Liberal Dennis Kucinich Says Barack Obama Risks Impeachment If He Acts Against Syria Without Congressional Approval
At least there is some consistency on the LEFT to the Imperial Presidents actions.
Former Ohio Congressman and self-avowed Lib Dennis Kucinich warned that President Barack Obama faces impeachment if he takes military action against Syria without congressional approval because as there was no no “imminent or actual threat” to America. Kucinich also takes issue with how Obama phrased his statement earlier today; however, I am not sure how this is an epiphany to anyone that Obama cares little about the US Constitution and following it.
On Hannity Friday night, guest host Tucker Carlson had Kucinich on the show to discuss the following tweet, which links to a Washington Post article about how the administration is insisting that President Obama “has both the authority and determination to make his own decision on a military strike against Syria.”
Not so, says Kucinich, and the president risks impeachment if he does. “There is no imminent or actual threat to the United States of America. If there was, then people expect the president to defend us. But in this case the president is going on his own,” Kucinich explains.
“It’s not ‘I the President,’ it’s ‘We the People of the United States,’ Kucinich says after quoting the president saying earlier on Friday: “I meant what I said, I have not made a final decision.” Kucinich points to Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, which says only Congress has the power to take America to war. “That’s a fundamental principle and if the president throws that away, disregards that I think there will be consequences for him,” he said.
President Barack Obama Sounding an Awful Lot Like Richard Nixon (VIDEO) … ” I First Learned of it from News Reports”.
Hmm, President Barack Hussein Obama is sounding an awful lot like Richard Milhous Nixon these days. The video below by Reveal Politics has side by side Obama – Nixon sound bytes and it sounds like they are separated at birth. Even CBS’s Bob Sheiffer of ‘Face the Nation’ stated to White House advisor Dan Pffeiffer, this is exactly the approach that Nixon took during Watergate. Nixon had Watergate, but Barack Obama is juggling three scandals, or is it four, at the same time and doesn’t have an answer for any of them. For those that refuse to compare Obama’s scandals to Watergate, what’s the difference? Both attacked political opposition, both used the IRS to intimidate, harass, and affect political outcomes. Both used the powers of the government against their political enemies, heck and even friends in the MSM. Oh, there was one difference … no one was left behind in Benghazi to die as they begged for help.
Remember how Democrats reacted when Nixon was caught in one scandal? But of course there is a double standard for Obama. Sorry, one scandal might be explainable. Two, makes one start to raise their eye brow. Three, is a very troubling trend and four, we begin to use the “I” word. The LEFT is losing their collective minds that their Obamamessiah, the president of ‘Hope and Change’ is nothing more than Richard Nixon with a “D”.
Bad Day for Obama & Hillary Clinton: MSNBC Guest from the Daily Beast Columnist Michael Tomasky Says … Invoked “That Word That Starts With ‘I’” … Benghazi Scandal Makes White House “Look Terrible,” Possibly An “Impeachment Issue”
You know its bad for Barack Obama when the LIBS at
MSNBS MSLSD MSNBC start bringing up “Impeachment” as a result of their Benghazi cover-up and Benghazigate.
Even the LEFT is at a loss for words and defense when it comes to the way the Obama White House has handled Benghazi before, during and after the Benghazi consulate attacks. The news that Benghazi talking points had been edited 12 times and scrubbed of all references of terrorism have left the LEFT in a quandary. Just when you thought you had seen it all, even the ultra-liberal MSNBC folks appear to be using the “I” word when it comes to President Barack Obama and “impeachment” over the White House’s handling of the aftermath of the Benghazi terror attacks that left four Americans dead, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens. Playing politics games to win the 2012 presidential election, could come back to bite Obama. MSNBC, that has made a living off of defending, deflecting and just not covering Barack Obama’s disastrous presidency, both foreign and domestic, has now been forced to question the Obama presidency and even use such descriptive words as impeachment and compare his handling of Benghazi to ‘Watergate”. As Maggie’s Farm states, this is beginning to look much worse than “Watergate”. In fact, it is. No US ambassadors died during Watergate. Actually, no one died during Watergate, only political careers.
Unlike Watergate, an unremarkable political dirty trick with a dumb and unnecessary White House cover-up (if a handful of people had been fired it would have been a big nothing), in this case American public servants died seemingly because of State Dept and possibly White House incompetence or indifference, and both may have been complicit in an attempted cover-up a few weeks before a national election. Possibly the CIA too. People have been intimidated about speaking out, but maybe no longer.
It is not joust Barack Obama who is in trouble, but so is former Secretary of State and 2016 Democrat presidential nominee wannbe Hillary Clinton. She comes across looking terrible, possibly even worse than Obama. As Washington Post reporter Nia-Malika Henderson said, “I think, for Clinton, it looks Clintonian.” Yes she does. Hillary looks like all the worst parts of the Bill Clinton years, something that will not be lost by the GOP or Democrat primary challengers in 2016. The politicization of talking points when four Americans died is beyond disgustingly sick. Before, during and after, Clinton’s State Department failed miserably and looked to cover up … is that what the US needs as a president in 2016?
“This is quite the window into what is usually the hush-hush process about how to deal with these types of attacks and the spin that irrevocably comes afterwards,” NBC reporter Luke Russert opined.
“This is not good for the White House right now,” Russert said to BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith. “Does it stick?”
“Well, sure,” Smith replied. “They look terrible.”
Smith said that the emails indicate that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have been directly involved in the process of “scrubbing” references to Islamic terrorism from her department’s talking points.
“Does this become then an election politics thing?” Russert asked. He said that the Republican Party has been trying to link Clinton to the Benghazi scandal for some time.
The Daily Beast columnist Michael Tomasky said it does. He invoked “that word that starts with ‘I’” to describe the potentially significant political fallout that could result from the Benghazi scandal.
“It becomes a potentially impeachment issue as long as the Republicans are in control of the House,” Tomasky added.
“I think, for Clinton, it looks Clintonian,” submitted Washington Post reporter Nia-Malika Henderson. “It also, I think, reminds us that there is only one person that the far right-wing hates more than Obama, and that’s Hillary Clinton.”
Barack Obama & Eric Holder Make Judicial Watch’s 2011 List of 10 Most Corrupt Washington, DC Politicians
KUDOS to President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, they made the list of most corrupt Inside the Beltway DC politicians. Where have all the Statesmen gone?
Judicial Watch has their 2011 list of top 10 most corrupt Washington, DC politicians. Among those on the list were President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. For the GOP, former US Senator John Ensign of Nevada and US Rep. Bachus if Alabama. Do any of “We the People” think that we would be able to get away as private citizens what these politicians get away with every day?
TOP 10 LIST that One Does Not Want to be On
•Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-AL)
•Former Senator John Ensign (R-NV)
•Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL)
•Attorney General Eric Holder
•Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL)
•President Barack Obama
•Rep. Laura Richardson (D-CA)
•Rep. David Rivera (R-FL)
•Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
•Rep. Don Young (R-AK)
AG Eric Holder:
The Fast and Furious operation by itself should have resulted in Holder’s resignation, but it is the cover-up that has prompted serious calls for Holder’s ouster.
On May 3, 2011, in a House Judiciary Committee hearing chaired by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Holder testified: “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” Newly released documents show he was receiving weekly briefings on Fast and Furious as far back as July 5, 2010. It appears Holder lied to Congress. (Judicial Watch sued the DOJ and the ATF to obtain Fast and Furious records. The Judicial Watch investigation continues.)
Unfortunately, when it comes to Holder corruption and abuse of office, Fast and Furious is just the tip of the iceberg.
President Barack Obama:
President Barack Obama: President Obama makes Judicial Watch’s “Ten Most Wanted” list for a fifth consecutive year. (The former Illinois Senator was also a “Dishonorable Mention” in 2006.) And when it comes to Obama corruption, it may not get any bigger than Solyndra. Solyndra was once known as the poster child for the Obama administration’s massive “green energy” initiative, but it has become the poster child for the corruption that ensues when the government meddles in the private sector. Solyndra filed for bankruptcy in September 2011, leaving 1,100 workers without jobs and the American taxpayers on the hook for $535 million thanks to an Obama administration stimulus loan guarantee.
US Rep. Steve King (R-IA) Says Obama Will Be Impeached If He Allows the United States To Default on Debt
WOW, they are using the “I” word.
US Representative Steve King (R-Iowa) stated that President Barack Obama “would be impeached” if the United States falls into debt default. King basically is saying that the debt is automatically paid as “the 1st dime of each $1 of revenue services debt. So how could the US default on the debt? For any honest politician, we can not. However, Obama continues to try and scare Americans by continuously using the word default when it comes to the debt. Sadly, its all about the politics and reelection with Obama … not about America.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Monday that President Barack Obama “would be impeached” if the nation falls into default.
“STOP talking about default,” he wrote on Twitter. “The 1st dime of each $1 of revenue services debt. Obama would be impeached if he blocked debt payments. C C & B!”
King is among the House Republicans who voted for the so-called “Cut, Cap and Balance” plan that would introduce a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget. The Senate last week dismissed the House bill.
