Impeach Obama

No, I'm not calling for Obama's impeachment. But it seems inevitable that someone will at some point, because... well, because they can and because someone else tried to do their guy in one of the previous two presidencies!

Place your predictions for when the first member of Congress will introduce formal articles of impeachment on the floor for the new President.

Please specify the date.

I'll go with a re-election victory for Obama, and delay my predicted impeachment calls until August 23rd, 2013 before the mid-terms.

Updated Terms:
Winner gets a box of Ritz crackers. Two people cannot pick the same day and closest date will win. No Price is Right rules about going over. In the event of a tie, I will part with two boxes of crackers.

Updated Picks:

2009
12/1: General Zod

2011
1/29: Venusian

2013
8/23: Thor Simpson

2014
2/20: TheBigDave
4/1: VinVega
10/15: Lurker Dan

2017
1/19: Canadian Bacon

You only get one of these threads Thor.

I'm down for April 1st 2014. What an awesome April Fool's. "Hey Obama, you're being impeached...Just kidding! No, not really, you are being impeached! lol"

You'll have to bookmark this or something. It will take a while before we know the results of who won the prize.

Re: Impeach Obama

If Bush wasn't impeached for his "war crimes," I don't see Obama being impeached.*



*This assumes Obama doesn't screw around on Michelle.

the question wasn't will he get impeached, but rather when someone will try to have him impeached.

I go with October 15, 2014.

Re: Impeach Obama

Alright, I'll keep a tally in the first post of this thread. Winner gets a box of Ritz crackers. Two people cannot pick the same day and closest date will win. No Price is Right rules about going over. In the event of a tie, I will part with two boxes of crackers.

Never. Although I reserve the right to start another (Un)Secret Muslim thread if Obama ever makes it official.

And if he gets it like that in a text message.. that's just good comedy right there.

Please put me down for 12/1/2009.. People will really be starting to look at a bleak Christmas and realize they were better off with that guy that talked funny..

I know this probably won't happen but I think some bonehead congressman will try something sooner rather than later.

I thought you were trying to win. Impeachments always come in the 2nd term. Less chance of blowback on the opposing party when they lay down the thunder.

Your tacit implication of the singular seems a bit of an understatement, IMO.

I try to be kind. Sometimes to a fault.

I think they will strike while the iron is hot. The economy isn't going to stay like this forever, the Health Care issue will eventually be resolved... I think someone will throw something against the wall and see if it sticks. I also don't think Obama will be serving a second term even if things do slightly improve.

Re: Impeach Obama

How can he be impeached when he isn't even really the president. He was born in Kenya.

Re: Impeach Obama

I'm going to say Feb of 2028 a full 16 years after he and the Dems have overthrown the Gov't taken all the guns, put people into fema camps, killed all of the old people and taxed the rich until they are poor...

You know what finally breaks the camels back and causes impeachment? Obama decides that he doesn't just want all the power, he wants a box of crackers from Thor, so he picks that date and impeaches himself
