Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, told a town hall during the weekend in Luling, Texas, that the House of Representatives has enough votes to impeach President Barack Obama, but he did not say what the impeachment charges would be.
Farenthold tried to explain to his supporters why impeaching the president ultimately will not work.
Farenthold said “Here’s the issue… you tie into a question I get a lot. ‘If everybody’s so unhappy with what the president’s done, why don’t you impeach him?’ I’ll give you a real frank answer about that. If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted … What message do we send to America if we impeach Obama and he gets away with what he’s impeached for, is found innocent? What do we say then is okay?”
Doug: I’m sorry… as much as I subscribe to the old adage “You can’t judge a book by looking at its cover,” when it comes to this guy? I think you can pretty much judge him just by looking at him.
