Predicts backlash over coming 'amnesty' orders, 1 in 3 Americans support removal

There’s more talk about impeachment – only this time it’s coming from the White House.

According to a Reuters report Friday, Dan Pfeiffer, a top adviser for Barack Obama, says the president’s planned executive orders on immigration will make Republicans in Congress unhappy. Very unhappy.

The comments came at a breakfast organized by the Christian Science Monitor.

“The president acting on immigration reform will certainly up the likelihood that they would contemplate impeachment,” the report quoted Pfeiffer saying.

He said it would be “foolish” to overlook the possibility.

Pfeiffer said he can see Republicans moving toward impeachment, according to the report, “in retaliation for the immigration orders he is expected to unveil by the end of the summer.”

Pfeiffer’s remarks came a day after a House panel took the first step in filing a lawsuit against Obama over his use of executive power. It clears the way for the full House of Representatives to vote on the measure before heading out of town next week for summer recess.

The House Rules Committee voted 7-4 Thursday along party lines to authorize the lawsuit.

Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., applauded the panel’s move Friday.

“We’re very concerned about the lawlessness of the administration,” Ryan said on MSNBC.

Ryan dismissed suggestions the lawsuit is not a productive way for Congress to spend its time.

“We can walk and chew gum at the same time. We can juggle a lot of bills. We’re working on border security, foreign policy, appropriations and many things at one time. So it’s not as if this displaces action on other items. … I will vote for it,” he said.

  1. Obama Sued: House Authorizes Lawsuit Against President With 225-201 Vote

    Argentina defaults; Russia, Ukraine, Libya, Israel, Gaza, Iraq all in a state of (hot or otherwise) war, the worst Ebola epidemic in the history of Africa, and now Obama is getting sued.

    MT: @AP_Politics MORE: House authorizes GOP-led plan to sue Obama alleging he exceeded constitutional powers

    — The Associated Press (@AP) July 30, 2014

    And from Reuters:

    The Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday cleared the way for the launch of a lawsuit accusing President Barack Obama of overstepping his authority in carrying out his landmark healthcare reform law.

    The 225-201 vote, along party lines, to authorize the suit will allow House lawyers to draft legal documents over a five-week summer recess starting on Friday.

    It cements the action as a lightning rod for months of bitter campaign rhetoric from both Republicans and Democrats ahead of November elections that will determine the political control of Congress next year.

    The suit is expected to claim that Obama exceeded his executive authority in making unilateral changes to the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

    And then this:

    Pres Obama intends to thumb his nose at the House lawsuit bill by signing another Executive Order tomorrow on federal contractors.

    “He is not going to back away from his efforts to use his authority to solve problems & help American families,” says WH official of POTUS.

    If this doesn’t send the S&P to new record highs tomorrow, the Fed better find another market to rig.

    Incidentally, for those confused, this is nothing but more theater. If the GOP, i.e., the orange folding lawnchair, really wanted to go after Obama, they would have impeached.

    Meanwhile, somewhere in the bowels of the Kremlin, Putin is cackling like a madman.
