Congressman: We could impeach Obama


Let’s do it.
Check it out:

One member of Congress believes there are enough votes in the House to impeach President Obama, but he says such an effort might damage the country because of the Democratic Party grip on the Senate.

A House impeachment vote would mean nothing without a conviction in the Senate, points out Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas.

He, like others in Congress, is back in his home district facing constituents.

Buzzfeed reported he responded Saturday to a question from a constituent at an open house.

The Constitution requires a president to be a natural-born citizen, which the Founders apparently defined as the offspring of two citizens of the nation. Obama’s father never was a U.S. citizen.

The issue got so much attention during Obama’s first term that he presented a document he claimed was his birth certificate from the state of Hawaii.
