Why can't we demand Obama's resignation?
June 30, 2010 | 13Sisters76

Posted on 06/30/2010 10:24:34 AM PDT by 13Sisters76

Please forgive the vanity post- I know you all hate them. But I am driven to ask this question- WHy cannot the people demand the resignation of this totallly incompetent man? And not just him- ALL his appointees and czars, AND his SC appointees, as well.

In 1973, the media, backed by a handful of leftist activists, drove Nixon from office- who had been elected in a landslide that the demonRATs can only dream of. The majority of the people did not want this to happen, but it happened anyway. Now it is the PEOPLE who want this man and his minions gone, but WE can't do what THEY did? I know, I know- there are petitions out there and I have signed a few. But I am talking a GROUNDSWELL- I'm talking a major concentrated effort by the people. Someone MUST know how to start this. If the lefties can do it, then certainly those with a brain can.

Isn't it time? Can't we DO this? This is OUR country and those with traitorous, anti-Constitutional plans can't stop us if this is what we demand. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm beginning to think we are running out of time.

Let’s see how November turns out. If it is bloody enough the Dems just may turn on Obambi and we will not have to lift a finger.

I don't understand why we don't demand this too!

Why can't our MILITARY require he step down since Obama is trampling on our Constitution? That alone is reason for removal. We are experiencing tyranny as well. Obama is becoming a dictator and we politely sit on our hands when we are not wringing them.

So WHY can't our MILITARY remove him?

Best to wait until after November. If the president were to step down (which Obama would never do anyway) the next in line would be the VP Biden (scary!), and after that the speaker of the house...Pelosi...until November if Americans through out enough democrats. Better to fix the downstream options before forcing the issue.

Nearly half the likely voters still support him. That’s why we can’t demand his resignation.

” don’t know about anyone else, but I’m beginning to think we are running out of time.”

I am beginning to see it that way as well.

If immigration “reform” happens, we will NEVER get rid of anti-Americans as our representatives. All the criminals and illegals will keep VOTING them in. This is WHY he wants to LEGALIZE ILLEGALS.

We can demand all we want. That doesn't mean anybody is going to listen to our demands. Impeachment with Pelosi as House Speaker will not happen.

As far as Nixon goes, he resigned from office. He could have (and probably should have) fought impeachment, like Billy Bob.

You’re suggesting a military coup? Can you not see how that is Constitutionally problematic? If any President is overthrown by military coup ... the Constitution itself will go with him.

Military dictatorships aren’t pretty.

The answer is simple, he has too many supporters. I always cringe when someone such as yourself says the people think, the people want, the people...when the truth is that the people are divided.

There is nothing more humiliating than demanding something from someone who has the power to refuse your demand , having them laugh at you, and then say now that you are married to her, she will never have to do that again .

You can “demand” anything you want. It will be just as effective as if the German people demanded Hitler resign or the Russians demand Stalin resign.

Why not demand Mickey Mouse marry Minnie?

There are constitutional means for removal. One is an election and the other is impeachment/trial.

When our military starts stepping in to remove an elected President, then we become no better than a Third World banana republic.

We ARE better than that!

There is breaking info on the corruption at the DOJ. Holder and Zero are two peas in a pod. He may pull a Nixon and take the long plane ride to Chi-town.

But, he is such a Narcissist it may take the Secret Service taking him out of the WH in a straightjacket.

NOV is going to set the course. If we can get a MAJOR tsunami driving the Dums out of Washington. Impeachment may be next for ZERO.

You can demand this. We have the right to petition for redress of grievances. We have the right to hold our breath until they do as they ought.

We have those rights. They just don’t mean much short of translation into votes, opposition, defiance or as a last resort - resistance.

Don’t ask the military to save the stupidass American people from itself. When the electorate is made up of idiots what do you expect to elect but bigger idiots?

Stop watching the crap the media puts out, bankrupt it and hope for a non-liar media to be created. But ours has been lying for 220 yrs since it started carrying water for Jefferson.

This one of the most naive threads yet to appear on FR.

A military coup, followed by a military dictatorship, is most assuredly not the answer to Obama.

Like it or not, he was elected President in 2008. So we're stuck with him until we get our chance to vote him out of office in 2012.

Like I've said before, this country deserves the government which it elects.

Very few things are certain in life.

Among those few things that are certain, is that the GOP does not have the courage or integrity to impeach the first black President of the United States.

It will never happen.

Never.

Absolutely correct about the Illegal Mexicans. Just look at their country. They will always vote for someone that claims that they will take care of them. They aren’t capable to stand up and take care of themselves.

Maybe you can also stamp your feet and hold your breath until you turn blue and cry with REAL tears!

Please refer to the U.S. Constitution. We have two options; vote him out in 2012 or impeach him.

Demanding our GOP representatives impeach him might be SLIGHTLY productive; other than that the Democrats have a majority in the House and Senate; so any impeachment and/or conviction hearings would be DOA.

There is no Constitutional provision for removing a President just because you really really really want him gone.

No, and I would not expect them to.

But ala the Democrats and the comparatively miniscule crimes of Richard Nixon, they can beat the drums and make enough noise to get something in motion.

I’m not a follow the leader type person, but elected officials are the ones with the bully pulpit not us.

I quite agree. The military is not a monolith either.

In the event of a real national crisis of internal discord, the military and law enforcement entities would fragment.

I think we would end up with something looking more like the Spanish Civil War, if it went violent, or the dissolution of the Soviet Union, if it did not (for the most part) go violent.

Why?

Because you’ve got not only core democrats that will support him no matter what he does, but a sizeable percentage of Americans still blissfully ignorant of just what kind of damage this despot has already done to this country and unconcerned as to what he may do in the future, that’s why.

Unfortunately, it’s gonna take a hell of a lot more of Obama’s destruction of the American way of life before these ignorant fools finally wake up.

I hate to inform you but only 6 percent of the people are telling America what to do and what laws are to be enacted.

The average American does not want all of these rules and regulations.

Of course there are those who want their kind of big government under Bush or big government under Obama.
Lindsey Graham a great example of a Republican Progressive.

This is why in the long run - when the debt based economy truly collapses with finality - I anticipate dissolution of the United States or civil war.

The competing philosophies are irreconcileable, and they will not stop tryin to dictate and steal and we will not submit. The collision or separation is inevitable - in the long run.
