Mike Huckabee Proves Impeachment Talk Is Conservative Scam Bait

Wasn't it just last week that John Boehner declared all the impeachment talk to be a 'Democrat party scam'? Why yes, I think it was.

Huckajesus just blew that whole thing up with his radio appearance Monday on Steve Deace's radio show. Right Wing Watch:

Mike Huckabee appeared on Monday’s edition of Iowa-based Steve Deace’s radio talk show, where he said President Obama “absolutely” deserves to be impeached but cautioned that Republicans should not pursue impeachment at this time since the GOP doesn’t have the votes to convict him in the Senate.

“There’s no doubt that he has done plenty of things worthy of impeachment,” Huckabee said.

When impeachment is nothing other than a cynical political ploy that really means "get rid of the black guy who we don't like" I suppose his point about worthiness could be conceded.

People like Huckabee and the rest of the right-wing extremists who drop remarks like this like bombs into right wing radio do nothing more than cheapen the act of impeachment. They've been doing it for 40 years since Nixon faced impeachment. Of course, Nixon deserved to face impeachment, criminal charges, and a lifelong prison sentence. He was a living example of why impeachment exists.

Huckabee and his cohorts can keep working the base on the whole impeachment thing, but the fact is that they cannot sustain themselves on anger and opposition. At some point they are going to have to spend some time explaining what their ideas are.

Wanna bet the Huckster sent out a fundraising ask after that interview?
