If the president exercises his authority as commander in chief to engage in military action, we should impeach him! So says Representative Duncan Hunter.
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) told the Washington Times Tuesday that the House could impeach President Obama if he authorizes a military strike in Syria without congressional approval.
“I think he’s breaking the law if he strikes without congressional approval,” Hunter said. “And if he proceeds without Congress providing that authority, it should be considered an impeachable offense.”
Actually, the president would not be breaking the law. He has the authority to do that. He did not have to ask congress for approval, but he chose to.
Whether you agree with intervention or not, it would not be an impeachable offense.
The point at which this becomes comical is when you consider that these are the same yahoos who want to impeach the president for allegedly doing nothing (why didn’t he call in Captain America?) in Benghazi.
Do something. No, don’t do something.
