Hey, House of Representatives! Impeach Obama, or Become Irrelevant

Smugobama

If you were assuming absolute power over the most powerful country on earth, you’d smile, too.

How bad a president does Obama have to be, before you think, “Could Joe Biden be any worse?”

Our (nominal) president refuses to present us with any verifiable documents from his early personal history, from birth through college.  We don’t know where he was born, when, or what his given name was, unless we accept his factually-challenged, vague and ghost-written “autobiography,” as the truth, and newspaper announcements and an after-the-fact “Certification of Live Birth” (as opposed to a certified birth certificate) that doesn’t name a hospital.

He allowed his Department of Justice to turn its back on an ironclad case of voter intimidation, because the intimidators were black. A DOJ investigator resigned and went on record as having been told that, while he was getting all the damning evidence of a crime that was needed to convict.

He and that same bunch of DOJ hacks have decided that the Defense of Marriage Act, a federal law enacted and signed during the Clinton years, is “unconstitutional,” and that they will not enforce it.

The legislative branch passed this law, as it is enabled to do by the constitution. The judicial branch reviewed the constitutionality of the law and passed on it, by which review it exercised its constitutional responsibility. The executive branch — whose chief executive is currently Barack Hussein Obama — acted completely outside its constitutionally-assigned role, in deciding not to enforce it.

This is nothing but a naked usurpation of power. The pattern of behavior of this president and his appointees is to make the executive branch supreme, and the constitution and the other two branches irrelevant.

If the Republican majority in the House of Representatives doesn’t file Impeachment charges against this power-hungry narcissist after all these blatant abuses, it will be choosing to become a puppet- show legislature, engaged in meaningless exercises in parliamentary sand-castle building.

And, it isn’t far from that now, is it?

The constitution, or whatever is left of it by the time the House discovers a backbone, specifies that, in the event the president is impeached or otherwise incapacitated, the vice president succeeds him. “President Joe Biden” is a scary thought, but not half as scary as letting this president continue to get his way.
