End Obama's precedents

I joined OverpassesforAmerica.com, which has 50 state groups with 47,545 members since forming on June 8, to have President Obama impeached.

The IRS scandal was bad enough. When the NSA scandal broke, that was it.

The website's founder, James Neighbors, has said Americans should just think of the precedents this administration is setting and what will be in store for us in the future as a result.

We members want to raise awareness of the impeachable and scandalous offenses of President Barack Hussein Obama by protesting with signs and flags.

He violated the War Powers Resolution in Libya by siding with the rebels in their civil war. That is impeachable.

When Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown, the rebels raised the al-Qaida flag in Tripoli. The president used American air power to help the rebels advance along the Libyan coast. Obama wanted to bomb Syria and again aid the Sunni Muslim al-Qaida rebels. Aiding al-Qaida is treason.

In Benghazi, the president prevented the military from defending the U.S. outpost, which is U.S. soil that was under attack, and four Americans died. In Syria, he is concerned with the safety of foreign nationals.

The president swore under oath to defend Americans against enemies.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
