Framework

PRO is advocating for a substantial shift from the status quo, and one that, given the rules which govern society, must meet a certain standard. From the U.S. Constitution, we see the following with respect to impeachment:

Article II, Section 4: "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 Crime and Misdemeanors" (1).

(1) http://law2.umkc.edu...


In order for PRO to meet the burden of proof which only he holds, he must be able to explain how President Obama has committed an act of treason, bribery, or some other form of high crime or misdemeanor. If he fails to achieve that, you vote negative by default.

Rebuttals

PRO states, "As it concerns the President Of The United States Be Impeached I say yes because of his stupid Obama care thing."

He fails to explain how the "stupid Obama care thing" merits impeachment--how is this treason, bribery, or some other form of high crime or misdemeanor? It's one thing to dislike the ACA and disagree with Obama's policies, and thus to vote against someone who supports them, but another to want to impeach him simply because you disagree. PRO fails to establish this link or to, in any way, advance his BOP.

The United States military is too big and costs too much. It is bigger than the Russian and Chinese military combined. The largest Air Force in the world is the U.S. Air Force, the second is the U.S. Navy. We certainly could cut down our military and still be absolutely fine. George Bush's war in Iraq completely destabilized the region and helped to create the problem of ISIS. The entire middle east is so chaotic today because of America's wars.

I certainly don't like Obama. I really don't like any President, for that matter, but to say Obama should be impeached is ludicrous unless you also believe that George Bush should not only be impeached bu tried for war crimes. Waging war of aggression, torture of enemy combatants, bombing innocents in Iraq, etc...

"If Bush didn't get impeached, then why should Obama? You were lied to for 8 years under Bush and you wanna impeach Obama"
President Obama has weakened America by reducing its military capabilities and its nuclear weapons while the rest of the world has been busily developing nuclear weapons and enlarging their military capabilities. When Obama took office he listened to and acted upon Obama's communist friend George Soros advice, "America, is too big for its britches and needs to be brought down..." and Obama willingly has been doing just that.
George Bush didn't apologize for his country , and George Bush's wife didn't say, "For the first time in my life, I am proud of my country, as Obama's wife did. " George Bush didn't have such stellar communist radical friends as former weathermen Bill Ayers or radical America haters as Obama's Reverent, J. Wright who said, No, no, not God Bless America, but God Damn America."

"Should The President Of The United States Be Impeached..." It is the sole purpose and obligation of those elected to elected public office by the citizens to represent this countries interests and to not do things while in office that reflect badly or cause injury to America. What has Obama and his administration done while he has been president of this country. Obama has apologized for America before the world, Obama has insulted our long-time allies and befriended this countries enemies. Obama has ignored the wishes of the people and advanced the interests of Big Government and exerted more control over the citizens private lives. Obama has ran this nation into debt, money borrowed from America's enemies all the while spending money that the country didn't have but had to borrow in order to cast money about like there was no tomorrow when the money would have to be paid back with interest. "And the Question was,"Should The President Of The United States Be Impeached..."
