    There is another side of the coin, everyone knows once a president is elected for the second time, he is nothing more than a lame duck. The only thing that a president in his second term has as a threat is his approval factor. Today the Republicans have nothing to fear from Obama, he can't run again and he has a real rough time of energizing the populace behind him because of his approval ratings. He is of little threat.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I would bet that those who want impeachment are likely the same folks that think Obama was born elsewhere.

    Re: POLL: one-third say Impeach Obama

    As much as I dislike Obama I hate to post this but I will.
    There is always the idiot 30%. I bet that same 30% wanted to impeach Obama for being elected. It has to approach 40% for me to even consider it a valid point to discuss.

    I DO think the numbers will rise in the next 6 months but until then this is a "grab some attention" article from a desperate CNN.

    The beautiful thing about that is that you can tell right wingers you want them to do that and why you want them to do that and they will still do it anyways because they are so ideologically driven.
    "Right Wingers" are what? People that want the Constitution followed? Since when is it radical to want the President to obey the laws and rules of the Constitution, instead of having the attitude of just using his pen and doing things that are clear seperation of powers issues, because he knows it will take years and a court decision to stop him?

    The ever increasing radicalization of the right becomes more and more obvious every day and now this poll clearly provides more evidence of the divide in America between the right and everyone else.

    65% of Americans reject the political tactic of impeachment but a full one-third of the citizenry are more that willing to go down that road. Nearly one in five simply want to use it to advance their own political objections and need no actual crimes for the process.
    If Obama was a republican I'd expect a similar percentage of liberal persons would want to impeach him.


    They'd also be wrong, but still...

    I don't see anything radical about impeaching a President that violates the Constitution. It is not radical to follow the remedies to protect the Constitution, it is radical to violate it and want to fundamentally change it on your own.

    Perhaps old-time conservatives believed in those things but not modern conservatives. During the Bush Administration, modern conservatives believed that deficits don't matter; they didn't believe in limited foreign intervention nor limiting the government's encroachment upon individual liberties and freedom. Back then, they were fine with Bush setting up "Free Speech Zones" a mile away -- roping off of protestors where nobody would hear them. They didn't care that Bush was tapping Americans' phones. It's all to keep us safe, they said.

    Conservatives of yesteryear respected state sovereignty and believed that torturing prisoners was only what the Communists did. During the Bush years, conservatives had no compunction about using their federal muscle to overrule state courts. It's repugnant that we even debated the merits of torture.

    Now that there is a Democrat (and a black one at that) in the White House, all of a sudden deficits matter again; preserving personal rights is on their lips as well as liberty.

    We have a name for these people and it isn't "conservative," it's "hypocrite."

    Yes - of course - right on the money!!!!! Right wingers are true patriots who want the Constitution followed and everybody else are just godless commies who want to wipe their backside with the document. Thank you for honest commentary.

    I think we would have a much better system of government if impeachment was as common as elections. And not just for the President. Holder, in my view, is even worse that Obama, and should be gone. If impeachment was more common, jerks like Obama and Holder would think twice before they decided to screw the Constitution.
