Skip to comments.BREAKING: Desperate Dems Fear “All-But-Certain” Impeachment if GOP Takes Senate
Posted on 06/27/2014 6:29:10 AM PDT by PoloSec
Years ago, impeaching President Obama wouldve seemed like an impossibility, but with scandals and corruption leaking out of every nook and cranny of the White House, the likelihood of accomplishing such a Herculean feat has dramatically increased.
Hot off the heels of a disastrous negotiation with terrorists, an Iraqi crisis, and several congressional investigations into the VA scandal, IRS targeting, and Benghazi cover up, the movement calling for Obamas impeachment has gone mainstream.
House Republicans claim the votes are there to move forward on impeachment, and to further prove the seriousness of all the fervor, Speaker Boehner is set to file a lawsuit against the president.
All of this has liberal Democrats very, very nervous.
A recent email blast sent out by the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee says that if Republicans win the Senate, impeachment is all-but-certain.
Heres the DLCC email:
Washington Post: President Obama will be impeached Add Your Name: Stop the Tea Party impeachment
Just days after Republicans in Congress claimed they probably have the votes to impeach President Obama in the House, theWashington Post reports that impeachment is all-but-certain if Republicans win this falls elections.
The ONLY reason Republicans are pursuing impeachment is because they dont like that President Obama defeated them in the last election. We CANNOT let this stand.
We need you to speak out now to stop the Tea Partys impeachment agenda please add your name today!
A growing list of top Republicans are lining up to support impeachment, and some right-wing legislators are already taking steps to make it a reality.
Tea Partiers in Congress are giving speeches calling impeachment a dream come true, and the official Republican Party Convention in South Dakota actually PASSED a resolution demanding that the President be thrown out of office!
This has already gone way too far: Speak out now to STOP the Tea Party impeachment!

This is good news. Liberals should absolutely be terrified of the possibility that Obama could be given a pink slip. If he falls, so does their agenda. The removal of the president spells the end of their attempts to fundamentally transform America, and buys some time for America to start down the path to recovery.
Americans must continue to bombard their representatives and demand they stay the course and make sure the president is brought to justice.
Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you agree that the Democrats have every reason to fear the impeachment of Barack Obama.
McCockle and Boner have the same exact agenda as Ubama.
They won't do anything.
That’s hilarious. Nice way to admit that impeachable offenses have been committed. That’s why they want the GOP-e in there if they can’t be in themselves.
As a MINIMUM, that is what I would demand, but I would not expect it. McConnell, Graham, McCain et al are traitors.
That’s why the Dems got out the vote for the GOP-e guy in MS.
Tragically, I have to agree with you. Plus, they are deathly afraid of being called “racists.”
Riiight! The fact that Obama violates the Constitution on a daily basis and, with the help of lackey Eric Holder, obstructs justice beyond recognition, has nothing to do with it.
No chance in hell these Pubbies have the spine to impeach The Won, even if they have the 2/3rd’s of the majority in the Senate. This is just another strategy to rile up the Zombie LIV base to get them out to vote in November.
Another desperate, transparent attempt to get the Dem base to turnout for the midterms.
“All but certain”? I’d like to think so, but even if the R’s take seven or eight seats to make it 52-48 or something like that, they still would need more than a dozen Dem senators for the 67 needed for impeachment.
This is just “sky is falling” fundraising rhetoric.
Boehner... he is sooo compromised.
This is just fundraiser and GOTV noise. They know that McConnell would deep six this as fast as Reid.
A. The GOP is not going to take over the Senate.
B. Removal from office requires a 2/3 Senate majority. That will never happen.
And now that I re-read the article carefully, I remember that “impeachment” is not the same as removing him from office. They’re not saying anything at all about that.
And , of course, they’ll blame it on “racism” and send out 10 million fundraising letters.
Impeach that bastard...overturn every bill he signed or forced through...hold him criminally responsible for treason...and arrest his adminstrarion pukes who followed him....just like Nurenburg....stupidity or orders.are not a defense....I wonder if the RINO,s have it in them....
Establishment Republicans impeach The First Black President?
Impeachment is the House, which you could think of as being like a grand jury, and the actual trial occurrs in the Senate where a conviction might be obtained, as I recall.
Why would anyone want to make Biden an incumbent, which would happen with the removal of Obama?
You need a majority in the House to impeach.
You need a super majority in the Senate to convict.
There would be riots in every major city if the Clown is impeached.
He should be impeached, and it should be bipartisan.
But he won’t be, because Demon Rats have sold their souls to perversion. Some of the GOP too.
There is no way in Hell the GOP is going to impeach Obama. Any “fear” is just for the Dem fundraising letters.
In the meantime, his pending impeachment would be the ONLY news.
Better strategy is to use a Repub controlled congress to AGGRESSIVELY promote an ACTIVE and POSITIVE agenda of Free Markets, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, School Choice & American Exceptional ism.
Make the issues, the issues.
the Uniparty might have to throw a few races to make sure the GOPwing loses so the GOPwing will have cover to explain why they still can't impeach Obams.
HA! The author is an idiot. Boehner's feckless lawsuit simply proves he is not serious about reining in the tyrant at all. It communicates that we are not serious at all about impeachment.
I don’t think they actually “fear” impeachment,
they’re just using this as fear-MONGERING to ensure black turnout in the midterms.
-— AGGRESSIVELY promote an ACTIVE and POSITIVE -—
That’s always the answer. But we’ll need a giant Tea Party landslide.
In related news, chicken “Henny Penny” is running for federal office.
Please ignore her.
DNC is just trying to whip up the black vote. Their ignorant base can’t be relied on to vote twice per cycle, if they aren’t whipping them with racism or cuts to welfare.
The msg is, “If you don’t come out and vote, your black president is going to get impeached by those racist Republicans.”
They’ll never remove him.
But, the best tactic a patriot could do is use every opportunity of floor time to list out the impeachable offenses,
and then state that due to his skin color, impeachment will not be pursued.
Back the truck up there, BCW. You can't jump from Step A to Step C. Step A is impeach in the House. Step B is convict in the Senate. For all the reasons up-thread, Step B is a non-starter. Unless we win 70 Senate seats AND O'Bastard hands The Football over to ISIS.
Obama could cut out the heart of a 2 year old and offer it up to Ba'al during the State of the Union broadcast, and the Senate would not convict him. They know that the cities would burn if Obama was removed from office.
“This is good news. Liberals should absolutely be terrified of the possibility that Obama could be given a pink slip. If he falls, so does their agenda. The removal of the president spells the end of their attempts to fundamentally transform America, and buys some time for America to start down the path to recovery.”
The commies and his goons should all go to Gitmo and spend the rest of their crooked life behind bars..if he finishes his term there will not be anything left of America..
How is the GOP going to win the Senate with so many FReepers dedicated to electing Democrats?
Majority of House for impeachment. 2/3 of Senate for conviction and removal from office.
You don’t need the Senate to impeach. I wish they would just leave this crap alone.
Whatever. The Dems will impeach him to increase their chances for 2016 - gotta blame all these failures on someone.
As the majority of comments so far show, a cohort of self identified Conservatives are whipped. Sad to behold, but certainly encouraging to our Overlords.
Impeach then hang!
The Senate removes (with 2/3 majority vote).
The House could easily impeach now with the rep majority they have.
The Senate has a dem majority so they won't ever vote to remove.
Clinton was impeached by the House but the Senate did not remove.
Getting impeached does not take away any presidential powers, just puts a blot on the historical record.
If the Senate votes to remove, then we have something.
Two presidents have been impeached before, none were ever removed by the Senate.
Maybe that will change. . . .one can dream. . .
Before you can do that the Senate needs to vote to remove.
He can be impeached by the House but that doesn’t affect anything the Big Zero has done.
Once voted out/removed by the Senate, THEN you can do all that you talk about. . if you have enough votes. . .
Agree that this is mainly rhetoric to inflame the low information voter - after all why would anyone ever find fault with this President unless it wasn’t simply because they didn’t like him or losing an election to him. Couldn’t possibly have anything to do with absolute dereliction of duty and taking actions that have repeatedly been found unconstitutional by a Supreme Court including votes against him by his own appointees.
The R’s may not have enough votes in the Senate to convict, but the House could still impeach. And while the current lawsuit approach should proceed to whatever conclusion is ultimately reached, the House should go forward with articles of impeachment based on many of the tyrannical actions this President has taken. While it appears the analogous defense to Clinton’s crimes as “just lying about sex” will be “they just hate him because he won the election” and “they’re racists” - a full trial on the merits laying out all his crimes and going piece by piece - a few days of trial on each so the full extent of his acts can be aired - will show the constitutional crisis we are truly facing. Can a dozen or more D’s be won over? Huge hurdle - but at some point they are going to find him not worth defending, simply a lame-duck president with no ability to pass any legislation. They’ll take Biden with the wacky hope they can turn him into a contender for 2016.
I haven’t really weighed in on this one as it’s just too Quixotic. But PLEASE tell me how on EARTH the GOP taking the Senate changes the math? On what planet in what reality do we get 67 Senators? (Putting aside the merits of impeachment)
Time is routinely wasted on this kind of thing. ODimwit may be fiddling while America burns but there are sure a lot of “conservatives” in the orchestra with him.
“Will be impeached by racists” is the implication.
Good post. I will add that Impeachment would serve as a crash course on Constitution 101 for a great number of our fellow Americans.
Than alone makes it worth doing.
Desperate Dems are trying yet another meme to see if this one will take hold. The “war on women” failed. The minimum wage failed. This will fail too.
