Add former Alaska governor Sarah Palin to an increasingly vocal assemblage of politicians calling for President Obama to be impeached. Palin joins John Boehner and his outspoken criticism of the president, who, according to Palin, has “many impeachable offenses,” and who acclaims that if Obama is “not impeachable than no one is.”
The “impeach Obama” movement is ramping up. One week after former judge and Fox News legal analyst Jeanine Pirro called for impeachment of Obama over such gross failings as the alleged cover-up of the Benghazi terrorist attack and the swap of five high-ranking Taliban detainees for the accused deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, Republican Rep. Lou Barletta jumped into the fray in mid June with strong words against the President.
On June 26, GOP Speaker John Boehner also announced that the House planned to file a lawsuit against the president, accusing Obama of “failing to carry out the laws of Congress” and for misusing Execute Orders to get his way. No such suit has been filed to date, though Republicans say they still plan on filing.
Today, the NY Daily News reported on Palin’s “biting editorial for conservative news site Breitbart.com,” in which the “former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate pointed to problems with immigration, the national debt and Obamacare in proclaiming her disdain for the President.”

“It’s time to impeach; 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,” Palin added.
The increased instability and violence in Iraq coupled with the humanitarian crisis along the U.S. and Mexican border have augmented the call for President Obama to either step down, or be removed via an impeachment vote.
Reports the Daily News:
Palin, who has called for Obama’s impeachment before, blames a plethora of national problems on the President in the stinging piece, including the government being “trillions of dollars in debts,” health care systems across the nation being “overrun,” and social services and schools in the U.S. being “stretched to the max.”
“Who’s looking out for the American workers? Who has their backs? Who fights for them,” asked Palin, whose last position as an elected official ended in 2009. “Have faith that average American workers — native-born and wonderful legal immigrants of all races, backgrounds, and political parties — do care because we’re the ones getting screwed as we’re forced to follow all our government’s rules while others are not required to do so.”
