A homemade bumper sticker is displayed on the back of a car during a Tea Party rally on Sept. 4, 2011, in Concord, New Hampshire.

Less than 100 Tea Party-affiliated protesters gathered in Lafayette Square on Tuesday to call for Obama’s impeachment, just steps from the White House where President Obama was meeting  with members of the Senate Foreign Relations committee. “We have been disserved by the so-called leaders of our country for generations,” said Larry Klayman, the chairman of Freedom Watch and leader of the Reclaim America Now Coalition. ““We are giving [Obama] one last chance to obey the will of the American people.”

The Reclaim America Now is a coalition of about 30 conservative groups, including Gun Owners of America, Accuracy in Media and Tea Party Patriots, who stand behind the idea that President Obama and many of our elected leaders are tyrannical and do not govern with their best interests at heart. Outraged over Benghazi, the allegations that the IRS targeted conservative groups, the NSA, and especially Obamacare, ralliers agreed: Obama must go. “I know a scoundrel when I see one,” said former US congressman Bob Barr, who helped lead the impeachment effort against Bill Clinton in 1998. “We have a scoundrel living in that house right here and we need to get him out.”

Barr, who will run for Congress in Georgia in 2014, also read a revised version of his 1997 inquiry of impeachment with President Obama’s infractions replacing former President Clinton’s. He later told TIME that the purpose of the event was to remind American people that they have the power to stand up to government.

Klayman described the rally as the first day of the second American Revolution. At the event, a George Washington impersonator presented the grievances of the coalition in the form of a repurposed Declaration of Independence. The demands included seeing President Obama’s birth certificate, not George Washington said, the “photocopied version,” repealing the Affordable Care Act, and allowing witnesses from Benghazi to give their accounts. Klayman said that if President Obama does not adhere to their demands by Black Friday, Nov. 29, the day that traditionally marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, the protestors would have no choice but to attempt to force him out of office.

There were no announcements aboutthe person best fit to replace Obama. When asked who he would rather see in his place, Larry Sherwood from Virginia who held a sign that read “Obama Lies” said he hadn’t yet considered it. “Maybe Rand Paul,” he said. “But he’s getting kind of old”

Obama Impeachment?Who would be the replacement?Do we risk that a new freak show would simply replace the existing vaudeville act?I agree that Obama would be easily Impeachable by the House of Representatives, but I doubt that the current Senate would vote to convict, only to make Joe Biden the President.However, since the Speaker of the House is third in line in the order of Presidential succession... if we had a Speaker, who was strong Presidential material, and if we simultaneously impeached, convicted, and removed BOTH Obama and Biden, then it's a different story... (..so, how about Hillary Clinton for Speaker of the House?) (..A Faustian Pact, you say?)Follow this free online novel, it predicts everything about Hillary and Obama.I've read it twice, and I'm just stunned - - http://kvisit.com/S38ScAw

Obama is a creation of the left owned media, George Soros, Black Liberation Movement, Rev Wights Trinity Church, innocent low information voters, Unions, Big Phrama, Health Insurance companies, Muslims Brotherhood, Saul Alinkski "rules for radicals". Too many people were not involved in asking the important questions. Where and how did he get here? Who is he? They touted his book which now his buddy and former bomber "bill ayers" claims he wrote "Dreams from my father". This book is all lies and for 17 years it stated on the back jacket "born in Kenya and raised in Idonesia". Again on his law pamphlet he had the write the same thing the year he was elected as the first black President of Harvard. Funny how no one seems to research any of his Occidental grades which were poor and his Columbia grades are being protected by a two million dollars a year law firm. Why? Perhaps the graduates of his class not so big only 300 students from his purportedly political science class could attest. Well you will not hear from them or the professors. No one knows him. Amazing you would think someone would know him. 

Valerie Jarret came from the Chicago University Hospital where she and Mrs. Obama found each other.  Valerie is hostile, and insulates the Obamas from the real world. She may be the biggest power behind the Obama throne.  Mrs. Obama was a Jesse Jackson hire that means she was untouchable. She could take two hour lunch breaks speak on the phone all day and no one would fire her. Sounds like government to me. 

Coasting along on the tide of stupidity Obama crested on the low information voters, the big unions, Left Media that never questioned anything he has done. We have watched as America is now run by corrupt individuals that have one motive in mind to advance Socialism to Communism. Read the books that Obama studied and passed to his students "Rules for Radicals". This is the beginning of dividing the races, the classes, kill jobs, blame others not take accountability, deflect, distract and create chaos. Sound familiar if you are awake and not stoned on Obama Ship of fools!

crazy teabaggers. can you believe they want to stop welfare and give you a job. are they nuts? work for a living. we need democrats to take care of us. we are not able to make decisions  in everyday life. good thing we have Obama. my healthcare plan was terrible. I never had to pay any deductibles and it covered everything. with Obamacare I have to pay $600 a month and $3,000 deductible and does not cover much of what I need. thanks Obama for getting me out of that bad plan. I was so stupid. we need democrats to take care of us and make these tough decisions. I hope we can get these trackers in are foreheads so we can all be monitored like house arrest

The time has come for all the encumbants to be dismissed from their prospective appointments. Then when the next few come up get rid of them too! Yeah some of you say what about the knowledge of all the different aspects of our government being ran by people whom doesn't understand all of it. Well I say they couldn't do any worse by not knowing instead of knowing but just looking out for their best intrest and some of their friends. There is a lot of pay back going on in the government today, seems funny how Mrs. Clinton ran as far and fast as she could away from the crumbling democractic party, away from anything to do with Benghazi ordeal.

Well they all lie and from what I've seen in the last 40+ yrs is they will continue to treat the American people like the idiots they are! Good cop/bad cop comes to mind; as this is the way they do all their little oppositions through the controlled media. They care nothing of the constitution as it was written, only to change things to fit their agenda's. Now you people go on and be good little minions, nothing to see here move along!

Most of us have two jobs just to get the bills payed.  we can't just drop everything even though we agree 100% with what they are saying.  Not democrat not republican, just need an honest senate, house, and administration. First off, we need to cut the corporate ties to Washington, that would alleviate 90% of all the mess in politics.  Anyone else looking for the same thing?

As well, an election doesn't solve the problem as they stand now. In an election, the powers that be select 2 candidates (we call it the primaries) that THEY find suitable for the benchmarks that they want to see met in the next given cycle. To them it does not matter which one wins. Both serve them. 

George Washington never wanted to be President. The best Presidents we've ever had save Kennedy and Lincoln had no desire to be President. THIS is who we need to look to. Yes. The presidency should be held by someone who does not want the position. If they want it they are guarantee power hungry or greedy. 

And the next leader should be appointed. Or at least the selection of candidates. By no persons of "high society". The candidates should come from the farms, the factories, the service industry, etc. Not someone groomed for years by political parties and movers and shakers.

And the problem is: Just why would the people who could Clean up Washington DC and surrounding areas want to when they are the ones who are reaping in the profits of this area. So we elect new people who say they will change things but when they see the benefits they slide right in with the rest of them and do nothing. These new people who are elected become millionaires in their first term and decide to just stay on instead of doing what the people of America sent them to Washington for. These people don't want things cleaned up in Washington and this started when Kennedy was killed and maybe the reason Kennedy was killed. All of the Presidents since Kennedy have done nothing about this problem except one, which was Reagan and all he could do was talk about it, the rest just slid along with this problem. So this problem just kept sliding along till Obama. Obama has took advantage of this problem with fraud and deceit because he knows no-one will stop him.

Well good blessings and I hope he is impeached, it sounds like women in America finally see through the finesse of what they consider a tall, dark and handsome man and will need to leave their fantasies out of supporting a president and let real men take over PERIOD! He didn't only finesse women, he also took advantage of the poor and illegals.

The American people have to realize that universal healthcare is just a dream.  It's too expensive.  It's too impractical.  It's impossible.  No other country in the world has been able to establish it, except for Canada, Uruguay, Brunei, Hong Kong, India, Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Iraq, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, the U.K, Australia, New Zealand and pretty much the entire civilized modern world.  - Dan Hagan

We have a duty to this republic; to bring the errant fraud to justice. Obama lied to get elected, had we known the truth he would not  have been re elected. This is propaganda. America is reeling from the injustice and contempt  this administration has shown for our sovereign rights. It is not just people in the tea party that wish him impeached. It all of us who say it is wrong for our leaders to lie to us, to deceive us into their agendas. This is most deceptive,corrupt presidency in US history; as they use white guilt to hide his crimes from the purview of justice. Obama's presidency reminds me of when Commodus made Incitatus , his horse, a senator of Rome. Obama is Incitatus. He is the ridicule of those who pull the stream and control this fictitious news product. They should focus on his perjury and those who have been injured by his perfidy.

@singingcowboy674 They're still insane and cannot comprehend the real world, which is the entire problem with EVERYONE you all pick. You live in a bubble where you think you're right and everyone else is wrong, which is clearly not realistic. This is why the GOP now has to resort to rigging elections to win, and even that isn't helping now.

@dirty.daug.chit 

JFK was killed by a lone Communist activist. It was Oswald's second attempt at assassinating a celebrity Capitalist (the first being General Walker.) and contrary to popular fictions, there was nothing suspicious about the Warren Commission report.

Also your understanding of American political history is very lacking. Reagan never "talked about this problem" because he was living off of it! it was he who appointed Alan Greenspan and his Ayn Rand-worshiping nonsense and it has always been the Conservatives getting the lion's share of money from billionaires and corporations.


I am no fan of Obama because I don't like Conservative politicians, be they Democrats or Republicans but you guys have to quit with this absurd idea that both parties are equally guilty of the same crap. Democrats are spineless, mostly Right-leaning moderates and it is a shame that the Republicans have gotten SO bad that people will vote Democrat just to keep the 'Far worse evil' out of office.

tom.litton
tom.litton

@dirty.daug.chit It's worse then that.  The system is now setup so any politician must extort and accept bribes from corporations and wealthy people in order to have a chance of getting elected.

That is, if your honest and don't accept money from these people, then you can't get elected, and therefore are irrelevant.

@s0ur.breeaad Actually, sounds like you're in the closet about drooling over Obama. Most women like the fact that Obama isn't trying to regulate their bodies and he doesn't stand around chuckling while loudmouth misogynists insist they should be in the kitchen and popping out babies. It must really sting to realize you're the one who's been conned all along, hence the vehement denial.

@jmac I grew up in one of those countries.   Just picture a man dying of cancer, standing in line at 6 am at the clinic lab, standing for 1-2 hours to get his turn and still make it to the doctor, waiting in waiting room for hours before their open clinic 'hour' is finished by 4 pm.   If he did not get his turn, he will make it to the line next morning again.   I have witnessed this just few months ago, the dying man was my dad.    And yes, it is free.

@CharlieJackson  Is he making a joke about heath care and looking for your doctor under a chair in the oval  office?

There were no WMD's; Bush knew Iraq was much weaker than when his dad went in and he made a joke about not finding WMD's at a Correspondence Dinner (nope, none under here - as he looked under a chair and laughed).  

We should be ashamed we are the last progressive country not to cover our citizens with health and the brouhaha over those with lousy insurance that didn't meet minimum standards not being able to keep their insurance is a joke when you think about the the massive number of those dropped BEFORE the ACA was enacted - where was your outrage then?

@J.t.Alwin @singingcowboy674 You are not serious. In the last election in Ohio two women were found guilty and are serving time for voting several times.  Democrats.One was a poll worker. Who lives in a bubble? it sounds to me that you are living in a bunker with the same mentality of Obama. The GOP did not rig any elections. In Florida again another group were found that were caught. All Democrats. It is the liberal left that use clubs to  scare elderly voters remember 2008 the SIEU came out and threatened old people. Not everyone that serves the public is insane rather it is the ones with hidden agendas like what we see in the White House. You should research stop listening to news any of them. Research, watch C-span, Senate hearings you might be surprised at the party you think is innocent.

J.t. you mean kind of like that town up north who had 100% of the people voting for Mr. Obama. Yeah that's a good one! hehe. The process has become a joke and the people have become the laughing stock. Remember good ole Pelosi and the vote it in; then read it theory, a lot of good that did the American ppl.

Both sides of our government have lost their way and neither wants to admit it, that's a fact. We need an overhaul and the sooner the better.

@J.t.Alwin @s0ur.breeaad Loud mouth misognist? Obama does not care for women. He uses them to tout his socialism. No one wants to regulate a woman's body in the Republican party. I am a woman and I have a degree in economics I believe in abortion up to a certain point. But Obama when state Senator pushed the nine month bill. He did not care that in Chicago University babies were left to die from live birth abortions. Check it out reach Chicago Tribune. Jill Stanke a nurse there testified before Congress. Obama does not care about snipping spines of babies one at a time like they did in Doctor Gosnell's offices. He believes in slaughtering black babies because these are the ones being killed at nine months. It sounds like your a misanthrope you hate all of mankind especially those that do not agree with your misguided thoughts. Women know who cares for them. Not this phoney president but Republicans that are fighting to keep our health insurance that Obama has taken away. You are the one in denial and while you make fun of women at their typewriters these women are working hard to support children, who is the misognist? You are! You want to take away insurance from those responsible enough to have good health care insurance not substandard but now instead of 40 million without insurance we will have by 2014 125 million without insurance. Yes you are a hater of women. The real hater not the tea party or the Republican party.

While you may be an exception and actually had to go through this (I have no idea which country you are in or the details about that country's specific system)This is largely B.S. myths and urban legends of the Conservative cult.  Not every universal healthcare system is equally good and most of them have some problems (i.e. Japan not regulating against people with no medical issues coming to the ER for no reason other than they are lonely, which drives up the cost a lot)  but the lines are usually less than what we have experienced in America for the last few decades. I used to have to wait 2-3 extra hours to see my doctor even when Shrub was in office and going to the ER was often a nightmare because of the busted American system.


What America must do is get a truly universal, single payer system in place and copy what works best from the best health care systems that exist. I remember going top Canada and asking people up there if it was true that they had impossible lines and could not see the specialists they needed to (because I had heard this claim repeated by a Canadian gal who married an American Conservative and was compelled to parrot his mantras) and everyone I asked thought I was stupid for even asking such as they had no such problems and were very happy with their system.
