Skip to comments.IMPEACH OBAMA! (33 percent say impeachment is on the table)
Posted on 12/10/2009 7:15:57 AM PST by kristinn
The continuing loss of support for Barack Obama has produced a budding groundswell for his impeachment, according to a poll released yesterday by Public Policy Polling.
Even though impeachment is not a major topic in political discourse on the Internet, talk radio or cable news shows, the public's growing revulsion with Obama has caused twenty percent of the electorate to want to see him removed from office not even a full year in to his term as president, with another thirteen percent open to the idea.
The poll also showed that forty-four percent would rather have former President George W. Bush back in office now instead of Obama.
Broken down by party, thirty-five percent of Republicans want Obama impeached, as do fifteen percent of independents.
Obama even has ten percent of Democrats wanting him impeached.
To add insult to injury, only forty-seven percent of those surveyed would admit to voting for Obama out of fifty-three percent who voted for him last year.
Five percent of admitted Obama voters want him impeached.
PPP's Tom Jensen doesn't say why they asked the impeachment question, but he offered this condescending comment at the group's blog:
I'm not clear exactly what 'high crimes and misdemeanors' they are using to justify that position but there may be a certain segment of voters on both the right and the left these days that simply think the President doing things they don't agree with is grounds for removal from office. I don't think Obama has a lot to worry about on that front.
Jensen left out treason and bribery as grounds for impeachment.
For starters, a case for treason is being made here. More grounds are surely to be found without much effort.

Good I have my bumpersticker ready.
They ain’t gonna like it if we the people do it ourselves.
He wouldn’t need be impeached if birthers are right.
Is this above the normal percentage that want to impeach any president?
In any case, I support impeachment, ouster, and imprisonment of the traitor in chief.
He should be impeached, but it ain’t gonna happen. There are still too many star-struck lovebirds in the media and Congress who think this gutless traitor walks on water.
It’d be a safer and far more entertaining prospect.
Impeachment must become a topic for national discussion along with cleaning out the Congress come 2010 and 2012. Treason is being committed and the American people realize our future depends on unraveling the plot and whose behind it that is destroying our country.
The arrogance and in-your-face attitude of the Elitists in DC must be voted out.
Can anyone tell me why not one member of the White House press corp will not ask The One why he will not produce his long form birth certificate? Are they ALL sheep?
My understanding is that it costs ten bucks to have the state of Hawaii release the form...I will gladly fork over the ten dollars.
Why does having this question make me a nut? Why is so much of Obama’s background a blank? Why is the press so incurious? I thought media people were supposed to be our watchdog? Bow wow, this group doesn’t even bark.
Yeah, I heard them talking about this on MSNBC....
HA! Just kidding ;-)
This fool doesn't watch Glenn Beck obviously. There are already plenty of valid reasons to impeach the Kenyan.
Just for the record...I am a proud “Birther” and Climate Denier”. Thank you.
Biden has been somewhat squirrely in the past, but he is not nearly the ideologue that Obama is.
It is impossible to impeach someone who is a pretender, usurper, and has not qualified for the position of president.
The action needed is arrest and criminal trial.
I’ll take idiot Biden over the Meglomaniacal Narcissist any day.
I think we should just kick him out the old fashioned way. The attempts to impeach Clinton gave Dems a rallying cry that not only helped him win re-election but helped them make gains in the second wave of mid-terms.
The whole place needs to go.
That would be a great tag line! :-)
