Cries of waaaaacism in 3… 2… 1.
A second House Republican has suggested impeaching President Barack Obama, saying “all options should be on the table” in an interview posted Wednesday.
“It’s just one of those times in our history,” said Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla.) said in an interview with the Florida political blog “The Shark Tank.” “We’re at this kind of breaking point.”
Radel was asked about Obama’s use of executive orders to bypass an often intractable Congress. The administration has identified 19 executive orders it may issue to crack down on gun violence. Most of the orders focus on stricter enforcement of existing laws or on improving communication between federal agencies and states.
“And to be bipartisan for a second, the thing that I would stress to Democrats and Republicans: Let’s say you’re a big fan of President Obama, and you support everything that he’s doing and you don’t mind these executive orders and you want an executive order to ban guns and take guns away, to raise the debt ceiling with unlimited amounts of spending or ignore laws,” said Radel, who replaced former Rep. Connie Mack in the House. “What I would say to Democrats who are friends with President Obama right now is, ask yourself, what are you going to do when a Republican gets in, and you may not agree with or like very much, and begins doing the same thing?”
