Lt. Col. Oliver North: “Any Other President Would Have Been Impeached” [VIDEO]
Conservative Tribune ^ | May 15 2014 | Conservative Tribune

Obama is quite possibly the worst ruler America has had since King George III. In the past six years, we have seen scandals, bald lies, intimidation, and a host of other nefarious and unethical dealings come straight from the Obama Administration.

Just look at just some of the Administration’s failures: an anemic response to Putin regarding Ukraine, coverups on Benghazi and the IRS targeting of conservative groups, the NSA’s spying on Americans, and the tragic failure of Fast & Furious.

This is why so many Americans are calling for Obama’s impeachment. This includes Congressmen, a Senator, former Judges, a former prosecutor, and the Texas Lt. Governor, just to name a few.

Another name in this growing chorus is former Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North.

Via WND:

Lt. Col. North put it bluntly:

“Tragically, this administration has gotten away with things that any other president would have been impeached for,” he said. “There’s no doubt in my mind.”

He cited what he called “leadership deficit disorder” as being a growing problem in the White House, leading to numerous failures (like Ukraine and Benghazi).

“The one leadership example he’s given is how to avoid accepting responsibility for anything,” he said. “It’s always someone else’s fault.”

North hit the nail on the head. We have a Chief Executive who, quite frankly, doesn’t have a clue how to run a country. (That’s what you get when you elect someone whose only qualifications are two years in the Senate and some time as a “community organizer.”) As North put it,

“We The People are supposed to hold our government accountable. We The People spurned that opportunity twice in Presidential elections.”

Rush put it correctly when he pointed out that the Dems will do all they can to elect a female, or a Hispanic or a minority of some sort so that no criticism will be permitted because it would be racist, homophobic or in some way politically incorrect. It is their style. It will be their tactic. Its gotten Obama off the hook for the last 6 years. Its a proven strategy.

Not true. George III was FAR better.

Woodrow Wilson was pretty bad.

His government was certainly less intrusive into the colonists’ daily lives, and it probably consumed less of the fruits of their labor as well. And yet, in 2012 Americans asked for more. Makes one wonder.

Yeah, but we can’t impeach Obama because he’s half white. BO needs to check his privilege.

Wait til he does the Thrid Term thing—Cancels the November election. He do not have a president but a child king—an man who would not be president save for his black skin and “White Guilt”. We are not done with him yet.

Indeed, at least King George III was open and honest about his laws and taxes - they weren’t obfuscated by 1200 pages of parchment.

"Obama is quite possibly the worst ruler America has had since King George III."

1. America (the people of this federation of States) has/have not had a ruler since George III. Public servants may sometimes exercise executive power, but they are not correctly classified as "rulers."

2. As is clear from Jefferson's analysis (Declaration Of Independence--With Study Guide, a major part of George III's failure was in failing to protect his American subjects from the meddling of the British Parliament. In contrast, Obama has been the initiator of far more extreme abuses. There is frankly no way that he is less objectionable than was the British monarch.

Just some distinctions that should help to clarify the issues.

If there was even one patriot in Washington, BO would be in an orange jumpsuit.

And a large number of people who committed crimes to get him in office and subsequently doing his bidding since he got elected. By “his bidding” I mean Valerie Jarrett obviously since he’s a brain damaged doper faggot who does/says what he’s told.

Your welcome. The tragedy is that so few Americans ever bother to read the Foundational documents in context.

King George III didn’t take an oath to defend our Constitution.

The elections won’t be cancelled. That would throw the Congress into a complete turmoil, with no congressmen and only 66 Senators having a mandate to sit. But "what difference does it make?”

The POTUS is not popularly elected. It is the Electoral College which elects the POTUS - and a popular election isn’t necessary to select the electors. The state legislatures can do it - and it is only a tradition which ties that selection to a popular election. Therefore the mere expedient of canceling the election on the first Tuesday in November, 2016 would not actually cancel the presidential election. The Congress does set the date for the vote of the electoral college, and that would be subject to a presidential veto - but, especially if the Republicans take the Senate, they can set that date before Obama would be willing to tip his hand, in an uncontroversial clean bill. Then there wouldn’t be any excuse for vetoing it - and it would be a scandal if he did.
