Republican Congressman Begs Obama: ‘Please Don’t’ Make Congress Impeach You
You see, if President Obama is impeached, it’s because he made Congress do it. Congress has no control over what it does. It is forced to do what Obama wants. If this is true, and Congress impeaches Obama, it will then be the first time Congress listened to him.
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) pleaded with President Barack Obama over the weekend not to force the House of Representatives to begin impeachment hearings by taking executive action on reforming the immigration process after Congress failed to do so.
In an interview on Sunday, Fox News host Chris Wallace asked King what Republicans would do if the president decided to take executive action to stop the deportation of 11 million undocumented immigrants.
“None of us want to do the thing that’s left for us as an alternative,” King explained. “But if the president has decided that he’s simple not going to enforce any immigration law or at least not against anybody except the felons — which essentially he has done already, this is a broader group of people — I think Congress has to sit down and have a serious look at the rest of this Constitution, and that includes that i-word that we don’t want to say.”
The Iowa Republican added: “And I only say that now because I want to encourage the president, ‘Please don’t put America into a constitutional crisis. Please don’t do that. There’s too much at stake in this country to be decided that you can take over the Constitution and write it at will.'”
You hear that, you Marxist, Kenyan-born, birth certificate-forging, America-hating president? Don’t make Congress impeach you. It’s your choice!
