Obama rejects bipartisan debt plan, spurs impeachment planning




+ Washington - As the debt ceiling crisis spooked global markets and reports surfaced of President Obama's rejection of a bipartisan plan, talk of impeachment is circulating among congressional circles. Source


This talk comes from the apparent rejection of the proposed bipartisan plan.


These collisions between both chambers of Congress and the White House have led to calls for the impeachment of President Obama should the federal government default. Congressman Steve King (R-IA) openly claimed through Twitter that Mr. Obama would be impeached if the nation defaulted on its loan guarantees, Politico reported on Monday.

“The 1st dime of each $1 of revenue services debt. Obama would be impeached if he blocked debt payments. C C & B,” Congressman King tweeted. Source


Interesting... just talk, will it evolve more? Impeachment possible? Your views?

Just thought I'd share.

I'm all for it as long as Boehner and Cantor go too.

Enough is enough, and if I don't see those three faces for the rest of my life it will be too soon. All three have displayed nothing but stubbornness and an inability to do their jobs. Obama has shown to be a weakling and Boehner and Cantor self serving, and uncaring leaders. Begone with all three.

So impeachment has never been mentioned in the context of operating outside of the War Powers Act that gets people killed. However the moment the International Bankers feel they may be stiffed out of their blood money all hell breaks loose

I like Obama as a "human being". But as a president, he stinks. If he gets impeached, the gang of six and everyone else who waited until the last minute to FIX an ongoing debt crisis should be gone from their offices, too. It's only fair, in my opinion.

Don't forget about Ried. Then again I would rather kick them ALL out, with the lobbiest, and start from scratch.

Okay this is the most stupid reason to impeach a President. Congress controls the purse strings and controls the voting. If congress cannot even agree on a bill, then why should the President take a fall for congresses inability to pass a resolution. Most of us know our elected leaders are bought and paid for by wealthy interests. This is probably just a warning from them to scare the President to leave tax cuts alone. If they have enough money to influence congress then maybe paying a few extra taxes is what should happen.

That is what I thought at first, a scare tactic to make him agree. They'll bring up it more if that's the plan.

Boehner and Cantor will not come to an agreement with Obama because they are being strong and standing their ground.
Obama will not come to an agreement with them because he is not doing his job and needs to be impeached.

Suuuuuure.

I heard the other day that they are talking about him (Pres. Obama) raising the debt ceiling without congressional support. If that happens he should be impeached.

It's Congress's job to pass a budget not the President. Blaming the president for this is like blaming a farmer for a flood that washes his crops away

blaming the president is the right thing to do.

and its the houses job for the money and its the presidents job to sign the bill.

congress has no responsibity to get on its knees so a president can have his way.

The debt ceiling and budget, oddly enough, aren't exactly the same thing--at least not for the federal government. If we were talking about state government, you'd be closer onto something here. But we're not.

Except for the fact they are all on their knees with their heads bobbing back and forth while corporate CEO's and bankers are standing there with big smiles on their faces. The government doesn't work for the people anymore. They all need to go. We need to start fresh with people that aren't bought and paid for.

I would think that they should also get rid of congress and Impose term limits as well that would really solve our problems. If they can only do one- two terms than how are they going to get bought off?

The rhetoric's out of control. I used to think our nation was run by C students, but I'm starting to think that's being kind. So we're going to impeach the President because congress can't get it's act together and forces the country to default? Suuure, but I don't want to hear anyone complain when it happens to the next POTUS, and then the next, and the next after that.

Edit: Though I do agree that the whole lot of them are worthless, for the record.

I would agree....

If we can throw Reid and Pelosi in there as well!

Anyways, this is the first time I've heard "impeach" from Congress since he took office .. probably nothing, just like this circus .. nothing but a show.

What about the Federal Reserve getting impeached while we are at it? Why does the nation have to pay interest on the creation of money? Surly money and the economy is owned by the nation and not a private bank. The national books will never balance in its current economic structure, so lets stop the blame game and get to the real problem.
