The Dems are raising money by alarming donors with the prospect of impeachment. “Give money to preserve our Democrat Senate lest the evil Republicans impeach our President.” I doubt that will happen but I guess I agree with their premise. So if we impeached Obama, what could we charge him with? My granddad would have offered the following as a starter.
“He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good.”
“He has…obstruct[ed] the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners.”
“He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance.”
“He has combined with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation.”
“For …abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments.”
“He has excited domestic Insurrections amongst us.”
“In every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humbe Terms; Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injury. A Prince whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the Ruler of a Free People.”
--Declaration of Independence
Actually great great great great great grandfather, General Daniel Morgan, didn’t actually sign this document; but he would have if he’d been in Philadelphia. Nonetheless, he was General Washington’s southern commander, organizer of the Virginia Sharpshooters. Certainly would have taken a shot at King George III if he had had a chance. And I think we could bank on him to recommend the above articles of impeachment. Those hotheads like George Washington, Patrick Henry and Samuel Adams would have been raising an army by now.
