Will Obama be impeached/disqualified before his term is up?
today | yt

Posted on 01/21/2010 10:56:37 AM PST by rjp2005

In just one year, he's already acknowledging massive failures on the part of the Democrats. Just imagine what things will be like 1 year from now, with an inflamed war taking place surrounding Israel, Iran and the Saudis, and unemployment going even further, and conservatives gaining power back to some degree. If he's 48-49% now, in a year he'll be in the low 30's!

Maybe but my bet is Hillary will be resigning before 2010 is over to run a primary campaign against the worse POTUS in the history of the US.

He might resign and attribute it to America not being ready for a black president. After all it couldn’t be anything he did!

Nope, but his will have a nervous breakdown and exit the White House in one of those special jackets that buttons up the back.

DON'T MAKE HIM LOOK LIKE A VICTIM!

That's the worst thing that can be done.

The best thing to do is to emphasize just how much he and his progressive followers are injuring the country. Anything that follows, impeachment, etc, can then be shown to be self-defense.

“He might resign and attribute it to America not being ready for a black president. After all it couldn’t be anything he did!”

But, he is a clean, well spoken light skinned African with no trace of a Negro dialect...unless, of course, he is in a position where he wants to know “can a brotha get some love from his peeps?”

If low approval ratings were enough to get you impeached, then Bush would have been gone a long time before his dismal failure of a second term was up. The Constitution says, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Never.

Americans don’t like his policies, nor do they like the results, but they still like him.

TWO AND OUT

We should elect Congressmen and Senators who promise that once they select a Conservative Republican Speaker of the House, their first order of business will be to impeach Obama and Biden thus elevating said speaker to the Presidency.

It is my understanding that in a "speech" a moment ago, the Teleprompter has declared that jobs are now the number one priority!!!

Ah...excuse me.....I meant the great chill giver, the one and only islamic, muslim-in-chief did.

The all powerful chameleon is changing once again....but the all knowing and all powerful Teleprompter goes on and on and on....

Just wait till the Terrorists Trials get going in New York City later this year.

That should really secure Dem votes.

unless he experience something supernatural, he's going to be crushed by pressure from both sides. He will cave in completely.

I hope he gets it together.

Low approval ratings and policy disagreements aren't grounds for impeachment - and impeachment should be a last resort, not a political weapon. If you want to see the same independents who are now angry with the Democrats become infuriated with the Republicans, bog down the government in a politically-driven impeachment. For now, I'm just happy that Obama and the Democrats can forget about passing any of their big-ticket proposals on health-care, cap-and-trade, etc. In the current political environment, the main items on Obama's agenda are impossible.

I’ve been pushing the birth issue for a year and a half or more. It’s obvious to me that Obama is hiding virtually everything about himself, and that what he’s hiding is probably that he is an illegal alien, not a citizen at all.

Whether or not congress and the courts will DO anything about that problem remains to be seen. But at the very least, keeping the issue alive has helped a great deal to weaken Obama’s legitimacy and his popularity. Quite a few people now suspect that he’s a Kenyan, a Communist, and a Muslim to boot, and that he does not have any more love for our country than all those Muslim terrorists and Communist dictators out there whom he loves so much.

In other words, anything we can do to weaken Obama and his plans to destroy our country should be pursued with all the energy we have. If we can get his approval numbers down to 30% or less, if we can throw out a raft of Dem Congressmen and Senators, and even some of the worst RINOs, then the birth issue will have done its job. And I don’t think the people will allow themselves to be fooled the same way twice—by the insider politicians of both parties.

The Constitution says, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Indeed. But when you have a Congress equally guilty of treason, and bribery etc... you are not going to see enforcement.

And we saw that with Clinton's impeachment. Of course, I always believed the treason charge was the one that should have been used. The betrayals of US National Security to China were palpably undeniable treason.

Obama will not be impeached. He will lose in 2012 though, I work in the hotel industry and had a conversation with a affluent Boston liberal and asked the person about the Mass special senatorial election. We talked and the person said that that person was voting for "change" by absentee ballot.

AS Bob Dylan stated, "The times they are a changin"

It is highly unlikely for many reasons.

Unless there is overwhelming proof that Obama is not a natural born citizen, by even the most liberal interpretation of the clause, I simply cannot see the SCOTUS unseating a POTUS. Even if it were proven he was born in Kenya, I could see the SCOTUS refusing to remove him, saying that his mother's citizenship makes him a NBC (I'm not saying I agree, I just think the court might rule that way). From a practical standpoint, I think proof that BOTH his parents were foreign nationals and that he was born outside the U.S., would be needed.

As for impeachment, even if a solid case could be proved, it would require a majority of the House and 67 Senators to vote for impeachment. I just don't see the votes being there, even after the 2010 midterms.

Also, I'm not sure what grounds there are. You can't impeach a POTUS simply for being a fool, with horrible ideas, no matter how dangerous those ideas are. Unless he commits some sort of crime, and leaves behind clear proof of it, we'll have to wait until November 2012 to fire him. And “crime”, does not include signing unconstitutional legislation. The same congress that would be his jury would be his accomplices in that, so there would never be an impeachment on those grounds, even if it were warranted.

In a word NO. He has not committed a crime....yet. He may have lied, but he did not perjure himself ( a felony) like Clinton.

I would enjoy seeing the wookie and her mother have to leave in shame out the back entrance to the White House. But I don’t think it will happen.

I simply cannot see the SCOTUS unseating a POTUS.

The Supreme Court does not have the power to unseat a sitting president. According to the Constitution, it requires a majority of the House and two thirds of the Senate.
