Mark Levin: Of course Obama should be impeached

Via Real Clear Politics. Mark Levin rips the Republican Establishment over their lack of a backbone in standing up to Obama’s deliberate and repeated lawlessness.  I understand the difficult politics of impeachment but,  at some point, shouldn’t the constitution and rule of law trump partisan politics? If the legislative branch is content to hand their constitutional power over to the executive branch without so much as a whimper, why do they even exist? Boehner’s risible lawsuit is a bad joke and will accomplish nothing. The constitution provides a remedy for an imperial executive acting outside the constitutional bounds of his office, and it’s called impeachment. The Supreme Court will almost certainly dismiss Boehner’s lawsuit as the stunt that it is. Eventually. In the meantime, Obama will continue to run roughshod over the constitution he’s sworn to uphold with zero pushback from the legislative branch whose power is being usurped. The establishment’s acquiescence to Obama’s unconstitutional power grab and cavalier attitude toward the integrity of our constitutional system is typified by Charles Krauthammer’s remarks yesterday on FNC’s Special Report:

If he were to do something like legalize say half which is what’s been talked about — huge numbers of illegal immigrants — to do it by executive order which would be clearly lawless and would be the biggest domestic overreach of a president in memory, it would be an impeachable offense. I would be 100% against impeachment because it’s political suicide but it really would be the basis for that.

So, yes, Obama’s actions (or proposed actions) violate the constitution and are impeachable offenses but we can’t talk about that in polite company and anyone who does is a kook or worse. Get it?

    the GOPe are just a bunch of cowards…….it won’t be political suicide, it would rally the base and maybe just maybe they’d vote for the republican in 2016! If they are too scared to impeach then DEFUND or do something…..who wants to come out and vote for wimps? Hence the loss of the last two elections!

    We are under 100 days to the election. We need the Senate to approve also to make sure he is removed from office. I am willing to wait. I want him out physically, not symbolically.

      Won’t happen…You need 67 votes in the Senate to convict and remove from office….

    krauthammer just like any milquetoast, lacking good moral compass of a pundit can’t hear themselves talking on both sides of the mouth and so is more of a burden to the conservative cause and held in utter contempt and derision privately by his opponents on the other aisle publicly rooting for him.
