Sarah Palin calls for Obama’s impeachment – Is she firing blanks?

Nice gun, but no bullets.

Trending at Memeorandum is an exclusive from Breibart: Sarah Palin calling for Barack Obama’s impeachment.

Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.”

Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold number of illegal immigrants will kick off their shoes and come on in, competing against Americans for our jobs and limited public services. There is no end in sight as our president prioritizes parties over doing the job he was hired by voters to do. Securing our borders is obviously fundamental here; it goes without saying that it is his job.

She’s right, of course, that it is an impeachable offense to refuse to secure the border, but I think that she would agree with me that it is only the latest of many. It’s particularly important to remember that a two-thirds majority vote of the Senate is required to remove the President if he is impeached by the House. Democrats control the Senate and Republicans control the House. Even if the House impeached him, there are not enough Senate votes to remove him.

Having said that, it’s clear that Sarah Palin is banking on Republicans taking control of the Senate. She is also using her political leverage to pressure candidates into supporting impeachment.

 

It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.

This is one of the reasons that Republicans can’t have nice things. This “or else” attitude is more than just drawing a line in the sand. It’s drawing a line in the sand when you don’t have any idea whether your gun is loaded or not. There is no guarantee that the Senate will turn Republican in the mid-terms. Far from it. It will be a hard-fought battle. Though Palin may be convinced that a majority of the people would back her in a call for impeachment, Senate elections are won state by state, and each state has its own priorities about which issues are most important. I tend to think “impeachment” is not at the top of the list in any of these elections.

I respect Sarah Palin, but I cannot respect the act of drawing a line in the sand without having any idea whether the gun has any bullets in it. She is starting a fight that may or may not be winnable, and is most likely not winnable. Meanwhile, she’s given an ultimatum that will likely alienate her from those of us who prefer to know that our gun is loaded before we draw a line in the sand. This is similar to what Ted Cruz did on defunding Obamacare. It damaged party unity and did not result in what he hoped for because, as predicted, America blamed Rebublicans instead of Democrats. Perhaps Cruz did it solely for fundraising. Is that what Sarah Palin is doing, too? Fundraising? It’s a legitimate question.

I’m tired of being called a traitor to conservatism for simply wanting to know if the gun has bullets or not before we go around threatening people. I am so done with that. Aren’t you?

Love you, Sarah, but this is not the way to win battles.
