Never, ever, the conservative radio talk show host said on his radio program Thursday.

Thank you, Captain Obvious.
Because Limbaugh is mostly right. It is highly unlikely Obama would ever be impeached, it is virtually impossible that he would ever be convicted by the Senate.
Clamoring for Obama's impeachment is a waste of air. It's not going to happen. Limbaugh is simply speaking the truth.
On this one they have race and throwing treasury money around to avoid being Impeached IMO.
I'm afraid so.
I would agree. Racism would be the charge. But I don’t see history being kind to the Obama years. I see repeal of Obamacare as a real possibility. Nevermind all the other f***ups these clowns have committed. Maybe even an indictment or two.
Because he is correct and not part of the problem.
There is no way we’d ever get this past the Senate, and Joe Biden would end up being President -— and probably elected as an incumbent.
In short, attempting to remove him from office, however emotionally fulfilling, would not occur and, if by some fluke it did, would be bad for conservatives.
They are not f***ups to the liberal left. Everything has happened exactly how they wanted it to.
NEVER SAY NEVER! Wait until after November—lots of thing are going to change. Putin has pulled Obama’s pants down, people are getting sick of Michele, the hammer of Obamacare has yet to hit again—and inflation, stock market crash, etc.. is coming. See how things are on June 15th!
I thought the same thing during the Clinton Impeachment....So it succeeded, then we got stuck with Algore....Frankly, we were better off with Clinton.
I would of thought of all people Rush would have learned...Never Say Never!
Another favorite cliche...Were there is will there is a way!
Although these are cliche’s I’ve found them to be true over and over again in my life time experience.
Pointing out political reality is not being part of the problem.
Lets be real... even if republicans won every single senate seat this election that only puts them at 66 votes... no democrat is going to break ranks unless its politically advantageous.
So, here we go, the house impeaches, the senate refuses to convict, and the left plays to blacks for the next 100 years that the republicans hate black people they tried to impeach the first black president.... Doesn’t matter the facts of whether he deserved it or not.
Only, and I do mean ONLY if the liability of Obama is to the point where the democratic party itself would be destroyed if they did not do it, will impeachment happen.
I am sure the majority of us were well aware the Obungler would never be impeached. I have been amused by the imaginations of people who listed all the different, horrible things he could do on the White Hut lawn, and the lemmings in the media would give him a pass on all of it.
He may not ever be impeached, but it is my life’s mission to berate, ridicule, diminish, impugn and disparage anything and everything this man stands for. He is the embodiment of evil and human weakness wrapped up in an affirmative action package that fools many. Not me.
Limbaugh isn’t the problem, millions of Americans are.
I live in an area where 99% of the people think Obama is wonderful. From the schools to the churches ( From the Mormons, Evangelicals, and the Catholic ones too!), you’d be hard press to find anyone who doesn’t love Obama.
It really blows my mind how people can be so blind, especially the people of faith. Once you’ve lost the people, the politicians can get away with anything.
It all depends on who writes the history.
Facts have a funny way of changing...
What is impossible about making the November election a referendum on the matter of the high crimes and misdemeanors of Barak Hussein Obama?
I realize it would require massive testosterone injections; buy why can't Rush tout that strategy?
Sometimes you have to be logical and rational. You have to be real with what your situation is...and not live in fantasy land.
If Obama starts hurting the Democrat Party enough, they’ll tell him that he’s sick and needs to resign.
He’s 100% correct on this, there is no way Obama is going to be impeached.
Are you saying Democrats will still control the Senate in 2015?
I’m going to need to see at least 25 senate democrats calling for it before I’ll begin to believe its possible.
Yes. And there's all the prognostications about a huge win in November. Will that hurt? I just can't understand why Rush would say what he said in light of that.
It will take more than GOP control of the senate to get a conviction. As it is, the majority of republicans in the senate would likely vote against impeachment.
On the contrary, since he doesn’t tiptoe around
it isn’t going to happen, he’s part of the solution in exposing the shield that the left is using to bypass all restrictions on govt power.
What needs to be said to your sheeperal neighbor is
“do you really want a president to be able to do ANYTHING he wants to do without consequence just because he’s ‘black’?”
OK, let's be even MORE real.
There are not 20 Republican Senators who would vote to convict Obama, ever, regardless of circumstance. There may not even be ten.
Because he’s right. As others have said, Obama could be caught red-handed with ... and nothing would be done about it.
What part of reality do you live in if you really doubt him?
Impeachment happens in Congress, remember? The nutless wonders who can’t even get minor things done...
Limbaugh has been part of the problem for a VERY long time.
Not very smart, self aggrandizing, doing nothing more than throwing feces at the wall and seeing if it sticks ... that’s his shtick.
Does he help promote conservatism? No. He’s nothing more than a quasi-conservative rock concert a/k/a the Justin Bieber of conservatism.
I long for the days of a Bill Buckley or anyone of intellect who can promote our values. I’m done with a stable of carnival barkers. We are better than this and we DESERVE better than this.
It’s not going to happen even thought he’s turning the country into a police state. If you won’t even impeach a president who abuses power like he is, there is no hope for this govt. The whole govt is a cancer.
Rush is right. We need to realize our Congress even if the Pubbies get the Senate will never have the stones to impeach. The Media will crucify them. Soooo its 3 more years of Dr. Destructo doing what he does best which is destroy our country.
By 2016 we will really be in the shite as Gordon Ramsey likes to say.
If the republicans win the senate, then he would be essentially powerless.
The House GOP "leadership" is merely a wet finger in the mainstream media wind.
Get real, Limbaugh is not part of the problem and he never has been. He speaks the truth.
He is entitled to his opinion, just as we are. Lying or saying the opposite of something you think not going to happen, to the public, is for the Rats.
It has to be a bottom up effort,
and it has to start with a frank conversation with Obama supporters -
“do you REALLY want the president to be totally unaccountable because of his skin color?”
He’s just being correct. Anyone who can’t see that is wasting their time.
The Senate majority is not going to actually impeach him, not just due to Democrats but because of spineless RINOs. He only has 2+ years to go, which is further reason he won’t be impeached.
Obama could rape his two daughters on the White House lawn at high noon in front of 50 reporters and half the media would pretend it never happened while the other half would claim the girls were “asking for it”.
With no media support and no Senatorial chance, impeachment is a pipe dream. Rush is correct. It will never happen.
Not enough guts in either House.
At the federal level, the impeachment process is a two-step procedure. The House of Representatives must first pass, by a simple majority of those present and voting, articles of impeachment, which constitute the formal allegation or allegations. Upon passage, the defendant has been “impeached”. Next, the Senate tries the accused. In the case of the impeachment of a president, the Chief Justice of the United States presides over the proceedings. For the impeachment of any other official, the Constitution is silent on who shall preside, suggesting that this role falls to the Senate’s usual presiding officer. This may include the impeachment of the vice president, although legal theories suggest that allowing a defendant to be the judge in his own case would be a blatant conflict of interest. If the Vice President did not preside over an impeachment (of anyone besides the President), the duties would fall to the President pro tempore of the Senate.
To convict the accused, a two-thirds majority of the senators present is required. Conviction removes the defendant from office. Following conviction, the Senate may vote to further punish the individual by barring him from holding future federal office, elected or appointed. Conviction by the Senate does not bar criminal prosecution. Even after an accused has left office, it is possible to disqualify the person from future office or from certain emoluments of his prior office (such as a pension). If there is no charge for which a two-thirds majority of the senators present vote “guilty”, the defendant is acquitted and no punishment is imposed.
Rush isn’t the problem. John Boehner is the problem. Does anyone seriously think he will allow impeachment proceedings to begin? There are two chances of that: slim and fat.
see my tagline!
Correct for many reasons. If 100% of Congress in both houses were Republican, he still would not be impeached far less removed from office.
The leadership of the RINO party does not have the inclination nor the balls to even contemplate impeachment.
Obama is the Affirmative Action Magic Negro [per the LA Times]. To even attempt such would invite racial discord that this Boy King’s election was supposed to have alleviated (i.e., the Post Racial President).
[See dictionary: “Complete Crock of Horessh!t]
You don’t understand politics.... Impeachment is a POLITICAL action.
Do you not think that from the minute it gets seriously spoken about it won’t be spun as a racist attack?
Politics is not engineering... FACTS DON’T MATTER in politics, if you can swindle the electorate that’s all that matters.
There has only been 2 impeachments in the history of this country. Neither resulted in a conviction.
Now, the reality is we don’t need 1 democrat to file articles of impeachment, its a simple majority in the house... If the republicans were serious about impeaching to make a political statement and standing for what is right, they could draw up articles of impeachment TODAY... only need a simple majority to pass them.
Clinton who was caught on tape lying under oath could only get a 50-50 vote in the Senate, so no way a Senate conviction is likely to happen... So if the point to do this is to call witnesses and make a statement the Republicans in he house could do that at any time and as you can see they aren’t.
Now, if you get to 67 republicans in the Senate, or you see a big enough faction of democratic senators realize that the long term health of their party is at stake then you might see something change, but the way things are on the ground right now, not going to happen.
“He may not ever be impeached, but it is my lifes mission to berate, ridicule, diminish, impugn and disparage anything and everything this man stands for. He is the embodiment of evil and human weakness wrapped up in an affirmative action package that fools many. Not me.”
Quote of the day. Best post award IMO
The Republicans alone will not impeach Obama unless public sentiment waxes to unprecedented levels.
THE DEMOCRATS, on the other hand, will gin up anti-Obama sentiment if Obamacare becomes an albatross in 2014 (if Democrats lose seats in very safe territory). They will use the media to report the scandals that Obama presided over, raise their hands in ignorance and say “we didn’t know this guy was THIS bad,” and impeach him to get back 2016.
Count on it.
Washington is a tough state to find Republicans.
Oregon is almost as bad.
I would have to move or be a hermit.
