I doubt it, but I wish they would. Incompetence would be a good one. Not sure if it's an impeachable "offense" though.

Not sure what it would fall under, but undermining the Constitution of the United States by actively working to defeat its immigration laws would be a good one.

They knew the Republican controlled Senate didn't have enough votes to carry it out and most of them voted against removal, anyway.

I think you just tried to rile up the progs here with this post and show that they would all vote yes on this bit of foolishness. Lets back off and laugh our heads off about this poll. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
the senate could have bounced clinton from office, or they could have just censured him, their choice of penalties.

clinton was not impeached because he got a BJ in the white house, he was impeached because he lied under oath in a court ordered deposition about his relationship with lewinski. perjury is a crime.

4. Forcinig mandatory purchase of health insurance, violating federal and state law
5. Kickbacks to George Soros at the expense of the US


These are just the crimes. Why not get rid of him just because he is killing the nation? Do we have to have the military step in and do the job of the congress?
while reason three is a waste of money, it is not a crime. reason four is also not a crime, just unconstitutional.

however IF reasons one and five can be proven that obama had in fact paid kickbacks to soros, and/or violated election law in the sestak case, reason two would be against holder, then it would be possible to impeach obama, BUT the evidence MUST be air tight. we impeached a president because the evidence was in fact air tight, and there was no denying itin the long run.

the reason that bush was not impeached is because he did nothing to be impeached for. so far neither has obama.

further as indicated, if impeachment proceedings do occur against obama, it would in fact divide the country, and the level of hatred on both sides would jump ten fold. we cannot afford such a polarizing event right now, unless there is solid evidence that obama committed a crime. for instance video of him robbing a bank would work, but the suggestion that he might have violated election law, or kicked back money to george soros wont.

As much as I don't trust/believe many of the Republicans in the House of Representatives, I have to think that they believe in the Constitution too much to impeach a President from the other party because they don't like him and/or his policies. The standard for impeachment is high. Birther madness doesn't count.

One has to wonder, though, why he has yet to answer the question of his birthplace.

Given that this potus is on the verge of destroying the long-term viability of the Democrat party, I can't see that they would oppose him being impeached. It would be a good time to dump this pariah "with cover", and go a long way to restory normal America's faith in them as they did in the days of Truman. Now, it is the home of the fringes and kooks.

They can't impeach a President just because they don't like him.

Impeach him for what? Making bad decisions? Every POTUS does that. I cannot stand him or his cabinet's liberal policies, but impeaching him would be ludacris. Unless he does something outright against the law, then no......
