Iowa Congressman: Impeach Obama If He Grants Deportation Relief To Undocumented Immigrants

Just five days after House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) attempted to dismiss talk of impeachment as a “scam started by Democrats at the White House,” a key Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee told Fox News Sunday that the Republican House should impeach President Obama if he uses his executive authority to defer deportation for millions of undocumented adults.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who has led the charge to eliminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), successfully pushed this week to pass a House bill to defund the renewal of the deferred status for hundreds of thousands of undocumented residents brought to the United States as children.

Asked by host Chris Wallace about the probability of executive action by the Obama administration to stop deporting the millions of undocumented adults, King made it clear that this would be an impeachable offense. If Obama should take unilateral action to expand DACA beyond its current levels, he said, “Congress has to sit down and have a serious look at the rest of this constitution and that includes that ‘i’ word we don’t want to say.” Wallace pressed him to clarify the threat:

Wallace: But you’re saying if he were to do that then impeachment would be on the table?
King: I think then we have to start, sit down and take a look at that. Where would we draw the line otherwise? If that’s not enough to bring that about, then I don’t know what would be.

4. Until Obama reveals his 'real' birth certificate, they don't know where to deport him to

Everyone knows he was born in Kenya, but Congress can't act on it due to a technicality - His 'fake' birth certificate says he was born in Hawaii.

...In case it's needed,

2. How much clearer can it get that Boehner is not the leader of the Republicans in Congress?

3. And we still have RW idiots spewing the lies

One disconcerting feature of modern liberalism is that so many Democrats consider it reasonable to judge the Republican Party by its most rhetorically untethered adherents: Sarah Palin, for one. Or Rush Limbaugh. Texas Congressman Steve Stockman is another example.

Those three have been trying to nudge their fellow conservatives in the direction of impeaching President Obama. This suicidal idea has been duly ignored by the Senate Republican leadership, the House leadership, and every potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate. It has been rejected out of hand, really, by almost every prominent Republican in the country, including the never-shy Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Limbaugh is a famous talk radio provocateur; Palin a failed vice president candidate who resigned from Alaska’s governorship after less than one full term to cash in as an author and Fox News talking head. Stockman is a fringe character departing the House after losing a Republican senatorial primary in landslide. In other words, these are not people in positions of authority or responsibility within the Republican Party.
