    OT: WHITE HOUSE EXPECTS JOHN BOEHNER TO TRY FOR IMPEACHMENT

    Sam Stein | HuffPost | 07/25/2014

    WASHINGTON -- One of President Barack Obama's top advisers said on Friday that he expects House Republicans will ultimately file articles of impeachment against the president.

    Dan Pfeiffer, a senior aide who has been with the administration since Obama first took office, told reporters that he anticipated that a lawsuit filed by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) over executive actions taken by the president on health care would ultimately not be enough to satisfy some of the more vocal conservatives in Congress.

    Pfeiffer added that coming executive actions surrounding immigration reform would only stoke the impeachment flames.

    "I think a lot of people in this town laugh that off," said Pfeiffer. "I would not discount that possibility. I think that Speaker Boehner, by going down this path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some point in the future."

    Speaking at the Christian Science Monitor breakfast, Pfeiffer based his prediction on several factors. The first was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) calling for articles of impeachment to be drawn over the president's executive action allowing certain young undocumented immigrants to stay in the country. The second was a CNN poll released Friday morning showing that while just 33 percent of the country supported impeachment, a full 57 percent of Republicans were in favor of it.

    "I think impeachment is a very serious thing that has been bandied about by the recent Republican vice presidential nominee and others in a very unserious way," said Pfeiffer. "And no one has even made any allegation of anything that would be within six universes from what is generally considered in that space." ….

        NEW GOP LEADER WON'T TAKE IMPEACHMENT OFF THE TABLE

        Zach Carter | HuffPost | 07/27/2014

        WASHINGTON -- Incoming House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) refused on Sunday to take impeaching President Barack Obama off the table if Obama takes executive action to limit deportations.

        On "Fox News Sunday," host Chris Wallace asked Scalise, who was recently elected majority whip, if the House would consider impeachment. Scalise repeatedly dodged the question.

        "This might be the first White House in history that's trying to start the narrative of impeaching their own president," Scalise said. "Ultimately, what we want to do is see the president follow his own laws."

        White House press secretary Josh Earnest warned in a press briefing last week that House Republicans may eventually bring up articles of impeachment against Obama, arguing that conservatives would not be satisfied with the effort from House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to merely sue the president over his use of executive orders.

        Wallace pressed Scalise on the issue Sunday. "Impeachment is off the table?" he reiterated.

        "The White House wants to talk about impeachment and they're trying to fundraise off that, too," Scalise said.

        "I'm asking you, sir," Wallace interjected.

        "The White House will do anything they can to change the topic away from the president's failed agenda," Scalise said.

        But while SCALISE WOULD NOT RULE OUT IMPEACHMENT, he did take another extreme Republican negotiating tactic off the table -- shutting down the government if Republicans don't get what they want in budget talks. The current round of government funding expires at the end of September, and Scalise said Republicans would not shut down the government to get their way in the talks.

        "No government shutdown?" Wallace asked.

        "No," Scalise said.

      • Re: "Silly, silly elk. Get your snout out of those rags."

        So, nobeach, does that mean Boehner suing the President is not one of the silliest, dumbest things ever started in Congress, something many of the Repubs are already regretting, even if only because they are now getting concerned about the impact it will have on the mid-term elections?

        Never mind that it is a serious distraction from what right now should clearly be the main Repub focus:

        BENGHAZI! BENGHAZI!! BENGHAZI!!!

        FOREVER!!!!!

    • #$%$ needs to impeached! And this is coming from an Ohioan that knows him for the Orange Trash he really is. Can you imagine someone dying their face orange? Only a RW Clown would do that.

    • Obama has already committed high crimes and misdemeanors which entitle him to be impeached, but I would be amazed if Boehner takes any steps to impeach him. What Boehner should have done, long ago, is appoint a special committee to investigate whether or not impeachment charges should be pursued. Having failed to do that, it is unlikely he will do anything but stand by and watch Obama continue his destruction of freedom and prosperity, and his efforts to subvert our constitution and sovereignty .

      • JOE SCARBOROUGH SHOWS GOP HOW TO RESPOND TO QUESTIONS ABOUT OBAMA'S IMPEACHMENT

        The Huffington Post | By Catherine Taibi | 07/28/2014

        Joe Scarborough gave Republicans a brief lesson Monday on how to respond to questions about President Obama's impeachment.

        Scarborough's frustration was pointed at House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who dodged questions from Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday about whether or not the House would consider impeaching the President. Scalise would not rule out the possibility and avoided giving Wallace a straight answer.

        But for Scarborough, the answer is very simple.

        "If you're a Republican legislator at home, please take out a pen and a notepad," he said, before asking his "Morning Joe" panel to ask him the same question that Wallace asked Scalise.

        "Are you interested in pursuing impeachment against the President?" panelist Mark Halperin asked.

        Ready for his long, complex and drawn-out response?

        "No," Scarborough said, staring sternly into the camera.

        “WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM?" HE SHOUTED ON. “[SCALISE] IS THE NUMBER THREE RANKING REPUBLICAN IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES! AND YOU CAN’T SAY ‘NO’ TO THAT ANSWER? IT’S DEVASTATING!”

        Exactly, rodent. The Tea Party and RWNJs have to get Boehner to stop being a #$%$ and just go ahead and ram Impeachment past the RINOs, get it on the table, for gods sake.

      • First of all Boehner needs to impeach Harry Reid then Eric Holder then Obama. Take away all the protectors and obstructionist then cut the head off the snake.
