Senator Lindsay Graham it talking about impeaching President Obama.
Impeachment over this would not be wise:
1) The President is Commander in Chief and so he is the person that runs wars, not Congress. President Obama has argued that Congress did not have the power to impose this restriction on presidential powers. One can argue back and forth on this, but there should be a very clear violation in an impeachment. This is not a clear violation.
2) Republicans impeached President Clinton for lying about cheating on his wife. Impeachment is not just a legal question; it’s also a political question. Lying about cheating on your wife is not a political high crime or misdemeanor. If anything, it would have been more outrageous if Clinton had boasted of his cheating. Republicans lost a lot of credibility with the Clinton impeachment that may take decades to regain.
3) The Senate is run by Democrats loyal to Obama and there is no way the Senate will convict. An impeachment by the House will not remove Obama from office.
4) For millions of voters, there is an almost religious devotion to Barak Obama. An attempt to remove him from office, successful or not, would create enormous ill will that would take decades to dissipate.
Like it or not, we are stuck with President Obama until 2017.
