Impeach Obama Petition Reaches Threshold For Official Response
Effort dovetails secession fever sweeping America

A petition to impeach President Obama for repeatedly violating the Constitution has surpassed the required number of signatures to mandate an official White House response.
The petition, which is posted on the ‘We The People’ section of whitehouse.gov, lists four different examples of how Obama has acted unconstitutionally.
The primary reason is Obama’s failure to obtain congressional authorization for the war on Libya last year. Under Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, the power to declare war lies with Congress.
In June last year, President Obama arrogantly expressed his hostility to the rule of law when he dismissed the need to get congressional authorization to commit the United States to a military intervention in Libya, churlishly dismissing criticism and remarking, “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question.”
