Another of those crazy assertion from world Net Daily that is to good to ignore, even if it’s batshit crazy enough to be laughed at.
WASHINGTON — Worse than Richard Nixon. An unprecedented abuse of powers. The most un-American president in the nation’s history.
President Richard Nixon
Nat Hentoff does not think much of President Obama.
And now, the famous journalist says it is time to begin looking into impeachment.
Hentoff sees the biggest problem as Obama’s penchant to rule by executive order when he can’t convince Congress to do things his way.
The issue jumped back into the headlines last week when, just before his first Cabinet meeting of 2014, Obama said, “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone … and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions.”
“Apparently he doesn’t give one damn about the separation of powers,” Hentoff told WND. “Never before in our history has a president done these things.”
And just to make sure everyone knew how extremely serious he regarded the situation, the journalist added, “This is the worst state, I think, the country has ever been in.”
President Barack Obama
Read “The Case for Impeachment” and know why Obama has got to go before America is done for …
Many have regarded Hentoff as the conscience of civil libertarianism and liberalism for decades.
Recognized as one of the foremost authorities on the Bill of Rights and the Supreme Court, Hentoff was a columnist and staff writer with The Village Voice for 51 years, from 1957 until 2008, when his columns began appearing in WND.
Hentoff left the Voice after he looked into the abortion industry, was shocked by what he found and had a falling-out with colleagues.
The First Amendment expert still hews left on many issues, railing against former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, the prison at Guantanamo Bay and the National Defense Authorization Act.
But he hasn’t liked Obama from the start.
“Within a few months after he was elected, I wrote a column saying he was going to be the most destructive, dangerous president we’ve ever had,” he said.
Hentoff said people he’d known for years told him to stop being so negative and to give Obama a chance.
Let’s be honest here, I would love to see Obama Impeached, it is my personal opinion that no other President in US History has ever been as deserving of Impeachment as Obama, nor for that matter has the subject of Impeachment been discussed as much regarding any other US President. The facts however remain what they are. The Democrats do not care what a Democrat President does, they will not support Impeaching a Democrat President. Obama could rape a 10 year old blond haired blue eyed little girl on national television and then murder her, and eat her and the Democrats would to a single individual justify his actions as 100 percent acceptable and reasonable. The Republicans on the other hand would scream, shout and pull their hair out in public, but when time to file articles of Impeachment came, they would refuse to file those articles out of the fear of losing their places at the seats of power and corruption.
Why the Democrats fear Obama being impeached is really a mystery.
Sign the petition from Daily Kos and Democrats to send a message to the GOP: Drop the bogus impeachment talk and get back to work.
Instead of focusing on issues that matter to the American people––like extending unemployment benefits and raising the minimum wage––Republicans in Congress are busy drumming up bogus charges and talking about impeaching President Obama.
Here’s the good news: We have a real opportunity to end the GOP’s disastrous control of Congress. In 2014, we can elect a Congress that is actually willing to work with the president and for the American people.

My best guess on this subject, it’s a Democrat fear mongering tactic being used by Democrat strategists to raise money, the Democrats know that Democrat candidates are going to take a brutal beating in 2014 thanks to Obamacare and they are trying to raise as much cash for those battles as they can. When the facts are against you, you have to find something else to fight with, fighting a campaign of lies and smears takes a whole damned lot of money, so the Democrats are raising as much as they can.
