Texas Lt. Governor Calls for Obama’s Impeachment

359bf-impeachobamaflorida-4Bud Gillet reports for CBS11 in Dallas-Fort Worth, Oct. 15, 2013 that, appearing at a Tea Party candidate forum, Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, who is running for re-election, said that our freedoms are being trampled on and Obama should be impeached.

Later Dewhurst fleshed out his thoughts for the Texas Observer’s Christopher Hooks:

“I think this President, Barack Obama, has disregarded federal law. He has tried to do things which are not authorized under federal law. Things he’s disregarded such as immigration.  He’s not, not following our federal drug laws. And [referring to the exemptions and extensions given to unions and big businesses]  he has created winners and losers in Obamacare where he has no authority.

I am very concerned about Benghazi, in which all of the national news reporting indicated that live video was streaming into the White House situation room.  Which means there was a(n) overhead platform, probably a drone in the area.  At least that’s what it tells me. And for not mobilizing some response to protect the ambassador and those three Americans is just outrageous to me. Just outrageous.”

Dewhurst called his comments those of a private citizen and, when pressed on that issue by the Texas Observer, refused to  back down. The lieutenant governor said, “That happens to be my view, that the man has committed crimes that do not warrant his staying in office.”

CBS-11 Political Analyst John Weekley says Dewhurst should be taken seriously. Not only is the office of Lieutenant Governor the most powerful office in Texas, Dewhurst was an intelligence officer for both the U.S. Air Force and later the CIA. Weekley noted that “For Dewhurst to say, basically, ‘I think we ought to impeach the President,’ is a big deal. I think the Lt. Governor looks at the President’s very open statement that he was going to work around the Constitution, and work around the Congress.  And use the executive branch to basically create law in many cases. I think he’s expressing his opinion that the President has way, way stepped over the line and that’s where he stands.”

Weekley recognizes that while the U.S. House probably could vote to impeach, there’s no way removing Obama from office would pass the Senate.

Darlene Ewing
Dallas County’s Democratic party chair Darlene Ewing, of course, takes a different view.

She calls Dewhurst’s comments a desperate political ploy and the “wacko meanderings of a candidate that’s desperate for the Tea Party’s support.”

The obese Ewing then pontificates, “Impeachment is not some internet ranting that we throw around. If it wasn’t so pathetic I would say that the Lt. Governor should read the Constitution; obviously he hasn’t seen it in awhile.”

No, Ms. Ewing. It is *you* who should read the Constitution for by your comment you’ve shown not only that you’re an Obama butt-kisser, you’re also deliberately ignoring the many egregious acts of the POS in the White House. Not to mention the fact that the POS still hasn’t provided convincing documentary proof of his constitutional eligibility to be President of the United States of America.
