La. Gov. Bobby Jindal: Talk of Obama impeachment is misguided

Bobby Jindal
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said he disagrees with many of President Obama’s policies, notably Obamacare, but it’s not time to talk about kicking the president out of the White House through the impeachment process.

“I reject that kind of talk. The reality is I didn’t like it when the left spent eight years trying to delegitimize President Bush, call into question his election,” the Republican governor told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I don’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.”

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 “a personal friend,” but he warned that the scandals dogging the White House have put the president “perilously close” to impeachment.

“I think those are serious things, but we’re in serious times,” Mr. Coburn said. “I don’t have the legal background to know if that rises to ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ but I think you’re getting perilously close.”

    Jindal speaks from fear–a good Conservative speaks from an American Patriot’s heart. Sometimes it is necessary to turn up your collar, turn your back to the storm and do all that is right to protect your Liberty and Freedom. Jindal would never have crossed the Delaware to secure a footing for our Independence ; he does not understand how important audacity and daring are to the political and military process.

    I AGREE WITH MR. JINDAL.
    Obammy should have been kicked out five and a half years ago when he refused to prove his eligability for the presidency.

  • El Loco says:

    What? Turnabout is not fair play? The things Obama has done are far worse than those done by Clinton and he was impeached. Is Jindal becoming a Dem suck-up RINO?

  • Florida Jim says:

    At what point in a failed Presidency do we say enough is enough? We have a perpetual campaign running, on our dime, everywhere to tout his positions and stir up racial disharmony Making everything a racial issue or blaming Republicans for everything with the media ignoring Obama’s daily lies. Since Obama is dishonest, the media is dishonest and the Progressives are dishonest it appears impeachment is all that is left.

  • Sue Gorney-Welch says:

    He does not follow the law!!!!!! Is not that enough for impeachment?!!!!!

  • His is a faulty evaluation. Obama was not eligible to serve as President. He should have never been elected. He is a usurper and should be removed. Does anybody in DC read the Constitution? Worse he has the most corrupt adminstration ever to serve.

    As to Impeachable offenses, take your pick.

    Something that I know right know is that I am very glad Gov Jindahl is not eligible either. It is time to end this Farce! Obey the Constitution or resign from your responcibility.

    Unfortunately Gov. Jindal is misguided, not about NOT impeaching Obama, but that the Muslim usurper has to be put under arrest for wire fraud and brought up on high crimes and treason. Go to http://WWW.DEVVY.COM and read about the article on “We Should Not Impeach Obama” BECAUSE, impeachment laws are for a ligetament sitting president. Obama is an illegal usurper born in Kenya. That’s a fact, I know it to be true. If you use impeachment laws, than you have acknowledge and ligetamized him as such. You arrest him on wire fraud for asking/receiving campaign funds via email, etc., because he campaigned and told the public that he was a US citizen, and he is not. Bragging that he is Black and knowingly aware that you are lying while accepting money is fraud (obama is an Arab-Bedouin and only 6.25% black. This is a Federal Offense with many years of prison time. Than our country can continue to bring him up on high crimes and treason. Even terrorist activity, aiding the terrorist groups in this country and in the Middle East.

  • Howard Cannon says:

    Sounds like Bobby Jindal is joining Chris Christie, John McCain, Lindsay Graham,John Boehner and a few other RINOs
    in the “SURPRISE, I’M NOT REALLY A CONSERVATIVE” movement.
    Send the bum home.

  • Dan Talbot says:

    Jindal is too timid, obviously he doesn’t want to be ex-communicated from the good old boy club. When will we see elected officials sprout some gonads?

  • TexRancher says:

    Bobby, what are you saying? That it’s OK for Obama to violate his oath of office, lie to us, get AMERICANS killed and refuse to help them, refuse to secure our borders against ILLEGAL INVADERS including terrorists, circumvent the Constitution and change and write his own laws, and cover for the law breaking of his AG who illegally exported weapons from this country, illegally imported weapons to another country without authorization from that country, his refusal to enforce our legally enacted laws?
    After this comment from you, where does our rule of law fall?

  • Calvin Struchen says:

    IT,S A SHAME THAT THIS PRESIDENT HAS COMMITTED MORE CRIMES AGAINST THE CONSTITRUTION OF THE U.S.A.,THAN ANY OTHER OF PRESIDENTS COMBINED. YET EVERY BODY IN CONGRESS IS AFRIAD TO IMPEACH HIM.WHEN WILL CONGRESS(ALL 535 MEMBERS)CLEAN UP THE MESS THEY CREATED? WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND BETTER ACTION!!!! DO THE JOB YOU WERE ELECTED TO DO.

    1. Newton Rules says:

      What crimes? I keep hearing from groups that the President has committed crimes against the Constitution, but I never see specific charges, charges that define actual crimes. I know that there are many people to have a true hatred for the President, but what crimes, what laws has he broken? Why don’t the people who want him impeached stand up in front of America and call out the specific charges? Groups have been complaining about him for 5 years, but have not been able to provide a single law that Mr. Obama has broken. Hating him is not grounds for impeachment.

      One more thing, Mr. Obama has provides a valid birth certificate that shows that he was born in the United States of America. If you’re still hung up on that issue, you’re not thinking clearly.

    I totally agree that OBAMA should be impeached NOW!
