Barack Obama, as (at least us Americans) should know, was first elected in the 2008 election. Ever since then, our debt has almost doubled, and just this year, he's taken over five vacations. Unemployment has reached extremely high levels, and has only dropped recently due to the fact that people have given up looking for work. He cannot represent our country well with public speech, as seen in the "Uh" Count video, and supports socialism, shown by his heavy amounts of taxes on the wealthy.

And don't try to use the 'racist' argument on me. I would've voted for Herman Cain if he was still in the ballot.

Sorry if this is kind of short, I'm new here.

Impeachment is a formal process in which an official is accused of unlawful activity, the outcome of which, depending on the country, may include the removal of that official from office as well as criminal or civil punishment.

Merriam Webster: to charge with a crime or misdemeanor; specifically : to charge (a public official) before a competent tribunal with misconduct in office

If we accept the MW definition of Impeachment, then we assume that to be impeached, one must be
a) a public official
b) charged with a crime or misdemeanor

Therefore we can say that to be eligible for impeachment, Obama must have committed felony or misdemeanor of some kind. (I think we can assume that he is a public official, being the President and all). We can agree on this, yes?

(By the way- welcome to Debate.org!)
