When Asked If Congress Could Impeach Obama, Here’s How This Congressman Responded…

Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) said in a radio interview that he thinks that a vote to impeach President Obama “probably could” pass in the House of Representatives.

Rep. Barletta was on the Gary Sutton radio show on Monday when he said of Obama: “He’s just absolutely ignoring the Constitution and ignoring the laws and ignoring the checks and balances.  The problem is, you know, what do you do?  For those that say impeach him for breaking the laws of bypassing the laws, you know, could that pass in the House?  It probably, it probably could. Is the majority of the American people in favor of impeaching the president?  I’m not sure.”

Gary Sutton replied, “I don’t think so.”  The radio host added that it puts representatives into political purgatory, so it’s important for Republicans to be heard with plain talk so that people get the message.

    Please read all of the article: I DO hope I am wrong:
    ​So you want to impeach Obama???
    Let me quote Dr. Edwin Vieira, who wrote about this back in December 2008 before Obama was “sworn” into office:

    If Obama is not “a natural born Citizen” or has renounced such citizenship, he is simply not eligible for “the Office of President” (Article II, Section 1, Clause 4). That being so, he cannot be “elected” by the voters, by the Electoral College, or by the House of Representatives (see Amendment XII). For neither the voters, nor the Electors, nor members of the House can change the constitutional requirement, even by unanimous vote inter sese (see Article V). If, nonetheless, the voters, the Electors, or the members of the House purport to “elect” Obama, he will be nothing but a usurper, because the Constitution defines him as such. And he can never become anything else, because a usurper cannot gain legitimacy if even all of the country aid, abets, accedes to, or acquiesces in his usurpation.
