Control of Congress the key, Walden says

While U.S. Rep. Greg Walden might agree that the country would be better off with a Republican in the White House, there is nothing to gain by working to impeach President Barack Obama.

That was Walden’s response to such a proposal made by Lynn Shumway of Baker City, a former longtime Bridgeport rancher, during a Saturday-morning town hall meeting at the Geiser Grand Hotel.

“The real problem is the president is out of control,” Shumway told Walden. “I can’t see what kind of  country we’re going to have if we don’t stop the drama, save America and impeach Obama.”

Walden noted that impeachment proceedings against Bill Clinton in 1999 lost the Republicans five seats in a mid-term election.

If a similar thing were to happen in this November’s election the results would be disastrous for the country from the Republican point of view, Walden said.

Instead of focusing on impeachment, Republicans should set their sights on gaining seats in the Democrat-controlled Senate,which currently claims 55 Democrats and 45 Republicans.
