Boehner says no to impeachment
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Cristina Marcos

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/9/2014 11:11:46 AM

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday said he doesn´t support calls from members of his party to impeach President Obama. Asked about former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin´s comments that Obama should be impeached over the influx of child migrants illegally crossing the border, Boehner said, “I disagree.” Then asked about members of the House GOP who have also urged for impeachment, Boehner repeated, “I disagree.” Palin called for Obama’s impeachment on Tuesday in an op-ed for Breitbart News. “The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored,” she wrote. “If after all this he´s not impeachable, then no one

Comments:
Even if he chose to do this, which I don´t think he ever will, now is not the time with a Senate controlled by Democrats. It would give Obama more material to mock the Republicans. He already does an excellent job of it. His arrogance is infuriating.

This country needs leadership.
Unfortunately, Boehner isn´t it.

Maybe he´ll sing a different tune if Repubicans take the Senate in November. Impeachment without a snowball´s chance for conviction is a joke.

Boehner has had Obama´s back from the beginning. Mr. Boehner should switch parties, but has been told he can do for Obama in his present position.

Impeachment is a bad idea for a host of reasons, all of which have been articulated on the various threads where it´s discussed. There is no upside except the good feeling we get from sticking it to Obama. Yes, he has earned it, yes, he deserves it. No, we cannot get a conviction and no, there is no benefit to what would end up being a futile gesture.

In ´98 impeachment didn´t just backfire on Republicans it launched Hillary´s political career. She spent the fall of ´98 campaigning for Dem senate candidates and was very successful.

A majority of adults are easily influenced by ´news´ anchors on CBS, NBC, ABC, and CNN. You know how they would cover impeachment.

Add to that the Democratic majority in the Senate, insuring defeat.

Impeachment under those circumstances, and in an election year when conservatives have only a decent chance, is a bad move.

Impeachment is one of those ideas that is correct in principal, but ruinous in practice. I think in this one Boehner is right. There are lots of things short of impeachment that can be used to minimize Obama, and Boehner´s lawsuit may be one of them. Tie him up in court and sap his energies. And if the Republicans gain the Senate in the election, shut down the administration completely until 2016

The one worlders, New World Order republicans and the usual weather vane establishment republicans telling you that impeachment is bad because it couldn´t possibly go anywhere without public support and public support might cost us valuable friendships with esteemed colleagues, bridge partners and chums at the local Georgetown African Violets Society garden parties.
Leadership sometimes entails doing the right thing even if it is unpopular or makes enemies. Going along to get along, taking the money from the biggest donors, parroting Karl Rove, that´s not leadership. that´s cowardice at a time when the republic faces its greatest threat. Article II Section 4 exists for a reason; the Founding Fathers didn´t park it there to take up space or to humor a group of independent voters in Ohio who showed up for a focus group.

I´m Sooooooooo proud of the ´let´s wait´ crowd. Their reasoning hinges on what the MSM will say, what the democrats will do, and wait until November when the republicans take the Senate (which could, very well, not happen). But NEVER about the right thing to do.

I know the DRUDGE poll, which shows more than 70% of the respondents voted for impeachment is skewed, because Drudge is visited mostly by right-wing whacko birds.

There´s no question Obama has done enough to warrant impeachment, but, just as OJ was guilty as charged except to the jury that freed him, the jury that would have to convict Obama consists of his lap dog Democrat senators headed up by Harry Reid, and they would ignore the mountain of evidence before them.

The White House would welcome an impeachment. The Democratic leadership would welcome an impeachment. Harry Reid would certainly welcome an impeachment.

The White Republicans would come off as being a pack of ´racists´ and even more so when the Senate not only fails to convict but simply brushes the House action off with barely a majority voting to convict - maybe not even that (news flash -you need a two/thirds majority vote to convict.)

The Clintons would also be for such foolishness from the Stoopid Party. Impeaching our first black president would be such a colossal public relations fiasco that B. J. Clinton´s impeachment would now and going forward be seen as a mere political stunt - lacking any legal substance (which of course was not the case). In essence, impeaching Barry would "unimpeach" Clinton.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves. Along with his telling amnesty activists that "no force on Earth can stop us," this should figure prominently in Republican campaign ads for the rest of the season... a prospect that must have tightened a few sphincters among congressional Democrats, especially those who have been working overtime to distance themselves from Obama, or even pretend they are actively

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was on “Special Report,” where he discussed the Ebola threat, border security and the Secret Service security lapses. "The Secret Service agency merits an independent review right now," Johnson said of the security incidents. Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
