The Arlin Report unofficial, unscientific but interesting impeachment or treason survey of President Barack Obama:
After receiving comments for a week of this voluntary survey, and I say voluntary only because I did not solicit for the responses, it has come to a close. I know you are all excited to hear the results.
I ask bloggers to respond to the following questions?
1. Should Obama be impeached? 2. Should Obama be tried for treason? 3. Has Obama violated the Constitution and should be held accountable? 4. Has Obama violated the law and the constitution, but should not be impeached?
Results: Impeachment: 45 % Treason: 45% Nothing: 10%
All that wanted to see Obama impeached stated in the least he has violated the Constitution and should be held accountable. About half of those that wanted to see him held for treason, if found guilty, wanted the death penalty (by hanging).
Most of those that were in the 10% believed he was guilty of violating the Constitution or stepping out of his boundaries, but felt it would be a waste of time, that the Senate would not follow through regardless.
Interesting comments: One individual felt Barack O. is the greatest president since J.F.K. and that anyone thinking of impeachment or treason charges are being ridiculous.
Several of those that favored impeachment also favored cleaning house of all Congress. Personally, I have come to like that myself.
The thought of having Joe Biden as president if Obama were removed, was mostly addressed with a joke. Too many to share now.
Obama supporters will say that only those against Obama or racists would respond to the survey anyway. Of course that would be their justification, but I am only speculating. Speaking of which, it was mentioned that impeachment would bring out the race card; and interestingly enough, one individual said they could not use the race card with treason, since even white people have been hanged.
I was a bit disappointed that there were only about 50 responses to the survey, but it did indicate a trend. The question now is, does that trend hold up throughout the nation. It is a good indication that most Americans want the President held accountable for his actions, but have little confidence in Congress to be responsible.
