Idea of impeaching Obama becomes more and more popular in US

Sarah Palin (R), the former governor of Alaska, calls to impeach US President Barack Obama, accusing him of a deliberate "dereliction of duty." "Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, "no mas"," Palin wrote in an article posted on Breitbart.com website.

She claims that Obama deliberately neglected the situation at the US-Mexican border, as the Governor of Texas Rick Perry (R) suspected earlier. "Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept," Palin wrote.

Earlier Obama asked Congress to provide $3.7 billion to improve security measures at the border as well as to provide for the children who already crossed the border and are now in the care of the health ministry and social security services.

Last year Palin already called to impeach Obama over the debt crisis, claiming that he inflicted irreparable damage upon the country.

"It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment. The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored," Palin added.

However, Senator John McCain (R) preferred to distance himself from his former comrade regarding the impeachment issue. "Am I proposing that the president be impeached? No," he said.

Many Americans could be heard saying that an impeachment is necessary as millions believe that the country is moving in the wrong direction and the political elite simply ignores their opinions. A billboard promoting the idea of impeaching Obama appeared in Wisconsin back in 2010. Also in 2010, former congressman Tom Tancredo (R) wrote an article for the Washington Times calling for Obama to resign. And just recently the South Dakota Republican Party demanded to impeach Obama for violating "his oath of office in numerous ways."
