Posted on 07/29/2011 2:03:13 AM PDT by NoLibZone
The U.S congress is planning to file Articles of Impeachment against President Obama after he rejected another bipartisan plan debt plan to prevent the U.S from a credit default.
Earlier today republicans warned President Obama that impeachment proceedings would be brought against him if he causes the nation to default on its debt.
Congressman Steve King, the Republic member of the House of Representative from Iowa, wrote on his twitter account Monday that President Barack Obama would be impeached if the nation falls into default.
Politico reported afterward on King's threat and added that other members of congress were also ready to bring impeachment charges against Obama over the debt talks. Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) warned earlier this month it would be an impeachable offense and Bruce Fein has already drafted articles of impeachment for House republicans to introduce.
As the August 2nd deadline of a default on U.S. draws near, the major rating agencies have already warned that a credit rating downgrade may now be inevitable due to the political bickering within members of congress and with the President.

Impeach and Arrest.
Cool - I never thought it would come to this...but I’d rather have this fight now, then when the country is bankrupt.
I figured we’d just ‘compromise’ ourselves to insolvency and Third World status.
Arrest and deport.
Leave it alone. It only makes 0bambi look sane and reasonable. And if you thought the RATs were unhinged before, it will be nothing compared to their rage at another impeachment trial. Leave it for later.
PUBs need to concentrate on averting the crisis. Load up the Boehner plan with BBA, repeal DeathCare, front end load the cuts, drop the Super Congress idea. Then dare the Senate to kill it. Reid’s plan won’t be introduced in the House. It is a revenue bill and doesn’t originate in the House, per the Constitution.
Please tell me this is not satire nor someone pulling my leg.
He should have been impeached long ago. But rid of him now is better than nothing.
We all know ultimately it’s a matter of votes, and Congress could bust the Bamster down to dog catcher tomorrow with those votes, the question remains if enough members can be made to understand that Bam ain’t in their best self interest in the long term and is toxic damaged goods, even for “progressives”. A game of high stakes chess.
There are no plans to impeach.
King, IIRC, was talking about the attempt invoking of 14th amendment clause.
Regardless, this is balderdash.
I think King was talking about if he were to veto a bill passed by both houses of Congress.
“Leave it alone.”
Absolutely. Impeaching Clinton really did the GOP so much good, didn’t it?
Why don’t they get the deal done, wait for the dust to settle and then impeach him for the Fast and Furious debacle. That seems a lot easier. They can get rid of him and Holder at the same time.
Yeah....well I suppose beats looking in the mirror at the origin of the spending that causes such defaults....idjits.
Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory....leave it to the GOP to figure out another angle on that ONE!!!
It cleared the air on a number of issues and proved that Democrats are feral.
Now we know they would exonerate one of their own of anything, no matter what evidence might be produced. Ozzie Myers is dead and gone -- ditto Harrison Williams. A modern Democrat could get caught in broad daylight with a suitcase of cash, selling his office over the bleeding corpse of a 12-year-old girl, and the Dims would all rationalize it down to "it was only .......[fill in the blanks].">
“PUBs need to concentrate on averting the crisis. Load up the Boehner plan with BBA, repeal DeathCare, front end load the cuts, drop the Super Congress idea. Then dare the Senate to kill it.”
Don’t worry, the SCOTUS, CIA, FBI, NSA, etc. are fully aware 0’bs illegit presidentcy and have fully and happily supported this treason from the get go. Bet on it.
This “article” is a bunch of nonsense, as is typical from “Examiner.com” “journalists”.

Wait a minute. You’ve described, basically, Cut, Cap, and Balance. which still sitting there on the table in the Senate daring them to take a vote to kill it.
No way they'll support it. They won't even stand up and pass a bill to keep our country from defaulting. Every single democrat is still marching in lock step with the commie POS. Not ONE single rat statesman in the entire congress will do what is right for the country. They are all running scared of the poser.
“PUBs need to concentrate on averting the crisis.”
“The Crisis” is a manufactured one. The dems have been governing in crisis mode since Woodrow Wilson. So when we concentrate on averting the “crisis”, our actions are defensive, reactionary, and useless because they will just come up with another crisis for us.
I agree, no way this is a real news story. Hard to impeach someone for exercising their constitutional authority to veto anything (or give pardons for example). If the Congress is upset by the veto, just over ride it...
Boners bill funds 0care.
Cut spending. Cut spending. Cut spending.
Never happen ,,, too many panty weights in congress . There are already enough impeachable offenses committed by the Traitor in Chief to have him removed from office , all the while congress sits on their hands and just watch as he attempts to destroy our country as we know it . God help US because Congress won’t .
Bout dang time!!
You are probably right. My bad. But it is ridiculous to say Hussein will be impeached.
I worry that big “O” is going to raise the debt limit by
executive order! That would bring on impeachment proceedings.
>>Cut spending. Cut spending. Cut spending.<<
I told both my Communist Senators that when they start cutting whole departments, I’ll know that they are serious. Until then, all these “savings” are a cruel joke on everybody.
That is not my quote you cited.
And, yes, I was in support of CC&B. Apparently what has supposedly been agreed to today is nothing of the sort. Unfortunately.
Sorry, that was NHhockeymom’s original quote and I meant to send it to multiple recipients as I was thinking you has agreed with her original post. Hadn’t got my second cup of coffee down yet.
Yes, and I guess we have to see how the show plays out in the House, then the insufferable speech at the signing ceremony where we hear “it’s not exactly what I wanted, but I have taken care of you dependent poor American people...blah,blah,blah
unless, of course somebody throws a monkey wrench in the deal and they put us through the old government shutdown routine. Guess that still could happen.
As Alice said: It just gets curiouser and curiouser.
