The most important point is that Mr. Obama does not consider himself bound by the Constitution. He could not have made that more clear. He has drawn a line in the concrete and we cannot ignore it. Those who currently hold political office, and who want to keep our system of government, need to act now. Surely, rejection of the Constitution is grounds for impeachment and charges should be filed. In addition, there are many other actions that Congressmen can and should take—actions that will tell Mr. Obama that we have seen where he is going and we will not let our country go without a fight. At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Benjamin Franklin was asked what form of government had been created. “A republic,” he replied, “if you can keep it.” We are losing it. If Mr. Obama’s reach for unprecedented power is not stopped, that will be the end. Everyone who values his life and liberty should find some way to say “No!” “Not now!” “Not yet!”

Unfortunately, BHO44 is a “true believer”. It’s yet to be seen of all the opportunists will follow him down the road to Perdition.
The Constitution enshrines the power of impeachment in the minority party.
To muster the needed votes, the majority must essentially ask the minority: “Really, seriously, you agree with this?”
Then and only then can the most powerful man in the world be rebuked.
But based on Pelosi and Reid, I would not hold out much hope.
The particular “Titanic” is going down hard!
