Letter: Impeach Obama

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”– Sen. Barack Obama, March 2006

I think this statement by Obama, failed leader of this nation, pretty much explains to all honest, true red-blooded American patriots who love God and country what exactly is wrong with the United States of America right now. The time for Obama’s impeachment is now; the proof is there many times over. It’s time to get rid of those we elected last time and bring in honest, faithful political leaders who have the guts to get the job done and get it done right the first time.

It’s obvious those we elected last time were bought and paid for, not elected. Wake up and get it right this time.

This letter illustrates the extent to which some in this country are completely divorced from reality--when it comes to economics, politics, and virtually anything that requires coherent thought. That's a summary description of those who identify as Tea Party members or their fellow travelers. Ted Cruz and his merry band of pranksters have led the Republican Party to the brink--and are taking the country with it. They're getting hammered in the polls, and dragging the greater Republican Party down with them. Their recklessness is hurting millions of Americans who depend on the government, and yet we have some here who are cheering them on, and blaming the president and the Democrats for what is entirely the fault of a few extremist Republicans. Have they no appreciation for facts and the truth? Have they no shame?

few extremists Republicans? Your party wants to increase the debt limit and FORCE ACA onto our children...who can't even find full time jobs...Tea party supporters want govt out of our life's....not in our face.....Oh, by the way, in our democratic society, there are THREE branches of govt...each elected by their constituents...House controls the purse. Democrats recklessness is hurting millions of Americans who depend on the government, and yet we have some here who are cheering them on, and blaming the Republicans for what is entirely the fault of a few extremist Democrats. Have they no appreciation for facts and the truth? Have they no shame?

Well Bruce, you seem to be the one divorced from reality. Susan Collins put forth a great plan and of course Harry Reid did what he always does, did not even consider it. I never hear you honestly comment on him and how he constantly rules his party. Your posts are pretty much the same in regards to how we got here. Everything is caused by lower tax rates. Spending is never an issue with you. Like the teenager who wants to max out the credit card and then complains it is unfair when you take that credit card away from him. Your arguments are based on poor economics.. An agreement will be reached just like what happened in the sequester. Both parties need to work together .Sadly that is not happening because we have a leader that does not know how to lead. The President is no Bill CLinton. And Boehner is no Newt Gingrich.

to place the Bruce claim in context..... Just 6 democrats need to cross the isle to vote to level fund govt . All the bills to fund Govt have been sent over from the HOUSE.... The Democrat party of NO will not fund Govt - funny how facts always destroy a liberals narrative. STOP CONGRESS PAY - read this: http://beta.congress.gov/bill/113th/house-bill/807

Impeach, impeach, impeach. The Republicans rallying cry when they lose elections. PS. just heard Romney is tearing down his 12 million dollar beach house in California to make a larger one with the car elevators. It would have been so much fun to have the summer white house in California. (.That is sarcasm for those who don't know.)

Oh come on...obama said he was sorry for this statement.

A simple Wiki check: A statutorily imposed debt ceiling has been in effect since 1917 when the US Congress passed the Second Liberty Bond Act. Before 1917 there was no debt ceiling in force, but there were parliamentary procedural limitations on the level of possible debt that could be held by government. US government indebtedness has been the norm in United States financial history, as well of most Western European and North American countries, for the past 200 years. The US has been in debt every year except for 1835. Every President since Herbert Hoover has added to the national debt expressed in absolute dollars. The debt ceiling has been raised 74 times since March 1962, including 18 times under Ronald Reagan, eight times under Bill Clinton, seven times under George W. Bush, and three times under Barack Obama. Sounds like Reagan, his Trickle Down Economics and 18 debt ceiling changes make him the worse President ever...... Today - We hear daily the Republican party itself is starting to worry they are imploding from the radicals of the Tea Party - will there even be a Republican candidate???

Ah, Jim. Facts, facts, facts. What a prehistoric concept.

Veritas what a joke if you call that convincing facts. All the liberals are alike when the facts don't support their argument they lie.

What a joke just looked at your example on Wiki and it clearly shows Obama's debt skyrocket and Reagan's 8 increases about 250 Billion each. Obama's increases have been Trillions. Obama is by far the worst president ever. Plus Reagan got us out of the Carter recession with jobs, jobs, jobs. Reagan=Robust economy. Obama=extended recession or pathetic recovery.

Cool...a Wiki check......did you miss the terrorist attack in 2001? Wars cost money and debt ceilings were raised to protect Americans during the Bush administration.....Same for WW2, Korea, Viet Nam......socialist obama has doubled the debt in 5 years FOR SOCIALIST PROGRAMS.... MSM is the result of the community organizer being elected and then re-elected...because of uneducated fools like you and welfare....and voter fraud....

Your post also exemplifies the divorce from reality of the Tealiban. When you write that "Wars cost money and debt ceilings were raised to protect Americans during the Bush administration, you conveniently overlook the fact Bush also cut income taxes--something never before done in a time of war. Those tax cuts also happened to be steeply regressive, the top brackets have reaped most of the benefits, while mainstream economists agree those cuts did nothing for long-term sustainable job growth--they helped fuel the bubble that led to the Great Recession. That recession, you may recall, has led to the high job rate, and contributed mightily to the deficit you rant about--while conveniently overlooking the real sources of that debt.

Correction: my post should read "high jobless rate" .

it also should read "Bush also cut income taxes--something never before done in a time of war"...except for Kennedy during Vietnam.

the Bruce OPINION of what caused the economic Downturn is simply liberal revisionist history. Any look at the time line shows the Bush economy at ~5% unemployment and a robust GDP UNTIL democrats were elected to control all of Congress....Facts again turn the liberals narrative to ashes

Reply to GWTW below: Not quite. When Kennedy propose a tax cut in 1963, there was little direct American involvement in Vietnam. By no stretch of the imagination (except by the reality-impaired who are well-known on this site) could the Kennedy tax cut be regarded as a 'war-time' tax cut. We had some 16,000 "advisors" in Vietnam then, none of whom were supposed to be directly involved in combat. In fact, the issue of Vietnam never came up in debate over the issue. Earlier, in 1957, Kennedy had opposed a tax cut proposal, feeling that defense needs took precedence.

Your right war costs money. But you don't pay for war by lowering taxes and reducing the income you have to pay for it. Spending cuts alone will never end the deficit unless you want to stop paying for any govermant at all and just have anarchy. We need the military for a reason to defend our country and we need entitlemants like social security, medicare, food stamps, FDA, the SEC etc to defend the American people from rampart capitalism and poverty.

Jim your comment is spot-on but you are overlooking something, you failed to mention the real culprit, the fact that the United States of America, the richest, stupidest and most prosperous country in the history of the world was scammed into the Fedral Reserve Act in 1913 and has been paying interest on its own money ever since. Nelson Aldrich and our own congress foisted this banking scam on us and Americans appear to be too dumb to see the truth and shut down the Fed and give the power to print our money back to the US Treasury where is belongs. That sir, would be the first step in fixing our debt problem and it would also reign in the insane spending taking place in Washington. Funding for these insane wars would not be possible if the Fed were not there ready to give these jokers all the money they want. Wake up America! End the Fed!

I agree 100% that Obama is the worst president ever but the answer isn't to impeach Obama it is to vote out as many as possible democrats in the house and the senate. New Hampshire has a huge opportunity to do that. Obama lackey Jeanne Shaheen is up for re-election in 2014 we need to vote her out. We also have the opportunity to vote out Obama rubber stamps Anne Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter. The checks and balances of power in Washington to shift and Obama the radical that he is will make a huge mistake. Also some of Obama's real scandals will get the exposure that they deserve and they might be how Obama makes an exit.

by Matthew Boyle 24 Apr 2013 ..... During her testimony on the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declared that she, President Barack Obama and other political officials at the top of this administration have the authority to decide which laws to enforce, and which ones to ignore...... Napolitano made the declaration in an exchange with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) when he was questioning her on how Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have alleged that political officials in the Obama administration, including her, have blocked them from enforcing the law. THIS IS AN IMPEACHABLE EVENT
