The congressman who walked out during President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), is considering filing articles of impeachment against Obama.

After walking out of Obama’s State of the Union speech upon hearing the president threaten to violate the Constitution and rule by decree, Republican U.S. Congressman Steve Stockman of Texas says he is now seeking public support for introducing articles of impeachment. Recent surveys suggest that about 50 percent of Americans want to impeach Obama for a wide range of major scandals, and articles of impeachment have already been filed in the House against disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder, who is currently in criminal contempt of Congress.
In its literature, the Convention of the States organization misstates historical facts and misunderstands the law of agency.
Americans overwhelmingly rejected bizarre threats from an increasingly unpopular Obama to rule by decree, surveys revealed after his State of the Union speech. Despite trying to artificially divide America into different collectivist classes in need of his supposedly benevolent protection and assistance — an age-old ploy used by statists sometimes referred to as “divide and conquer” — women, black leaders, Hispanic activists, small-business owners, and other members of collectivist categories rejected the narrative, too.

Following Obama’s radical State of the Union threats to bypass Congress and impose his unconstitutional agenda on America by decree, more than a few lawmakers in both chambers have expressed outrage and announced efforts to rein in the administration. Among other comments, Republican congressmen and senators said the “lawless” and “imperial presidency” of Obama must be restrained. Other legislators said the president was behaving like a “king” or even a “socialistic dictator” — and that the pledge to violate his oath of office and rule by decree needed to be urgently addressed.
After a devastating 2013 for Obama and perceptions of his radical agenda — indeed, a majority of the public now says he is incompetent and a threat to freedom — the president promised in his State of the Union speech to accelerate the imposition of central planning and economic fascism on America. If Congress refuses to cooperate, he will use “executive action.” From seizing more land and attacking gun rights to redistributing wealth and working to get the “youngest children” into government care that “they need,” the president vowed to impose his extreme vision — fundamentally at odds with the U.S. Constitution — all on his own if need be.
At his January 28 State of the Union Speech, Obama is expected to formally announce the acceleration of his unconstitutional plot to “fundamentally transform” America — regardless of whether or not Congress approves. Instead of adhering to the U.S. Constitution as his oath of office requires, the president and his top aides have said repeatedly that Obama’s radical agenda will be foisted on the nation via decree — so-called “executive orders” and “executive actions” — if lawmakers do not promptly roll over. Critics and members of Congress, however, are already outraged.
