The Republican-led House of Representatives would impeach President Obama “tomorrow” if it came to a vote, a GOP congressman revealed during a town hall over the weekend. “I’ll give you a real frank answer about that,” Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) told constituents on Saturday on the topic of potentially impeaching Obama for high crimes and misdemeanors. “If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it,” Farenthold announced.
... In a sign of just how far to the right Republicans like Farenthold, who was first elected in the Tea Party wave of 2010, have swung, he didn’t even feel the need to give a reason precisely why President Obama should be impeached. Indeed, readers could be forgiven for assuming that House Republicans would go along with any rationale, so long as the end result was impeaching Obama.
