Obama Impeachment Urged By David Dewhurst Over Benghazi, Health Law & Border Control

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst wants to impeach President Barack Obama over the tragedy that saw four Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya, last year.

Dewhurst called for Obama to be impeached over his handling of the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate, as well as the national health care law.

The comments were made during a recent Tarrant County Tea Party forum and were first reported on by Twitter by a reporter for the Texas Observer.

The account was later confirmed by the Texas Tribune, which said that Dewhurst, a former CIA officer, feels "very strongly about the tragedy in Benghazi."

"Congress should consider impeaching the president over the tragedy," Dewhurst said.

He also feels Obama "should be held accountable" for the "failure to secure the border and the gross overreach of the federal government under Obamacare."

Even Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who bested Dewhurst in a primary election last year on the way to winning his Senate seat, wouldn't go that far.

Cruz conceded this summer there aren't enough votes in the U.S. Senate to impeach Obama, so it was a waste of time to even discuss the topic.

Still, the subject has been mentioned by other officials, such as Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan and even Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., an Obama friend.

The U.S. government, meanwhile, is still shut down.

Well if it's Congress that wants to impeach him, he's got nothing to worry about.

Republicans: Want to impeach Obama for incompetence, too incompetent to know what impeachment actually is.

Your President is not a man. He is typical black, run up debt, don't follow through on anything, don't take care of your people. He is a sorry excuse for a real man.

The most egotistical & arrogant in Presidential history. You can get away with that if you have something to offer besides, debt, high unemployment, division & hopelessness. Hope & Change and how does that taste now? How long is he gonna play the race card? A Presidents job is to bring two sides together. He will go down in history as the worst! Yeah- impeach his sorry ass.
