    In our political correct world of today it won't happen, he is simply too high on the liberal media minority ladder, if America fails it will be in large part due to media.

    The media put him in office. You do not think all the hoopla that went on with his inauguration and that sham of the Nobel Piece Prize was without the help of the corrupt media. Well you have got to be dumber than a rock.

    White House: Republicans May Push to Impeach Obama If They Get the Chance

    Jul. 25, 2014 5:00pm Fred Lucas

    The notion of impeaching President Barack Obama got substantial attention Friday from two White House officials, who both said senior Republicans wanted to see it happen. But they couldn’t name any senior Republicans when pressed.

    Further, White House press secretary Josh Earnest expressed doubt about whether House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) was sincere when he said impeachment is not on the table.
    “I do believe that the speaker said on a number of occasions that there would not be steps taken by Republicans to shut down the government over health care,” Earnest said of Boehner, adding, “Maybe you need to ask him a little bit more about whether impeachment is on the table or not.”
    Some conservatives have called for impeaching Obama regarding executive overreach on issues such as Obamacare, immigration and guns without congressional authorization. The Democratic National Committee and Organizing for America have consistently used impeachment in fundraising emails to warn donors about what could happen if Republicans win more seats in the House and gain control of the Senate.
    The topic first made news Friday after Dan Pfeiffer, a counselor to the president, told a Christian Science Monitor breakfast: “I would not discount that possibility. I think Speaker Boehner, by going down the path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some in the future.”
    Asked about the comment, Earnest said, “There are senior members of the Republican Party, or prominent voices in the Republican Party who are calling for exactly that.”
    “Who? Sarah Palin?” CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked, referring to the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate who called for Obama’s impeachment.
    “She mentioned it,” Earnest said.
    Acosta followed, “Is anyone in the Republican leadership talking about that?” He added: “There’s been a lot of fundraising emails with the word impeachment in them. This seems an awful lot like a fundraising ploy, not a real thing. You don’t really think the president will be impeached do you?”
    Earnest again stuck to the same point without being specific.
    “I think there are some Republicans, including some Republicans who are running for office hoping they can get into office so they can impeach the president,” Earnest said. “That is apparently a view they have to hold because it is a view that they express publicly.”
    Acosta asked, “Is the White House Counsel’s office looking at this? Have you been studying the possibility of him being impeached?”
    Earnest didn’t have a specific answer, and pivoted to how the important issues are reforming the Veterans Administration and addressing the border crisis.
    “Here we are, one week before Congress is about to leave town and there is not a discernible path that Congress is going to make progress on this,” Earnest said. “Instead, we see Republicans giddy about the prospect of passing legislation along a party line vote to pursue a taxpayer funded lawsuit agains the president of the United States merely for doing his job.”
    Earlier in the briefing, Earnest was critical of Boehner for saying there would not be a vote on immigration reform. Sirius XM radio reporter Jared Rizzi asked: “You quoted the speaker about immigration. The speaker has also said he is not interested in impeaching the president. So why do you believe what the speaker says about immigration but not when it comes to impeachment?”
    Earnest said there is reason to be skeptical of what Boehner says on topics.
    “I do believe that the speaker said on a number of occasions that there would not be steps taken by Republicans to shut down the government over health care,” Earnest said. “We did see that that happened. Maybe you need to ask him a little bit more about whether impeachment is on the table or not. Maybe he’ll give you a more detailed answer than he has thus far. There’s no doubt there are other prominent voices in the Republican party that have indicated impeachment. That’s party of their agenda. The president’s agenda is not focused on those political sideshows. It’s focused on an agenda to expand economic opportunity.”
    Both a CNN poll and a Fox News poll showed big majorities opposed impeachment.

    White House Fears Impeachment If Obama Unilaterally Grants Amnesty

    White House says it is taking impeachment talk seriously



    As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn't wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama -- but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals.

    Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.
    Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to Obama, said Friday that the White House is taking the prospect of impeachment in the GOP-controlled House more seriously than many others in Washington, who see it as unlikely.
    Obama's senior advisor, Dan Pfeiffer, as quoted by The Hill: "I saw a poll today that had a huge portion of the Republican Party base saying they supported impeaching the president. A lot of people in this town laugh that off. I would not discount that possibility.”
    Writing for Breitbart News earlier this month, Governor Palin made a Constitutional case for Obama's impeachment based in large part on the ongoing border crisis. "Without borders, there is no nation," Palin writes. "Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate."
    In a Congressional meeting Friday, some House Republicans discussed the option of impeachment should the president continue to ignore the laws he is Constitutionally required to uphold.

    WASHINGTON -- A top aide to President Obama said it's possible that Obama could be impeached by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.
    House Speaker John Boehner's decision to proceed with a lawsuit against the president has "opened the door" to the third presidential impeachment in the nation's history, Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer told reporters at a Friday breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.
    "Impeachment is a very serious thing that has been bandied about by the recent Republican vice presidential nominee and others in a very un-serious way," he said, referring to former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. "We take it very seriously and I don't think it would be a good thing."


    ONPOLITICS
    Boehner disagrees with Sarah Palin on impeaching Obama

    Pfeiffer was quick to add that "no one has alleged anything that is even six universes from what is generally considered" to be an impeachable offense.
    Boehner has dismissed calls for Obama to be impeached. His spokesman, Michael Steel, called Pfeiffer's comments "a fundraising exercise for Democrats."
    "We have a humanitarian crisis at our border, and the White House is making matters worse with inattention and mixed signals," Steel said. "It is telling, and sad, that a senior White House official is focused on political games, rather than helping these kids and securing the border."
    Later, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said "prominent voices in the Republican party" have called for impeachment, but was hard-pressed to name one other than Palin. "I think there are some Republicans, including some Republicans that are running for office, hoping that they can get into office so they can impeach the president," he said.
    A CNN/ORC poll released Friday shows 35% of Americans favor impeachment, which is about the same support for efforts to impeach Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush. Pfeiffer noted that a majority of Republicans -- 57% -- favor impeaching Obama.
    Impeachment is the bringing of charges against a president or federal judge by the House of Representatives. A president can only be removed after a trial on those charges by the Senate.
    Boehner has chosen a less drastic approach with a plan to sue Obama over his decision to delay enforcement of a provision in the Affordable Care Act requiring employers to provide health insurance. That plan passed the House Rules Committee Thursday, clearing the way for a vote on the House floor.

    USATODAY
    GOP lawsuit against Obama could outlast his presidency

    Pfeiffer said the lawsuit won't have an impact on how the president uses his executive authority. In fact, he said, the threat of lawsuits validates that Obama's executive actions are "far from the small ball that some have accused it of being."

    CNN Poll: 35 Percent Want Obama Impeached

    Katie Pavlich | Jul 25, 2014



    According to a new CNN poll, more than one-third of American voters want to see President Obama impeached. In 2006, just 30 percent of voters wanted to see President George W. Bush impeached.
    35% want Obama impeached, with nearly two-thirds saying the President should not be removed from office.

    There's an obvious partisan divide, with 57% of Republicans but only 35% of independents and 13% of Democrats backing a move to impeach Obama.

    The poll's release came one day after the House Rules Committee approved – along a party line vote – a resolution authorizing Speaker John Boehner's lawsuit against the President. The GOP controlled House is expected approve it next week.

    Boehner and House Republicans plan to sue Obama over his health care law. They claim he violated the Constitution by circumventing Congress and changing the law's employer mandate on his own.

    By a 57%-41% margin, Americans say House Republicans shouldn't file the suit. As with the question on impeachment, there's a wide partisan divide over the lawsuit.
    The majority of voters disagree with calls from people like Sarah Palin for President Obama to be removed from the Oval Office.
    One of the most important numbers in the poll has to do with President Obama's executive overreach as 45 percent say he has gone too far.
    When it comes to expanding the power of the presidency, has Obama gone too far? Forty-five percent say yes, with three in 10 saying the President's actions have been about right, and 22% saying he hasn't gone far enough.
    You can see the entire poll here.
