Of all the improbable scenario’s to remove President Obama from office, there is one that the birthers missed. They don’t have to prove anything. They don’t have to find “high crimes.” All they have to do is pass a Constitutional amendment to do away with the executive branch of government.
This solution is not entirely out of the blue, because it’s happening in my own town. While everybody attempting to change our Mayor-Council form of government to a Council form says it’s not about personalities, digging into the issue always leads to a number of problems centering on the current mayor. One allegation says that one of the Mayor’s cronies used a city Air Card to run up a $500 bill one month, including watching the classic film, “Lesbian Vampire Killers” (that got quite a reaction at the town meeting). Whatever the details, one objective fact is that we have a 150% turnover rate in town staff and to quote one councilmember, “that’s a problem.”
Those who want a change are not just banging their keyboards in protest, but have gone through the legal process to call a special election, scheduled for next Tuesday.
