Impeachy Keen

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Jul• 25•11

Iowa Rep Steve King (R) suggested today that President Obama be impeached if the nation’s debt goes into default.  Another young Republican Turk has suggested that Obama be impeached should he unilaterally raise the debt ceiling, that is, without the approval of the Congress. Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D), who probably would have voted against War of 1812, says Obama should be impeached for ignoring the War Powers Act in bombing Libya.

Don’t we have enough problems today without members of Congress invoking the “I” word at every turn?  It’s never going to happen, so why raise the issue? Why further feed the notion that Washington’s disagreements are irresolvable? Congress’s disapproval rate stands at 74.9% already.

Voters should do the impeaching in this country on Election Day. No need for Messrs. King and Kucinich to be involved. All they do is bring further ignominy on their legislative house.  They should knock it off.
