The Hill reports that for all the bluster and GOP cries for impeachment, Speaker John Boehner (R-Cheetos) isn’t going to go through with it. Boenher said on Wednesday that he didn’t support the calls for President Obama’s impeachment, and when asked about Sarah Palin’s comments that Obama should be impeached as a result of the child immigrants, stated simply, “I disagree.”
“I disagree,” was also his response when asked about the House GOP, who have also urged for the impeachment process.
Boehner is not alone. Many Republicans are wary of impeachment calls, worried that they could hand the Democrats a compelling issue that might help the Dems regain their Senate Majority in the upcoming elections. As a case in point, the impeachment process of Bill Clinton in 1998 blew up in the GOP’s face, helping the Democrats pick up seats in the House against the odds.
The House is expected to vote later this month on the lawsuit against Obama, because of his “overuse” of executive orders. Boehner said that he was going to consider including Obama’s action on immigration into the House GOP Lawsuit.
Palin mocked the lawsuit in a Monday interview on FOX, saying, “You don’t bring a lawsuit to a gunfight. There is no place for lawyers on the front line. Where are the front lines in America? They are our borders.”
Meanwhile, the rest of us mock the lawsuit because it’s suing the president for doing what presidents do. Not that Palin would, or will, ever understand that.

Boehner’s happy to harrass Obama and subject him to frivolous law suits, but even he stops short of impeachment:
