Skip to comments.CONGRESSMAN: HOUSE WOULD VOTE TO IMPEACH
Posted on 06/18/2014 7:31:12 PM PDT by kingattax
Another member of the U.S. House has joined the conversation about the possibility of impeaching President Obama for illegal activities, confirming his colleagues probably would vote for the move.
The comments come from Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., in an interview with radio host Gary Sutton.
We have a president who has taken this to a new level. And its put us in a real position where hes just absolutely ignoring the Constitution, ignoring the laws, ignoring the checks and balances, he said.
The problem is, what do you do? For those who say impeach him for breaking the laws or not enforcing the laws, you know. Could that pass, in the House? It probably, it probably could. Are the majority of American people in favor of impeaching President Obama? Im not sure, he said.
He cited the recent primary election loss for House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va.
I think what happened in Virginia is what youre going to start seeing around the country.
Theyre going to look at their specific member of Congress and their own U.S. senator. If they dont feel youre standing up for them, theyre going to throw you out and theyre going to send somebody else there.

It is coming, but hang on.
Yes. Impeach him. But that does not remove him from office.
Resign is fine, sooner the better.
Right. Integrity and the rule of law be damned.
The American people want you asshats that we sent to DC to take care of business? It seems that none of you are doing that, from the fearless golfer on down to the lowliest congressman. Get real man...... Do the damn job that you were sent there to do..
They won’t impeach.
Congress protects Obama to protect THEMSELVES.
The main obstacle to Impeaching Obama is the cowardliness of the Republican House Members to vote Boehner out as Speaker.
With Boehner just a regular House Member, Obama could be Impeached before Labor Day.
With Boehner as Speaker, Obama will continue to “Fundamentally transform the United States of America,” and enjoy every minute of it.
Many have not been paying attention and some are in denial. If the substantial number of charges are laid out, clearly supported and made public, there is no question IMO that a majority in America will support impeachment and removal.
if articles of impeachment are filed and pass, and there is a trial in the senate, just make sure that chester trent lott isn’t involved in setting the rules for the trial.
Yes, let us begin to seriously talk about it. There is so much to be deliberated, and from so very many perspectives. Let’s do talk (loudly) on the topic. But first order of business, offload certain RINOs who would prevent this “Impeachment Party” from ever getting started. We must replace Boehner and Kevin McCarthy if he is chosen to replace Cantor. I am almost preferring to absorb a loss with McConnell this fall, just to sweep him off the decks once and for all.
If they only had a backbone.
Musn't we use strategy to remove the abomination?
Only the Senate can remove him from office...and for that we will need a 2/3 vote in said Senate.
regarding a loss for ‘mighty mitch’, if the RATS lose the senate, more and more people are in agreement with you.
crybaby and mitch - OUT
Even if Repubs took the Senate, there are so many RINOs out there now I doubt they would get anything accomplished and we’ll have this jackass for another 2 years until the Hillary/Warren administration takes over in 2017 which will be like nuking the Titanic while it’s sinking.
He is a skunk (apologies to skunks). He will have to be dragged from the WH.
But as we all remember from the Nixon trial...these things develop a momentum of their own.
Obama is far worse than Nixon, but is protected by the issue of Racism.
This is virgin territory. Let's see what happens.
Woulda Coulda Shoulda
Do it or STFU.
