Intentional provocation

Or at least testing the waters for one.

From The Monitor:
President Obama will go ahead with a “very significant” executive action on immigration after the summer – a move that may well trigger impeachment proceedings against him, senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer told reporters at a Monitor breakfast Friday.
Among the possibilities:

With Obama's popularity in decline, perhaps the Obama team believes it can stabilize, even galvanize, Democrat support by casting Obama into an impeachment battle.

On the other hand, Obama may offer up his biggest dare yet, counting on Republican leadership being too cowardly to counter. Why would anyone expect Republicans to vary from past patterns of complicity or surrender.
