Impeach or not Impeach that is the question


WASHINGTON TIMES - Rep. Steve Stockman threatened on Monday to defund the White House and potentially file impeachment charges if President Obama pushes forward with gun control measures without congressional approval."I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,Any proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible," he said. "Under no circumstances whatsoever may the government take any action that disarms any peaceable person — much less without due process through an executive declaration without a vote of Congress or a ruling of a court." Stockman was quickly seconded by fellow freshman Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla., who insisted that "all options should be on the table" in responding to the president's proposals, including impeachment.
And judging from the outpouring that occurred on Twitter during and after the president's announcement, thousands of would-be constitutional scholars agree with the two freshman Republicans.

"OBAMA IS A CRIMINAL. WE HAVE A CONSTITUTION AND HE IS BOUND TO IT! NO MORE EXECUTIVE FIAT RULE! IMPEACH OBAMA!" read one of the more temperate tweets.
