Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said he disagrees with many of President Obamaâ€™s policies, notably Obamacare, but itâ€™s not time to talk about kicking the president out of the White House through the impeachment process.
â€œI reject that kind of talk. The reality is I didnâ€™t like it when the left spent eight years trying to delegitimize President Bush, call into question his election,â€ the Republican governor told NBCâ€™s â€œMeet the Press.â€ â€œI donâ€™t think we should be doing that for President Obama. The reality is, one of the great things about this country is we do have a peaceful transfer of power.â€
Mr. Jindal was responding to long-shot talk of drawing up impeachment charges against Mr. Obama, an idea that has surfaced among conservative lawmakers and with constituents at town hall meetings involving the likes of Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican.
At a meeting Wednesday in Muskogee, Mr. Coburn called Mr. Obama â€œa personal friend,â€ but he warned that the scandals dogging the White House have put the president â€œperilously closeâ€ to impeachment.
â€œI think those are serious things, but weâ€™re in serious times,â€ Mr. Coburn said. â€œI donâ€™t have the legal background to know if that rises to â€˜high crimes and misdemeanors,â€™ but I think youâ€™re getting perilously close.â€
