President Obama is the first President in history trying to start rumors about his own impeachment. Why? So that Democrats can have a different narrative going into the November elections. Rep. Stockman was the first person I heard articulate this well, and it turns out he’s exactly right.
“He wants us to impeach him now, before the midterm election because his senior advisors believe that is the only chance the Democratic Party has to avoid a major electoral defeat. Evidently Obama believes impeachment could motivate the Democratic Party base to come out and vote.”
Despite the fact that there are no Articles of Impeachment even being considered in Congress, Democrats are already fundraising on the false narrative of impeachment.
from Washington Times:
In a bid to bring in more campaign cash, House Democrats sent out a plea to donors to pitch in more funds to defend President Obama from a seemingly-imminent impeachment.
In an email notice, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee solicited immediate donations citing House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against Mr. Obama.
“The White House announced yesterday that Boehner’s lawsuit could lead to the impeachment of President Obama,” the email read.
“Boehner’s lawsuit against the President is more than a political stunt. It’s a full on attack on President Obama’s agenda, his legitimacy, and the Democratic process that elected him twice.”
The DCCC asked donors to reach into their pockets to smash their 100,000 donation goal saying, “We’ve had enough of it.”

"Had enough of it"? Enough of what? Literally, nothing is happening on the impeachment front because Republicans know that they need a 2/3 majority in the Senate for conviction. That’s not stopping the White House from trying to advance this ridiculous narrative (with the media’s help, of course!):
I think you get the picture. The White House WANTS this narrative to move forward so that they have something to talk about heading into the midterm elections other than Obama’s failure.
The sad thing is…Obama deserves impeachment and it appears he knows it.
