    from the article:

    The National Black Republican Association (NBRA) based in Sarasota, FL, headed by Chairman Frances Rice, filed Articles of Impeachment against President Barack Obama with the following language:

    We, black American citizens, in order to free ourselves and our fellow citizens from governmental tyranny, do herewith submit these Articles of Impeachment to Congress for the removal of President Barack H. Obama, aka, Barry Soetoro, from office for his attack on liberty and commission of egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.

    On July 4, 1776, the founders of our nation declared their independence from governmental tyranny and reaffirmed their faith in independence with the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791. Asserting their right to break free from the tyranny of a nation that denied them the civil liberties that are our birthright, the founders declared:

    “When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” - Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

    They can't really "file" anything given that the impeachment power rests solely in the Congress, but it's always nice to see nutters with a poor understanding of government, regardless of their race, undertaking meaningless political shows.

    Actually the article says that they "filed articles of impeachment" which a non-congressional body flat out can't do.

    But even were that the case it still is not filing and still does exactly nothing with regards to impeaching anyone...

    It is essentially "conservative group complains loudly about Obama in press release," which frankly is not exactly news given that it's been going on since before he ever took office. The fact that they worded their press release in faux-legalese as a grand show of makebelieve that they are doing something that they flat out have no power to do doesn't change that analysis.

    I'm not particularly happy with him but that doesn't mean we need to start trying to impeach every POTUS we don't personally like. Makes for a bad precedent.

    And we had posters on here wanting to impeach Bush. Now we have those wanting to impeach Obama. As I said it makes for a bad precedent.

    Truth.

    Either we end up wasting time and resources like this on every POTUS, or it becomes like the boy he cried wolf, and when we really need someone impeached nobody wants to hear it because the process has been so politicized and trivialized.

    And like impeachment, Psalm 109 can be pulled out with every POTUS as well... especially when we view things through such partisan filters to where a disagreement in policy is because the other guy must be evil.

    This country doesn't benefit from this.

    Most likely. The DOJ, IRS and NSA will be on their doorstep within a week.

    So do trillions of dollars in new debt. It irks me the man who presided over our largest ever debt increase, called us "broke" but told us this to get elected:

    Factor in this Obamacare mess and I'm not sure he doesn't deserve to be disgraced, though history will probably have to take that on. But I agree, impeachment is not going to mend the damage and only deepens our dysfunction.

    why stop there? might as well move on to verse 9 (“Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.”) seeing how his re election happened and impeachment isn't.
