Top Obama Aide Just Admitted Obama Really Could Be Impeached

Following a pair of polls showing that a significant number of Americans support Barack Obama’s impeachment and removal from office, a high-ranking White House source expressed concern that such an effort will pick up steam. In a statement to reporters Friday, senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer explained that he no longer looks at impeachment as a GOP pipe dream.

“I saw a poll today that had a huge portion of the Republican Party base saying they supported impeaching the president,” he asserted.

While Pfeiffer acknowledged that many in D.C. would “laugh that off,” he took a much more realistic view of the fledgling effort among GOP leaders.

“I would not discount that possibility,” he said.

He went on to explain that House Speaker John Boehner’s plan to sue Obama for his excessive use of executive power will likely keep the issue at the forefront of many Americans’ minds.

“Speaker Boehner,” Pfeiffer said, “by going down the path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some point in the future.”

He concluded that Obama’s own policy initiatives could also make the possibility of impeachment more appealing to Republican lawmakers.

“I think that if the president enacted immigration reform, that would certainly up the likelihood that they would contemplate impeachment,” he reasoned.

In the end, impeachment is a notion that Pfeiffer said the administration takes “very seriously,” stating that he is against the pursuit of any such measure.

“But I think it would be foolish to discount the possibility that Republicans would at least consider going down that path,” he concluded.

    Although unsuccessful, Clinton was impeached for lying about the relatively insignificant transgression of engaging in extramarital sex in the Oval Office. Obama's crimes are much more serious: innumerable violations of the US Constitution that no white president would ever get away with. Isn't it a crime to systematically destroy the US? If the GOP wins the Senate in November, impeachment should be their first official act, before it's too late, if it isn't already.

    • I agree with most everything you said, but there is nothing "relatively insignificant" about extramarital sex! This says a lot about the character of a person and it not only destroys marriages and families, it destroys societies, so in reality the entire world we live in. According to scripture, "adultery" and "anything like unto it" is next to murder in seriousness.

  2. They are never going to impeach him and he knows this..That is why he has gotten away with everything for this long..It all goes back to fast and furious.That was as dirty a trick as anything a president could do and what happened..absolutely nothing..Nope no ones ever going to want to be tied in with impeaching the first "half " black president because that would ruin the rest of there carreer because after all thats racism right?.The left throws that around every chance they get just to remind everyone not to try anything to dethrone the greatest thing thats ever happened to this country ..yes thats sarcasm…But I for one dont feel sorry for this country.He sat in a church for two decades with a reverend that consistently ranted and preached for this country's destruction..he wined and dined with him and they both have the same anti american hate and people couldnt get to the voting booth fast enough to vote him in and most did this twice so you really do get what you pay for!

    Treason is the way to go less required to prove it Obama and his open affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood and their Hamas allies makes him treasonous for his "aid and comfort" it is well past time for the congress to act and remove this festering boil of illegal actions from office and restore the nations

  4. BikerGuy says:

    "impeachment at some point in the future"??????????? WHY NOT NOW????? How much more, how many more laws does the SOB racist Muslim Fascist have to break before someone arrests and prosecutes him and HOLDER? Why Holder? Because he has bee OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE for more than SIX YEARS!!

    • The Democratically controlled Senate won t support impeachment so it would just stir the pot before elections which probably isn t the strategic thing to do. If the GOP can take the Senate in November and retain the House, we have a good chance w impeachment however the process is so long obama would probably be out of office by the time it was decided.

    HUNG UNTIL PISSED ON!!!

  6. As much as I detest the moron in chief, I believe that anyone who thinks he might be impeached is living in a fantasy world

    • Edwardkoziol says:

      I agree with you,Slick Willy was impeached and the pervert came out smelling like a rose even though he raped girls.

  7. "What" are our House representatives waiting for?? The process itself takes a while so they to start the process now (before O ruins more of our country and takes away more of our freedoms)

  8. Edwardkoziol says:

    There would be nothing better to see this crummy president mpeached or better yet jailed for treason.Running America into the ground should be a treasonous act.I think an orange jump suit would look good on him and his partner in crime Eric Holder.

  9. According to some video talk show host like E T Williams and William Finley the only reason Obama will not impeached is because he is Black and the politicians in power do not have the guts to impeach him.

  10. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    Being arrogant, lawless, and clueless is not the way to run the greatest country on earth. Especially by a so called “Constitutional scholar” (we still haven’t seen those records after 6 years). Start in October with impeachment of holder. He is already in contempt of Congress (“you don’t want to go there, buddy”, what an uncouth thug), and that will be the catalyst to start the ball rolling which everyone is afraid to start. Remember the Lying King always forgets who does and who doesn't obey the rule of law that made America the greatest republic in the history of the world, and not a dictatorship that he and his crony clowns want.
    Please spend my tax money getting rid of this clown via suit or impeachment, but my money would be better spent buying the first bullet to put this dog down.
    Republicans will lose in November NOT due to threats of suits or impeachment, we will lose due to the massive voter fraud that will make our entire voting process worthless.

  11. dImpeachment will leave all of Obama's lawlwess activity o the books. Try him for crimes will remove all that Obama has done to harm America. His many crimes are so inviting. Ask him, "Are you a citizen of America?" Obama will not answer that question. If he lies tel him to prove he's a citizen and a Natural Born Citizen. He has no proof. Off to prison!.

  12. vc is fed up says:

    I want to sign the petition to impeach, but if I get another email newsletter I am going to go completely insane.
    Why not just have the petition, rather than a round about way to grab email addresses.

    The USPatriots Union/Veteran Defenders of America (www.patriotsunion.org) has top representatives planning on presenting their North American Law Center's fully drafted Articles of Impeachment to Allen West, Sarah Palin, and General Jerry Boykin who are all openly calling for impeachment now. You can view, and PLEASE DONATE TO and JOIN, THE USPU/VDA to support these efforts, planned over many months by an extremely brilliant, conservative, patriotic team of some of the top military and civilian legal minds in the country.

    Comments by my own personal Congressman, Blake Farenthold, and Congressman Steve Stockmen are that Republicans don't want to try impeachment now, prior to the election, because they, supposedly, don't want to strengthen Obama's efforts to rally his electoral base, and this would somehow enable him to do that. They imply that their strategy is to (in theory – possibly – maybe) impeach after the elections.

    Meanwhile "Rome burns!"

    We Can't WAIT for the elections and then possibly for some congressmen to wait for who knows how long after THAT to try impeachment. They work for US and we want it done RIGHT NOW!

  14. This is ridiculous!!! School yard BS. Please think about one thing, there are people that do things in this world and then there are people who think about doing things. Politics in a nutshell are 4 kids sitting a a marry-go round arguing about whos turn it is to push and Barack said screw this and started pushing……………come on. If people spent less time arguing about doing something and put some sort of action into place we can finally see what is going to happen and make adjustments in the future until it works. but if we never start then the rain comes and we have to leave recess without ever holding on to the bars, while starring at the clouds, laughing with the same individuals you were just arguing with and enjoying what could have been.

    Stop thinking about yesterday, swallow your pride…………don't be afraid to fail!

  15. barry soetoro should be impeached for a number of reasons. If I have to explain, I might as well tell it to a wall. He should be arrested for treason! If you can't see that he's trying to destroy Democracy, If some don't understand this, then they are ignorant. I dis-like barry soetoro not because of his color, but because of who he is! A communist muslim!!

  19. obama has committed TREASON against America he took an oath and broke it the democrats too

  20. The ways you overcome a "Crisisocracy," is use it throw it back at the creators, and overwhelm the corrupt system.
    You begin Impeachment proceedings, while bringing a law suit, with threat of arrest for contempt, all the time shutting down their money in the House of Rep. In fact there are enough violations to start a new impeachment process every week for 26 weeks, therefore they can experience what the American public has been subject to, one crisis after another.
    That is the only thing that will get their attention (period.)

  21. The signs of the end times are everywhere…

    As we witness such things as the spread of globalism, the building of a one-world church, the increase of wickedness, the breakdown of the traditional family, the destruction of that priceless bastion of liberty called America, the normalization of homosexuality, the callous murder of babies, the filthy pop culture, the breathtaking increase in governmental surveillance, we become fearful, uncertain, frustrated, angry, and discouraged, but this is because our minds and hearts are too focused on things of this world rather than things above. Too often we have the same short view that “conservative” unbelievers have rather than the long view that comes from the light of Bible prophecy…

    The devil is the god of this world, and his handiwork is evident everywhere, but he is not God and he is not in control of the times and the seasons.

    “Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding” (Dan. 2:20-21).

    We should stand in the confidence that the present evil is exceedingly temporary and will soon be cut down.
