EPAWashington -  House Speaker John Boehner (BAY’nuhr) says the House has no plans to impeach President Barack Obama. He says talk of impeachment is all a scam by Democrats at the White House.

Boehner says Democrats are trying to rally their supporters ahead of November’s mid-term elections to give money and show up to vote.

Some Republicans have said Obama would open the door to impeachment if he takes steps to end deportations of large numbers of immigrants here illegally, as the White House is contemplating. Other Republicans, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, already are calling for Obama to be impeached.

White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer say the White House is taking impeachment talk seriously.

Boehner needs to get his vision checked.
Especially from his right eye.

A majority of GOP'er (including me) want the President impeached.

So do:

The Third most important Congressman -- Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) "on the table ..."
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) "we need to bring impeachment hearings immediately ...
Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich
Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas
Former Congressman Allen West
Former VP candidate and half-term Governor Sarah Pallin
"Judge" Jeanine Pirro
Michael (Moishe Wiener) Savage

And those of us who are educated in U.S. law understand that there are no grounds for an impeachment. Yes, there is more to the Constitution than the 2nd Amendment. However, Obama is still black, so I guess facts and law are not really at issue.....

Because the attempt at removal from office will prove futile given current composition of the Senate. And it will harm our most important and very realistic goals: retaking the Senate, increasing our majority in the House and in 2+ years taking back the White House.

And what would happen if by some highly unlikely turn of events we actually managed to remove Barack from office? Biden's presidency? And then 2016, instead of being open seat election, we will have to run against an incumbent. No, impeachment is a bad idea no matter how you look at it.
