Is impeachment the right course?

I have to wonder about the calls for impeachment of President Obama. As much as I believe he has committed offenses that warrant impeachment, I also wonder if this is a wrong move. I read that Pat Buchanan thinks it would be a mistake. That to impeach the President would just give added fodder to the democrats to use against the Republicans. Sarah Palin on the other hand cites the scandals that surround this President as being proof that he has committed numerous offenses that fit the bill and that it should be done now.

I have to admit, this President has shown a propensity for ignorance, in that, he continues to tell us that he knew nothing about the atrocity at Benghazi, the IRS and the many other scandals swirling around him. Yet there is mounting evidence that Democratic Senators were applying pressure on the IRS, and that much of the IRS targeting was directed from Washington DC not Cincinnati. Of course we also know that the White House and State Department people were also instrumental in propagating the lies about what the Benghazi attack was. Yet the President does not admit to knowing anything, until he read about it in the Newspapers. That of course goes for the deaths of Veterans at VA hospitals around the country.

The problem with writing Bills of Impeachment against the President, are quite literally an exercise in futility. The Senate will never agree to convict the President. Remember Bill Clinton was embroiled in an impeachment bill from the house, and some of the democrats even admitted that he was guilty, but refused to vote to convict. The same would happen today if there were a Bill of Impeachment filed against Obama.

What do you think about this thing? Should the House of Representatives go through the gyrations to bring a bill of impeachment? I do believe it would be an exercise in futility for the house to do this. Join the conversation
