    Impeachment?

    Who are those people talking impeachment of Obama? And on what grounds? Is this a ploy to try and get that loser Romney in? There is a legal procedure that must/will be followed and that loser Romney will not figure into this scenario.
    The hatred some people have for Obama borders on the pathological. Remember that the Republicans impeached Clinton who proved himself to be far more capable a president than those two bumbling Bushs whose feet the extremists worship.

    obviously since the republican party lost the election for the presidency to obama, they have to impeach him now. contrary to the will of the american people, the will of the republican party is to remove obama at all costs, so says their senate minority leader.

    even if it requires an illegal and futile act like attempting to impeach him while the senate is controlled by the democrats.

    They are complete and total idiots, to a man.

    Even if the president lied to the American people
    , that is not grounds for impeachment.

    As for wondering if it's a ploy to try to "get that loser Romney in?" People who ask that question are just as delusional as those who wonder about it.

    Lying is not grounds for impeachment. Lying under oath? Might be grounds; but even in Clinton's case, he was not convicted.

    At the federal level, Article II of the United States Constitution (Section 4) states that "The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors." The House of Representatives has the sole power of impeaching, while the United States Senate has the sole power to try all impeachments.

    Re: Impeachment?

    I'm too tired to research this, but I don't believe we have ever impeached a president. It's been tried a few times, most recently as to Clinton (for lying under oath about sex, which most likely would have failed on various levels).

    If Obama was impeached (which will never happen), he'd be succeeded by Biden, not the president of the Senate (who is another Democrat).

    It's okay by me if people are still butthurt over the election but I would appreciate it if we could turn our attention to the nation's problems before Thanksgiving.

    United States Code (U.S.C.), section two of title 18:

    (a) Whoever commits an offense against the United States or aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures its commission, is punishable as a principal.

    he's on a hill with that. as the commander in chief, supreme commander of us forces, his counsel/command/inducement to action or lacktherof led directly to the murder of american citizens.

    Absolutely ridiculous. First of all, grounds for impeachment of the president of the United States are covered in the Constitution and quoted above. Secondly, the President of the United States is not in any way, shape or form under any legal obligation to "rescue" anyone from anywhere.

    Yeah, people get confused about the process. Actually, Clinton was impeached -- on two charges: obstruction of justice; and lying under oath. He was acquitted by the Senate. The HoR impeaches (indicts). The Senate tries.
