I am hearing news of a many people making a move to impeach President Obama. But I can't seem to find any accurate information. Does anyone have any information on this. Would you be for or against an Obama Impeachment?

I could use some political entertainment besides Syria, Africa, & India/Pakistan.

Ok, I have been busy. But I have finally been able to come up with a logical explanation for you.
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. I seen a report that stated the petition had 50,000 signatures before being stopped by the White House.
1. 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.”
In July 2011, Congress specifically rejected the Obama administration’s attempt to seek approval for war on Libya but the White House later supported a NATO-led assault anyway, terming it a “kinetic” action.
Obama tried to legitimize his failure to obtain Congressional approval for military involvement by sending a letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner in which he said the military assault was “authorized by the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council.”
In March, Congressman Walter Jones introduced a House Resolution which expressed,“The sense of Congress that the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.”
2. The other reasons listed on the petition to impeach Obama include appointing so-called czars without Senate approval. When Obama signed a 2011 budget package into law which removed funding for Obama’s advisers on climate change, the auto industry, health care and urban affairs, Obama attached a signing statement indicating he would ignore this provision, prompting Rep. Steve Scalise to accuse the President of acting like a “dictator” in choosing which laws to follow and which to ignore.
3.The petition also notes that,“Forcing US citizens to get health insurance whether they want it or not,” under Obamacare is unconstitutional.
4.During a recent appearance on Hannity, Republican Congressman Peter King also suggested that Obama should be impeached over the Benghazi cover up.
5. Many people are wanting to impeach Obama under his expected gun control laws that would violate our 2nd amendment rights.
6. Dealing with Iran. Any attack against Iran, a country of only 70,000 people. Unless the U.S is directly attacked or there is proof of an attack against the U.S. The president has no constitutional authority to take this country to another war. Even Joe Biden said that he would make a move to impeach Obama if this were to happen.
7. An American military attack on Syria could effectively lead to the impeachment of President Barack Obama. Congressmen say that any war without congressional authorization would be “unconstitutional”.
Republican Representative Walter B. Jones Jr. has come up with the resolution demanding Obama’s impeachment in case his administration starts another military action without the approval of Congress. This came as a reaction to the American Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announcing that in order to carry out the offensive, the US military needs permission from the UN and NATO alone.
Jones’s resolution states that the prime authority to rule on the attack is the US Congress, but not international bodies be it NATO or UN.

I was reading that list of reasons for impeachment, and on #6 it reads Iran, a country of only 70,000 people. I think they are close to 80 million people in Iran.

back to the same lame bullshit once again, eh?
#25 Jan 21, 2013
Well for 1. We never went to war with Libya.
2.It is job to appoint people to such positions with or without approval.
3.This issue has already been decided by the supreme court.
4.Benghazi cover up ? Has not been proven true and even if it does has not implicated the president at all.
5. Really impeach someone for something they are expected to do ?
6.Once again you cant impeach someone for something that hasn't happened yet.
7.Same thing with 7 as 5 and 6.
