Skip to comments.Coburn: Obama a 'Friend,' But His Actions Nearing Grounds for Impeachment
Posted on 08/22/2013 4:26:36 PM PDT by kristinn
Sen. Tom Coburn became the latest Republican lawmaker to link President Barack Obama to potential grounds for impeachment during a town hall Wednesday.
The Oklahoma Republican who also said Obama was a "personal friend" responded to a question from a constituent by asserting that the president's policies were approaching a legal standard for impeachment.
Without using specifics, Coburn cited "intended violation of the law" by Obama's administration, as well as general incompetence of some of his appointees.
"I don't have the legal background to know if that rises to high crimes and misdemeanors but I think they're getting perilously close," Coburn said, according to a YouTube video posted Thursday.

Sweet talkin’ Tom.
Maybe with just one term, they won't be able to steal enough to set themselves up for life.
I'm pretty much in my "Had enough of the bastards mood" today.
He just strengthens the enemies resolve because they know they can now get away with anything. Coburn would be advised to either accuse him outright or keep his mouth shut. No middle ground.
Never accuse a President of almost breaking the law or committing impeachable offenses. “We don’t want to think. We want to know”.
That is every day
Bingo. My friends aren’t trying to destroy the US. If they were, they wouldn’t be my friends.
That is the hard part. We need a bill of particulars. Ranting and venting is fun/academic/good exercise but the list MUST be specific. I’m ready to support anyone with the goods but I’m not sending a dime to another bunch of posers who can’t get it done.
I sent a bunch of money to Klayman and his happy band of Clintoon investigators but they couldn’t get it done. If Coburn claims he’s working on it then he must be pressured to pick up the pace. Invalidating Obamuzzie’s signature would be a cheap way to get rid of all his phoney krap but the list must be specific.
Why worry because Coburn says “Constitutional Convention”?
First, he doesn’t know the correct terminology, his town hall meeting constituent mentioned Mark Levin’s book about a convention to AMEND the Constitution according to the process laid out in the Constitution itself.
That is not a “Constitutional Convention”, it’s an “amend the Constitution convention”, two entirely different things.
Second, Coburn has absolutely nothing to say about what happens. This would be a convention of STATES and completely bypasses Washington DC/the Federal Government.
In fact, when the constituent asked Coburn for his suggestion what citizens could do to advance Levin’s cause, Coburn said, this has nothing to do with me, you need to lobby the OK state legislature to join the effort.
NEARING?!! He ignores the law and the Constitution and he is only NEARING grounds for impeachment?
A friend??? really? With friends like that ...
coburn is friends with evil... personally friends with evil... think about that.
Mr Coburn, do your “friends” typically have, as a part of their political agenda, a plan of destruction of the US? What kind of “friends” do you have?
Stalin and Kruschev were probably fun to bend elbow with, but I would never refer to these two as “friends”.
Mr Coburn, your senility is showing.
Ya reckon? ;-)
Obama is not a “friend” Coburn. He hates America and he hates you, you stupid fool!
he IS pandering to the crowd
Leftists hate those Pubs who kiss up to them even more than they hate the conservatives who stand up to them. They just use them.
A personal friend???
Seems Coburn need an indepth investigation too.
Coburn is talking constitutional convention. Mark Levine is not. I heard Levin say that this is not a constitutional convention he is calling for.
Romans 16:17 KJV
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
2 Thessalonians 3:14-15 KJV
And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.”
1 Corinthians 5:11 KJV
But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.”
13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
He also said Pelosi was a good woman or something like that during the Healthcare town halls . Lets call a spade a spade you can not have it both ways.
