CNN Poll says 35% of public want Obama impeached. CNN has downplayed this poll which shows more support for the impeachment of Obama than for Clinton (who was impeached ) that peaked at 29% and for Bush at 30%. http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2014/
What grounds are there for impeachment?
One is for failure to enforce the law. This is seen as unconstitutional and dictatorial by many. Obama has done this on immigration, ignoring the law and putting forth executive orders, which order the government to ignore the law. This has led Sarah Palin and others to say it is grounds for impeachment.
Weeks after former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, the White House is reportedly taking the possibility of impeachment seriously.
At a Friday Christian Science Monitor breakfast, Dan Pfeiffer, Obama’s senior adviser, reportedly said that Obama was worried about potential impeachment proceedings if he proceeds on enacting executive actions to change as many of the country’s immigration laws as he can. White House domestic policy adviser Cecilia Muñoz has said the timetable for executive actions remains “by the end of summer.”
“I saw a poll today that had a huge portion of the Republican Party base saying they supported impeaching the president. A lot of people in this town laugh that off. I would not discount that possibility,” Pfeiffer said, according to The Hill.
Another one is the usurpation of Congress. It is Congress’s job to write laws. Obama has openly said if Congress does not write the laws that he wants, he will do it himself. Democrats in Congress literally applauded Obama for saying that, even though it means Congress loses its powers and the Constitution is violated. An AUN-TV report below looks into the usurpation issue.
Jonathan Turley, an admitted Obama voter, and Bill Whittle, an admitted opponent of Obama, have both made almost the exactly same argument that Obama is on the the road to dictatorial power and that Congress is willingly surrendering its power to him.
Turley, a “liberal” Georgetown Law Professor, gave his testimony to Congress today in regard to whether Congress should sue Obama over his usurpation of their power. If you watch that, then watch “conservative” Obama critic Bill Whittle, it is amazing just how parallel their arguments are. Their techniques however are quite different. First Turley:
This is Bill Whittle’s argument to the same effect:
