Rep. Steve King of Iowa says Barack Obama will be impeached if he allows the United States to default on its debt. In a twitter message sent Monday, King said, STOP talking about default, he wrote on Twitter. The 1st dime of each $1 of revenue services debt. Obama would be impeached if he blocked debt payments. C C & B!
Sounds good to me.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Monday that President Barack Obama would be impeached if the nation falls into default.
STOP talking about default, he wrote on Twitter. The 1st dime of each $1 of revenue services debt. Obama would be impeached if he blocked debt payments. C C & B!
King is among the House Republicans who voted for the so-called Cut, Cap and Balance plan that would introduce a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget. The Senate last week dismissed the House bill.
King isnt the first Republican to suggest that Obama should be impeached over the debt crisis.
Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said earlier this month it would be an impeachable offense for Obama to raise the debt ceiling without congressional approval. In April, former Reagan administration official Bruce Fein drafted articles of impeachment in hopes that House Republicans would introduce them. And Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) in March said the president should be impeached for launching air attacks on Libya.
Obama isn’t going to be impeached for anything. We have one chance to get rid of him and it comes in November of 2012.
Impeach the One?
Look for him to get on national tv and plead that if the congress tries that, the entitlement (reparations) checks aren’t coming...
That will be the end of any impeachment talks..
" I'm LeBron, baby. I can play on this level.
I got some game."
I’m not so sure this is a smart thing to say. Could work the other way, too.
If/when impeachment charges against Obama are announce expect a sudden rise in ‘flash mob’ activities in urban area, lefty media to go into RACISM chants at warp speed and the military to be on full alert for possible domestic deployment.
Stay safe my friends and be sure to have a good stockpile(a month) of food and ammo.
Impeachment is not politically beneficial; let’s win the argument, and then the election.
What a load of horse poop.The republicans will probably have the votes to take him to a trial but the dem’s will Not vote to convict him anymore than they did with Clinton.
The Republicans need to stop playing games and get down to the serious issues.
Any port in a storm!
Well heck, lets get-er-done Stevie!
I like happy endings to long, drawn out, sad stories.
At last. And yes, if Obama unnecessarily lets the US default and dire consequences ensue, he will be impeached and removed from office. Unlike Clinton’s impeachment, with Obama, the offense will be directly related to job performance and will come at a time of general economic distress.
Please, please tell me that is a real quote of Obama’s?
You sure they aren’t quoting Steven King? Pure fiction.
I listened to King’s interview on 1040WHO this morning. Based on what I heard him say, I believe this tweet is being misinterpreted. When King says ‘stop talking about default’, he means stop talking about something that is NOT going to happen. He also is NOT suggesting that Obama ‘should’ be impeached over the debt crisis, as the article says. King states that Obama has a 14th-A. obligation to pay the debt payments (which only will take 10% of monthly revenue) and therefore Obama will pay that portion of our bills, no matter what. It is if he didn’t pay debt to the Chinese and other bond holders that Obama would then qualify for impeachment. He also stated that both sides are using a redefined definition of ‘default’ in an effort to force legislation into taking place.
But he needs to wake up if he thinks he would be convicted.
I thought O was a golfer!;)
obummer isnt going to be impeached for anything. - We have one chance to get rid of him and it comes in November of 2012.
We won't be rid of obummer in November 2012. Voter fraud, and illegal contributions will keep this usurper and his cabal in office forever.
I love Steve King, am always calling his office to thank him for his speeches on the floor of the house.
Please, don’t interrupt when hysteria is flying ... LOL
There’s a thought that will make you binge drink.
“Iowa Congressman Steve King says that if the country falls into default, President Obama could be impeached. Obama could stop that with three words: ‘President Joe Biden.’” Jay Leno
