Rep. Steve King: Obama Possibly a ‘Narcissist’ Who Wants to Get ‘Martyred’ by Impeachment
mediaite.com ^ | July 29, 2014 | Andrew Kirell

While some of the House’s more conservative members might consider impeaching President Barack Obama for an as-yet-unknown executive order on immigration policy, they seem to be wrestling with the idea that such aggressive action against the executive branch could result in a boon for the Democrats.

During a Newsmax TV interview Tuesday evening, host Steve Malzberg asked Rep. Steve King (R-IA) whether it’s possible that the president wants to be impeached because he understands the Senate, as it stands, would never vote to remove him.

King’s response:

I’ve just started to digest the thought process of what it would be like to think that, “Well, I’m the President of the United States and go ahead and impeach me and that’ll make me a martyr.” It’s part of the messiah complex that the president has — I can follow that rationale on him. It would be the most extreme narcissist that you could ever find would be somebody that would say “Go ahead and crucify me in the House of Representatives but I’ve got eternal life in the United States Senate. So it’ll make the martyr that I need to be and history will look upon me benevolently and kindly. And we will put tens of millions of illegal aliens into America who are undocumented Democrats, and we will start the process to document them, and thereby convert America into a leftist state, in perpetuity.”

Now if this all sounds like speculative, hypothetical analysis of the president, well, Malzberg then asked: “But what you know of the president, that’s a possible scenario?”

“Yes, it is,” the congressman replied.

They want to motivate their base (and I do mean base).

Blacks are facing huge unemployment. The economy is a shambles. 1/3 of all Americans are in debt collection. 17 trillion in debt. A joke internationally.

Impeachment won’t go anywhere and they can play the victim card / race card - the only trick they’ve got.

Took major guts for him to call out the real purpose of amnesty as well.

I believe he is on to something:

1. No impeachment - The Left gets away with tons and tons of $hit

2. Impeachment - Obama becomes a martyr

This….makes a sick kind of SENSE.

All it takes for Obama to protect himself from Impeachment is to accuse Boehner of trying to Impeach him. Always a fool for reverse psychology traps, Boehner dutifully held a Presser today and said: “We have no plans to Impeach the president. We have no future plans. It is all a sham.” BINGO! Obama’s part-time Day Job is safe, because Boehner is really, Really, REALLY STUPID!

Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner has convinced most voters in the Public and US House of Representatives that NOTHING CAN BE DONE to punish B. Hussein Obama for violating the US Constitution unless he is removed from Office by the US Senate.

IOW, Speaker Boehner, by doing nothing, Boehner violates his unique Constitutional Duty to “Control the Purse” or Impeach Obama, and passes the buck to a Democrat-controlled US Senate that will never Remove Obama from Office.

Obama knows that as long as Boehner stays in as Speaker, then Obama has permission do whatever he wants to do, with no fear of punishment.

Boehner as Speaker is ESSENTIAL to permitting Obama to violate the US Constitution on a near daily basis.

Stupid and weak Boehner is, by far, “The best Speaker of the House that the Democrat Party has ever had.”

Removal from Office can only come from the US Senate, and ONLY if the US House Impeaches BEFORE the US Senate even considers whether or not to bring an Impeachment to the Floor of the US Senate.

BTW, “stupid” people are those people who are incapable of learning, and Speaker Boehner and all those who refuse to use the Checks and Balances found in the US Constitution are TRULY STUPID, especially the Republican Member supporters of Boehner as Speaker in the US House of Representatives.

Force Boehner to resign as Speaker, and THEN Impeach Obama with New House Speaker Louis Gomert, Jim Jordan or Trey Gowdy.

Do nothing, and US Voters may find no EFFECTIVE reason to vote for a do nothing Republican slate of Candidates in November, 2014.

Interesting yet disturbing choice of words. I’ve long thought that the despicable media ‘ho’s would love one only one thing more than the Won: 24/7 “martyr” coverage of the Won.

JFK and MLK... so 20th century.

Impeachment needs to be for a clear ‘high crime and misdemeanor.’

Obama’s not defending the border? Trading Taliban for an American hostage?

We’re getting into political decisions and things outside impeachment.

If a ‘smoking gun’ shows up connecting Obama directly with IRS targeting or a cover-up, now we’re into Nixon territory and a provable impeachable crime.

Impeachment is a political error. Would be a mistake.

Not only that but Obama figures if he’s impeached it will draw Democrats to the polls like nothing else, and in fact may be the only way to stop the Republicans from taking the house.

King is right, but in the sense the the Pope might “possibly” be Catholic ;-)

Drawing up factual Articles of Impeachment and publishing same couldn’t hurt.

This… makes a sick kind of SENSE.

The way you win is by changing the game; going outside the "rules".
The best way to do that is you start violently preventing the illegal invaders; demanding Art 4, Sec 4 be honored; and, when the FedGov tries acting against slap them down, hard.

Obama is the Affirmative Action president. He got elected without any accomplishments. He ‘wrote on’ to his law review and was elected head of that despite never publishing any articles.

He’s ‘a symbol’ and has been all along.

Now he wants to be a martyr.

Unless connected to a slam dunk provable crime, it’s a mistake to impeach.

The American people need to start understanding that there is this abstract but honorable concept called The Office of the President, and that the current occupant is separate from that office.

Before, after, all same same to a narcissist.

He'd still be The Negro Martyr of All Time at taxpayer expense the rest of his life.

And even after he's dead.

It's not about democrats, it's all about Barry. Democrats are either sycophants or they're just more fleas to Barry like everyone else.

After the Nov.elections, #2 looks better, and it is preferable to risk riots by his minions than see the whole country sold down the river..

nothing to lose by IMPEACHMENT PROCESS. there are certainly enough grounds for impeachment and the dems are already using it to raise funds. Bohner has no balls and the repubs need leadership that acts and doesn’t weep... This admin has obstructed JUSTICE at every turn.. they could not survive a legit impeachment process...
