The influx of immigrant children at the Southwest border is the final straw for Sarah Palin, apparently. In an op-ed published yesterday at Breitbart, the former Governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee opined that the time has come to impeach President Barack Obama:
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.”
President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. It’s not going to get better, and in fact irreparable harm can be done in this lame-duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and, mark my words, will next meddle in the U.S. Court System with appointments that will forever change the basic interpretation of our Constitution’s role in protecting our rights.
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.
The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.
The lawlessness displayed by President Obama is certainly deserving of a response by Republicans, who, by the way, have done enough talking on executive power to the point at which they’d damn well better hold the next GOP president to the same standard.
