According to reports, some House Republicans are making moves to impeach President Obama. Some of them are accusing him of exceeding the limits of his authority.
They claim this's because he delayed portions of his health care reform law. They voiced similar concerns about other executive orders when it comes to immigration and the economy. Obama's senior advisor said the GOP may be more eager to act on the threat of impeachment than many realize.
"I think a lot of people in this town laugh that off. I would not discount that possibility,," said Dan Pfeiffer, White House senior adviser.
Alaska's former governor, Sarah Palin, is one of the latest to support the suggestion. In addition to the growing support to impeach him, there's a planned lawsuit coming his way from House Speaker John Boehner.
"I do not like Obama's politics whatsoever. I haven't supported much of anything he's done," said George Todd, a Bridgeport resident.
Democrats have mostly approached the threat with a "bring it on" attitude. Most believe the proceedings would backfire against the right and energize progressive voters ahead of the midterm elections.
"I like the man and think his intentions are good. I don't think he's done anything that bad," said Stephen Woody, a Fairview resident.
5 News found many of you that disagree with the president's politics, but while gathering this report, we couldn't find anyone who went as far to say he should be impeached.
