The NoBots have been busy trying to redefine “natural born citizen” by denying that it comes to us from the British Common Law. But now GOP operative Floyd Brown, in an article in WorldNetDaily has been busy trying to redefine the British Common law itself , this time the definition of “impeachment”.
Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution reads: “The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
The key phrase here is “high crimes and misdemeanors,” a concept in English common law well-known to our Founding Fathers, but grossly misunderstood in this day and age. “High crimes and misdemeanors” essentially means bad behavior….
Go read the article yourself. I DID NOT MAKE THIS UP. The article goes on to say:
In other words, “high crimes and misdemeanors” does not refer to a criminal act. Our Founding Fathers fully intended to allow for the removal of the president for actions which include: gross incompetence, negligence and distasteful behavior.
For those who mistakenly hold the illusion that impeaching Barack Hussein Obama would be a simple matter of “playing politics,” the founders fully intended that the impeachment of a sitting president be a political act….
Impeachment is no more or less than the recall of an elected official who isn’t up to the job.
I see this as proof of the low regard the birther leaders have for their followers. They think they are idiots–complete idiots. Personally, I think it’s time to impeach Floyd Brown, Rush Limbaugh, WorldNetDaily and the whole bunch for “distasteful behavior” and “public stupidity”.
