No, Obama won't be impeached

By USA Today

(File Photo)

As new revelations underscore the administration's epic incompetence in its handling of the Benghazi disaster and IRS abuses, some Republican voices in the House and Senate, along with pundits of every persuasion, have begun to speculate about "the I word" -- impeachment.

Even MSNBC, the most unapologetically progressive of all television news networks, has suggested that the president could face a serious effort to remove him from office.

As much as this prospect might excite the right and inspire the faithful with a renewed sense of purpose and unity, conservatives should steer clear of any push for impeachment as a catastrophic miscalculation for their cause. Regardless of damning evidence of dissembling and malfeasance that congressional committees could bring to light, there is no chance of driving the president from office, meaning that efforts to do so will damage the GOP far more consequentially than the administration.

Reality check

First, a reality check: The Republicans currently control only 45 seats in the U.S. Senate and would therefore need to persuade 22 members of the Democratic caucus to vote to oust a president of their own party in order reach the two-thirds majority the Constitution requires. The possibility of winning these votes is, simply, non-existent. The last time Republicans forced a Senate vote to convict a president of "high crimes and misdemeanors," they didn't win a single Democrat to their cause.

In fact, all three of the serious impeachment drives (against Andrew Johnson in 1868, Richard Nixon in 1974 and Bill Clinton in 1998-99) occurred when the president's opponents controlled both houses of Congress by hefty margins. Nixon resigned before the House or Senate got the chance to cast final votes on the charges against him, but his Republican Party controlled 11 fewer Senate seats than Obama's Democrats today, making the prospect of removal vastly more plausible.

Given the virtual impossibility of winning an impeachment fight, any Republican efforts would be suicidal. A failed attempt at removing the president would only confirm the negative image of the GOP as hyperpartisan radicals more interested in scoring political points than working to address the nation's problems. In the Clinton era, the failed impeachment crusade boosted the incumbent's popularity while undermining support for Republicans and their leader, Newt Gingrich.

A Republican attempt at terminating the Obama presidency would also enable Hillary Clinton to reprise her role as the loyal, long-suffering help-mate working to protect a political partner unjustly persecuted by "a vast right-wing conspiracy." Instead of concentrating their attention on Obama's role in the Benghazi debacle, Republicans should focus on the more questionable role of then-Secretary of State Clinton -- despite the fact that she has already resigned her office and placed herself beyond the reach of impeachment. Obama can never run for the White House again, but Hillary Clinton can -- unless she's appropriately discredited for her role in these bloody events.

Helps Biden, Obama

In addition to letting Clinton off the hook by aiming squarely at her boss, any impeachment drive could also boost the stock of another potential Democratic candidate, Vice President Biden. Concerted moves to push Obama from office could only enhance the stature of his constitutionally designated successor, whether those efforts succeeded or not. If Biden plays the role of president-in-waiting during an impeachment crisis, he looks more plausible in 2016.

And with no chance of success, even conjecture about impeachment ultimately serves to boost Obama. A series of scandals that looks increasingly dire -- on Benghazi, the IRS, improperly seized phone records from reporters and assorted prevarications with the press and public -- would still allow Obama a sense of victory and exoneration when he inevitably survives. Serious talk of impeachment makes any outcome less than that look like vindication.

Instead of pursuing an outgoing chief executive, Republicans should pursue the truth, no matter what. A new House select committee should uncover definitive conclusions to unanswered questions on Benghazi and the IRS. Those answers could weaken the administration even if they don't destroy it, and facilitate cooperation from a humbled White House on a conservative, reformist agenda that most Americans could embrace.

If new information exposes administration participation in especially egregious lies, there's always the chance for a resolution of censure -- a formal reprimand voted by Congress (and applied to only one prior president, Andrew Jackson) that would allow nervous Democrats to distance themselves from their leader without actually removing him from power. The old saying sagely declares, "If you strike the king, you must kill him." Even without a king, that's good advice for re-energized Republicans who can hardly afford reinforcement of their reputation as flailing failures.

    Could boost the stock of Joe Biden? From what, 1% approval to 5%? I’ll deal with that problem. The case you make about Hillary, sure I can see that, but when (not if) she runs, there’s plenty of dirt to go around regarding Benghazi even if obama takes the fall now. As far as formal impeachment proceedings, Nixon wasn’t impeached either but he could see that he was no longer effective as a governing agent. The same would be preferable for obama. After all, Clinton was impeached and stayed in office. Let’s agree, don’t impeach obama, and have him leave office. Deal.

      The only problem I see with your approach, p3driver, is that with his ego and gigantic sense of entitlement, I do not believe Obama would EVER resign, no matter HOW many of his fingerprints are found on all these scandals. You can see from the BLATANT lies he and his administration are telling–lies that are not even REMOTELY convincing, because they have ALREADY been shown to be LIES–that he figures he is untouchable, not to mention above the law

      Obama and all his minions are LYING their sorry behinds off, and while the mainstream media has made timid efforts to actually REPORT the news, for a change, you notice that Scheiffer on CBS did NOT call the Obama functionary on HIS blatant lies, even though he clearly did not believe what Obama’s designated liar was saying.

      I am sure Obama is still counting on the fawning lapdog media to cover his sorry butt, and that his Obamabots are so STUPID that they will support him no matter WHAT he does. So far,I see very little to contradict those facts–as much as I would love to believe otherwise!

    I think the speculation about impeachment is good pressure to apply to Obama, but better if it comes indirectly, such as valid legal claim that something violates the constitution. We all know what that implies. If Congress would just do it’s job and not let him get away with anything and stand up for what is right, simply because it is right, and stand against something that is not right, simply because it is wrong, and demand it more firmly. I will give you 1 example: Obamacare. Is there one person who voted for this who actually read it? Did they have adequate time to read it before voting? Well what if they just all said, sorry I cannot vote on something I haven’t had the time to read, that would so seriously effect the lives of my constituents. I watched on c-span a session of congress over the health care act, and I was outraged. A Senator actually brought a copy of the bill with him, and it was supposed to be a 6 hour session to discuss the healthcare bill. And Obama scolded him for bringing a copy of the bill (as in you don’t think we are really going to discuss what is actually inside of this document) The senator replied, well yes I think we are because that is what we are hear to do, and there are some things in hear that concern me that I think we need to discuss. Then Obama “You know Senator, that’s exactly the kind of prop that prevented them from having a real conversation.” And Obama got up and left, and the 6 hour session lasted maybe 10 minutes. Obama only gets away with it because they let him. There should not have been 1 vote by anyone, for something they did not read. On the other hand, the congress should have got up and walked out on Obama, and said, “Well if we don’t have the time to read it, we aren’t going to discuss what is inside of this document, then we vote no.” What then can the press report? I mean they are the ones letting him get away with it and they don;t have to.

      “. . . such as valid legal claim that something violates the constitution.”

      Do you mean like illegally appointing NLRB members and a federal and appeals court have BOTH said he violated the constitution? Or do you mean his obvious violations of the constitution in other areas such as releasing illegal aliens from detention, or such as violating federal bankruptcy laws to take over auto makers and wipe out the investors while giving the UAW half ownership of the auto companies?

      There are several reasons why Obama will NOT be impeached: Democrat control of the Senate, Obama is half-black, and Obama is a product of the Chicago thuggish political regime. Republicans are afraid of him and they are afraid of the civil war that would come to our streets since Obama has worked for almost five years to divide and conquer. When 93%-95% of the black population votes for him, don’t you think they would rise up with a revolution if he was even close to being impeached? And that doesn’t even consider the Black Panthers or the Muslims.

      I think Obama is planning a civil war for while, and I can imagine a bank shut down would cause mass rioting when EBT cards are not working. These people would not have stock of essentials for survival. But I think the number of people who would stand against Obama is greater, especially now. If Obama has done all of these things, then why don’t they file charges. In order for Obama to be able to declare martial law, he would need to have military top brass on his side, and I don’t think he does. In my opinion, I would prefer civil war than letting this guy destroy the country any more. If you wait until his term is up, your screwed. Really it is that serious. Go after him, and let him start it, but be ready. I read a lot of other blogs, alternative, and I always read the comment section, because I get good information from the comments. Sometimes in the comments you find people in the military anonymously disclosing things, either directly or as a hint. I also read international news from other countries, such as Iran and Israel. And you can find all sorts of things that reveal information in local news that is not available in the US. I read in either an Iranian or Israeli paper, that Admiral G. (forget his name but he was fired for ignoring stand down orders in Benghazi) was suspected of organizing a military coup, and that was the real reason he was fired. Don’t know if it’s true, but after Benghazi Obama cleaned house in the military, with a lot more than General Ham and Admiral G. I think there were up to 6 or more generals quietly and secretly reassigned to desk jobs. Like if you read some local Egyptian news paper, there is a much bigger story on Benghazi than anyone realizes, with the dots well connected.

    I can see your point and agree. Personally I feel that the Dems who put him in office should remove him from office or suffer the pallor he puts on the Democratic party. Above all, seeking the truth is the number one priority. The amount of lies told and maintained by this entire administration is unbelievable. Additionally the laying open of the lies will hopefully make ANY liar, of any political persuasion, think twice before jumping in to the cesspool.

    I just read a poll on “Godfather” that shows that 25% of Democrats polled want to push for impeachment. Look at all of the Democrat politicians that have “retired” this year and in particular Senator Max Baucus, one of the sponsors of Obama Care. It just may happen, since more and more is coming out every single day.

    One of the big problems with removing HUSSEIN Oblunder from office is the line of succession. Smilin Joe “shotgun” Biden would not be a good choice.
    The line of succession is designed to be a life insurance policy for the President so that no one wants to remove him from office.

    Impeachment will never happen, even if the Republicans were in the majority. They do not want the first “mixed race” President to be impeached by them. They would think it would eliminate them from consideration by African-American voters (because they certainly are receiving a majority share now, right?).

    The best we can hope for is to get a impotent president who becomes a figurehead and cannot pass any of his leftist dogma or radically change America any more than he already has. This can be accomplished by electing conservatives (not RINOs or CINOs) to the House and Senate. It may also be helped by lawsuits being filed and occupying the Administration with those lawsuits so it cannot put its attention toward ruining this country even more.

    This article is by USA Today! I believe, my opinion, that USA Today and other liberal organizations will tell Conservatives not to be involved in this move because it would hurt the GOP! The GOP is already hurting because they have done nothing on so many issues concerning obama and his administration. Impeachment is really not the way to go but the proof that he is an illegal president is but no one in the GOP will ever go in that direction even though the truth is there. So, we will just go through 3 years and 7 months of having the country destroyed on a daily basis and then if those that would like to change the Constitution to have him reelected over and over again we will live in what kind of country?

    Rarely do I agree with USA Today, but their assessment here is right on the money. Despite being up to his neck in a dung hill, Obama’s approval ratings remain little changed, even tho the same folks who are so enthralled with his rock star persona also increasingly think the country is going to Hell in a hand-basket and that it is very important for inquiries into these scandals to proceed.

    There is no way, no how, not never, that the first half-black President is going to be impeached. Just ain’t gonna happen. Republicans need to focus the attention of know-nothing (aka low information) voters not on Obama, but on what he represents: big government run amok. That’s who and what liberals represent. Conservatives should be laser-focused on one thing: exposing the dangers of liberal ideology, and using that information to educate voters, hold the House and win the Senate in 2014. Obama can’t run again, so screw him. Personal attacks only garner more sympathy from clueless voters, especially women, who respond to his message of “fairness” and equality of result, rather than equal opportunity for all. They listen to his rhetoric, ignore the facts, and think he is really trying to FIX this stuff!

    Better to target the people representing his ideology who CAN run, and defeat them at the polls. It will take years to root out all the like-minded (and emboldened) hacks he has put in place in the Federal establishment, (assuming it can even be done) and job one should be controlling the flow of legislation and spending to keep the damage to a minimum for the rest of his term.

    Obama is not the problem…liberalism is the problem.. and attacking him personally will not resolve the issues, any more than it solved the Bill Clinton fiasco. Most of the time the Prince of Fools is so disengaged he actually may NOT know what all his minions are doing. He doesn’t have to! He has put, and is putting, people in place that will do exactly what he would do, so he doesn’t have to be engaged to further the government takeover of every aspect of our lives, and that’s what has to be stopped if our merit and morality-based society is to survive!

    Never underestimate the Republican’s ability stumble and fall… and to miss a prime opportunity.

    Rather than chase the impeachment of a lame-duck President – which is more likely to hurt the Republican brand – they should focus on the issues. Then use THEM, and a slew of CONSERVATIVE candidates, to orchestrate a CONSERVATIVE takeover of the Senate in 2014. As well as grow their majority in the House. Then use those majoriies to repeal the entire “Obama agenda”.

    But they won’t. ’cause they’re really not that bright. But then it’s our won fault. Afterall… we put, and keep, ‘em there.

      Couldn’t agree with you more. Presently a few Senators that were gaining some respect just blew it on the immigration bill. And Rand Paul speculating on Hillary’s 2016 prospects is pointless because Hillary has not even hinted at running for office, even if he thinks she is. This is so off message from any relevant issue, he shot himself in the foot on that one if he is planning to run for office. I agree that they should focus on 2014, and then they can take him down, not necessarily by impeachment. In any event there is still one power that Obama can’t usurp.

A huge, gigantic percentage of the 12-13 year old females in the U.S. now are giving each other oral sex and such on a regular basis.. More American women are engaging in lesbo sex than what they are having with their husbands.. In fact, it was the American woman who put the loser back in the White House. All he had to do was to promise them cradle to gave vaginal care from cradle to grave, and free abortions in the tri-mester, 8th month of pregnancy.. and.. YOU pay for this..

    I have to agree with you, and they should also start organizing for government wins in individual states, who start making court cases about the laws being against the constitution, and just get the unconstitutional laws off the books. I believe to a certain extent america is now being judged, and if all corruption on both sides of the house is not cleaned up, it will be the end of america anyway. Any civilization who has supported homosexuality has been wiped out. I watched an interesting movie last night about the string of devastating storms that have pounded the US starting with Katrina.

    This article is correct. There are other good reasons for not impeaching Obama; for one, we’d be stuck with idiot Biden. I say give the liar-in-chief another four full years of rope to hang himself and the whole DemocRat Party with. Then Dick Morris’s prediction will come true—there won’t be another DemocRat elected President for 20 years!

      There’s a DIFFERENCE between IMPEACHMENT and REMOVAL FROM OFFICE (or have you forgotten B.J. Clinton?).

      President Clinton WAS IMPEACHED (by the House), but NOT REMOVED FROM OFFICE (by the Senate).

      Just because the House IMPEACHES the President, that DOESN’T mean that he is AUTOMATICALLY REMOVED FROM OFFICE.

      IF there’s evidence to support Obama’s Guilt in the OUTRAGEOUS and ILLEGAL activities of HIS Administration (the IRS, etc.), then the House SHOULD impeach him.

      THESE Illegal Activities of the Obama Administration WILL BE his “Legacy” (like B.J. Clinton has Monica and the Blue Dress)!

      “This article is correct. There are other good reasons for not impeaching Obama; for one” …he needs to be charged with murder…

    Those are all good points, and probably true. What we need to do is work to use Obama’s dishonesty and Chicago politics against the Democrats in the mid-term election. Once we have the seats in the House and the Senate, we could repeal Obamacare AND impeach Obama.

    I haven’t seen (or heard) enough to know if President Obama had DIRECT KNOWLEDGE (or DIRECTED) the illegal activities of HIS Executive Branch (IRS, etc.) – BUT, if there turns out to be sufficient EVIDENCE to prove his guilt, then YES, he COULD be IMPEACHED (with the current Congress).

    Will he be REMOVED FROM OFFICE? Hell NO!

    There’s NO WAY Harry Reid and the rest of the Liberal goons in the Senate would convict him (remove him from office), but – like B.J. Clinton – he COULD be IMPEACHED.

      So, why not charge him with murder? Any DA in any either huge or jerkwater town would get a conviction…at least in a red state (:

    What I am waiting for is the rulings of the Alabama SC and the eligibility trial of BO. If it is found that the concludes that BO is unqualified to be president and used fraudulent documents to establish his credentials as being qualified, there is no way for him to duck the charge of fraud. He is the only one responsible for the forged documents to be presented as evidence for his presidency. There is no way for him to say he knows nothing of the documents. He can’t blame anyone else for them. He will have to open his sealed records to try and claim his innocence or be charged with a felony for having used fraud to gain his position. There will be no defense, no one to accuse or blame, no other alternative than to step down. If it goes as far as impeachment, I don’t think there will be many Dems that could in good judgment keep supporting him. For them to rally around him in the face of him committing a clear felony will only expose themselves for covering for a criminal acts, which could jeopardize their political careers.

      Fraud? No! He was responsible for those lives and chose to let them die. He is a murderer…and plenty of obvious evidence for that….

    Those who want impeachment are justified but it won’t happen for most of the reasons mentioned. This president has caused more damage to the country than any in history. It is socialism which is at the core of the problems we face. This started more than a century ago.

    There has not been a country so divided in many decades. The rift will not be repaired easily and certainly not while Obama is in power.

    We may not be able to remove him from office, but we can remove him from power by opposing him and fighting him on every level and in every way.

    I think that we also must acknowledge that his supporters are not “low-info”. They have been brainwashed with plenty of false info. It is not that they are un-informed. If that was the case, the truth would have an effect on them. It does not. They believe the lies. Truth is not relevant to them.

    Keep exposing the lies. Keep revealing the truth. more people are waking up. This government must be removed. There are many types of revolutions.

    I think we ought to wait until after his term to impeach him. After? Well yes. We need the election results similar to what happened to the incompetent Jimmy Carter. Then we need to have competent specialists look at Obama’s history and expose the fraud and corruption. (Remember, Bush was too nice to do that to Clinton.) Then, when the fraud is finally exposed, we cancel the Presidential Library, cancel his pension, and declare him persona non-Grata. Exile was the punishment for such crimes in ancient Rome.
