Democrats use impeachment talk to gin up donations
Politico ^ | July 14, 2014 | Brian Tau

Republican threats to impeach President Barack Obama are guaranteed to generate two things: Democratic outrage and Democratic cash.

Sarah Palin this week joined a long line of Republican firebrands in raising the specter of impeachment against the president, writing in a Breitbart.com op-ed: “The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.”

And like clockwork, the Democratic outrage machine sprang to life — using her comments to mobilize grass-roots supporters and raise small dollar campaign donations from Obama die-hards.

The result was a flood of grass-roots donations, according to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

You Freepers better not comment on this article ... cause if you do, you'll probably help open up a flood of contributions ... from unions, civil servants, fraudsters, crony capitalists, libtard malcontents, and other enemies of this republic ...

Oh no! If we talk about enforcing the law and defending the constitution against a tyrannical lawless usurper, the democrats will raise money!!!

Shut up people. The only way to save the republic is to COWER IN FEAR!!

Get under your table. Close your eyes. Curl into a ball. SHUT THE HELL UP!

Secretly, I’d wager there are a slew of D’s who would be fine with it. There are rabid 0’bots and those who are older non-0-bumper sticker types who simply worked in steel mills and other who just vote D...those aren’t too happy with 0.

People just paid $32,000 for some BBQ to touch his robes. Talking about impeachment won’t increase donation. And by the way, apparently he didn’t get his fill of BBQ. The next day he’s buying more at Franlin’s in Austin. Good think they only sell beef.

Too bad we don’t have a ‘Government Of the People Party’ that we could do the same.

I refuse to send them a dime! Candidates only.

We have to fight both parties.

he can be impeached on identity theft alone.
the social security number he uses was issued to someone else

it’s a black & white, cut & dry case of breaking the law. not failing to enforce... actually breaking it. yet, congress won’t do anything.

why do we even pay these people?
why are we continuing to pay for them??

i wonder if a tax revolt would wake them up (do your job or you don’t get paid)

I get fund raising emails from both sides daily. Apparently there is a full blown industry in just fund raising.

If ever a U.S. President deserved impeachment, this one does.

Democrats would PAY us to impeach Obama...if they could.

There's no hurry needed - we can deal with this AFTER mid-terms. The goal is to correct the horrible path the country's on... it's NOT to give into hothead urges.

” - - - There’s no hurry needed - we can deal with this AFTER mid-terms. - - - “

That has been the RINO Party line with Dole, McCain and Romney?

How has that worked out for you RINOs?
