Stockman Considers Filing Articles Of Impeachment

It’ll never go anywhere, but the liberal media would have an opportunity to circle the wagons and be outraged…unlike when Democrats constantly talked about impeaching George W. Bush, and John Conyers (D) even held a mock impeachment in the basement of the Capital Building

(The Blaze) Just hours after he stormed out of President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) announced he’s considering filing articles of impeachment against the president.

“I’m considering filing Articles of Impeachment against Barack Obama,” Stockman announced on a website backing his senate run.

“You see, I walked out of Obama’s State of the Union address last night,” Stockman’s announcement added. “Obama defiantly vowed not only to radically expand the reach of government from cradle to grave, but to smash the Constitution’s restrictions on government power while doing it.”

The Texas congressman explained that he left the president’s speech early because he was upset after “hearing how the president is further abusing his Constitutional powers.”

That post is entitled “Should I impeach Obama?”, and asks supporters whether he should file articles of Impeachment. This leads to a petition, which, quite frankly, is weak tea.

WHEREAS, Barack Obama openly declared war on the Constitution in his
State of the Union address Tuesday night; and

WHEREAS, Last year Congressman Steve Stockman said he would consider
filing Articles of Impeachment as a last resort to stop Obama; and

WHEREAS, Obama’s continued defiance of the Constitution and lawless
behavior has left Congress with few options; and

WHEREAS, Congress will not agree to impeach Obama unless millions of
Americans demand it;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that I hereby sign my name to this CITIZENS
PETITION TO IMPEACH BARACK OBAMA

Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert also called for impeachment. If these folks want to do this, they need concrete reasons. For instance, violating the Constitution and law regarding the military action against Libya. And Teaparty.org has a long list of specific complaints.

Meanwhile, MSNBC is having a snit fit over Republicans walking out and referring to Obama as a dictator. Funny, they didn’t have an issue when Democrats were referring to Bush the same way. But, then, holy cow, have you seen MSNBC’s website as of late? Talk about spoonfeeding a far left partisan agenda.

    If they feel the President has committed Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and they think they have a reasonable chance to prove it, they are obligated to impeach him.

    House Democrats, particularly Dennis Kucinich and a few others, tried to impeach President George W. Bush over the Iraq invasion but Speaker Pelosi stated that impeachment was “off the table”.

    Politics ain’t beanbag. Calling Obama a tyrant, dictator, communist, Marxist etc goes with the territory.

    Calling MSNBC part of the mainstream media is like calling FOX part of the mainstream media.

    Well, besides the fact that FoxNews is now mainstream media… what’s your point?

    Also, this bland, weak-ass impeachment for votes gives “any” party a bad name. Impeachment should not be political in nature, but legal. If they want to talk about impeachment, then specific illegalities need to be mentioned and brought up.

    There’s alot of fodder there for that.
    Personally, the GOP dont have the stones to stand up to Obama and the Socialists. many in the GOP are mini-Socialists themselves. When you have many in the GOP agreeing with all the things Obama does and plans to do, then there is no way the party will get behind an impeachment.

    Another reason this GOP needs to fall.

    I have a picture of the little candy ass Republicans standing up and trying to be statesmen. That is actually funny. They are too interested in getting along with everyone and making sure they are invited to the next cocktail party.

    Jeff,
    I can always tell someone that is nuts when they start complaining about FOX. FOX is considered a liberal outlet by neo-Confederates.
