And if so, why has it not been done?
I am in no way a scholar on US policies although I am rapidly becoming so.
From what I have read lately, it seems that the US can demand the President to step down on grounds of lies, abuse of power and corruption, to name
but a few reasons.
Bush clearly lied his way into office and throughout both his terms. The second being the real question of validity.
Obama has not kept one promise from what I can see. His popularity is down in the lowest numbers that have ever been experienced in recent
presidencies (depending on which news you watch or read of course) and yet, he's still here?
I have seen so many threads on ATS referring to Obama being the worst president in our life time. He has bankrupted the Country, bailed out the banks,
forced Obamacare on the poor, invaded another Country, picked up where Bush left off on re-writing the constitution according to what he wants and on
and on and on.
And then I see this. Who's lying?
Barack Obama currently fares as well against a generic opponent in the upcoming presidential election as George W. Bush did in April 2003, a time
when Bush’s job approval rating was much higher than Obama’s is today. He also tests considerably better than Bill Clinton did in March 1995.
Nearly half (47%) of registered voters say they would like to see Barack Obama reelected, while 37% say they would prefer to see a Republican
candidate win the 2012 election, according to the survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press conducted March 8-14 among 1,525
adults. In April 2003, 48% of registered voters said they would like to see Bush reelected in 2004; 34% said they would prefer to see a Democrat
Note: I can't see how it is possible that he has a higher approval rating than Bill Clinton at the same time in his term.
I could go on but I know there are many more here with well informed opinions on this subject that I would defer to them on this.
I still have to ask why the citizens have not banded together to demand he step down? Is it because of fear of the consequences? I know there are many
instances of dissension being labeled as a terrorist action and the people involved have been labeled as domestic terrorists. No Fly lists being only
Free Speech Zones are shrinking and heavily monitored. Gun laws are getting tighter. CCTV popping up all over the Country. Are people scared to launch
a large scale protest?
On top of all that, people are losing homes, cars, jobs. States are trying to separate and do their own thing against what Washington is dictating,
grope fests at the airports, bus stations and train stations. Schools are closing programs, Police and Fire funding is being cut.
Whew! Need I continue?
Or is it that in reality, people are more in favor of him than we think?
Never mind the flames, just an intelligent, well thought out response would be appreciated.
I am truly only looking for answers.
