Impeach Obama? Republican Says U.S. House Has Enough Votes

by at . Comments

Could President Barack Obama actually be impeached?

If you thought the "birther" conspiracy was over, think again. Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) helped stir the pot once again at a town hall meeting last weekend.

Answering questions from a fervent anti-Obama constituent referring to the "fraudulent" birth certificate of Obama, he said he would look into the matter.

He claimed, however, that there are enough House Republican votes to impeach the 44th President of the United States, albeit for an unstated reason.

Still, his comment raised more than a few eyebrows.

Only two Presidents have been impeached by Congress - Andrew Johnson (1868) and Bill Clinton (1998). Impeachment requires a majority vote.

Both were acquitted, as conviction and removal from office requires a two-thirds majority ... making it certain Obama is staying put until January 2017.
