Sarah Palin is calling for the impeachment of President Obama for his handling of the border crisis, comparing America to a “battered wife.” Do you agree?

Yes. It seems Obama is intentionally allowing illegal immigrants to enter our country, which hampers job opportunities for U.S. citizens. Our new slogan should be, ’Bye, American!
No. Sarah Palin? Really? C’mon! The president is doing the best he can with a difficult situation. Let him finish out his term.
Not sure. I’m not a big fan of the president, but I don’t think Palin’s “battered wife” comment was appropriate.
