Boehner: 'I disagree' with Palin, Ernst to impeach Obama

But some Republicans have called for more, calling the president's use of executive orders an impeachable offense.

"Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president," Palin wrote in an op-ed for Breitbart. "His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, 'no mas.'"
I was kind of surprised that would ever post a "news story" from a mainstream media source such as United Press International. I am totally flabbergasted by UPI mentioning Joni Ernst in this article. Ernst, the Republican candidate for the U. S. Senate, could have been taken completely out of context.  Who knows? 
And video surfaced this week of Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst at a forum in January, calling for "repercussions" for using executive orders.

"He is continually using executive order, he is making appointments without authority," she said. "So yes, absolutely he is overstepping his bounds. And I do think that, yes, he should face those repercussions. Now, whether that's removal from office, whether that's impeachment..."
I quoted the above from the UPI story, exactly as it was written. I have to believe the way UPI wrote that, there is more to the story! But then, if Joni Ernst really DOES want impeachment, I have no problem with that.

But wait.  Joni Ernst has nothing to do with what Sarah Palin wrote in her editorial, which is why I have to ask some questions about this story:
  • Why did fall for the liberal media trick of pitting Republicans against each other?
  • Why did UPI even include anything about Joni Ernst in this story, and especially in the headline? Is it possible that they took Joni's comments out of context in order to cram it in to this story?  Did strong liberal groups influence UPI's reporting on this story because they are afraid Joni Ernst would win Tom Harkin's Senate seat here in Iowa?
While you ponder on those questions, here is the video of Sarah Palin's segment on Hannity on Tuesday night. (You can also see the video in the story I have linked to below.)

Boehner: 'I disagree' with Palin, Ernst to impeach Obama
By United Press International

Speaker of the House
John Boehner (R-OH)
WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John Boehner squashed new rumblings from some corners of his party to impeach President Obama over his executive actions, including his immigration policies.

Answering a question from reporters to respond to a statement from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Ohio Republican simply said, "I disagree."

Boehner has moved forward with plans to introduce legislation in the House to sue Obama over what he says is an abuse of his executive power under the Constitution, but said his goal was to get the president to enforce laws as passed by Congress, not remove him from office.

"This is not about impeachment, this is about faithfully executing the laws of this country," he said.
