Obama impeachment a possibility, says Ron Paul

..................
Obama impeachment a possibility, says Ron Paul - Dan Hirschhorn - POLITICO.com

Quote:
Ron Paul said Monday that President Barack Obama?s targeted killing of Anwar al-Awlaki might be an impeachable offense.

Asked at a Manchester, N.H. town hall meeting about last week?s killing of the American-born Al Qaeda leader, the Texas congressman said impeachment would be ?possible,? but that he wants to know more about how the administration ?flouted the law.?

Paul called the killing a movement toward ?tyranny.?

?I put responsibility on the president because this is obviously a step in the wrong direction,? Paul said. ?We have just totally disrespected the Constitution.?

The comments once again put Paul at odds with his Republican rivals over foreign policy and the war on terror in the latest indication of how his foreign policy views stray far from Republican orthodoxy even in a GOP that?s taken on an increasingly isolationist bent. Candidates like Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney ? who included the president in a list of people he commended in a statement released Friday ? have generally been supportive of the killing. No one else in the field has spoken out against it.

But Paul?s stuck with the civil libertarians who?ve criticized the targeted killing of an American citizen without public due process.

Paul, speaking at the University of New Hampshire?s Manchester campus as part of a brief swing through the state, also made another pitch for eliminating the federal income tax.

?If our lives and our liberty are our own, we ought to be able to keep the fruits of our labor,? he said.

But he modulated a bit when asked about eliminating social welfare programs, offering a caution that he said ?might be a bit too pragmatic for some.?

?I have an ideal of what we should strive for and a goal, and that would be no social services,? he said. ?But for me it?s trying to work our way out of this. ? I don?t argue we should drop those cold. I don?t even believe in closing down the Federal Reserve in one day.?

Libertarians never seem right in the head. Communism fell apart because of human nature and crapitalism has the same human flaws like greed destroying it.
RP would have said the same thing if Bin Laden had been an American.

People need someone to keep cantaloupe Listeria in check and we darn sure needed oversight on Wall Street and the banks so why would anyone imagine 300+ million people don't need a structure empowered to control excesses and crooks?

the whole republican list of candidates have devolved into a bash fast of who can hate obama the most, instead of actually working to solve issues.... for the american people.

Man, the right is having a bad day. They're so annoyed at Obama that they've found themselves siding with both the ACLU and a known terrorist who personally recruited and trained dozens of American Muslims to attack Americans and innocents throughout the world.

The only way the hypocrisy could get any more amusing is if Obama took a swipe at the Westboro Baptist Church and the Teabaggers defended them!

This kinda offends me, not that you would care. I don't care what color he is, he could be pink, green, orange or yellow. It's not his ethnicity that I dislike, its his socialist principles. You act like anyone who isn't liberal is racist, far from it.

Why do you always refer to The Teaparty as Teabagers. Does it make you somehow feel superior to diminish someone's political views that doesn't agree with you? Should I start call all liberals, Libtards cause I don't agree with some of their positions on issues. Come on guys, we can have civil discussions with out resorting to school yard tauntings.
