Dick Morris: 'I Wouldn't Be Surprised If Obama Resigned'

President Barack Obama has been criticized for continuing to headline political fundraisers while the country is facing so many crises, but veteran political commentator Dick Morris says the president doesn't seem to care if it hurts his image.
"I think Obama has almost 'cashed-it-in' at far as that goes," Morris told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV Thursday.
"I think he's removed, distracted, aloof," he said.
"If I open the newspaper tomorrow and I learn that Obama resigned, I wouldn't be surprised," Morris added.
While the veteran political commentator thinks that Congress is far from pursuing impeachment of the president, he says that could change with enough evidence.
"It is entirely possible that as the evidence comes in from the IRS actions and if there is evidence of a presidential order to use the IRS to go after his political opponents in the Republican Party, and his ideological opponents in the pro-Israel movement, if there is evidence of that, then its possible impeachment will be pursued," Morris explained.
"The Democrats in the Senate would have a problem because they voted to impeach [former President Richard] Nixon over the exact same grounds," he said. "But we're far away from that."
As of now, Morris says, "We don't have the kind of evidence that's needed for impeachment. Everybody knows that."
"The only people who are talking impeachment are Obama — in an effort to paint the Republicans as nut jobs," he added.
Morris also appeared on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Thursday, telling hosts J.D. Hayworth and John Bachman that the president's ultimate goal is "to convert the United States into a one-party nation . . . where there is only one functioning party and a bunch of splintered opposition parties."
To reach his goal, Obama "is mobilizing all the powers of the federal government to achieve that."
Morris contends that he is doing that through his effort to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants so he can "bring as many Democratic voters into the country as he possibly can," by increasing the number of Americans who are on welfare, by increasing the union rolls "so that they can control their votes and their campaign contributions," by blocking the "filibuster for judicial confirmations . . . so that his executive actions can be approved," by eliminating the Electoral College, and by combating voter ID laws.
"Of course the IRS conduct is part and parcel of that," he added.
"These are all part and parcel of an effort to leave us his ongoing legacy — the death and destruction of the Republican Party." http://www.newsmax.com/newswidget/dick-morris-image-aloof/2014/07/31/id/586121/?promo_code=E700-1&utm_source=Front_Page_Mag&utm_medium=nmwidget&utm_campaign=widgetphase1
