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 spoon-feeding a far left partisan agenda.
