Bachmann Claims Obama Close to ‘Dictatorship,’ Puts Impeachment on the Table
In the same interview where Michele Bachmann weighed in on Miley Cyrus spoofing her, the Republican congresswoman also had some tough words for President Obama, even going so far as to suggest impeachment should be on the table.
She told Rusty Humphries in a conference call sponsored by TeaParty.net on Tuesday that “we can have an impeachment hearing in the house” because she believes Obama “has committed impeachable offenses.” Removing Obama from office is off the table, though, because the Senate determines that action and the Democrats currently hold it.
Bachmann bashed Obama’s “thuggery,” and at another point said the fight over Obamacare isn’t just that, it’s a battle for “whether or not we will hold onto a constitutional republic.”
“I want the Tea Party to know they made a profound difference and what they’re fighting for is to see if we’re actually going to be a constitutional republic or if we’re going to be totally devolved into a dictatorship under somebody like Barack Obama.”
