A second Republican congressman is suggesting that impeachment should be an  option as President Barack Obama takes executive action to enact gun control  measures.

In an interview with Florida’s “The Shark Tank,” Florida Republican Trey  Radel addressed Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman’s statement  that he might seek impeachment if Obama goes forward with executive action to  bring about gun control measures.

“All options should be on the table,” Radel responded.

    Why only 2? Where’s the Tea Party guys. His little speech today was an admission of defeat. The white flag. They better get him on the next executive order which will be the debt ceiling.

    I love the way he surround himself with kids today after Jay (I Blow Barry) Carney stood at the podium of bull shit chastising the NRA for bringing Barry’s kids into the mix in their latest commercial.

    It’s only taken them nearly four years to get the stones to seriously consider impeachment. They must be afraid of the race riots which they believe will be whipped up by any serious consideration of impeachment proceedings. That and the fact that the professional GOP establishment weenies don’t want to rock the boat too much because their hands are nearly as dirty as the dems. You can bet if the GOP started throwing stones, the knives would come out very quickly on the dems side and then we would see what a cesspool the whole rotten DC establishment has become. No, far better to just let things slide slowly into the crapper.

    Impeachment is for a legitimate POTUS only…& not for Bari Soetero, Bari Malik Shabazz, Barry Soebarkrah, Barack Hussein Obama II, Steve Dunham, Harrison J. Bounel or whoever he is.

    Notice how he admitted theres some things he can’t do without congress, after people were saying its an impeachable offense.

    He knows he’s pushing the envelope through propoganda, divide and fear, but he still wasn’t about to use executive order on guns when the word impeachment is tossed around.

    He knows people aren’t backing down on this and a civil war would be blood on his hands. His problem is his opponents are the ones with arms, and once he gives the order to use the gestapo to start killing or confiscating…it’s officially on, let alone people will see his real intentions.

    No, I believe he’ll keep pushing the envelope and do whatever he can to disarm first before he considers his dictatorship, whether it be through doctors, neighbors, trumped up charges, whatever he can do to make it so that a legal gunowning citizen is now a lawbreaker.
    That way when they do storm the castle, he’ll pull out the documents to show to the media about “this person wasn’t supposed to be owning a gun”. He wants and needs legal justification that holds up to the law in our kangaroo courts, so he’ll pass laws to ensure its all legal.
    Every past dictator has known full well, you can’t complete a takeover without removing the armed threat first.

    Unfortunately and sadly I doubt impeachment will go very far. Too many in office love their party and their power more than they love their country or the future of their children.
