Sarah Palin's new claim to fame is that she calls for the Impeachment of Barack Obama every time she is in front of a camera. She really, really wants the GOP to Impeach President Obama. This is a woman who couldn't get elected on a national level, and who resigned as Governor of Alaska before her term ended. So it's easy for her to judge a man who, against all the odds, won the Presidency twice, the second time in a near-landslide.
Obama has made fun of this:
You hear some of them. Sue him! Impeach him! Really? Really? For what? I mean think about that — you're going to use taxpayer money to sue me for doing my job, while you don't do your job? Huh.

DENVER — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin urged the grassroots Saturday to support her call for the impeachment of President Obama, imploring conservatives to push the idea with Congress.
“There’s only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors, and it’s impeachment,” said Ms. Palin. “It’s the I word. You don’t need some fancy law degree hanging on your wall there to know laws are not being enforced today. Illegal immigrants all over the world also know that.”
Ms. Palin drew headlines two weeks ago when she called for the president’s impeachment, citing the flood of border-crossing children as the last straw, but House Speaker John Boehner quickly put the kibosh on the proposal, saying, “I disagree.”
. . . “Okay, politicians, what are you going to do about it?” said Ms. Palin. “Let’s call their bluff. I’m calling their bluff because we need a little less talk and a lot more action.”

“I’m hearing some argue for ‘cautious inaction.’ They’re terming it. They’re saying ‘Well Obama’s policies expose his failures anyway, so why rock the boat.’ But that argument, it misses the point. Folks he is radically changing the balance of power. It’s setting a wicked dangerous precedent. With his pen and his phone, hes abrogating his presidential authority. Making himself a ruler not a President.”
. . . “This president’s forgotten man is we the people, and we the people know that our best days are still ahead because we know that God shed his grace. He’s given us our freedom to do what’s right. God doesn’t drive parked cars. I think he expects us to get up and take action in order to defend these freedoms that are God given. I think it’s an affront to God to let this go on because he gave us these freedoms. We’re not going to let someone, a person, a party take them from us. We’re not going to dethrone God and substitute him with someone who wants to play God.”
Sarah Palin: Impeachment Threat Making Obama 'Nervous': On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said t... http://t.co/uvVngQhUbb— Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) July 20, 2014
Earlier in July, Palin called for impeachment on Breitbart:
Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.”
. . . It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.
The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.
To which Comedian Jon Stewart
It appears that ex-Governor Palin has finally finished mangling the English language and has moved on to making Spanish incomprehensible. She's like a serial killer of language -- or whatever the opposite of a Rosetta Stone is.
Eric Holder, Obama's Attorney General, had this to say:
She wasn't a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She's an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.
