Republicans Want To Impeach President Obama, And They Don’t Need A Reason
Increasingly conservative constituents are asking Republican elected officials, “Why can’t we impeach President Obama?” And in many cases, these Republicans (Senator Ted Cruz, Representative Blake Farenthold) answer by saying it’s a good question, and that they would love to impeach Obama, but the problem is the Democratically controlled Senate. Republicans lack any solid reasoning for impeachment (surprise), but that’s not what stands in their way. What stands between Republicans and an impeachment attempt is a tiny sliver of acumen remaining in the United States Congress.
Republicans don’t need a good reason. It’s President Obama after all, the man they have tried to delegitimize long before he was even elected president.
Let that sink in for a moment. — Now let me explain it another way.
Because of their baseless and indefensible hatred for President Obama, delirious and foolhardy right-wing extremists are calling for Republican elected officials to impeach him. And these office-holding GOP hacks, who would love nothing more than to fulfill lowest common denominator requests for their own political ambitions, must remind their crazed constituent base that the only reason this harebrained plan won’t work is because there’s some sanity left in the U.S. Congress, the Democrats who control the Senate, including leader Harry Reid.
Breathtaking isn’t it?
