While many have speculated over the potential of impeaching Pres. Barack Obama, several members of Congress have finally filed.
Note: The situation is somewhat mus-represented in this article. This is not actually an impeachment resolution but a resolution meant to start legal action by the House to force Obama to obey the law via the courts. It is an alternative that does not require Senate approval. If the action passes and is successful in court, it would not remove Obama, but a court would declare some of his actions illegal. Could be seen as preliminary, but it is not an impeachment resolution. It may be the start of a process that leads to impeachment, but is not the start of the formal impeachment process.
On the other hand, it may also be seen as just another half-measure and delaying tactic by the House, who already has the power to rein Obama in, if they want to use it, via the so-called power of the purse.
Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. (Winston Churchill)
