The Obama Impeachment Bible 
 Bergdahl furor gives new mo to Andrew McCarthy’s book.
 By Jeffrey Lord – 6.10.14

“Be careful how you make those statements, gentleman.” Barack Hussein Obama had been president of the United States for all of two months. He was lecturing the titans of American finance who were struggling to explain to him, a man with no meaningful business experience, how high salaries are necessary if American companies are to compete for talent in a global market.
“The public isn’t buying that,” scoffed the president. He wasn’t talking about the public, though. “My administration,” he warned, “is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.” The pitchforks: that’s his public.
So begins Andrew McCarthy’s new book Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment. This book is  definitively authoritative,  a straightforward and objective look at a president whose appetite for lawlessness, fueled by an Alinskyite sense of self-righteousness, is as troubling in its own right as it is a disturbing warning about future presidents who might attempt to build on this particular Obama legacy. As the story about the president and the pitchforks illustrates, this is a president who sees himself not as faithfully executing his office — the rule of law — but sees himself instead, as McCarthy notes in his introduction, as the “ruler of law.”
