Letter: Are some critics calling for impeachment sore losers?
Comment on this story
If you held the power to impeach President Obama, would you? Most conservatives would answer, "Yes." Next question. Why? Here we commence with points, subpoints, and blood pressure pills.
First would probably be the NRA-ers squawking about the Second Amendment. One problem, he hasn't banned all our guns yet.
Reason 2 is because Obama is a supposed Muslim who infiltrated the White House and seeks to lead America down the Rugged Road of Disaster. For that to be a legitimate reason, you'll still have to wait for him to do something unconstitutional.
Congressional appointments aren't enough. Neither is Benghazi. It was terrible; not unconstitutional. As for his Islamic sympathies, that falls under the First Amendment.
Speaking of, through the Affordable Care Act, Obama clearly spat at the First Amendment, and ignored the freedom of religion it bestows. I would compare that to when Bush gave airport security the right to strip-search anyone and everyone (check the Fourth Amendment.) Conservatives made not a sound.
Final question: Are we truly wanting to impeach Obama for the good of the country, or because we're sore losers? Real character is shown in defeat. This shows we have the character of preschoolers.
What really worries me is this: If Obama signed legislation outlawing all guns, i-devices, Fox News, and Bibles, what freedom would we defend more?
Even if we prevented outlawing of God's Word, would we really put it to good use?
Would we read it, search it, and love it like we're supposed to?
