents at a townhall over the weekend that the House of Representatives would probably have enough votes to impeach President Obama.
Farenthold was in Luling, Texas on Saturday, and after stepping past a question about the presidents birth certificate, suggested that the House would have the votes to impeach the president, but the Democratic Senate would kill the effort.
A question I get a lot If everybodys so unhappy with what the presidents doing, why dont you impeach him? Farenthold said.
Ill give you a real frank answer about that. If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it, but it would go to the Senate and he wouldnt be convicted.

Ha! They could stop most of his agenda, but they won’t. Why should we believe they’d actually impeach the turd?
Interesting family, the Farentholds, though.
Oh, oh, I know! I know! Pick me!
So impeach the jackass anyway and let the blame fall on the Senate for not convicting him!
Exactly. This is like saying we won’t report a crime, even though we see there is one, because the police won’t arrest the suspect. The Republicans are just avoiding responsibility, like they always do.
So what are the charges?
Choose one, or two. Or three........
51 REASONS TO IMPEACH OBAMA
No, I need real charges. This ain’t fantasy football.

Grand Theft Treasury
Somebody should work up a clickable wireframe CGI of Pelosi’s face and launch a “Nancy’s New Facelift” app.
Not being a member of Congress, I don’t know what the real charges of impeachment against Obama are. You may want to ask Congressman Farenthold.......
Never stated any better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have not seen a dim that cared about America since the 70’s.
If any of these illegal acts by Federal Agencies can be linked back to obama... the dims will force him to resign... but it would have to be absolute proof. Otherwise, the smart money is on boxing him up (lame duck) and allowing him no further treason.
Then do it. The people will back you up with the Senate.
He has damned sure done that!
Not productive use of time and resources.
I would love to see Biden as President. At least the gaffes would give us a good laugh. There is nothing humorous about Obama’s reign of terror.
You don’t need an impeachment that would probably be just as damaging to the GOP to box him up. We should look at the Zimmerman trial and how hoping for a prosecution based on a public opinion driven jury turned out.
However, as you say, an airtight case would probably be enough for at least a few democrats to seek his resignation.
At one point in my life, I never thought Clinton could survive the Lewinsky scandal. The idea that the dems and the media would circle the wagons for him was unthinkable. But they did.....
It will be ten times worse if Bambi is impeached, the democrat/media complex will never let him go down.
