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

by at .  Updated 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.

Ancient Quotes Describing Obama ! "A scoundrel and villain...plots evil with deceit in his heart - he always stirs up dissension. Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant."
"Arrogant lips are unsuited to a fool - how much worse lying lips to a ruler!"
"It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury - how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!"
"The earth...cannot bear up [under] a servant who becomes king."
Are these quotes from Moses? Or Nostradamus? Or Shakespeare?
No, they are from the Book of Proverbs and are on the internet.
Although Obama isn't descended from slaves, he may feel he's destined to become a black-slavery avenger. (Google "The Background Obama Can't Cover Up.")
Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens!

If you feel comfortable with the way the Republican led Congress has been working for We The People, then you seriously (Please do not take offense to this) are dumb. The Pubs wish to know the "Middle Class" out of action to be able to have big business world wide run similar to a Cat House. They control the $$$ while the workers are rewarded per how the Pimping Neoclowns feel.

You are dumb and I hope you do take offense to this. You are as brainwashed as Jules. I take it you have voted for obama twice and you probably have the FREE cell phone to prove it. Congress is doing damage control because your Obama has wrecked this country to the point that Bush seems like 100 years ago. What were you thinking? All Obama wants to do is politic for more votes. What has he done for you? The economy is shit, business's are cutting hours, gas prices are high as a bitch and there is no end in sight. How long u people gonna blame someone else? Pimping NeoClowns? Speaking English dumbass.

Obama and Holder are set on destroying this country and so many of you voted for him twice. Jobs are being cut to under 40 a week. Obamacare is a tangled web, no ones email is safe and many of you helped by voting for him.

Impeachment is the part of bringing to trial. Neither president was convicted, but both were impeached. High school civics
