It begins: Major demand to impeach Obama
wnd.com ^ | June 04, 2013 | WND

Posted on 06/05/2013 9:56:28 AM PDT by GeorgeWashingtonsGhost

Watergate investigator Bob Woodward of the Washington Post compares Barack Obama to Richard Nixon. Members of Congress say it’s about time to consider it. Rock legend Ted Nugent says Obama’s constitutional violations make him eligible. And even Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin has called for Obama’s impeachment.

Obama has desensitized America to rampant corruption in our government. Obama has transformed America into a third world banana republic where accountability to Congress or the people is nonexistent. This must not stand!

House might pass something. But the Politburo of a Senate will NEVER get rid of their master.

Yes, I know. Holder’s ‘contempt of Congress’ citation doesn’t mean squat to him, but at least it’s on record.

Richard Nixon was a Boy Scout compared to Obama.

Although perhaps these days that’s not quite as meaningful as a year ago.

At all events, Nixon on a very bad day was ten times the president Obama will ever be.

I’m laughing. Nothing s going to stick to this guy. The media and the 51% could not care less. Yeah, there might be a tiny minority in the media breaking away but forget it.

How can he be impeached when we can’t get answers and build a case against him? All the hearings have gone nowhere because these people working for us refuse to be held accountable.

Not unless the GOP can pick up enough seats to take control of the Senate. A couple of high profile perp walks and another impeachment or two of lower levels might just create enough of a backlash in 2014 to make that happen.

Then go after those right around Obama - Hillery, Biden, etc. Make them tainted goods for 2016. You can then open up the full impeachment of Obama in 2015.

All impeachment will do is raise Obama’s approval rating, just as it did for Bill Clinton.

I've stated this before. I'd much rather, if the scandals keep coming, that it gets too close to Obama. Best thing he could do then is just extend that summer vacation to Africa....forever.

Impeachment proceedings would just rally his troops, some of whom are beginning to waver in their blind adulation of him.

Obama ordered his IRS to rig the election of 2012 for Obama and democrats/socialists in the Senate. Obama also used other gov agencies to rig the election. Why isn’t anyone shouting this form the rooftops? Come on Levin, coulter , Sarah Palin, Rush, DRudge etc. call Obama out on this and call for Obama’s resignation.

Obama’s IRS prevented many tea party groups from getting started and also audited individual donors to Romney and to the Republican party. The IRS stole the election. We no longer live in a free country

“Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) said Thursday his constituents have suggested they were audited by the Internal Revenue Service because they donated to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign. ....”

Medea Benjamin? Hmmm..m. The “Code Pink” woman? Barack Obama’s big buddy & visitor to the White House? Horse puckey!! I smell a rat! Or BS, or both! - More likely, Medea’s just been thrown into the mix to create more DISTRACTION, and to help him by being cast as just another “Nutjob” clamoring for his impeachment.

We can just blow the dust off of Hillary's article 2:

Article 2
Using the powers of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, Barrack Insane 0bama, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, impairing the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposed of these agencies.

This conduct has included one or more of the following:

He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be intitiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.

bob woodward stated on o’bloviator last night... that this was not Watergate and that there was no evidence that obama was involved in any way... but that all of these scandals should be investigated regardless of where they lead. woodward is still an obamamite... never doubt for a second.

He is highly impeachable, but it's taking our eye off the true prize - getting this imposter thrown out as ineligible to hold the office. THAT should be our goal, Congresses goal.

Hopefully possible impeachment will be a factor in 2014 elections. Otherwise, as RetiredArmy has pointed out, divided Congress won’t complete impeachment process. After all, members of Congress deserve to be impeached, imo, for ignoring their oaths, as Obama has, to protect and defend Constitution.

Let’s not allow ourselves to be diverted from electing more Republicans in 2014.

And let’s not allow the votes of zombies to count more than the votes of living voters.

That’s a decent graphic. It does reveal Obama in the right light.

It sill bothers me that Nixon wasn’t even close to being in Obama’s league, and yet Obama is compared to Nixon as if he (Nixon) was equally as bad, or worse.

Nixon for all his shortcomings:

Loved this nation
Was loyal to the people he appointed
Resigned rather than put the nation through a Senate Trial

In 1960 Nixon conceded the election rather than cause a Constitutional crisis by objecting to the corrupted election process.

Now Nixon probably knew he was going to lose the Senate process, but the guy was nowhere near the enemy of our nation that this guy is.

I’m not targeting you with this comment, because I do understand different takes on that graphic, but the idea that Obama should be compared to Nixon is severely flawed.

Nixon for all his faults was not an enemy of the U. S.

In every sense of the word, Obama and his cabal are.

Impeachment talk is premature until Caesar Obastard’s approval rating is in the mid 20’s. Then the long knives can come out.

Impeachment proceedings in the House would be a waste of effort because not even republicans in the senate would support his removal and when it fails those supporting impeachment would be villified by the media as racist. Let Obama just continue to rot in office, he is not going to be removed. Forget it. Continue to point out the tyranny of his government and maybe the American people will awaken. Don’t count on that either

I wasn’t writing about impeachment not happening.

I answered fwdude who said the basic goal must be go after Obama for being ineligible to hold the office. He said that must become OUR basic goal and Congresses basic goal.

“That will not happen.”

“Next?”

Was my response.

Woodward covered for Clinton in much the same way. I heard him state that nothing Clinton had done came anywhere close to being Nixonian. (paraphrased)

I have no use for the guy. What an over-rated bloviating Libtard.

To all the naysayers on this thread and elsewhere, giving multitudinous excuses why the House should not impeach: You are the ones retarding the progress. The House should do the right thing, as it did with Bill Clinton, and let the Senate chips fall where they may.

The Senate should have done the right thing and convicted, but they didn’t want Al Gore as president. Our history would have been different if they had not caved to politics.

Politics be durned. Do the right thing.

I fear this impeachment process might get us right back to oral sex in the Oval Orifice once again, but with a gender-bender factor. Maybe Senator Bill Frist (or Larry) could fill us in on the possibilities. Regardless, it will never happen.

... and because this is the Democrat Socialist Party's best opportunity in a century to change America from a republic to a European socialist state they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal ... even supporting the lying criminals in the whitehouse and throughout the administration.

(That plus the unfortunate fact that no one in a position of power and authority to do so -- no elected official; no judge -- has the courage to support removing the first arguably "black" president, even in defense of the Constitution and of the American republic.)

It took years to get Nixon - it’s going to take years to get Obama’s team.

Woodward’s a credible person - he need to set up a private ‘whistle blowers’ P.O. Box. Dem ‘war room’ trolls will fill it with garbage - but real people will write too. Woodward will know the difference. Elite leftest have spend time and money learning how to ‘sound’ like a conservative - but they’ haven’t done the same with liberals. The Washington Post needs to get on this...

I'm not sure just how much RN "loved" this nation.

A lot of really bad legislation.

He upped the War against half the citizens aka WOD, and named uber dope head Elvis as a DEA agent.

He also opened the channels for selling US to China.

He did resign! Would that GW would have done that instead of turning into a drunken sailor.

My feeling too. The other thing that people are missing is this isn’t just the same old, same old corruption or even political manipulation.

This is a slow-motion coup going on before our very eyes, with Obama taking over every agency, every position, and every aspect of the government. And he wants to do it to all of us.

If Congress waits much longer to fight back, it won’t be possible.
