Impeachment is the only procedural mechanism in the American system of government that can be used to remove from office a president who has willfully abused his executive power under the Constitution.
Technically there are other extraordinary measures that can be taken, but these measures cannot fully address in an expeditious manner the present crisis of executive abuse of power by this president.
In my view the problem we have today is not whether the case can be made for the impeachment of the president, but rather the frivolous arguments made by many commentators and political partisans that prevent us from moving forward. Here are some of these arguments.

Impeachment cannot apply.
Your King gave up his citizenship as an adolescent."
Ummm ... I saw how the votes went with Clinton and the Democrats in the Senate ... :-) ...
umm..did you call that clinton farce a “trial” ?
Being that the republs love having the someone they can blame things on when convenient, they will not impeach. If possibly perhaps after the elections and they win majority, then there may be a chance.
Until then, don’t even think about it.
It would be the exact same farce ... you make a good point.
only if trent lott was still in charge.
Impeach America’s first black Messiah? Fat chance.
Besides congress not having the balls, the Marxist media would go ballistic.
The weasels won't want to risk losing their ill-gotten gains so still no chance of impeachment of the historic Obama. Unfortunately they are totally worthless.
Crap.. Oballah will be yodeling from the Whitehouse...
GOPe isnt really interested in being the majority party in congress.
they do better fundraising when they are in the minority.
something to think about.
What needs to happen is for the military to classify Obama as an enemy combatant, detain him, and send him to Gitmo.
With Obama unable to discharge the duties of the office, we’d go down the line of succession until we came to somebody who was not ALSO an enemy combatant giving aid to Obama and the communist-Islamist alliance he colluded with to destroy America from within.
I’m not sure how far down the line of succession we’d have to go before we came to somebody who isn’t an enemy combatant who gave aid, comfort, and cover to Obama who everybody knew was ineligible and an enemy combatant.
The only way I could see Boehner rightfuly getting off a treason charge is if he can prove that he was threatened, with America herself taken hostage - as, for instance, if Obama’s handlers said the communist-Islamist alliance would make another run on the bank to collapse the US economy if Boehner didn’t do as he was told.
This will fire up Obama's only remaining loyal constituency- the black vote. By firing them up, the Dems are hoping to lessen some of the damage this November.
LOL ... are you talking about Egypt and Libya -or- the USA?
I keep reminding people that we are a Constitutional Republic, but the answer I get back sometimes is that ... “We must kill the Constitution in order to save it!” ... :-) ...
If they failed to remove him from office, they would be voted out of office the next election.
I believe the NDAA gives the US military the authority to detain even US citizens they classify as “belligerents” - so how much MORE the authority to detain a foreigner (unless Obama can prove he naturalized as a US citizen at some point) who actually qualifies as an enemy combatant through objective measures such as:
1. funding terrorists
2. arming terrorists
3. training terrorists
4. giving terrorists safe haven
5. propagandizing/recruiting for terrorists
6. belonging in a terrorist organization
7. securing the release of terrorists
8. falsifying government records to make terrorists appear to not be terrorists, to keep them from being arrested/detained/brought to justice
9. aiding in terrorists’ infiltration into the country by thwarting the nation’s due diligence
See #13. I believe it would be lawful under the NDAA.
The Democrats, President and Eric Holder know that Obama can do anything he wants and give everyone a middle finger as long as Dems control Senate. Boehner is going to file a lawsuit, so what, what court of law will take it? What Prosecutor will take it? How long will it all take? This will result in nothing.
News Media is still covering for this President and the Dems- they could rip the heart of a child on a stage on TV and I swear people would still vote and protect Obama and the Democrats.
Then we have the GOP-E who throws one of their own under the bus in favor of old coot who resorts to KKK and Democratic tactics to win at all costs.
Vote them out? Well we seen how that turned out with Cochran. Now that opens the door and gave a nod to other Repubs to play dirty and win at any cost.
Impeachment? No way as long as Dems control Senate.
President can’t even be arrested until he is impeached and convicted.
We have missing emails, crashed hard drives, and the supporters of Obama and Dems are able to spin this as false scandals.
Honestly- there really is not anything we can do to stop this maniac and his troops before the next Election- they are going to throw everything out there, by pass Congress, more executive orders all on their own.
What would people do if Obama wrote an executive order that said as of today, all guns will be seized, guns are banned, you will be thrown in prison or shot on the spot if you have a gun?
What would we do today if Obama declared no borders anymore and calls America North America like they are planning to do?
The Military heads he has ensured to follow his orders will do so, the Union Police will follow his orders, Sheriiffs too for the most part.
I am sorry- but what I saw that went down in Mississippi just shows that we will not recover from this; we can vote for the Democrat to teach the GOP a lesson and that will cost us the Senate perhaps...meaning Obama and Dems can continue to do even more damage until next Presidential election...and then if a Dem is running- we can expect more fraudulent votes and we can expect the GOP to run a Rhino who throws the election to the Dems..
The chances of us getting a decent Republican in the WH is slim to none.
Is it even worth anymore to vote?
Pardon, but my .02:
What needs to happen is everyone stop reacting to all the intentional BS being tossed about by both sides and focus on getting RATs OUT of the Senate and more (mostly) friendly a$$es in those chairs to facilitate “doing what needs to be done”.
Congress is the ONLY branch of government we have half a chance at controlling every few years.
Personally, I’m sick and tired of all the manipulation (mostly from Progs/RATs, but now we see from the GOP as well...Mississippi).
