This GOP Candidate Thinks He Knows Why Obama Won’t Be Impeached

Barack Obama’s flagrant disregard for the limitations of his office has given rise to numerous grassroots campaigns to facilitate his impeachment. As his second term continues, however, supporters of such efforts see frustratingly little evidence that any legitimate action is being taken against him.

For one former talk show host and current U.S. Senate candidate, the reason is simple.

“Whether we like it or not, race is an issue,” said Republican Sam Clovis of Iowa.

During a recent interview with the Carroll Daily Times Herald, Clovis tackled a number of issues. He revealed that, while he believes there are plenty of people in power who think Obama should be impeached, his skin color acts as a natural deterrent to the process.

“I would say there are people in the House of Representatives right now that would very much like to take the opportunity to start the process” of impeachment, he explained. “And I think the reason that they’re not is because they’re concerned about the media.”

Echoing the sentiment of other conservative leaders, including Rush Limbaugh, he asserted that America would likely react negatively to its first black president facing impeachment.

“It’s not that what he has done would not rise to the level where it might be impeachable,” he continued. “I don’t think it’s a practical, pragmatic issue. And simply because I don’t think the nation is ready for it.”

He pointed out that the last impeachment process – against the previous Democrat president – was largely underwhelming.

“Now we have a situation where race is thrown into the cards as well,” he said.

Clovis discussed other topics during the interview, including his support for term limits.

“If you’re no longer concerned about incumbency and reelection,” he posited, “you have the opportunity then to really focus on what’s best for the nation and then what’s best for the state if you’re a U.S. senator.”

The candidate has promised that, if elected, he will serve no more than two terms in the Senate.

  1. the race issue is BS. If race were an issue, no blacks would get a day in court. Obama is not above the law….. Arrest him the same as any other of his kind…. the *iggers…….

  2. Ben Carson is a refutation of racism. Dr Carson is unmistakably Black, and highly more qualified to be President than obama for sure as well as any other demoncrat that is chosen to lead the demoncratic ticket.
    Dr Carson is a reminder that it is not the color of a mans skin, but the content of his character.

    I am sick to death of his stupid skin color. NO white guilt…judge a man by deed and character. Ob has CONSTANTLY FAILED THE TEST. We ARE ready to remove the parasite. If blacks don't like it then create groups to go out and explain how ob is literally enslaving them more so each and every day. Attacks Christians, destroyed the military, stealing all the air power from the national guards. Explain to them about the plot to starve them….GEORGIA GUIDESTONES. There are ways to expose ob the black hater…the white hater…the patriotic hater…the Christian hater…the employment hater…the man and woman marriage hater…on and on and on. Ob is NOT THEIR friend. So kick OUT the psychopath…enough is enough.

  7. Who really gives a crap about the color of Obama's skin?? I hate his white half equally with his black half as well! Obama is so ANTI-AMERICAN he should be wearing a sandwich board that says I hate & am going to destroy America & the American's! We have had enough evidence to pack him off to Leavenworth to await trial for all of his scandals, starting with him being from Kenya!
