Nobody can be exactly like me. Even I have trouble doing it.

Experience has already shown that the impeachment the Constitution has provided is not even a scarecrow.

Thomas Jefferson

A short excerpt from a recent post by William Hamilton:

But what brings this particular column about is that Mr. Hentoff…has just called for the impeachment of President Obama, saying that Mr. Obama is the most dangerous and destructive president ever and is far worse than Mr. Hentoff’s former target, President Richard Nixon.

Mr. Hentoff says Mr. Obama has thrown the U.S. Constitution under the bus and is ruling as a dictator. As evidence, Hentoff cites Mr. Obama’s delay of the employer mandate in ObamaCare, the changing of types of plans available under ObamaCare, ignoring our immigrations laws, refusing to deport illegal immigrants, enacting stricter gun-control measures without Congressional legislation, sealing his presidential records, creating government offices and Czars without authorization, and changing the pay grades of selected federal employees without authority.

For those unfamiliar with Mr. Hentoff and his work, you might read the Central View Post to find out more.  It’s a short read and worth a look.  You might be surprised!

All in all, the framers would probably agree that it's better to impeach too often than too seldom. If presidents can't be virtuous, they should at least be nervous.

  1. Guess I'll have to read more on Mr. Hentoff... I wonder what his views are of falsifying information to take the country to war - without ever asking Congress to declare war...
    That seems more impeach-worthy than changing the pay grade of any employee.
