How many people of any political stripe seriously believe that there's a snowball's chance in hell of impeaching President Obama this late into his second term even if the raving maniacs on the right did come up with a legitimate reason for doing it? Yeah, that's what I thought.

That didn't stop Fox's "Judge" Andrew Napolitano from throwing some red meat to their viewers on this Tuesday's Your World with Neil Cavuto, and pretending that President Obama is in "big trouble" now that a Federal appeals court has sided with Texas on his executive action on immigration.

Here's more from Fox's blog: Judge Nap Reacts to Federal Court Blocking Obama's Immigration Plan:

The White House responded to the setback by stating that the president has exclusive authority to enforce immigration laws and can adjust policies to fix a "broken immigration system."

"I cannot tell you how rare this is in American history for a succession of federal judges to stop the president of the United States from doing what he says he has the authority to do," Judge Andrew Napolitano said on "Your World." "But we saw it happen today."

"The president is breaking the law. That's what two judges said in the United States Court of Appeals," Judge Napolitano said, adding that he thinks the White House will have to appeal this to the Supreme Court, where the initial appeal would be in front of Judge Antonin Scalia.

"It would be up to the president if he wants to dispatch his lawyers there," Judge Napolitano said. "This does not look good for him."

So of course he thinks the remedy is to impeach him. Napolitano's been a broken record on this. It's not the first time he's called for impeachment over President Obama's immigration policy. He's been doing that for months on end now. He also called to have him impeached over the Bergdahl release last year. And in 2013, he floated the idea of impeachment over sequester spending cuts.

Everything old is new again on Faux "news."
