Former Nixon White House speech writer and presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan says that Republicans should drop the talk of impeachment.

In a commentary piece on WND.com, the former speech writer for President Richard Nixon, presidential candidate and author stresses that Republicans would gain nothing and risk everything if they attempted to impeach the President Obama.

"For the GOP would gain nothing and risk everything if the people began to take seriously their threats to do to Barack Obama what Newt Gingrich's House did to Bill Clinton," Buchanan said. "Any Republican attempt at impeachment would go up against a stacked deck. And the GOP would be throwing away a winning hand for a losing one."
