Appointment of ‘czars’ without Senate approval

Obama also appointed more than 30 unelected “czars” to positions in federal agencies while the Constitution requires that such appointments be vetted by Congress. Article II, Section 2, allows the president to appoint ambassadors, judges and other officers “with the Advice and Consent of the Senate.”

It just shows either how racist the republicans are or how desperate they are to get what they want by circumventing common decency

What the experts say …

“Congress clearly has the authority to say, ‘No money shall go to pay the salaries of X, Y, Z unless they’re subject to Senate confirmation,’

Those "experts" don't have any idea in hell what they're talking about. There are plenty of positions that do not need Senate confirmation and Obama can hire these people regardless of what the Senate says or thinks. This includes almost every single position within the Executive Office of the President. In fact when it comes to the Executive Office Obama can even create brand new positions without the Senate's approval or anybody else's approval. Just like Bush did when he created the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships

If that is not an impeachable offense, I don't know what is
And what's hilarious is Clinton tried to start a war with Iraq in 1998. Google it.
His reason was to deflect from the monica /Cigar scandle.
Maybe you weren't born yet...

Here we go with faux outrage again.
Obama has 32 to be exact, not 30.

The following is FactCheck.org’s count of Bush administration positions whose holders were
dubbed “czars” in one or more news articles. We include only one name per position, though
many positions were held by multiple people during the administration. In some cases, the same
“czar” nickname (e.g. “cybersecurity czar”) was applied to more than one job title. In these
cases we have counted the two separate positions as two “czars.” Senate-confirmed positions
are marked with a star. Non-president-appointed positions are marked with a dagger.

Tobias

impeachment happens in the house of representatives, the trial happens in the senate. meaning that obama can be impeached, but chances are wont be convicted. and yes there is a difference, clinton was impeached but not convicted.

Refusal to defend Defense of Marriage Act

President Obama announced in 2011 that his administration believed the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, to be unconstitutional and instructed the Justice Department to no longer defend it in court.

Not impeachable. That has been done before, including by George W. Bush

During the Eisenhower, Kennedy and Truman administrations, the presidents, in one form or another, refused to defend separate-but-equal facilities in schools and hospitals. The Ford Justice Department refused to defend the post-Watergate campaign finance law, much of which was subsequently upheld by the Supreme Court. The Reagan administration refused to defend the independent counsel law, a law subsequently upheld by the Supreme Court by a 7-to-1 vote. It also refused to defend the one-house legislative veto of many executive actions; in that case, the administration was more successful, winning 7-2 in the Supreme Court. The Clinton administration refused to defend a federal law mandating the dismissal of military personnel who were HIV-positive. The George W. Bush administration refused to defend a federal law that denied mass-transit funds to any transportation system that displayed ads advocating the legalization of marijuana. And in the George H.W. Bush administration, the Justice Department refused to defend a federal law providing affirmative action in the awarding of broadcasting licenses — a law subsequently upheld by the Supreme Court by a narrow 5-4 vote.

Correction, Clinton was acquitted.
