...I would rather just impeach the man
Yeah "Conservatives.". . . So sue him.Or is all
this just a bunch of talk that can't be backed up?
Yes, GaryO... most of Obama's offers is talk that can't be backed
up.Within a few days of having the Supreme Court decide that Obama
is over-reaching with his use of Executive Orders, he's announces he is
actually going to expand their use, instead of reigning them in, as he legally
should do. But hey, doing things illegally has never been an
impediment to this president before. He throws tantrums and blames everyone else
but himself on a regular basis when things don't go his way. He needs
to learn the art of compromising, like Reagan and Clinton did. By doing so, they
were able to get a lot of things done with bipartisan support and action. This
man creates complete gridlock by refusing to compromise whatsoever with the
other side, then blames everyone but himself.The Republican
philosophy has been two-fold:- If the President won't work with
them, they won't work with him. In other-words, turnaround is fair
play.- The country is better off keeping the President from doing
anything, than lettinghim do bad things. In other words, there are
times when no action is better than wrong action.
Hey Brio -"... most of Obama's offers is talk that
can't be backed up . . ."I was not referring to Obama. I am
referring to Boehner and the Republicans in Congress . . . A ridiculous leader
of a ridiculous party with another ridiculous proposal.There is NO
established procedure by which the House of Representatives can sue a sitting
president.The only way they could possibly sue Obama is to first
change the law. And the only way to do that is to pass a bill in the House and
have it passed by the Senate with its Democratic majority and then have it
signed by Obama.And that would NEVER happen.So yes, the
Republicans in Congress are just spewing more hot air they cannot back up with
action.So what we have here is more talk and NO action . . .
Republican Standard Operating Procedure in other words.
I just finished reading a book entitled "Blood Feud". It shows how
inept President Obama is and how he relies on Valerie Jarret. Every time he
opens his mouth he is campaigning and not leading. Its scary. I hope the
Republicans quit their internal bickering and impeach him after November. They
must get control of the Senate. If we can't legally get rid of him now, we
will probably become a third rate power like France.
@ GaryO:You wrote that the only way to change a law "is to pass
a bill in the House and have it passed by the Senate." That's interesting. Obama doesn't agree with you. He does it all the
time by himself... without action from the House or the Senate. In fact,
he's made a regular habit of making or changing laws without any action at
all from Congress. He acts like an intransigent power unto himself. The very
definition of a dictator, though he thinks he's a tutelary. Obama can never expect, nor will he obtain any cooperation from Republicans as
long as he continues to taunt them... just as the title of article states.And so the illegal misuse of executive power mandates continues.
"And exactly what would you impeach him on? Because of your hatred of him?
Because you're not happy?"Ummmmmm... Is this a rhetorical
question? He blatantly said he will take over Congress' job if they
don't comply with his demands. He is in direct violation of the
Constitution! Why even have a Congress if the president just does his own thing
and makes his own laws and ignores whatever laws Congress passes?Obama has declared war on the constitution and people are actually backing him
@ Steamroller:There are a number of grounds that Obama could be
impeached on. A few are...- Misuse of executive powers... especially
concerning Executive Orders.- Not adhering to the Constitution when he
chooses not to obey laws not to his liking. He can't legally make those
choices. He took a solemn oath to uphold all laws of the United States of
America when he became President. He hasn't. - A case could even be
made for dereliction of duty. But that would take several pages to properly
explain. Like you said, his poll numbers might then go up. Actually,
that's about the only direction they could go, seeing that his poll number
popularity is currently at an all-time low.
Fascinating to read so much venom against President Obama.President
Obama would prefer to govern with Congress. Congress would prefer Obama
didn't exist.Not a marriage made in heaven.President
Obama was elected to a second term by the people of the United States. He had a
clear platform he is trying to implement.I may understand
Republicans hate for the President of the United States. What I cannot
understand is that because of their hate they are willing to sacrifice the
country in the process.Hopefully in November Democrats will keep the
Senate and win the House. I love the Tea Party and their
intransigence. I love Boehner and his lack of personality.I think I love
the act Republicans are putting on display. Keep it up!!!
Maybe somebody will, considering that what he's doing is illegal.
Another childish Obama temper tantrum disguised by him as "leadership".
Having read all of the comments with interest, I have one question for those who
support President Obama and call others haters because they disagree with what
he is doing. That question is doesn't what President Obama is doing
bypassing Congress bother you at all?
Baccus,Americans have given us divided government. Sure, Obama won
the presidency. But Republicans have the House. In order to move any
legislation along, you must compromise. This president has never been inclined
to compromise, though he talks a good talk. Republicans have realized that they
cannot negotiate with the president as he is not an honest partner. It is
better to get nothing done that to damage the country the way Obama intends.Impeach the president for acting unconstitutionally and give a reset to
our politics, our government and our nation.
For once BO should try to find some middle ground. But no......no desire to
build anything but his own ego. Stop blaming the G.O.P... this president is only
concerned with his far left agenda. No consensus-building bone in his body.
Where are the Republican? Where is the outrage? Where is the Hatch where is Lee?
Do they all agree with the President?
David,It is strange. We are looking at the same situation and yet we
see different things. The House that is dominated by Republicans are the ones
who say... NO! before the President opens his mouth.Many of you are
talking of impeachment and other penalties against the President of the United
States. Are you telling me that your party could do all those things but is
choosing not to do it?If that were the case the Republican Party is
failing you. Don't you agree?In the other hand...may be all
this talk about Imperial presidency, impeachment, is just that....Talk! Fuel to
keep the masses going.
@ SourdoughIsn't a better question: What exactly does Congress
work on every day? They're certainly not passing any substantive
legislation that addresses the nation's problems. It seems to me they
exist merely to react to each other and to the President, doing what is being
done on this board: "It's all your fault!""Uh-huh. It's all your fault!""Yeah, but you did
this!""Well, you did this first!"The
Palestinian-Israeli conflict, American style. Great.
Liberals have lots of temper tantrums when they don't get what they want,
and then blame others for the inept results of the policies they had temper
tantrums to get.
As far as actually working, the House has passed many bills but Harry
Reid's senate will not take up any of them. Harry has no need to do
anything and when the Democrats controlled everything why didn't they make
all these changes.Doing nothing is not a bad thing.
Impeach him.......the scotus backs the idea 9-0!His activism will
get him impeached constitutionally!The guy thinks he is Bill Ayers
and can get away with murder!
Yes Obama:* you released five Hitler type terrorists.*
you've pardoned tens of thousands convicted criminals from American
prisons.* you've wasted tax money on projects like Solyndra.*
you haven't secured the borders.* you added seven trillion dollars to
the national debt.* you've spent hundreds of millions tax payer money
for vacations.And now, you want to act alone?
To "VST" I wouldn't think that Biden would last long either as
President. He would probably resign if Obama is impeached, that or else divulge
some national secret that would give congress reason to impeach him too.Hopefully the fear of an impeachment would scare Biden enough that he
wouldn't do much before 2016.
Bacchus0902,BO would rather govern with congress – as long as
they rubber stamp his proposals – remember, he told them could come along
if they wanted, but they would have to ride in the back of the bus.Those same voters who mistakenly re-elected BO also elected the Congress that
opposes BO’s wrong-headed ideas.Did you see today’s
Quinnipiac University survey, showing BO as the worst president since WWII?
That poll shows voters now think Romney would have been betterBO had
a clear platform? HAHAHAHAHA.Republicans hate what BO is trying to
do this nation. Sorry you see that as personal.Karen R,The
HOUSE passes legislation – that is what they do, they work on it every
day. reid’s does nothing since harry won’t allow a vote.
Baccus,House Republicans have tried to deal with immigration, but
the president refuses. House Republicans have voted on the Keystone pipeline.
House Republicans have passed a federal budget every year of Obama's
presidency, but the Senate has failed to follow, and the president's
budgets have failed to receive a single Democratic vote (Obama's budgets
are a joke and a sham). House Republicans have voted to balance the federal
budget, and to deal with our national debt. They voted to eliminate the
Obamacare benefits that Congress receives. They voted to get rid of Obamacare.
They have proposed restructuring entitlement programs to ensure their viability
for years to come. They have proposed restructuring income taxes to spread the
tax base. All of this has been opposed by the Senate Democrats and Obama. Democrats are pushing for weak immigration, free birth control,
expanding entitlements, and things that Republicans truthfully disagree with.
Compromise would be possible if Democrats were serious. But the president said
Republicans can come along for the ride, but they'll have to sit in the
back of the bus. No compromise there.
Go see the documentary "America" if you want to be reminded of what
America truly means. obama's Ametica has left his own culture, along with
the rest of America's poor, worse off. Even the left knows that America is
more divided than ever, but instead of finding a way to make things better, a
sign of real leadership, he is blaming the other party. He would be much better
off as a divorce attorney because he could always find numerous reasons for the
reason why a divorce is essential, rather than looking for ways to bring parties
once riven apart, together again, the real purpose of an attorney! He just
needs to go away. I am certain that even Hollywood is growing tired and wanting
a fresh new face to exalt!
The GOP are worthy of taunting. They are doing NOTHING to help the president.What are they going to do when Hillary Clinton is elected our NEXT president?
For 2 terms?
"The GOP are worthy of taunting. They are doing NOTHING to help the
president."You are right, SharpHooks. They are doing nothing to
help the president, but EVERYTHING to help this nation.Whose side
are you on? Obama's? Or America's?
What a complete nonsensical title for this article! Anyone with a working brain
understands this is all just more political fluff from the right. Don't
believe me? Google what the President would have to do in order to make this
happen then get back to me. In the meantime our President has a country to run
and two years left on his second term!
If there were grounds for impeachment he WOULD have been. Fox News is not a
court of law. Self admittedly they entertain their audience, red faced and
mouths foaming. I agree with Obama- "if you won't do your job then I
will". Somebody has to be the grownup in the room. This congress has
accomplished NOTHING but whine and try to set the house on fire. Pathetic.
