    Whether it's a good political move to impeach a high official depends, as much as anything, on whether there is anything like the two-thirds majority needed to convict in the Senate. We have had two Presidents and one justice of the Supreme Court impeached. All three have survived their trials, although one more vote in the Senate would have convicted and removed President Andrew Johnson.

    If the Liar-in-Chief's star sinks much lower--and it easily could--not enough people will care about his race to save him from impeachment. Your comments about Ferguson, etc. are silly. Blacks are a small minority in this country, and if most Americans have let themselves become so spineless as to be intimidated by the threat that some of them might riot if Obama were impeached, God help us. I'm sure a lot of blacks realize, even if few will admit it, that this man already has hurt the prospects of electing a second black President. If something like you're suggesting ever happened, those prospects would disappear completely.
    I think it's a great idea for a bunch of right wing white congressmen to attempt to remove the only black elected President from office. You want another civil war? Blacks are a small minority? Well they constitute about 12-13% of the population. Then you have all those pesky Hispanics. And then you have white folks like me, who would find such an action despicable.

    Look, I get it. The Far Right - the descendants of the KKK and the John Birch Society - just can't ever accept a black President - especially not a liberal black President. You are flirting with disaster if you attempt this, but then that's never stopped the Far Right from stupidity in the past, has it?

    Well, we know where they aren't. The Far Right once more reveals it's contempt for the will of the people.

    Maybe not. But I think you'll find that Andrew Johnson was impeached when there were only a few months left in his term. And he came within one vote of being convicted and removed. One thing that may be at work with Mr. Obama is that a lot of the whites who voted for him are already privately embarrassed, and don't want to admit he's bad enough to be impeached. It would be proof of just how thoroughly they were fooled. And just as electing him allowed a lot of whites to reassure themselves that they felt no racial animosity, supporting his impeachment would make them wonder about it again.

    The problem with failing to impeach Mr. Obama is that it establishes that U.S. Presidents from here on can not only reverse federal laws whenever they want, but also reward the people who broke those laws. And if a President can do this with acts of Congress, he can surely do it with decisions of the Supreme Court. The Constitution can't survive many attacks that go right to its heart, like this one does. Of course statists like Obama don't much like the Constitution or the form of government it designs, anyway. Neither do millions of his acolytes, although they're not honest enough to admit it.

All governments accumulate the mediocre, the wannabe tyrants, and power.

    We need to bring this federal leviathan back under control. It begins with impeachment, defunding the left and rewriting the legislation that has allowed this massive, unconstitutional executive branch to thrive. It is time to starve the beast.Evil triumphs when good men do nothing. It is time to take a stand against this great evil.
    He is a lame duck and he should just stay that way. He derves to be impeached but it wouldnt do the country any good. The Stupids would just create a distracting huge fuss when they could be doing something more worthwhile.

    Obama's impeachment might yet save the country. Allowing him to continue dooms us. There is nothing more worthwhile that impeaching, convicting, and removing a lawless president.

    Racism is clearly alive and well. Lawlessness is also alive and well. You provide us with a wonderful example of a twofer.

    Says the guy who wanted to execute the president for non-capital crimes (or even crimes) before he had committed them.

    I attribute this to either your poor reading skills, an inability to follow an evolving thread or my poor communications skills. It was pbrauer who asked "why not lynch" Obama, not me. It was the usual hatemongers on the left who wanted a lynching and not a lawful progression from a House impeachment to a Senate conviction and removal from office. Then, and only then should the Lawless One be arrested for treason, for waging war openly and brazenly against the American citizens, then tried, convicted and, if possible, executed. Treason is a federal capital offense.

    I believe he should have been impeached prior to this last tyrannical act. The House lacked the courage to do what is right.
