The below text (and title above) is mostly copied directly from the blog of David J Shetokas. I recommend a visit to his site to read the whole article. It strongly raises the question- Why hasn’t Obama been impeached???
The Constitution‘s Impeachment Clause regarding the president and all civil officers of the United States is in Article II and reads:
“The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Assassination was once the only way.
Julius Caesar is the world’s best known assassination victim. Caesar provides an example of how top government leaders were removed from office prior to the United States Constitution.
Constitutional provisions for the impeachment of the head of government were an American contribution to the world. The phrase “American exceptionalism” is properly applied to many of the Constitution’s political innovations. It was novel to the world that a country’s leader could be removed without being killed.
People are working on other legal ways to get rid of treacherous or under-performing elected officials. Obama has to go as soon as possible, but right now it looks like the US is stuck with him to the end of his term. Its a measure of how the US has sunk culturally that this liar and coward was elected twice and remains popular with 45% of the voters.
The reason this is so is the left’s unrelenting attacks upon our traditional western culture over the last fifty years. People claim there is no such thing as Cultural Marxism, but I claim Barack Obama’s otherwise inexplicable popularity is stark living proof of its success in gradually changing political perceptions in the West.
