Speaking in Luling, Texas on Saturday, Republican Representative Blake Farenthold said Republicans could probably get the votes to impeach Obama. He apparently ignored the small detail that President Obama is in his second term, and that’s because more Americans voted for him over Romney. That doesn’t phase these Republicans. They live in their own little world, and world we affectionately call the conservative bubble. They talk like they speak for all Americans. — Well of course Obama is a joke, and we need to do something about it. And so yeah, we could impeach him if we decided to vote on it.
BuzzFeed — Texas Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold said that Republicans could secure the votes to impeach Barack Obama in the House of Representatives. Farenthold was speaking at an open house held at a Civic Center in Luling, Texas, Saturday according to a YouTube video description and the Congressman’s online schedule. His answer came from a constituent’s question about conspiracy theories surrounding President Obama’s birth certificate.
“I think unfortunately the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue,” Farenthold said. “The original Congress when his eligibility came up should have looked into it and they didn’t. I’m not sure how we fix it.”
“You tie into a question I get a lot: ‘If everyone’s so unhappy with the president’s done, why don’t you impeach him?’” Farenthold continued. “I’ll give you a real frank answer about that: If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted.”
So the only thing stopping House Republicans from making asses of themselves (well, too late) is the Senate? That’s a scary thought.
What these Republicans are blissfully unaware of is that the rest of the country is laughing at them, particularly young adults who tend to me more liberal, and definitely less Republican. We laugh at them because they are so utterly ignorant, you can do nothing else but chuckle. Republicans think it’s perfectly acceptable to deride the president over his birth certificate, and then claim it has nothing to do with race. Now a Republican says they have the votes to impeach the president, even though Americans overwhelmingly put him back in office for a second term only 9 months ago. No wonder congress has such a low approval rating. And that’s just the way Republicans want it, because they hate government, and hell, they hate most Americans.
