Another National Talk Show Host Calls Obama “Impeachable”

Ben Johnson,

The number of people acknowledging that Barack Obama’s lawless actions deserve impeachment has risen by one. Obama’s refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is “impeachable,” according to a nationally syndicated, widely quoted talk show host. Bryan Fischer is director of Issue Analysis for Government and Public Policy at American Family Association and host of “Focal Point,” which is heard on the 148 radio stations of the American Family Radio Network. Fischer wrote on the AFA’s website:

Obama is violating his oath of office by refusing to defend DOMA. The Constitution he took a solemn and sacred oath to “preserve, protect and defend” requires him in Article II, Section 3 to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” This refusal to do his sworn duty makes him derelict in his duty, and is both inexcusable and even impeachable.

Fischer also dedicated a segment of his Thursday program to the DOMA decision.

The Christian broadcaster’s influence is only growing. Newsweek magazine (which apparently still exists) paid Fischer a backhanded compliment in a tongue-in-cheek hit piece entitled, “How Bryan Fischer Became the Newest Media Darling.” It describes how Fischer’s straight talking common sense and Biblical conservatism have attracted a growing national audience — a fact that has caused the dinosaur media to frequently distort, mock, and ridicule Fischer’s message and audience.

Fischer joins a growing list of center-Right (and occasionally far-Left) personalities who believe the president should be investigated, and perhaps impeached and removed from office. Radio talk show host Tammy Bruce called for Obama’s impeachment for bringing the Muslim Brotherhood closer to power in Egypt. (It would be difficult to think of two people further apart politically than Fischer and Bruce.) Another Bryan, Bryan Preston of Pajamas Media’s blog, put impeachment on the table the day before Fischer’s blog.

Within the last two weeks alone Newt Gingrich, ACORN expert Matthew Vadum, and others have stated the president’s actions violate the rule of law, ignore legal precedent, and establish a “rule of men” presided over by Obama — and all have had the courage to say these actions could merit impeachment.

    A federal district court in Massachusetts ruled the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 as unconstitutional in July 2010.

    The state had argued the law denied benefits such as Medicaid to gay married couples in Massachusetts, where same-sex unions have been legal since 2004.

    Judge Joseph L. Tauro agreed that DOMA forces the state to discriminate against its own citizens and ruled that the federal Defense of Marriage law violates the Constitutional right of married same-sex couples to equal protection under the Fifth Amendment.

    He also struck down DOMA on Tenth Amendment grounds, stating that marriage is the province of the states, not the federal government. This is a bit of a "pie-in-your-eye" to conservatives: the Tenth Amendment is basically an anti-federalism "states' rights" amendment. Judge Tauro basically took it and said "States' rights? You got it. States get to decide who gets 'married'; not the federal government."
