DNC sends out email warning of Obama impeachment

Guilty conscience? More likely, just a device to open the pocketbooks of Democrat donors. But nevertheless it is quite a sign of the times that the Democratic National Committee is raising the specter of impeachment as a means of urging financial supporters to prevent the GOP from taking over the US Senate. Patrick Howley of the Daily Caller reports:

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out a paranoid email Saturday evening urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans can't impeach President Obama.

The email, subject line "Impeachment," was sent to Obama for America supporters, imploring them to contribute to the DNC's 2014 efforts. "What do these people all have in common?," the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct.

There is little doubt in my mind of two things:

1.      Obama has committed impeachable offenses. His knowing lie about keeping health care coverage materially enabled the passage of the Obamacare law on fraudulent grounds;

2.      There is no political upside for the GOP to sponsor impeachment legislation. Not only did the Clinton impeachment backfire, but Obama's status as the first black president (sorry, Bill Clinton but you don't qualify, Maya Angelou to the contrary notwithstanding) would make the political blowback intolerable.

That said, I do foresee one possible avenue to Obama's impeachment: if Democrats suffer crippling losses in 2014, and as the damage from Obamacare continues to mount with Democrats on the hook, and Obama vetoes repeal of Obamacare in 2015, then it is barely possible that Demos themselves would want to see him out of office, in order to prevent a complete disaster in 2016.

This is not very likely at all, I concede. But IF the IRS and Benghazi scandals continue to harm Dems and impede a Hillary poresidential campaign, then maybe a bit more possible.
