Impeach the President? Like we've got nothing better to do ...
Articles like this really get my ire up. Today CNN posted the following article: GOP Rep.: House 'could probably get the votes' to impeach Obama.
First off, let me just say - I am SO over hearing about this. In this day and age (and with all the technology we have available at our finger tips) - there is no way the birth of a presidential candidate wasn't 100% vetted and confirmed prior to him even running for President.
Secondly, regardless of whether or not you like him - the American people elected Obama as President for not 1, but 2 terms. The GOP needs to get over it. If they want to start focusing on candidates for the 2016 election, that's one thing, but quit wasting the American people's time and hard earned money talking about impeaching Obama because you don't believe he was born in the United States - obviously the people that voted for him don't really care.
Lastly, every time this comes up - it costs Americans money. The more the GOP sit around and talk about Obama and his birth, the less time they're sitting around and talking about issues that matter. Issues like reducing the deficit, bettering education and the working environment for Americans and their families, immigration, approaching sequestration - ALL of these issues are more important than whether or not Obama was born in the U.S.
I'd be curious to hear what others think about this - do you believe Obama's birth matters and why or do you believe it's all just a big waste of time and money?
