House Republicans Schedule Obama Impeachment Hearings

Oct 14, 2013
GOP Leaders Cite Inability to Halt Government Shutdown

bachmann-gohmert-king-presser-4a591e1a1c95b8773f7b75242e36e943dd302aef-s6-c30Republicans in the House of Representatives have scheduled impeachment proceedings against President Obama, claiming his inability to halt the federal government shutdown makes him unfit for office.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann introduced a resolution to impeach Obama this morning and referred the matter to the House Judiciary Committee. Senior aides close to judiciary chairman Bob Goodlatte say hearings will begin Thursday.

"I think it's high time President Obama be held accountable for his crimes," explains Bachmann. "For two weeks now, vital government services have been disrupted, federal workers have gone without pay and national memorials have been closed, all because of the president's refusal to negotiate over Obamacare.

"This isn't just poor leadership. The Obama administration is corrupt to the core. The scandals surrounding the IRS, Benghazi, the Fast and the Furious (sic) and Solyndra have shown us this cabal will do anything to stay in power.

"But in shutting down the government President Obama has committed economic treason against the United States of America, and he must be removed before it's too late. The Constitution provides us the mechanism of impeachment. It's time to end this dictatorial regime and return the presidency back to the American people."

Sour Tea

The U.S. federal government shut down on Oct. 1 after House Republicans refused to fund it unless President Obama agreed to repeal his signature health care reform, the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.

Although most polls show that a majority of Americans blame Republicans for the shutdown, many in the Tea Party feel President Obama is at fault  for not immediately acquiescing to their demands.

"The tipping point for me was closing the World War II memorial," says Texas Republican Louie Gohmert, who voted for the bill which effectively shut down the government. "I can't believe Obama did that. I mean how dare he put politics ahead of our veterans.

"All this clown needs to do is repeal the most important law he ever passed, and then this will all be over. Why is that so hard? The Tea Party represents almost 22 percent of Americans. Only a dictator would refuse to give us everything we want. Obama should be more than impeached -- he should be in jail."

Hearings in the judiciary committee are expected to last for two weeks, after which the committee will create specific impeachment charges and refer them to the full House. If a majority of House members vote to impeach the President, the matter is referred to the Senate, where he will face trial. The Senate's Democratic majority makes ultimate success unlikely.

"We probably won't be successful," admits Ted Cruz, one of the few Republicans in the Senate supporting the impeachment process. "But we have to try. This guy is worse than Hitler. We have to do something."

    They are flipping stupid if they think this is Obama’s fault. If you don’t like the way something is being ran in Government then VOTE WITH AN EDUCATED VOTE, not one just based on your political affiliation.
    Secondly, this article makes it sound like Obama isn’t willing to negotiate with the Republicans, what ever happened to the Republicans compromising with Obama? It’s a two way street. Personally, I think the Affordable Health Care Act is brilliant, we’ve needed national medical coverage for all people for a long time.
    Stupid.

  • Ryan

    ^^^ You have NEVER read the Affordable Care Act ^^^

  • Judas

    Wow u r stupid if u don’t think this guy is totally corrupt. Forget the debt ceiling or obamacare. He’s a war criminal and should be imprissoned.

  • Caroline

    The House would not be doing its job if they agreed to the raise the debt ceiling again for the ACA. The Obama administration is not working with the House to decrease our federal debt. Obama said in the beginning we could keep our doctors, we could keep our current insurance plans if we liked them, he said our insurance rates would actually decrease. None of these have proven true. Not only that, but the Obama administration had to go back to the House and say they needed MORE money to fund the ACA! It is a joke. You cannot socalize medicine and Medical care because it is on an individual basis. My health care may be more or less than yours… It would never cost the same. A single payer system will not work.

  • John

    Probably a reason why your parents named you Judas!!!!

  • Gerald Da Sylva

    Gee! The President won’t do what you, twenty three percent of the people in America, want? Any one in your gang has ever had a problem paying for healthcare? Oh, I guess, you can’t see why you should pay for anyone else to survive financially as well as physically a serious health issue… Yeah! Let’s impeach this megalomaniac who thinks that Americans should rise to the same standard as the rest of the civilised world: what a crazy ambition!

  • bennie

    thank GOD. I pray that can get him impeached

  • anthonyadams

    Hey John – more proof that the wackamoles are useless idiots who willingly display their gross stupidity.

  • Ed

    And people wonder why Obama doesn’t want to sit across the table to negotiate with these people?

    Well, if you want to bring up Obama on impeachment charges for not stopping the shut down… better add Imam Boehner to the indictment. Afterall, he secretly changed the house rules, not allowing any member of the House to call for a floor vote on the Senate bill.

  • Ed

    Caroline… do you understand that the debt ceiling has nothing at all to do with any costs associated with the ACA? That it only is about paying back loans against what was already spent?

    Like, I don’t know a couple of trillion for wars, a few more hundred billion for unpaid for tax cuts, add another few hundred billion for unpaid for drug programs… you know, stuff like that that the GOP spent money on.

    You can’t decrease DEBT until you deal with the deficit first. You do understand the difference between the two, right? And at the current time our deficits are falling faster than they have in more than 50 years.

  • bennie

    I don’t think you know what you are talking about. and are you a American.

  • ed

    A war criminal for what? Libya? If so, than I guess you feel that Bush should also be in prison, correct? Afterall there were a dozen embassy attacks during his tenure. Oh and lets not forget the bold face lies and twisting of information to start a war, costing 4000 American lives and a couple of trillion as well, never off set by any spending cuts.

    You aren’t Judas… your cluelas!

  • Caroline

    The debt ceiling has to be raised every month because they are spending too much money. The ACA will increase the debt, therefore they have to increase the debt ceiling. The deficit is the difference between the money the Government takes in and what the Government spends each year. Our debt is still piling up, the ACA will add to this debt. This debt which we as tax payers will be paying for. My family almost lost our health insurance this year due to the ACA. I went online to see what we might qualify for under the ACA. In my case my premium for my family was only 600.00 a year. However, our deductablewas 30,000. That isn’t affordable health care.

  • Christine Handy

    I think they all should be impeached! so why your getting rid of the president make sure you impeach yourself’s! your all at fault for our country! why people are losing everything they have built so hard for there family, You jerks are playing games and it’s all of you’s! This should of never happened are country is a joke be cause of congress! Shame on how all of you’s have destroyed the greatest country in the world! so please as you impeach are president put your names on that list too!

  • Christine Handy

    ALL OF CONGRESS IS CORRUPT!!! They all need to see what it feels like to be the hard working AMERICAN. These ppl are a joke! I think good impeach but should not stop at the president! we need a GOVERMENT that stands for the people and is TUFF but FAIR and believes in america and the back bone of our country!

  • Caroline

    Actually, obama could be considereda war criminal if the US attacks Syria. This is because of the treaties. So Obama would be considereda war criminal by the EU.

  • JMC

    Wow…you’re whole statement was an oxymoron. You are so clueless, it’s pathetic. It is Obama who REFUSES to negotiate. If you’ve been under a rock…he is going for full dictatorship, and that’s why he won’t work with congress. Turn your TV off and learn about Agenda 21….it’s our New World Order. Anyone who supports this terrorist Muslim in our WH needs to also be tarred and feathered.

  • JMC

    WOW…talk about clueless!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Me

    And the dems have done nothing of the kind, is what you are telling me!!!! It is because people like you in the Senate and the WH that we are in this predicament!

  • Me

    We were paying for all the illegal democrats healthcare before this was law and now the feds want to put their grubby hands in it to try and make a profit! Talk about adding insult to injury!

  • Eric

    I hope you folks get mounted by a rabid dog. oh boo hoo we don’t get what we want so we will harm the US. it is far time that all politicans start earning their pay. the republicans are a joke woth no leg to stand on so they create strife and then.pass the blame to Obama?!?!?! Get bent!!!!!!

  • LS Militia

    The Tea Party has been trying to change the status quo of our Congress. As long as people keep drinking the koolaid the liberal media feeds everyone, our country is doomed to become exactly like the european countries in which our founding fathers declared their independence.

  • Joanne Epperson Deist

    This is a satiric piece LMAO @ you low information people who don’t bother to confirm. By the way the words, I will not negotiate came out if obamas mouth … several times.

  • Joanne Epperson Deist

    This is a satiric piece LMAO @ you low information people who don’t bother to confirm. By the way the words, I will not negotiate came out if obamas mouth … several times.

  • Bill Moss

    we need to make sure the Senate knows that if they don’t impeach “We the People will rise up against them and remove them from office and charge them and Obama with High Treason…

  • Bill Moss

    Stupid is as stupid does and if you think socialized medicine is so only one responsible but the temper tantrum he is throwing shutting down War Monuments and other facilities that require guarding at the peoples expense when they normally are not is illegal under the law during a gov. shutdown. Before you criticize our voting claiming it is uneducated you need to study the Constitution.for the United States.

  • Truth is fact, not opinion

    Typical liberal tripe. Wishing harm on people and no facts, only opinion. You should be ashamed. I would never wish harm or death on any one, especially for just having a different opinion than me. That just goes to show you have some seriously messed up values. Most republicans do suck, just as most dems suck. The government is clearly corrupt and it is all a game of good cop, bad cop. In the end, we are all chained to the world they force us to live in. Some people want to be led and controlled. I choose to be free to make my own decisions. Down with big government!

  • Ron Bedell

    I can think of a number of better things to impeach Barry on. Besides I think any impeach attempt will be stop cold in the House by Boehner.

  • R. Scott Stewart

    Actually, the Republicans have tried to negotiate. They sent several compromise bills over. They set up a meeting time. But its Obama who has repeatedly refused to negotiate. Why should he when no matter what he does his minions will find a way to seemingly justify it, and say he did nothing wrong?
    Like this poster?

  • R. Scott Stewart

    Regarding the AFA, in the Supreme Court’s own decision, it “gives Congress broad new powers.” It also gave the court the broad new power to literally rewrite legislation, and Obama has seized the right to pick and choose what law he will institute and when and how. The Court decision also creates a tax on…nothing. Government can now tax non activity. And the Act in effect nationalizes two of our biggest industries, health care and insurance. Yeah, brilliant like a mad scientist.

    About Time The PeoPle Decided To Stand Up For This Country! Lets Bring America Back!

  • Barry Soetoro

    Impeach this terrorist or We the People will rise up and it won’t be good to anyone who stands in our way.

  • MicheleandMarty Zimmerman

    IMPEACH HIM!!!!! We want our Country back – before it’s too late!!!!!

  • Lynn Miers

    I think the people should be heard. Impeach Obama.

  • Coby B

    We already have national medical coverage. It’s called going to the e.r. and getting what ever wrong with you fixed. It is not the responsibility of everyone else to pay for others health care that are lazy bums. I have mouth cancer and no insurance if i die because of it then that is my fault for not working harder in my life so i could afford to get this cancer taken care of no one else just mine. If the good lord says it’s my time then it’s my time.

  • Rick Pellegrin

    yes you are stupid.

  • Jennifer

    I agree. Before Obama makes this a communist country, he should be impeached. One by one our freedoms are being taken. His brother is in the alcaida muslim regime and this poses a big threat. He is laundering money to our enimies and getting rid of our troops more and more. He is purposely making us vulnerable. America is the land of the free. This means we have the right to bear arms. Wehave the right to choose to have insurance or not. This Obamacare strips us of our rights. We have the right to have freedom of speechand yet he passed a bill to take it away. He took freedom of press away if it offends him. Other countries are becoming free while our President and his regime are making us slaves. A person like him should have never been elected and as far as we know he could be a sleeper cell put in America by the Alcaida so that he can inflatrate our nation and take it down. There are millions that want him impeached.

  • Suzanne

    Hitler???!!! Seriously???? There’s absolutely no comparison. I think it’s a disgrace to say such a thing!!

  • Jammie Bradford

    IMPEACH!!!!!!! Ask the people in a honest POLE how they feel! every VOTE count! Every person!

  • Rob

    I thought I was looking at replies when I upvoted you. You do realize that a lot of moronic republicans voted FOR Obamacare? They did more than compromise or negotiate. And, no, MR. Obama is not negotiating. He’s throwing a powty little hissy fit like immature piece of scum he is. This bill is not national coverage for anyone. It is expensive insurance that requires other insurers to increase their rates as well. And if you opt out you pay thousands in penalties. NO ONE CAN AFFORD THIS SO CALLED AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE.

  • Barry Soetoro

    Speaking of that 2 way street… Is that the same street Obama keeps skipping when he calls executive decision on 98% of his decisions? This IS Obama’s fault. If he cared any single bit about the People of the United States, he would have already ended this shut down but no, he still holds out. National Medicare coverage is nice if you can do it without hurting people but this has done nothing but hurt the people. People losing hours because their work place can’t afford to provide them Obamacare is just the tip of the iceberg! You are the kind of idiot Obama feds off of. The ones who see only the outter edge of what he’s doing, but cares nothing to read further in. Please cease to exist.

  • Edna Jackson Barefoot

    IF THE SENATE DOES NOT IMPEACH THEY CAN COUNT ON LOSING THEIR POSITIONS AT NEXT ELECTION CAUSE BY THEN EVEN DEMS. WILL AGREE. I AGREE NOW & I AM A REGISTERED DEM. THINK I WILL CHANGE AFTER ALL THIS. BUT I DID NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA

  • Rioghan

    He is a war criminal for aiding our enemy in Syria. Supporting “rebel” groups with known links to Al Qaeda is treason in my book. And, yes, Bush is a criminal also. Obama, despite not looking like a complete idiot to the masses when giving a speech, has led a more war-like regime than Bush. It does not excuse Bush one bit though.

    You cannot argue stupidity. Most Idiotic article I have ever read so far. Waste of time.

  • Bobby Shelton

    All I’m am going to say is this country isn’t nothing like is used to be. Put a hard working man or woman in the white house that has had to struggle to put food on the table for there families and had to earn an honest dollar and this country will turn around. We the people need change before this country is nothing more than a dirty dish.

  • Jeff Smith

    How can you decrease the deficit by borrowing more money? The debt ceiling also has nothing to do with whether or not we can make interest payments, contrary to MSNBC, CNN, and all the other gloom and doom “news” agencies. The US continues to take in funds via taxes, fines, interest payments being paid on money WE lend to other countries, etc. Those funds are currently sufficient to pay our outstanding funded liabilities.

    July 2013 – Obama states the Affordable Care Act will put money back in the pockets of 8.5 million Americans.
    January 2013 – Census Bureau confirms there are 316.5 million Americans.
    So, who do you think the money comes from to go back into the pockets of the 8.5 million?
    Translation of Obama’s July 2013 speech – “I’m going to take money out of 308 million Americans pockets and give it to the 8.5 million pockets.”
    It’s just another tax. There are better ways to do this than Obamacare.

  • Akir11

    Something is one word. Honestly, everyone’s opinions on here are too ridiculous to even argue with because dumb people never listen or change their minds. However, when they make asinine spelling mistakes and misuse words, you can point it out and they won’t be able to deny they’re wrong. It also shows that they probably don’t know what they’re talking about if they say to ask people in a honest metal rod how they feel.

    How about impeaching him for his real crimes: Fast and Furious, IRS targeting of political opponents, Benghazi, aiding our enemies in North Africa and the Middle East, his outrageous mistreatment of journalists and whistleblowers, and for that very funky stuff with the nukes moved from Texas to SC followed immediately by firing the two top military officers in charge of our nukes?

    Excuse me…that is straight bs….my husband and I barely make it and barely can afford insurance…now my premiums have almost doubled for 2014 and I don’t get a pay increase….and i am supposed to be happy about paying for others healthcare? They need to get a job and stop living off this government

  • Nancy Evans

    We all know there will be no impeachment, so why keep harping on it. Just remember what is happening this year and vote with some intelligent thought and information in future elections. We are all to blame, we put them in office to do as they please and are paying the price now.

  • Fay Jackson

    No it’s Money In OBAMA’S Pocket ..I don’t care What some Idiot say’s I know the debt has gone up over 16 Trillion Since OBAMA came into office every one talks about that fact These people need to Clean out their Ears or some thing..How many time were we told about him giving money to some country or Guns of some sort what is wrong with these people he is giving Weapons to other Countries while he is trying to take our weapons away Is there some thing wrong with these People or what ?

  • Keith Kelly

    Hey House Republicans how about pass a jobs bill and stop wasting your time. This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. Michele Bachman says the President should be impeached for shutting down the government when they shut the government down. That is ludicrous. Republicans said if you don’t defund or delay Obamacare we are going to shutdown the government. This is after Speaker Boehner had already made a deal with Majority Leader Reid on the Continuing Resolution (CR), which reflected a budget number more favorable to Republicans. The CR has nothing to do with Obamacare. It’s one thing to have a problem with Obamacare and another to hold the government hostage to deal with your concerns instead of doing it through the regular process.

  • Babyboop

    it was Obama who said it word for word he will not negotiate. So while you wanna sit there and say the republicans are the ones who wont you need to actually watch some of what YOUR president is saying cause as far as I see it he is not our president he is trying to become the next Hitler and people like you are the reason he has made it this far.

  • Akir11

    Yes, those who can’t afford health care are lazy bums. You have no idea how long and hard people work low paying jobs to support their families. Maybe they can’t afford it because, I don’t know, they didn’t have the same opportunities as someone like me to be able to go to school. Just because you allegedly have mouth cancer and blame yourself for not working harder, which I’m 99% sure is a lie, doesn’t mean others who do work hard or don’t have the same opportunities don’t deserve a little help.

    you obviously have no clue what so ever about what this self proclaimed “Affordable healthcare is going to cost you. This plan is disquised as a healthcare package but the more you read into it. over by 2017 it will be nothing but a HUGE tax that i know for a fact YOU would not be able to afford. you really need to read the whole healthcare bill NOT JUST THE SILVER PLAN. People like you listen to the currupt media you percieve with what you Want to hear but not reality that this is more than a health care bill its a huge PROGRESSIVE TAX! and Grows annually to the point basically your going to be even more poor than before. i looked at the figures if i pay the min required by the law would be around 300+ a month vs the insurance i have now that is 145 a month. by 2017 ill be paying around 1400 a month with the progressive tax increases.

    Mel, “Under God” was not originally apart of the pledge… Religiously biased “Christians” added it later. And I thought this country had Freedom of Religion yet every “Christian” shoves their god down all of our throats in every political aspect! Which takes me straight to Gay Marriage… The only reason it isn’t passed in all states is because “Christians” violate Freedom of Religion and expect everyone to conform. What a hypocritical bunch! A real person of God would know that the relationship between oneself and his/her God is a PERSONAL one… Not a political masquerade!

Stop paying Past Presidents $430,000.00 a Year and make them live on Social Security Like the rest of the Senior Citizens do…. Get Real People it is not all OBAMA’S fault.. Everyone in Congress, the House of Representatives and the Senate are to blame for the SHUT DOWN…..

  • Skin

    I found out yesterday that my wife’s insurance is going up $2400.00 a year come the first of Jan. Over $6500.00 a year. Not sure about mine at this time. Just wanted to thank all of you who voted for Obama. But you know what’s funny, your insurance is going up as well. Enjoy…… and please don’t get pissed like I did, you know you voted for change, so change you got. Pay up like the rest of us! I’ll manage, lets hope you can as well. Just Saying!!!!!!

  • Joanne Epperson Deist

    that sounds word for word like what I’ve been seeing in the liberal media. Good to see you think for yourself.

  • Bobby N Chell Riha

    It is not affordable health care It is running insurance amounts up 360.00 a month for people in our area that do work. We can not afford healthcare that is well over 600 a month. It is only affordable to those who are not working and on welfare plus the fact that they are cancelling policies on those who have serious illnesses such as cancer and such. This is so wrong in so many ways

  • tamber2000

    I just laughed so hard at your expense. So you don’t want an economy like Scandinavia or Germany right? Because what you are saying is complete BS. Many European countries are in far better economic and diplomatic shape than we are. Perhaps you should also read a history book on the founding of our country because man we wouldn’t have achieved our independence if it was not for European powers aiding us (France, Spain, Netherlands). I bet you think Obama is a Muslim and from Kenya too? Read a real book sometime.

  • Jessie

    Wrong. The Affordable Health Care Act was bill that went through all the proper channels, and became law. The republicans are refusing to vote to fund the government, until it is repealed. Saying that Obama refuses to negotiate is like a bank robber taking a person hostage, and then claiming that the banker, who won’t give him what he wants, is the cause of the situation, because he won’t give him the money.

Little Boys and Girls in Washington need to grow up and stop spending OUR money on the things that benefit them..

    What stand is it that you are taking sir? Writing this comment?

    You miss the point, its not about you paying for other peoples healthcare we have done that for years. its about the Hidden Tax increases and overpricing pay scales vs current and basic economic conditions just don’t allow for family to afford this NON affordable insurance….i will see a 45% increase in cost alone in my situation. my grandparents will just have to pay the IRS fines would be cheaper.

    It would be great if it was an OPTION not being forced into purchasing it and forcing religious businesses to go against their beliefs in what they have to provide. The health care act is not being provided as an option but being forced with penalties for not complying. Second, why call it Obama care, why not America health care or something that represents everyone?

  • me

    Even if the impeachment is refused by the Senate, the fact will still go down in the history books that the Traitor known as Obama has been impeached . It will also go down in history the Obama was in charge when the government was shut down due to his dictatorial arrogance. His legacy will NOT be Obamacare, but his act of treason against the will if We, The People.

    No it’s not a lie i am not a liar my parents raised me better then that. I just didnt take the opportunities given to me when i was younger. I could have been just like my brothers and went to work in the plants and no be a foremen just like them, but i thought there was something better out there for me then that. I went to college and got my associates degree and just never went any further with it. Everyone has the chance to make a better live for themselves no matter where they live. when i was 10 to 15 my brother and i had a lawn mowing business and we made $300 to $600 a week. All it takes is drive and ambition to make it in America. But somewhere along the way of growing up i lost my way. Like i said before it my fault. All i can hope for now is that the with last $2000 i have in my day trading i can make it and become someone who can provide for myself and my wife.

    Clearly Obama is not negotiating – um hello??! The Republicans have disputed this act 40 times with no success – this was a way to really get Obamas attention by attaching the concerns to the ACA.. This didnt happen over night. Republicans are compromising – allowing to continue to fund the government and the “ACA” can continue to rule in a year. On top of that – there is not anything affordable about it – everyone’s insurance premiums is going up along with deductibles. There are are few good things – but some odd stipulations were added -

    Actually it did not go through the proper channels. If you return to it, the bill was illegally written by the senate amd sent to congress to pass. From there it went to court where Justice Roberts deemed it to be a tax to make it constitutional. From there it should have gone straight to congress to vote on the bills taxable subsidies. Instead it went straight back to the senate to add amendments then for Obama to sign into law. Now #1 senate is not allowed to write laws. 2. It was passed on a Christmas eve close to midnight. While under cover of darkness as to make sure not to piss off the nation. 3.the bill itself is to destroy the constitution of the United States by using the bill to void out amendment. So please do all of us a favor. Before you send out moronic thoughts,know the arguments that you are going to have and quit listening to anyone. That includes myself. I urge you to study and do history before following blindly into the night as sheeple do while being wrangled by wolves!

    Why is all of this on Obama. The Congress is the reason everything shut down because those stupid idiots can’t agree. I think Obama is trying to do the things that other presidents didn’t have the nerve to do! He is actually trying to help people! Don’t forget the fact that all the people affected by the shut down probably won’t get that pay back like Congress will when they decide to quite being so stuck up and get back to work!

    I looked into “Obama Care” for my mother who is in her 60′s and lives solely on social security. Yes she is currently on Medicaid but I was curious just to see how “affordable” it really was. My results were astounding. 75% of her annual pay is what it would cost for her not including deductibles. So please someone explain to me what makes that affordable health care? More like unaffordable health care. It is sad that we are losing our rights to make our own choices. I am not a Republican, I am not a Democrat, I AM AN AMERICAN and I am disgusted with both parties and what is going on in our nations capital.

    If anyone doesn’t believe there is a movement towards socialism and that the main stream media is not biased. I can’t help you. I believe there is a major push towards a NEW WORLD ORDER. I just wonder who will assist us in our effort to stay free from tyrannical governing. Read Thomas Jefferson’s quotes. They are prophetic of things to come and a warning for us to be aware. No President has shown such disregard for the Flag and constitution. He has no patriotism whatsoever. He uses politics as a weapon to punish the American people for opposing him by closing the war memorials then spits in the faces of the veterans and people by allowing an illegal immigrant rally on the mall.

He turned 69 this year and by god he paid into it since he was old enough to work. He earned the right to draw his Social security Check! Now he has a pacemaker/defibrillator. We have both had major heart surgery. I worked for years with 5 herniated discs in my back and now I can’t work. I now have degenerated Disc Disease. I guess I am one of the weak people also. I draw disability. You should not judge everyone by a few.

  • CT

    So, why dont we let the citizens of the U.S. vote on this. It shouldn’t matter what the house members and senate want to do. We the americans should be the ones to vote for impeachment or not! Unless I read something wrong. I try to stay out of politics but unfortunatly it is hard to stay out of it right now with the “clown” running this horrible circus.

  • The Patriot

    The American People need to remove every single politician from office from the President on down to the newest congressional aid. We are their boss and they work for us! We should be deciding what health insurance plans are available for them! We should be deciding where and how we spend our money. If I can’t afford something, guess what, I don’t buy it, especially if I take out a loan and can’t make the payment! Wake up America, these knuckleheads in D.C. don’t care about us or the future of the USA!

  • Doug

    One thing for sure, we are a more divided nation than I can remember in my 58 years of life. None of these comments matter to the other side. No one wants to admit they are wrong. Too much pride and ignorance. Try telling the devil and his followers or anyone else they are wrong and see how many agree. I don’t belong to any party. I can see what I want to see and not wear blinders. I can look for the truth and lies on all sides. If people can’t see the truth, it’s because they don’t want to. There is a lot out there if you really want to know and don’t limit your self to one side. You can throw being a Christian at me, and I don’t care if I misspell something or not politically correct. I have faults and admit it. I’m not the issue here. Neither is my spelling or grammar. I am an American. I care about this country. I have children and grandchildren that have to live with the decisions being made. These comments show exactly what is going on in politics. No one can give a little. No compromising. Instead it’s the blame game that gets us right where we are. We the people for the people by the people has been forgotten. I am a disabled veteran and served for 12 1/2 years. I have the right to care about America, and give my opinion.

  • Katjoy

    Can I just ask why it is so important to impart just what religion Obama is into this equation? So what if he really IS a different religion than a CHRISTIAN? He’s a politician, not a religious leader. Time to stop the idiotic mixing of politics and religion – so sick of this argument.

  • READ THIS

    The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper that covers global politics, business, technology, entertainment, science, health and media. It is accessible from over 190 countries worldwide – now including South Sudan.

    Our mission is to ridicule the timid ignorance which obstructs our progress, and promote intelligence – which presses forward.

    Q. Are your news stories real?

    A. No. Our stories are purely fictional. However they are meant to address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to real events happening in the world

  • Frooble Rippers

    Err it’s a joke… Lol Some people are so gullible!

  • RS

    How ignorant can people get?
    While any given president may have varying degrees of influence with any
    given congress, no president has managerial authority over Congress. Have people never heard of the “separation of
    powers”? The House Republicans shut down
    the government. This is like the
    arsonist seeking to charge the fire chief for failing to prevent the arsonist
    from setting a fire. And I see a remark
    about what people should do if the Senate does not impeach the President. “The House of Representatives . . . shall
    have the sole Power of Impeachment.”
    Article I, Section 2. The Senate
    can try impeachments only after the House has impeached, and the President
    cannot be convicted without concurrence of two thirds of the senators voting. Article I, Section 3.

  • Woodstuck

    Just do this! And if our Senators do not support the people on this then they also need to be removed ASAP.

  • RS

    This must be just a joke, but people are taking it seriously.

    These Nobama supporters are so funny… What has he done for you or that you liked? Besides lie, kill innocent people with drones, make illegal executive order laws and do nothing good for our Nation. NDAA, NSA IRS, Benghazi, and so much more. Please tell me what he has done that you supporters approve of? And, are you an American and not employed by the government… That skews things a bit.

  • Deltarose

    Sure did! Worse thing to ever happen to us-except BO!

  • mbrooks2k

    Impeaching the president won’t get this country back where it needs to be. Get rid of the republicans that caused the government shut down in the first place.If the Congress wasn’t so adamant about getting back at the president over Obama care. There would be no government shut down in fact if it had been any other president there would be no issues here.

  • John Folks

  • Kenneth Browning

    You do know, the “under god” part wasn’t added until 1954, right? You do know it was only added to indoctrine school children during the red scare, right? You do know the pledge wasn’t even adopted by the government until 1942, right? You do know the pledge was written by a socialist, right? You do know the pledge was something created to brainwash young kids with American nationalism, right? You do know it was something to be used during Columbus Day celebrations, right? Since I’ll assume you love to also go on about “In God We Trust,” you do know that was also made the motto to indoctrine young kids during the red scare?

    One more. You also do know most of the countries around the world who have left god out of everything have made the US the first world laughing stock in things such as education, healthcare, quality of life etc.? But yes, it’s because we’ve left god out of everything. Not because the priorities of the countries politics are screwed up, not because our government worries more about wall street than making sure people have healthcare or not because our government believes $1.5 million tomahawk missiles are more important than making sure there’s enough teachers to teach kids. It’s because god.

    Here’s the original pledge:
    I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

And, put our country so far in debt…well there are not enough words to put it all down right now, or I’d be up all night writing. Let’s just say, Obama Care is laughable and a sorry piece of work.

  • shawn

    I really don’t understand the ignorant people in this world everyone hollering the shut down is because of obama but if im not mistaken its the republican fault he don’t have to negoiate with them he is the leader of our country and PEOPLE need to respect him them the main reason why a lot of people don’t like him cus the color of his skin but if it was the other way around we wouldn’t hear people bashing him all day people are really sad

    You obviously have no odea what socialism is. Could you tell me what is so terrible about it? Could you explain to mw how countries that are socialist are doing much better than the US is right now? Why they have better healthcare, education, quality of life eyt? If it’s so bad why are they better in these areas? Of course, some turd on fox news called Obama it, so it must be bad, right? Or are you confusing communism with socialism, which aren’t the same thing?

    Could you tell me what Obama has done to the flag? Could you tell me Obama has done to the constitution that other presidents haven’t done?

    I’m curious, are you referring to the flag with Obama’s picture on it? Which by the way, isn’t an American flag. An American flag has 50 stars on it, that one dont.

    Is it any worst than this?

    this person wants her Social Security at retirement at 67 which she paid into with her own money all her employed life. She earned way more than she will ever be paid from it. It is not a sign of weakness. The Gov will automatically send her forms for it at her retirement birthday. It’s HERS.

  • Lacey

    People who agree with this are dumb. He is not the reason for this. The Republicans are! Saying that the reason is because Obama won’t reach their demands is just selfish. They are just as bad. Point blank. And he is worse than Hitler. Seriously??? He has not forced anyone to death. If anything, and I don’t completely support Obamacare, he is at least trying to save lives rather than take them. Ok, my rant done.

    Yes, but Obama wants people to have healthcare. Don’t you know how terrible that is? Oh, the humanity!

    You can’t be serious! Our president is responsible for this shut down. not the Republicans! And I’m not even a republican and I can see that. President Obama wants to dictate us into what he wants us to do! He is demanding and taking away what little the American poor, what one could barley call the middle class have to become even poorer. While he has a high paying job and great insurance that we the people pay for. You don’t see him ever cut back on any of their pay! To President Obama its his way or the highway and he does not care How many poor and middle class people he has to run over and squeeze blood out of to get his way. It’s totally the President choice not to give any on his demands on his baby the Dictating Obamacare Insurance that will not work to help us Americans except into the poorer house! please impeach him!!!!

  • Kenneth Browning

    But I’ll ask in a shorter post. You do know that “under god” wasn’t added to the pledge until 1954, right? It was just to indoctrinate kids during the red scare. Go read the constitution, which is far more important than the pledge, and tell me how many times the word god is in it.

Only a dictator would refuse to give us everything we want. Obama should be more than impeached — he should be in jail.”

    I can’t believe all the people who think this is real… You guys are funny.

  • Mr. Grogg

    You don’t think it’s constitutional for them to make it the law that you pay for something you don’t want? Seriously? Do you drive a car? What if you didn’t want car insurance? A lot of people don’t. Some people don’t get it. And, when they are caught, they are punished under the law. Why aren’t you screaming from the rooftops about that “contradiction” of the constitution? Oh, because it isn’t one. And neither is this. Before you start decrying violations of constitutional law, you may first want to learn about constitutional law. It will make you less likely to embarrass yourself again.

    By the way, you DO realize this article was satire, right? The Daily Currant is currently reporting that the Pope has resigned because he’s announced he’s gay, and that Dennis Rodman won the Nobel Peace Prize. Do you treat The Onion as a news source too?

  • Ric Jarvis

    I might have to disagree with you there Walter. I think Obama is looking for a reason to impose martial law. It’d enable him to suspend elections and stay in power and become the true dictator he has shown the potential to be.

  • best9rfan

    Not just impeached, but REMOVED from office AND put in jail for the rest of his life. Let him rot in jail, he will have plenty of time to think about everything he did wrong to the country. Once impeached and removed from office, remove ALL benefits he would have had for being a former POTUS.

    That’s not to say I’m content with the way things are. I’m as upset as the next person, but I also realize that there is no simple fix to this mess and that ultimately, we as citizens are responsible. Therefore, we are the ones who need to figure out how to fix this properly instead of resorting to knee jerk reactions that more than likely got us into the problems we have now.

We need to limit the amount of money corporations can give to elections, or eliminate it.

    Right now our entire country is being taken over by 22 percent of the population. The Tea Party is the dictators and are bringing down the entire nation down on them. We need to split the authority of ‘the speaker of the house’ into 3 elements. The president/The Senate Leader & The Speaker” So that we can have a vote on the entire house on wither they want to open the government or not, instead of catering to the 22%.

If I were given a day instead of just a few short minutes, I could make the case against him. He has done absolutely NOTHING for this country since his presidency — Obamacare is a farce!!! Everyone who tries to access it, can’t — and if they did, it would cost them more than they’ve ever paid for their own insurance! Obamacare is a ruse, and it is his baby! PEOPLE, YOU MUST REALIZE THAT THIS MAN IS NOT FOR YOU — HE IS HERE TO MAKE YOUR LIFE AND MY LIFE THE MOST MISERABLE AS POSSIBLE. HE MUST BE STOPPED!!!

I was reading all the ignorant posts, but yours caught my eye for you seemed a bit too adamant. While you are correct about the bill passing on Christmas eve, it only passed the Senate on Christmas eve. Guess where it had to go to next for approval (cue Jeopardy music).The following year in March, that would be March 2010, it passed the House. Upon passing the House it was signed into law by the president a couple days later. Oh and I’m quite sure any congressman/woman can introduce a law, so I’m not quite sure what you mean by “illegally written by the Senate”. Any of those bastards holding office can write a law.

    Just going to point out… The Republicans are holding the united states government for ransom… This is literally what is happening… The Traitors refusing to vote on a budget are committing high treason and can face a firing squad on the white house lawn… This is actual fact… Obama, is doing what the united states does, WE DO NOT NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORIST… Your republican GOP is a terrorist, who actually pays for and controls the tea party…

    Seriously… Firing Squad, white house lawn, treason. Obama is not commiting treason… Obama gets to preside over your terrorist movements literal death…

    Its plain idiotic that most of our government doesn’t pay attention to this law… Even better… any American can carry this out… We the people are allowed to remove the traitorous men and women in congress who are doing this… Not just remove them, but literally bring them to the white house to have them shot for treason LEGALLY.

    When an irate citizen demands that a disfavored public official be impeached, the citizen clearly intends for the official to be removed from office. This popular use of impeach as a synonym of “throw out” (even if by due process) does not accord with the legal meaning of the word. As recent history has shown, when a public official is impeached, that is, formally accused of wrongdoing, this is only the start of what can be a lengthy process that may or may not lead to the official’s removal from office. In strict usage, an official is impeached (accused), tried, and then convicted or acquitted.

    Considering the actions that are actually occurring in Washington, its far more likely that the House Republicans, and Eric Cantor in particular, will be brought up on charges of Treason… y’know, because the Republican Lead House put through a rules change that eliminated democracy therein and gave all powers to ending the shutdown to Eric Cantor, and him alone, as no one else, Republican or Democrat, can call the issue up for a vote to end the shutdown. Listen to Fox News and the GOP propaganda machine all you want, but know that the real criminal here is Eric Cantor, as he is the only one currently in a position to end the shutdown, and he is refusing to take those steps… Obama is powerless in this situation, because the President is not an all powerful position… its just one cog in the machine.

  • shelly

    I completely agree with you! I get so tired of trying to get people to actually make legitimate comments as to what he has actually done wrong, that I finally gave up. Everyone wants to pass around the false stories to discredit him, but where is the proof, where is the research? None, they pass it around because they don’t like him. Not sure what the deal is because during EVERY presidential election someone wins that someone did not vote for, but I have never seen or heard so many people be so rude and disrespectful towards a president before. Other countries look down on us for the negative reactions of many in this situation.

I pray that you never are faced with something that keeps you from working cause for some of us it’s not an option and it is a very hard thing emotionally to come to terms with when you have been use to working hard all your life and now you cant.

Who the fuck cares what religion he is this country has no religion if he was white and rupublican yall would be for everything he said. Why can’t people just treat him right. Give him credit for what he does and stop blaming your congressmen’s decisions on him.

  • Guest

    Clinton wasn’t the only President. Andrew Johnson was too. Both were impeached by the House, but the Senate did not vote to impeach, so they both stayed in office.

  • Frank

    Andrew Johnson was impeached also but never removed from office. Nixon resigned before his impeachment.

  • Savannah

    To add to this, when a someone is impeached the House of Representatives first has to vote on whether or not they will accuse (impeach) the person of “treason, bribery, or other high crimes or misdemeanors” by a 2/3 vote – at least 218 votes. THEN, the government official will go to trial as every person in this country is granted the right to when they are accused of a crime. After that, the Senate votes on whether or not they were guilty, and it has to be by a 2/3 supermajority vote – at least 67 people have to say the person is guilty. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were impeached and remained in office because they were acquitted. Nixon resigned before he could ever be impeached. So just because someone is impeached does not mean they will be removed from office and conviction on impeachment does not mean criminal prosecution. They would have to have another trial to convict the person of crimes and sentence them to jail.

  • Savannah

    You can rest assured that this will likely never happen as Obama only has until 2016 and the Constitution + the House and Senate and Supreme Court would never allow a President to gain a dictatorship. The term limits and checks and balances were put into place in this government to ensure that no one person has complete power over a country. Now, I’ll admit there is a lot of arm twisting from both sides – i.e. “I’ll veto your bill if you pass it.” “If you even try to veto this, we already have the 2/3 majority vote to override.”

    Obama is asking that everyone (literally everyone, not just a select group of people) has access to health care to help keep them alive. That doesn’t sound like someone who wants to kill everyone. I feel like the people who bitch about the health care thing are the people who are: 1. well-off with a well paying job with benefits who have never struggled a day in their life and 2. have never been seriously ill without having insurance necessary to seek medical attention, and in both cases it’s an inability to to realize that not everyone has the exact same life as yours or the same opportunities. Just because you have health insurance does not mean everyone can get on insurance and some people are struggling just to get by at the only job they can find to get food on their table for themselves and their children. “Obamacare” would be an alternative to the Social Security (which includes insurance for people who cannot have it) that you all bitch about so much.

  • Jeffrey Spiva

    The house of congress is were laws are written and the senate does the amending or approval or denials then sends it ip yo the president or back to congress to be tweaked or reworked. As for the aca violating or constitutional rights,let me explain. First off your freedom of choice has just been negated by wether you choose to have insurance or not. The 4th amendment is due to under this law you no longer have a right to be secure in your person. 1st amendment was just ratified as we can no longer assemble peacefully. They also ratified the 5th amendment claiming we no longer have the right to remain silent ruled from the supreme courts. Now they are back to focussing on the 2nd amendment. If they get that one they will have all of them follow very easy from there and Obama will reign King,at which point they can introduce their on Communist bill of right and rule supreme under a dictatorship. By.all means at this point with the sheeple flow that we have in this country its happening faster than we think. To b fair in me saying this i also have to say, they all need to go and we need to have term limits and no lifetime subsidies for politicians. That means Republicans and Democrats, Independents across the board. Like i stated in my first post. Do not take my word study what this law does to our freedoms and livelyhood. Then if it starts to make you shiver and piss you off then you will truly know what is going on . At which point you will no longer be a sheeple being led blindly to the slaughter.

    I think that President Obama’s time in office has been a three-ring circus of gridlock, bad decisions, and broken promises- but being bad at your job is not grounds for impeachment. Some of my fellow conservatives have taken leave of their senses.

  • Will Bascue

    The word “impeachment” derives from Latin roots expressing the idea of becoming caught or entrapped, and has analogues in the modern French verb empêcher (to prevent) and the modern English impede. Medieval popular etymology also associated it (wrongly) with derivations from the Latin impetere (to attack). (In its more frequent and more technical usage, impeachment of a person in the role of a witness is the act of challenging the honesty or credibility of that person.)

    The process should not be confused with a recall election. A recall election is usually initiated by voters and can be based on “political charges”, for example mismanagement, whereas impeachment is initiated by a constitutional body (usually a legislative body) and is usually, but not always, based on an indictable offense. The process of removing the official is also different.

    Impeachment was first used in the British political system. Specifically, the process was first used by the English “Good Parliament” against Baron Latimer in the second half of the 14th century. Following the British example, the constitutions of Virginia (1776), Massachusetts (1780) and other states thereafter adopted the impeachment mechanism; however, they restricted the punishment to removal of the official from office. In private organizations, a motion to impeach can be used to prefer charges.[1

  • Will Bascue

    In the United Kingdom, it is the House of Commons that holds the power of initiating an impeachment. Any member may make accusations of any crime. The member must support the charges with evidence and move for impeachment. If the Commons carries the motion, the mover receives orders to go to the bar at the House of Lords and to impeach the accused “in the name of the House of Commons, and all the commons of the United Kingdom.”

    The mover must tell the Lords that the House of Commons will, in due time, exhibit particular articles against the accused, and make good the same. The Commons then usually selects a committee to draw up the charges and create an “Article of Impeachment” for each. (In the case of Warren Hastings, however, the drawing up of the articles preceded the formal impeachment.) Once the committee has delivered the articles to the Lords, replies go between the accused and the Commons via the Lords. If the Commons have impeached a peer, the Lords take custody of the accused, otherwise custody goes to Black Rod. The accused remains in custody unless the Lords allow bail. The Lords set a date for the trial while the Commons appoints managers, who act as prosecutors in the trial. The accused may defend by counsel.

    The House of Lords hears the case. The procedure used to be that the Lord Chancellor presided (or the Lord High Steward if the defendant was a peer); but this was when the Lord Chancellor was both the Lords’ presiding officer and head of the judiciary of England and Wales. Since both these roles were removed from that office by the Constitutional Reform Act 2005, which created the Lord Speaker to preside over the Lords and made the Lord Chief Justice head of the judiciary, it is not certain who would preside over an impeachment trial today. If Parliament is not in session, then the trial is conducted by a “Court of the Lord High Steward” instead of the House of Lords (even if the defendant is not a peer). The differences between this court and the House of Lords are that in the House all of the peers are judges of both law and fact, whereas in the Court the Lord High Steward is the sole judge of law and the peers decide the facts only; and the bishops are not entitled to sit and vote in the Court.[3]

    The hearing resembles an ordinary trial: both sides may call witnesses and present evidence. At the end of the hearing the lords vote on the verdict, which is decided by a simple majority, one charge at a time. Upon being called, a lord must rise and declare “guilty, upon my honour” or “not guilty, upon my honour”. After voting on all of the articles has taken place, and if the Lords find the defendant guilty, the Commons may move for judgment; the Lords may not declare the punishment until the Commons have so moved. The Lords may then decide whatever punishment they find fit, within the law. A royal pardon cannot excuse the defendant from trial, but a pardon may reprieve a convicted defendant. However, a pardon cannot override a decision to remove the defendant from the public office they hold.

  • Will Bascue

    Impeachable offenses[edit]
    In the United States, impeachment can occur both at the federal and state level. The Constitution defines impeachment at the federal level and limits impeachment to “The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States” who may be impeached and removed only for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors”.[9] Several commentators have suggested that Congress alone may decide for itself what constitutes a “high crime or misdemeanor” especially since Nixon v. United States stated that the Supreme Court did not have the authority to determine whether the Senate properly “tried” a defendant.[citation needed] In 1970, then-House Minority Leader Gerald R. Ford defined the criterion as he saw it: “An impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history.”[10] Four years later, Gerald Ford would become president when PresidentRichard Nixon resigned under the threat of impeachment.

    This is the way I see it ……YES get rid of the Obama……Then as a country demand that our government take their pay checks for one whole year and put them toward the deficite. that they have created themselves. We as a country would be better off. But you will not see any of them doing with out their money while those of us not far from retirement may not get S.S. While our men and women of the armed forces are wondering if they will get paid for the service they are providing for this country. Obama needs to be more then impeached. We as a nation need to start a petition to have Obama removed from office now, not when he decides to leave. This is just my opinion and like so many americans our thought and voices don’t mean a f**king thing. We are suppose to be pawns on a chess board for whom ever in government to do with as they want. IT IS TIME FOR US AS A NATION TO STAND UP TAKE BACK OUR CONSITUTION, OUR RIGHTS. Put the pledge and pray back in to schools, demand our right to bare arms and our right of free speech. But this can not happen as long as we sit by and let our government use us for puppets.

    I just keep my mouth shut about this devilish man anymore. his “followers” stick by him, which is ok but they don’t quite understand what’s going on. Just wait until FEMA comes for you people. Invading your house, seizing your property, shipping you off to FEMA camps. It’s gonna happen. & Martial Law, yep that’s headed our way too. Just wait, it’s coming. We haven’t hit rock bottom yet, but we’re almost there.

    I don’t just want him Impeached, I want him arrested or Fraud, War Crimes against the American People and the World,Embezzlement of the American People’s Money for his own gain, and everything else he has done. I want his Mooshell, Holder, Biden, McCain, and every other piece of chit that has been working with him arrested as well.. They all need to have their bank accounts FROZEN and the money returned to the American People. I want them tried for their crimes and executed for their treason under Constitutional Law… THIS IS OUR COUNTRY NOT HIS !!!!!!!!!

  • JD

    While I am certain of the scandalous administration, and would like nothing more than to see Obama removed from office, this article is not very well written. It lacks some factual information, and stretches some of its “facts” to the point of lies. Besides, both sides are corrupt, both sides are working for the same corporations. Removing the standing President will not solve our problems. I believe that everyone is to blame.

  • Dtbest

    Sen. Cruz is a babbling moron. “Worse than Hitler”. Really? When’s the last time Obama ordered mass genocide? High treason? The republicans are the ones who held the budget hostage. Impeach themselves that be the best use of our money.

  • Brandon Lyon

    House resolution 368 made it so that only the majority leader of the house (cantor a repbulican) can call a vote to reopen and fund the govt. This was passed to change house rule 22 clause 4 that would allow any member to call the vote. This was passed 3 days before the shutdown. So…take a guess who planned the whole thing and now wont let anyone change it?

    What crime did he commit?

    The Senate doesn’t impeach, the Senate convicts, a quick read of the Constitution would tell you that but like all you types you want to scream CONSTITUTION without actually reading the damn thing… and no you won’t, you will sit there and whine and bitch like you’ve always done.

    Shawb was successful in getting everyone off of the subject. Congrats Shawb, you made the people look away.

  • Scott Stiffler

    I totally agree with you. He has done what was expected of him with what he was left, the war, banks being bailed out, wall street crumbling, all of this happened before he took office, all of this is what is the cause of our economic state, yet Obama is being blamed for it. Obama care has been put into effect because the majority voted for it not because just said it would be. Grow up people, and handle this like adults, and put it up to vote again like it is supposed to be. Do not shut the government down and blame it on Obama.

  • Gavin Pritchard

    Drone strikes on civilians. Spying on the american populace out of fear of terrorism. Yet obama is stll better than mitt romney would have been. We would be on the verge of economic collapse if we had republicans in office.

  • Joey Aldridge

    I suggest you look up what impeach means and read the Constitution, even if a public official is impeached then voted to be removed it is no assurance of judicial charges against them and as such no assurance of “prison”. Read, damn you all, read.

    as many have said, to impeach is to bring to trial. this person, obama is a pseudonym…real name being barry soetoro, has spit in the face of America, and all it’s citizens. and now spit in the face of our veterans….the people who fought bravely to protect our nation, as well as our world allies from hostile aggression, and beyond that, has CAUSED our volunteer soldiers to commit atrocities against defenseless citizens of foreign countries who have never risen against the United States, and this, all to promote a globalist agenda. he has forged his legacy, and it will be having made America the largest illegal drug producer, and money launderer in history, that with the aid of unwilling soldiers…the greatest perpetrator of fraud through illegal banker bail outs….and the second greatest murderer of innocent civilians through drones and illegal occupations, next to hitler, but his policies, if allowed to continue, would have made hitler blush in insignificance…it is well time, and far past to send this man to his just deserts, whether it be determined to be removal, and shame, or the gallows….let the people decide….

    It does not matter by choice or by force Obama needs to be removed from office. He can not lead us down this road no longer. When his administration choose illegal aliens over the American people and not allowing death benefits for military families he turned himself into an enemy of this country. Every military personal is sworn into service to protect the U.S. Constitutions from enemies both foreign and domestic. All Vets have a right to stand up for this country and Obama crossed that line closing vet memorials and trying to hurt military families. THIS IS JUST WRONG.

  • Lee Jacks

    Are you people educated on how the Government truly works or are you so bent out of shape on trying to find every little thing that the president does wrong that you just put stuff up with out at least doing SOME form of research. President Obama did not make the decision to NOT allow death benefits. When the bill was signed for military to still be paid the death benefits were expected to be apart of that but since it was not put in writing it was not upheld. So when the government shut down the funding went along with it. In order for the money to be used a bill had to be established allowing funding to be allocated for the use of benefits. Initially the government was going to go with a private charity company that offered to cover the cost of the benefits. When this knowledge was brought to the President attention he pushed the issue to have a resolution. Also as I hope you would know bills are originated in the house the President is just the final approving factor in which he signed to allow families to receive benefits so your point there by is null in void. Go back to the drawing board to find another issue you dnt like about the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!!!

  • Arnie Wolf

    Actually Balack Obama cannot be impeached as he was never vetted as an American citizen eligible to become POTUS. The mechanism for removing Obama is found in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.

    To Whit

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
    that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,
    that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That
    to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving
    their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any
    form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of
    the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government,
    laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in
    such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and
    happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long
    established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and
    accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to
    suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by
    abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train
    of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a
    design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it
    is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards
    for their future security.

  • Lee Saffold

    It is about time! I thank the republican leaders that have
    the courage to fight against this type of tyranny especially when it seems that
    the fight is against insurmountable odds. At least someone is trying to do what
    a large number of Americans want done. The
    fact that this process is now underway is a warning to all who would attempt to
    “rule” rather than serve the American people in this government of
    the people, by the people, and for the people.
    Whether it will succeed in the senate is not as important as the fact
    that the possibility of impeachment is always there to check the behavior of
    anyone attempting to “rule” over us against our will! When Americans elect a president they elect
    one to serve the people, we do not elect a king to rule over us. The impeachment process is the very
    embodiment of that concept and exists for the very purpose of maintaining the
    power and control of the people over the federal government. Let the process take its course and let the
    people have their say and keep the pressure on and never let up. We simply refuse to have a dictator over us
    and this process lets us remind the president, and all future presidents, of
    that simple fact! This presidents treachery
    evidenced by his learning of the attacks on the embassy in Benghazi at 5 pm and
    going to bed at 8 pm and sleeping without any concern whatsoever about the
    American lives that were at stake in this attack and leaving them vulnerable
    calling for help and receiving none resulting in the loss of 4 American lives
    and his recent attempt to block our WWII veterans from visiting a memorial in
    Washington built in their honor when it cast him the government more money to
    do so then to leave it open must receive an adequate response from the American
    people. The NSA spying on the American people and the IRS deliberately
    targeting conservative groups who oppose the President are additional crimes
    against the people of this country that deserve a fitting response from the
    people. And it is my opinion that impeachment is the proper response to such
    behavior by an American President. Such treasonous behavior by a sitting President
    definitely “rises to the level” of “high crimes and misdemeanors” worthy of
    impeachment!

    By all means, we should get rid of them, but that would only help if we had people that could take over without falling into the same depravity that current members of Congress have.
    It’s not a simple process and it’s not a fast one either. But to get real change we have to work from the ground up instead of working from the top down. That means we have to start at the State levels and start vetting candidates by actual policy stances and not by their ability to give vague answers or their stances social issues.

    You also know you can only be charged with treason during war. Also, to be proven guilty of treason they must prove you intentionally harmed the state. Unintentional consequences of an action that result in harming the state cannot be tried for treason.

  • Drew

    No, you’re just ignorant. The impeachment process that was intended to be used as a tool for investigative freedom. Just because the word has become bastardized and the public is ignorant does not change what impeachment actually is. It wasn’t intended to become a rare thing, it’s a check. Impeachment does not necessarily mean a desire to remove from office. There are many calling for such action, knowing that removal wouldn’t occur. I’m not one of those, but don’t spread your ignorance as fact.

    that simple fact! This presidents treachery
    evidenced by his learning of the attacks on the embassy in Benghazi at 5 pm and
    going to bed at 8 pm and sleeping without any concern whatsoever about the
    American lives that were at stake in this attack and leaving them vulnerable
    calling for help and receiving none resulting in the loss of 4 American lives
    and his recent attempt to block our WWII veterans from visiting a memorial in
    Washington built in their honor when it cost the government more money to do so
    than to leave it open must receive an adequate response from the American people.
    The NSA spying on the American people and the IRS deliberately targeting
    conservative groups who oppose the President are additional crimes against the people
    of this country that deserve a fitting response from the people. And it is my
    opinion that impeachment is the proper response to such behavior by an American
    President. Such treasonous behavior by a sitting President definitely “rises to
    the level” of “high crimes and misdemeanors” worthy of impeachment!

  • pmilla

    I’m not a fan of Obama. However, comparing him to Hitler is one of the extremes that causes a loss of credibility to the cause. Lots of mistakes. Lots of ridiculous scandals. His ideology scares me. But lets compare him to what matters – other presidents. He is making enough mistakes that there is no need to sensationalize him. Just keep speaking truth with out hyperbole so the truth doesn’t get lost in the extras. Facts speak louder alone.

  • Annette Gardner

    I think that government has too much power as it is now. I am ashamed that this country is on the verge of another civil dispute. I don’t care about republicans or democrats. It’s all about who can do the job and none of the politicians are doing their job. All of them are VOTED in and they all will come up for re-election. I don’t see them getting voted back in office – none of them! I can’t speak for everyone but I do not feel that anyone has done what my tax dollars are paying for. If the government is “shut down” then why are taxes still coming out of my check. If they’re not going to do their jobs, what am I paying for? I hope Obama gets impeached and removed from office along with everyone else that has played a part in getting this country to this point. It’s not one man’s fault but a combination of people that seem to only be out for themselves in office. This country as a whole has forgotten what this country was founded on. We have lost our way from our founding principles and maybe we all need to go back and actually read the declaration of independence because I truly don’t think this is what our founding fathers had in mind when they wrote it. We all need a reality check!!!!!

    Then why is there a government shut down idiot??? No the house did not agree to let the Obamacare go thru…they rejected the proposal that the senate established on numerous occasions. The house refused to establish a budget to fund the Affordable healthcare act

  • Wellstone

    No, silly. He has to be CONVICTED in a trial by the Senate first. Back to 6th grade for you.

  • bart

    The point is he can not repeal the Obamacare because it is already a law voted and passed by these same people–It is another waste of taxpayer money–The whole darn lot of them should get out of there and common people need to raise up and change things not these stupid rich people who live in country clubs. Obamacare is a law now..the only thing that should have been done was the people should have been able to vote on it.

  • Ron An Loni Williams

    If you actually keep up with the news Obama stated that he was going to VITO any bill passed if his medical bill was not passed the way he wanted it to stay….Keep up with how long it took him to state that he was going to take care of the families of the departed soldiers….Plus the death benefits are something he could have signed with executive orders and passed instead of waiting for a while before saying he was going to take care of the families. So unless you are a VET you don’t know what they are going thru!!!!

  • cherykie

    I’m all for Impeachment if he is removed from office and imprisoned for all his acts of treason- but this , the government shutdown, is just stupid. EVERYBODY is involved in the shutdown! He needs to be brought up on charges that he alone owns, and there is a long list of dirty laundry to charge him with.

  • Wellstone

    No one is demanding this except for TeaParty extremists and Conservative dittohead knuckledraggers.

  • Lady Lar

    Good for a sad laugh! And instead of focusing on the definition of “impeach”, I looked up what you pretend Bachmann said- “..this ‘cabal’ will do anything to stay in power.” A cabal is “.. a group secretly united to bring about an overturn in public affairs…” My goodness, that would be the pot calling the kettle black!!!! But this could ring true, as these tea twits dwell in Delusional Auda City. I wish I could meet one so I could laugh and point, but all my friends are rationale and sane.

  • kathy

    That is not going to happen! We all pay for someone else. If someone doesn’t have children, they still have to pay taxes that support schools and the programs that go with it. We pay for all the government programs. That money comes from taxes confiscated from the working peons. Most people seem to think the government has money, it does not! IT TAKES FROM THE WORKING PEOPLE.
    Better that you complain about their money being used to support ILLEGAL ALIENS in this country. And, the welfare recipients, generation after generation, in some families! Just take a look at what their taxes are being used to support. Their paying into THEIR social security fund will be the least of your worries!

  • Mike Connie Duncan Norrell

    OK, IF he is impeached on charges of TREASON, how can he remain in office? The punishment for TREASON is either DEATH or LONG IMPRISONMENT. The only way to avoid such is that he be pardoned for any crimes stemming from his actions while in office, by the incoming president. Some members of Congress may truly be in love with this (very bad) man, but when/if it comes down to his head or theirs on the chopping block, they will GLADLY sacrifice him to save themselves. Yes, I think the Washington politicians can feel a shift in the dynamic of politics, but they are too arrogant to believe that their power can be stripped from them. They have forgotten that they SERVE and CONTINUE TO SERVE at the PLEASURE of WE THE PEOPLE….No matter the outcome of any impeachment proceedings against obama, there NEEDS to be a BIG change of personnel in Washington, not to more of the same, not to people who know how to “work Washington”, but to people who can MAKE WASHINGTON WORK.

  • Lee Jacks

    No I am not a VET YET…Im currently deployed and still actively fighting for this country…but I see the country needs a fall guy when in retrospect this great House that we have truly held the key and they are the reason we are in this situation to begin with…The president has agreed to renegotiate to open up the government but to no avail the house keeps stalling not to mention they themselves have established that only the Republican leader of the house can decide to open up the government rather than any member of the house as it was originally established…this goes a lot deeper than a medical bill being passed and we all know it.

  • Tina Thorpe

    Wellstone, the economy hasn’t been “healthy” since Obama started giving money over to “clean energy” corporations that went belly up (actually before then, but that definitely put us in a worse position). I don’t know where you get your funny math, but why don’t you factor in all the new welfare recipients and people on disability that keep steadily increasing. Let’s face it folks, Obama is getting exactly what he wanted in the first place – Socialism! I work my rear off and a huge chunk of my money goes to people who sit on theirs and do NOTHING. Tell you what Wellstone, if we “right-wing” “knuckle-dragger” idiots are so wrong, why don’t you tell us why the average welfare recipient actually gets better benefits than the average social security recipient? I know a few of both … my social security friends don’t have smart phones or money to buy cigarettes, they have terrible health coverage (that they pay for btw). Meanwhile, the Obama welfare crowd gets free healthcare, free groceries and an Obama Phone! Most would be better off to quit their jobs and go on the dole … thank God there are people still out there with good morals that have too much pride to do so.

The White House is getting smelly and its not just from personal hygiene!!

  • jon

    Dear Gawd in heaven….impeach means to accuse, and be brought forth to a court to address charges. That court would be the congress, which is BOTH the senate and house of representatives….GOT THAT PART?? then BOTH houses vote on whether OBAMA’S TREASONOUS TRAITOROUS EVIL FILTHY ANTI AMERICAN GUTTER SCUM ACTS….are illegal….and then we hang him by the neck until dead when he is convicted according to this very lovely law, whether you like the nasty traitor, or not, just because you’re stupid……

    Title 18 U.S. Code section 2381

    open court of law if you fail to timely move to protect and defend the

No Gerrymandered House of Representatives is going to remove him. Impeachment will This will never happen because you have enough Republicans, 45, who represent “purple” Districts whose constituents won’t stand for this foolishness. With the 201 Democrats in the House that’s more than enough to exceed 2/3 of 435 (Do Your Own Arithmetic Genious).

    because I paid into it for 50 years? and would be willing to take a lump sum of what I paid in. It’s easy to talk crap if you have nothing invested. SS is just like anything else the government handles, they mismanage it and then blame someone else for it. The buck stops at Congress, they run the committees, or should I say mismanage again? The problems are all based on years of “we can print money as long as we want” regardless of the consequences, well we can’t, it doesn’t work, and one doesn’t have to be a genius to figure it out. The politicians have long figured out that as long as they can keep us divided they will continue to rule us. Problem with that is that they are there to serve the folks that elected them, not the other way around. The country is the UNITED States, not the divided states, we have achieved our greatness by working together, and unless we get back to that we are lost. Bet on it.

    Shouldnt they concentrate on just getting the government reopened rather than adding another issue to the table!! I am soo sick of how they blame the president when its not just the president it is the people in office that arent willing to help the American Public and are only doing what is best for themselves. People need to realize that he is not the only one who runs this government if he was then why do we vote people into office?… They just need to come to an agreement and get the government reopened stopping pointing fingers and just get something done rather than go back and forth on who is right or wrong. If we didnt have the “title” Republicans, Democrats, etc i think life would be a lot easier. I really feel that if you are defined by a party you are obligated to vote for what your party stands for instead of what you feel is right or wrong.

  • Betty Meyers Kenny Taylor

    You said “The U.S. federal government shut down on Oct. 1 after House Republicans refused to fund it unless President Obama agreed to repeal his signature health care reform, the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.”

    So it sn’t the President it is the House.

    The Republicans refuse because the rich doesn’t want a higher tax rate. They could careless if american’s has health benefits, food or jobs as long as they don’t have to pay higher taxes.

    I think it’s like Robin Hood taking from the rich and giving to the poor. That’s what Obama wants for the american’s. He wants the poor to be able to have the medical benefits the rich has.

    If this impeachment goes through it will be because the republicans made the poor american suffer and it’s better to have it the way it has always been then to have nothing at all.

    On the other Hand I am with the republicans that the Obamacare should be a choice and not a law.

So, unless these folks can find an intern that will claim to have given BO a BJ, they’re just pissin’ in the wind… AGAIN!

    Both were impeached by the house. At that point impeachment was finished.

    the senate decides the punishment of the person impeached.

    In the case of Billy Clinton and Johnson, the Senate decided upon no punishment.The punishment can range from a verbal or written reprimand to removal from office to Prison time. Or nothing.

    Haven’t you ever heard the old saying, The House impeaches, The senate deposes?

    Sheesh?

    Go back to School.

  • Savory

    this article is a joke right?? Phucking morons. All of the HOR GOP should be fired. This HAS to be a satire post?!?! And Bill Moss, you sound ridiculous. He’s not going to get impeached b/c he didn’t do anything wrong you delusional racist.

  • Wowyouaredumb

    My question has remained the same the whole time. For years now, Democrats have said that Republicans favored big business over average people, and they did based on the laws that were passed, most importantly that involving Citizens United. So why are those same Republicans now mad when a Democrat caters to big business. I am not taking a side on the issue as a whole, but I do not see the logic used by the Republicans. Also, they have wanted to repeal Obamacare, many times over. Specifically, prior to the shut down, they wanted to either defund it or have the one year postponement.

  • chamuiel

    I don’t think they know how.

  • Drumguy

    Wow, it’s scary how believable this one is! I’m sure many people will think it’s real!

  • chamuiel

    B.S. Not if the Senate refuses to give him any kind of punishment.

    I cannot believe that people are so ignorant over the impeachment process.

    The house can impeach obama 20 times.

    It means nothing if the senate refuses to punish.

  • ChristCrusader

    would like to see document forgery in there re: birth certificate, etc.

  • chamuiel

    Nope, not if the Senate refuses to remove him, or punish him.

    Do you really think Harry Reid and the Democrats in the Senate (The majority) will punish obama in any way?

    Seriously!

  • Fletch

    Obama is worse than Hitler? He should be put in jail? Maybe if the Republicans didn’t so vehemently oppose its leaders, then we might have some actual peace and understanding in our government. Name-calling isn’t going to get you anywhere, Cruz.
    And what would impeaching Obama really do? Isn’t Biden on board with Obama-care just as much as Obama? I personally think both sides are at fault, but impeachment is beyond extreme.

  • chamuiel

    Back to 6th grade for you.

    the House impeaches obama.

    The senate punishes him.

    If they (senate) do not punish him, it does not matter how many times he is impeached.

    Why is this so difficult for so many of you to understand?

    first the House impeaches, then the senate punishes.

    there is no trial in the senate first. Sheesh!

    address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to
    real events happening in the world

  • Dave Montgomery

    Obammy will not be removed from office unless Dims lose control of the House and Senate in 2014. But, the list of “high crimes and misdemeanors” will be ready and hanging over his presidency until he is out of office. And, at minimum, a formal public record for all time. So, list the charges and pursue it!

  • Peanut

    that pretty much sums it up, yup. let me guess… you qualify for welfare & obamacare subsidies, right? and it has NOTHING to do with him being black or white, he’s the antichrist regardless of color & i, personally, at this point would be just as happy with assassination proceedings as impeachment proceedings

    You need to stop watching mainstream media news which is nothing more than government propaganda. Lord Barry Obama is a destructive little baby who works for multinational corporations, and banks to install a police state. Although he poses as a socialist to appease his liberal lovers. All Americans should unite to impeach this traitor!

  • chamuiel

    It has nothing to do with weak people.

    there are many people on S.S. who are not weak.

    What you said is the same thing if I said all Shawb’s are idiots.

    I thought you would have changed to Napoleon or woody woodpecker by now.

  • ctleng76

    The only reason “most people” blame the GOP, is because these same people rely on the main stream media for their news. They are being led to believe that the GOP caused the shutdown. WHhn in reality it was the Senate and the president that allowed the shutdown to occur by not negotiating.

    Yes Steve we all know this. The last paragraph states, “We probably won’t be successful,” admits Ted Cruz, one of the few Republicans in the Senate supporting the impeachment process. “But we have to try. Reading and comprehension is like first grade studies.

  • Daniel Hutchens

    Well, let’s start with Michele Bachmann. Who said about the govt shutdown, “It’s exactly what we wanted, and we got it,” and who now wants to impeach Obama over it. Or how about her little comment that Obama is about to bring about the end of the world, but that for Christians “rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice.” That’s some textbook extremism right there. And the whole govt shutdown fiasco is knuckledraggin’ 101.

  • Steve McElroy

    Oh Bring America back, first of all I don’t know what we’re bringing America back from but then again I’m a patriot. Secondly, this article is from a satirical site so quoting it, and then acting intellectually superior about it makes you look even more silly, Thirdly, my response was to the people who are commenting on said fake article stating that impeachment would kick Obama out of the White House, which you probably would have realized if you used “reading and comprehension.”

  • Steve McElroy

    And working with Tea Party Republican is like working with children. They read Dr. Suess and they throw tantrums when they don’t get their way.

  • Paul Holland

    This will only bring on the prophecy by Maxinne Waters that will result in Marshall Law imposed on American citizens. This is the only way for the democrats to avoid a slaughter in 2014 elections after the reality of Obamacare sinks in to the national public, if the MSM has the guts to report the truth. For example, numbers I have heard to date is that 60,000 people have registered for Obamacare, but “not” purchased. only 5,000 have actually purchased for a less than 10% sign up. The reality is the exchange does not allow you to see the true costs before the government subsidies are applied. This is the lie. And the astronomical deductions before insurance kicks in is very unreasonable for the typical middle class.
    The truth will set us free from the dictator and liar in chief, not to mention the “barrycade” police that put up obstructions to the memorials for our veterans. May God, not allah, help the USA.

  • Chell

    “This guy is worse than Hitler” Only a republican would have the audacity to make such a heinous comparison.

Not really ever been much of an Obama fan either, but some Republicans….wow their bigotry and ineptitude of how a government should work seriously still shocks me.

  • Ms. T

    Wow. It is so funny, to me, how “We the People of United States of America” have it SO BAD, it is horrible to be living here, not. (Forgetting about the other countries and their people that are killing each other over the smallest things and how some children are left without families and food, for the moment). How, because of our president we are now “damaged”. Because of 1 man we are not Untied. Hmm, I honestly feel we are not United because of our government and the childish temper tantrums that are taking place within itself. Listening to the news and reading the reports makes me want to send everyone to a corner for a major TIME OUT! Since the want to act like children, they should be treated as such. Pity on me for believing I live in the country that gives us the ability to have our own choices (including the president). I guess that only applies to a selected few. Silly of me to think we live in a somewhat land of the free. It saddens me to know that the United States main worry is to make it’s own people suffer. I do not care who is right or wrong anymore, but to be considered as an adults in positions of power and cannot come to an agreement between themselves worries me more and more. I have children growing up and to worry about my children’s future because of this STUPID tug of war that is going on upsets me. I think it is wrong to hurt the people of the united states by taking away their jobs to support their families. To feed their children and keep a roof over their heads. I believe in fighting for what is right but when it comes down to the people, (without us their would not be a United States of America (just to point that out) we should be the absolute last option for the government to hurt. Whether it is the doing on either side. As the people we need to remember what the word UNITED me and stop letting the people in power be so SELFISH. I promise you this at night the sleep fine because the know that they are going to have food to feed their children and will still have a roof over their heads no matter what the out come will be. Just my opinion :)

I think what he has done to this country is wrong. I never voted for him and feel the ones who did was not paying attention to the facts. I agree with you 100% but just because someone is on welfare and needs help from government agencies does not mean they agree with what he is doing. Please do not put everyone in that category.

  • Gwen Hoover

    The last President to be “Impeached” AND leave office was Richard Nixon. The only reason he quietly left office after his impeachment proceedings was he could not bear the shame that impeachment brought. How many times were impeachment proceedings brought against Bill Clinton and he did not budge and served his full term. So, in my opinion, impeachment proceedings are another big waste of Taxpayer money! Find a method to effectively remove him or stop with the pitchforks and torches! I’m afraid his damage has already been done!

    Um…..this article is a satire. To save you any argument, this whole website is satire.

  • NOLAite

    Umm, I hope everyone realizes what trash this article is. The Republicans are the ones who are holding the government hostage. Republicans shut down the government by refusing to vote until they get their way (which is not what the American people want, as evidenced by the passing of the Healthcare Act).

    The irony burns… Michelle Bacchman has the nerve to call for the impeachment of Obama because he “let” the government shutdown?? She is literally blaming him for something her party is blatantly, outright doing.

    The GOP will be the ruin of this country.

  • DublinIreland

    I know what it means and those who think it means immediately “throw the bum out” will soon find out what it means. Clinton was impeached, but remained in office. However, I think Obama needs to be brought to heel and maybe this will do it and maybe not.

  • Anke Cheney

    Well, it would be a shame if this were a joke…it’s long overdue. I should also have added the funding/arming of al Qaeda groups (Muslim Brotherhood, Syrian Rebels). I don’t believe that there has EVER been a President more deserving of Impeachment, and the first to be convicted, than this man!

    who really cares what the precise definition of ‘impeach’ means? We all know what outcome is desired…and we need to overcome the defeatest attitude saying it can’t work because of the number of democrats – say the outcome will bring about change, believe it, and then the result will be more positive.

    Honestly, the same avid democrats will keep him office, they made a mistake once by voting him in office.

My thoughts are this….he didn’t deserve a first chance, why would anyone give him a second chance? Makes no sense! He won’t be impeached OR removed from office because the same thick headed people will keep him in!! Our nation is doomed and he is just a tool! Face it. We no longer have our rights, we don’t have a voice. They were removed a while back!

    millions to hide it. They especially can’t believe we were stupid enoung to elect him twice and we still do not know WHO he is. It is hard to get proof of the things he has done to America because he goes on TV and talks about the bad things that “the government” has done as if he is an outsider & not the leader (or is suppose to be the leader)..

  • BD

    Impeachment only validates what he has done so far, you cannot impeach someone who is not constitutionally eligible for the position they hold. The proper recourse is for the federal marshals to arrest & incarcerate the usurper, try him in a court of law for high crimes against the country & upon conviction, execution as a proper penalty. He is still an Indonesian citizen so he cannot be charged with treason. Also, most of congress, Hillary, Holder & others in this administration are accomplices & should be charged as such.

  • BushMaster63

    That is part of the “agenda”…to get more Americans on the public dole so that the gov’t has absolute control over most of the population. People would be much better served to stop listening to the flapping gums of liars and to just open their eyes and look to actions…the Bible says that the tongue is the most vile part of human anatomy…so true…if one really wants to understand another’s true intent you must look to their actions. The fact of the matter is this…this current regime has no interest in preserving this country…because if they get what they want then in having most on the public dole, and then add amnesty and O’bummercare…who will be left to pay the costs via taxes? The bottom line is this…both the right and left are fully complicit in this outcome…so when you think of the enemy understand that the two party system was designed to divide the country in 2. Our rights do not come from the gov’t, nor the Constitution, but from God…and the Constitution was written to protect those God given, inalienable rights…The fed gov’t’s only real task is to protect this country, and it’s people, from foreign threats to our sovereignty…but they are now our biggest threat to it!!!

  • Kristy

    Impeachment is a formal process in which an official is accused of unlawful activity, the outcome of which, depending on the country, may include the removal of that official from office as well as criminal or civil punishment.

    MAY include removal of office.

  • Duane Gross

    http://www.nytimes.com/learning/general/specials/impeachment/

    Read the above article on how the impeachment process work. And there were FOUR Presidents who had Impeachment proceedings. First off it will NEVER EVER happen. First the AHCA was enacted into Congress and passed by BOTH the House and the Senate. Then was Signed by the President. And then it was already challenged and upheld by the Supreme Court. The only way for it to be repealed is by passing a bill and being approved by both the House and the Senate. Then it goes to the President who can accept it and of Veto it. If it is Vetoed…….then it goes back to the House and Senate. THERE MUST BE A 2/3 APPROVAL FROM BOTH THE HOUSE AND SENATE TO OVERTURN THE PRESIDENT’S VETO TO BE REPEALED. This will not EVER happen while Obama is in office.

    Now what REALLY should be done is Impeach all these Tea Party Republicans for causing all this mess to begin with. NOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS TREASON. They are holding ALL of us hostage to try and get what they want!

    They will not pass a budget or raise the debt ceiling until the cry babies get what they want. They are passing bills to open this section and that section of Government that suits THEIR needs when they should be voting on a Bill to open the Government as a WHOLE and raise the Debt Ceiling…..WITH NO RIDERS ATTACHED TO THE BILL AT ALL!!! This crap of attaching Riders to Bills is what has got to stop!! This is why and how our Government is in the shape they are in. They introduce a Bill into the House and attach all kinds of Rider Bills to that Bill to get what they want passed and our Representatives decide on a vote. If the Bill is important they pass it most times WITHOUT considering these Rider Bills!! This is just nothing more then Corrupt Business in my book. THIS IS WHY WE HAVE ALL KINDS OF CORPORATIONS AND SPECIAL INTERESTS GROUPS CORRUPTING OUR OFFICIALS TO GET WHAT THEY WANT PASSED. THIS HAS TO STOP!!

    because most instructors want you to at least try and do your own research. wikipedia is a great way to get decent general information about a topic, but sighting it as a resource in and of itself would be like sighting another classmate’s work; you’re basically taking information from someone else’s thesis. using the sources sighted at the bottom of a wiki article and confirming the information isn’t a bad idea though.

    that’s funny considering the Republicans are the ones keeping the shutdown going by quietly changing the house rules.

  • Wallymoon

    Bleeping idiots. Ok so just so we are clear here, the majority of the people of the United States passed the “Affordable Health Care Act”. The Majority of the people in the United States re-elected the President. This means that the minority lost, simple as that. If you think that this President has done anything above and beyond the previous President, I will say it again, “bleeping idiots”. Who do you think will pay for the hearings and all the people involved in the hearings, duh, the people of the United States. So you are going to make the majority help pitch in for your blundering stupidity and when it comes down to it he will never get impeached anyway. So lets rack up more cost for something that is already passed into law and found to be not unconstitutional because apparently we have lots of money to toss around for Tea Party purposes. It is hard to call myself American anymore if this is the rhetoric that goes as the norm. You all are a bunch of conspiracy fanatics that lost focus on the true goal. Making America great not tearing it down and dividing it up for your own purposes. Hopefully when you pass to the next life your Grandparents kick your butts.

  • Pat

    Scott,
    It is really hard to win against fraud & corruption; such as, states voting 108%, machines that place your selection of Romney next to obama’s name, bus loads of union workers bussed in to vote, deceased people voting, and black people on TV stating they voted for obama six(6) times.. I could go on & on, but there is not enough space. Further, the Constitution gives the right to the House to withhold funds when a gov. is taking privileges not given them. REID & OBAMA SHUT THE GOVERNMENT DOWN – not the Republicans. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Because the poor babies did not get their way, they refused to negotiate. I am so tired of people seeing just what they want to see. The PEOPLE DID NOT vote for Obamacare! It was passed behind closed doors by ALL DEMOCRATS, by buying off the last votes they needed. NOT ONE REPUBLICAN voted for that piece of TRASH. Also, it is NOT healthcare. It is POWER over the people. I would venture a guess that you have no idea what is really in that 2,700 pages Of crap.

  • Julianna

    As a college student, and a member of what many refer to as “the worst generation ever,” I can’t help but point out how stupid you all look arguing over an article that is actually satire. We may be stereotyped as a largely “uninformed generation,” but apparently we are a little better at checking our sources.

    Also, all of you, stop pointing proverbial fingers of blame. The failings of this country are by no means the fault of one. You want change? Get off of your computer where you have a mask of anonymity and start doing something about it. Or better yet, do the job that you are actually being paid to do at the moment. Your cynicism and inability to read beyond the words in front of your face is embarrassing.

  • jayjay4142

    It doesn’t matter where he was born you idiot. His Mother was a US citizen at the time of his birth. Now you idiots are planning on running Ted Cruz for President and his father was a communist and Ted was born in Canada.
    Mitt Romney’s dad was born in Mexico and he ran for President. John McCain was not born in this country. However they were born to a parent who had US citizenship.

    I like peaches. I like tea. I also like broccoli. The article sounds sarcastic….I really don’t think its supposed to be taken literally. Nonetheless, I don’t think Michelle Bachmann’s brain is working properly, she looks a bit like scrambled eggs to me. I didn’t need to be awake in 8th grade history or whatever to know that. And Obama may be a clown, but this talk of high treason for shutting down the government doesn’t make a lot of sense, although I have enjoyed the mostly incoherent commentary being spewed forth pleading its case. As far as the shutdown, of course it couldn’t be a complete lack of cooperation and competency on both sides. And judging by these comments the will of the people is to hurl misinformed commentary at each other without doing any good. Excellent work. It has made my lazy American morning…….

  • rrhoop5469

    “…back to the American people”: when has the presidency ever been for the American people? That hasn’t happened since Kennedy and he was killed for it. “Only a dictator would refuse to give us everything we want.”: since when is it the presidents or governments job to give everyone EVERYTHING they want? That’s what’s wrong with our society now…we want it all and we want it yesterday. Sorry, it’s impossible to please everyone 100% of the time. If I don’t get my way, I’m going to shut down America!!! Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black to me. So the president doesn’t want to give up healthcare for people and the republicans do. Neither side wants to negotiate so you all are corrupt and idiots. Are you going to over throw yourself as well?

Errors are confined to small and short-lived instances. People who don’t trust wikipedia are like people who think flouride is being used to control the population.

    Where to begin with this deluded uneducated whining.

    First, last time I checked Gays and Muslims are citizens in this country. They work, pay taxes, and just overall contribute to the country. Just because they live their life in a way that makes you uncomfortable doesn’t mean they’re not citizens. Also, regardless of what you think of illegals they are an integral part of the economy and simply kicking them out won’t solve the problem and will damage the economy.

    Second, do you even know what the Iran-Contra Affair is? Reagan literally gave weapons to terrorists that were holding Americans hostage. The US has a long history of supporting terrorist and groups that would become terrorists. Obama isn’t the first President to deal with terrorists and he won’t be the last.

    Third, while it’s true that no president has ever closed down every national park and memorial at one time, this is hardly the first time a president has closed down something for his own political agenda. Herbert Hoover comes to mind. During the first Bonus Army protest Herbert Hoover used the US military to forcibly remove everyone from government property and kept any other groups from protesting in DC until he left office just a few months later.

  • Admiral America

    Where did you hear that? Mainstream government propaganda media? As far as I know the Tea Party isn’t even a party, and has no real power. The Republican corporatist establishment is in command just as the Democrat corporatist establishment is. No real conservatives, or liberals have any say in the government. If we had a real government then the Libertarian, and Green parties would be the major parties. Obama has done nothing to end the shutdown but refuse to compromise while being malicious about closing down memorials, parks, etc which actually costs more money to do. Both parties are full of bull and don’t represent the majority of people. Yes Ted Cruz reading the bed time story did come across as nutty as he made the futile attempt to oppose the insurance companies Obamacare which makes everyone buy health insurance so Congress, and the corporate cronies can get richer through insider trading.

  • BD

    economic treason is two separate words

  • DeAngelo

    I honestly feel that the Replubicans are selfish. They dont want Obama in as President because he is helping the less fortunate families survive. All the Replubicans want is more money and more power, which I feel is unfair. He is probably one of the best Presidents America has ever had. This is why we are “Not a Great Nation” because we can’t even help our fellow brothers and sisters.

  • Carolyn Colline

  • Admiral America

    Obama helps poor families by making them buy health insurance? Why not Universal free health care instead if he’s so loving?

  • Ian Tate

    The GOP are just terrorists. If this story is true, which I doubt… First they shut down the government because they didn’t get their way, THEN they try to impeach the president because he didn’t cave to their tactics and call HIM a criminal… Ummm… no.

    Because it is user-editable. You can theorhetically alter the contents of wiki to whatever you want to get the info you want for reports and such, but wiki pages are reliable (although sometimes not 100% accurate, much the same as any textbook or other resource) and stabilize over time. I’ve had college professors REFER the class to wikipedia to learn about a subject, and being somebody who knows a thing or two about a thing or two I can tell you that, at least for the subjects I’m knowledgeable about, I have noticed very few inaccuracies.

  • Karen

    Okay, so Boehner can abuse the House rules to disallow any member to bring up a vote on the floor that would have opened up the government the first few days of the shut down. Hmm, not rocket science. So you now want us to waste millions of more TAX PAYER DOLLARS to try to impeach someone because of a law you, the House offered, was approved by the Senate and again by the House after amendments and then signed into law by the President with the approval of all of Congress. The members of Congress are covered by insurance through their job, which does not require they go into the exchange, which is within the law. Why beat a dead horse down and WASTE OUR money in this senseless ideological issue. If anyone needs removed from office it’s Boehner.

  • Brenda

    “This Clown?” “Only a dictator would refuse to give us everything we want,” This sounds like someone else has a my way or the highway attitude. The comment that really pisses me off is “he’s worse than Hitler,” Are you for real??? Go ask a survivor of the Holocaust if Obama is worse than Hitler. That comment trivialized everything experienced during that awful time in history. Republican, Democrat, Tea Party, President Obama, they’re all a bunch of babies using school yard bullying tactics and “We The People” are the ones who are suffering.

  • Robert Carothers

    I know that Both the House and Senate would have to agree on impeachment, and Harry REID would never let it come to a Vote in the Senate! He (Obama or whatever name he goes by doesn’t have the integrity to just step down as Nixon did! Obama doesn’t even have the guts let the American public see college transcripts. Nancy P who put him up for office, didn’t even have Obama Vetted as all other people have done when running for office! Sue me Nancy as I am a Vietnam Vet that would drag you and Obama through the mud!

    “The Tea Party represents almost 22 percent of Americans. Only a dictator would refuse to give us everything we want.”

  • TheLoneRanger

    The fact that a site has a .org or .gov domain *does not* make it reliable. Anybody can purchase these domains and put whatever content they want on them. Further, the domain you’d really wanting to be looking for when trying to learn from or share reliable resources is .edu. But, yes, you should use wikipedia to learn and verify the sources, just the same as you would do for ANY paper or peer-reviewed journal, textbook, etc.

  • Darlene K TattooCritic

But in my opinion he cant its time we do start impeachment process against him he has had his fair chance and it is leading to economic destruction. It started one where the american people are suffering, now he closes the goverment down because he cant meet in the middle. Its Impeachment time.

  • TheLoneRanger

    I’ve read college textbooks that contain inaccuracies and downright incorrect information. Peer reviewed articles can suffer from the same problem if they haven’t been properly reviewed. Wiki is not only most of the time accurate but reliable indeed. You may have to use a few sources to verify, but the same is true when you use any other source. A researcher should *never* take any one source to be cannonical.

    The Daily Currant is a Satirical News Column…..This is from this very site you are reading this article from:

    The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper that covers global politics, business, technology, entertainment, science, health and media. It is accessible from over 190 countries worldwide – now including South Sudan.

    Our mission is to ridicule the timid ignorance which obstructs our progress, and promote intelligence – which presses forward.

    Q. Are your news stories real?

    A. No. Our stories are purely fictional. However they are meant to address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to real events happening in the world

  • Block

    lol I needed my laugh for the day. The old, ignorant, white people is just icing on the cake.

  • KeepinItReal

    You all realize that this story is made-up, right? As in fake, not real news, false, etc. Why not spend your time discussing actual events…

  • Kevin Ecker

    His mother was an American but his father was a Kenyan. According to the constitution that does not make him a naturalized American citizen. Both parents have to be Natural born Americans not one.

  • Bill Berger

    Not to mention his refusal to openly share his school & college transcripts, and a legal/binding/official birth certificate.
    Aiding and comforting the enemy (Taliban) is reason enough for Treason charges.

  • Natefootball67

    I’m not sure if President Obama was indeed born in Kenya or the United States, however, If he wasn’t born on U.S. soil than technically his presidency is a fraud because of Section I Article 2 of the United Sates Constitution reads: “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.” Although the term natural born citizen has not yet been passed to the Judicial branch to define, it is in my opinion, the Founding Fathers meant for it to be translated as; no one born outside the United States has the right to run for presidency, little alone win it.

    Well for starters you calling yourself a patriot is more than just a slight lie…because if you truly were you would know why America needs to be restored to it’s founding principles…Under God, with Liberty, and Justice, for ALL…not just the elites and special interests!!! Impeaching this usurper would only censure him and little else…I, unlike the others, prefer a more realistic and justifiable approach…arrest, try, convict, and hang his worthless carcass on public tv for fraud, high treason, aiding and abetting the enemies of our country, and the list goes on…all legal like, per Constitutional Law…and then do the same to all that are complicit.from both sides of the aisle…so there goes your prejudiced and racist angles for defense…sorry about that…can you comprehend this reading? Leftists bitch and moan about rights…and the Constitution…with no understanding that through God, and the Constitution, more individual rights are given, and subsequently protected through our founding documents, than any gov’t entity could ever give…The biggest act of treason against America was committed via the act of 1871, preceding the civil war…whereas the illegal congress declared the US gov’t as a private corporation, and then sold everything we will ever have to international bankers…These are all facts…not fiction…look them up!!!

The government all of it would rather play head games with each other then think of what you are doing to the small people. Taking food and wic from family’s that need it to feed there baby’s . You in the government keep this shutdown and see the mess you make when mothers of small children do what they need to all over the world to feed and care for there children .

    the bad guy when really they’ve been passing the blame for their own
    transgressions since day one. Talk about kicking and screaming. The only ones suffering are the citizens of the US. If Congress didn’t want Obamacare, they never should have passed it into law. If we want things to get better, the BOUGHT CONGRESS needs to be removed. Not the president. He doesn’t make laws. He can only propose them, remember. It’s up to CONGRESS to take his proposal, turn it into a bill, and vote it into law. Stop blaming Obama for Congress issues.

    I agree Leanne! He didn’t shut the government down – the crybaby republicans did because they didnt get their way! The democrats didnt shut the govt down when Bush decided to fight a senseless war that cost our country billions, and KILLED countless people. And we knew then that the war was total BS! But we didnt act like spoiled brats who didnt get our way, we let the President make that choice, and we supported it. Why can’t they give Obamacare a chance to see if it works? It’s definitely not going to cost nearly as much as the Republicans have approved for spending to go to war!

  • Paul Estes

    The story is false.

    It was published by the Daily Currant, a website which publishes satirical, fictional

    tone of the story:

    Have each one of you fallen off the dumb butt truck? Did we not elect the president to oversee the country and to make decisions based on what is best for the people as a whole, not just the rich but the poor? Now you want to remove him for doing what we elected? Sounds rhetorical to me. I think we need to impeach the Senates for causing the government to shutdown and refusing to stop their belly aching to get the country moving again! The president did not shutdown the government the Senate did by not supporting the president or caring about our government!

Somehow this leads to charges that Obama has committed economic treason?

    The U.S. federal government shut down on Oct. 1 after House Republicans refused to fund it unless President Obama agreed to repeal his signature health care reform, the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.

    Although most polls show that a majority of Americans blame Republicans for the shutdown, many in the Tea Party feel President Obama is at fault for not immediately acquiescing to their demands.

    Need to learn how to place blame. We the People let this happen. Employer needs to fire its employees.

    I add to this a Tuesday morning Prayer ~ “If We Do Not Stand For Something “Good” ~ We Will Fall For Anything “Bad”
    Obamacare is “Bad” ~ for America and American’s. This administration is bad for America and it’s people. May all the Conservatives stand together and may you all – along with Mr. Boehner stand steadfast for what is Right and remains strong in it. May God Bless us and those in need of correct decision making. His will, will be done.” Amen

  • Linda Coz

    These comments for the most part are ignorant. President Obama has done nothing to be impeached . You can’t impeach just because you disagree. He is a citizens of the US, so stop sounding stupid like the tea party. If you are going to complain at least be factual.Just what this country needs, a bunch of ninnies thinking they can impeach the president.

  • Mike

    Only Republicans want Obama impeached. For some reason, they’re acting like they speak for the entire country.

    You guys do realize that the Senate has to vote to impeach the president, right? The majority of the Senate is democrats.

    Republicans are just whining and having a tantrum because they didn’t get their way. This is fantastic, considering the 2014 elections are just a short year away. Dems will probably dominate both the Senate and the House now.

    And by the way…even if Obama is out of office, you still have Biden as your President.

    Really they are blaming him it is their unwillingness to allow his program to go thru after it was made law years ago. These guys should be put to a firing squad for treason. I thing any of these so called TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS AND ANY OF THEM why will they not put it to a vote. Ask the person in charge. this is straight treason against the American people. Lets stand against them before they destroy our credit world wide. Government Treason against the majority of the people! Who voted for Obama

  • USPatriotOne

    Who takes these polls? No one calls me! “We the People” all know OB and the Commie/DemoRats are to blame for the Gov shutdown. We don’t want Obamacare and this SOB won’t listen to “We the People”…!!! Impeach him and if the Senate does not comply they will be removed one way or another, and those barracades better come right back down NOW…!!! We all should know that OB will declare Martial Law before he goes anyplace…!!!

    Another distraction so they don’t have to deal with shutting down the government. The whole world is laughing at US. We want to “impeach” a president that hasn’t committed any criminal offense? He hasn’t even lied under oath. Just because you don’t like him impeachment proceedings are nothing more than a circus. It is like trying to impeach GW, or Clinton, for their roles in foreign policy issues gone wrong. Can we deport them and all anti-intellectual tea party member to an Island please!!!!

  • ForReal

    I would seriously advise all of you redneck idiots to do proper research on this topic before you post like rabid animals about this topic. If Michele Bachmann is the only “credible” source, then I should be set to just drop out of school right now. This a load of crap and you all know it. It’s just like when the President ran for office. You all didn’t vote for McCain or Romney because you liked them, you voted for them because you HATED Obama. Good God, grow up. Reading these comments is like watching a Facebook fight unfold. You all look like a bunch of idiots. Stop throwing around war titles and “I’m a vet of this…” or “I was in such and such war…” People like that utterly disgrace the men and women that served the country we all live in. And, as far as this shut down goes, the ENTIRE government is at fault. Not just the President, not just Congress. Everyone played a part, so if you’re all gung-ho for impeaching the President, get in line for 535 more (That’s all 100 Senators and 435 Representatives, for those of you that are too stupid to count). For real? Come on people.

    RE: eligibility

    A child born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent acquires U.S. citizenship at birth under Section 301(g) INA provided the citizen parent was physically present in the U.S. for the time period required by the law applicable at the time of the child’s birth. For birth between December 24,1952 and November 13, 1986, a period of ten years, five after the age of fourteen are required for physical presence in the U.S. to transmit U.S.

    His mother would have to have lived in the U.S. for 5 years after age 14 in order for her child to be a natural-born American. Mrs. Obama was only 18 when Barack was born, so she had not even lived 5 years after age 14.”

    You want a list of impeachable offenses? Try these on for size:

    the unconstitutional appointment of Hillary Clinton and John Kerry as Secretaries of State (Article I, Section 6);

    authorizing the expenditure of billions of dollars to
    engineer the bailout of the auto industry without Congressional approval (Article I, Section 9);

    General Gerald Walpin for exposing the misappropriation of federal funds by an Obama supporter;

    exceptions, were neither vetted nor confirmed by Congress and wield unprecedented powers, answerable only to him;

    refusing to prosecute racist thugs for voter
    intimidation in Philadelphia during the 2008 elections;

    refusing to enforce immigration laws to secure our broken borders from illegal alien invasion, international criminal incursion, and terrorist
    cadre penetration;

    refusing to defend or enforce Federal law – specifically the Defense of Marriage Act;

    defying a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that the FCC cannot regulate the Internet;

    enacting a program of cap and trade via EPA regulation in defiance of Congress which
    recognized the unconstitutional nature of its provisions and refused to write it into law;

    refusing to follow a U.S. District Court ruling to stop
    the implementation of ObamaCare which was found to be unconstitutional by two federal courts;

    refusing to grant deep water drilling permits in defiance of a Federal Court order;

    surrendering sovereign US war-making to foreign powers and international authorities by
    attacking Libya without consulting Congress;

    ignoring the House budget agreement rule calling for the elimination of four of the most useless,
    but potentially destructive, regulatory “czars”.

    Obama Administration reiteration of its intention, invoking globalist multi-lateral legalisms,
    to violate Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution and surrender sovereign U.S. war-making to foreign powers and international authorities in alienation of the duty and prerogatives of the U.S. Congress.

    authorizing the June 2011 use of predator drones against a North Dakota citizen on North Dakota soil, a clear violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.

    demanding Congress include the suspension of
    Habeas Corpus and the Posse Comitatus Act as part of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.

    refusal to confirm his lawful eligibility to serve as president under the U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 1.

    U.S. war-making to foreign powers and international authorities by attacking Libya without consulting Congress.

    bribery attempts and in word and deed – Obama
    Administration offered bribes to at least 3 politicians: Joe Sestak, Andrew Romanoff and Jim Matheson.

    accepted foreign title and office while acting as U.S. President and without consulting Congress – In 2009, Obama assumed the Chairmanship of the UN Security Council, the international body
    responsible for declaring war on behalf of the UN.

    Obama Administration (EPA), implementation of
    Cap and Trade in defiance of Congress who recognized the unconstitutional nature of its provisions and refused to write it into law.

    refusal to defend or enforce Federal law –
    specifically The Defense of Marriage Act.

    refusal to secure our broken borders from
    illegal alien invasion, international criminal incursion, and terrorist cadre penetration.

    Impeachment is the FIRST step in removal from office. Based upon impeachment, court proceedings can commence. Basically, this man has broken the law multiple, multiple times. He has gone against the constitution multiple, multiple times. He and the mindless Obamabots, (Pelosi/Reid), are purely socialist hacks, and to call them corrupt is to slander truly good, corrupt people. Unfortunately, the real brains behind these three stooges is Valerie Jarrett and George Soros. These two are the puppet-masters pulling the Obama strings. Other than memorizing scripts, Obama is no mental giant. Simply listen to him when off teleprompter. We need to rid ourselves of those two evil twins…….

    I have never heard of anything so ridiculous inn all my life…. Obama isn’t the one to impeach. We need to clean house of all the Senators; not Obama. I guess you guys must be on the side of the fence that most Americans are not on. Did you forget that “the People” voted him in twice? That should count for something. The majority of you never wanted him in – in the first place. You’ll have to search your soul on that one. I blame the senate & the Republicans for the government shutting down. They were trying to hold Obama hostage, but it didn’t work…. I don’t know why anyone (other than the wealthy) would want a Republican president anyway. They’ve never done anything for any of you; that’s for sure. You just don’t have sense enough to know it.

Let’s just face it that the whole reason Affordable Care is hated is because it will force costs down and in turn make the big businesses of prescription drugs and medical care to not be able to monopolize against the people that are enslaved by it. They’ve tried 35 or more times to repeal it and every time they have lost. Why keep on holding your breath and calling someone else irresponsible when you are the one focusing on trying to ruin another person by essentially ruining the country in the process?

  • fredmatic1

    You throw the ‘idiot’ word around rather freely for being rather constitutionally challenged yourself.

    Article II Section 1 Clause 5:No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    As you seem to be rather simple in understanding of the Constitution, this means that your parent…BOTH… must be citizens of the united States, as read and understood by the writers. You have stumbled upon the truth with Ted Cruz, but not in your understanding. It does NOT mean you must be born in the United States, as John McCain IS eligible. Only idiots read at that low a comprehension level, then try to tell others the meaning of what they so superficially understand themselves.

    You need to read and think before you write….. earlier in the text, it stated the exception to that was the founding fathers because THERE WERE NO NATURAL BORN CITIZENS when the country began……..do you think they were stupid? Next, you NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE DIALECT AND THE TIMES of the founding fathers. Natural born meant both parents were born …that is what NATURAL BORN means in this context. Really, save yourself a little time and maybe a little embarrassment….and most of all, educate yourself on this great country and it’s heritage. The founding fathers, every one of them, were brilliant. As a group they seem to have anticipated just about ever possible problem INCLUDING problems with the Constitution itself. They even provided a failsafe method for handling needed changes, and there is even a failsafe for when you have people like the politician we have in power now. Unfortunately, Darwin seems to be able to almost trump the error-proofing our founding fathers placed in the Constitution. You might wonder what Darwin has to do with that? Well, when you have developed something that is IDIOT-PROOF, the world evolves better idiots.

    If I’m not mistaken the last offer by the Republican controlled House was to delay the individual mandate for one year just like was done for businesses and to remove the unfair subsidies provided for Congress and their staffs and to ensure that the President and Congress have to live under the law that they passed, the Affordable Care Act. How is that unreasonable? Senator Reid refused to even bring that bill for a vote, President Obama said he would veto it if it passed. Sounds to me like the Democrat controlled Senate and President Obama have shut down the government not the Republicans! This is the Obama/Reid Government Shutdown not the Republican Shutdown.

    Yes it is about time to impeach obama. I think it is years past time.

    If you truly believe this, you are so out of touch with reality. The majority of people in this country disagree with the vocal minority of neckbearded racists who hang out behind their computer screens and post comments that can barely be considered english. If you continue to believe that everything you think is right, and everything you oppose is unamerican, communist and worse than Hitler, you will continue to be angry as the rest of this country leaves you behind.

    Jeffrey, that’s the most incoherent and inaccurate retelling of the passage of the ACA I’ve heard in a long time. “The taxable subsidies?” No, the “tax” is the (tiny) fines placed on people who don’t carry insurance. The subsidies are something else. In contradiction to your whole tale, the Supreme Court didn’t get a hold of the bill until a couple of years after Obama had signed it into law. And since the bill contained straight-up taxes from the beginning (remember the medical device tax?), there has always been the opportunity to challenge the bill on the “originated in the wrong house” grounds. Nobody’s brought such a lawsuit, because it’s unlikely to succeed.

    This is ridiculous. Are there really so many people that think Obama is to blame on everything? I understand that he refuses to repeal Obamacare but he said he would be willing to negotiate. I like some of the things that Obamacare encompasses, others not so much. Anyhow, one man does not run the government and it sickens me to think that all of the members of the Senate and House of Representatives are not being held accountable for their own actions. They just want to impeach President Obama because they are not getting their way, this is their temper tantrum. I am just fed up. Everyone in D.C. needs to be fired!

If anyone really listens to his inaugural speech from 2008 you would have hear the hitler that he is. Get him gone now!!!!!!!!!

  • BushMaster63

    Actually you are wrong on both counts…he was born in Kenya…although they had planned on him being born in Hawaii she went into labor in Kenya while in the water at the beach…and having a foreign born father disqualifies him on two counts…one US citizen does not equal 2, and the intent of the citizenship clause was to help ensure the devotion to American ideals…and he is a perfect examples as to why. secondly, he never renounced his indonesian citizenship, and has no leg to stand on there at all…thirdly…if he was born in Hawaii as you allege…why is he using a SSN our of CT, issued back in 1890? http://www.heritage.org/constitution/#!/articles/2/essays/82/presidential-eligibility

    Let’s be a little smarter, shall we?

Do you honestly believe that Michele Bachmann introduced the Articles but hasn’t mentioned it on her own website? Does anybody actually believe that Senator Cruz said to the press “This guy is worse than Hitler.” and it’s not all over the front page of the NY Times and other corruptmedia outlets who would love to catch him uttering those words?

I mean your POTUS is arming terrorists after all. Obama voters committed untold amounts of voter fraud in the last election and I believe he pulled a Nixon multiplied by a thousand. He acts like a pissed off kid not getting his way. You will see. If I believed in Karma, I would be afraid if I was you.

Polls conducted by liberal sources Sorry folks, most of America blames the President because he has the power to make things happen, it just so happens this idiot feels his legacy is worth more than doing anything that the American People demand and so here we are with q President and a liberal Congress who have stated publically that they REFUSE to allow anything happen to a health care system that will shatter the backs of every American, business and let us not forget, our grandchildren and while I do not agree with everything the Republicans do, let’s look at the facts and see that they have brought several pieces of legislation that liberals have utterly thumbed their noses to that have to do with giving the American People the same benefits as Obama gave his pets and pigs who told him they could not do Obamacare because it would destroy them

  • Tasha

    To call him worse than Hilter is pretty far fetched. Hilter commited genocide over 6 million people for being jewish and not conforming to his ways. He is far from hilter. I think that all this mess is a result of EVERYONE being selfish and just playing politics on the nation and each other. They have forgot about us little people down here, who it really affects. Its not just his fault things have shutdown. It ALL of them! That’s what is lacking in D.C. common sense.

    This “worse than Hitler” President, and his healthcare program allows me to stay on my parents insurance until I am 26, even though I have completed my college career.This act also allows me to receive free annual exams, which allows me to stay abreast on my health, and hopefully can act as a preventive measure in the case that I am diagnosed with something serious.

    “Only a dictator would refuse to give us everything we want..” — when my parents told me no as a child, are they a dictator? Or is it because they couldn’t afford what I wanted? Maybe if people would stop being so eager to point fingers, they can actually take some time to discuss solutions.

  • KS John

    Really? Instead of working for getting the government back up and running they are wasting their time on this foolish action. First, it shut down because they can not accept Obamacare is in place and all thier weining and begging wont change that. They themselves are responsible for the shutdown. To blame President Obama on State Parks and Memorials closing…that is not something Presidet Obama did. Those closings are a result of the government shutdown, that they caused. If half their effort to waste time and cast blame would be put into working toward a resolution everything could move forward.

  • D.Culp

    I never have thought it was right for a President of the US to MAKE people buy Health Insurance or else pay the Government a Penalty. To me , That should be Unconstitutional and for what he is doing to Medicare Recipients should be Unconstitutional.There are ALOT of People in the US that CAN’T afford Health Insurance , but that should be their Business , not the business of the US Government, nor should the rest of the Population of the US have to fund their healthcare. That is Unconstitutional!

    Level of education has no baring on being a moron; he had very little experience as a senator, doesn’t respect America or the American people, Obama not improved anything, HE alone didn’t end the war and socialist healthcare is NOT HEALTHCARE. YES Obama is a moron. The majority of the people who voted for him wanted something FREE, something for nothing….without those votes, he would never have made it into office. IMPEACH…tried him, do everything humanly possible to get rid of him of ANY government office. He doesn’t deserve to live here let alone be called an American

  • Bill Q

    Give me a break! Congress passed the legislation authorizing the healthcare legislation. Republicans signed onto it. So live with it. If they didn’t want it, they shouldn’t have voted for it. Insofar as the partial shutdown, Congress is responsible for getting the first part of the process completed so it can go off to the President so he can do HIS job. I haven’t seen that happen yet. If there is finger pointing to be done, point where the blame sits. Hint…It’s not at the White House!

  • Franke

    When we worry about whether or not he is a US citizen proves we are just digging for anything to get rid of him. I am not a fan of the president but I will also not begin throwing around allegations about his citizenship because of it. Fact is (an unfortunate one at that) our country’s people voted for him not once but twice. Our bed has been made by the majority of the people and now we must now lay in it. Move beyond this topic and discuss something with substance and reason that adds value to the conversation. If he is to be removed from office enough evidence on crimes committed must be brought to the table, and for now there is not evidence (concrete evidence) to use his citizenship as as a playing card.

  • icowrich

    You have a problem of infinite recursion. If even one parent needs to be a “natural born citizen” and the definition of “natural born citizen” is that a parent is a “natural born citizen,” then all ancestors (infinitely far back) must be born here to parents who were born here.

    By that standard, nobody is natural born.

    That is so not true! My children’s father was born to a solider and his German wife, in Germany. She is still to this day a legal German citizen with Her visa.

  • oldgrapeape

  • Kristie.

    There are exceptions to the American Birth issue, If a person is overseas at the time of birth and the parent is a US citizen the child is considered a natural born US citizen if he or she was born on US soil. This exception was made for the soldiers stationed overseas at a base. If the US citizen is living there and not on US soil, the birth is still foreign. Was Obama born in US soil because his mother was stationed in Kenya? The Hawaii officials have already stated that the records obtained there were false. I do not care where he was born to be honest. I care about the direction our Freedoms are heading. The reason that America is the best Country is because we have actual freedom. Religious freedoms are being obscured. Forcing people to adhere one healthcare system for their own good is removing yet another freedom. Making something for someone own good may not be the best thing for us. It give the government even more power over us. I personally feel that the government is already to involved with the citizens personal lives. Remember the constitution was set up to keep the government from being a dictatorship. No portion of it was to give the government more power. This is why we have the checks and balances system in place. Please before you star spouting liberal, republican, or tea party propaganda, that we as a people need to wake up and come together and be United as that is what this country is supposed to be about.

    The tea party has reached a new low, even for them. They are responsible for the government shutdown and now they want to turn things up a few notches because Obama did not give in to their terrorist threats. This is just further proof that the tea party is no different than Al Qaeda.

    This will be a complete waste of time. It’s doubtful that Boehner would bring this nonsense up for a vote in the house or that it would even pass if it did come up for a vote. It has absolutely no chance of obtaining a 2/3 majority in the senate where Democrats have the majority. Those are the facts. The tea party supporters can make all the threats they want saying they had better vote their way or else, but it’s not going to happen.

  • moodygirlmb

    They want to try and fool the American people and take the spotlight off them.

  • Jim Green

    Observation, not slander. Educate yourself fool

    military are the exception as military bases and soldiers are still government property no matter where they are stationed

    To be accurate, the House never once said Obama had to agree to REPEAL Obamacare. That may be what the MSM and leftist pundits want everyone to think because it lends some weak support to Obama’s claim that Republicans are the hostage takers here. In reality, Obama and his cadre of goose stepping yes men and women are the hostage takers.

    What the House wanted was a simple up or down vote on funding Obamacare. If the majority in the House voted to fund it, it would be funded (and those Representatives who voted such against the will of their constituents would be made to see their mistake at the voting booths).

    The purpose was to get a simple vote on the most hated legislation in this country since the Patriot Act. A vote on the policy itself, not all the little amendments and trailers paperclipped on.

    A vote.

    Really?

    A vote on a piece of legislation is what this whole temper tantrum Obama is throwing is about.

    Say it aloud and hear how stupid it sounds, in this democratic republic, the President and majority party are blocking a vote in the legislative body.

    A natural child born to one United States citizen parent and one foreign national parent on or after December 24,1952 and before nov.14, 1986, may also have acquired United States citizenship at birth.

    To establish this eligibility, the United States citizen parent must prove physical presence in the United States or its outlying possessions for a total period of ten years, with at least five of those years being after the age of fourteen.

    Curious how it works for someone born after 1986.

  • Jim Green

    but he was born in kenya not in hawaii, it was proven his documents were fake, and his own grandmother stated he was born in kenya, do the research

  • moodygirlmb

    If you look at the records, Obama lowered the deficit by over 30% and he has raised the debt ceiling only 2x before this to Bush’s 8 xs and Regans 17xs. And Bush was the one who pushed us into the trillion $ mark with his last budget not Obama. Do the research before talking.

  • Jim Green

    well you are stupid as it was proven that his documents were fake, even his own grandmother has said he was born in kenya moron

  • Gene Nash

    What comic book are you reading? He’s killing this country in leap’s & bound’s !!

  • Dr.Goodnight

    I
    just realized that CNN and the Big Business News Networks are dogging
    the republicans right now because they don’t want to talk about how
    Obamacare is failing right out of the gate and how everybody even
    democrats are running from it . I believe now that the fight against
    socialism is growing like wildfire.And bye the time that angry &
    frustrated Hilary Clinton gets the Democrat nominee for 2016 the fire
    will have consumed the nation.Finally again evil and corruption has
    awoken the sleeping giant known as the True American Spirit.

    Go Freedom Go the United States of America

    All presidents have speech writers. Bush just couldn’t say the words right.

  • gwen rothberg

    it cannot be ‘defunded’ because of the way it is structured, dumba$$. And for the record, the (R)’s changed the rules in the house before they even started this charade with HB-368 which clearly revokes anyone other than the Speaker or his designee (Cantor) from calling a vote. The (D)s couldn’t call a vote if they wanted to because the (R)s knew the only way they could get away with it is to CHEAT. Seriously, you need to get yourself checked.

  • Jim Green

    no they were not, his father was born in africa, and obama himself was born in kenya

  • gwen rothberg

    Shhhhh! Don’t tell them. They think its real.

  • Schuyler Thorpe

    You gotta give the GOP credit for trying to do something constructive with their time–even if it is a complete and total waste.

  • julian

    The GOP is so ridiculous. If they are going to impeach Obama (which would not even remove him from office), Ted Cruz should be fired. Impeaching Obama would not solve our debt crisis or fix our broken economy. I strongly dislike Obama, but the tea partiers who started this government shutdown and extreme right wing GOP members are even worse. We honestly need some strong leaders who won’t be influenced by corporate greed, and a president who is all about fixing our economy. easier said than done though :/

  • Jim Green

    military does not count as the soldiers and US military bases are still government property no matter where they are

  • IndyJeff

    That is totally wrong. Clinton and Bush both had unemployment numbers below what they are today, way lower in fact.

  • Jim Green

    no he is not, he was born in kenya…and yes you do have to be born here to be president….thats what natural born citizen means.

  • Dawn Martinez

    When did you find the time to do this? Thought when the gov’t is closed you don’t work. haha you still get paid and other federal employees suffer….get a real job Michelle!!!!

  • Guest

    I AGREE AND THE PRES NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED ASAP….

  • dippitydo64

    No Clinton was not acquitted. The House sent the Articles of Impeachment that they approved to the Senate and the Senate did not hold a trial on those Articles. Bill Clinton will always be an impeached President that did not go to trial in the Senate. As for double jeopardy, if a President is found guilty as the Articles of Impeachment declare, he is then removed from office, barred from ever serving in any elected office anywhere in the country and he can be tried in civilian court if he is held over by a grand jury on specific charges, i.e. war crimes, etc. double jeopardy does not apply because it is a procedural move by Congress, not a criminal case.

  • Jim Green

    exactly, cause your dad was part of a US military base, of which is US government property no matter where it is

  • gwen rothberg

    Oh, c’mon. Don’t ruin it with substantiative facts, documentation or reality checks. These people want to cling to their delusions and whine and cry foul as they march into political oblivion. Let ‘em. The entire tea party is comprised of blood relatives of the Koch’s and paid staff, not much else.

  • Jim Green

    sorry kenya is not part of the USA which is where this traitor was born

  • moodygirlmb

    Bush raised the ceiling every year, 8xs during his time in office. Obama has raised it just 2x so far.
    He has lowered the deficit by $555 billion a year from what Bush’s was when he left office.
    The ACA Makes ins companies give people ins, offer affordable ins and helps those of us who normally wouldn’t be accepted for ins because of pre-existing ailments. Tell me how that is a bad thing?

  • Mark Bailey

    Yes, she is.

  • Leonard Hilley

    All republicans need to be replaced. Wake up you are the reason for the SHUT DOWN. Quit trying to blame it on others. Are you BLIND or just STUPID. You will lose most of your elections when the time comes.

  • dippitydo64

    Nixon resigned from office and his V.P., Gerald Ford was then sworn into office of the President, thus it was President Ford that granted a Presidential pardon, not immunity, to Nixon.

  • Alice

    Disregarding the whole article, was anyone else shocked that Ted Cruz had the balls to says that Obama is worse than Hitler? Is everyone being gunned down and put into concentration camps, gas chambers, and being forced to wear the Star of David on their clothing so that the government knows who to kill? That is a ridiculous statement and he should be ashamed of himself for even making the comparison because it totally downplays the important sacrifice that our veterans made during WWII.

  • Steve

    The Republicans are using Obama care as an excuse. They are saying that’s why the government has shut down when it actually has to do with a lot more than that. Because Republicnas can’t get their way to stop Obama care, they are trying to convince all Americans that it is the only reason for the shut down. Once again Republican tactics to attack a Democratic President. Just like they used their little tactics against Bill Clinton one of our best Presidents. They couldn’t find anything wrong at all with his job performance as President so they go after his personal life!

  • moodygirlmb

    What records are you looking at? He has cut the deficit by over a third of what it was when Bush was in office. And it was Bush who pushed us over the trillion $ mark on his last budget.

  • Tim

    You might want to look into how bad Obamacare actually is fucktard. Obama is trying to screw this country up beyond repair and its idiots like you who stand by and watch it happen. If he was impeached today it would be too soon.

  • Phineas J. Whoopee

    Apparently not. My faith in humanity has ended with this article.

  • jessi0424

    The new info is fake wzzm 13 checked it out and couldn’t find any truth on it.

  • Logic

    I want to make sure everyone knows the Daily Currant is a satirical website…

  • dippitydo64

    according to the Constitution, a natural born citizen who is born outside the confines of the United States must be the natural child of two United States Citizens.

  • moodygirlmb

    You must not have been looking at the same site I was for AFA ins.

  • Roddie Toney

    LOL How stupid do they sound. They passed health care and now because of TEA PARTY they are holding the United States hostage. If TEA PARTY has there way we would have no government at all therefore no freedom. Time to get these idiots out of office.
