In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama.
Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees, but also its directors. For without remediation, the company's stock prices would tumble as shareholders divest and banks pull the plug.
Our government's CEO is Barack Obama, its board of directors is Congress, its workforce consists of a growing multitude of Big Government bureaucracies, and its bank is the unaccountable monopoly of the Federal Reserve. Anymore, hardly anyone with any power in that vast organization seems to represent the interests of We the People (the shareholders).
The Democrat-media complex can ridicule political opposition as "fringe" or "extremist," but the ominous ticking of the 17-trillion-dollar debt clock is becoming harder to ignore. The growing debt transforms our shares from an asset into a liability that gravely impacts our national security. Our future generations will no longer expect the reward of dividends in their pursuit of happiness. Instead, and not by choice, they inherit more than their fair share of risk -- the labor of digging out of this financial mess, the difficult task of restoring real freedom and liberty, and the rebuilding of our national status and defenses abroad.
Not only has the financial value of our shares turned upside-down, but the attached voting value has become diluted...

The problem isn’t a red line, it’s a black line....
Can’t cross the color barrier....
I for one think impeachment is a complete waste of time unless we win the Senate....and then it still might be a bad idea....since by then he will have two years left....
The impeachment train will have barely left the station by the time he’s gone....
About a million miles behind 0bama. He crossed that line years ago.
Impeachment should still go ahead if we are able. It shows that tyrants are to held accountable for their actions.
Can criminal charges be placed after he leaves office?
Other questions: When is the military coup line crossed? When is the insurrection line crossed? When does the US become a Marxist dictatorship?
I will never EVER vote for ANY black politician. They are held to NO standard.
-——Other questions: When is the military coup line crossed? -——
The day he changes by EO the military oath from the defending the constitution to defending him...
Which I don’t think will happen, but with this power mad narcissistic poser... All bets are off....
-——Impeachment should still go ahead if we are able.——
I might agree with if I thought the threat of impeachment would restrain his power grabs....
If anything that threat would empower him because the media would have his back....
Very good article by Cindy Simpson for the articles of impeachment.
He has repeatedly lied and used our airwaves to amplify those lies.
He has not passed laws that help the colonists.
He has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
His pen and his phone have dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
His pen and his phone have acted in taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our government.
He has stood idle and let unaccountable bureaucrats devalue our currency and relegate us, our children and grandchildren as slaves to debt and to the leviathan state.
He has made war upon our people and our land by division and strife.
Many of his actions have not protected us from our enemies and has used our justice department and state department to aid and abet our enemies.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

...whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
I've pestered my Tea Party congressman Steve Southerland (FL-2) endlessly about excising the virus of Obama via impeachment. His response is always that “policy differences” don't rise to the level of impeachment. I would respect his honesty if he simply said most House members were too frightened. I don't respect lies.
How about a yellow line? The burning sulphur of hell.
How about “Please get a move on, We The People.”
How about the Biden line?
That’s the scary one.
Forget it, he’s black or assumed black
Cute article, but we’re talking about the government here, not a “for profit” or other company with shareholders. Plus, a majority of the “shareholder/voters” associated with the government are simply voting for bigger dividends (largess from the public treasury) for themselves.
So what do we do? Let Obama run amok and trample the Bill of rights without the threat of Punishment?
And screw the media. Like the only people who watch network news are either very old or very stupid. And Newspapers are even worse. Most people gloss past the news and head for the comics or sports.
Obama need to face the music.
-——Obama need to face the music.——
Nothing would make happier and also sad to see this POS do the perp walk....
Happy thar justice was served and sad that the American people are such sheep they elected him twice...
As for running amok....just wait until he is a true lame duck president when the Senate no longer blocks House legislation and the only power he has is the veto pen...
He will either go full fledge tin hat dictator or go on vacay and golf...
As for trampling the bill of rights both parties are guilty....Obama just relishes in it.....
Never happen....the Pubs don’t have the spine nor the balls to step up for this much work...when we can get more people in the Senate and the House like Cruz, Paul, Lee then maybe but right now, forget about it....
“The problem isnt a red line, its a black line....”
No it’s a yellow line.
Even if it were Allan West? Herman Cane? Ben Carson?
C’mon Laz - you mis-spoke...I know you’re better than that.
Content of character FRiend, not color of skin...
——No its a yellow line.-——
Though I certainly agree the yellow line running down the backs of most pubblies is a serious problem.....
What purpose other than give the media a “ squirrel” to distract the masses of LIV from the real reason he is being impeached rather than the media promoting the pubblies being a bunch of racist mouth breathers who just hate Obama because he is black...
In principle I think we should move to impeachment .... But at what cost and what result....
In the end I think it will be a losing proposition...
I agree. I don’t think they would impeach him even if he issued an executive order making himself president for life. I’m not suggesting he will, but I’m not suggesting he won’t, either.
“In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama.”
Like Ray Stanz said in “Ghostbusters”, “ I’ve worked in the private sector, they expect results.”
What standard was Clinton (either of them) held to? The unusually good liar standard. Or as I should say, standard."Surely you dont suppose a Allen West would be given a pass? Nonsense - its not the skin color, not really - thats just a weapon. What it actually is that nobody gets called a liberal (or progressive or moderate or centrist - or any other positive label journalists can think of) without going along and getting along with the journalism monopoly. The only difference between an objective journalist and a liberal is that no journalist ever calls anyone other than a journalist objective. Thats it. Its a hiring decision, nothing more. The difference between a conservative and a liberal is that the conservative can never get a job as an objective journalist, and the liberal can - because he already has experience second-guessing people who work to a bottom line.
Screw the rule of law. Impeachment won’t happen because the very people responsible for starting that process don’t care about our laws either. How about the red line of revolution? 3%.......
Obama does not have to worry about impeachment, for the reasons cited on this thread.
What he does have to worry about is his own party taking him out.
There have been two recent closed-door meetings between Obama and party factions.
If we believe the media reports as to what these meetings were about, then we can conclude all is well. I don’t believe the media, it can be assumed the media will lie.
The Democratic party is losing independents for crying out loud. Independents! Does anyone believe they aren’t in panic mode? The critical rift of course, is Obamacare. This is where the battle lines are drawn.
Rock, meet hard place.
It is now Obamacare goes down or the Democratic Party goes down. I think they will all begin to act in their own self interest, and the question is which one has the power over the other. I realize Obama will refuse to give in, and may seem to have the upper hand, but the Dems in Congress could put Obamacare to rest, and let’s face it, now that it has been implemented, even key Dem constituencies are against it.
Pass the popcorn.
This was a coup d’etat by MB/al Qaeda
who are now in charge of what was once the USA.
Law is gone. Freedom is gone. The Constitution is gone.
Accountability is gone.
The hated, EXEMPT, treasonous US Congress has abdicated
to their banks, brothels, and 4th vacation homes.
It appears to be more of a pink gradient.
The hierarchy of elected politicians priority
1. Get yourself re-elected
2. Help get your fellow member re-elected
3. Take care of your large donors
4. Keep your mistress happy to keep her mouth shut
5. Keep wife in plenty of happy pills
6. Take care of your dog.
7. Your constituents...but only during election cycles
Golf buddies are exempt from impeachment.
(it's in the Constitution..)
Just as he need not instruct the IRS to sic his enemies, his newly reformed military will need no explicit order to protect our Darky Despot.
Yes. I misspoke. But I’m angry at all the racism being shown by the average black to my kind of people.
I believe some else previously nailed it when they stated it is not a “red line”, it is a “YELLOW LINE”.
There are too few rhino’s that will stand up and support impeaching odumbo. They ALSO need to be “impeached”, by the legal voters.
The founders wanted to make replacement of the President difficult. They did not want it to be like Italy turned out to be.
In practice, they made replacement impossible. There will never be a 2/3 majority in the Senate to convict, Barack or any one else.
The die is cast...when "You can keep your health care if you want to" lie was exposed...
Anybody with a functioning brain knows Obamacare needs to die or at least be seriously reformed...
Those same people also know the only way to kill or reform Obamacare is to dump the dems...
It's going to be a bloodbath for the dems come 2014...
His actions has assured that no one with a working brain will ever vote for him again, not that he will have any opportunities unless he uses his executive powers to repeal the 22nd amendment (which his idiot followers would’t get why that’s a bad thing). He’s like hiring the Mafia to manage the IRS. Bad idea.
Face it, if Bama were a white pubbie he would have been impeached by now. Old Uncle Sam, now Uncle Schmuck will never impeach it's first black president, of Kenyan descent.
Understand FRiend. Sometimes I need to just “step away”, or go to God about it all.
You got this.
And the German’s lament still remains with: How, when,where, and how did we let this happen?
They are held to the black standard, which is a horse of a different color.
“When does the US become a Marxist dictatorship?”
Soon, comrade, soon.
What about the name, “Soviet States of America”
Pretty catchy, isn’t it?
That line is way back there in January of 2008 with his first official lie, his oath of office.
The lawlessness of the Senate is no excuse for the House to fail to act in line with its responsibilities.
Cant cross the color barrier....>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Not true. Its time for all Americans to be Americans. Why sjhould we submit to the divide and conquer meme of the Black Power Nationalist Redistribution Socialist Obama Movement.
The biggest fear they have is that we awaken and unite against them. The only thing stopping us is the GOP elite, who want things to be ‘the same’ when in fact they are not business as usual at all.
The GOP will never again achieve majority elective office as long as Boehner, McConnell and others remain passive players in the face of Obamas nationalist socialism.The future is with Cruz, Lee , and others, those whom the GOP seeks to destroy on behalf of Obama.Congress has power. Its time to use it agianst a criminal executive,or get out of town.
Dumb question. He could start exterminating people on live tv and the SRM would not question it. The rats would defend it. The GOPe would sit on their hands. Nothing would happen.
Indeed, impeachment should be a start to prosecute the way business goes on in DC at large. Further charges should follow.
It is a dangerous precedent to have people bragging about what they can get away with, the number of people they have fooled and made money of, or, worse, in the case of Mao the number ofnpeople they murdered.
Always is easier for a tyrant to murder his own first, then they murder entire countries.
