You can't impeach a non-president, you can only remove him from office.

It seems to me that it is better to suffer the forgery than trigger the Constitutional crises by trying to prevent the Constitutional crisis.
I swear, you people just live in your own little reality, don't you?

If the person in question is truly a "non-president"(whatever that nonsense means), then they would never truly be in office.

However, President Obama is the president and he is in office.

He can be impeached for many things, but his eligibility to be president is not among them.

Actually, that's the most logical thing I've seen Harrier say today. He's absolutely correct here.
