Posted on 08/03/2014 11:16:46 AM PDT by Nachum
A Fox News Sunday panel that began skeptically of the GOP chatter about impeaching President Barack Obama erupted with charges of racism and lawlessness, as Fox contributor Juan Williams and Heritage Action leader Michael Needham went at it over the motivations behind the calls for impeachment.
Both National Journal editor Ron Fournier and Williams called out Needham for calling Obama lawless.
You listen to Michael and you understand why lots of Republicans think [Obama's] a demon, Williams said. Lots of people in the minority community see it as an attack against the first black President. They think its unfair, and so its gonna spur their turnout in the midterms, which is going to be critical in several races.
If you just break it down as a matter of political analysis and say who is this group [calling for impeachment], it reminds me that the Republican Party has become almost a completely white party, Williams continued. The people who want him impeached are all white, theyre all older, and guess what theyre all in the far right wing of the Republican Party.
He might as well have just said theyre all racists, Needham objected. Thats ridiculous .Youre the one demonizing people who are concerned about the fact that we have a crisis of Constitution.
Look, we can have a principled argument about President Obamas actions and use of executive actions, but you called him lawless, as if hes an outlaw, as if hes riding the range and we gotta go get that guy, Williams said.

(if you can stand it)
FOX “news” - the voice of Obama, Romney and Soros
has one (1) conservative on their panel this week,
and they will probably replace his “offensiveness”
with the hyperliberal Brit Hume.
Fox “news” is a joke in its effort to protect
Obama and Romney (two sides of the same sick statist coin).
Quit watching five plus ago now. When you have become MSLSD-lite, you’re dead to me. I do miss Gutfield, though.
I watch only Fox News. I can’t stand any other news channel.
I have a hard time putting up with Juan Williams and Jhemu Green. Rest of the talking heads are OK.
My questions to the Rat would be: So because Obama is black, you feel he is exempt from laws and the Constitution? If not, which ones should he adhere too?
When you have no rational argument, accuse your opponent of racism, bigotry, etc., as a defense. Typical Saul Alinsky tactic. Juan, why not simply pull your liberal head out of Obama’s ass, and then you might actually start thinking as an American once more, rather than being a tool for a Marxist scumbag.
"We moved our base camp last night and were now positioned literally
within feet of the river. Have been sitting here watching the border
patrol patrolling in their riverboats all night and all morning..."
Juan, Juan, aren't you forgetting Bill Clinton? Was it not the expressed opinion of many in your community that William Jefferson Clinton deserved the title of "first black President" and isn't it illogical to have 2 firsts? Make up you mind before Hillary makes it up for you!
I only watch the Bill Hemmer and Martha Show and Shepard Smith ,when Shepard Smith is not there ,surprisingly Shepard is not there very often
And was a Palace Guard media spearcatcher (D-AP) for the Clinton White House during the impeachment wars. Fournier was ALWAYS taking one for Team Democrat back in those days.
Sad to say I haven’t watched FNC in months - and seeing Juan appear everywhere was one of the reasons.
I’m down to talk radio (Rush, Levin) and Freerepublic.
Of course they do...they're always a victim. Oh...by the way...he's not black.
Barack the Kenyan isn’t going to be able to hide behind the “race card” forever.
Jonathan Turley describes the Kenyan as “lawless”. Juan is a pinhead.
Thank you for the sober points.
Romney would have been held to a much higher standard regarding the Constitution than Obama would have. I can guarantee you that while he is a RINO, the news networks would be on him like fire ants for every policy he had. None of the race card.
Romney should not run again and should never have run in the first place. He’s horrible and it makes me sick to see that he believes he can buy the nomination this time around too.
That said, I voted for him, because ANY GOP president would not make the type of appointments or get the type of power that Obama has gotten. The Dems are very dictatorial and Stalinist in their programs and behavior, and in Obama they finally found a figurehead who is ruthless and vindictive enough to simply ignore the Constitution and do whatever the radical left wants him to do.
