Mike Huckabee Says President Obama Can Be Impeached Once Republicans Win The Senate

obama frown

While on a radio show in Iowa, Mike Huckabee said that President Obama deserves impeachment and that Republicans can impeach him once they have control of the Senate.

Huckabee was asked by host Steve Deace if the president has done anything worthy of being impeached. Huckabee answered —  ”Absolutely. There’s no doubt that the president has done plenty of things worthy of impeachment. Now the fact is we don’t have the Senate, so if you impeached him in the House and it went to trial in the Senate, it would never even get to the Senate floor….From a governmental standpoint, you’re not going to see it accomplished with this Senate. But I think it’s an important argument to make that there are a number of things this president has done in the overuse of the executive power, his complete ignoring of the law, even his own law.

With each day, Republicans are getting bolder. They are starting not even to try to hide their real plan if they win control of the Senate. Boehner’s lawsuit fits the plan of whipping up a high crime that they can use to impeach the president. House Republicans gave Boehner the expanded power to sue the president for anything beyond Obamacare. The Republican rhetoric has gone beyond calling for impeachment to now discussing how they will impeach Obama.

Republicans like Mike Huckabee are acting like a Republican takeover of the Senate is a done deal, when the reality is that the 2014 election is looking more like a coin flip. There is a very good possibility that Republicans don’t win control of the Senate. If Democrats keep control, there will be no impeachment.

It is interesting that according to Huckabee, President Obama has done plenty of things worthy of impeachment, but he couldn’t name anything specific outside of tired talking points about Obamacare.

In the big picture, Republicans view impeachment as their path back to the White House.

They are hoping to use impeachment to derail the looming freight train that is Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential candidacy. Republicans think that by impeaching Obama they will tarnish Hillary Clinton and open the door for their return to the White House. What is more likely to happen is that the attempted impeachment of Obama would backfire, and sweep Clinton and a Democratic controlled Congress into power.

Huckabee’s comments make it clear that the election this November isn’t just about Congress. What may be at stake is the future of Barack Obama’s presidency.

  1. First off Mikey our and YOUR POTUS has done not a single thing wrong and THAT is you and your ilk’s problem..you have nothing to bitch about.

  2. I know I may be slow but can someone please point out where the 67 votes will come from? I know baggers are stupid but I do believe they can count to 67.

  3. If these assholes impeach one of the best POTUS I would just like to say, if its war you repigs want its war you’ll get. I for one are sick of ALL their crap. And I don’t see how you can even win a restroom key in November, unless they can put this nation in a drug induced COMA. What the hell do you idiots eat and drink that makes you so damn stupid ? Oh and by the way not even one of you are calling for trials in the Hague for your war criminal Gods Bush and Cheney

  4. The Prez will be impeached.

    He will survive removal because the votes will not be there.

    Expect conspiracy theories to be pimped and hustled.

  5. I am so sick of GOP threats. If they are not threatening the American people by taking things away, they are threatening the President with lawsuits and impeachment, and whatever else pops into their brainless heads. These people are not only SICK, they are bullies. Rich, arrogant, dishonest, bigoted, racist vindictive bullies. I hope they lose BIG in November. I am to the point where I have not watched the news on TV for months, and may be not even reading current events. That is how rancid all of this “news” has become.

  6. Let the baggers proceed and I hope the President uses executive orders to egg the stupid along the path of their destruction

  7. Mike Huckabee is not an elected official any more than Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are. What they want is irrelevant.

    Clyburn is taking a book from the Republicans and is telling the Democratic base do not give them control of the House, the Rethugs will vote to impeach President Obama!

    This is outrageous! Now you can add being sued and impeached while black! Here is the link! Please pass it on. Our base needs to know how urgent it is to vote in three months time.http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/jim-clyburn-republicans-will-impeach-obama

  8. GOP “news” reads like a raunchy tabloid. There is nothing inspiring about them whatsoever. They are toxic.

  9. Huckabee, says Pres. Obama has done plenty of things that he can be impeached for, but he doesn’t mention one item that he can be impeached on.

    Republicans like to say its Obama and Democrats who talk about impeachment, but Huckabee. Rep. S. King and the rest of the Tea Party members of Congress keep proving they can’t wait to try and impeach Pres. Obama.

    I am hopeful this impeachment talk and the antics of the do nothing Republicans in Congress, blows up in their faces come November.

  10. The reason they can’t count to 67 is that it is part of basic Math which is science which any good Christian Tea Billy Rethugliklan does not believe exsist . Plus the only part of the Constitution they have read is the 2nd amendment and the part that says African Americans are only 3/5 a person.

  11. —–It is interesting that according to Huckabee, President Obama has done plenty of things worthy of impeachment, but he couldn’t name anything specific outside of tired talking points about Obamacare.—-

    ‘Ol corn-pone Huckabee thinks that Obama has done plenty of things worthy of impeachement—-and Can’t name ONE! He is a disingenuous fool! What crimes have Obama commited? What treasonous acts? What did he steal? THESE ARE THE GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT. Yet the yokels who ought to know better (they always tout their knowledge of the Constitution) are screaming their heads of for Impeachment. What a disgrace and a farce this is becoming. As I said Huckabee is a fool. He should know better, but chooses to jump on the Impeachment bandwagon to appease his frothing at the mouth pitch-fork mob (base). You know them, the ones who will indict Obama for Not asking permission to go on vacation.

  12. As djchefron mentioned above, it takes 677 votes to convict in the Senate, and the GOP knows that they will never get those votes, but there is a method to their madness.

    Consider, number one, they are obviously afraid they won’t be able to hold onto the House. Number two, they are seeing that their ability to retake the Senate is rapidly diminishing. Number three, they basically know most of their base doesn’t realize that taking back the Senate and keeping the House still won’t result in impeachment or conviction.

    They want to keep their base energized and voting because they see the Dems becoming more energized. They think that if they can get their base to believe they will impeach if they keep the House and take the Senate then at least they will hold onto the House and may take the Senate.

    Our job is to make sure their strategy doesn’t work.

  13. Let’s assume they actually win the senate. At best, maybe 61 or 62 seats. That is 5 or 6 votes short of impeachment. Yes, they will completely shut down government for two years, but come 2016 they will be lucky to have more than a handful of reps in either house of Congress.

    So go ahead. Play that impeachment card and see what it buys you. Impeachment of Obama = death of the GOP.

  14. Your comment is awaiting moderation.

  15. Sadly, a lot of people will vote against their own best interests because their hatred for President Obama is greater than what their common sense tells them is right.

  16. Huckabee is delusional, suing Obama won’t hurt Hilary should she decide to run. If anything, it will anger Democrats to the point they will vote.

    It will, however, hurt Republicans for years to come. President Obama has done nothing to be impeached except being powerful while black.

    The current Conservatives have allowed Taliban/Al Queada/ISIS/Hamas type to gain control and they are destroying the party.

  17. First of Huckabee is nothing but an ex-governor. That’s it! I have no idea why the media keeps people like Huckabee, Romney and Palin in the news. They are idiots and their opinion means no more than the average joe on the street.

  18. Obama has done worse than be powerful while black.

    Every single day, he’s shown himself to be smarter than they are. To the racist GOP base, that’s a hanging offense.

  19. Name one thing President Obama has done that would warrant impeachment… Nada, nothing, zilch. Dems need to vote in mass as a major protest against these Republicans. I get so angry just thinking about these idiots. Count me an old, angry, white person.

  20. When asked to elaborate on the specific constitutional offenses that have been committed by the POTUS, the Huckster could only shrug and blurt out,
    “Stuff … lots of stuff”. /s/

  21. The crime Obama commited was being elected twice…POTUS.

    Democrates need to get out the vote so Republicans can try to impeach Hillary Clinton – her crime will be the same except, she will be the first woman elected POTUS.

  22. Huckabee is a religious zealot and extremist. As Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “Extremists are always wrong.”

    When they are hypocritical religious extremists, they are not just wrong, they are evil.

  23. Someone should ask this huckleberry about the case of his dog torturer son, in particular the time when his son came upon a poor stray dog, he and his buddies hung the dog from a tree and had lots of fun while they stoned it to death.
    Huckleberry pulled strings to get his son out of a prison sentence and keep it quiet, but I think it can still be found online.
    Good christian man eh?

  24. Why oh why are a lot of the commenters acting as though it is a done deal that we lose the senate?
    We cannot let this happen, folks get to work!

  25. Huckabee is another disgraceful Evangelical who peddles discontent ideas to a low thinking audience. He is not a true minister. Money is his #1 Master. Chubby Cheeks Hickabee is far from a man of peace. He his a greedy old goat. The money makes him physically comfortable while peddling junk ideas. Such a patriot! Advise people to elect your party to Impeach our President. The right wingers think they are the only ones who have a voice in this country. They are wrong and we must show them that in November we will Vote against their shameful,greedy candidates.

  26. When Huck was going for the Rethug Presidential nomination he gave a speech and said, “If the Constitution doesn’t agree with the Bible, we’ll just have to change the Constitution.” That was my “NO WAY!” moment with Mr. Huckster.

  27. The problem with yelling impeachment is that there must be serious grounds — so far, they don’t even have the Oral in the Oval that was used with Clinton to waste taxpayer money and allow the lazy bums to avoid doing the Nation’s Business.

    The book, “Death Over Life: Secret of Revelation: A Prophecy of America’s Destruction” (which is FREE in eBook format via Amazon Prime and Kindle Unlimited, and otherwise available in print form http://www.amazon.com/Death-Over-Life-Revelation-Destruction/dp/1497427169) provides a secular approach to the Evangelical Hagee “Four Blood Moons” prediction of disaster for America in 2015 … as a direct product of the 2014 election results.
    Of course, if Washington does fall, then the Evangelical Tea Party supporters will cheer about the coming messiah and Ted Cruz’s dad will again be proclaiming his son the anointed one (as he did when Ted was elected to Senate).
