Impeach Obama Robocall Campaign Launched By Conservative Group

2:59 pm - 11/15/2012

WASHINGTON -- The movement to impeach President Barack Obama has been launched, just days after he won a second term in the White House.

The Conservative Majority Fund, a conservative group known primarily for its birther conspiracy spreading, has launched a robocall campaign to gin up support for the president's impeachment.

The call, emailed to The Huffington Post by Shaun Dakin of StopPoliticalCalls.org, reads in part as follows:

"Our only recourse now is to move forward with the full impeachment of President Obama. We suspect that Obama is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and that there may be grounds for impeachment as is laid out in the constitution. Further, he may not even be a U.S. citizen because nobody, I mean no one, has seen an actual physical copy of his birth certificate. Impeachment is our only option. And Republicans are already considering Obama investigations. As the nation's most effective conservative group we are launching the official impeach Obama campaign."

Conservative Majority Fund is on the fringe of the conservative fringe. And their outlandish drives are often done with an eye towards exploiting people's dark political fears as a way to raise money. So it's not terribly surprising that they moved this quickly to start the drumbeats for the president's impeachment.

Among the "misdemeanors" they cite are the president's proposals to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay -- an idea supported by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) -- and to give "full amnesty" to undocumented immigrants. Indeed, a pathway to citizenship has, in recent days, been endorsed by McCain and other Republicans.

The group is casting a wide net with the calls. According to Dakin, people in Washington, Colorado, New Jersey and Virginia have so far reported receiving the call.

People are STILL questioning his birthplace????

layweed 16th-Nov-2012 02:19 am (UTC)
They'll never stop questioning it, even if they could take a time machine back to the date and place he was born and surprise, surprise, IT'S NOT KENYA??!?!

These fucking people.

I was thinking this too. I mean, it hurts a little every time I read the hateful stupidity that falls out of their mouths, but if they loose more followers every single time? I can live with it.

From my one Republican friend I have heard that Obama is going to be impeached over Benghazi before his second inauguration. I suppose this will be their new meme for a while.

So, sometimes I hate myself and listen to the conservative radio on my drive to class/ work. Today Hannity or whomever was talking about just that, because in Benghazi people died.

That is definitely very terrible, however, in the Iraq war which was launched on completely bullshit and false reasons MANY MANY FUCKTONS MORE PEOPLE DIED, a lot of them civilians! However no one seems keen on impeaching Bush/Cheney...

Terrible script writing.

I need every single WHAT THE FUCK.gif in the world rn. And even then, that wouldn't be enough to express all that I'm feeling about this.

Get. The fuck. OUT.

And here I was, thinking the stupidity would subside, once the election was over.

Boy was *I* wrong. *facepalm*
mickeym 16th-Nov-2012 02:11 am (UTC)
My brain just can't even process this level of stupid. I just--god. The Republicans are the epitome of 'poor loser'.
ragnor144 16th-Nov-2012 02:16 am (UTC)
I do not see how closing Gitmo is a misdemeanor. I can't think crazy like this.
chimbleysweep 16th-Nov-2012 02:21 am (UTC)
Oh, man, they are PANICKING over this election.
caffeine_buzz 16th-Nov-2012 02:21 am (UTC)
Seriously, Republicans, you lost. It's done. Get over it. (Also, they are aware that even if Obama was impeached that would just make Joe Biden president instead, right? If Obama is impeached, it will not magically make Mitt Romney the new president.)
layweed 16th-Nov-2012 02:51 am (UTC)
They'll just keep impeaching people until Mitt Romney becomes president. Or a Republican, at least.
bushy_brow 16th-Nov-2012 02:39 am (UTC)
I was wondering how long this would take...
kalikahuntress 16th-Nov-2012 03:12 am (UTC)
I don't think the American people deserve 4 more years of this shit. Give these people an island and let them wipe themselves out.
