If Obama is so obviously guilty in these scandals, why hasn't the House voted to impeach him?

Impeachment requires a simple majority vote in the House, and Republicans have the numbers. If Obama is so guilty why hasn't the House already voted to initiate impeachment proceedings?


@ Athena - So we agree that Obama has not committed an impeachable offense? It's a start.

    Because the criminal Senate won't convict.

    We are forced to wait until after the 2014 midterms

    1. Because the Senate tries an impeachment, and they won't vote to actually impeach, so it would be irrelevant anyway.

    2. What exactly do you think he is personally guilty? I have seen no evidence directly tying him to the IRS scandal, which is the ONLY one that could possibly be a legit impeachment issue. And I highly doubt you are privy to some secret info that nobody else seems to know about.

    You might want to read the Constitution.

    While Obama may be "guilty" as sin, do these crimes rise to the level of impeachable?

    THAT is what has to be investigated and decided.

    We are a nation of laws and even the President gets the benefit of the doubt.

    The answer is simple.

    What happens if we impeach Obama and he is removed from office?

    Why, we end up with President Biden. Ugh!

    Because he isn't guilty of anything. He isn't responsible for everything an underling in his administration does. IF that were the case, Bush should have been impeached for Monica Goodling using a political test to hire civil service employees in the justice department. That is both illegal and against regulations.

    Guilty of what ? I assume you didn't vote for him or you just didn't vote at all !

    They can impeach him just to have a partisan Senate try him and then make us believe nothing was wrong.. The Democrats will defend their president no matter what he does.
