    Impeach Obama, says Michael Burgess - Reid J. Epstein - POLITICO.com

    So according to Burgess, we need to impeach President Obama in order to stop him from pushing his agenda. :eusa_think:

    I wonder how many people here would agree. Time for a poll I think.

    I know I certainly don't and think it's ridiculous.

    I think he should be impeached for so many different reasons, such as OBAMACARE which trashes the Constitution.. Deliberating ignoring the Appeals Court concerning drilling..etc

    It's a sad thing, but unfortunately you can't impeach Obama just because he's a complete dumb ass. If so, they would have impeached Jimmy Carter.

    The question isn’t ‘should’ but ‘can,’ and the answer is they can not. As noted in the other recent thread on the subject, Obama’s committed no crimes. And to do so anyway as some sort of ‘protest’ or to ‘stop Obama’ with no chance of conviction in the Senate would show the House to be as irresponsible and capricious as it actually is.

    GWB would be of higher priority. And given Bush admitted to authorizing the crime of torture, had it been confirmed at the time he was president, would indeed be grounds for impeachment.

    Are you kidding me, we don't have the time nor the money to waste on some dumb shit at this time. You can vote him out of office faster, why not do that?

    We don't impeach presidents because we don't like their agenda.

    How exactly does "Obamacare" trash the Constitution?

    Fill in your post with actual clauses.

    Okay?

    you know this gig, sallow. the wingnuts have a fringe interpretation of the 10th amendment that basically declares the entire federal government unconstitutional. the only thing that scares me is this supreme court is almost as fringe as they are, and may someday actually uphold this interpretation.
