    Constitutional Grounds for Impeachment

    Obama has sworn to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States” I do not believe he has. I think that there are grounds to impeach

    The following is from a report written and released by the Judiciary Committee in 1974 in the aftermath of the Watergate crisis.

    Washingtonpost.com Special Report: Documents From the Starr Referral

    The framers intended impeachment to be a constitutional safeguard of the public trust, the powers of government conferred upon the President and other civil officers, and the division of powers among the legislative, judicial and executive departments. The framers sought to avoid the creation of a too-powerful executive. “Attempts to subvert the Constitution."
    Each of the thirteen American impeachments involved charges of misconduct incompatible with the official position of the officeholder. This conduct falls into three broad categories:
    (1) Exceeding the constitutional bounds of the powers of the office in derogation of the powers of another branch of government;
    (2) Behaving in a manner grossly incompatible with the proper function and purpose of the office
    (3) Employing the power of the office for an improper purpose or gain.


    Obama Is Bypassing the Senate
    He is “Exceeding the Constitutional Bounds of the power…of another branch of government”

    Obama appointing Czars left and right is a violation of the Constitution. Presidents in the past have had Czars but they usually act as advisors and do not make policy. Obama has specifically appointed these people to make policy

    The Following is an article by Thomas Lifson on July 06, 2009: Constitution Apparently Declared Optional by Obama Administration

    American Thinker Blog: Constitution apparently declared optional by Obama administration

    With the clock running out on a new US-Russian arms treaty before the previous Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START, expires on December 5, a senior White House official said Sunday said that the difficulty of the task might mean temporarily bypassing the Senate's constitutional role in ratifying treaties by enforcing certain aspects of a new deal on an executive levels and a "provisional basis" until the Senate ratifies the treaty.


    Are there grounds to Impeach Obama or am I grasping at straws? Is this worth pursuing?


    Once the Republicans can clean house and gain control, I say "Yes We Can".

    The term "Czars" started under Reagan. They are people who are "experts" and give advice. Only a moronic, spam eating idiot would believe they make policy.

    Is it possible for you guys to be any more stupid? Yes, you could be drooling off in a corner some where.

    Oh wait, there is something from the side of your mouth. Juuuust there. Ok, got it. You can go back to your lies.

    Unless there is incredibly strong evidence that Obama committed treason or bribery, all an impeachment action will accomplish is to turn him into a martyr.

    It's not worth it.

    To the OP:

    Forget about impeachment. There is no point to it. Even if we find that he murdered someone, its going to be difficult to impeach him. And then Joe Biden will become President. And if we think Obama is incompetent...

    No the way to deal with the abuses of the current administration is to retake Congress and continue to speak out against it's abuses. If people keep running to impeachment if something an opposing government does something they dont like, we are going to have impeachment talk in every administration until the collapse of our Republic.
