    Nancy Pelosi Dares John Boehner To Take Impeachment Off The Table

    WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) may have said he has no plans to impeach President Barack Obama, but his Democratic counterpart, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) dared him Wednesday to go one better and declare that impeachment is "off the table" -- which is what she did when George W. Bush was president.

    "When I became Speaker and people clamored for the impeachment of the president, I said what I advise the speaker to say right now: Impeachment is off the table," Pelosi said in a House floor speech as members debated suing Obama. "This isn't about impeachment. That simple sentence will be a clear one. 'Impeachment is off the table.'"

    Pelosi noted that there are Republicans in Boehner's caucus who think impeachment is on the table. She suggested that Boehner, in spite of his denial on Tuesday, is also leaving the possibility open to satisfy the more extreme elements in his party, and pushing a lawsuit against the president just before the August recess to keep them satisfied.

    And if Boehner really believes there will be no impeachment, she emphasized, he should do what she did when she disappointed liberals who wanted to impeach Bush for misleading America into the Iraq war

    Can Boehner afford politically to tell the people in his caucus who believe that impeachment is still on the table that it is in fact not?

    Her balls are bigger than his are, that's for sure.

    I've heard shit about Pelosi for years now, apparently Republicans COMPLETELY forgot what she did for Bush, *That Boehner doesn't have the balls to do himself.*

    I would think his credibility would skyrocket and it may even foster a better relationship in the House.

    She's obviously been told to keep the threat of impeachment in the news because it serves them politically.

    By that logic it was never on the table in 1998.

    I am no fan of Plastic Nanci, HOWEVER...she is telling the truth. This time.

    I remember when she said "impeachment is off the table." (Almost her words, exactly.)

    HOWEVER...there were still House Democrats who continued to suggest it as a potential possibility...

    Impeachment legitimately becomes a question when a President has done something so egregious that his own party wants to be rid of him.

    That's really only ever been a possibility with Nixon. They told him the numbers, so no trial was necessary.

    Andrew Johnson's impeachment was a roll of the dice to see if the Senate votes would show up. Clinton's was a complete sideshow.

    But you have to recognize that a Nixon and Watergate-type situation is required, where there is no partisan debate to be had in answering the question, "Has the President done a terrible thing?"
