Conservatives are more forcefully than ever talking about bringing impeachment proceedings against President Obama. Forget about how this will affect the perception of a party and a Congress bereft of ideas. Forget about how this will be perceived, given that President Obama, committing no high crimes or misdemeanors, is our first black president. They hate his guts. They have Obama Derangement Syndrome.

It’s fueled by conservative anger over the president’s increasing use of executive actions on issues such as immigration and air pollution regulations, the exchange of Taliban detainees for the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdhal, and the familiar issue of the Affordable Care Act.

“I submit that Barack Hussein Obama’s unilateral negotiations with terrorists and the ensuing release of their key leadership without consult – mandated by law – with the U.S. Congress represents high crimes and misdemeanors, an impeachable offense,” former Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., wrote on his website in June.

Yeah, make sure you get his middle name in there to remind everyone that he’s got the same name as Saddam Hussein. Must be just as bad, too.

South Dakota’s Republican Party passed a resolution at its June convention calling for Obama’s impeachment for violating “his oath of office in numerous ways.”

“We wanted to have a shot across the bow to the president and Congress that nobody is above the law,” said Dr. Allen Unruh, the delegate who sponsored the resolution. “Our goal is to embolden Congress.”

Unruh said he has a “thick book on impeachable offenses of the president.” So does Andrew McCarthy, who’s been making the conservative media rounds with his recently released book “Faithless Execution: Building the Case for Obama’s Impeachment,” which offers a sort of template for removing Obama from office.

I urge the Republicans to keep doing this. Don’t come up with a better health plan. Keep pretending that it’s President Obama who screwed up Iraq. Continue pouding the impeachment drum. Then look at who the president is after 2016.

No responses to Push Is On To Impeach Obama

    Bring it on. These idiots are digging their own political grave.

    • Eric Trommater July 6th, 2014 at 11:44 pm

      I may be cynical but I don’t think this whole “bring-it-on” mentality is a good strategy. If you give the House the kind of broad investigative powers that an impeachment invokes and send them on a fishing trip through the Executive Branch, it will only hamstring and distract the President and America will suffer. I said the same thing about impeaching Bush. Dig deep enough and you will always find something that will appear scandalous to just enough of Americans to throw mud on the office and erode even more support for our government institutions.

      • tiredoftea July 6th, 2014 at 11:50 pm

        They will give it to themselves. All they need do is bring a resolution to the floor of Congress and get most of the fringe rightie votes. As if by magic, Impeachment proceedings!

        • Eric Trommater July 7th, 2014 at 12:04 am

          It may be inevitable but that doesn’t mean we should welcome it.

          • tiredoftea July 7th, 2014 at 12:10 am

            It is the conclusion to the fringe right talking amongst themselves for such a long time and not indulging themselves in reality. I don’t welcome it, per se, but if they go down this road, they will come out the other end with the same low(er) public perceptions as the Gingrich, Delay and others who, ultimately, helped Clinton get a few things done.

          • Eric Trommater July 7th, 2014 at 12:12 am

            Or use it to throw just enough mud to sneak in and take over all three branches of Government like they did in 2000.

          • tiredoftea July 7th, 2014 at 12:21 am

            They have two out of three. They don’t really need to take a chance on impeachment proceedings.

          • Eric Trommater July 7th, 2014 at 12:24 am

            Law of unintended consequences. They would have had no chance in 2000 if they hadn’t thrown just enough mud on Clinton to steal enough votes from Gore to sneak in their guy.

          • tiredoftea July 7th, 2014 at 12:35 am

            The FL fix was in with Jeb and Katherine Harris stirring up enough doubt about election procedures for the fringe right SCOTUS to step in and give the victory to W. Gore had more popular votes, overall and FL would have put him over in the electoral votes.

          • Eric Trommater July 7th, 2014 at 12:51 am

            Florida would have been meaningless if Gore had been so muddied by the Clinton Impeachment that he couldn’t even carry his home state of Tennessee.

          • tiredoftea July 7th, 2014 at 1:01 am

            Daddy Gore’s favors were called in long before Al was the Dem candidate. The Gore name was not much use to him.

        You see that’s not how I remember it. As I remember it the GOP held on to majorities in both houses for the next 7 years and even were able to sneak a completely unqualified aristocrat whose father the country had turned out of the Presidency 7 years earlier. The part of the election he stole was minuscule compared to the huge amount of the electorate who voted for him to “bring integrity back to the White House.”
        I also seem to remember that within two years of controlling all three branches of Government the GOP was able to undo all the progress made by Democrats in the 90’s and turn a budget surplus into huge deficits. My memory may be wrong but who knows?

    “a long list of impeachable offenses”
    They could make a good case by listing the drone program, killing American citizens without trial, Guantanamo, torture, renditions, warrantless spying …

    But no, they’re fine with all that, they list giving us health care and clean air, bringing our troops home, avoiding wars. And they expect us to take them seriously!!?

  4. AnthonyLook July 6th, 2014 at 11:52 pm

    Of course this is coming; It’s an African American president, after all; has there ever been any doubt that they would throw everything they could to see what would stick. Their lies and fake scandals all have been received with a loud thud of failure. Even this Benghazi committee witch hunt is obvious to them is a losing proposition; on issue after issue the pulse of America eludes the Republicans. Now that the inevitable results from their signature epic lie of war debacle are manifesting in Iraq and the American people (and the world) are resoundingly pointing the finger of deserved blame at their Republican feet, as they churn at the visuals of their failures; they have no recourse but to go nuclear- IMPEACH. The final self inflicted Republican deathblow that will have the result of a ferocious solidarity against all things tea party, against all things Republican. BRING IT ON !

  5. fancypants July 6th, 2014 at 11:56 pm

    I urge the Republicans to keep doing this. Don’t come up with a better health plan. Keep pretending that it’s President Obama who screwed up Iraq. Continue pouding the impeachment drum. Then look at who the president is after 2016
    Exactly ! its going to be ok with biden in charge ( if this happens at all ) these are the same gun toting morons who think there is a pot of gold at the end of the impeachment rainbow. Problem is…we are still at “undeclared” war with the middle east with no winner at the finish line and the the republicans have no idea who’s going to get us back to a 7 trillion dollar national debt NO IDEAS AT ALL.

    • Eric Trommater July 7th, 2014 at 12:10 am

      It doesn’t work that way unfortunately. Give the GOP that kind of investigative power and it’s just open season on the POTUS and the Executive Branch. If he had an afair on his wife 10 years ago it will be the lead on every news cast. Every nut ball conspiracy theory will suddenly be given credence. It will be a chance for his detractors from both parties to throw mud on him, disgrace the office and reinforce the meme that “all politicians are crooks.”

      • fancypants July 7th, 2014 at 12:15 am

        I cant say they are too far off the mark when they say politicians are crooks. If they did what we elected them to do ? We wouldn’t be having this conversation….

        • Eric Trommater July 7th, 2014 at 12:17 am

          I don’t think so. Some are but most people I know in Government would make a hell of a lot more in the private sector and just want to serve their country.

          • fancypants July 7th, 2014 at 12:19 am

            So where would we be if gwb got impeached….. See where im going with this ?????

          • Eric Trommater July 7th, 2014 at 12:27 am

            I do but the answer is no one knows. Remember Clinton’s Impeachment started as an investigation into White Water. Eventually they expanded and expanded the investigation until they backed him into a corner, on a completely unrelated matter, and forced him into a place where he had to either tell the world and his wife he had cheated on her or commit perjury.

            We may have gained a political advantage but at the cost of debasing the highest office in the land and embedding even further the cynicism toward American government and making the country ungovernable. These people in the GOP who want to push this process are pure evil and are doing so with the main goal of eroding the office. Kucinich would have just been playing into their hands.

          • fancypants July 7th, 2014 at 1:05 am

          • tiredoftea July 7th, 2014 at 1:07 am

            It was not politics. Kucinich was the last Dem with any moral scruples. There was a strong case to be made, he made it and the rest of Congress ignored him. W and his administration should have been, should still be, tried for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

            Congress and our country would be better off to stand again for respect for the law, especially of powerful people, including the President of the United States.

          • fancypants July 7th, 2014 at 1:09 am

            I could not agree more… I was so disappointed when it was decided there would be no investigation into the run up to the war in Iraq. I’m a registered Democrat… but I can’t help but feel there are too many cowardly Democratic leaders… I believe in a counter punch for every punch. GWB is living a rich privileged life after taking us into an illegal war which drained our treasure and blood.

  6. arc99 July 6th, 2014 at 11:57 pm

    A conviction in the US Senate requires a two thirds majority of the members present. Even if the GOP takes the Senate in 2014, 66 votes in favor of impeachment is not going to happen. Impeachment proceedings would be a pointless kangaroo court which will accomplish not a single tangible benefit for the nation.

    The party of NO ideas cannot win at the ballot box. So they launch voter id initiatives, cut early voting days, close polling places and rant about a replay of impeaching a twice-elected Democratic President.

    They are not stupid. They know there is zero chance of conviction. More importantly, I think they also know that the President has not committed impeachable offenses. This is pure partisan politics driven by a rabid, psychotic far right wing base. I am inclined to agree with jasperjava, let these contemptible cretins bring it on. Then as we head into November 2016, their failed charade will be the final nail in the coffin of GOP Presidential aspirations, and we will have a Democratic President selecting Supreme Court justices for at least another 8 years, even if Hilary does not run.

    Mr. Combs is correct that it would be extraordinarily dumb politically for the republicans to impeach President Obama. I don’t think there is any chance of impeachment absent significant new information.

    But I don’t understand how someone like Mr. Combs declares that conservatives “hate his guts.” There are about 25% of American who declare themselves to be conservative. Why does Mr. Combs accuse so many millions of Americans of hating the president on such a personal basis? I’m a conservative/libertarian and certainly do not hate President Obama. I almost always find him likeable on a personal basis.

    • arc99 July 7th, 2014 at 2:05 am

      Alan was offering his opinion on the motivations of the people advocating impeachment. I wholeheartedly agree with his opinion. The accusation is not directed at anyone conservative or otherwise who agrees that there are no legitimate grounds whatsoever to draft articles of impeachment,

      On the other hand, If trumped up accusations of impeachable offenses from people who are convinced that the birth certificate is a fake, is not indicative of irrational hatred, I don’t know what is.

      You say tat Alan is right and it would be “politically dumb”. I say the important consideration is that no impeachable offenses have been committed and frankly anyone who opposes impeachment only because it is “politically dumb”, is not really different from the zealots demanding impeachment.

      Nullifying the votes of over 62 million citizens by impeaching a President for no valid reason is what we should all be concerned about, regardless of whether or not it is “politically dumb”.

    • chair jackson July 7th, 2014 at 5:00 am

      Kansas city: considering that the house is run by the tea-party i don’t think they’ll let a lack of evidence prevent them from voting to impeach. the problem is that impeachment is not removal from office–only the senate can do that, and that’s not going to happen. so all this impeachment talk is just more political theater.

      He saved the American auto industry.
      Has cut our deficits by more than half.
      Killed Osama bin Ladin.
      Got Syria to give up their chemical weapons without firing a single shot.
      Presided over record breaking stock levels (with the Dow just recently closing over 17,000 for the first time in its 118-year history).
      Reduced unemployment from 10% to 6.1%.
      We just saw the fastest first quarter of job growth in the United States since 1999.
      The quickest drop in unemployment in 30 years.
      52 straight months of private sector job growth.
      9.7 million private sector jobs created.
      Over 8 million people signed up for health care thanks to the Affordable Care Act.
      Millions of Americans have gained, or kept, health care coverage thanks to Medicaid expansions and being able to stay on their parents’ insurance longer.
      He hasn’t started a single war.
      Hasn’t tried to confiscate a single gun.

    Congressional Republicans and their paid propagandists employed by News Corp, along with bombastic, bellicose blowhards such as Limbaugh have been shouting into the wind, calling for Obama to be impeached … ever since he was originally elected in 2008.

    The House Republican majority and Senate minority have become obsessed with discussing and voting on meaningless, totally symbolic, wholly partisan proclamations as a means of avoiding any discussion of useful, substantive, productive legislation that meets the needs and concerns of the American people at large.

    Besides, it’s an election year — to hell with problem-solving, there is much political posturing to be done.
    Bring on the faux scandals and absurd conspiracy theories.
    Oh, and Obama dined out with his family last week. Impeach him now!

      They’re all mostly, scared, old, white, men who have nothing better to do than watch Fox “News” all day long. They believe and regurgitate everything they hear from Fox, Limbaugh, Beck, Palin, Hannity, etc. and they refuse to watch ANY other news channel because Fox tells them not to. They’re a pathetic bunch, who by the way, are dropping like flies as I type this.

    More accurate headline– The push is on to raise a lot of campaign money for the November elections. Bring it on you fools!

    Here’s the thing (and the Talking Heads and Politicians know all about this, obviously they aren’t saying it ,lest their Clueless Minions quit sending those Donations), nothing could be worse for them than an Impeachment (and Conviction). Should The House Impeach, and The Senate Convict (we know they won’t, but let’s say that they did). We would then have a much more Liberal President Biden. Joe needs a Veep, and who better than a former Sec of State? What is better for running for President than being a Former Sec of State AND former Vice President ? Somewhere along the line, either Joe or Hillary pardons Obama (as in Ford and Nixon). THAT is why they will only TALK Impeachment, but never follow through.

    Agreed. Today’s GOP has reached a whole new, unprecedented, level of CRAY-CRAY. At this point, it’s just laughable. I agree, keep it coming! The only one’s they’re harming is themselves. PATHETIC.

      If they take steps to impeach him, won’t that slow down their project to turn us into a catholic country?

    Has anyone from the right decided exactly what it is Obama should be impeached for?

    • BanditBasheert July 7th, 2014 at 7:59 pm

      Anything and everything.
      But mostly for being black.

    What I find most amusing about this is Obama has committed an impeachable offense, he failed to prosecute the Bush Administration for it’s war crimes. The Republicans have grounds, but they have to find something else, anything else. The last thing they want is a long discussing about Republican support for the torture of prisoners in a war crimes trial.

    yeah impeachment. Can’t have a democratic president without impeaching him. It would set a bad precedent.

    To qoute the late Clara Peller:
    “Where’s The Beef?”
    Could it be in the crainal cavities of those infected with Impeachment Fever?

    Frankly, if the 2014 Midterms turns the Senate over to the GOP, you can expect the “Impeachment Fever” to get even hotter.

  27. Debbie Pineau July 8th, 2014 at 9:51 am and The charge of high crimes and misdemeanors covers allegations of misconduct peculiar to officials, such as perjury of oath, abuse of authority, bribery, intimidation, misuse of assets, failure to supervise, dereliction of duty, conduct unbecoming, and refusal to obey a lawful order. Offenses by officials also include ordinary crimes, but perhaps with different standards of proof and punishment than for nonofficials, on the grounds that more is expected of officials by their oaths of office.

    Republicans want to impeach democrat Presidents. They can’t stand it that a Democrat was elected twice again as our President. They will look for anything to accomplish this but they have a losing game. It just won’t happen they have no real grounds.
