How do we prevent Obama from resigning?
July 6, 2014 | Me

Posted on 07/06/2014 12:56:19 PM PDT by Sen Jack S. Fogbound

If Obama should resign, all his activities and "accomplishments" will remain in effect!

If he is impeached and convicted, all his Executive Orders, signatures on passed laws, become NULL and VOID thus setting the stage back to January 20, 2009 before he took that oath (that's debatable)

If we impeach him now, Harry Reid will trash it in the Senate thus preventing the trial and conviction.

So the question is this: How do we keep him from resigning before the Republicans can take over the Senate?

Based on what? The SCOTUS has ruled the opposite in another case.

Please explain. Executive orders can be reversed. Czars can be fired. The EPA can be reined in by a new executive. Only legislation—primarily the ACA—will remain. And, if it’s unpopular in the wake of a resignation, it might get overturned... depending on who the next President is (obviously not for Biden, Hillary, or Warren).

He is too arrogant to resign. There are two parts to impeachment. Clinton was only 1/2 impeached. He was not removed form office. I think they will be too busy with other stuff to get anything done anyway.

A - he’s not going to resign
B - he’s not going to be impeached
C - if he were impeached he wouldn’t be convicted
D - conviction in an impeachment does not retroactively erase a presidency

Huh? They can easily be undone.

Biden is a hard-left idiot, but an idiot all the same, and even the Dems in the legislature are feeling the negative blowback on Bambi’s unilateral policies. S I think even Old F Joe might be susceptible to reason, at least enough to undo some of the “executive actions.”

What makes you think he’s going to resign?

Obama is too arrogant to ever bring himself to resign.

He would turn his armed private Alphabet Army and Homosexual Legions loose on the populace and do his best to destroy the country before he would ever admit failure.

Republicans will not take enough of the senate to convict. Even if they win 100% of them senate seats up for election they will only have 66 seats. And there is no way they will win every senate race.

Obama will only be impeached if so a democrats decide he’s bad for their party.

Also not sure where the logic is that impeachment rolls back the clock comes from but I don’t think that is how it works.

That's not how it works.
In order for that to happen, you would have to find a reason why he was Constitutionally ineligible to hold the presidency — IOW, the only way for this to be possible is the Natural Born Citizen clause. (And even then it's a crapshoot; the legal people might try pulling something out of their asses.)

I was hoping that bush would cancel some or all of clintons EOs. Didnt cancel one that I can recall. Got to make sure the next incoming republican president will.

This 2nd term will likely complete normally, and hopefully the next POTUS will terminate the vast array of egregious EOs. Should we be so fortunate early 2017, we’ll need to be prepared for heavy battle on the 4th estate.

Clinton was only 1/2 impeached. He was not removed form office.

The house impeaches, the senate convicts (or doesn't)

Clinton was 100% impeached by the house.

The senate did not convict but that doesn't nullify his impeachment.

Clinton will forever be an impeached president.

They won’t. Nobody wants to start down that path, because once it happens once it’ll happen every time. Which it probably should, but neither party wants that world.

By "debatable", do you mean "totally made up wishful thinking"?

Nothing invalidates the president's signature on laws. The next president can continue the executive orders of his predecessor as he sees fit, but it has nothing to do with how the predecessor leaves office.

Clinton was “fully impeached”. He admitted that he was guilty of the charge, and the Senate-in all of its glory-said “no you’re not” and refused to convict him.

“The next President can cancel all of the EO’s”

You’re correct. But, I doubt that will happen whether GOP or Dem wins POTUS. That is, unless Ted Cruz should become Prez. But, that won’t happen either. Should he win the GOP primary, he would be demonized so severely one would think he’s equal parts child molester, wife beater, used car salesman, lawyer, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi all rolled up into one :)

Resign?

We’ll be lucky if he doesn’t manufacture a crisis and invoke martial law to avoid stepping down down in 2016.

He fancies himself President in the third world sense, where El Presidente rules via coalition of power, with no regard for law. Think Hugo Chavez.

Your premise is flawed from the start.

#1 - Obama will never resign
#2 - The laws will only be overturned if challenged in court AND overturned by the SCOTUS.

Just like President Ford did with President Nixon, if Obama were to resign, the new President Biden would premptively pardon Barry for any and all crimes that he may have committed, before any trial could take place.

That’s not how it works.

First of all, he’s not going to resign. He’s a Chicago thug who has figured out he can do pretty much what he wants as long as there are fewer than 67 Republican senators.

Second, if he were to resign or be removed (in the unlikely event he does something so egregious that there are enough Democrat cross-overs to sustain an impeachment), all the laws and executive orders he signed would remain in effect until repealed or countermanded.
