In a commentary article published by Breitbart Tuesday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin offered a detailed defense for launching an impeachment investigation against Barack Obama. While a number of conservative activists have advocated such an initiative regarding any number of scandals that have plagued his administration, Palin’s argument hinged primarily on the America’s current immigration crisis.
She compared Obama’s “years of abuse” to a violent husband, noting that his failure to secure the border “is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ‘no mas.’”
The Tea Party favorite went on to join those who claim the influx of illegals into America over the past several months is a deliberate ploy.
“This is his fundamental transformation of America,” she wrote. “It’s the only promise he has kept.”
Palin chastised Obama’s “purposeful dereliction of duty,” which she said has enticed illegals who are now “competing against Americans for our jobs and limited public services.”
Compounding the problem is his administration’s unsustainable spending on healthcare and other issues, she asserted.
“So why has this issue been allowed to be turned upside down with our ‘leader’ creating such unsafe conditions,” Palin wrote, “while at the same time obstructing any economic recovery by creating more dependents than he allows producers?”
She answered that question by citing the desires of wealthy political benefactors who are removed from the direct problems caused by illegal immigration while still benefiting from the inexpensive labor it brings.
Average American workers, however, are no longer prepared to put up with the abuse, Palin concluded.
She said these hardworking citizens are “the ones getting screwed,” noting that they are “forced to follow all our government’s rules while others are not required to do so.”
As Obama continues in his lame duck session, she wrote, the current problems will only be exacerbated by an unaccountable president whose affinity for fiat rule is already well established.
“It’s time to impeach,” she wrote; “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.”
If Obama is not impeachable, she declared, “then no one is.”
