As the United States continues on its downward trajectory,thanks to the policies of the Obama administration,the debate rages about whether he’s doing it all on purpose or whether he is merely incompetent. When talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh discusses this,he concludes that “it doesn’t matter” because the result is the same either way.
Limbaugh misses a critical distinction. If Obama is incompetent,it means he must be voted out of office. If he is intentionally destroying the country as it was founded,it means he has malicious intent and must be removed through impeachment and a Senate trial. It would also mean that he is a domestic enemy.
It wouldn’t matter if Al Capone were president of the United States,impeachment and a Senate trial is the only way to remove a sitting president from office. As for Capone,the Chicago mob boss was guilty of many things,the worst of which was murder. The feds knew this but couldn’t prove it. They also knew Capone was guilty of income tax evasion,which they could and did prove. Perhaps he wasn’t convicted of his most egregious crimes,but it didn’t matter;he could do no more damage.
If this administration is intentionally destroying our nation (at least Rush doesn’t dismiss this possibility),the responsibility to remove Obama necessarily falls to the 535 congressmen who took an oath to defend us against an occupant of the White House who is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. Maybe they cannot prove he is doing it on purpose but if they know it,they should impeach and convict for a crime they can prove. It is their Constitutional duty to do so. With a solid majority in the House,Speaker John Boehner would succeed,with the right message and the right case. Even if the House impeached and the Senate did not convict,Obama might think twice before usurping any more power from the legislative branch.
In May 2010,then-Republican minority whip,Eric Cantor spoke at the Heritage Foundation. Someone in the audience asked,“In light of what Obama has done…what would he have to do differently to be defined as a domestic enemy?”
Cantor replied:“Listen,let me respond very forthright [sic.] to that. No one thinks the president is a domestic enemy”….
