Conservatives Consider Impeachment If They Lose To Obama
Grover Norquist of Americans For Tax Reform told National Journal that if Obama is re-elected and refuses to re-authorize the Bush-era tax cuts for millionaires, “Obama can sit there and let all the tax [cuts] lapse, and then the Republicans will have enough votes in the Senate in 2014 to impeach.”
Norquist is infamous for his anti-tax pledge, which has been signed by most Republicans and a few Democrats, which forces them to oppose any and all tax increases or face a primary opponent funded by Norquist and his shadowy multi-millionaire donors.
In an interview with Bill Moyers on PBS, Norquist professed his desire to shrink the government “down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.”
Documents from the U.S. Senate Indian Affairs Committee alleged that Norquist’s group served as a conduit for funds generated by the clients of convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
After Republicans lost the 1996 presidential election, they pursued the impeachment of President Bill Clinton over his extramarital affair with intern Monica Lewinsky. While the House of Representatives passed articles of impeachment, the Senate did not.
Clinton left office in 2000 with most voters approving of the job he had done. [National Journal]
