The Minnesota chapter of "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment" has more than 500 Facebook members.

You'd think folks might have something better to do than stand above highways and call for something that most assuredly will not happen, but hey, it's a free country.

Buzzfeed characterizes "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment" as "the new fad taking the country by storm." Here's a couple photos from events organized by local chapters of the group elsewhere in America:

The "Overpasses for America: Impeach Obama" website lists 12 reasons why the president should be impeached, including the unconstitutionality of Obamacare, his energy policies (more domestic drilling!), his tolerance for illegal immigrants entering and staying in the country, and so forth. Read about them here.

Today, the Minnesota chapter of the group is taking a day off from railing against Obama and is instead organizing 9/11-commemorating overpass events in Plymouth, Shakopee, and Eagan. But organizers aren't just commemorating the terror attacks against America in 2001. In a move Michele Bachmann would be proud of, they're also honoring the four Americans who lost their lives thanks to Obama's negligence one year ago in Benghazi, Libya.

"most assuredly will not happen" Why not? Oh, thats right. Harry Reid won't let it come to the Senate floor, like most things coming from the House.

What a bunch of idiots - especially as today we mark the anniversary of the biggest security failure in American history by Bush, Cheney and Rice.  If those dolts were in charge during this Syria mess, we'd already be invading Lebanon or some other neighboring country.

It has been a thing for many years. Why dont you wake up city pages. Stop being a PR firm for Barry O Bomber.

Haha, I like the first and last sentence of reason #6: "President Obama has abdicated his responsibility to enforce the laws of the United States against illegal immigration. [...] bypassing the Congress of the United States which has sole authority over immigration matters."

*sigh* He's our first black president. These exist in every state for sure......I love when white folks rediscover the same racism we've experienced the whole time lol.

Both of your pro libertarian arguments only reinforce the fact that its an idiotic philosophy.

Also legalizing all drugs. No one would argue heroin or drugs like it are good for you but when someone uses it they are harming themselves only, no victim. It's a lot like alcohol use. It's bad for your liver but we only punish it when you endanger others, like DUI and such. Plus if we made it legal it would remove the stigma associated with being a junkie and more addicts would be more likely to seek the help they need. Lots of drug addicts don't seek help for fear of being turned into authorities. Other countries have done it with great success.

@Stefanie Megan Brown You have to be just plan stupid. Yes, he the first black president but this isn't about race! Do some research with an open mind and you if you have even a pea for a brain you will see what he is doing to destroy this country!

@Stefanie Megan Brown Please show the rest of us where this movement has anything to do with race. If you see the "president" as "black" "first" and you assume these people are all "white folks" YOU are the racist

@Kevin Toskey No! The Klan didn't change its name. This isn't about Race! Pull your head out of your backside, clear your brain and do some research. First the Klan was started by the Democrats. Not that the Republicans are much better. But this President is destroying our country.

@Diane Rasmussen And if Obama was doing his job right, there would be less unemployment! Obamacare is forcing companies to reduce hours worked, making workers to become part time employees. Please do some research with an open mind and maybe you will see what he is doing to our country!

@paixao72 @MNjoe Yeah? He hasn't dropped a bomb and is handling everything through diplomacy and the THREAT of force.  Obama is the best president we've had in a generation and the true "clowns" are the people that are too stupid to see that, yourself included.

@paixao72  I just gave you a list (that you requested) of great things that Obama has done/ is doing for this country.  Tell me a couple of things that Obama is doing to "destroy" this country. You can't  - you have nothing but mindless rants and name-calling on your side. Your last president tanked the economy and got us into 2 wars - one of them completely unnecessary. He added trillions to the national debt and none of this mattered to you dolts until Obama took office. You keep screaming Bengazi but completely ignore the 9 attacks under GWB in which a couple of hundred people died. Is that enough for you or do I need to go on? The Republican party and the Taliban are the two major things I see trying to destroy this country.

@meesh427 @paixao72 Wow, that's the best you can do. Believe what you want, but if you would just do some research with an open mind. Stop believing everything you hear and just maybe you will start seeing the truth.

@iiaann77c oh, save us the trouble and name one. Then explain why we should not consider you a complete fool and consider impeachment plausible. 

FYI - it is not plausible

@digitalprotocol @iiaann77c haha once again insulting people with no evidence. i was talking about doing research on Obama's impeachable offences (witch there has been over 13 separate ones). so how would you like to try and insult me now?

@MNjoe 1st of all GWB wasn't my president! Now for your POS president, lets start with Bengazi seeing you brought it up. He is Hiding facts, intimidating witnesses, refusing to turn over information to the Congress and doing the same on the NSA scandal, IRS, DOJ and Fast and Furious scandals. Now lets go to Obamacare, This will raise the cost of insurance, brake the 40 hour work week and that will cost jobs. Then we have immigration, we can't employ our American workers and he wants to let how many illegals into our country? And they are still coming in as he has all but stopped protecting our boarders. He has doubled our National debt, he's still wants to get involved in Syria and I bet you have never served in the armed forces or seen combat you POS. Yes, I do know he could have dropped the bombs without approval from Congress. The only reason he didn't was because the American people raised hell about it. I could go on forever about your POS president, but its a waste of time trying to explain facts to someone who is Brain dead. You need to pull your head out of your backside and get air, and while you are at it stop drinking Obama's Kool-Aid.

@digitalprotocol @MNjoe @paixao72 What a thoughtful and insightful reply - exactly what I expect from a-holes like yourself. Republicans have assholed themselves out of another presidential win in the next generation. Keep hating on gays, women and minorities and you're doing half our work for us.

MNjoe
MNjoe topcommenter

@paixao72 @MNjoe Oh, let's see... he ended two wars saving thousands more American soldiers' lives as well as trillions of more American taxpayer dollars, finally made some progress in turning around the extremely fucked up American healthcare system, helped to get equal rights for GLBT Americans including soldiers who can now serve openly without fear. Should I go on or is that a good start for you? Brainwashed? Why didn't you use "drinking the kool-aid?" Those are usually the retorts of the uneducated as I've found most Obama-haters to be.  And P.S. - You DO know he could've dropped those bombs without Congress' approval at any point, don't you? I'm thinking you don't.

paixao72

@MNjoe @paixao72 He was forced to by the people of America, if he had his way he would be dropping them! Best President ever! Wow, you really must be brainwashed. Name one good thing that he has done for America!

@paixao72 @MNjoe Scrolll up moron, It's in a previos reply to another of your moronic statements. Most of the civilized world thinks ObamaCare is a good thing. That's why he won the election. All of your "scandals" are complete BS Faux News crap and again - NOTHING will or has come from them. Race baiting and aiding the enemy are more of your moronic opinions. As for Bengazi, there were full and complete Senate hearings of which I'm sure you didn't watch a moment or, even if you had, would be able to comprehend any of it.  And ooooh, there's the super intellegent kool-aid reference, which you spelled wrong and I'll bet have no idea what it means or where it came from.

@MNjoe 1st of all GWB wasn't my president! And for your POS president I'm still waiting for the list I don't see it in your reply. But lets start with Bengazi, why is Obama hiding facts, intimidating witnesses, and refusing to give evidences. The same goes with the NSA scandal, IRS scandal, Fast and Furious, DOJ scandal, Immigration, Race baiting, Obamacare, Jobs, Aiding the Enemy, Always on vacation, Gun control, ETC. The list can go on forever. Pull your head out of your backside and get some air, oh why your at it stop drinking Obama's cool aid.
